The Dating Game Killer

The Dating Game Killer

The title of this podcast and the name applied to this serial killer, The Dating Game Killer, is a bit of a head fake. After all, Rodney Alcala's appearance on the game...
Top Chef All Stars LA

Top Chef: All-Stars L.A.

Look, if you've seen one Top Chef, you've pretty much seen all Top Chefs. This is actually season 17 of the show, so they've essentially been to every "food" town and...
RTJ4

Run the Jewels: RTJ4

These Gen Z kids don't really appreciate what hip hop is supposed to be. Says the white-guy Gen Xer. But, seriously, there's an art to it that seems to be lost in this...
Solar Opposites

Solar Opposites: Season 1

Look, I've never done cocaine. I know, I know. Lame! But from what little I do know about the drug (mostly from crime films and Harry Ellis in Die Hard), it seems to me...
Run: Season 1

Run: Season 1

This show is hot garbage. There is no other way to describe it. Just when I thought I couldn't be more disappointed with its admittedly intriguing premise, I felt more...

Upload: Season 1

Upload: Season 1

I ain't gonna lie. This show is kinda trash. Worse yet, it's unoriginal trash trying to pass itself off as original. First, the name: Upload. I mean the guy who created...
Westworld Season 3

Westworld: Season 3

What a mess of a season of television Westworld Season 3 was. You'd hope I'd follow that up with "but is was a beautiful mess." But I won't. Because it was just a plain...
Better Call Saul Season 5

Better Call Saul: Season 5

The little brother becomes a man. Better Call Saul has always been the also-ran series to its predecessor, Breaking Bad. The series has been a slow burn, to be sure, but...
The New Abnormal

The Strokes: The New Abnormal

The Strokes are a band that debuted in 2001 and quickly rose to international fame. But here in 2020 are a group of 40-year-old men putting out albums that barely make a...
Briarpatch

Briarpatch: Season 1

I wanted to like this show. Every week I tuned in and thought, "This is gonna be the week this thing really turns the corner and drops some serious TV bombs on my brain...
