Randi and Nathaniel subject themselves to the first three episodes of the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon: “The Night of No Tomorrow,” “The Eye of the Beholder,” and “The Hall of Bones.” It takes some investigative journalism on Randi’s part to learn more about the pre-pubescent heroes of the show, but she breaks down their classes, voice actors, and, like, character names. Spoiler: Diana and Eric are funny, and everyone else is kind of forgettable.
In this episode, Randi and Nathaniel manage to both praise Frank Welker (Uni the Unicorn) and fail to remember his most famous character’s name (hint: it’s “Fred,” not “Freddie”). They also quickly bond to Eric the Cavalier, the MVP of the show who is voiced by Don Most.
