Our last pod of the year! We covered all the pilot of 2019 we missed, our favorites of the year, a retrospective on the best TV of the 2010s, and the fallen heroes of the decade. We covered so much ground, 19 pilots. This has been an amazing year and decade of TV.
This week we did HBO’s Los Espookys! We talk about the use of Spanish in the show and Latino’s relationship to the occult. Thanks to @elrandomehero for joining us for this ep!
This week we got an early preview of the Good Omens pilot. Hear us talk about nature vs. nurture, determinism, and other Neil Gaiman adapted work. BONUS: Cesar recorded illegal audio of a Q&A with Gaiman.
This week we talk about HBO’s Chernobyl. We discussed the history of the event, the Cold War as a lens, and the politics of the show.
This week we unlock the door with the key of imagination, we cross over into The Twilight Zone. We talk about comedy’s role in a social and political space, deals with the devil, and the divisiveness of GoT’s final season.
This week we talk about about Latinx representation in animation, from Coco to Victor and Valentino. And oddly enough, wrestling. Trumpito lives and dies by kayfabe.
Yo bitch! This week we revisit Breaking Bad. We talk about how purposeful the pilot is, the legacy of the show, and the show’s dark metaphor for the American dream. Grab your tighty whities because we have to cook and throw pizzas on the roof.
