||Podcast 193: Clean up in the Hallway||Oh gosh, I don't know how we all didn't barf a little bit in our mouths watching Emilio get cleaned up. And we watched Walter become an intentional killer for the first time. If only he could just stop here. This tv podcast covers episodes 3 and 4 of Bre||2/2/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 192: Emillio Stew||We begin our study of the AMC classic tv show, Breaking Bad. My new roommate Justin joined us for his first go round on a podcast. He did a great job. I am so excited to be able to cover a series of television that is so well written, acted, and produced||11/24/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast Movie Special: Stargate||Wow, okay, we really have fallen out of the habit of this podcast thing. Sorry everyone. But the good news is that we have finally published our movie podcast on Stargate the movie. Joey and I each brought a different spin to things, as usual. But if was||10/15/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 191: His Final Vow||Trekwest5 will be tackling the recent BBC Sherlock Holmesseries for their television podcast. This weeks installment is the second episode of the third season: His Final Vow. Albeit 2 weeks late in posting it. :/ Various topics discussed in this podcast||7/21/2014||Free||View In iTunes|

This weeks installment is the first episode of the third season: The Empty Hearse. Apologies to everyone for the echo-y audio. Various topics discussed in this||5/19/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 188: BSG Season 4 and Series Wrapup||BSG has finally come to an end. And it only took us almost 2 years. It was a ton of fun to both put Joey through that torture but also rewatch the reboot. Ron Moore, you did a fantastic job of reimagining this series.

||Podcast 187: All Of This Has Happened Before...||This week we finally put an end to Joey's misery about the story of BSG. And yes, it is better than Lost. I think every tv finale is going to be compared to Lost for quite a while, because of how terrible it was. BSG had a comparatively very good finale w||3/10/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 186: You Haven't Changed Gaius, I Have||This is late in getting posted by a week from when we recorded it due to unforeseen illness. And this was our first week back after probably a month off. So we had a lot to talk about. BSG is almost over. Can't wait to see how Joey reacts to the finish.||3/3/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast Movie Special: Groundhog Day||We cover Groundhog Day for our podcast movie special this week. What a great film by Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, and Chris Elliot. Not only is this a hilarious film but it has a really great message at the end. Hopefully||2/4/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 185: Sheep Have A New Shepherd||Yep, it turns out that Ellen is still a terrible person. But we learn a ton of info about this series, unlike other TV shows (specifically Lost). Fantastic stuff! Also tons of lists of various things from the listners. This tv podcast covers episodes 15||1/20/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 184: They're Gonna Kill Us||A reckoning was predicted, and what a reckoning that Gaeta and Zarek get for their actions. Farewell dear Gaeta. It was really sad to see your decline. Even if it is getting to the end of the series, it is a gutsy move to kill off two of the main charact||1/13/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 183: I See It||A return to the podcast after our holiday break. We had to change plans of recording venue since Joey forgot to bring up the normal recording laptop and so we made a trip back to the office. Thankfully Joey and I had talked them in to buying all the equi||1/10/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 182: We Do Our Jobs||Fun discussion this week. Special appearance by My Friend Jon Madsen, albeit faintly as he was shouting from the other room. Joey only gives his wife one hug a year, on Hug Day. How weird is that? This tv podcast covers episodes 9 and 10 of Battlestar Ga||12/16/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 181: Is Your Word Good?||Plenty of fun and games through this podcast. I think we are both enjoying how things are shaking out with the series, but on top of that we had a really good episode (Guess What's Coming To Dinner) that fostered some good discussion.

||Podcast 180: I'm Glad It's You||We managed to sneak in a podcast right before Thanksgiving. And we had a lot of fun talking about the types of foods we eat. Plus we talked about BSG. I felt we had some really good episodes this week and Joey was still just confused about Starbuck. Don'||11/25/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 179: One Of The Benefits Of Being A Network Administrator||We got this episode out of order from when it aired but it's still ok where it is at. Loads of fun talking about a recent role playing group and a discussion about sports we like to play. Plus a brief return of Ambassador Brainy Smurf with a mini-Nook of||11/18/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 178: Step Forward, Make A Stand||My Friend Jon Madsen was kind enough to join us for the intro of the podcast. We had a fun conversation about Mutants and the new movie Enders Game.

||Podcast 177: Did You Mean It?||It didn't take long for Joey to want to pull his hair out again. And he is second guessing things. Mission Accomplished!

||Podcast 176: Your Name Will Live On Forever||Oh what a good time we had recording this week! Joey had no idea what was coming.

||Podcast 175: Did He Ask About Me?||Pretty low key podcast this week. Probably the weirdest thing is that I admitted to liking Maelstrom, which is a Starbuck episode. Makes sense that I would like the episode that she dies in. Also, I coined the term: Paper Licker. This tv podcast covers e||9/23/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Podcast 174: Keep Your Dignity||Lots of fun stories at the beginning from our time off. And we had a great conversation prompted by the episode Dirty hands. Frankly one of our best in a while.

||Podcast 173: It's Time To Learn The Truth||We came back strong from our latest break. I think we have had more fun in the first hour of recording than we have had in a while. Joining us was the Intern Aaron, who probably deserves some credit for that. But it's unlikely we will give it to him. Oh||8/26/2013||Free||View In iTunes|

brillianter than you might think
these guys not only get really nerdy, but despite that, they're able to be really funny too. throw a lot of opinion and philosphy on top of that and it's not just a couple of geeks gushing. it's a stimulating debate -- even if it is "just about tv."
TV Recap Show for New & Old Fans
A perfect balance of heart and criticism as two friends joyfully review some of the greatest TV shows of all time. Great humor and love for their fans as they go out if their way to make a great experience for all. Be sure to listen to the Babylon 5 section, it is their greatest podcasts. "ding!"
This is one of the few scifi related podcasts that actually encourage listener contributions, these dudes will not only respectfully read your emails on the air, but they will also carefully craft your own personalized handle. so eschew this podcast if you are not into exploration and cultivation of meaning as illuminated through both the nitty-gritty and the sweeping overtone details that shine through a wide range of genre and/or socio polital television programing.
