#8 – The Thing About Pam
The one with Yahoo! Screen.
You’ve got questions about The Thing About Pam and we’ve got… even more questions! Those questions include:
- Are we terrible people for slurping down every second of this show like it’s a giant generic fountain soda in the clutches of Renée Zellweger‘s fat-suit-clad hands?
- How should we feel about the complicated ethics of a show— based on a podcast based on an episode of Dateline— that treats the real-life murder at the center of the story like the punchline of a joke?
- And do the tonal similarities to Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber mean that Renée Zellweger is the Joseph Gordon-Levitt of network television??
Listen in as we grapple with these existential questions, catch up on the latest streaming news, and ponder the future of TV shows based on video games. Plus: There’s a new comedy streaming on… Grindr? Sure, why not!
