The Water Cooler Gang looks at the Big Little Lies finale and debates its Emmy chances. Plus, Megan drops a new ADTV Pop Quiz.
This week at the Water Cooler, TV Tidbits kicks us off with a deep dive into last night’s Big Little Lies finale. Did the acclaimed series stick the landing? How does David E. Kelley’s adaption of Liane Moriarity’s novel rate? We talk about these things plus a final evaluation of its Emmy chances. Speaking of Emmys we look at the updates to the Awards Daily TV Emmy Tracker. We plan to revisit our Emmy forecast every few weeks, and this is our first opportunity to do so. Then, Clarence walks back his discussion about last week’s Bates Motel entry and is yet again reminded why you wait to see an entire story arc before making judgments. Finally, the trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT dropped. Did IT do IT for us?
For our main segment, it’s been a minute since we’ve had a quiz show. In the spirit of fierce competition, Megan devised a fiendish Water Cooler TV Quiz for Joey and Clarence. This week’s topic, in honor of the Big Little Lies finale, deals with book-to-TV adaptations.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
Remember April 24 marks the Water Cooler Book Club reads Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Thanks for listening and thank you, in advance, for subscribing and rating us on iTunes!
