The Toy Department – Episode 150


In Episode 150, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky cruise past a hiccup — or, more accurately, a giggle-cough — at the start to cover:

  • The Lifetime docu-series Surviving R. Kelly (1:45), which Madden watched and about which he gives an impassioned address to both Kolsky and the audience…
  • Top Chef’s Restaurant Wars episodes (13:15) and how the show continues to be wildly entertaining, the peak of reality television…
  • A wrap-up of Escape At Dannemora (30:20) and whether it has enough to it to be a really good show…
  • The award-winning film The Favourite (38:35) and the guys’ mildly differing opinions on how well it pulls off a satirical look at England of old…
  • Some quick thoughts on the Golden Globes (47:45) and their predictably bizarre results…
  • A check-in on the NFL playoffs (53:35) after a Wild Card weekend that left Kolsky near tears, a look forward to the Divisional Round and some thoughts on team-building…
  • Homework for next week (1:18:40), including: watching more NFL Playoffs, the return of You’re the Worst on FX, season two of Friends from College on Netflix and season three of True Detective on HBO…
