Fall TV is upon us, and the broadcast networks still exist! I watched two Fox shows and two ABC shows that premiered this week. Here are some thoughts, from favorite to least favorite.
Listen to Episode 21 of The M&M Report here.
This week on The M&M Report, Devin and I looked at the two shows that serve as bookends for Girls on HBO’s Sunday night lineup. True Detective and Looking are both worth your time if you’re looking for relatively new shows to start watching, and we discussed their merits as well some of the criticisms that have been leveled against each.
After that, we went to the movies to discuss Philomena, perhaps the most obscure of this year’s nine nominees for Best Picture at the Oscars. We both liked the film with some reservations, but we enjoyed discussing it nonetheless.
Next week, we’ll be tackling the subject that has had people at AU and around the nation buzzing with enthusiasm: the Netflix drama House of Cards. Special guest Leah Dolittle will join us to discuss what the show does right and wrong, and why it’s become so popular in such a short amount of time. Devin and I will also review the first week of Jimmy Fallon’s stint as host of The Tonight Show.
Until next time…thanks for listening!
