We're joined on the bridge this week by ATV Podcast's Andrew Cunningham, to talk about the latest addition to the Star Trek family, Paramount+'s Strange New Worlds: the benefits of procedural narrative, the Shatnerian properties of Anson Mount, and horny Spock. Then we transported ourselves Around The Dial with I Love That For You, Our Flag Means D…
 
Mother's Day 2022 is nearly upon us, and if you haven't made a brunch reservation by this point, you're probably screwed. However, we have made something for you that you can pass on to Mom that's much better than an omelet and a macaroni collage: it's the TV Mom Thunderdome! We have selected 27 TV mothers to face off in a series of three-combatant…
 
The fact-based cop drama We Own This City brings co-creator David Simon back to Baltimore and to HBO; it also brings Santiago Melli-Huber back to the podcast to discuss this take on Baltimore's Gun Trace Task Force scandal. Around The Dial takes us through even more true crime with WeCrashed, Captive Audience, and Gaslit, plus The Baby and RuPaul's…
 
Our longtime Better Call Saul correspondent Will Leitch returns along with BCS to discuss the first episodes of the show's final season. Which moments made us think, "Ah yes, our show is back"? How have we revised our predictions on what happens to Kim Wexler? When and where will we see Walter White and Jesse Pinkman as the story comes to a close? …
 
Sometimes American remakes of British comedies are big hits, like The Office! And sometimes they're not, like Taskmaster. Where does The CW's take on Would I Lie To You? land? Panel show aficionado Dan Cassino returns to discuss it. Around The Dial takes us through Minx, The Ultimatum, Beforeigners, Julia, and Atlanta. Dave S. uses his Extra Credit…
 
Roxana Hadadi is back to talk about the latest minor Marvel superhero, Moon Knight, and whether an inconsistent premiere outweighs the charisma of Oscar Isaac in the lead role. Will TV's usual difficulty portraying gods apply to this series? Should Ethan Hawke's cult-leader subplot have gotten cut entirely? And is Dave a crackpot for thinking it's …
 
Hulu apparently felt that the Michelle Carter "texting suicide" case hadn't been sufficiently covered by a Lifetime movie and a multi-hour documentary, so now its latest scripted true crime series, The Girl From Plainville, is taking its turn; Stephanie Early Green returns to discuss it. Around The Dial takes us through Music Box: Listening To Kenn…
 
Do you know what time it is? It's Game Time -- except THIS time, all our Valued Guests were drawn from among our Patreon supporters, and they're playing in a mini-tournament with your co-hosts as their lifelines. Listen to find out who defeats all their opponents and emerges victorious! Show Topics Game Time: Order Up Game Time: Tube Tunes IX Game …
 
Brittany Luse took a break from co-hosting FCN and HBO Docs Club to talk about FOX's newest silly-competition reality show, Domino Masters -- and we all found lots of reasons you should probably just watch "topples" on YouTube instead, including weak chemistry, weaker jokes, frustrating lack of camera coverage, and drama that doesn't come from the …
 
With Sarah unexpectedly out for the week, it's a slimmed-down installment of the podcast (no Canon or Game Time) -- but fortunately Eve Batey is here to bring her expertise in both San Francisco and true crime to join our discussion on The Dropout! Around The Dial takes us through Our Flag Means Death, The Courtship, the Late Night With Seth Meyers…
 
After almost 12 years, the original Law & Order has been revived at NBC for its 21st season, and superfan Mark Blankenship has returned to The Blankenship Chair to talk about it! Around The Dial takes us through Super Pumped, Love Is Blind, Reacher, Bug Out, and Worst Roommate Ever. Ilan cashes in an Extra Credit to get us to propose our finales fo…
 
Two Cents Plus Tax co-host Krystal Farmer came by to talk about The Endgame, an overstuffed and underwhelming procedural that tries to do too much and is assembled from the spare parts of too many early-aughts shows. Why do networks still make shows like this? Do we need The Endgame if we still (seriously!) have The Blacklist? And how is Fedorova w…
 
We love it when our listeners submit Canon pitches so much that we're considering not one but THREE in this special episode. Will Karen's pitch on The Odd Couplerack up the requisite odd couple of votes? Will Doug Dale's advocacy for Work Of Art: The Next Great Artist move and challenge us? Will we make holiday dreams come true for Dave in Chicago …
 
With so much TV either taken up by the Olympics or getting out of their way, we took our own stab at counter-programming: for our last episode before Valentine's Day, we're each forcening each other to watch a TV episode with "love" somewhere in its title. Dave assigns Sarah "The Secret War" from Love, Death + Robots; Sarah challenges Tara to take …
 
Waiting for Impact and Truu Stowray host Dave Holmes stopped by for the first time to talk about Pam & Tommy, Hulu's prestige miniseries about Pamela Anderson, Tommy Lee, their whirlwind romance, and the sex tape seen 'round the world. Is the story of Seth Rogen's stiffed (...heh) contractor the real heart of the tale, or is it the Pam/Tommy romanc…
 
Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes has crossed the ponds -- and crossed to a new network -- to launch his new period drama The Gilded Age; Mark Lisanti returns to discuss whether it will please members of the Felloweship of fans. Around The Dial takes us through American Auto, Abbott Elementary, Ozark, Season 2 of Cheer, Peacemaker, 9-1-1: Lone …

Resident Amazing Race expert Jessica returns to the guest chair to talk about the legendary reality show's unique thirty-third season: how it handled an 18-month interruption, whether we expect more from its production than we do from other shows, the true-crime connection that's somehow charming, and whom we expect to win. We went Around The Dial …
 
So...the original plan was to watch the 1979 miniseries Backstairs At The White House -- even though, at nine hours, it's longer than some actual series are these days. Then Dave and Tara got less than half an hour into it and pulled the plug. Dan -- who did watch it -- tells us what we missed, but then we just roll on past that to a trio of Non-Re…
 
From December 25, 2020: We challenged our listeners to get us to 1000 Patreon supporters by December 15, and they went above and beyond. Your reward? This drunk episode. Author, screenwriter, and sake enthusiast Pamela Ribon joins us as we discuss Bridgerton, the first Shonda Rhimes show to hit Netflix. Which of us found its 1813 society romances c…
 
Being The Ricardos, Aaron Sorkin's latest project as a big-screen writer-director is...also very much a small-screen project, so we are claiming it. Look, it's about TV (specifically, the stars and making of I Love Lucy) and it's kind of on TV (members can stream it for free on Amazon Prime Video), so IT COUNTS. Anyway: joining us for the discussio…
 
Novelists and Go Fug Yourself editors Heather and Jessica are back to talk about the Sex & The City...update? reboot? whatever you call it, you can also call it And Just Like That. And you can ALSO call it "tone-deaf," "cringey," and "a clumsy character assassination," as the legendary HBO sit-rom-com returns with a bunch of new characters, and one…
 
HBO's latest British miniseries import is Landscapers, telling the story about Christopher and Susan Edwards and their, er, unorthodox gardening habits; we tell you whether we thought it was, heh, fertile ground for drama. Around The Dial takes us through Annie Live!, Money Heist, Baptiste, and Hawkeye. Elenore pitches the Drunk History episode "Ci…
 
Sarah and Tara are busy eating turkey so Dave assembled a crew of Wheel Of Time experts to try to explain what the hell he just watched. Join Dan Cassino, Sean Pflueger and Jim Durr as they discuss Amazon's adaption of the epic series then stick around for a spicy game time!
