I really wanted to enjoy this...

…as I'm in search of another general TV podcast to listen to, but so far I'm finding it difficult. Perhaps I've just struck a bad run of episodes, but I'm annoyed by the simultaneous negative comments about and seeming lack of acquaintance with the state of TV criticism. Granted I don't follow all TV criticism, but when Joel goes on and on about how critics don't even watch the majority of shows but just watch and talk about the same critical darlings, that doesn't represent my experience following critics like Sepinwall and Fienberg who between them seem to watch or at least check in on a wide variety of TV. (Of course critically acclaimed shows get more frequent coverage and no critic can watch everything.) I found this particularly annoying because in the episodes I've listened to it seems to be Joel who is constantly unable to talk about shows because he doesn't watch them, to the point that I start to wonder what shows he does follow (presumably a TV podcaster should watch a fair number, especially if he complains that other critics don't).

I also thought their complaints that TV critics are uneducated about the history of TV ignored the work of sites like the AVClub that do many articles on older shows and episodes (and Todd VanDerWerff, who seems to have watched and have informed opinions on all TV ever). And the dozen or so episodes I've listened to don't demonstrate any notable knowledge of TV history on Joel and Jason's part (although Joel seems quite attached to TV Squad history and mentions it frequently).

Joel also tends to repeat his opinion over and over again with little variation, in blustery argumentative tones, which is dull and also makes me want to argue back.

Enjoyable and informative

The hosts are at ease and up-to-date. They share my interest in both the business of TV and its content. So, for me, this podcast is a winner.
