Ep 363: The Wrong Mans

This week we take a look at the thriller/comedy from the BBC, The Wrong Mans, created by and starring James Corden and Mathew Baynton.

Brett brings us an I Don’t Buy It or two – something a little on the freaky side… If you want to see them, check the show notes below.

Along with that, there’s some Crushes and What to Watch and some chatter about what our co-hosts are getting up to away from the studio (there’s some details about that in the notes as well).

Ep 362: Lucas Testro & True Detective

It may not be strictly all about TV but it’s a big one and it’s full of entertainment. And it’s all dediKated.

We have a rollicking time talking to writer/director, Lucas Testro about his work on quality Australian TV and also touch on his podcast, NonCanonical. It’s a fantastic show and you should all listen to it after you’ve finished this.

True Detective goes under the microscope this week. It’s from HBO and stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

With Crushes and Letters and What to Watch, this is one massive episode of Boxcutters to kick off 2014.

Ep 361: Hello Ladies

Don’t call it a christmas show or even an end-of-year wrap up – we will be touching on that in our next episode – but another hard and fast Boxcutters episode.

We have a bit of a tussle over the polarising Stephen Merchant US comedy on HBO, Hello Ladies.

Tuddy give us some Angry Old Man action. Marian reaches back into the past for her All My Crushes segment.

And Dave reminds us that kids say the darnedest things.

Get into it because it’s the last of 2013 and we’ve got some big plans coming your way.

Ep 360: Hostages

It’s a hard and fast episode of Boxcutters this week.

Steele Saunders is back as we take a look at the Toni Collette/Dylan McDermott series, Hostages.

We’ve got a rant from our Angry Old Man for the good of the country. Marian‘s All My Crushes is a rather Doctor influenced affair.

And there’s fascinating tidbits sprinkled liberally throughout.

Ep 359: Masters of Sex & Lauren Rosewarne

We have a very smart-sexy Boxcutters for you this week after our short hiatus (sorry about the delay).

Masters of Sex comes into the lab and goes under the microscope, fully wired up with a loom of response sensors. We’ve been going over the data and have some results to report.

Dr Lauren Rosewarne is a political scientist who writes, researches and comments on sexuality, gender, feminism, the media, pop culture, public policy and politics and she is also joining us to talk about the representation of sex in TV shows of today.

Add to that the Crushes and Letters and What to Watch and this is one pretty packed episode of Boxcutters so sit back and relax and let us stimulate you.

Ep 356: Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This episode of Boxcutters feels like we went to the hairdresser and they were a little over-exuberant… it feels a little short is what I’m saying.

We’ve got some surprising views on our reviewed show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, with Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher.

Our Angry Old Man has some barely contained rage, Marian defends and adjusts All My Crushes and we’re making a call on some Crap TV.

All of that and more awaits you in this episode of Boxcutters – PLUS there’s eye candy for everyone past the jump below.
