Should You Subscribe To Alaska Daily?

Danny MacEachern assesses the Hilary Swank vehicle's journalisming, plus a Taskmaster for the Canon and a novel Game Time!

Canadian journalist Danny MacEachern is back to take a look at the frustrating, but also maaaaybe promising, Alaska Daily, which spends a good half of its first episode giving us unnecessary backstory and throwing around phrases like “woke wussies” before finally getting into the real story. We discussed star Hilary Swank’s wigs, why a network version of this show is never going to center the Indigenous people at the center of the mystery, whether we can expect the show to settle down and get better, and which other properties listeners should opt for instead. Sarah was Not A Crackpot about dangerous TV driving, and we went Around The Dial with The Real Love Boat, Reboot, a Werewolf By Night update from Dave, and a report on The Winchesters from foreign Supernatural correspondent Mlle. Caroline. Kitt (not the car) tried to get the egg of a Taskmaster episode through the hoop that is the Canon, and after we declared a Winner and Loser, we read TV books for filth in a non-regulation Game Time from Sarah. Borrow a sleep mask from a co-worker, because it’s time for an all-new Extra Hot Great.
