No longer content to merely review television through the creative use of Friskies gifs and awkward jokes, Dylan Garsee and Nick Hanover have moved on to the internet airwaves, co-hosting CB's own television podcast, Paranoid Video.
Paranoid Video Episode 1.05- "A Bunch of Dogs without Horses"
After some technical difficulties left Paranoid Video's classic fourth episode lost in a black hole, Dylan and Nick have returned to talk about tv like two chimpanzees working away in a sea of Shakespearean typewriters. This week, the subject was the inaugural Moontower Comedy and Oddity festival, which the boys attended on behalf of Comics Bulletin. From there it's entertainment news which segues into a smash-up dueling review of the newly launched Veep and the newly returned Parks & Rec. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here.
The Moontower round-up begins at 3:10 and continues until 29:59.
The John Mulaney bit about Law & Order: SVU referred to is this one:
Next up was some brief entertainment news, beginning at 30:30 and ending at 36:14
And finally, Dylan and Nick forced Veep and Parks & Recreation to duel to the…nondeath in the political comedy sweepstakes. That joint review starts at 36:15 and concludes at 52:46
This podcast featured a new microphone that we are still working out the kinks with, since this episode was literally recorded immediately after the microphone was purchased. But feel free to tell us what you think about that addition and anything else in the comments.
And in case you forgot what they look like, here are some visual representations of Nick and Dylan, courtesy of Emily Marie Palmer:
Dylan Garsee is a freelance writer/bingo enthusiast currently living in Austin, TX. He is studying sociology, and when he's not winning trivia nights at pork-themed restaurants, writing a collection of essays on the gay perspective in geek culture. An avid record collector, Dylan can mostly be seen at Waterloo Records, holding that one God Speed You! Black Emperor record he can't afford and crying. You can follow him on twitter @garseed.
When he's not writing about the cape and spandex set and functioning as the Co-Managing Editor of Comics Bulletin, Nick Hanover is a book, film and music critic for Spectrum Culture and has contributed to No Tofu Magazine, Performer Magazine, Port City Lights and various other international publications.
