Coming from the country, Brod, Damask, and special guest Hannah Dallas know just what it's like to go back to your hillbilly home town. From the thinly veiled homophobia and the constant stench of slaughtered pigs, to a the on-the-loose serial killer and creepy gothic mansion that your expertly passive-aggressive witch of a mother lives in, SHARP OBJECTS paints a picture that is all too familiar.

Ep. 56 - The Wire: Season 3

It's time to get the band back together! After putting away some drug dealers, Baltimore's best boys on the beat head to the docks to sniff out some good-ol' blue collar crime.

Ep. 35 - Game of Thrones: Season 7

Political intrigue. Death and gore. Fantastical dragons. Incest. GAME OF THRONES has something for everybody. While Georgie-Boy continues to delay the release of his next written instalment (most likely hoping Drumpf with start a nuclear conflict with North Korea and save him from ever having to finish his unwieldy narrative) the TV show pelts full throttle towards a conclusion. Season 7 brings us to the top of the home straight, but did it drift around the turn effortlessly or crash and burn in a fiery wreck? Damask and Brod bring you their exclusive report.

If you don't know already you might actually be in the best position to experience this show. But can a show that is all about it's mysteries survive past it's reveals, or is it good enough that even those cursed with spoilers will still enjoy it?
