The classic procedural detective show, one of the most reliable and most satisfying television formulas, how could HBO possibly screw it up? BGaS favorite KayDee Kersten joins Ivan & Red to talk a show with an incredible cast, a terrible beginning, a worse end, and Matthew Rhys getting humped off a bed.
When a streaming service greenlights a show based off viral paintings by a swedish artist you know it’s gunna get weird. Ivan & Red come down on entirely different sides for on this atmospheric, nostalgic, foreboding, and gorgeous 3.5 Star prestige sci-fi show.
The Tailies (that’s you for the purpose of this episode) DEMANDED we cover episode two of Snowpiercer and we are nothing if not loyal to the passengers on this content train.

An impossible to make movie has inexplicably become a tv show that nobody was asking for. Ivan & Red grab a roach brick and sit down to watch Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs & The Rocketeer’s Jennifer Connelly hop on a literal and metaphorical trainwreck.
