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.

Jan 26, 2018

In Episode 83, we're talking the delightful aroma of American Crime Story star Darren Criss and the awful scent of bad dates. 

Seriously, though, we have a lot to discuss. From a wonderful new food series on Netflix to Lifetime's trainwreck of a Corey Haim/Corey Feldman biopic to a surprise series that has prompted Jack to keep his Starz subscription, we end up talking a lot. Not to mention, Aaron hasn't left the house in a few days -- so he's hopped up on sugar and whiskey.

We are now on Google Play, Player.FM and Spotify. So come find us. And if you're listening to us on iTunes, welcome! Please give us a review while you're there!

Now, without further ado...


  • FX ordered a "What We Do In the Shadows" series from Taika Waititi & Jemaine Clement.
