Episodes

OH just spin off Marsha Shandur  

Marsha lives in Canada. She is from England. She is many other things too. An ex radio presenter, the person who picked most of the music for The Inbetweeners TV show, an activist (though she claimed to be a lazy one), and a general all-round thinker. Hywel and Marsha chew the creative kale from their perspectives of life as media / creative types.

Gilmore Girls 2 - Revival Review  

The new Gilmore Girls has been released on Netflix and fans Hywel and Mel had to do a special podcast reacting to the four films - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. What's the transatlantic difference in reaction, and how do the fans reviews hold up to review?!

The West Wing Retrospective Spoiler Edition - Discuss  

In times like these the idea of an informed liberal elite running the White House may seem a lot less realistic than when the West wing was originally released. One of hywel and guest Mathew Wandless' favourite box sets, time to look back over it and remove the rose tinted spectacles to see if it stands up.

Dexter Revisited, A SPOILER SPECIAL - Discuss  

Hywel and work experience boy Jack (normally confined to six words per podcast) discuss the whole of Dexter having finished it all. If Dexter's boat had as many holes in it as this series, would it float? And why do we love it sooooo much.

Spoiling the Gilmore Girls - Discuss  

A day before the election, and (more importantly) 20 or so days before the new episodes arrive on Netflix, Gilmore fans Hywel and Mel talk about the Gilmore girls alone. This podcast is a SPOILER of the entire 7 series of GM. Be very very warned.

Creative Kale - Walt Disney World's retired Vice President Lee Cockerell  

Lee Cockerell used to be the Vice President of Walt Disney World Resort. He joins Hywel to continue Hywel's search into the world of 'creative management'. Where better for Hywel to find answers than perhaps the most qualified 'manager' from a world that has been highly successful AND creative than his favourite topic - Disney.

Getting in Luke's Cage  

Luke Cage, the latest Netflix Marvel offering, is impressing fans across the world. Great ratings and reviews. How will it go down with less die-hard fans. Find out as we enter the Box Set Pod...

Get down with The Get Down  

Netflix' most expensive series, possibly the most expensive series in TV history, is an epic and unusual mix of Baz Luhran's world of the hyper-real musical with the story of the beginnings of Hip Hop in 1970's New York. How does the mix go down with first-time watchers, and should you invest time in this epic?

Community with Chubby Chase  

Hywel and Jamie with guests Mel, Mat, and Jack (who has the flu) talk all about cult / hit comedy COMMUNITY. An odd, surprising comedy which maybe holds more than Hywel and Jamie think on viewing first episode. Is it a community worth joining for you?

Outside the Box (set pod) - Creative Kale! With Justin Lee Collins  

Episode 2 of Hywel's Box Set Pod Spin-Off called 'Creative Kale'. This week, Justin Lee Collins talks about the inner workings of making big, yet silly, TV shows...

The night of 'The Night Of'  

'The Night Of' is a new series splitting the audience in half. Is it worth the investment of your time? Find out different perspectives with the passionate folk of the box set pod with special guest and huge John Turtorro fan Russell Gomer.

Outside the Box (set pod) - Creative Kale!  

Hywel has decided to explore the mind of the creatively challenged. Joining him for podcast number one, of this Box Set Pod spin off (potential spoilers and bad language), is Michael Mayers. A genius of Photography Direction, check out his work at http://www.michaelmayers.com He's made things you've watched look great, and made a career out of it. How has it worked for him?

Do you Daredevil?  

Daredevil is one of the darkest offerings from the Marvel universe and you may have been recommended it or seen it pass by on Netflix. Work experience boy Jack has watched episode one, others have watched it all, can he be persuaded to continue? And can you be persuaded to begin?

Nurse Jackie - a pill worth swallowing?l  

Nurse Jackie, staring Mrs Soprano, is a box set now in its seventh series! Hywel and Jamie watch episode 1 for you, and fan Mat discussed their thoughts and whether its worth continuing on this big operation of a show.

Gotham.  Just another comic book series?  

The latest Box Set news from TV world, and then in the box set court, three people discuss the first episode of Gotham and whether or not they should carry on, with one person who's watched them all. Gotham, Hywel realises, is different from the rest because it's less... 'different'.

Stranger Than Fargo?  

After wrapping up Stranger Things with work experience boy Jack - who, rumour has it, didn't warm to it!!!! - regular box set pod discussioneers Matt and Mel join Hywel and Jamie to discuss FARGO. They've watched 1 episode, will they continue? Oh, and Jamie gets wound up about Ghostbusters after Hywel LOVED it.

Stranger Things including Justin Lee Collins  

Justin Lee Collins, big fan of the 80's, joins to talk about Stranger Things, the phenomenon, as well as why he hasn't watched Game Of Thrones yet... Box set regulars join, but will anyone have actually not watched it (Stranger Things) yet? And if you haven't, can we persuade you to join the boat before you give up because EVERYONE is telling you watch it and you feel like a left out loser.

Is it just for Gilmore Girls?  

The Box Set Pod returns after a short summer break... One of the hosts has serious jet lag, which means a great deal of TV and other nonsense is discussed before finally reaching the subject of The Gilmore Girls.

Judge Mike Judge('s Silicon Valley)  

Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge is behind Silicon Valley, a comedy about... Silicon Valley. What do the panel think on first watch of Episode One? Comedian Christian Talbot and Mel from chucktv.net join Hywel and Jamie to discuss.

Put a Zombie in Your Eye  

Stand up comic and izombie fan joins Hywel and Jamie to persuade them to watch more than one episode of the zombie teen series... Plus Jamie's made a top ten Box Sets from just the first 6 months of 2016.
