Spoilers Ahoy

Scott “R’s Akimbo” Forrest and myself AKA the Film Corps return, albeit this time looking at the phenomena of small-screen blockbusters.

We look back the constant state of ‘event’ television from the US, charting its course from 24, via LostThe Walking DeadBattlestar GalacticaBoardwalk Empire and others up until the present day.

In this episode I, having watched very little event television, take the role of someone who has watched very little event television. Scott meanwhile, as someone who has seen rather a lot of event television, takes on the role of someone who has seen rather a lot of event television. It was frankly a nightmare working out who was going to be in which role.

So, with the dynamic established, we debate what makes Event Television, and what identifiers we can see from it, through our respective scopes of film director and film writer. Scott takes me through why I should dedicate a little more time to it, and I get angry that he doesn’t like season 2 of The Walking Dead.
