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.

Apr 28, 2017

Every time we attempt a shorter episode, Punch Drunk TV just gets longer. So, for those out there irked by episodes that last over two hours -- we thank you for taking any time to listen, even if it's not for the entirety of the episode.

Aaron got to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 early which caused us to record the show at a later hour on a different night of the week. So, it's an odd episode -- but we also break down what this pending WGA strike may mean to the current television slate and your favorite shows returning this fall.

Finally, did you like 13 Reasons Why? Please tell us why at our Twitter or Facebook. Inquiring minds and all that...
