Talking TV Podcast Reacts to 'Sons of Anarchy' Madness, Talks 'Fringe,' 'Homeland'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 9th 2011 4:25PM
Ryan McGee and I had lots to discuss in this week's Talking TV podcast.

As we are doing every week until the end of 'Sons of Anarchy's' fourth season, we discussed the latest developments in Charming and what these shocking events may (or may not) mean for the show's future.

We also delve into the current seasons of two dramas with strong followings: Fox's 'Fringe,' which we're both somewhat disappointed with this season, and Showtime's 'Homeland,' which has had a very strong start to its debut season. Still, being paranoid types (which somehow seems appropriate), we wonder if the show will be able to mix big, suspenseful reveals with character-driven drama all season long, or if one of the other might suffer as the time to supply answers draws near.

This week on the Talking TV podcast, Ryan McGee and I discuss AMC's new Western drama, 'Hell on Wheels,' we gab about this week's episode of 'Sons of Anarchy,' and we delve into some of the fall season's winners and losers.

Ryan and I each picked two winners and two losers: One of my winners was 'Revenge,' and one of my losers was fall's other woman-with-a-secret drama, the CW's 'Revenge.' Ryan chose ABC's Wednesday comedy block as a winner and 'Terra Nova' as a loser.

To find out what our other winner and loser choices were, grab the podcast and enjoy!

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 26th 2011 2:45PM
Good news (we hope) for SAMCRO fans: Now that 'Breaking Bad' has concluded its fourth season and we're not gabbing about that drama every week, Ryan McGee and I will be discussing 'Sons of Anarchy' weekly until 'SOA' ends its fourth season Nov. 29. In the final segment in this week's Talking TV podcast, we talk about Tuesday's eventful episode.

Before that, behold the magic: We talk briefly about the return of 'Beavis & Butt-head' on MTV on Thursday, the arrival of the new crime drama 'Whitechapel' on BBC America Wednesday, and the debut of 'Allen Gregory,' Jonah Hill's new animated comedy, Sunday on Fox. Then we talk for longer periods about 'Chuck's' return on Friday and the debut of the supernatural detective drama 'Grimm' the same night on NBC.

Running times are below.

For this week's podcast, we had a special guest for the last segment.

Before we got to 'Boss,' Ryan and I discussed 'The Walking Dead's' new season and its boffo ratings, and we also gabbed about the new ABC drama 'Once Upon a Time,' which premieres Sunday.

This week's podcast focuses on a new show, a program that just had its season finale, and a drama that's heading toward the end of its season.

In the first part of the podcast, Ryan McGee and I talked about FX's 'American Horror Story,' which debuts Wednesday (I reviewed it here). In the second part of the podcast, we talked about the season finale of 'Doctor Who,' which I wrote about here.

Finally, we wrapped up with a chat about the penultimate episode of 'Breaking Bad's' gripping fourth season. Just a heads up: After it airs, we'll have extensive coverage of the 'Breaking Bad' season finale, including an interview with creator Vince Gilligan and a 'Bad' Talking TV podcast featuring a special guest.

Talking TV Podcast Takes on 'HIMYM,' 'Breaking Bad,' 'Doctor Who' and More

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 21st 2011 2:45PM
On this week's Talking TV podcast, Ryan McGee and I delve into the return of 'How I Met Your Mother,' the great season 'Breaking Bad' is having and reader questions touching on 'The Killing' and 'Doctor Who.'

A couple of side notes: Ryan and I will be talking about 'Breaking Bad' every week from now until the show has its season 4 finale in October.

Also, we are dropping a special 'Fringe' podcast Friday night or early Saturday. We thought it would be best to talk about that show after everyone had seen the season 4 premiere, so look for that podcast then. I won't do a separate post on the 'Fringe' podcast, just check the Talking TV site or iTunes for it.

Running times are below.

Talking TV Podcast Takes On 'Sons of Anarchy,' 'Happy Endings,' 'Alphas' and 'Awkward.'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 1st 2011 2:30PM
Things are ramping up on the podcast front as the fall season approaches. But before we're deluged with the comedies and dramas that premiere later in September, Ryan McGee and I thought we'd take another look at three shows that premiered earlier in the year, and one veteran that's returning for its fourth season.

We discussed 'Alphas,' the Syfy drama I recently re-reviewed here, in the first quarter of the podcast. Then we talked about 'Happy Endings' and 'Awkward,' both which I recently wrote about as well (and there's a bit of 'Wilfred' chat at the end of the comedy portion of the podcast). Finally, we moved on to a 20-minute (non-spoilery) discussion of the fourth season of 'Sons of Anarchy.'

The running times for the podcast are below.

In this week's Talking TV podcast, Ryan McGee and I talk about the new season of 'Torchwood,' which arrives on Starz Friday.

But 'Torchwood' (which I'll review later today or tomorrow morning) is not all we talk about -- Ryan and I also took on several reader questions in the final third of the podcast. Running times are below.

Don't forget that you can still leave questions on this blog post or email them to me here. I'll be doing an Ask Mo column in a week or so, so please shoot me your TV-related queries!

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 30th 2011 3:30PM
Before the holiday weekend got underway, Ryan McGee and I recorded a podcast focusing on three June shows: 'The Big C,' 'Weeds' and 'Necessary Roughness.'

There's also a bit of a rant from Mo about the reaction to 'The Killing' (no, I'm not ranting once again about the show itself, just about a certain kind of reaction to it).

We round off the podcast with Mo's answer to Ryan's Bonus Birthday Question. What's the question? Well, you'll just have to tune in to find out.

Running times are below.
