Join us as we discuss the most recent winner of our What To Watch Next TV Bracket: Pose! Then we exhaustively review the shows we’re watching, shows we’ve lost, shows we might consider adding, and shows we’ve put on unintentional hiatus.
In this episode, we tackle two listener questions. First, we are pretty miserable at recommending good binge-watching practices. Then, we tackle (hee) the question of sports, zeroing in on the uniforms with laser-like precision. Thanks for the questions, @sophiebiblio and @surlyspice!
