It’s Time for a Big Ol’ Holiday TV Smackdown‪!‬ The Monitor

    • TV & Film

Aside from turkey-eating, the biggest Thanksgiving tradition amongst your faithful WIRED Culture crew is sitting in front of the television not watching football. (OK, some of us watch football.) Our other tradition, of course, is fighting about what’s the best thing to watch while staring at that TV.
For some of us, Community is always a crowd-pleaser. Others are Grey’s Anatomy die hards. And some of us just really love Die Hard. No, Die Hard isn’t a TV show. But it often plays on cable, so that counts, right? We also love to watch Friends, Simpsons, and scads of other shows during this time of food comas.
But what’s the best? Well, that’s what your Monitor crew is here to fight out. We’ve got editors and writers Peter Rubin, K.M. McFarland, and Angela Watercutter in the booth and they’re ready to rumble.
A few helpful links for things we talk about in the podcast:
-K.M. McFarland’s piece on the world-building of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
-WIRED’s guide to binge-watching The Simpsons
-WIRED Book Club’s discussion of Bitch Planet
