We watch so you don’t have to! A podcast in which we watch TV and then offer our judgments. From the people who bring you The Incomparable.
Time Loops and Roots (Farscape S1E5-6)
Next up in our Farscape rewatch — “Back and Back and Back to the Future”. Surprisingly not all three movies about a kid and his time travelling DeLorean. More like Groundhog Day, where Crichton relives the same day over and over until he gets it right and saves Moya and her crew. We conclude with “Thank God It’s Friday, Again”. Surprisingly not another Groundhog Day episode given the title. Who’s forcing an entire population to farm Tannot root for them? And what’s someone got to do to have a day off? And which “bug in the navel” idea came first...
Space Roach Motel (Farscape S1E3-4)
We continue our rewatch of Farscape season one. Up first, “Exodus from Genesis”, where the crew must deal with two invaders, the potentially dangerous Drak and the definitely dangerous Peacekeeper Commandos. Can they get both groups off Moya before Aeryn succumbs to Sebacean Heat Delirium? Then we review “Throne for a Loss”, Farscape’s “very special episode”. The crew must deal with kidnapping, drug addiction and its after effects. Remember kids, just say “no” to space drug injecting gauntlets!...
TeeVee Sub-Show Update
We’ve moved many of the shows that used to live in the TeeVee feed into their own feeds and removed them from the TeeVee feed. If you use the main TeeVee feed to listen to shows about Westworld, Doctor Who, Ted Lasso, The Mandalorian, Star Trek Discovery, Arrow, and WandaVision, those shows aren’t in the TeeVee feed anymore. They still exist! You just need to subscribe to them directly. If you’re already subscribed to a specific sub-show feed, like Doctor Who Flashcast or Football is Life, those will redirect automatically and you don’t need to do anything. But all of...
Muppets in Spaaaace! (Farscape S1E1-2)
Welcome to a new TeeVee podcast covering the 1999-2004 series Farscape. In this inaugural episode, sci-fi fans Eric and Jason discuss the first two episodes. Eric revisits his love for the series while Jason experiences it for the first time. It’s got everything! Action! Comedy! Space! Muppets in space!...

For All Mankind S2E10 Review: "The Gray"
So it all comes down to this. We review the season finale of “For All Mankind,” which puts the fate of the world in the crucible and makes us ponder the power of individual decisions when great systems seem intent on destroying one another. In addition to the dramatic life-and-death decisions, the plants at the bar are dead, Kelly has finished her essay, and we’re given a tantalizing look at what the 1990s might bring. Onward to season three!...
By fans for fans
Usually fascinating and insightful discussion on a whole variety of genre tv shows. The best quality of the podcast is the changing teams of presenters for different shows. Their genuine enthusiasm and appreciation for the shows they discuss is contagious and enhances the viewing experience.
Ruined by annoying presenter
Would be good podcast, however Lisa Schmeiser needs to tone it down. She constantly takes over the other presenters, laughs and laughs and, yes, laughs way too much. Seems to say sure/umhum every 3 seconds and just seems to want to take over all the time. Me me me. It’s not about you, it’s about the content
