Welcome to our inaugural episode! Right off the bat we had so much to say we had to split our first episode into two parts! In this first part, we start with a quick introduction to each of us (Jason, Amrie, & Rae) and how our obsession with television began and what made us into the TV bloggers that we are today. Then we talked about some TV news including recent headlines, casting information, and show pickups. And we finished up with a fond look back at the shows we watched over the summer from new shows like The Secret Life of an American Teenager and In Plain Sight to some of our old favorites such as Burn Notice, Psych, Eureka, and many more.

Listen below and let us know what you think! And don’t forget to check out Part 2 of the inaugural podcast for our discussion of the new fall season.
