What Are We Watching? Podcast

The 'What Are We Watching?' podcast came about when Christian joined his 9 year old son Carlin, for a TV show he was watching. 30 minutes later, Carlin was just shaking his head after listening to his Dad interrupt with sarcastic quips every 5 seconds. Carlin just flatly looked at him and said, "you sure do have a lot of opinions about this show." BOOM! A podcast was born. Each episode, Carlin and Christian watch a new kid's TV show. Christian complains and lashes out, while Carlin tries to convince his old man that he's being.... well, an old man. As Our theme song asks: Who is right? Is it the son or the Dad? Either way you get to laugh knowing Christian is mad. So pull up a chair and get the corn a poppin'. Tune in for new episodes of 'What Are We Watching?'

This week Christian sits down with a special co-host, his daughter Mileena B., and they watch the PBS show 'Odd Squad'.

They also announce that they will be interviewing 'Odd Squad' star Millie Davis who plays Ms. O. in an upcoming episode.

Here's the description for the show: Young government agents Olive and Otto use math to investigate strange occurrences in their town. Produced by The Fred Rogers Co., this live-action series targets preschool and early elementary schoolchildren and their families. Odd Squad cases include disappearing zeroes, Santa's missing reindeer, runaway dinosaurs, and characters who escape from books. Throughout the series, Olive and Otto learn not only how to solve problems but also about working together, communication and perseverance.

The takeaway? Unlike many shows on the WAWW podcast, Christian LOVES this show... almost as much as his daughter Mileena.

This week we recap Disney's 'I Didn't Do It' and preview Nickelodeon's 'Henry Danger'.

Synopsis: Henry Hart is a 13-year-old boy who lives in the town of Swellview. He lands a part-time job as Kid Danger, a sidekick to the superhero well known in Swellview, Captain Man. Captain Man tells Henry not to tell anybody about his job, so he keeps it a secret from his best friends Charlotte (though she eventually learns the secret) and Jasper, his parents, and his younger sister Piper. Henry goes to a shop called "Junk 'n' Stuff", which has a secret lair hidden underneath where Captain Man does his work. Captain Man says he will not be around for long and needs help; soon enough, he will need someone to take his place when he is gone (meaning Henry will take over one day).

This week, Christian and Carlin watch Disney's 'I Didn't Do It'. Here's the show description:

"The series follows brother–sister twins Lindy and Logan Watson and their three best friends, Jasmine, Garrett, and Delia, as they begin their freshman year of high school at Ditka High. In the first season, each episode began with a comedic "what just happened" situation followed by the story being told in flashbacks. This concept was abandoned in the second season."

Carlin, of course loved the show, but Christian has his reservations. While there's a funny gag or two, it still operates in this magical land where adults don't seem to exist. WHY?!?!

This episode brought to you by http://Photography.com/PlaidDad15

This week, Christian and Carlin watch Nickelodeon's '100 Things To Do Before Highschool. Here's the show description:

"Three childhood best friends set off on a quest to make the best out of their final two years of middle school by making a list of 100 things to achieve before they set off to high school. Along with the list and help from their guidance counselor, they make it through the highs and the lows of middle school."

This show didn't fit the normal fare we've come to bemoan each week. For one thing, it lacked a laugh track. Although, there was a substitute.... check out the episode and our WAWW Checklist to see what we mean.

Also, Christian did NOT hate this show. Actually, he kinda' liked it. See what he and Carlin have to say and leave a comment below to be registered to win an Amazon, iTunes, or Nintendo Gift Card.

This week, Christian and Carlin are joined by their friend Duane, who is none too happy that he was forced to watch 'Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Doc.... errr... Dawn'.

As a Dad, it's bad enough watching your own kids act like spoiled, entitled, brats - but at least you can ground THEM. This episode of NRDD is all about the television and the control over the remote. We fought with ourselves for 22 minutes not to hit the power switch on ours.

So watch Carlin defend this dreck, and see if Christian can figure out the difference between Quadruplets and Quintuplets (here's a hint - he can't).

Thanks for watching. Leave a comment below you could win an Amazon, iTunes, or NintendoDS gift card.

Next week, we'll be watching Disney's 'Jessie'. Here's a show description:

"The series follows Jessie Prescott (Debby Ryan), a young woman from a small town with big dreams who, rebelling against her strict father, decides to leave the military base in Texas where she grew up and moves toNew York City. She accepts a job as a nanny and moves into a multimillion-dollar penthouse on the Upper West Side with the wealthy Ross family which includes jet-setting parents Morgan and Christina and their four rambunctious children: Emma Ross, Luke Ross, Ravi Ross, and Zuri Ross, along with the family pet, Mr. Kipling, a seven-foot Asian water monitor lizard, that was later revealed to be a female. With a whole new world of experiences open to her, Jessie embarks on new adventures in the big city as she grows to rely on the love and support of the children in her care. Assisting her are Bertram (Kevin Chamberlin), the family's lazy and sarcastic butler, and Tony (Chris Galya), the building's 20-year-old doorman."

Wow.

Expect our WAWW Show Checklist to ding at least three times based on that. Stay tuned next Wednesday for the full podcast. And don't forget to watch 'Jessie' S01E05 before you do. You can check it out here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1b7o1b_jessie-s01e05-one-day-wonders-480p_shortfilms
