The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 110 – TV Dads, Sense8, Last Week Tonight FIFA, and Matt Loves Star Trek



OV110 – TV Dads, Sense8, Last Week Tonight FIFA, and Matt Loves Star Trek

In anticipation of Father’s Day, Tiny and I discuss our favorite TV show dads. We break down the “TV dad” archetype into three subcategories: The Idiots, The Breadwinners, and The Wholesome Dads. For Potpourri, I share my thoughts on the premiere of Netflix’s Sense8 and declare my love for Star Trek. Also, Tiny talks about John Oliver’s coverage of FIFA on Last Week Tonight.
