I meant "which do NOT sit in a large swivel chair" :)

I have mixed feelings about Tim's opinion on Person of Interest. On one hand You call it awesome and on the other - stupid. I see where you're coming from but I wouldn't call this show stupid.

It has multiple villains who cannot even be easily called that. They are compelling, complicated characters which do sit a large swivel chair and stroke a white cat (btw, stroke a white cat is the name of a sex act I just made up). The discussions about privacy and morality of watching everything and everyone are also quite interesting in the show. Story arcs are rather complex and not just we have one guy who we are told is bad and on the season finale he will be killed by our good guys.

Yes, the show's one liners and Reese's robot-leg-shooting-cool-guy-in-a-suit make for some cheesiness (and that is what you, Tim, meant probably), but it is clearly intentional. It's not a show that is cheesy 'cause the writers don't know how to write clever stuff, but the writers actually try to come up with perfect cheesy lines and actions for Reese.

If anything, I'd argue, this show is one of the smarter ones on network TV. It knows what it's doing and it does it very well.

Ahhh! i got a shoutout from Price!! :) So about the recaping of supernatural when are u putting those out Tim? Because the only ones i have seen are of the new seasons. I used to read your recaps for last season but now Mary Ann writes them :( but i still get my weekly dose of Tim with Fringe! But Price can't wait for the Vampire Diaries!! Ur Teen Wolf recaps are what made me decide to sit and watch TVD :)

Two incredibly nice gentlemen. It's a real treat to listen to both interacting. I just hope Price gets to watch more of the shows Tim covers so they can discuss them in audio.

Hey Price, I swear I'll come and break your legs if you don't watch Supernatural with the proper music. (Not kidding) And get on that Fringe marathon as soon as you're done with your Supernatural fix.

Setting up an RSS feed isn't that difficult. Since you're using Soundcloud you should probably look at their help page about it. http://soundcloud.com/101/podcasting-101



There's a setting accessible in the top right corner of your public profile but you have to login to access it. (http://soundcloud.com/tvdotcom) If it doesn't show up then it may be that the account isn't setup for podcasting.



The other option would be to host the files on a server that allows you access to the mp3 files then use those in a blog. The blog will automatically create an RSS. Then you can use Feedburner to create a suitable iTunes feed. It's not really that difficult. It just takes a little time to setup.

A white haired female villain in Arrow? IMDB says that China White appears in the second episode of Arrow. (Played by Kelly Hu, by the way!) She is a villain from Green Arrow: Year One.

You should defiantly watch ALL of Supernatural!! Cuz even if 6-7 weren't as great as 1-5, season 8 shows amazing potential, and i would just ike to know why Tim stopped reviewing SPN????

My advice: don't resist the temptation - usually for anything, but especially Supernatural. Are seasons 6 & 7 a big wonky? Yes, but there are some amazing gems within that can't be missed, and more than you'd expect considering the difficult season long arcs. Price, I'll loan - reiterate LOAN - you my DVD's - stop watching Supernatural without the great music!!



I'm so sick of everyone comparing shows to Lost. The show has been off the air for awhile now, let's move on. I don't want another Lost, I just want good drama.



Between DVR's, DVD's, Netflix, Hulu and Torrents, it is time for TV execs to rethink ratings and advertising, please. Product placements suck, but I'd rather have them than commercials. Time to grow and change, TV.



Jack has lost both of his parents, he's having to deal with bitch FauxManda, and due to her he has lost his love, Emily - and now you want him to lose his brother as well?! You two are heartless!



Your analysis of Beauty and the Beast was interesting - why don't more people recognize that same abusive and damaging relationship issue with Twilight? I just don't get it.

Price's excuse for not watching Fringe: "My main problem is it's hard to find on the internet."

*SPITS OUT PIG'S EYE COVERED IN FORMALDEHYDE FOR 20 YEARS*

What?! Price, I love you, but even Gene the Cow would be appalled by that amount of bullshit (Fringe joke). There are several sites where you can watch Fringe for free, but there's a far better, completely (il)legal way:

TORRENTS, TORRENTS, TORRENTS!

