It is our final GOBO of this run, in which we discuss NBC's Quantum Leap and ABC's Alaska Daily. We promise to send you out on much skepticism about the wisdom of building a new Quantum Leap machine, and also a few thoughts on The State of Journalism.
Star Wars TV shows need to learn how to do episodes. So Help Me Todd is, so help us, not our worst-ever watch, even though it's very goofy and stupid. Classic bad one!!
Hello poppets! You're in for a treat with this one, posting up juuuust in time for everyones' commute home from work. We gather together to discuss Margaret's GO and BO: Reboot (GO) and The Vampire Academy (BO) and the vast majority of the episode is us trying in vain to figure out the vampire rules of a poorly written show to which we may or may not have paid much attention. Margaret gets sent to horny jail by minute 18.
Have you heard? People love giant fantasy series! They really do. Or at least, they definitely WATCH giant fantasy series, and whether or not they love them is maybe beside the point? In any event, we're doing a free space Good One / Bad One episode to discuss both House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power, which are your two choices for overstuffed fantasy extravaganzas this fall. No one gets mad about anything.
Ah, the promise of a new TV season. Maybe one of the premieres will be one of your new favorites! Maybe you'll watch something so bad that you can make yourself mad years later just by thinking about it. The world is alight with possibilities!
We're back for a FIVE-episode fall engagement! This week we'll announce our picks, and next week we're going to do an obligatory Oops! All Fantasy episode about the House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings shows.
This is, fundamentally, an episode about life's most existential questions. Some of those questions are fairly simple: what is good TV? How many shows about the same true crime murder is too many shows?
Some of those questions are much more complicated, like "if a time traveler poops in the woods and Steven Moffat is the showrunner and he changes the rules of how the story works so that detached parts of the time traveler's body follow him around through time and space ... what are the implications for Thanksgiving?"
This week, Margaret reopens her Queer TV Quorner to discuss OUR FLAG MEANS DEATH and then inflicts THE COURTSHIP upon Andrew and Kathryn. Its vastly superior predecessor Regency House Party is also discussed.
Did you miss us? Whether you did or not, we’re back again with our spring 2022 edition of Good One/Bad One, along with some notes about what we’ve been watching while we’ve been gone.
