Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP68 - Poochinski

July 30, 2019

We're getting too old for this dogsh*t! This week we're joined by our pal Ben Hunter to watch one of the most notoriously bad TV shows of all time, the gritty crime drama turned goofy fantasy sitcom, Poochinski! Nothing can prepare you for this unbelievably silly premise that concerns grumpy cop Peter Boyle, a lovable bulldog, brutal murder and... magic?? It only took a single episode for the network to realize this was one bone that was better off buried! 

Plus, we spend an absurd amount of time discussing our new (possibly grittier) While You Were Sleeping TV spinoff, Ben tries to remember anything that Peter Gallagher is in, Mike recaps the entire plot of the 1992 film Cool World, and Morgan repulses herself describing syrupy dog urine! When you're here... you're Poochinski! 

Cut the Shit:
Morgan - Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Ben - Big Mouth
Mike - Crawl
