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.

Sep 29, 2017

Hey Clinkers, it turns out Episode 69 was such a special endeavor on our parts that we had to break the thing up into two parts! So, you're welcome.

For the first time in Punch Drunk TV history, we brought a guest on (aside from our lovely wives) to join us in the television chaos. And for you old school Pass the Effin' Remote listeners, you know what that means: It's the return of Jack's favorite game segment, Guess the Premise! 

Coy Jandreau from Marvel Movie News and many acting things joins us, mostly to geek out about comic book things and spread some Lethal Weapon love. But as one would expect things get nutty pretty quickly...

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • “The Walking Dead” is now allowed to say “fuck.” That’s right! AMC has buckled and will allow two instances of the f-word each season of “The Walking Dead,” as well as “Fear the Walking Dead.”
  • HBO has officially ordered Damon Lindelof’s “Watchmen” series.
  • Joe and Anthony Russo are turning the Image Comics’ series “Deadly Class” into a TV show at Syfy. The story is a “coming of age journey set against the backdrop of late-’80s counterculture and follows a teen who gets recruited into a high school for assassins."
  • David Cronenberg's “Scanners” is being turned into a TV show. Lionsgate, Paramount and Skydance are all currently fighting to get the series.
  • Spike has canceled “The Mist” after one season.
  • The final six episodes of “Game of Thrones” will cost $15-million dollars each to make.
  • Apple TV is in the process of acquiring new original series to rival Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. One of the projects they have put a bid on is a modern version of Stephen Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories." If done right, it could be a huge win for the platform.

THE RETURN OF GUESS THE PREMISE: 
Coy and Jack pitched new ideas for FOX's "The Nice Girls," Showtime's "Kidding," Hulu's "Dawn," Gaumont Television's Stephen King adaptation, "8" and Lifetime's "A Midsummer's Nightmare"

Spoiler: Coy won...
