Punch Drunk TV 107: Lethal Weapon Gets Riggs'd

Did you want a three-hour episode? Well, your wish has been granted. Maybe it's due to Jack's fluid work schedule. Maybe it's because Aaron's unsure if his baby will be born before next Friday. At any rate, we hope you enjoy Episode 107. Who knows when Episode 108 will happen?!?

Punch Drunk TV 106: Power Rangers: Stranger Danger

After a few weeks of exploring the netherworld, where we battled three-headed Trump-beasts and drank from the fountains of Cola Mountain, Jack and I have finally returned to bellow our opinions into the TV chasm.

Punch Drunk TV 102: Gordon Ramsay Goes to Hell

Another week, another set of bombshells to discuss. We do our best to talk about this Chris Hardwick scandal, but truth be told, we're both a bit too close to the drama to come at this story with unbiased clear eyes. Still, we do our best to not only explore both sides of the story, but also our own dealings with harassment allegations over the years and how they relate here.
