To X-finity and Beyond!
What makes this podcast different than all of the other similarly themed podcasts? It could purely be a matter of taste, but I feel that Grant, Randy and Greg have a terrific synergy as hosts that makes them incredibly engaging. Their distinct quirks and interests help keep things fresh whether they are covering the ratings juggernauts or the indie darlings. Whether it’s Grant’s hearty defense of all things Lost, Randy’s passionate support for The Flash or Greg’s soft spoken praise for Mad Men, you always feel like there are distinct opinions being made rather than a bunch of people blandly agreeing with each other like so many podcasts do.
Even when I’ve found myself wholly disagreeing with some of their views (and unfortunately it’s usually with Randy but Grant’s not exempt either), I find that I can always see where they are coming from and have nothing but respect for why they feel one way or another. I’ve been with them since their change-up in format a while back and I hope to stick around even longer. You would be happy to add these guys to regular podcast rotation if you haven’t already.
P.S. You will obsessively watching tv shows to find scenes of people drinking milk after hearing about the “milk conspiracy” on The Strain review, so you’re welcome!
A podcast that keeps the voices in your head at bay.
Forewarning: I tried looking up google translate on my iMac G3, but I could only gain access to this website called Error 501. Luckily, a Peruvian woman that lives in a McDonald’s ball pit down the street from an apartment that I live in illicitly (the tenant has deaf-blindness) was available to translate my review.
Do you wish the volleyball scene from Top Gun filled the entire film’s running time? Have you found it difficult to drown out the screams..I mean…sounds of creaking pipes emanating from your floorboards? Then, TV Dudes is right for you. Greg (The Shadowed One), Randy (Amber Alert Heisenberg), and Grant (Elijah Woodworker) provide not only the right dose of homoeroticism, but also enough material to make several deposits at the Spank Bank. Disclaimer: This is not a podcast about guys with tuberculosis (TB). I misread the title of the podcast, so why can’t you.
4 stars (because no one needs a bloated ego)
These guys are great
Great chemistry, great weekly coverage, funny and informative. Give them a listen!
