Over at CC2K, my friend Phoebe Raven has relaunched the podcast accompanying her regular Television Collision column, now under the heading “Television Collision: Aftershock,” and she asked me to come in as a special guest for the inaugural installment. Given how much is going on in the television world these days – finales, premieres, renewals, shows on a hot streak and shows dragging their feet in irritating ways – I obviously leapt at the chance to return to the podcast airwaves.
Amongst the features of this installment we break down the second season finale of The Walking Dead, talk about our anticipation for the fifth season of Mad Men and the second season of Game of Thrones, the current awesomeness of Justified, and I make a case for why Phoebe should be watching Archer. Along the way there’s plenty of randomness, including a long discussion on adaptations and source material, weighing whether or not Lord of the Rings would have worked as a TV series, and for some reason a tangent on bar mitzvahs.
So head over to CC2K, scroll down to the bottom of the page (after reading Phoebe’s excellent piece on Cougar Town of course) and submit to the podcastening!
(Also, fair warning: we didn’t realize this until post-recording production, but due to an error in our setup I sound like I’m recording from the bottom of a well with a tin can microphone. I do hope you can get past my echoic tones, as this really was a great chat and worth your time.)
