Great TV and pop culture podcast

I recently started listening to this podcast because they started their podcast by doing a TV Book Club for Terriers! Love to hear discussion and interest for that beloved show. I've continued listening as I love the variety of shows and TV-land topics under discussion and the fun, charming, conversational tone.

The podcast you really should make time for

Praise the Lord for Appointment Television. It’s a podcast all about the TV you should be making time for, and because it’s produced by a trio of hardcore television watchers, that means that it’s a trustworthy source of a variety of recommendations, information about TV you really should know more about, and explanations as to why some shows really are as important for society as their fandoms say they are.

Take the segment “TV vs TV” for example, in which two shows of similar premise, style, and production are put head-to-head on trial to determine which is the better production. In fact, the first episode of Appointment Televisionincluded this segment and put Star Trek: The Next Generation against Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.Now, I would have kept listening simply because Margaret is on this podcast but the fact that Andrew and Katherine were able to succinctly explain the differences between two separate series of a complex universe with a hot-blooded fandom in a way that I, a staunch non-Trekkie, was able to kind of get why any iteration of Star Trek has cultural relevance is what really got me hooked from the get-go.

The other segment I really love is “TV Book Club,” which has broadened my viewing scope because I just don’t want to be left out of anything these guys think is cool to watch. After experiencing Terriers and Black Mirror because of Appointment TV (in retro-listen, as I jumped on the bandwagon after the podcast was already well on its way) I’m now current with the podcast itself as well as with the latest in TV Book Club series, Bunheads.

Check this one out. Trust me, I know things.
