TV Roundtable #0: The Good Place S1 / 2017 Predictions (and Complaints)

The Gang tackles NBC’s wonderful high-concept sitcom and looks ahead to 2017’s delights (and likely horrors).

Published

on

On the first TV Roundtable in our lovely new abides, The Gang (that’s Sean Colletti, Randy Dankievitch, and Simon Howell, for the uninitiated) tackles the wonderfully twisty and philosophical first season of NBC’s high-concept sitcom The Good Place, then take a look back at 2016 and a look ahead to 2017 (the year we’re all excited for!) with a long series of predictions and, of course, complaints. Somewhere in there, we ponder the future of political comedy on TV in the Tr*mp era, the hit-miss ratio of The CW, the forthcoming wave of #WeirdTV, and whether we’ve complained enough about Mr. Robot‘s second season.

Published

Watchmen Podcast Episode 7

“An Almost Religious Awe” is an episode designed to give answers about Angela’s tragic backstory and the nature of Vietnam as the 51st state, but it’s also about the most powerful being in the Watchmen universe, Doctor Manhattan, who has been hiding in plain sight this entire time. With the show’s stakes getting raised ever higher and the doomsday clock ticking closer to midnight, Doctor Manhattan is finally revealed in the most shocking scene yet. As the 7th Kavalry, spearheaded by Senator Joe Keene prepares to launch an attack in hopes to gain the powers of Doctor Manhattan himself, the question on everyone’s mind is how Angela, Jon Osterman and Lady Trieu plan on stopping them. There’s a lot to discuss this week including couches rigged with booby traps, Adrian Veidt’s odd courtroom battle and so much more.

Our Watchmen podcast will see Simon Howell and an assortment of guests tackle the entire series (or at least the first season). In this seventh episode, Simon Howell , Randy Dankievitch and guest Ricky D take a deep dive into “An Almost Religious Awe” and note some of the more astonishing facts of the episode you might have missed.
