Log in to Reply Luke Kerr April 15, 2014 I think Jenna, and maybe Mel, watch Bates Motel so we could discuss it on a future podcast if they do. Thanks for listening! Log in to Reply bobbyew April 15, 2014 ^^^ Thanks Luke. My name is Luke as well. Log in to Reply luverica April 16, 2014 Preach Jamey! Olivia Pope is a hypocritical ho and Pres. Fitzgerald Grant is a sanctimonious Dynasty style murderous punk bitch. If anyone needs to slap somebody it’s my girl Mad Mellie Mel who needs to haul off and slap Olivia hard across her face. I’m no fan of Jake either since he killed my boy James but I’m SO over Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings. Yeah, I went there. I mean even Momma Pope calls her the help. Tom-Tom can hit it from the backside in broom closets but Mellie can’t get her own good-good. How can anyone defend that level of hypocrisy? Oooh, this show really tests me sometimes. With all that said…great podcast! Log in to Reply marknsprmo April 17, 2014 I actually enjoyed the smaller episodes on The Walking Dead this season. I thought it allowed for more character development as well as some very emotional stories. I can see how maybe a whole string of them made for a bit of a drag but I thought the pay off as the season finale provided, was well worth a bit of dragging. Luke I agree about Shameless too. It was the first time that I wasn’t hanging on every minute. I even let a few eps get away from me. I think most of Shameless’ problem was William Macy spent too much time sick. That and EVERYONE was having a bad time of things. We needed some comic relief and the potentially funny stories (the multiple births, the hookers above the bar) didn’t work until of they put Joan Cusak front and center wanting to marry Frank and adopt ten little indians. However the show did get a new star in Mick.Ian and Mick are the new supercouple on the show Mick finally gave that role the heart it needed. I LOVED everything about the last ep though EXCEPT one thing….. Jimmy. Is he coming back to wisk Fiona out of town? I hope not. I need Fiona to stay around.

Also can’t wait to get the crew take on Scandal last show for the season. Luke your a tv news junkie like myself and do you watch CNN’s docu-series Chicagoland? I like it and was wondering if you and the crew watch it… Log in to Reply Luke Kerr April 24, 2014 @titanman – I haven’t watched Chicagoland. I enjoy political coverage, but I haven’t had a lot of time to watch it as news. I mostly read political coverage now because I can hardly keep up with all the daytime and primetime TV shows on my DVR.
