Episode 135 – Discussing Television As Film Part 1

On this week’s episode, we’re inviting Craig Simpson to talk about how the medium of television is becoming more and more respected as a great storytelling medium.

We start out with What Have You Seen Lately, covering Frances Ha, and Man Of Steel.

We then discuss Television as Film. We cover how the medium has changed over time, try to identify the series that started the trend, and give examples of great storytelling in television.

Please note, we did not learn about James Gandolfini’s death until after this episode was recorded.
