The M&M Report, Episode 15: The Year’s Best Television

Orange is the New Black

Listen to Episode 15 here.

Happy New Year! 2014 promises to be an exciting year, but Devin and I decided to look back before we look ahead. On this week’s episode of The M&M Report, we talked about an amazing year in television. We looked back at six of our favorite shows, debated the merits of binge-watching, discussed the first-world problem of “too much TV” and gave thanks for this TV Golden Age we’re living in.

Keep in mind that we weren’t listing our favorite shows of the year – for instance, I didn’t even talk about Breaking Bad, the show of the year by many standards. Rather, we offered some suggestions of really good shows that we enjoyed and we think you might too.

Tune in to find out which show Devin’s mom abandoned, why Mark likes shows about interesting communities that seem to exist even when the cameras aren’t watching, and what happened to Devin’s plan to binge-watch the entirety of Breaking Bad over winter break.

Devin and I are really exciting to keep the podcast alive in the new year, and we hope you’ll take the journey with us. Thanks for listening!

(In addition to this podcast, you can find my thoughts on the year in television here, here and here.)

Stay tuned for the time breakdown:

Next, Devin and I each chose our favorite movie. Mark went for a breezy 1980s blockbuster, and Devin chose a methodical 1970s thriller. You’ll have to listen to find out what we chose!

Finally, we invited our friend and colleague Chloe Johnson to talk about Arcade Fire and the band’s new album Reflektor, currently available wherever music is sold and streamed.
