If it sounds like Joel is doing the podcast from his bathroom, it’s because Skype picked a different microphone and Joel had no idea. So he may be a little hard to hear, but the conversation between Jason and Joel was still pretty lively:

  • We talked about the casting of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn on True Detective, and if viewers will watch the second season without trying to solve a big mystery (00:00 – 07:15),
  • Joel watched the finales of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex and talks to Jason in vague terms about each (07:15 – 14:45),
  • Then we start going around the dial, talking about fall premieres. Jason hated Forever, and he tells Joel why (14:45 – 19:30),
  • The Mysteries of Laura is getting good ratings, despite its suckitude. We discuss what will happen if the show sticks around, and if there’s any chance that it’ll get better (19:30 – 26:40),
  • Then we talk about the premiere of How to Get Away With Murder and how mesmerized we were by Viola Davis, even though she wasn’t given a ton of screen time. Shonda Rhimes and Peter Nowalk need to concentrate on Davis if the show is going to be any good (26:40 – 43:15),
  • Then we talk about the strong debut of Black-ish, how funny it was, why it’s rounded out a strong family-oriented Wednesday comedy block for ABC, and why the name and ABC’s lousy promos for it did it a disservice (43:15 – 57:15),
  • We then discuss the premiere of ABC’s Selfie, and go into a long talk about the rash of rom-com sitcoms that are on now. We try to figure out why trying to stretch out a 90-minute movie format over multiple 22-episode seasons rarely works (57:15 – 1:18:45),
  • Then we talked about the successful Family Guy/Simpsons crossover episode, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s return, and how the animated FOX shows on Sunday should help B99 and Mulaney (1:18:45 – 1:23:00),
  • Joel didn’t watch the SNL season premiere, but Jason did, and talked about Darrell Hammond’s announcing getting lost in the music, Michael Che warming up to the Weekend Update anchor chair, Colin Jost’s continuing stiffness on WU, and more (1:23:00 – 1:26:30),
  • Finally, we talk about the return of Agents of SHIELD and how it’ll be carrying the torch for the Marvel universe between movies. Does it matter that it might lose casual fans (like Joel)? (1:23:00 – 1:40:45)
