Recording Our Thoughts On Criminal Record

Episode 493,   Jan 10, 10:00 AM

Brandi Brown returns to discuss AppleTV+'s new British cop show!

AppleTV+'s latest very polished drama, Criminal Record, is about race and corruption in London's Metropolitan police force; Brandi Brown takes a break from cozy mysteries to discuss whether this copperganda is worth watching. Around The Dial takes us through Grimsburg, Julia, The Gilded Age (including a Tiny Triumph from Brandi), Break Point, and The Bob Newhart Show. Past guest Ilan pitches Shoresy's "Players Wanted" for induction into The Canon. Then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time about screens big and small. Make yourself a nice cup of tea and join us!
