Customer Reviews

This is the TV podcast you've been looking for...

The only TV podcast on my subscription list. Been a regular reader of Tim Goodman since his SF Chronicle days (he's now at Hollywood Reporter). Want a brutally funny of a comedy that's not funny? Here you go, and savor the deserved snark. Goodman also has steered us to several superb shows that never would have been been on our radar (we are eternally for 'The In-Betweeners.') Jason Snell does a professional job as host, contributing without taking over.

My Friday favorite

The TV Talk Machine is one of my favorite podcast. I look for it every Friday afternoon, and it helps get me through the last part of my day.

Funny and informative. I could listen to another hour each week. Great rundown of shows, and Tim Goodman is frank, honest and cuttingly "kind" with his reviews.

Jason Snell is easily my favorite podcaster. If he's doing a podcast, go ahead and subscribe. It will be well worth it.


Intelligent and fun tv podcast! Hosts insightful and with a great sense of humor.
