I heard about Appointment Television from Jennifer over at Feminist Fairy Tale Reviews, and it’s definitely a fun podcast. Three friends, Margaret, Kathryn and Andrew, discuss TV each week (on Thursdays). I will admit that most of the TV they talk about are shows I’ve never watched. But I don’t mind, and sometimes I decide to watch something based on what they say (The Great British Bake-Off, for example).
It’s very clear that these three know a lot about TV, and I love the sometimes intelligent, sometimes silly conversations they have about different TV programming. They have lots of fun segments including a TV Book Club, where they let listeners know ahead of time what show they will be watching, and they they discuss it, and my favorite segment – TV vs. TV where they decide which TV Show best exemplifies a certain subject.
But what I love the most about Appointment Television, and why I don’t really mind listening to their podcast when I often haven’t seen the shows they are discussing, is the rapport they have with each other. They always make me giggle, and that is always a good thing.
So, if you’re a TV fan (or maybe if you aren’t) definitely look into Appointment Television.
