A lot can happen in a month, especially on television. Kath and Dan are finally back to discuss what a month can do to a couple of TV podcasters. There’s our typical shit-show approach but in this episode there’s some great conversation about a lot of our favorite shows. We missed you listeners, we hope you missed us as well! Welcome back friends.


  • “How cute did his face get when you finally saw his abs?”
  • “It had a great run, a great 18 season run even though we’re only on season 2.”
  • It’s the end of the series Cappie, what are you gonna do? Greek series finale discussions.
  • After the podcast, Ducky realizes that once again he’s completely murdered a beloved TV figure’s name. Can you catch it?
  • Who? Fiona Fucking Faraday!
  • Either Ducky has tourettes or there’s a technical glitch in the 34 minute range. WTF?!
  • NPH once again evades the stalking and not so stealth Kath.
  • We wax waaaaay philosophical on The Good Wife. It’s a Eli and Kalinda love fest.
  • Glee Paley Panel discussion.
  • 1:04:50 – yes, she did…
  • Top Chef All-Stars – who did we think would face off against Blais?
  • Grey’s Musical – Genius or Fuck Stupid?
  • Robin Givens? Not so much…
  • Do we or Don’t We talk about TVD and SPN?
  • The Killing kills it.
  • ABDC has the worst camera work on television.
  • Upcoming returning shows
  • Our thoughts on The Hunger Games casting!
  • A major SYTYCDebacle
  • Shows we cover in this episode: Friday Night Lights, Pretty Little Liars, Greek, Bethenny Ever After, How I Met Your Mother, The Good Wife, Parenthood, American Idol, Glee, Top Chef All-Stars, Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Parks & Recreation, Community, The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural (or do we?), The Killing, America’s Best Dance Crew, So You Think You Can Dance

    3. A little off topic, but ABDC came back this week and at first I thought the show had been gone too long and I wouldn’t like it the way I sed to. After the first performance I fell back in love with show. Didn’t realise how much I missed it.
      Don’t like that they got rid of the challenges, but love that they added D-Trix to the judging panel. wasn’t a fan of Omarion.

    4. The Killing – REE-DONK-U-LOUS!!!

      From the Emmy worthy acting, to the sets, and the dark lighting, camera work and constant rain. I tweeted that it was like snuggling up with a really good mystery novel on screen. Lurve it!!!

    5. Yay! Missed you.

      Top Chef – Loved that Blaise won. Thought Elia came accross as a little unstable both when she was kicked off and during the reunion special. If she was really interested in getting Tom to do more to support natural food, she could have done that without going through the media. Just comes across as sour grapes.

      I can always get behind an ice cream break.

      I thought the Greek finale was a mixed bag as well and Evan and Becca did get the short shift.

      The Killing has been great. The actors that play Rosie’s parents are heartbreaking. The bathtub scene in the 3rd episode was amazing.

      You guys made me finally understand why I got so frustrated trying to watch ABDC. It is really bad camera work! The only judge that gives any useful feedback is JC.

      Love the podcast, guys!

    6. I’ve missed my Kath, Dan, and Digby fix! Glad to have you guys back in my life.

      For the record, I thought Toby was cute before I saw his abs. I can’t really say why, I know he’s an odd looking guy, but I enjoy his face in addition to his nice set of abs. I’m also in agreement as to what an insane ride season one was, and I’m glad we don’t have to wait too long before season two!

      As a non-Grey’s viewer, I actually watched and enjoyed the musical episode. But I think that was largely in part to my love of Sara Ramirez and her voice, I didn’t pay much attention to the storylines and I definitely won’t be watching any more episodes.

      Hey, are you guys watching the US version of Being Human? I thought it would be right up your alley with the vampires, werewolves, and supernatural beings. The finale just aired this week, and I was a huge fan!

    7. Hi @Kimber!

      I so loved this last season of FNL and there was no way I was waiting until all the episodes aired to watch. I was so afraid to be spoiled – I kind of enjoy being so busy that I have no idea what will happen on any of my shows! So I watch the whole season over th weekend and will now enjoy a rewatch and discussion with all my twitter buds!

      Pretty much, I didn’t watch anything else you talked about! I did watch the first episode of ABDC and was annoyed – even with my SYTYCD crush Dominic – the way they talk all slangy is just annoying to, yes, it’s me again, old, bitter and jaded. Please speak English. Thanks.

      I a so excited to have Supernatural back this week. I have no idea what is going on. Vampire Diaries last week was crazy and twitter is all aflame that this weeks episode is totally excellent. Or maybe that’s just a rumor. I am sure it will grand!

      Dan, good luck with the film fest this year. Kath, don’t talk to strangers at the airport. Hopefully, you two will get together in May to wrap up all the TV for April/May!

      I just watch The Good Wife from this week and the ending was heartbreaking. Brilliant acting from Julianna Margulies. I think I was not the only one who wasn’t surprised by the whole Kalinda reveal. I swear they hinted at it somewhere back in S1. Or I am just old, bitter and jaded and just assumed.

    8. I so wanted to like the Grey’s musical episode but it just didn’t work. I thought the first song was okay because Callie was hallucinating it. She saw herself singing and then Hunt started and I knew it was in her mind. But then people were singing when they were no where near her and it just took me out of the story. If they had just left the songs as something that was happening in Callie’s head it would have been a better show. I mean really when the doctors were arguing about her treatment and Hunt started singing again I felt like I was watching Cop Rock. It took all the tension and emotion out of the scene.

