The Pro Moment – The Golden Age of Television. TV Shows That Push the Envelope. What are Your Favorites? – 8.25.15

Today we talked about how we’re living in the Golden Age of TV, I told an embarrassing story about the Abbott and Costello sketch, “Who’s on First?” and I admitted that I don’t really like Game of Thrones. Counting down some of the shows that you thought pushed the limits of TV are:

5. The Sopranos

4. 24

3. Lost

2. Mad Men

1. Breaking Bad

When Mike first pitched, “The Golden Age of Television. Favorite Shows, Unique Channels, Pushing the Envelope, you tell me!” I was hesitant because I didn’t know what he meant about unique channels.  However after talking about it I realized that he meant channels like the CW who went from mostly teen angst shows about vampires to mostly DC Comics shows in the last five years.

I compared the Golden Age of TV to the Golden Age of Comedy which reminded me about the time that my brother and I did the Abbott and Costello sketch, “Who’s on First?” at our school’s talent show and my brother was so nervous that he never looked up. To be fair I was around ten and he was seven.

 

The video has that story and a lot more.  Thank you all for all the questions!  Tweet at me if you want to continue the conversation or you have ideas for tomorrow’s episode!
