On this week's episode, we introduce a new segment (name TBD) where we tell you how to get the most out of one month with any minor league streaming service. In honor of Ted Lasso's season 2 premiere last Friday (a glorious event to which we devote some time and attention), we've focus our first session on Apple TV+. Come for the earnest advice, but stay for the absolutely harrowing fuck-marry-kill the discussion occasions.
On this week's episode we begin our TV Book Club on Netflix's Feel Good, a show where extremely charming queer people make exceptionally poor decisions, but first: we answer some questions from our Tumblr ask box. Margaret goes long on the subject of library school, we all discuss the scam of terminal master degree programs (recently documented more thoroughly by Anne Helen Petersen), and then-- the true highlight-- we each share an embarrassing story we've not previously told on the podcast.
RIP to The Bold Gripe, a segment we loved briefly and too well. You'll never guess what those goofy media types are up to in the finale! After we fully dunk on that whole situation we turn to the new HBO series The White Lotus, a show about rich people at a fancy resort but most importantly: a show with Jennifer Coolidge in it.
On this week's episode of Appointment TB, we present unto you: CHAOS. Our exceptionally loose agenda is Andrew discusses Patreon Supporter Gerald's $7 pick, the late and sometimes lamented GCB and Margaret invites viewers to return to her Queer TV Qorner by mentioning some exclusively gay content in Marvel's Loki and finding a very particular queer framing for HBOMax's Starstruck. But in actual fact, you'll find our discussion a lot weirder and more wide-ranging than this brief summary can communicate, including the explicit nonsense that NPR specifically paid someone to remove from Margaret's discussion of Loki last week.
You are *not* going to believe what happened on The Bold Type. It's the kind of thing you can see coming in retrospect, and yet it is so fully implausible that our minds are truly blown by it. Then we chat about Everything's Gonna Be Okay, a show we continue to love so, so much.
