Entertaining TV Podcast, but not without some issues

I'm a longtime reader of Sepinwall's television coverage on the print side and in his entertaining, analytical blog. While there are many podcasts solely devoted to specific shows, there are few that cover the medium as a whole, and I was glad to see one of the best critics around start one up. I wish I could be more excited about Sepinwall's choice of partner, however. While I've enjoyed some of Dan Fienberg's output (his countdown of the 30 best shows of the decade is a well-written, must-read for TV fans), his podcast presence leaves a lot to be desired. He comes across as insufferably smug and aggressively enamored with his own "sense of humor," and it frequently drags an otherwise enjoyable podcast down a few notches for me. (I really wish Sepinwall had teamed with a more engaging and insightful fellow critic, like Mo Ryan, Matt Roush or James Poniewozik). That said, if you're looking for a good discussion of the week's TV events, the podcast does move along swiftly and cover a nice variety of shows in a breezy and informative fashion.

Sepinwall is fine, the other guys a pretentious fool

I heard heard Alan Sepinwall on Bill Simmons' BS Report podcast and liked him. Alan plugged his brand new podcast on there and I fanillay took the plunge. I don't know who his partner is and to be frank, I don't even want to know anymore. Listening to their Comic-Con podcasts, I came away with two thoughts - 1) The other guy has a vendetta on Michael Cera so bad that Cera HAD to have stole money from him 2) Sepinwall has to drop his partner and go solo, because his partner is a idiot.

With Firewall & Iceberg, Global Warming Is Nigh

It's amazing that for people that don't know how to do a podcast, that in less than 6 episodes they have created the best TV-related podcast on the internet, or anywhere for that matter. Both Sepinwall and Feinberg are not only incredibly knowledgeable & informative in their opinions, but they're hilarious. They're a duo more in line with Baldwin & Martin than Abbott & Costello, but Costello never tried to do bad impressions or spin out obscure 80s references between his critique.

As for negatives, there are none. Sure, they may have their technical issues on occasion, but that's hardly a turn-off when the content is this good. The podcast is must-listen for TV-watchers, and let's face it, they don't have much competition. But even if they did, they wouldn't have anything on Firewall & Iceberg.

Ahh, sigh.
