  2. Hey,

    Loved the podcast. Had a few comments about Chuck. I’m really hoping that BR is a much better actor playing a villian. He wasn’t so horrible in Other Guy. So, I’m keeping an open mind.

    I’m a big shipper and love C/S together. But I find myself scratching my head at the plot holes. Wasn’t the overriding theme of the season that Sarah didn’t want Chuck to be a spy? She didn’t like what he turned into. So he’s willing to run off with her and leave the spy life… and she talks him out of it? Didn’t that basically invalidate the whole freaking Shaw storyline?

    Anyway, enjoy the poscast and appreciate your efforts.

  3. In episode 10 of the Vampire Diaries, there is a scene with Jeremy is trying to be nice to Tyler and Tyler punches him. After the punch Jeremy asks Tyler “what’s your problem?” and Tyler responds “I don’t know” and while he’s saying that, behind him you see a full moon.

    So I think it’s a safe bet that Tyler and his dad are both werewolves.

  4. Did either of you get a ‘Jack and Bobby’ vibe from the Supernatural finale. The way Chuck was doing the voiceover stuff, gave me a ‘Jack and Bobby’ feel.

    What are your thoughts on Chuck’s last scene in the episode, where he disappears? Do you think he was God?

    By shanemd on May 24, 2010

  5. Shanemd – Didn’t get a “jack and Bobby’ feel really, but the voiceover is such a common device that it reminded me of many things.

    Took me a good 5 minutes to figure out what you were asking. Wondering when Chuck (Bartowski) disappeared?! Ha! Wrong show…wrong CHuck. it didn’t occur to me that Chuck was God, but you never know.

  6. “‘The Dobrev’ you go!” LOL I love you Ducky! =D

  7. dear kathy and dan

    my name is vanessa and i am one of your avid listener and although this email is not gonna make a lot of sense i just had to write it.
    when i was 9/10 my uncle was talking about this new show, he said it was a new breakout show in america and he absolutlty had to see it and since i didnt have my own tv i had to watch it with. from the very 1st episode the very 1st scene in fact i feel inlove with this show and my uncle he didnt care for it that much.
    flash forward 10 years later and i am a university student studying television and the reason why i am here is because when i was 10 i met Dawson Leery and Buffy Summers and without being over dramatic they kind of changed my life, i mean if i had been a normal kids who liked playing outside instead of scheduling my days around episodes of Buffy and Dawson then i might be studying law right now like my dad wants me too.
    Anyways recently i had to write a paper for one of my classes and i ended up writing about Dawson, so i went back and watched old episodes. it was the weirdest thing cause it took me back to my childhood and then i started thinking, i wanted to work in television because of all those WB shows i liked but those i dead and gone i mean the teen shows we have now, there is nothing new and inspirational about them. people always use to complain about how the kids of the creek sounded too adult well i have to say the kids on the CW are probably the dumbest bunch i have ever encountered. don’t get me wrong i love Gossip Girl and i am addicted to Vampire Diaries but when i go back and watch Buffy and Dawson it put things in perspective, i am gonna stop now cause i am just rambling and the more i think about it, the less i like my TV these days and i really want to like my TV. the email was mainly about teen shows cause i am 20 years old so my time has past but when i hear 14 year old girls say that that their favourite show is the new 90210 and the secret life of the american teenager it makes me want to throw rocks at my TV.

    anyways you guys are awesome and how do not have a show on Bravo yet? listening to you makes me feel like less of a dork. (that show my uncle was talking about was Dawson which was big in france back in the days)

    love vanessa from london by way of paris

  8. Great podcast, as per usual. Loved the intro. “Listeners, are you still there?” Haha I love that you guys apologize for being away every time, even though you guys are away every time! Haha. I liked the story about your late flight. I watched that unfold on twitter and it was hilarious. Although I did curse out loud when you wrote the twitter about forgetting the podcasting equipment. NOOOOOOO! I completely understand about your busy lives though and it probably makes the podcasts that much more special that they are more sporadic. I get to triumphantly announce that a new TV Talk podcast is out every few weeks! It’s exciting!

