TV Geek Out 180: 30 Rock Live!

Tina Fey and company attempted the seemingly impossible, a live version of a sitcom that seems dependent on the ability to cut quickly to throwaway gags. While this may seem as difficult, and unnecessary, as a live version of Family Guy, the TV Geek Out crew were quite impressed with the effort, even if they varied in their opinions of how funny it was. So join Dana, Perry, and Heather as they break down the differences between the East Coast and West Coast versions, enthuse about Chris Parnell, and continue to gush over the always amazing Jon Hamm. Check it all out here.

TV Geek Out 179: Mad Men, "Chinese Wall"

Dr. Faye Miller might claim to have a “Chinese Wall,” but leave it to Don Draper to demolish that defensive structure and get her to abandon her own ethics. After all, what woman doesn’t fall for Don’s much-employed charms? Certainly not our favorite Canadian, Megan. In the meantime, Peggy finally falls into bed with someone she isn’t actively deceiving, Roger reveals the truth -- sort of -- about the end of Lucky Strike, and the partners take advantage of a funeral to network for new business. Yes, it was a Mad Men episode chock-full of beginnings and endings, so join TV geeks Perry, Dana, and Heather for a spirited discussion of the fourth season’s 11th episode here!
