Exhibit 38: BOY MEETS WORLD
Aug 27 2018 41 mins  
Wandering down this [podcast] we call life...it's good to know I have [listeners] who will always stand by me... Well, we hope you'll stand by us as we roll back to the peak of the 90s, with TGIF stalwart Boy Meets World. We watched child actors actually age gracefully while tackling a plethora of "very special" issues in a way only a 22-minute family-friendly sitcom can. Were we charmed by this particular boy and his world? Who comes out on top in the battle of the Savage wunkerkinds? Can we see beyond the "curtain" haircuts and mom (and dad!) jeans to appreciate this listener favorite? If you want a deep dive into the Boy Meets World, er, world, check these out: Uproxx's oral history of BMW "Dark secrets" of BMW Rider Strong's 2008 Obama ad Rider Strong's Literary Disco Podcast If you enjoy this and other exhibits, be a patron at www.patreon.com/tvmuseum.

Exhibit 36: FAWLTY TOWERS
Jul 30 2018 48 mins  
If you like British comedy, we've got a classic this week that's quite the ticket. We'll take a close look at Watery Fowls -- er, Fawlty Towers -- the show deemed the greatest of all time by the British Film Institute. Will this 70s television treasure still shine today? Can the operatic virtuosity of Cleese and company overcome Hannah's antipathy for farce? Will Jeffrey talk at length about Monty Python? Tune in to learn more about the charms of Torquay, the peculiar British tradition of video in/film out, and where you can experience the glamour of dinner à la Fawlty. But whatever you do, just don't mention the war. Learn More!
