“Sparrow-Talk presents:” is the result of a failed attempt to do a podcast about Goodnight Sweetheart. After 8 episodes following Gary Sparrow’s time travelling adultery, these three youngish men now talk about a different TV show every week. There’s little rhyme or reason to what they choose to watch, it’s just stuff they’ve heard of from the 70s onwards.

    19. Sparrow-Talk presents: The Equalizer

    19. Sparrow-Talk presents: The Equalizer

    This one isn't about the Denzel films, it's the TV show starring Ewar Woowar.Every episode of The Equalizer dealt with a different situation that needed equalising. Be it a graphic equalizer or a point scored that brought the two teams up to the same number of points, Robert McCall was there to help.For this final episode, we decided to make Keith sound like he’s sitting in a much bigger room than the other two. Sorry about that.Robert McCall drives a Jaguar XJ8. Ian Pie drives a Saab 900.Why won’t Tom let us make comparisons?Anyone who is anyone was in this gritty television, including some of the cast of West Wing. ‘James Bond’ isn’t a code name.Someone from Lyndhurst has sent Tom a tangential postcard.Apparently, psychics are a real and reliable source of future events. But what do you dip in soup?We’re still living with Tom’s earlier skewed ratings. There is no excuse for getting confused with such a simple scoring system.However, this does give us a chance to find out what we rated highest/lowest through this run of ‘Sparrow Talk presents’. Quiz.Done.Keep in touch with us, twitter.com/sparrowtalkpod, or sparrowtalkpod@gmail.com.

    18. Sparrow-Talk presents: Press Gang

    Children's TV. This is what it has come to.Written by a junior Steven Moffat, Press Gang was about some kids running a newspaper. This was when the print medium was still financially viable.Moffat later went on to write Coupling and Dr Who. Did he peak at Press Gang? You decide.Other future luminaries include Julia Sawalha, Dexter Fletcher, Max-from-EastEnders and Lucy Benjamin.Tom mislays the latest postcard from Lyndhurst, but don't worry, it turns up.Ruddy Dr Who came up for some other reason.He’s not Lobot.How do you get confirmation that someone exists while retaining the ability to save face?Tom is still haunted by his past flamboyant scoring. He’s got nowhere to go.There are suspicions of foul play in the quiz, Tom always does suspiciously well.Keep in touch with us, twitter.com/sparrowtalkpod, or sparrowtalkpod@gmail.com.

    16. Sparrow-Talk presents: Space Precinct

    Orbital!Officers Hughes, Claridge and Chief Inspector Keith reporting for duty.Sorry for Graeme's bad audio quality, his microphone was sub-orbital.Unusually for a Gerry Anderson production, this is a live action series rather than puppet-based. It was about police in space. Space police.In this space episode, we learn a lot about Tom's 'brown captain’. What sort of storage made it so brown?There's a space postcard from Lyndhurst, and a top quality space quiz.Keep in touch with us, twitter.com/sparrowtalkpod, or sparrowtalkpod@gmail.com.

    15. Sparrow-Talk presents: Time After Time

    15. Sparrow-Talk presents: Time After Time

    Time for another stroll through the questionable world of ITV commissioning. In this episode we're enduring a Going Straight knock-off starring British man Brian Conley.As with Ronnie Barker's superior post-prison programme, the star sings the theme tune. So...enjoy that.While Graeme has abandoned his loyalty for his Bobble® bottle, Tom has doubled down and upgraded to a full one litre bottle!Tom gets a postcard from Lyndhurst, either from big Nick himself, or the mayor of Lyndhurst. The signature must be illegible.'Poker’ isn't a verb.Time for a quiz, ha. It's about time etc.Keep in touch with us, twitter.com/sparrowtalkpod, or sparrowtalkpod@gmail.com.
