    Netflix’s ‘The Circle’ and ‘Love Is Blind:’ Defining the Value of Garbage TV

    Netflix’s ‘The Circle’ and ‘Love Is Blind:’ Defining the Value of Garbage TV

    On this week’s podcast, Ben T. Travers grills his co-hosts, Leo and Libby, about their viewing choices, specifically why they each chose to watch several hours of “Love Is Blind” and “The Circle,” Netflix’s first forays into the trashier corners of reality television, when there’s so much prestige TV out there. Additionally, Ben walks us through his “Hunters” review and the group discusses their excitement for future pod favorite, “Run.”

    The Oscars: The Good ('Parasite'), The Bad (Eminem), and The Quibi (Self-Explanatory)

    The Oscars: The Good ('Parasite'), The Bad (Eminem), and The Quibi (Self-Explanatory)

    On this week's episode, Leo, Libby, and Ben bask in the glow of "Parasite" and Director Bong's impressive night, but can't help but wonder if the historic victory was tarnished by an incredibly bloated and at times confusing Oscars telecast. With ratings down from last year's host-less enterprise (in the wake of Kevin Hart debacle), the Academy is sorely in need of suggestions to help bring relevancy (or at the very least streamlining) back into the program, especially when you consider all the alternatives viewers have at their disposal across both the television landscape and the various streaming platforms. Additionally, Ben and Libby argue about the success of Quibi's first foray into the commercial space, and Libby defends CBS' decision to revive CSI as an event-series.

    On this week's podcast, Ben, Libby, and Leo sit down with Raphael Bob-Waksberg, creator of 'BoJack Horseman,' in the wake of the show's final episodes becoming available for fans over the weekend. Topics covered over the course of the interview include characters returning for the last season, mental health, the state of the anithero, and what he learned from his old sketch troupe, Olde English. Additionally, the group chats about Super Bowl ratings and the WGA awards, which saw some podcast favorites win.

    On this week's episode, Ben, Libby, and Leo talk about Sundance (where Leo was in attendance heading up IndieWire's Sundance Studio, where 87 interviews were recorded over the course of four days) and what potential value it can bring to projects included in its Indie Episodic program. Additionally, Libby discusses her trip to the DGAs, Ben delves into what this week's Nic Pizzolatto/HBO split means for the future of 'True Detective,' and everyone makes their Super Bowl picks.

    Winter TCAs (Part 2): Apple TV+, You're Doing It Wrong

    On this week's episode of Millions of Screens, Ben, Libby, and Leo talk about the second half of the Television Critics Association's Press Tour, where Ben and Libby have spent what likely seems like the last month, focusing on Apple TV+'s inaugural session and HBO Max's somewhat confusing presentation on what exactly will be included when the streamer launches. Additional topics on this week's episode include which shows are currently in the Emmy driver's seat after reviewing what the guilds have chosen to celebrate, with Libby reporting back from her time at the ACE Eddies, the PGA Awards, and the SAG Awards. Also, Ben's befuddlement returns, as he was able to sit down with showrunner Richard Price and ask why and how anyone would turn Stephen King's 'The Outsider' into a show.