    Ducky, I too stopped watching Chuck. The relationship between Sarah and Chuck was just getting old for me. The same issues recycled over and over. I just got behind and then I realized that I didn’t really care about catching up. Periodically I will catch random episodes on Hulu but I don’t really care about seeing every episode, and that is odd for me.

    Agreed that Modern Family is perfection. Definitely my new favorite show, next to Glee, which is also amazing. I’ve been really enjoying the new episodes of Glee since the hiatus. The music is even more fun for me and I can’t wait for the GAGA episode! I rewatched the first half of the season with my mom and fell in love all over again. Aww such a fun show!

    Thanks for talking about Supernatural right at the end there. :] Thought you guys were gonna forget about it! Ducky is right, it does keep reinventing itself every season, which is really great. Although they still have the same old issues of self sacrifice. Of course Sam was gonna ask Dean not to save him and of course Dean wasn’t gonna agree to it without a fight lol. But the end was the best for me. I agree with Kath that it would be really interesting for Dean to be thrown into a John Winchester type scenario. But I’m not sure how that would play out through the whole season. I don’t want Dean to lose his family, and I thought the end with Sam coming back was perfect for a series finale. So now I’m really intrigued to see where they’ll go with it but I’m also worried they’ll shatter everything I wanted for the boys in the end… I’m ready for the show to come to a close, and since Jensen and Jared’s contracts run out after the 6th year, I’m pretty sure it’s going to end. But I’m annoyed I’ll be watching it on a Friday Night. Curse you CW!

    Speaking of Friday Nights why wasn’t there any talk of Friday Night Lights?! I’ve been waiting for SIX MONTHS for you guys to talk about it! Curse you Direct TV! Will there be a discussion next podcast? :]

  9. so VERY happy to get a new podcast on this craptastic Monday!

    I have to thank you both again for getting me to watch Vampire Diaries. It’s one of my very favorite show and Kath? I too am going to be in a bad way without some Ian every week. I think he has another crappy movie coming out on DVD soon and you know I can’t pass that up!

    I kinda loved the Supernatural finale. I was scared it would suck but it didn’t. And I am very intrigued with what will happen in S6. I love Sera Gamble and I trust she will not let us fans down.

    I have stuck it out with Chuck. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it either. Just finished the finale and liked it better than most of the past season.

    Dan, I love The Good Wife! I never watch it live but it’s on demand and I watch it Saturday afternoons. It’s so good! It’s a quietly excellent show.

    Oh! And so happy you mentioned my absolute favorite line from the Glee GaGa episode – “we’ve got a jumper!” I pee a little every time I see that commercial!

    Even if we only get one podcast a month? If it’s two hours I am down!

    Maybe the new “two idiots” can be that new show “The Event”? Not that it will be Lost but it looks like it will be plenty confusing!

    By Patty on May 24, 2010

  10. I still LOVE your podcasts even though we barely watch any of the same shows anymore.

    I’d given up Gossip Girl, but tuned in for the finale. I’m totally with you Kath on the Jenny hate. That girl (and her awful hair) totally ruin the show for me. The writers seem to love her though, as whenever she makes a mess of her life, her family/friends seem to rally around her so she never learns her lesson. I hope they kill her off soon, because then I may start watching again.
    I thought the LUX finale was terrible. A total cliche with Baze throwing open the doors to stop the wedding. I can’t believe people would actually still write like that and think it’s a surprising twist! I really enjoyed the show up until that point, but wasn’t dying for it to get renewed after such a terrible finale. I may still watch in the fall though.
    I also agree about Dawn Ostroff not knowing what the eff she is doing. Will never forgive her for canceling Everwood to save 7th Heaven. And isn’t it Tommy (druggie boyfriend) who is on Vampire Diaries, or is Colin (coma boyfriend) there too?

