It’s another milestone this week at AFT: our first 2-hour podcast! Yes, I know… when will these guys learn to shut up? Fortunately, we have timestamps again this week so you can skip to whatever portion of the podcast suits your fancy. Jason and Joel recorded it while Joel was watching the Giants lose to the Cowboys, so he might be a little distracted. But there was still a lot to talk about:
- We talk about NBC adding in a third audition episode of The Voice next week, pitting the show directly against The X Factor. We wonder if NBC is afraid of Britney, Simon and company or if they think X is vulnerable. We also discuss the early premiere of what looks to be a messy fourth season of Glee, and what the heck NBC is doing with Go On and The New Normal (03:00 – 29:45),
- Then we talked about the Breaking Bad (mid?) season finale, if what happened was completely earned, and why this final season has been an A- one at best (29:45 – 48:00),
- Revolution premiered early online, and Jason likes what he sees, especially Giancarlo Esposito (48:00 – 52:00),
- We tease our fall preview that will air next week (52:00 – 55:00),
- We talk about The Burn with Jeff Ross and Totally Biased with W. Kamu Bell, two shows where stand-up comedians riff on the news (and both are much better than Russell Brand’s mess of a show) (55:00 – 1:10:00),
- We talk about the season premiere of Doctor Who, and how delightfully cheesy and fun the show still is, even to someone like Joel, who hasn’t seen the modern version of the show until now (1:10:00 – 1:27:00),
- Finally, we talk about why episode reviews have gotten completely boring to read, and what should and shouldn’t go into an effective, fun-to-read review (1:27:00 – 2:00:00 … wow, did we really talk about it for that long?).
