Shenanigans At The Chateau – Episode 74


We certainly hope you’re ready for another fun ride!  We’re not even two full episodes into our 4th season when the train jumps the tracks and remained derailed (in a fun way).  Perhaps it’s the wine?  We’re tasting Riesling tonight, and the two bottles are so good, we end up with a split panel.  Oh yeah, Marina is at it again.  Watch as she completely throws Brian (his recovery is admirable).  We have someone joining us for the first time on this show, and after what he witnessed, we hope he comes back!  The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
