Help Us Pick This Summer's Theme!

Hi everybody! Summer is upon us, and last year, we stumbled into a four-episode theme week of sorts, in which each of your four intrepid hosts selected an episode from ABC's "TGIF" lineup to review. We had such a blast doing that (and you all seemed to enjoy it), we decided to make a summer theme run an annual thing. But because we're all terrible at making decisions, we're putting the onus on you, the listener, to help us decide this year's theme.

So leave us your vote in the comments (and on Twitter & our Facebook page, if you're so inclined), and whichever choice gets the most votes across all platforms will be selected as our summer theme this year!

AVSE Summer Theme Poll
  1. Crossover episodes (in which characters from one show appear on a different show)
  2. Bad episodes from good shows
  3. Episodes from four different shows featuring the same actor (Actor TBD; leave us suggestions!)
  4. Episodes from NBC's "Must See TV" lineup

AVSEPod Episode 48: Glee - "Grilled Cheesus"

With a song in our hearts and the divine on our lunches, we turn this week to Glee, season two episode three, "Grilled Cheesus", in which Jesus appears on Finn's grilled cheese, Kurt's dad falls into a coma, and everyone sings their feelings about religion! Join Carolyn, David, Austin and special guest, fellow Rivercity Podcaster and former Glee extra, Kyle McCormick, as we talk snazzy hats, Glee's confusing habit of transitioning from diegetic to non-diegetic music, the unfortunate circumstances of two of the cast members, and much, much more.

So come out, Virgina, don't let 'em wait, then download and listen here, rate & review us on iTunes or listen via PodbeanStitcher and Google Play. You can follow the show on Twitter, like our Facebook page, and email us via

And be sure to follow Kyle on Twitter @Kyle_McCormick, and check out his podcasts, Reboot, Reuse & Recycle & Spec Script!
