Talking TV Podcast Talks 'Community' and 'Sons of Anarchy' with Critic Alan Sepinwall

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 16th 2011 3:45PM
We're working overtime here at Talking TV headquarters to double your pleasure this week. We've got two podcasts for you, and both of them feature special guests.

My talk with 'Burn Notice' creator Matt Nix is here, and if you don't have time to listen to the whole thing, I excerpted some highlights from our chat on that post.

Ryan McGee and I also recorded a podcast with special guest Alan Sepinwall, TV critic for Hitfix.com. Talking TV: Part Deux finds us analyzing NBC's reasons for benching 'Community' and discussing what that means for the future of the show and the network. Alan also joined us for our weekly chat about 'Sons of Anarchy.'

The podcast is divided into two sections. In the first 22 minutes, we talk about NBC and 'Community' (and by the way, I wrote an open letter to the head of NBC here and you can find our 'Save Community' goatee-yourself post here). For the next 20 minutes, we talked about this week's 'Sons of Anarchy' episode, which I wrote about here, and more generally about where season 4 has gone and may be heading.

We thank Alan for stopping by, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the excellent Firewall and Iceberg podcast he does with fellow Hitfixer Dan Fienberg; it's well worth checking out. Thanks also to listener Carl Brand, who created the podcast logo you see here.

Don't forget that you can grab the podcasts from iTunes (where you can also subscribe) or you can get this week's discussion from the Talking TV home site.

Ryan is wrong. The Big Bang Theory has posted full episodes of the show on CBS. com. I have seen them. Suburgatory's full episodes (its production studio is Warner Bros.) is now on Hulu. Suburgatory came to Hulu in the same time that all the CW shows came to Hulu. So CBS which is also part owner of the CW has started to recognize that the Internet exists.

However, at the same time FX has tried to put the cat back in the bag. Sons of Anarchy full episodes are no longer on Hulu as well as other hit FX shows. So FX is trying to get more people to watch live.

Thanks for the correction, Tausif. Recently neither was true, and I'm glad for fans of both shows that's the case!

It definitely is good news but FX pulling their shows is big bummer. Hopefully networks don't follow FX.
