Talking TV Podcast on What You Should Do on Your Summer Vacation

by Maureen Ryan, posted May 11th 2011 3:00PM
The rest of the month will be filled with season finales and news about various cancellations and pickups, but this week, before all that madness hits, Ryan McGee and I thought we'd try a different format for the Talking TV podcast.

We each offered three suggestions for shows to catch up on over the summer. My suggestions: 'Battlestar Galactica' (which BBC America is re-running starting June 11, not June 18, as I mistakenly state in the podcast), 'Deadwood' and 'Louie' (which returns on FX in June). Ryan's suggestions: 'Alias,' 'Parks and Recreation' and 'Sons of Anarchy.'

During the recording of the podcast, news of the cancellation of 'The Chicago Code' broke, so we briefly spoke about the Fox news as well. Running times for each section of the conversation are below.

0:00 - 8:40: 'Parks and Recreation'

8:40 - 15:05: 'Louie'

15:05 - 23:33: 'Sons of Anarchy'

23:33 - 32:50: 'Deadwood'

32:50 - 40:39: 'Alias'

40:39 -53:29: 'Battlestar Galactica'

53:29 - End: Breaking Fox news regarding cancellations (I offered my thoughts on where various Fox actors and producers should go next here).

Don't forget you can subscribe to the Talking TV podcast on iTunes. This week's podcast is also available here, as are full archives of every 'Talking TV' podcast. The entire 'Talking TV' archives are also available on iTunes as well.

Thank you, as always, for listening!

I second the recommendation for Louie and Parks and Rec. Those are both fantastic shows and I hope that many other people will join..

Personally for my summer plans I'm going to be doing a lot of catchup on a lot of different shows. For my site, I'm probably going to end up covering season 1 of FNL, season 1 of Veronica Mars, and another show TBD (I don't formally announce these till Monday, so you heard it here folks!) And in my spare time I have Buffy S7, 24 S8, Downton Abbey, and I may take your suggestion to watch Sons of Anarchy.

If I had one recommendation for others in their summer catchup it would be Community. I feel like this show would play very well in a marathon because you'd get a sense of everything the show does very well and get many different senses of the show.

(I hope it's ok that I plugged my own stuff, if it isn't please feel free to tell me.)

Hey guys, great podcast this week. I recently went back and listened to your old podcast looking back on Lost as a series and I loved it. I was thinking you should do another podcast like that for other shows, namely BSG. You guys obviously love talking about it and it would be great to hear you discuss the series as a whole without worrying about being non-spoilery. And since you just suggested it for summer rewatching, it would be perfect for the end of the summer!
