This week on the podcast, we’re back to more balanced split of television, between comedy, genre, and drama. First we break down the week in comedy, focusing on Bob’s Burgers and Veep, then genre, focusing on Orphan Black and Doctor Who, then reality, and finally drama, particularly Mad Men and The Americans. Then we spotlight the season finale of The Good Wife, “What’s in the Box?”, before welcoming SOS contributor Kate Rennebohm to the DVD Shelf to take a look at the black sheep of the Joss Whedon TV family, Dollhouse.
It was a lighter week of television, with many shows taking a break before the end-of-season push, but there’s still plenty to talk about on the podcast. After looking at the rather meager week in comedy, we talk genre, then reality, and finally drama, including the finale of Southland and premiere of Rectify. Then Ryan McGee from The A.V. Club, Boobtubedude.com, and Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan (among other things) joins us at the DVD Shelf to break down the under-appreciated and utterly amazing Spartacus.
It’s a very full week of television this time on the podcast with shows from every genre showing up in a big way. We go through the week’s comedy, genre, reality, and finally drama TV before spotlighting (yes, the spotlight is back!) Southland’s intense, gripping episode, “Chaos”. Then we welcome Steve Prokopy, Capone from AICN, back to the DVD Shelf for his second installment of Horror Picks; this time, we take a look at two very memorable Stephen King miniseries, IT and Storm of the Century.
We have more television to talk about this week on the podcast, but fewer standout episodes, unfortunately. First we take a look at the genre fare from the past week, then rundown the comedies, and finally dive into the dramas. Then we welcome on Dan Forcella from TV Fanatic to help us take a look at the season finale of Justified, “Ghosts”, as well as season four as a whole.
It’s another fantastic week of television, with the dramas in particular bringing their A game and giving us plenty to talk about on the podcast. First we break down the comedies, then the genre fare, then the reality, and finally the dramas. Then we head over to the DVD Shelf to welcome back David Bax from Battleship Pretension to help us take a look at one of the great recent spinoffs and genre series in general, Angel.
