They discuss their feelings on the show’s return, “Monster-of-the-week” episodes versus mythology episodes, and TV’s growing revival trend.

NOTE: David Milch created “Deadwood,” and David Lynch created “Twin Peaks.” Too Many Davids.

Fauxworthy Podcast Episode 16: ‘Angie Tribeca’ and the Strong Return of Dumb Humor

Tribeca 1


A couple quick notes about this episode:

  1. We were woefully misled by the tricky, tricky Internet and should note that anything we say regarding season two of “Angie Tribeca” starting today (Jan. 25) is patently false and flat-out wrong. Turns out, “my understanding” was correct in the first place! Regardless, we felt this was worth uploading because in the grand scheme of the conversation, the number of episodes there are and when they air is kind of irrelevant. Just know that the next 10 Monday nights on TBS will be used to RE-AIR SEASON ONE. We will not have 20 episodes of this show this spring. We will only have 10.
  2. Also, a less important, time-related note. Bryan says we are recording our second podcast of the week during the episode. The reason he says that is because we recorded the conversation about “Angie Tribeca” last week! Good day, and good night to you all. (Gee whiz.)

In this episode, Bryan and Taylor discuss the new TBS comedy “Angie Tribeca” and its triumphant championing of dumb humor and dad jokes.

Here’s the timeline:

Examples of Jokes and Humor to Expect 05:16-10:15
