Another week, another excellent episode of Lost
. Another week, another two episodes of American Idol
worthy of intense discussion. Idol
are the two most water-cooler appropriate series on TV these days, and it's really not even close. While some Lost
fans might completely disregard American Idol
as a mess of trifling silliness, they shouldn't. Even if you don't like the types of music on display, even if you can't stand the oppressive Seacrestian reign, even if Paula Abdul
rankles you to the core, American Idol
is worth watching if only for the pure spectacle of the proceedings. It is a monstrous endeavor, full of real human drama, rags to riches stories, underdogs triumphing in a grand forum, and chock full of inspiring performances. When it comes to quality, however, Lost
triumphs all these days. After watching the first four episodes of the season, all you can really do is throw your hands up in the air and scream, “Uncle! You win, Darlton.”
Once again, I, Oscar Dahl, have joined fellow BuddyTV savant John "Kubla Khan" Kubicek for another round of the BuddyTV Podcast of Glory. Please listen to the soothing sounds of two TV fans discussing the pressing matters of Bikini Girl, time travel, Noop Dog, and French scientists. Enjoy.
You can listen to the full podcast below.
Topics of Discussion:
The peculiar editing of American Idol, and how they decided to show the drama between a few teams rather than feature the performances of the better groups.
Our favorite and least favorite contestants of the season thus far. We are pretty much in agreement so far, a rarity. Once we get to know the singers more and more, you can expect more contentious debate.
The time travel format on Lost, and how long they can/will/should keep it up.
Various theories, involving Danielle, the Aljira Airlines people, where/when the island has moved to, and much more.
