    The one with The Mandalorian s2 | Saved By The Bell 2020 | Aunty Donna's Big Ol' House of Fun | Perry Mason

    This week on the podcast Dan is joined by returning guest Blake Howard (One Heat Minute and the All The President's Minutes podcast). The two of them take a deep dive into what's going on with The Mandalorian this season with a very specific focus on the recent episode 'The Jedi' which saw the live-action introduction of fan-favourite animated character Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson).

    Dan then goes on to discuss the new Saved By The Bell reboot/follow-up series. Does it live up to the hype?

    Blake talks up the new Aussie sketch comedy show Aunty Donna's Big Ol' House of Fun. And then swings back to discuss a show we talked about earlier this year: HBO's Perry Mason.

    The one with Feels Good Man, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and Host

    The one with Feels Good Man, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, and Host

    Dan and Chris are back for another Always Be Watching podcast. What treasures have they unearthed this week?

    Dan celebrates the icon of white supremacy Pepe with the doco Feels Good Man. (This probably should have been reworded differently).

    Chris celebrates an icon of capitalism and corporate propaganda with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, which takes a deep dive into the making of the smash hit Disney+ series.

    Dan wraps things up with Host - a genuinely scary film currently streaming on horror streamer Shudder.

    It's a good one this week folks. Join us... won't you?

    The one with I'm Thinking of Ending Things | Close Enough | The Social Dilemma

    Dan and Chris this week are joined by Mark Humphries. You probably know him best as the host of the beloved, but cancelled too-soon Ten game show Pointless. Or maybe you know him from his weekly satirical sketches on the ABCs flagship current affairs show 730. We know him as a guy who really loves talking about TV.

    This week we discuss new movie I'm Thinking of Ending Things, documentary The Social Dilemma, and the animated comedy Close Enough. All are streaming on Netflix.

Excellent

Best easy listening playlist ever. This is the Margaret and David of the current age only much more funny than they ever were. Great content and banter. I’m giving it five stars.

INSIGHT, HUMOUR, NEWS FIRST...

Great coverage of the crowded film/television landscape. Required listening if you want to be aware of the best, latest content. Great production values, too. Quality listening.

Some great suggestions

Been a fan of Dan since his Televised Revolution days and love the suggestions for shows to watch. BBC drama series Years and Years, a suggestion of Dan’s, was my favourite new program this year. Thank you!
