Untempered Takes on Last Month’s TV-April 2018 Edition

In March, I debuted this new column where I go through the TV of the past month and share a few thoughts on what I felt was the best/worst that I watched. I ended up getting sick right around the time I was going to write and post last month’s edition and by the time I was better, we were a little far into the month to still go through with it. But in case you were a curious, an abbreviated version appears below this month’s picks.

But for now, welcome to May, here’s what I thought about April TV….

TV For President Episode One-Jane The Virgin, Guilty Pleasures and More

Happy to report that I’m podcasting again! Daniel and I had to stop quite a while back because our schedules just didn’t work out but I really missed doing it so I began the search for a new co-host. That has led to the creation of a new podcast called TV For President where I will be joined weekly by Shreya Durvasula of depthsoftv.com.

In our debut episode, we discuss the current season of Jane The Virgin, whether or not it should be considered a guilty pleasure (and what even IS a guilty pleasure?) and we introduce ourselves a bit by sharing about the shows that transformed us into the passionate TV fans we are.

Our sound levels were a little off this first time out but we worked to make it sound as good as possible. The end result is pretty good (better when you listen with headphones) but we promise it’ll improve with future episodes.

 

If you have thoughts on the episode, we’d love your feedback. Tweet at us @TVForPresident or email tvforpresidentpod@gmail.com.
