    #214 The Patient, Three Pines, The Flatshare, and Slow Horses. With guests Gary Oldman & Saskia Reeves

    #214 The Patient, Three Pines, The Flatshare, and Slow Horses. With guests Gary Oldman & Saskia Reeves

    You've got to give Apple's Slow Horses one thing, it's anything but slow. The brilliant espionage drama returns for its second season in one year this week and we have stars Gary Oldman and Saskia Reeves on hand to talk all about it.

    Elsewhere, we're undertaking some unconventional therapy with Steve Carrel in The Patient, experiencing some even more unconventional living arrangements with Jessica Brown Findlay in The Flatshare, and solving snowy crimes in Canada with Alfred Molina in Three Pines. All that and Beth's toothbrush issue is vindicated, we take a detour on accents and there's even more Andor appreciation (sorry).

    #213 Echo 3, Wednesday, and Ghosts (US). With guest Luke Evans

    #213 Echo 3, Wednesday, and Ghosts (US). With guest Luke Evans

    Luke Evans is with us on the show this week, talking Echo 3, Apple's new geo-political thriller set in the jungles of Colombia (there may be a little Strictly chat surreptitiously slipped in there by Kay as well). Elsewhere, we're heading back to school with the best member of the Addams Family in Netflix's Wednesday, and taking a look at what our cousins across the pond have done to beloved sitcom Ghosts. Plus, in a ludicrously extended postbag sequence, James stages a spirited defence of TV bellends and we find out all about Beth's weird vicarious toothbrushing phobia.

    #212 Tulsa King, Tell Me Lies, and 1889. With guest Sylvester Stallone

    #212 Tulsa King, Tell Me Lies, and 1889. With guest Sylvester Stallone

    Who do we have on this week's show? It's only Sylvester Stallone, who finally, after all these years, makes his scripted TV debut with Tulsa King on Paramount+. But that's not all because we also take a trip on Netflix's spooky ghost ship in polyglot creep show 1899 on Netflix, and discover that the only thing more horrifying than ghouls and ghosts is college-age men in Tell Me Lies on Disney+. All that and yet more cancellations of shows (some with fairies) as the streamers start swinging the axe with wild abandon.

    #211 The English, Mammals, and The Crown. With guests Emily Blunt, Chaske Spencer and Hugo Blick

    #211 The English, Mammals, and The Crown. With guests Emily Blunt, Chaske Spencer and Hugo Blick

    Emily Blunt, Chaske Spencer and The English creator Hugo Blick join us on this week's show to talk about their rip-roaring rampage of revenge through the Old West. Plus we unpick some marital strife with James Corden in Mammals on Prime and head off to Balmoral for the long-awaited (and Judi Dench-baiting) fifth season of The Crown on Netflix. Plus, James tries to come to terms with a week which not only saw drama come to his beloved Witcher, but also the demise of Fate: The Winx Saga. It's been a lot!

    #210 The White Lotus, Reboot, and Dangerous Liaison

    #210 The White Lotus, Reboot, and Dangerous Liaison

    We're back on holiday at The White Lotus for season 2 of the Mike White's excellent comedy-drama. Plus we're revisiting a bit of saucy 19th century literature in Dangerous Liaisons on Lionsgate+, and getting meta about reboots with, well, Reboot on Disney+. Plus, no halloween episode would be complete without a little haunted house chat (aka what James did on his recent holiday — not to a White Lotus), plus there are some scintillating updates about Beth's recent eye test and the state of Boyd's boiler. Never let it be said that we don't bring you the most *essential* content.

    #209 The Devil's Hour, SAS: Rogue Heroes, and The Bastard Son And The Devil Himself. With guest Nadia Parkes

    #209 The Devil's Hour, SAS: Rogue Heroes, and The Bastard Son And The Devil Himself. With guest Nadia Parkes

    The excellently titled witch drama The Bastard Son And The Devil Himself is on our watch list this week and star Nadia Parkes joins us to talk all things witchy, as well as turning rats into soup (sort of). Plus we catch up with See creator Steven Knight's latest show, SAS: Rogue Heroes, and discover that what goes bump in the night is actually Peter Capaldi in The Devil's Hour. All that and the usual generous helping of TV ramblings as we catch up with all the latest episodes.

Great listen

Love listening to the pod crew discussing/arguing with each other. I’ve learned about a lot of new things of interest to me!

Just one flaw

I love that this podcast gives a balance of US and UK television shows. James and Beth are great. The one weakness is Boyd. The man cannot speak in sentences. Every four words he changes his mind about what to say and that can continue for minutes of rambling.

James stan!
