If anything in My Brother, My Brother And Me doesn’t quite work, it’s the big “Candlenights” season finale. The episode is based around the brothers celebrating an all-inclusive, nondenominational holiday they made up for the podcast, and most of it involves them running through Huntington as they try to wrangle celebrity guests and decorations for a special live show. That stuff is all fantastic, and it includes some very funny narration from Hamilton ’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, but the live show itself is depicted with a montage of the brothers and their audience laughing at jokes that you can only really hear if you download the actual podcast. It’s a bit disappointing, since Seeso viewers don’t get to enjoy the payoff of the funny setup, but that’s just the reality of this being a half-hour comedy show and not a multi-hour holiday special. Thankfully, the episode is saved by its touching ending, which involves Justin getting teary-eyed about how important his brothers are to him while the other two just laugh—you know, like brothers do.
