    ‘Abbott Elementary’ Season 3 Finale: It Finally Happened!

    Charles Holmes and Logan Murdock go back to school and recap ‘Abbott Elementary’ Season 3. They start by debating whether or not the ABC sitcom should be considered “prestige,” before outlining a broad overview of Season 3 as a whole and its familiar—yet effective—storytelling structure (1:47). Along the way, they discuss the impact of a condensed season and why the love triangle between Janine, Gregory, and Manny suffered because of it (10:05). Later, they break down why the finale was such a satisfying conclusion, MVPs of the season, and potential concerns about Season 4 and beyond (15:53).

    Nora Princiotti and Kate Halliwell put on their best ballgowns and recap the first four episodes of ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3.

Along the way, they discuss how the side plots are much more fleshed out this time around and highlight a few of the fun needle drops (Pitbull?!) so far (17:32). Later, they break down that spicy carriage scene before sharing some predictions and hopes for Part 2 (34:20).

    ‘Baby Reindeer’ Review

    ‘Baby Reindeer’ Review

    Charles Holmes and Jodi Walker debate the merits of Netflix’s newest hit, 'Baby Reindeer,' in which a struggling comedian is made to deal with both a female stalker and his own dark past. They examine just how the show subverted viewer expectations, the way it leaned into (and away from) the true crime angle, and its brave portrayal of trauma.

My fave TV discussion podcast

Way more focused and sophisticated than most TV discussion podcasts which can tend to ramble and enjoy the sound of their own voice. Particularly like Joanna’s analysis!

I’ve loved the Better Call Saul

This podcast is such an enjoyable listen. Check it out. The Better Call Saul discussions between Joanna and Ben were so insightful, warm and fun. And I would love them to do another show together. I was genuinely sad when the series came to an end.

I felt the same about Joanna, Danny and David talking about Westworld. The podcast was such a great hang. So subscribe and check this out. There’s so many different shows covered. It’s worth your time.

Great from Joanna & Sean, but Bill…?

I’ve only been listening to the Prestige for Succession episodes but man, Bill Simmons is such a dolt. He has none of the nuanced analytical perspective of Joanna or Sean, and pipes up crass ideas that are so low brow compared with his much smarter colleagues. And then has the nerve to condescendingly make dull sports references that Joanna “probably won’t get”. He’s a chump, and should pipe down to give Joanna more air time. God knows how she puts up with him.
