“Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan”: Anarchy in the U.S.A.

Mo Ryan and I have a packed show this week, with us discussing three shows we have recently been catching up on, plus a full preview of the upcoming 4th season of “Sons of Anarchy.” (You can read my full review of “Anarchy” here.) Times for this podcast: Intro/”Alphas”: 0:00 – 14:28 “Awkward.”: 14:28 – […]

“Sons of Anarchy”: Season 4 Review

Kurt Sutter would hate any critic calling the fourth season of “Sons of Anarchy” a comeback. I mean, LL Cool J hated that term, but something tells me Sutter would take that rage up a notch or six. Stung by the criticisms of his show’s third season, Sutter lashed out at those that didn’t like […]

“Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan” suggest some summer viewing

Mo Ryan and I are back, with an hour-long edition. Again. I know, we’re thrilled this didn’t turn out longer than “Lord of the Rings” as well. In this edition, we each offer up three shows you should catch up on this summer when programming isn’t as overwhelming as it is throughout the rest of […]

“Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan”: Podcasting through this world…all alone…

Mo Ryan and I are back with another edition of our weekly TV podcast. This one is jam-packed, with over 75 minutes of analysis. On tap this week: the demise of “Caprica,” the start of “In Treatment” and “Friday Night Lights,” a look at the British exports “Sherlock Holmes” and “Luther,” and a 45+ minute discussion […]

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Recap: ‘Caretaker’

I hadn’t been exactly feeling the early part of the third season of “Sons of Anarchy”. Too many people, separated by too many seemingly insurmountable obstacles, burdened by too many haunted emotions. My brain was stretched too thin and my heart was weighed down too heavily. Throw in a host of new characters speaking an […]

‘Sons of Anarchy’: ‘Oiled’

When “Sons of Anarchy” cooks on all cylinders, it puts its complex plot machinations to the way side and focuses on the complex characters that makes up its rival gangs. In “Oiled,” the show continued its necessarily heavy narrative lifting owed from the end of Season 2 to get things in Charming back to a […]

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Recap: ‘So’

At the end of tonight’s season premiere of “Sons of Anarchy,” all that was running through my head besides “OMG” was Ron Burgundy’s famous quip, “Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean, that really got out of hand fast.” And yes, invoking “Anchorman” to describe the horrible scene at the end of tonight’s episode, entitled “So,” […]

‘Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan’ drop two more podcasts for your listening pleasure

Maureen “Mo” Ryan and I are back, this time with another guest for our weekly “Mad Men” podcast. We had the pleasure of having Tom Fitzgerald, one-half of the dynamic blogging duo over at TomandLorenzo.com. Tom joined us a few months ago over at “Orientation: Ryan Station,” and we were thrilled to have him back […]

Why you should be watching ‘Sons of Anarchy’

“Sons of Anarchy” has the best start-to-finish season of anything I saw over the past year. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t have the pleasure of actually starting said season until last Tuesday, when the DVD set finally hit the market. Better late than never, I suppose. Like many other people, I saw the commercials for […]
