Epazote #53 — The Muppet Movie / The Sensual World / Epazote / Sun City / I Am Susannah / Arrested Development

The Muppet Movie podcast review

The Immortals are back and their spirits are much higher. Instead of talking about skinheads like they did last week, they have The Muppet Movie! Also they will talk about Kate Bush, something that apparently isn’t lettuce, pretty much every musician, a sweet book about childhood and one of Austin’s all time favorite shows. What could it be? Well don’t’ look at the title of the episode or an inch below!

Best TV Episodes of 2013

No matter what we watch, my friends always want to discuss TV shows more in depth than movies. That doesn’t mean that they like these shows more than the movies we watch, but there’s something subject to debate when you break up a story into installments. There’s the theorizing about what happened next and arguing what episode was better. To view a show in segments tricks you to analyze parts of the whole and to watch the show over a course of weeks makes you more invested.

So I love talking with my friends about their thoughts on these excellent shows. Every year I like to ask them to write for my blog and show everyone their perspective. Here are 23 of my friends and myself writing about some of their favorite episodes of the year equipped with their Top 10 list. Due to when I’m posting this, there are few episodes in 2013 that sadly won’t be up for consideration like the Treme series finale, Matt Smith’s final episode of Doctor Who and the Downton Abbey Christmas Special.

At the very end you can read about what episodes were the collected Top 10 with other bits of trivia. But first let’s head over to the CW…

Best TV Seasons of 2013

TV may be getting too good. I tried to write a Top 10 and found it to be almost impossible. Luckily I’m in control of my own blog so now I have a Top 20. It’s not just that my favorite shows keep getting better, it’s that more channels are making quality entertainment. The Sundance Channel proved to have some of the year’s best programs, Netflix made huge waves with launching entire seasons at once and more and more foreign imports are making its way stateside.

People are trying to say that the Golden Age of Television is fading, but it only seems to be growing stronger. Almost half of my shows on this list are first seasons of new shows. Every week of the year seems to have at least a half dozen great shows on the air. So even with watching so many shows, there are some that I have missed usually because I don’t have the time to catch up with them.

Thus, I apologize (not really) for not being caught up on Call the Midwife, Enlightened, The Good Wife, The Legend of Korra, Parenthood, Scandal, Shameless (both versions), Skins and A Young Doctor’s Notebook. Also I haven’t even started Arrow, Bad Education, Borgen, Dancing on the Edge, Last Tango in Halifax, The Venture Brothers or The White Queen. So many shows and now here are the seasons that were the best of 2013…

 

20) Treme Season Four (HBO)

 Treme

“So what is it exactly that you want to do, hmm?”

“I want to get Caldonia’s reopen. Take over Raul’s lease, revitalize Rampart Street, fight the good fight for live music and New Orleans.”

“That’s it?”

“To start.”

Episode #3 — Paris, Texas / 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life of Arrested Development / Panch Phoron / Help / Mortal Engines / The Miraculous Mandarin

Paris Texas podcast review

The Immortals return after traveling across the desert with nothing but a red cap and a series of mistakes like in Paris Texas. But will The Immortals think the journey was worthwhile? Will they think eating a pinch of spice is really how you’re supposed to review food? Will Adam embrace the steampunk lifestyle? And what did Pedro say he did to Stonehenge? All this and more!
