Reheated: S01E04 “Billy Joel and the Air Conditioner”

Reheated image 3This Reheated episode covers episode four of HBO’s “The Leftovers” entitled “BJ and the AC”. The viewers of this show, at least those on this podcast, are back in no man’s land. Do we like it? Do we hate it? Personally, I do enjoy it. I feel things kind of building though last week was such a damn good hour of television.

Reheated: S01E03 “6 Pigeons & a Robbery”

Reheated image 3
Above all the good things this episode accomplished none was more impressive than the complete turnaround it performed on Rob. This show went from zero to hero in the eyes of Alesiani. Yes, it was a great episode- not just in comparison to the other two (because there is no comparison), but on its own. In this episode entitled “Two Boats & a Helicopter”- which references a quick story that I really like (and retell and then get offended when David refers to it as “a joke”)- we follow Reverend Matt (Christopher Eccleston) and the show is better off for it. Please rate & review us on iTunes, email us at SRMPodcast@gmail.com and tweet us @srmpodcast.

Apologies to: Whovians, Asians, Laotians, Helicopters, Boats, Unitarian Universalists, Bleach, Pope Francis, David, Midnight Oil, Episcopalians, gamblers, and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Bloody Sunday: The Strain Podcast S01E01

Bloody Sunday Graphic 2This is the first episode of a new podcast dedicated to spending time talking about “The Strain” on FX. The first episode made it clear this would not be a chore. It certainly wouldn’t be as laborious as talking about “The Leftovers” on Reheated, though it’s really fun to talk about how bad that show can be. The Strain’s however was not bad. It was awesome and in this first episode covering, “Night Zero” we talk about how damn good it really was.

Bloody Sunday: The Strain Podcast Coming!

Bloody Sunday Graphic 2In an effort to occupy more of my time hosting free podcasts about TV shows I am adding another one. There’s already Stark Raven Mad, which covers Game of Thrones. Recently I added Reheated: The Leftovers podcast covering the new HBO Show “The Leftovers”. The show kind of sucks right now, but we’re sticking it out. We make no attempt to hide our disdain for the show, but do hold out hope that it will eventually be worth watching. Come Monday morning you’ll be able to listen to another one. One I’m so much more excited about than The Leftovers- The Strain!

The Strain is based on a book by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan and is the first book in a trilogy centered, at least from what I can tell from the previews, around vampires. As with my other podcasts I will not know anything about the book and (based on some comments I make) about the show either. So anything that happens on the show will be new to me. Joining me so far is SRM’s and Reheated’s Rob Alesiani who has read the first book (though that might not translate to us having a more informed discussion on the show) and David Donnella (which will likely translate into me shushing more).

As always the podcast will be sponsored by Audible.com, Philly Improv Theater and whoever else sees this that wants to supply pizza, beer or cash money. Thanks everyone for listening to this bull shit. We enjoy doing it.

Reheated: S01E02 “Penguins One, Us Zero”

Reheated image 3This episode of Reheated: The Leftovers Podcast covers episode two of the HBO series “The Leftovers” entitled “Penguins One, Us Zero”. This wasn’t exactly the episode that turns everyone on the podcast into true believers in the future of the show. If anything it had the opposite effect for anyone even with a wisp of interest. It’s walking a very blurry line separating what is intriguing about the show from what else could I be doing right now besides watching this show? Regardless, we still managed to produce a podcast that is longer than the show itself. David is in Israel. If he listens maybe he’ll do his weekly “In Which” series, but for now I’ll take a stab at the apologies, which he can always add to…

Apologies to Steven King, Bill “Dauber” Fagerbakke, Duckboat and Duckboat employees, Gallagher 1, Gallagher 2, poli-sci majors, makers of Cool World, LA Confidential, and American Beauty, Mena Suvari, Wayne Brady and the still grieving estate of Casey Kasem and real fans of this show.
