Meet Me In Daegu. We’ve reached the point in the HBO prestige genre series where we abandon the primary storyline and have a singular episode inside a completely different world. Ivan & Red talk about the things that happen in this good episode of television!
Strange Case. Much like Tree, The Fun Adventure times are left far behind as we dive deep into then “Gore” element, leaving behind Boars and Swords entirely. Ivan talks Bones, Gore, & Viscera while Red describes the part of the episode he glimpsed through splayed fingers.
A History of Violence. Only after Holy Ghost could an episode with a severed arm in a door be a reprieve and a fun romp through adventure tropes. Ivan & Red ditch Tree and talk pulpy adventure tropes!
Whitey’s on the Moon. When an episode is as perfect as the Lovecraft Country pilot, you are honor bound to podcast about the entire season. Ivan & Red talk perfect horror tropes, the incredibly racist white lady, and the problematic nature of medieval fraternal organizations.
Misha Green’s HBO adaptation of Matt Ruff’s Lovecraft Country just might be the best pilot of 2020. Ivan & Red walk in with two completely different understandings of whether or not Lovecraft Country is adapted and the extent to which monsters exist.
HUZZAH!!! Hulu dropped the best hour long drama show in the first half of 2020 and it’s called The Great. Ivan & Red talk their favorite Fanning, their fandom of The Favourite, and fondest Wield (Dual).

Hamilton, the musical sensation of the millennia featuring countless flawless performances and also Lin-Manuel Miranda. Ivan & Red fire up the ol’ Disney+ and talk one corny (and great!) hip-hop musical.
