Here’s the latest ep of The Obsessive Viewer Podcast! We were originally going to have Chris Spangle from We Are Libertarians on to discuss the Fall TV season but due to technical issues on our end, we had to bump him to next week.
Instead, we introduced a new concept to the show that we look forward to doing once per season. We were flying by the seat of our pants while we figured out, on the air, how to do it. Nevertheless, we had a lot of fun recording it and we hope you enjoy listening to it!

Our co-host Mike White got married last weekend! Send your congrats to him in the form of a Twitter follow!
This week on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast, we’re back for more gruesome Shocktober conversation. This week we discussed Halloween-themed TV episodes. It was a lot of fun and a little unique.
Since Mike was on the verge of getting married, we had limited time to record with him. We recorded what we could last weekend and then Tiny and I handled the potpourri segment sans Mike. Not to worry, Mike will be back next week and many more week’s to come.
I hope you enjoy this episode and be sure to check out PodcastLand.com for a very comprehensive collection of podcasts you can listen to. While you’re there, vote for us for Podcast of the Month! It would mean a lot to us. Continue reading

Over the last decade, there’s been a steady shift toward more cinematic storytelling on the small screen. TV has dug its heels into the consciousness of the viewer like it never has before. While the television medium has become a juggernaut of long-form storytelling, it is not without its cast of disposable, irritating characters.
Everyone has that one character they wouldn’t mind seeing buried alive on a beach, mauled to death by a female goat or drowned in a creek filled with tears of their own narcissistic self-pity. Below you’ll find some of the characters whose appearances will have me checking my twitter feed, updating my Facebook or biding my time contemplating why I would even watch a show with such an irritating character.
Fair warning, there are some SPOILERS throughout this list so read sections at your own discretion… Continue reading

Thanks to The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, the horror genre is in the midst of its biggest television presence since Tales from the Crypt camped up the airwaves of the 1990s. Now A&E is trying to get in on the ground floor by taking a beloved character of the genre and enlisting network hit makers to create a modern day prequel series.
