It’s amazing how, during a summer when “nothing” is going on, we’re doing our longest podcasts ever. This one clocks in just short of an appalling two hours. But what we talk about is worth it:
- We start by talking about the disappointing season finale of The Killing, where we finally find out who killed Rosie Larsen,
- We then talk about whether the show will get a third season and what that might look like,
- Would The Killing have made a better miniseries than regular series? We think so and talk about it,
- Then we move to the season finale of Girls, a show we both hated at first and came to enjoy by the end of the season,
- Have there been any shows like that, where we hated them at the start but loved them within a season or two? We give our choices,
- Oh, and we both discuss why we think this show got such a bad backlash, and why critics need to be careful when saying Girls had one of the best first seasons ever,
- Then we discuss how well Bunheads followed up it’s big twist in its pilot
- We then talk about the new version of Dallas, and how much Jason surprisingly enjoyed it — especially J.R. and Bobby
- Finally, we talk about why HBO insists on keeping HBO GO for cable subscribers only, and why cable cutters are a) small in number… for now, b) annoying, and c) not realizing why some people stay “slaves” to cable and satellite (like Jason and Joel).
