AVSEPod Episode 77: The Pitts - Pilot


It's time for our annual summer theme marathon, in which we spend the summer reviewing episodes fitting a certain theme picked by you, the listeners! This year, we're looking at "One Season Wonders", episodes of shows that only lasted one season. And we're kicking it off with The Pitts, a Fox sitcom from the early 00s so bad it redefined "bad TV" for a young Dr. Bitz. Join David, Carolyn & Austin as they pore over the surprisingly-deep IMDB credits of this cast, introduce Carolyn to the Midwestern wonder of crop art, and try to decide if this show is really as bad as the reputation David has given it.

AVSEPod Episode 76: Step by Step - Back to School


This week, we return to TGIF and the 90s Brady Brunch to check in with the Step by Step gang, in an episode where perennial dum-dum JT learns all his problems in school might not be caused by being a dum-dum, Frank & Carol try to pass a snooty inspection, and White Urkel & his girlfriend try to suppress their throbbing biological urges. Join Ryan, Austin & David as they talk privilege and the college application process, the extreme horny-ness of TV's Patrick Duffy, and, of course, the Codemeister.

AVSEPod Episode 75: Murphy Brown - You Say Potatoe, I Say Potato: Part 2


In this week's episode we tackle Murphy Brown for the first time (a show which burned bright but isn't around much anymore, thanks in part to just how topical and zeitgeist-y it was), with the episode in which the titular Murphy Brown responds to Vice President Dan Quayle's attacks (in-universe & in real life) on Murphy's decision to become a single mother. Join Carolyn, Austin & David as we talk Quayle's infamous spelling mishap, the death of print media, and the triumphant return of Peter Bonerz.