    I really loved the last episode of Glee. I thought they finally dealt with a “real” issue without having it be too after-school special. I’m looking forward to the Gaga episode tonight. The show always makes me happy due to the musical numbers even when the writing/plot is terrible.

    Shows you didn’t talk about:
    V-still like it, but I never really think about it outside of when I’m watching the show. I actually hope it ends next season because I want to know how it ends more than I cre about continuing the storylines.
    TAR-I was actually happy that the bothers won. They ran a great last leg, and the cowboys were compelete dipshits for not figureing out that they should spin after watching Jordan do it. They arrived just as the brothers were leaving the final task, so if they had stepped it up at the virtual reality task, they could have pulled it out. Still hate South Carolina chick.
    Ugly Betty-finally improved for the last handful of episodes. I loved the finale, which really gave everyone a happy ending. I wish there had been a minor hookup between Betty and Daniel, but since fans were divided on Betty and Daniel being a couple, the ambiguous ending probably placated both groups.

    I’m bummed that Better Off Ted and Scrubs (yeah, I eventually ended up liking the new group of kids once they dumped JD) were canceled, though their really low rating made it kind of inevitable. I don’t have many shows to watch next fall, so I can’t wait for your end of summer rundown of all the pilots so I can figure out what to watch…

    I’m also excited for the summer shows like Psych, White Collar, Royal Pains, and SYTYCD (to a lesser degree, because I think all the changes blow). I’m also tempted to watch Pretty Little Liars because the books are like crack. Can’t wait for the next podcast!

    By Dawn on May 25, 2010

  11. Nobody is so fun to listen to than you guys, so glad you podcasted!

    I need to get into Parenthood, it sounds like a really good show and now that there’s not much to watch in the summer i’ll marathon it. I hope you guys podcast in the summer! SYTYCD should be exciting again considering it’s an all stars tyope season and Mia Michaels is back! Also, True Bolood!!! I’m SO excited for True Blood!

    Vampire Diaries finale was cramazing! The Dobrev (lol) really is good at playing Katherine, i’m so intrigued to watch the Damon/Stefan/Elena/Katherine dynamics! It’s going to be a tough summer.

    I hope Castiel isn’t kept as a regular on SPN, let the writers just introduce new characters, preferably females, the show really lacks strong estrogen. Castiel’s story has run its course, besides he’s in a vessel who has a family, he needs to just return the body! I think keeping him would be fanservice and this show does too much of that. Leave the angel storyline behind, Sera, it was getting boring. Fresh new storylines please, i’m actually excited for that.

    I totally agree aboput Glee. Show is crazy flawd and the pacing and continuity sucks, but then some moments and numbers and one liners are just genius and full of heart. My biggest complain is they completely dropped Quinn’s storyline in the back 9. I don’t get why. They could give Terry a few scenes too, did they fire the actress? Whatever, I still love the show.

    What else… The Hills! Heidi and Spenser are crazy! I honestly think they’re insane. I felt awful for Heidi’s mother when she saw her daughter’s face. And she still wants bigger boobs!? My clueless, what a world!

    Anyway, thanks for the podcast guys!

    By tara-gee on May 25, 2010

  12. Yay podcast!!! Don’t worry, if you guys don’t podcast for months and months, I’ll still be here waiting! It almost make the podcast all the more special when it doesn’t come as often. But seriously, you could put out 2 hr podcasts on a weekly basis, and I’d still love it!

    Thanks for all the Supernatural and Vampire Diaries love – those shows ROCK! I think Vampire Diaries was my total surprise love from this season, just because I figured it would be super campy and stupid, and it wasn’t! Plus, Ian Somerhalder = not so bad to look at. I hope Patty is right, and he’s got something out this summer to keep me entertained and inundated with his gorgeous mug.

