Well, well, well. It’s been too long, members of Visser of Ozcast Nation (and by “nation,” I mean these two). After an eighth month hiatus, we are finally back with a JAM-PACKED episode of that fire-breathing, pop culture/sporty goodness you’ve come to expect from this transcontinental podcast operation.
We waste little time dusting off the cobwebs, jumping right into a discussion about season two of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Despite never-ending plot holes, repeated inconsistencies, 2D characters, and a pacing equivalent to the limp of a zombie, we somehow arrive at the sad conclusion that we will continue to do the mental gymnastics necessary to justify watching the show. Gluttons for punishment, we are.
To cleanse the AMC pallet, we do a very belated wrap-up of the terrific fourth season of Breaking Bad. Does the Walt/Lily of the Valley math add up? Should Giancarlo Esposito win an Emmy for his S4 performance? And just how badly will shit hit the fan in the remaining 16 episodes? If you think those are just rhetorical questions, boy are you in for a treat upon pressing the little play button down below.
We then make the jump from unparalleled scripted TV drama to the NBA lockout, which is playing out like a horror movie script (with David Stern playing the timeless role of “Man Wielding A Chainshaw”). We break down the owners and players positions, who we think is at fault, and why there is little reason for optimism at this point. Sigh.
Lastly, we bring the show on home with some NFL and fantasy football talk for all of you fake footballers. One of us promises the Chargers will turn it around this week against the undefeated Packers. So take that to the bank and don’t think twice.
Alright, now that the table is set, go ahead and sloppily tuck that napkin into your shirt and dig in to this auditory feast:
Walking Dead: 0:00
Breaking Bad: 0:13
NBA Lockout: 0:27
NFL/Fantasy Football: 0:39
Thanks for listening! If you want to shoot us an e-mail with any show topics you’d like to hear in the future or just to tell us why we are idiots, you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hear ya later!
