    Syndicated - LOST

    Well, it has come to this.  Syndicated bids farewell for the time being with a long-awaited discussion of critical (and panel) favorite, LOST.  This island drama set the standard for modern sci-fi on television, and introduced viewers to a type of storytelling they'd never seen before.

    This episode, we have Luke and Andy on the panel, returning champion Jonathan Metts (Box Office Poison, Austinmates, Discover Music Project) and Crosstawk fearless leader Karl Casteneda (Box Office Poison, A Force To Remember, Rough Draft).  For Jonny, this was his first time watching LOST.  For the rest of us, we were visiting an old friend.

    We'll be back someday, when you least expect it.  Until then, keep your Chromecast handy and your Netflix subscription paid.  Thanks for tuning in.

    Syndicated - Freaks And Geeks

    Travel back in time with your trust TV watching friends Andy, Luke, Neal and Nathan as we look at the beloved 1999 comedy Freaks and Geeks.  This show has become legendary over the years for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its cast: Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardelini, James Franco, and more, all before they truly became stars.

    We dive into the 18 episodes on offer to see if the Apatow origin story still holds up.  Stay after the closing theme music for a special annoucement about the future of the show.

    Syndicated - True Detective

    Although perhaps inconsistent, we are not yet idle.  Syndicated, the TV podcast for the lapsed viewer takes a look this week at True Detective, the first season of the HBO critically acclaimed anthology series.  

    On the couch this week are Andy, Nathan, and friend of the show Zach Miller.  Zach has been itching to get us to talk about this show basically since the very beginning of our Syndicated adventure, over two years ago.

    Syndicated - Silicon Valley

    Has it really been so long?  Yes!  It has!  After taking a bit of a late summer (fall?) break, the four lapsed viewers are back to talk about HBO's Silicon Valley.  We've been threatening to cover HBO content ever since HBO NOW was announced, and we're about to jump in with this Mike Judge comedy starring Thomas Middleditch, TJ Miller, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani and others.

    Syndicated - Bloodline

    We're not bad people, but we made a bad podcast.  Just kidding, this episode is great! Light on hosts, but heavy on great discussion; Andy and Luke sit down and talk about the bitter pill that is Bloodline.  

    This Netflix exclusive was so divisive, one of our hosts outright refused to finish it!  Why the controversy?  You'll need to tune into this gritty family drama to find out. 

    After you're done listening to the episode, why not send us an email at syndicatedpodcast@gmail.com or maybe tweet at us @SyndicatedPod?  We'd love to hear from you!

    Syndicated - Mad Men Series Finale

    We're taking a break from our standard format to cover a single episode; the May 17, 2015 series finale of Mad Men: "Person to Person".

    Andy, Luke, and Nathan are joined by Kelly to talk about our thoughts, theories, and reactions to the episode, the final episode of one of our favorite shows of all time.  

    As promised before, we'll be back next time with our take on Orange is the New Black, a Netflix exclusive. Look for that epsiode in a few weeks.  In the meantime, send us an email or a tweet.

    The other big news is that Syndicated now has it's own dedicated podcast feed.  You can continue to find us on the standard Crosstawk feed, but we are also now available as a stand-alone podcast.  You can subscribe using this feed: http://www.crosstawk.com/storage/syndicated.xml or searching for Syndicated in the podcast player of your choice.

    Syndicated - Mad Men Season 7 (2014)

    It's here... the beginning of the end. Mad Men draws to a close in just two more weeks, but we're giving it a proper eulogy by covering Season 7 (Part One) of the beloved AMC drama.

    Join Andy, Neal, Nathan and Luke as they discuss season 7.1 of Mad Men.  There will be spoilers aplenty for the first six seasons of the show, so if you're not all caught up, you might want to save this epiosde for later.

    Now that we've given Mad Men the send-off it so rightly deserves, we will be moving onto something a little different: the Netflix exclusive Orange is the New Black.  Stay tuned!

    Syndicated - Mad Men Season 6

    We've finally broken tradition; rather than cover the beginning of this modern TV classic, we've decided to cover the ending.  Right now as we post this, Mad Men is mid-run through their final seven-episode run, and to celebrate we're covering the 1.5 seasons that came immediately prior.

    Join Andy, Neal, Nathan and Luke as they discuss season 6 of Mad Men.  There will be spoilers aplenty for the first five seasons of the show, so if you're not all caught up, you might want to save this epiosde for later.

    Come back next week when we cover Season 7.1, the batch of seven episodes that aired in 2014.

    Syndicated - Twin Peaks Part 3

    We've reached the end of our odyssey. Through 30 episodes we've laughed, we've cried, we've screamed, and we've scratched our heads. 

    Andy, Luke and Nathan come back for a third and final discussion to wrap up the second season of Twin Peaks, covering episodes 14 to the bitter end.  After that, we discuss the theoretical (and apparently now very unlikely) 2016 Showtime revival of the series, and our impression of the series as a whole.  

    Thanks for coming along on this adventure.  It's been wild.  Next up on Syndicated, we'll discuss season six of Mad Men.
