Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP66 - State of Affairs

July 9, 2019

Do you love political minutia and hate entertainment? Do you like Veep but wish it was devoid of humor? Have you always thought 24 should "just drop the whole action thing already!?" Oh boy, do we have a show for you! In a desperate attempt to find anything relevant to currently popular TV show, Stranger Things, we watched the 2014 David Harbour star vehicle (just kidding he's only a supporting character) State of Affairs! Can you believe a Katherine Heigl project was a huge failure? No way! But at least it's got President Alfre Woodard! Josh fills in for Morgan while she's "across the pond," and we struggle to make our brains absorb this exceptionally banal show.

We also try our best to talk about anything but State of Affairs, including reading the titles of books from the bookshelf, recounting direct to video National Lampoon movies, painstakingly recapping 90s Mentos commercials beat by beat, creating the hit new slang term "meeting chats," and devising the best way to trick someone into thinking you're a gem expert. As Josh always says... C.I.A.-YA LATER!
