Making Mushroom For The Last Of Us

Episode 442,   Jan 18, 2023, 10:00 AM

Omar Gallaga returns to talk about HBO's new video game-inspired drama!

Chernobyl's Craig Mazin has teamed with Neil Druckman, creator of the video game The Last Of Us, to adapt said game as a post-apocalyptic drama series; Omar Gallaga is here to discuss the series premiere! Around The Dial takes us through MILF Manor (a real show, not a 30 Rock gag); Alice In Borderland, a whole pile of Nordic crime dramas, and the British true crime period piece Stonehouse. Omar pitches South Side's S01.E03: Turner Buys A Building, for induction into the Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Non-Regulation Game Time that stays too long at the party. Put your car battery somewhere safe and join us!
