January 2016 Media Diary – Dylan

January 16, 2016

  • TV: Master Of None – Episode 1.8: Old People
    • The more I watch Master of None, the more I love and appreciate it. “Old People” had the immediate effect making me feel like a bad person and also comforting me by letting me know that everyone else is a bad person too.

  • TV: Master of None – Episode 1.9: Mornings
    • A fantastic story about relationships and probably the only multi-month bottle episode I’ve ever seen.


January 22, 2016

  • TV: Wayward Pines – Episode 1.4: One Of Our Senior Realtors Has Chosen to Retire


January 23, 2016

  • TV: The Office – Episode 1.1: Pilot
    • I had forgotten just how wonderfully uncomfortable this show is. Not to mention, this episode has one of my all-time favourite Jim pranks: the stapler in Jell-O.

  • Podcast: The Cracked Podcast – Episode #105: Ways America Was Shockingly Evil Very Recently
    • This is one of my favourite podcast episodes in recent memory. As casual as Jack O’Brien and the gang usually are, this feels like we’re getting under the hood of the hosts and listening to them, in real time, work through white guilt. It also includes the probably unintentionally poignant phrase, when Jack is talking about homophobic hate-speech, “the fucking eff-word.”
  • TV: The Magic School Bus – Episode 2.1: Blows Its Top
  • TV: Puffin Rock – Episode 1.37: Mossy Goes Solo
  • TV: Puffin Rock – Episode 1.38: Flooded Burrow
  • TV: Puffin Rock – Episode 1.39: Daytime Sleepover

  • Podcast: The Docket: Making a Murderer After Show – Episode 3
    • If you’re like me (and the rest of the Internet), then you can’t get enough of Making a Murderer. Alternate theories and uncovered evidence are my whole life right now. The show is two Canadian laywers, a former prosecutor and a defense attorney going through each episode of the show and providing their professional and personal insights. Their frequent guest is a former Supreme Court Justice, adding an extra voice to the conversation and, amusingly, tut-tutting whenever host Michael cusses.
  • Movie: Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!

  • Podcast: The Cracked Podcast – Episode #106: Why The English Language Is Messing With Your Head
  • Podcast: A Feedback Loop – Episode 19: Jeremy De Freitas
    • Dylan and Jesse talk about the first and likely only release from artist Jeremy De Freitas, who made the album to cross something off of his bucket list. Is it a vanity project? Is it an affirmation of just doing what feels right? I guess time will tell.
  • TV: Wayward Pines – Episode 1.5: The Truth
    • This show is becoming increasingly bad for my health. It feels like Twin Peaks and LOST had an impatient baby.


January 28, 2016

  • Podcast: The Docket: Making a Murderer After Show – Episode 4
    • More great stuff, including a scathing look at Len Kachinsky and his shit-eating grin.
  • Podcast: The Docket: Making a Murderer After Show – Episode 5
    • As Making a Murderer moves into the courtroom, our hosts really get a chance to show their stuff. We also get a fascinating comparison between the Canadian and American (or at least Wisconsinian) legal systems.
  • TV: The Office – Episode 1.3: Health Care


January 29, 2016

  • Podcast: The Docket: Making a Murderer After Show – Bonus Episode – Jerry Buting Interview
    • There’s no doubt that the breakout stars of Making a Murderer were defense attorneys Dean Strang and Jerry Buting. In this special-within-a-special, the crew talks to Buting about his experiences in and out of the courtroom. Oddly enough, the episode goes into surprising detail about how much money lawyers make.
