The Untempered Television Podcast is back!
If you were a regular reader of the site, I’m sure you may have started to wonder, um…what happened to all the content?
Truth is, I started this site as a fun side hobby a year and a half ago and soon let it become more like a full-time job and kind of burnt out in the process. After taking a step back for a few months, both Daniel and I agreed that we missed doing the podcast so we’re starting it back up. It will be a little more focused and we won’t attempt to cover as many TV shows as we possibly can, but I think if you liked it before, you’ll like what we’re doing now. We’ll be on a bit of an irregular schedule starting things out, but it will become a weekly occurrence again by mid-June. We wanted to be able to cover a few finales–especially Mad Men–so we recorded a podcast for this week, although our next one won’t be until Friday, June 12th. After that, we’ll have one up Monday, June 22nd and then start posting one every Monday or Tuesday from here on out (at least that’s the plan for now…).
As for the writing, like I said, this site became like a full-time job to me and so I don’t intend to start running it in the same way I did before. I am focusing on finishing up a couple novels of my own and that’s where I want to put my energy as far as writing is concerned. Still, I do plan to post the occasional feature–things like my dream Emmy ballot of the best episodes of the year list because I really enjoy doing them. So there will sporadically be written content posted but mostly this will just serve as the home of the podcast.
Like I said, this week we wanted to weigh in on a few finales but decided to kick off the show with a few minutes of Upfronts talk. That few minutes turned into nearly an hour so we decided to post that as a separate podcast. If you want to listen to both, I encourage you to listen to that one first. Here it is:
As for the main event, this week’s rundown is:
35:00-60:30 The Flash
60:30-109:00 Mad Men
