On episode 348, Jason (@theTVaholic) is joined by Clyde (@ClydeHaynes) & Kei (@TVwithKei) Haynes from PilotWatching.com (@PilotWatching) to talk some renewal news and then discuss recent episodes of Black Mirror, This Is Us, Pitch, The Walking Dead and Westworld. Plus, some TV recommendations at the end. (Start times of each segment)
We talked about the following four TV news stories:
- Amazon Renews Tig Notaro's One Mississippi for Second Season
- CBS Orders More Episodes Of Man With A Plan, The Great Indoors & Code Black – This somehow turned into talking about MacGyver.
- HBO Renews Westworld, Divorce and Insecure – This turned into a discussion of how many new scripted shows there are this year.
- Get Ready for More Blazers: Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Renewed for Season 2 – This turned into a discussion of late night TV.
We used the specific episodes listed below as a jumping off point to discuss the following five TV shows:
- Black Mirror – S.3 (00:28:30)
- This Is Us – S.1 Ep.7, “The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World” (00:40:40)
- Pitch – S.1 Ep.8, “Unstoppable Forces & Immovable Objects” (00:51:01)
