Mo Ryan and I caught up this week. Way up. Inspired by our “State of TV Criticism” podcast a few weeks back, we decided to look at some shows we don’t cover on a weekly basis. On tap this week: “Raising Hope,” “30 Rock,” “The Good Wife,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Modern Family.” We also snuck in one look at “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” in light of that series last episode.
New feature: I’ve added chapter markers, so those listening via iTunes will see the show we’re talking about. For those without iTunes, time signatures for your convenience below:
0:00 - 9:22: Intros and news about Mo’s upcoming panel hosting gigs
9:22 - 21:31: Raising Hope
21:31 - 37:16: 30 Rock
37:16- 52:25: The Good Wife
52:25 - 1:06:28: How I Met Your Mother
1:06:28 - 1:17:52: Modern Family
1:17:52 - End: Spartacus: Gods of the Arena
As per usual, you can subscribe to the podcast here. Subscribing is your best option to ensure you get all episodes of “Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan” as soon as they are available. Recently, there’s been a slight lag in what iTunes store shows versus what’s actually available if you subscribe, so subscribe away to get the latest and greatest ASAP. But if you absolutely hate iTunes on the same level on which Mo hates the fact that one of her favorite shows of all time is over, here’s another link for downloading MP3s. Or, you can listen to it right now by hitting up the podcast’s native site here. Lots of options. No hatin’.
