Pop Culture at its Best

The Televerse #218- Holiday Omnibus 2 with Deepayan Sengupta

Our usual format is back this week on the podcast, with PopOptiq’s own Deepayan Sengupta joining Kate to talk through a very full week in TV. First we look at the comedies, including fantastic episodes of You’re the Worst and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and catch up with Other Space season one. Next are the genre offerings, including the premieres of Les Revenants season two, Grimm season five, and Ash vs Evil Dead season one, as well as plenty of superhero and The CW fare. We finish out the week’s TV with the dramas, with a deep dive on The Affair and a timed roundup of Kate’s notable drama viewing, and afterwards, we head to the DVD Shelf for the second installment of the Holiday Omnibus. This time, Deepayan and Kate look at three memorable (or otherwise, as it turns out) Halloween episodes: Quantum Leap’s “Boogieman”, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s “Halloween II”, and the beloved classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

    IZombie- Major is torn up with guilt. Last season he thought being a Zombie was the most self loathing thing he could be. He come to realize being a Hitman for Maxrager might be worse. After seeing the the families he destroyed in the media. The families who will continue to suffer because they will never know what’s happened to their missing loved ones.

    I’m one of the people who didn’t know how to submit my request for the DVD shelf. My first option is Kieslowski’s The Decalogue. It’s short, so it won’t take long to finish, and it’s widely considered some of the best work ever done for television. My second option is longer but still limited: the 1972 BBC War & Peace miniseries, with Anthony Hopkins.
