Our Who Won the Week segment from our Game of Thrones recaps has transformed itself into a new series, in which we talk about the fourth and sixth seasons of HBO comedies Silicon Valley and Veep. We are reminded once again that Jared from Silicon Valley does indeed fuck, discuss the presence or absence of hot streaks, and we learn that Shane will not be snapped at.
The gang tackles another legendary HBO series, exchanging the harsh frontier of Deadwood for the hardscrabble streets of West Baltimore. In this episode, we kick off our recap of The Wire by solving the racial representation problem in TV, discuss supper-jumping and its claim as the worst sport ever, and amongst the low-level warfare of cops and criminals in a declining American city, another great rivalry between Facebook movie groups is born.
Drew sits down with JR for our first internal MMC interview. They talk about the arbitrary process of joining the club, disagree about the worth of John Hughes, and rough theater-going experiences.