    Glee – still loving it, but I think I’m more critical now of the plots, and the plotholes, and the characters. I really, really enjoyed the episode centred around Artie – that flash mob scene was FANTASTIC! And Brittany continues to amaze me with her one-liners, and her awesome dance moves.

    Chuck – oh, Chuck. (Bartowski, that is!). Love it, excited it’s coming back, can’t wait for the new season and Mama Bartowski!! It’s going to rock!

  13. ver serious importand staff

    i love you guys and i always look forward to the podcast i wish some news outlet would hire you so you could do a weekly podcast like the tvguide peeps use to do. anyways
    i really trust your advice about which shows to watch mainly because Dan fave show is buffy and Kath is Dawson and those were my favourite shows growing up and now i pretty much watch the same shows u guys do (except for reality tv) every year i always follow your recommendations about which shows to look out for and you end up being right about most of the shows that i like and last year i decided to get caught up on Greek per your recommendation and ended up loving it, now this summer i really wanted to watch supernatural cause you guys always tlk about and i love both of those boys.
    i just found the 1ts 3 season on Amazon at the amazing price of £20 which is basically $30. i know this is a petty good deal but keep in mind that iam a poor college student and $30 is what i spend on my weekly grocery shopping but i trust u guys that the show will keep me entertain this summer.

  14. Thanks for talking about Doctor Who!

  15. Hey guys,
    New listener, little late to this particular podcast, but I had to drop a line. First to say great podcast! Funny (especially the HOLY CRAP I MISSED MY FLIGHT recounting) and a great way to catch up on the shows I’ll never have time to watch.

    Second to say that a name you mentioned in connection with Brothers and Sisters sounded familiar. I Googled Greg Berlanti; turns out he and I were in the same acting class senior year at Northwestern. I have to say, no lie: he looks EXACTLY the same now as he did, what, 16 years ago? Funny he’s on the other side of the business now…

    Anyway, thought you’d get a kick out of that. keep up the great work!

  16. This dtastic fall of three years was attributed to the emergence of nuclear fmilies iin the society.
    You are a couole annd couples should naturally
    display their affection to keep the relationship more passionate.
    A husband unemployed for long perid can be naggeed
    at oor belittled by his wife. Mehandi: Mehandi is a ritual celebrated a day before the Kayastha marriage; an evening full
    of fun, dance and feast iss celebrated. Marriage is not subject to aan expiry date nor should it be up for renegotiation after a number of years.

    You can also seek help from a professional marriage counselor.
    Thee bride andd the grpom do not participate in these rituals.
    The keyword is spoken gently whether or not it rerally is husband or wife.
    There aree few communities in the country which are present all over the world and are defined according to their business
    and work culture. Our core values aand beliefs are centered
    oon this, our emotional balance and coping skills are alll tied to the success we have in our
    intimate personal relationship.

    there wass a surge in the number of single-parent families in the last years.
    Friends believed that George was still iin love with Zsa Zssa and marrying her sister wass a way of holding onto his relationship with tthe fickle young Zssa Zsa.
    This is a powerful yoga for delayed marriahe and is
    further sstrengthened when a malefic associates with 7th
    lord oor in 7th house. Victory can be yours only if you arre willijng to go the
    extra mile.

    It just won’t survive. Building and maintaining
    a healthy marriage is not that easy. However, for the people who
    think aand beliege that marriage iis jusdt another ordinary rite of passage; tis could be
    the worst experience in their lives. Angry words, refusal to do
    normal domestic chores, withrawal oof conjugal rights,
    or running off to Mother, are some of the ways women show their anger.
    So why is there suffering in marriage, the answer is simple.

    Get great wedding planners and wedding organizers at My Shaadi Wale.
    Then comews the thhird period or stage this is thhe process of learning
    tto love each other in new ways which is vital foor a ouple
    if they want to stay married and live out thejr lives together.
    Even if it’s an every day thing, show some gratitude.If you are
    in doubt about the activities of your boyfriend or girlfrikend then it ould
    be good to use the Internet which is the best way to find out iff
    somrone is married or not. There are natural laws for everything.

