Episode 19 – House

We both have colds this week – so we pay a visit to the diagnostic team at Princeton–Plainsboro Teaching Hospital to see if we have lupus. That’s right, this week we are going to be talking about House.

We also discuss our favourite episodes, why Jeroen may find it hard to watch Bones, what makes this a bad show to bingewatch and our joint love of Hugh Laurie.

We visit the grandmother of all reality TV shows as we watch the Loud family break apart in 1973’s An American Family.

Episode 17 – The Venture Bros.

We dust off the first of a (ridiculously) small number of animated shows from the list. That’s right: we’re watching Adult Swim’s own The Venture Bros.

We also discuss our favourite characters, the themes of failue, Peter’s annoyance over the limited number of animate shows on the list and whether Bob Dylan wrote anything better than the Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends theme song.

Episode 14 – Roots

This week on Just Watch It we have a look at what might be the most important US miniseries of all time: Roots.

We also discuss the huge viewing figures, the real villain of 12 Years A Slave, Robinson Crusoe and why having Black History Month in February is just insulting.

Episode 12 – Brideshead Revisited

This week we’re both feeling impossibly British as we dive into the 1981 adaptation of the Evelyn Waugh novel Brideshead Revisited.

We also discuss Peter’s continued obsession with the very funny Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, the ideal voice of Don Quixote’s Sancho Panza, how this measures up against Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Bleak House and the themes of religion and fall of the noble classes within both the book and the TV series (in-depth analysis alert!).

Episode 11 – The Great British Bake Off

It’s a Just Watch It bonus episode as we talk our way through something more British than the Queen’s Tuppaware – The Great British Bake Off!

We also discuss our favourites from this season, some early morning baking, international Bake Off franchises and the funniest baked good of all: the dampfnudel.
