Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV
EP76 - Pandora

EP76 - Pandora

November 28, 2019

Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry we’re late! Josh makes his return to the podcast to watch another one of the Worst Shows of 2019!! This time it’s the unhelpfully titled CW series, Pandora! Critics and audiences have made their opinions known, Pandora stinks! (Despite this it has been inexplicably renewed for a second season!?) Anyway it’s 3:00am on Thanksgiving morning so I’m not going to worry too much about this description since I’m pretty sure no one even reads them anyway. It’s a dumb Star Trek knock-off, and it sucks, big time.

Plus we talk about The Vampire Diaries, Gilmore Girls, and Single Parents. Pretty much anything to avoid talking about this awful, awful show.

Cut the Shit:

Josh - Emergence

Mike - Killing Eve

EP75 - The I-Land

EP75 - The I-Land

November 12, 2019

You're stranded on a desert island and all you can bring is this Netflix original series... I bet you still couldn't finish all seven episodes! We watched the critical bashing post The I-Land beginning our coverage of the worst TV of 2019! Seriously, this one nearly broke Morgan. I wasn't sure she would make it through the whole thing. If not for the competence of the adorable (and chin en-dimpled) Kate Bosworth, this might have been literally unwatchable.

Plus we go corporate talking about our love of Succession, Morgan can't stop talking about Tybee Island and her favorite show, Lost, and Mike just wants someone to get a limb cut off! More like Gouge-My-Eyes-Out-Land!

Cut the Shit:
Morgan - Succession
Mike - Halt and Catch Fire and Terminator: Dark Fate

EP74 - Magnum P.I. “The Woman on the Beach”

EP74 - Magnum P.I. “The Woman on the Beach”

October 30, 2019

Did you know that “P.I.” stands for Paranormal Investigator? Well, that’s because it doesn’t, but ghosts are abound (or are they??) in this episode of the seminal 80s classic, Magnum P.I.!! We were both shamefully unfamiliar with the mega-hit show and thought it would be fun to close out the Halloween season with a spooky episode of a cheesy 80s staple. Did it scare us down to our skeleton bones, or bury us with boredom? One thing is for sure, we talk a lot about how attractive Tom Selleck is!! Happy Halloween everyone!

EP71 - 1600 Penn

EP71 - 1600 Penn

September 16, 2019

We're back!! And so is Jenna Elfman! That's right, it's an all new Elfman on the Shelf! This time she's taking her lovable quirks all the way to White House in the politically inept 2012 NBC comedy, 1600 Penn! Now the Elfster is playing second fiddle to America's favorite singing snowman, Josh Gad! The votes are in, and viewers elected... to change the channel.

Plus we ruminate on what Jenna Elfman's porn name might be, Morgan ponders whether or not she can retroactively give birth to Josh Gad, and Mike records the next big auto-tune hit! More like FAIL to the Chief!

Cut the Shit:
Morgan - Veep

Back Reception: EP7 - Baywatch Nights

Back Reception: EP7 - Baywatch Nights

September 3, 2019

Don't call it a rerun! We celebrate 10,000 downloads with a special edition re-release of one of our favorite early episodes! Already heard it? Well, there's some all new content bookending it! We'll be back next week with a new episode but hopefully this flashback will tide you over until then. 

This week we watch the bay... and the skies!! It's the Baywatch spinoff turned X-Files knockoff, Baywatch Nights! And that means anything goes. Or does it? We're still not sure. Jason Diego Mederos (of Hi Eduardo and Oh Shit! That's Scary) joins us to to bare witness to one of the craziest shows we've ever had the pleasure to be forced to watch! It's episode 219 "The Eighth Seal" and things are gonna saucy all over your nugs... Also, we were all drinking.

Cut The Shit: Morgan - Ghost Watch  Jason - The Riches Mike - MTV's Scream: The Series

EP70 - The New Adventures of He-Man

EP70 - The New Adventures of He-Man

August 26, 2019
 

We Have The Power!!! The power to watch really bad 90s cartoon reboots that is! It's everyone's favorite muscle bound sword-swinger, He-Man! But not quite like you remember him. That's right, just a few years after Masters of the Universe, in 1990, He-Man was rebooted, lamer, and tamer than ever! Remember Skeletor, the awesome, ripped skeleton-man menace? He's here too! Except, now he sucks! What a great idea!! Just take everything that was cool about the original and make it terrible! Can you sense the sarcasm!?!!?

Plus, Morgan reveals her true robotronic roots, Mike fails to accurately remember almost anything about the original show, and we spend more time talking about 90s board games, Academy Award Winner Eric Roberts, and letting artificial intelligence complete our show for us, than the actual episode! Listen now, or we'll give you a bowl mullet!

Morgan - Mindhunter S2

Small Reception - “If an Urkel Falls in the Woods”

Small Reception - “If an Urkel Falls in the Woods”

August 14, 2019

The world has been clamoring for another Small Reception, and you know that we never disappoint! ...Okay, so nobody actually asked for it, but we didn't have time to do full episode this week, and it's better than nothing right?? We talk about Mike's two true loves: Carly Rae Jepsen and WWE wrestling, Morgan's many new soda-based jobs, our favorite TGIF shows, magic powers, visits to TV sets, and some stories about funny kids. Mostly we just shoot the shucks and read random questions from the internet. Is that anything? I really don't know. Hope you enjoy it!!

EP69 - Melrose Place (2009)

EP69 - Melrose Place (2009)

August 7, 2019

We dish out the hot goss on the sexiest episode of Bad Reception yet! That's right it's episode 69 and you know what that means: obligatory innuendos and plenty of us saying, "nice." Get ready for a buttload of gasps, slaps, and stabs in the back, it's the 2009 reboot of Melrose Place.We're joined by our good friend, and fan of the show, Tara!! Morgan shows up a little late, but I promise she's on the episode! Whether or not she watched the show... well, that's a whole other story! Haha. 

Plus, Mike fanboys over Ashlee Simpson, Tara gets excited for her alma mater, Morgan tries to figure out exactly who Brooke Burke is, and we all reveal how little we know about art! More like Smellrose Place.