Isohunt, KickAssTorrents, PirateBay and BitSnoop would all do the trick, and those are only a few sites out of hundreds.

I hope by the next podcast you have begun what is one of the best shows of the 21st Century. No more excuses, dude.

*cough Project Free tv* *cough* I won't go on a torrent rant. That's private.

Torrents make me nervous! I don't want to go to jail!

Are you contractually obligated to say that because you work for a TV site? Maybe a torrent clause in the fine print.

Something like: "If you publicly admit the relative safety and total awesomeness of downloading shows for free with the use of torrents, we will legally be able to break your legs."

It's not "(il)legal *tee hee*" - it's a violation of federal law and you have no idea who reads these comments, so if you want to be the 1 person in 1,000,000 who gets prosecuted, keep going and good luck with that. Jesus f**king christ you guys make me uncomfortable with your comments sometimes. Keep your illegal activities to yourself. For your own sakes.

Look FF, say whatever you want, but I can't relax b/c I know full well how IP law works internationally and I'm still nervous on your behalf.

Relax, silverscreenluv, relax. I live in Canada. We don't even have a legal system. And I'm pretty sure US Federal prosecutors would have a hard time finding "FringeFanatic" in their databases (believe it or not, that isn't my real name). Anonymity, dude, it's like a warm blanket.

He just does not want to tell us that he pirates shows here. Someone at CBS would have to kidnap him, tie him onto a chair and pull some fingers or cut off an ear in order for them to get the truth.

Heh. I have 4 seasons and the recent episodes all on my 750gb and 2TB hard drive. I love keeping shows. (I basically have every show I watch on both hard drives.) Some day I'll buy blu-rays of my favorite shows......(I have so many.blah....and they are quite expensive sometimes or for some blu-rays.)

I'm a TV hoarder, too! I probably have about a 2TB's of shows on my multiple hard drives.

Digital Piracy, FTW! .... Wait, I think I hear sirens in the distance ....

I admit, not his best excuse. But it is easy for shows to fall between the cracks. Some hours of the day has to be dedicated to family and work. You just can't watch TV all day. For example, I only just started watching Sons of Anarchy about a month ago. Now that TNT is rerunning Castle, I'm now getting a chance to see it. Sometimes, shows have to picked up later. Price, if you enjoy a bit of gore, mystery and sci-fi, you'll enjoy Fringe.

Loving the intro and outro music of the podcast! Also, Price, you just made me so excited for the start of The Vampire Diaries again, I'm probably not going to be able to sleep until it is on!

(2) If you listen to it, Price explains.

Cool. I commented so late last week that I was afraid you missed it. Then, when I wanted to check it again it was hard to find. I hope they keep this week's podcast handy. Like on the home page or at the bottom of the page with other "around the web" stuff.

Found it (it wasn't easy...) http://www.tv.com/news/look-its-our-new-podcast-totally-tubular-and-here-is-episode-001-audio-29683/ and you can't download this one at all. :(

I'm so happy Price is watching Revenge, and loving it too! My favorite show on television right now.

Please please please can this be turned into a proper podcast we can download to our players and with chapters so that we can skip parts about shows we're not up-to-date with (for the benefit of those of us outside the U.S. who sometimes have to wait a while for our telly fix).

The music is a HUGE aspect in Supernatural! I would definitely suggest buying the dvds - i don't know what blu ray even is.
Reply

Ya Price, you have to resolve the music situation. If you get to the season 1 finale and watch the last 5 minutes without the original music playing it will be a crime against TV.

The details so we know to avoid. Ya'll are the BESTEST!



And I'm marathoning Revenge! What a awesome show!! My bf was right. I like it better this way.

*Fringe's season 6 premiere



Haven't listened to it yet, but I'm assuming you aren't talking about the second season.
