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 entertainment podcast, Paranoid Video.
Paranoid Video Episode 1.09- “The Tyrion Taco is Short & Spicy”
Prepare yourselves for an especially angry episode of Paranoid Video. Sure, it begins calmly enough, with Dylan and Nick rounding up some of the weirder entertainment news stories of the week. But then the darkness begins, as they explore the frightening world of Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom. Luckily, it’s always darkest before the dawn and the episode goes out on a high note, as Dylan and Nick discuss why this might be the best year for comic book adaptations ever. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here.
The entertainment news portion of the episode starts at 3:20 and runs until 16:51
The gauntlet gets thrown at Newsroom starting at 17:13 and goes until 53:18
Here’s that classic Jon Stewart Crossfire video:

And then the optimistic superhero movie chit chat begins at 53:46
The theme song and namesake for the show is Total Control’s excellent “Paranoid Video“. The bumper music this week was the Dust Brother’s “Space Monkeys” and The Drums’ “Let’s Go Surfing,” respectively.
And in case you want to know what they look like, here are some visual representations of Nick and Dylan, courtesy of Emily Marie Palmer:
