Starring Man with Glasses

A column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee, Nick Hanover


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 1.06- "Starring Man with Glasses"

This week's Paranoid Video finds the boys discussing the fall network television schedule, which inevitably leads to some NBC head scratching. Also on the docket is Aaron Sorkin's upcoming HBO series Newsroom, which looks promising and provokes some high hopes from the duo. And the episode ends on a relatively high note as a serious discussion of the disappointment of The Sound of My Voice segues into an examination of everything Richard Linklater's new film Bernie got right. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here

The fall network television schedule round-up begins at 3:12 and ends at 25:23





At 26:24, the spotlights turns to Aaron Sorkin's Newsroom, which continues until 37:24



And closing everything up is a duel review of The Sound of My Voice and Bernie, two indie films of wildly different quality. That talk starts up at 37:48 and goes until the end of the podcast.



Trailers for those films can be found below:
