    When was this recorded? Surprised House of Cards Season 4 and Daredevil Season 2 weren’t mentioned at all.

    I spent my holiday doing the same thing as Antonio, except I watched all of both The Arrow and The Flash. Oh, the shame. I watched The Flash first and glad I did as I would have given up quickly on The Arrow if I didn’t care about the world already.

  • Charles Bikle

    I’m surprised that you guys are such big fans of Arrow & The Flash – shows are OK, but have some pretty bad writing and The Flash in particular, is a bit formulaic.

    • vera lux

      They are both definitely background shows, but sometimes that is just what you need.

      I enjoyed the first season of Arrow (island flashbacks). It degenerated into too much of “This city needs to be saved” and new people every week popping up in masks. I lasted until the end of season two.

      I made it through a couple of The Flash episodes and that was enough for me. Try not to be a TV snob but there are much better shows out there than the glut of present superhero shows. As you mention, the writing..

      I even tried Supergirl for a night or two (boy would I like to…) Couldn’t look in the mirror after watching that one so it had to go as well.

    Can hardly wait for Rob’s post-show recap for American Crime Story:

    “Well, the OJ Trial is adjourned, but we’re just getting started here on Post-Show Recaps and now, here’s a guy who is missing one of his Bruno Magli gloves…Rob Cesternino !”

  • It’s okay Rob! I’m with you on Master of None. I’m only halfway through it but I find it a chore to watch. Even though I am a 25 year old living in Brooklyn and fan of Aziz from Parks, I am very surprised about the universal admiration. Half of my friends love it and the other half like me think it is only okay.

    Also I am looking forward to The Path on Hulu. As a fan of Breaking Bad and Hannibal I can’t wait to see Aaron Paul, Hugh Dancy (and Michelle Monaghan) back on TV!

    • I feel like I came down harder than I wanted to, I liked it enough to watch 10 episodes. In the final assessment almost all the stuff I liked just happened to not be the relationship stuff. The highlights for me were definitely the parents episode, the Indian sitcom, and the old lady (which I will give credit to the relationship but it was best when it was Aziz and the grandma alone).

      • Andrew

        It’s funny because I think the relationship stuff that closed the season is stuff that a lot of younger couples have gone through and go through now so they relate to it. That’s how I feel personally. Especially the relationship stuff that revolved around careers, settling down, etc. I completely get people not understanding or connecting with the relationship aspects of the show, or finding it funny. You either connect with it or you don’t I guess.

    I started watching X-Files for the first time on Netflix. I only just started season 4. No chance I’ll catch up in time for the revival, but I think I have a solid understanding of what’s going on.

  • Craig

    One event I am looking forward to tomorrow is the MADtv 20th anniversary special on the CW. MAD is one of my top 3 tv shows of all time. Considering I never thought I would see any new MAD footage ever, this is huge event for me.

  • guys! thanks for another awesome episode! Talking about the whole binge watching thing nowadays, I read some articles how `Making a murderer’ type of show could have been more powerful with network tv format. Well I’m sure it is a way to give the show longer lifetime, however with internet media like netflix, they are more reachable to people who prefer to use phones, tablets, and stuffs.

    So what could be better and effective way to deal with netflix-format shows? What can they do to keep their format and keep the buzz around the show longer? For you and us around the recap shows, what can we do to better enjoy netflix-type shows? Should we keep the episodic approach? For example, it’s been quite hard for me to follow jessica jones recap show because I want to watch them all but on the other hand I still want to follow the recap show episode by episode. Probably, only probably, most shows recapped type of one-for-all recap shows should fit better? Then I think we may miss a lot of things that can be discussed for each episode. What do you guys think? Thanks.

  • Suzi!

    Steve Harvey as Dr. Huxtable: it works ~~~
    Bill Cosby as George Jefferson, with Wanda Sykes as Florence the maid. Oh yeah.
