Welcome to Punch Drunk TV, where your intrepid hosts Jack Conway and Aaron Pruner navigate the often tumultuous Peak TV landscape -- one drink at a time.

Aug 19, 2016

It's Friday so that means there's a 50/50 shot that a new Punch Drunk TV is ready for your listening pleasure. And you're in luck as this is the right Friday for you! Jack and Aaron talk about their trip to last weekend's Power Morphicon and, interestingly enough, virtual reality comes up a lot in this episode. Get ready to be jacked in!

But first, the news:

Hulu is adapting Marvel's "Runaways" to a series with "Gossip Girl" creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage behind the project. Here's hoping it's good because all of CWs shows will be leaving Hulu soon as their streaming deal has ended. Netflix will have the new episodes for each CW show available 8 days after their respective season finales end. Welp, there's always CWTV.com ...

Speaking of The CW, we discuss the pending "Supergirl"/"The Flash" musical crossover and the rumor that Joss Whedon may direct the two episodes. Also, the network canned their "Friday the 13th" series as the idea wasn't "sustainable." Fear not genre fans, a new "Lost Boys" series is in the works from Rob Thomas -- the creator of "Veronica Mars" and "iZombie."

Also, "The Nightly Show" was canceled, because of course it was. At least we can celebrate Brendan Dassey's release from prison ... right?

AARON’S LOSERS: "Emeril Lagasse’s Eat the World" and "Chelsea"

JACK’S LOSER: "The Wine Show"

AARON’S FENCERS: "The Get Down" and "Mr. Robot"

JACK’S FENCERS: "The Daily Show," "Casual," The Triumph Summer Election Special"

AARON’S WINNERS: "60 Days In," "Bojack Horseman," "Vice Principals" and "The Night Of"

JACK’S WINNERS: "BoJack Horseman," "Regular Show" and "Murder She Wrote” (Season 10, Episode 5 - "A Virtual Murder")
