TV takes a break in the US, but Tom’s still checking in on The Shield and Lamarr’s getting into Cosmos, so we review the series so far.
Lamarr reports on his personal chicken challenge, Amazon looks desperate about Fire TV, and Netflix has two very different ideas for new series.
Cosmos proves divisive, Game of Thrones mostly pleases, Godzilla stomps through a classic and The Shield is a riot.
01:12 – Cosmos
11:26 – Game of Thrones
24:18 – Godzilla
42:58 – The Shield (Ep. 12)
YouTube might buy Twitch. ATT definitely wants to buy DirecTV. What does this mean for cord-cutters. There is some good news in there.
Was Cosmos electric or did it short out? Game of Thrones gets more thrones, less game, Her impresses Brian and The Shield gets a good formula.
Ratings for online shows is complicated and almost nobody gets everything they want out of it except the ratings company. Also why net neutrality matters to Cord-cutters.
Cosmos gets to the bottom of humanity, Game of Thrones makes Cersei different suddenly, and The Shield confuses Tom a little.
Hulu’s letting more folks watch shows on mobile without paying. Is that a good thing? Also AOL and Nielsen are teaming up to save Internet TV.
