Episode Notes

In a very rare move for this podcast, this week’s show is all about American television, as we dive deep with three very different, very good genre shows from the end of 2019: Disney+’s outstanding Star Wars series The Mandalorian, HBO’s wildly ambitious Watchmen, and Netflix’s unexpectedly strong The Witcher. Every one of these shows was a pleasant surprise – some more so than others – and each wrangles a tricky property into serial television in really interesting ways. They’re all worthy of discussion, and it was a lot of fun to break each of them down. Before that, we also give some first impressions of the Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot video game, and talk about the news that Netflix is, inexplicably, developing a live-action One Piece TV series.

Enjoy!
