That Thing You Like #32 – Breaking Bad (w/ Game Time Decision)

Breaking Bad - The Finale

BREAKING BAD just ended. After a couple weeks spent digesting the finale, THAT THING YOU LIKE is ready to talk about the show’s place in the pantheon of all time great television! But for a show this grand, this monumental, this epic (to borrow a completely overused adjective), we know we couldn’t settle for any half measures. So, enjoy our full measure: A no-holds barred, 90+-minute Breaking Bad pod with the boys of GAME TIME DECISION!

First, to business! We were on this week’s episode of GAME TIME DECISION! If you come to THAT THING YOU LIKE for its witty banter, there’s a whole lot more of it on their pod! Plus, we talk Batman and Jurassic Park playsets. Go listen!

Mike and Ryan from Game Time Decision brought some really interesting views to the table, and allowed us to discuss the merits of binge-watching versus having the “from day one”, week-to-week experience. We also debate the ‘too neat’ criticism of the finale, talk favourite moments, and finish with a round-table, off-the-draft-board-style CHARACTER POWER RANKINGS! Our favourite thing, but this time, with four people! It was great times.

Also, there’s some audio issues with the episode – apologies! Please look past it where you can, and enjoy the great quality of discussion. It’s blue-crystal good. Was that a lame Breaking Bad joke? Alright, that’s it. I’m out. I’m out like a New Hampshire-isolationist cabin. I’m out, and I’m watching Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.

If you liked the show, please rate and review us on iTunes, and be sure to tell your friends! Also, let us know your favourite Breaking Bad moments. Did you think Holly was going to die? You’re not alone, but real talk, that would have been a huge bummer.

That Thing You Like #25 – Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black

Netflix has found its first truly great show, and it’s ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. It’s progressive, funny, and poignant, and THAT THING YOU LIKE couldn’t resist chiming in with our own opinions! We spend the majority of the pod talking about the show’s truly amazing, diverse ensemble, which of course gives us a chance to bring back our beloved POWER RANKINGS. Don’t ‘edge’ – treat yourself to the full pleasures of this podcast experience!

Okay, so, everyone loves Nicky. She’s the best. But the show really does have an amazing cast of people from all kinds of backgrounds. The show’s been getting a lot of deserved praise for its portrayal of well-rounded characters, addressing binary gender issues, and being pretty damn funny while doing it. It’s a hell of a watch, and we were only too happy to spend an hour talking about what stood out in ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’s veritable ocean of awesome.
