another hit

This is a great podcast where the guys choose a random episode of a random show and review it with hilarious results.

If you enjoyed their amazing 20goto10 podcast review of Halt and Catch Fire, you're bound to enjoy this.

A gem

The premise for this podcast is absolutely unique. There is nothing like it that I can remember ever listening to. Their approach to TV, to dive into a single episode and judge the entire series by it, leads to fascinating conclusions. It was as fun when I knew nothing about the show, but when I was familiar with the show it was even more entertaining to hear the take of highly articulate, and artistically literate new viewers expound on it.

However, the true gold of the podcast is the personality and chemistry of the two hosts, Isaac and Alex. Their preparation, their charisma, and the energy they bring to the show is wonderful. It has a distinct warmth to it, but also an honesty, it is an example of how differing opinions can coexist and compete without abusing or destroying each other. They try to be fair to these shows, even in the midst of decrying their flaws.

Let me not forget to mention the cultural angle here as well. They go across the world to find shows to watch, but they also go back in time. These are truly some of the most fascinating conversations on the show, as they try to compare the "norms" of the culture, say, 40 years ago, versus the late 2010s when this podcast was recorded. It is a journey through time and space.

I realize that as I write this, life has happened and the hosts have apparently moved on to new adventures. But I would still highly, highly recommend this show to anyone who is interested in television as an art form. The conversations they had are IMHO timeless.
