AVSEPod Episode 44: The Flintstones - "The Great Gazoo"


Podcast, it's a podcast,
'bout the modern stone age family.
From a-cross the country, 
we're talking Fred & Barney & genies.

That's right, we're going back in time to talk The Flintstones, as Carolyn & David are joined by two Very Special guests, fellow Rivercity podcaster Randall Lawrence & Mark Russell, writer of DC's Flintstones comic book, to discuss the death gasps of one of TV's all-time great shows as an undependable space genie philatro-pranks primitive man, while primitive woman blames herself in a war of the genders that's out of the stone age.

AVSEPod Episode 43: NewsRadio - "Bill Moves On"


In our latest episode, we stay in the 90s but crank up the sadness, as we review the debut episode of NewsRadio's fifth season, "Bill Moves On", in which the cast deals with the tragic death of the legendary Phil Hartman both in-universe and in the real world.

AVSEPod Episode 42: Roseanne - "Let's Call It Quits"


With a revival looming, we return to Roseanne (and shameless pop culture piggybacking!) to review season 1, episode 23 "Let's Call It Quits", in which Roseanne does her best Norma Rae impression to take on her imperious & casually-chauvinistic boss, future US Senator Fred Thompson! Join David, Carolyn & Austin as we discuss robots, beer and George Clooney's magnificent hair, as well as our pre-air thoughts on Roseanne's return to TV (shockingly, those thoughts are...complicated).

AVSEPod Episode 41: Home Improvement - "What a Drag"


More power! This week, we dive into one of the 90s longest running shows with a Very Special "just say no to drugs!" installment of Home Improvement, in which Tim & Jill are stunned to discover one of their boys is smoking marijuana. Of course, the whole thing takes on some added meaning considering Tim Allen's...shady past, and you can bet Austin, Carolyn & David point that out. They also talk about the mistreatment of Al, funny/horrifying scene transistions, and Family Feud hosts.

AVSEPod Episode 40: Taxi - "Nardo Loses Her Marbles"


This week, we finally discuss Ryan's all-time favorite sitcom, Taxi, with a very special episode about coping with the never-ending pressures that life piles on top of you. Carolyn shows up to make jokes about buttholes, alongside frequent special guest, comedian Amy Miller, who was invited on the show because she, too, could really use a great deal of therapy. Come for Danny Devito and Andy Kaufman, and stay for emotional revelations, plus also a lengthy side-conversation about what the fuck was up with that recent Jim Carrey Netflix documentary. Ibbi da!
