In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Justin and I are a couple of geeks. This is evident not just by how passionate we are about the things we love, but also by how awesome those things are. Movies, television, and video games have become so incredible in quality that it’s now more popular to identify yourself as a geek than not to. It’s not lame to unapologetically love that which is genuinely so good that everyone enjoys it. I mean it’s even cool to have a podcast that discusses stuff like that . . . probably.
The thing is, we’re more than just geeks of the time. It’s hard wired into our system, and we’re better men because of it. Shows like Star Trek, Buffy, and countless others made us open to every type of appearance you could imagine early on. Kept us receptive to cultural differences, and instilled the ability to always see ourselves reflected back. I think it’s this that has made us search for content from all over the world. Having discussed international entertainment with several friends and co-workers recently, I’ve come to realize that not everyone is comfortable with this idea. I’m here to say that’s a mistake. There are incredible pieces of art being made from all over that you will love. I promise.
In this episode we discuss British TV shows that you need to be watching. Keep listening!
So, here we are again: the first of another month, the first day of October. October, a month that, mostly through its association with Halloween, has come itself to be viewed as perhaps the creepiest of months. Certainly more creepy than September, and far more creepy than June, which is likely the least creepy of them all. February, itself quite creepy, holds not a candle to the level of creepitude displayed by October. October really ought to tone it down a bit. To be honest, we’re all kind of sick of October’s shit.
Anyway, let us take your mind from the impending horror of the month at hand, and have a listen to our latest offering – Episode 18 – in which we discuss some of our favourite British television programmes.
