Episode 95: (The Turn of the 19th Century) Fifth Annual Fall TV Preview

Summer is firmly in the rear-view mirror and that can mean only one thing: your Scope hosts return from months of tanning, working on their mono-abs, and recreating LFO’s “Summer Girls” music video to get back on the podcasting horse, as it be.

The return is both epic and important in nature. New TV is coming to a, well, TV near you. That means Jared, Adam, Shane, as well as special guest, Scooter, get together and break down all of the new programming choices.

The two takeaways: Far too many new legal shows are coming your way and Scooter is an expert with awkward phone pauses. (Oh, and for all of you Molly lovers: we tried to get her on the show but she was too busy “working at her job trying to earn a living.” Sheesh.)

The gang also tackles the usual bits with their usual pseudo-vigor and actual indifference. But it can’t stop the one undeniable fact:  The Scope is back and there is nothing you can do to stop it.

Unless you pay money. Lots of it. (Okay, not lots. Some.)

The Scope Episode #95 wants to be your Ping buddy.

    Wondring WHY you are just simply curious about Olivia Munn? Modern Family is good but you totally missed Parenthood – which is a GREAT show for us mid-30’s people happy we missed/mis-understood “thirtysomething”.

    “Outsourced” actually seems funny! I really don’t think it’ll be the first cancelled.

    “The EVENT” advert campaign is simply pissing me off and turning me off to EVER wanting to see the show. Much like why I was turned off to “Jericho”; amongst others.

    Olivia Munn is pretty, likes good stuff, and will talk in interviews about how she likes to get fucked (and uses the term “get fucked”).

    She’s neat.

    Parenthood did nothing for me last season, except make me wish the plane I was on while watching it would crash so I didn’t have to keep watching it. I’m sure it got better from the first couple episodes, but it turned me off enough to never want to watch it again.

    The wife and I liked Parenthood…but not enough to watch it immediately. We’re about 6 episodes behind (and it starts up next week!)

    I agree on Outsourced. It has a decent enough timeslot that NBC will give it decent shot.
