    ‘Ted Lasso’ Ropes Our Hearts Tighter in Season 2

    ‘Ted Lasso’ Ropes Our Hearts Tighter in Season 2

    AppleTV+’s Ted Lasso feels set to dominate this year’s Emmy Awards. It’s no coincidence that AppleTV+ released its second season just before the start of final round Emmy voting. Will that strategy work in the end? How does season two of Ted Lasso stack up against its award-winning freshman outing?

    We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

    Are We Digging ‘Dave’ Season 2?

    Are We Digging ‘Dave’ Season 2?

    The Water Cooler Gang returns to FX’s Dave – one of their favorite shows – to assess its second season.

    FX’s Dave emerged as one of our favorite series of 2020. Starring Lil Dicky (a.k.a. Dave Burd), Dave tells the story of an unlikely rapper using social media to break into the music industry. He’s white. He’s Jewish. He has hypospadias (look it up). The first season became a charming and offbeat look into making it, but how does its recently released second season hold up? We assess Dave season two halfway through its run.

    Plus, we dive into the cancellation of HBO’s Lovecraft Country and potential reasons for it.

    Be sure to check out Awards Daily TV on Friday for Team ADTV’s list of Emmy predictions in the major races! And next week, on Emmy nomination night, Team ADTV will gather together to record reactions.

    We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

    One of Our Favs: If We Had an Emmy Ballot

    One of Our Favs: If We Had an Emmy Ballot

    This is one of our very favorite podcasts, “If We Had an Emmy Ballot,” where the Cooler Gang “votes” for the 2021 Emmys.

    It’s time for our annual “If We Had an Emmy Ballot” podcast! We love this podcast because we are awards nerds who love to pretend we’re members of the Television Academy. Perhaps we’ve lost you by now. If you’re still here, then join us as we reveal who each of us would vote for if we indeed had an Emmy ballot.

    Podcast: Producer Joel Chiodi on How ‘Equal’ Helps Us to Look Forward By Looking Back

    Podcast: Producer Joel Chiodi on How ‘Equal’ Helps Us to Look Forward By Looking Back

    HBO Max’s Equal is a very special documentary series. As we celebrate Pride this month, we are constantly reminded that the pathway to true equality is a neverending road. Marriage Equality was only passed in the last ten years and our transgender family continues to face violence and discrimination. Joel Chiodi was eager to tell a history lesson in a new and exciting way.

    Instead of having a dry, talking heads history lesson about where gay people came from, Chiodi and his team made the decision to cast actors in small recreations of famous queer people. Some people think the gay rights movement only started at Stonewall but that is a great disservice to people like Dale Jennings, Del Martin, and Phyllis Lyon and those icons are played by familiar faces in Cheyenne Jackson, Heather Matarazzo, and Shannon Purser, respectively. The stories of these people are very compelling, and seeing performers you already love helps lure you even more.

    There is some shocking footage still in the series like when you see confusing medical procedures being done or men being dragged out of gay bars simply for being there. “There is an immediacy to it. When you see the footage of people having shock treatments, it’s an emotional moment,” Chiodi said.

    Every year, we have a series or a film to remind us how to be proud to be queer and live our lives in a singular way. But Equal goes one step further. Do not hide your anger or your rage because the brave men and women in the 1950s did not silence themselves.

    Equal is available to stream on HBO Max.

Really enjoy this podcast and the commentary between the hosts. The banter between the three of them provides a refreshingly honest take on peak television.