      My other problem with it was that the songs were way too long. My goodness I know the Grey’s use a lot of slow songs but did they have to go on for ten minutes? Just because they like a song did not mean that they had to use it. That episode would have been very powerful w/out the songs. Too bad

    9. Wrote my first comment not noticing that you guys talk about it in the show. I’m a goof.

      I agree about the poor camerawork, been complaining about it since the first season, but the talent is so good this season, I will put up with the shitty camerawork.

      Definitely going to start watching The Good Wife over summer. Ducky’s enthusiasm for it has me very excited to start watching.

      Really enjoyed the show and look forward to future episodes.

      By shanemd on Apr 16, 2011

    10. You guys need to read The Uglies series and perhaps podcast about it.

      Also, you guys need to podcast ASAP because serious $#*! is happening on tv!

      By Mia on May 8, 2011

    11. Hi Guys,

      WHERE ARE U GUYS??? Game of Thrones has started and The Killing is going strong. Hope all is well with your real lives. I will keep looking at my iTunes list to so I don’t miss when you update.

      By UKUSATvAddict on May 8, 2011

    12. Greetings from Sweden.
      I’m a big TVjunkie and I love your podcast, it’s really entertaining and funny.
      I only started watching The Killing because fellow swede Joel Kinnaman is in it but now I’m obsessed with it. It’s kind of refreshing with a show that’s focused on solving a murder and it’s not a procedural. You can get deeper into the mystery and get to know the victim’s family. I generally don’t watch procedurals so it’s kind of nice to finally get a show I can watch that’s revolved around a murder mystery.
      Do you know if the show’s going to get renewed for another season after this? I seriously hope so.

      Well wishes and looking forward to new podcasts

    13. Hi folks- I loooove you so much and miss you terribly. Here’s the deal. I have a half marathon on May 29- yep, 13.1 miles. Takes me about two and a half hours of non-stop running to complete. the ONLY thing that will get me through is another one of your awesome podcasts. So please… post another podcast before May 29!!!

      By Jenster on May 12, 2011

    14. At this point, I will volunteer to run in a marathon if it means a new podcast. LOL Though who are we kidding, I can’t run for more than 10 minutes. =)

      By Mia on May 13, 2011

    15. hey just a quick hi from another faithful listener (even if I wasn’t at my pc for the last few podcasts to write essay like comments while listening!!) Hope life isn’t too hectic, and that IFF boston went good (Dan) and life is good for both of you.

      I’m another listener missing you guys. I especially want to know what Dan thought of Being Human UK season 3, since I saw he caught up… and Dr Who too. Please don’t leave us too much longer without a podcast. pretty please?

      By Laiq on May 15, 2011

    16. Hey you guys,
      Missing you like nuts right now! So much is going on and I want to get your ever so enlightening feedback on them. It’s funny. I love hearing someone say aloud the things I am saying to myself about this shows and episodes. I know you are busy with you, but we need you guys to chime in. Here are my request of shows to recap, dissect, praise or angrily berate:
      1- Vampire Diaries- that finale was bananas right? What are your thoughts of the future?
      2- Fringe- say what? say who? Did you understand the things that you saw?
      3- Office- did the finale have you crying or kicking?
      4- Glee- I believe we have found a character to absolutely dislike now. And her name is Quinn, right?
      5- Mentalist- you had to see that finale cause it was Awesome!!!!
      6- Grey’s Anatomy- What are your thoughts on Cristina?
      7- The Good Wife- Is this like the best tv ever?

      Okay, this is my list for now. Will I add more? Whose to say. All I know is I need some Ducky dialogue.

    17. Missing you guys, because:
      1. LENNY KRAVITZ?!? / Katniss EW cover
      2. lisa Edelstein? & House finale (really last two season have been amazeballs tv)
      3. Shit-for-Brains is back- and pitiable?
      4. Parks & Rec is killing it. but wait….
      5. cancellations (wah-wap traffic light?)
      6. pick ups (playboy clubs, other mad men ripoffs)
      7. The Good Wife, on Sunday?
      8. Friday Night Lights.
      a. oh you julie taylor.
      b. when did tyra’s sister become a good parental figure, oh wait nevermind Becky’s gonna strip.
      c. will they recognize the girl’s (fill-in-ferraday) ability as a coach

      10. Does HIMYM have a hope of not sucking again soon? (see sad note about Traffic Light as only reliable reflection of our generation while HIMYM is off the rails)

      11. can ricky gervais possibly diss/deny (dissing is -ok/not possible- because he owns it) american office anymore?

      @Mimi, Christina is selfish but honest and as her chemistry with Hunt is MIA, i could care less, but she might as well get on that train or she will be the only main character without a baby. Alex has all sick children of the world.

      By Laurie on May 24, 2011

    18. Kent Boyd and Alex Wong dicussing the season finale of Glee:

      Kat and Ducky, please tell us when we can expect a new podcast!

      By Mia on May 25, 2011

    19. @Laurie, you took the words out of my mouth about Christina. And Tyra’s sister kinda grows on you. She is a crazy SOB, but she really loves her goofy husband and family. And also thanks for reminding me of FNL.

      8- Ofcourse I want to hear feedback on the season so far. And poor poor Julie. One big mistake after another.

      By Chitown mimi on May 26, 2011

    20. @mia Thanks so much for posting that Alex / Kent interview thing. Was so sweet and awesome, had to laugh as they debated mentioning Lauren / Dominic getting together though because obviously it’s not “secret” but they didn’t want to just out them….
