Episode 10 - Throwing the Book Out of the Window

January and the end of December were a touch crazy for new TV so Michael and Max have abandoned their normal format for this episode and are just trying to get through as much of the things they've been watching as they possibly can. The episode is spoiler-free (beyond the fact we may talk about events central to the premise of the show or that happen in the first episode) so no worries on that front. If you're looking for a new thing to try out or to catch up on some hidden gems from last...


End of 2017 Review - Part 4

In the final part of their 2017 review Max and Michael count down from 3 to 1 and we finally find out what their respective top picks for their year of TV are! Spoiler free.


End of 2017 Review - Part 3

Christmas is almost upon us now and Max and Michael pick up where they left off, looking at numbers 4, 5 and 6 in their end of year TV rankings. Spoiler free.


End of 2017 Review - Part 2

Day 2 of the festive review and Max and Michael are looking at numbers 7-9 on their top TV of the year lists. Spoiler free.


End of 2017 Review - Part 1

In the first of four special episodes Max and Michael look back at 2017 and count down their top 11 shows of the year (yes, yes, top 11). Episode 1 finds our hosts looking at #11 and #10 as well as their biggest surprise and biggest disappointment of 2017. There are no spoilers for anything in this podcast. Except maybe your ears.


Episode 08 - Michael Has A Little Tickle

What could be more festive than Michael and I discussing Netflix around sporadic coughing fits? Follow the timestamps below to jump to a specific piece or enjoy the whole thing? Spoilers within for The Sinner (the start of the section is spoiler-free if you're just curious) but all else is clean. 00:00 - Intro 02:09 - Action Scene Debate 08:19 - Quick Cuts (Witnesses (BBC4), Broad City (Comedy Central & Sky)) 14:36 - The Sinner without Spoilers (Netflix & ABC) 19:33 - The Sinner with...


Episode 07 - Four Pumps of Farrah Fawcett

Another month, another chat. This time out Max and Michael take a look at Mindhunter, Stranger Things 2 and Rick and Morty amongst other things. Full running order is below. SPOILER WARNING: We discuss Stranger Things 2 frankly and with no regard to spoilers. There are a couple of minor spoilers for Rick & Morty too but nothing to get too excited about. 00:00 - Intro 01:58 - Quick Cuts (Room 104 (HBO/Sky), The Deuce (HBO/Sky)) 12:15 - Mindhunter (Netflix) 31:13 - Stranger Things 2...


Episode 06a - All Hail Wally Brando

A small bonus episode in which Michael and Max have a spoiler-filled discussion of Twin Peaks - The Return. I'm not joking, it's chock-full of spoilers so if you haven't watched all of The Return then give this one a miss until you have. Unless you don't plan on watching it. In which case, why do you care? Go and do something else. The dog needs walking and the dishes need doing. Stop reading this and do that.


Episode 06 - Chatum Tanning

This week Michael and I can barely keep up with everything we're watching at the moment so you get initial thoughts on Time: The Kalief Bowder Story, Star Trek Discovery, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams and House of Games. We also think back over TV series' we have just finished in Comrade Detective, Ozark and Twin Peaks: The Return. Spoilers Watch - The episode contains one spoiler for the end of season two of Twin Peaks (no spoiler for the Laura Palmer murder plot). Personally I don't...


Episode 05 - Uncle Benjy & His Horse

Another month, another podcast and this time Michael and Max are switching their focus a bit more towards Amazon than Netflix with discussion of Bosch, Patriot and Preacher. Sky gets a little love with Game of Thrones chat and False Flag but, unfortunately, Netflix is out in the cold this month. Sorry, Netflix, we hardly knew ya. Spoilers Watch - No spoilers this month except for MASSIVE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS! Seriously, our Thrones chat is just a discussion of the events of Season 7 so...


Episode 04a - Leftovers Finale Thoughts

In another special bonus edition of the podcast (you lucky mothers) Max and Michael dig into the third and final season of the Leftovers, discussing why it was so effective and getting into some details of the stories. Obviously there are major spoilers for the show within so if you haven't seen season three (or any of it) yet then don't listen until you have. And, also, go and watch it, it's great. The Leftovers is available in the UK on Sky and Now TV as we speak.


Episode 04 - Double Fish

This month Max and Michael struggle through a mild case of over-proteining to bandy words about Hulu's Handmaid's Tale, SyFy's The Expanse and Starz' American Gods as well as trivial chat about Nathan For You and Veep. There are some minor spoilers for The Expanse and American Gods. 00:00 - Intro 03:23 - Nathan For You 07:14 - Veep 09:39 - The Handmaid's Tale 19:15 - The Expanse 30:29 - American Gods 46:40 - The Defenders 50:00 - Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later 55:42 - End


Episode 03a - The CHUCKfest Debacle

Max, Michael and special guests are back and in various states of inebriation in this special bonus episode of WIGWIONAWS, recorded live at CHUCKfest 2017. Unlike our usual shows this one will be focused around the films we watched at the festival as well as such diverse subjects as salad, Nottingham, Star Wars fan theories and the viability of shotguns as hunting weapons. Apologies should be given in advance for the poor recording quality (even by our low standards) and also for the...


Episode 03 - Top 10 TV 2017

In their third podcast, Max and Michael eschew the long held traditional format and, instead, break down their favourite TV of 2017 so far in a Top 10 style. Spoilers for all the shows discussed today are very minimal but timestamps are below in case you want to check what we discuss and skip past certain things. 00:00 - Intro 03:25 - Fearless 07:18 - Twin Peaks 10:34 - Top Ten TV of 2017 11:34 - Catastrophe 15:08 - Homeland 18:28 - Big Little Lies 21:09 - Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 24:39 -...


Episode 02 - A Broad Church

In their second podcast Max and Michael take a look at the BBC's Broadchurch, Netflix's Sense8 and HBO's The Leftovers as well as American Gods and Genius. There are spoilers for seasons 1 and 2 of the Leftovers so if you want to avoid them please use the running order below to skip past those segments: 00:00 - Intro 03:02 - Genius 06:19 - American Gods 11:38 - Broadchurch 20:41 - Sense8 32:33 - The Leftovers 54:37 - Twin Peaks 63:59 - End Note: Re-uploaded on 27/07/2017



In the inaugural episode of What Is Good What Is On Netflix As We Speak your hosts Max and Michael discuss Billions, 13 Reasons Why and Legion with some level of ineptitude and touch lightly on The Strain, The Team, Ballers, Line of Duty, The Son, Guerrila, The Expanse and Rick and Morty. The episode is mostly free of spoilers although there are mild spoilers for episode 1 of 13 Reasons Why and Legion.
