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, Comics Bulletin's own "serious discussion" program about television, returns with its second episode. This week, Dylan and Nick discuss Community's second comeback episode, before moving on to more important subject matter, like why this season of Game of Thrones will be a "Clash of Queens" and debating whether or not Clerks: The Animated Series deserves to return. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here.
In case you forgot what they look like, here are some visual representations of Nick and Dylan:
Nick Hanover: Co-Managing Editor of Comics Bulletin, Frequent Cleaner of Glasses
Dylan Garsee: Senior TV Correspondent, Owner of World's Greatest Tupac Ensemble
The duo kick things off with a review of "Contemporary Impressionists," Community's second comeback episode. That discussion starts at 1:40 and ends at 14:18.
Next is the inevitable Game of Thrones discussion, what with the season premier going down on Sunday and all. Dylan and Nick specifically offer up some predictions for the season and continue to fight the temptation to read the damn books already. That conversation starts at 14:21 and ends at 39:00.
And for reference, this is what the almighty Paul Brian McCoy looks like:
And everything came to a climax with a talk about the news concerning the potential return of Clerks: The Animated Series and whether the show should even get the Jean Grey treatment. Which of course led to a look back at other shows that got second chances, as well as some that might deserve it more. That conversation starts at 39:33.
Even though this is the second podcast, we're still working things out, so let us know what you think in the comments.
The theme song and namesake for the show is Total Control's excellent "Paranoid Video". We only had bumper track this week since Dylan decided to butcher the Game of Thrones theme. But it's both awesome and a subtle reference to the topic of second chances.
