This is my favorite podcast (Don’t tell the others)

Kevin, Wendy and Brent do an amazing job of covering the ever expanding genre world of television. Always the first with news in their comprehensive segment and I really enjoy the Spoiler free reviews that let me know if a show is worth checking out.I have listened for years and will keep on as long as they keep recording. Try it won’t you?

Genre TV catchers

These two guys and a gal gather genre shows into one podcast like a good appetizer sampler plate. I've found new shows thanks to their suggestions, and keep up with returning shows.

Fun Consistent Quality

I must have been listening to this show for at least two years now and it is my go to companion for my TV viewing year. One of the things I appreciate about it over some other sci-fi fan podcasts is that it stays civil and they really understand the diversity of expectations and personalities of the viewers will lead to different tastes and therefore different judgements. In other words disagreements are always civil. All three hosts watch with a critical eye and I don’t mean that they criticize everything; what they do is a critique with reason behind each judgement. You won’t get the “it was boring” type of comment, instead they will give actual reasons why they find something compelling or not. Sometimes I feel like listening to their show during my busy work is like a re-watch of my favorite episodes. Also it comes in handy to understand what is going on with shows I decided to stop watching so even if a show is not on my viewing schedule, I keep abreast of what is going on in genre entertainment; I can actually be informed about the shows I’m not watching so I can understand more geek culture references and be part of more conversations. Keep up the good work and congrats on your upcoming milestone guys!

Great for genre fans!

As a genre TV fan, I really enjoy this podcast. The podcast episodes are divided up into two sections The Watercooler and The Back Porch. The Watercooler features quick reviews of episodes that aired within the last week, news items, and discussion of a "tuner minute" topic of the week. The Back Porch features some more in depth discussion of 2-3 shows. I don't watch nearly the number of shows that Kevin, Wendy, and Brent do, so I often don't listen past the "Watercooler" section of the show but I really this section and it's the bulk of the episode. I like hearing the quick reviews to give me a sense of whether starting to watch a new show might be worth is, and I appreciate that they stay on top of news items related to genre TV. And I actually really enjoy the discussions of the "Tuner Minute" question of the week. I've called in a few times to add my two cents to the discussion.

Detailed

I like that enough details are provided that I can choose to watch a show or ignore it. It's comprehensive and entertaining.

Find new stuff from them

Because they discuss many sci-fi, fantasy, horror shows, I'm kept up to date, and I find out if a show is worth my time. Because of them I found Orphan Black. Good job, team!

Genre to the Max

Tuning in to SciFi TV is a weekly Genre TV show discussion podcast. The cast is Wendy Hembrock, Brent Barrett, and Kevin Bachelder (AKA the Mark Sheppard of Podcasting). The program starts with the water cooler segment that is a quick rating of the weekly SciFi, Fantasy and other genre television shows. The ratings are Watch It Now, Watch It Soon, Watch It Later, Let it Sit or Skip it. Then they have a news segment followed by the Back Porch, an in depth Discussion of select shows. They have a supplemental podcast called The Last Call which includes discussions of shows they did not cover in the Back Porch. All and all it is a fun show.

A fantastic listen!

Week after week Keving brings his passion of sci-fi films to the ears of many listeners. It's always very fun to listen to and Kevin (and guests, when he has them on) are as good as they come.

Fun and informative

Entertaining discussions and ratings of new sci-fi TV shows, initially without spoilers and later more discussions with spoilers. Separate podcasts to discuss B-movies are a bonus, plus polls on top sci-fi shows, top sci-fi characters, counted down with audio clips. Best show of it's kind I know.
