Dorking Out #X3: Let’s talk about our comfort movies and TV shows

1 Comment

Yeah, so, Smith and I chatted for quite a bit about whether or not to record our podcast this week. We are very sad about the tragic event in Orlando, in which some asshole killed 49 people in a gay nightclub before the police busted in and killed him. It’s yet another shooting spree that is sadly becoming so common.


Ultimately, we decided that the show must go on. We just really wanted to talk about it. So, we talk about it. We talk about how we process tragic events, which leads into a good discussion about our comfort movies and TV shows. What do you watch when you need something to make you feel better? You’ll have to listen to hear our list, but I’ll give you a hint about one of my picks.


We also run down some of the more interesting headlines of the week, including a possible revival of “The Shield” on FX, the return of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and the possibility of a “Battlestar Galactica movie reboot.

We end the show with our new segment, “Why Should I Listen To You,” in which we share one of our favorite movies or TV shows. This week, we shared our TV picks. Smith talks about why he loves “Cheers” so much, and I talk about “Homicide: Life On The Street,” because David Simon is rad.

You can find all things Dorking Out on our website, We’ve even got a newsletter that you can sign up for. Oh la la. We’re so dorky fancy.

You can listen to it here, or you can find us on iTunes and SoundCloud.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