    In cases of fight, betwewen the Aries and Scorpio married couple, it caan be a tough thing to resolve the hitches.
    Annd once some quality time has beeen spent wih the partner, one starts understanding each other’s need and becomes
    more committed. Asside from face to face communication, utilize the technology we
    have now too communicate more with your spouse.
    One can make any repationship work, iif it is given the time and effort it deserves.

    To begin with the marriage day ceremonies, balls off cow duhng ashnes
    are thrown in all the four directions, meanwhile the brides mother
    takes sseven circular rounds around the groom hoolding curd in two ezrthen pots, which afterwards are crushed by the right
    foot of the groom allowing him to enter the Brides house or
    the place of marriage. A marriage is sacred and one should take the lead to
    learn all the methods wanted to make it face up to the troublesome times.
    Marriages are built on trust, mutual respect and most
    importantly communication. Sagai- Sagai or the engagement ceremmony takes placce with the exchange of rings called engagement rings in-between the Kayaxtha Bride and groom.

    The grooms family visits the house of the bridee with gifts,
    jewelry and dresses for the bride. To stop unwanted divorce,
    couples should know howw to listen. Youu marry each other, and you live a good life together
    for a feew months or years. Once you get married, all that goes out the window.

    If you are inn this circumstance,you feel betrayed, angry and
    hurted.and you know that nothing is often changed now.

    Discover techniques you cann use to take axtion and
    start working on your marriage for wonderful results. You’ll find loot llts of couples who go against the rules, which includes getting kind andd
    thoughtful. Marriage is very sacred and, it is yyour responsibility to safeguard your marriage
    from all the attacks that are ueually present. Some of these websites allow
    you to name-search; others require you to provide more detailed information or take additional steps.

    The next step is lewarning how a mrriage is constructed,
    what a marriage actually is and consists of and what it is meant
    to do. Seek out Christian based literature which focuses on intimacy tips and techniques.
    Love does not delight iin evil but rejoices with
    the truth. After marriage registration is completed, a Marriage Registration Certificate is issued.
    If the line of marriage toucxhes the heart line then itt
    is a sure indicatioon of the death oof the life partner.

    Youu cannot increase or decrease one side without affecting
    the other. She needs to be nourished and cherished with praise and appreciation. We are experiencing divorce rateds
    as high as secular marriages. Now that’s different since most of tthe time we’re thinking about how the other person should change.

    This practice is ddone iin order to seek the divine grzce of almighty to grace thhe occasion with his choicest blessings!
    In a marriage forum, there are a lot of topics to be discussed.
    Avoid arguments reegardless of whether you don’t like what the other person has to say about you.
    They experience difficulties just like every couple else,
    maybe even more! The first step inn saving a marriage is learning
    about the pitfalls, the behaviors that destroy most marriages.

    Early Marriage – The Disadvantages When you
    lopk at it from the girl’s point of view, you’ll find thhat most
    will say it cannot be termed as anyhing but a disadvantage.
    Many couples have also revealed openly about how their wedding bells
    rang after folowing with the information available forr the bride and the bridegroom in such marriage websites.
    the save my marriage system is a comprehensive set
    of guides comprised oof a series of books and special reports!

    As a Brisbane celebrant, after congratulating my couples,
    one of the first things I advise them iss that marriage is a contract.

    Becauyse of this, the document has become a popular file in the
    stae of Missouri. Apart from accomplishing thee various
    official activities, they are able to put personalized touches to the entire ceremony.When the bride and groom are gettig dressed, the groom’s
    side will cook rice in a clay pot called Manai Pongal.
    I think it is the best reason to keep your marriage solid. Infidelity is a breach
    of trust that leaves the offended spousee deeply hurt and betrayed.
