Episode 50: Supersized Fall TV Review Edition

To help mark the first year of the podcast and the milestone that is Episode 50 - Derek decided to... go visit friends in Jersey?

What the H, Derek?

Whatever. We made due. Deeps and I blazed through almost an entire fall TV season in one hour. New shows and returning favorites are included. Sorry it's so long (over an hour).

That's what she said!

Anyway, we covered shows that aired this week thematically. So, in rough order, we discussed the following shows:

The Soaps
Cane, Dirty Sexy Money, and Big Shots

The Comedies
How I Met Your Mother, Ugly Betty, My Name Is Earl, and The Office

Stuff with the Devil

Reaper

Doctor Shows
Private Practice, House, and Grey's Anatomy

Genre Shows
Moonlight, Heroes, and Torchwood

We're exhausted.

More! More! More! Bonus Episode for the end of summer

We focused on talking about the new Fall TV season, but we're still enjoying the last bits of summer. So we recorded a bonus podcast to cover a lot of the shows that were wrapping up as we slide into fall.

I forget to introduce the fellas until about half way through. You can see how weird cold medicine makes me. On the bright side, I'm feeling much better now.

This week we wax nostalgic about ice cream, fireflies and TV like: Flash Gordon, Painkiller Jane, Doctor Who, Burn Notice, Torchwood, Eureka and Saving Grace.

Plus Derek makes me laugh so hard I cough. Gross!

By Hook or By Crook

For those who care, episode 49 of The Big Red Podcast is on deck for this weekend. Deeps, Derek and I have been racing to watch as much new stuff as possible so that we might focus on returning shows for episode 50. See how nicely that works out?

And I think we might have a review of an Errol Morris film. I can't say for certain because certain members of the household are asleep and can't tell me if they are ready to discuss the film.

Plus I found the pilot for Big Bang Theory on iTunes. And we watched Chuck, Life and Journeyman on NBC's On Demand sneak peek. I'm sure there is something else....

We're going long this week, dear listeners. That's what she said.

We can rebuild her....

Episode 47: The Super Brit Edition

This week we end up talking about a lot of stuff from across the pond like Doctor Who and Death At A Funeral. Plus we talk about the big finale for Flight of the Conchords and ponder HBO's next move with Tell Me You Love Me.

Deeps was brave enough to watch the voyeuristic drama. I am less brave. I can't face the possibility of a naked David Selby. As a kid I loved to hate him on Falcon Crest!

Episode 46: Welcome Freshmen!

We're winding down the summer. The surest sign of this fact is the back-to-school onslaught we're experiencing.

Living near some of the finest institutions of higher learning in the country has benefits: awesome used bookstores, cheap eats, famous people drop by to sign books, and a great old movie theater. But the downside is the first month or so when everyone is readjusting to school life or worse, facing it for the first time. I call them Freshmen.

(And this is a sardine can.)

We also talk about the penultimate episode of the first season of Flight of the Conchords. We talk about getting stupid on Eureka, being a big baby on Mad Men, and getting in touch with your inner jerk on Californication. Yes, somebody actually watched a third episode of that show.
