Description

Craig Rowin (Adult Swim's 'Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell,' UCB Theatre) invites comedians over to his apartment to watch any TV show they want. They talk about the show and a bunch of other crap.

Customer Reviews

Fun Show

When the guest doesn't pick a reality show of some kind, and it's just Craig and someone else digesting scripted TV, this show is a great listen.

Entertaining

This is a great idea for a podcast, and Craig and his guests are always very funny. It's smart that Craig lets the conversation meander way off topic, as there's not always enough to say about the TV episode to fill a whole show. As a TV geek, I occasionally find myself wishing Craig were more of a scholar of TV history -- he's not an expert, he's just a guy who really likes watching stuff, and there are times when he gets facts wrong or admits that there are things he just doesn't know and doesn't care to know. But I guess "a TV historian watches TV" would be a completely different podcast than "a funny guy watches TV." As it is, I look forward to each new episode.

A Unique & Fascinating Podcast

Love it! One of my favorite podcasts. Such a great idea! Craig is an excellent host and he interacts very naturally with his guests.

One thing I like is that this isn't just an opportunity to rip on bad TV shows. Craig and co. really take a fair approach to the shows they watch and the allow fascinating and funny conversations to flow naturally from the subject matter.

My only suggestion (and maybe I'm alone in this) is I kind of wish Craig would put a moratorium on watching reality shows. Not that these episodes are bad, but I find the discussions of older scripted shows to be so much more interesting and unique.

There are plenty of places to mock shallow reality stars. It's that Episode is at its best when a guest is confessing a childhood obsession with Thirtysomething, breaking down the comedy mechanics of You Can't Do That on Television or pondering the physics of Quantum Leap.

My sense is that the concept works best when the guest is revisiting and reassessing a favorite show from the past.

Regardless, this is still a five-star podcast!
