Getting Knicked

For our discussion of Cinemax's new Steven Soderbergh/Clive Owen drama, we invited Alan Sepinwall to join us, because who better than a man who's seen seven episodes?

Alan Sepinwall joins us for his first-ever full episode of the podcast for a discussion of The Knick! After Face Off correspondent Olivia Kwan updates us on Episode 3, we go around the dial with Outlander, Dirk Gently, Amy Pascale’s new Joss Whedon biography, and Extreme Guide To Parenting. Sarah shares a couple of recent Tiny Triumphs, Tara tells us why We Are All Domer for knowing anything at all about Under The Dome, Alan presents the Cheers episode “Endless Slumper” for submission into The Canon. Then it’s on to the week’s Winner and Loser and a musical Game Time. Dip your beard in some water and scrub in!
