Episode 113: The Cooler Gang flashes back to all three seasons of Netflix’s Black Mirror, predicts the 2017 Oscar noms, and gushes over SNL’s Kate McKinnon.
This week at the Water Cooler, we’re trying on a new hat. No, it’s not a pussy power hat (although Megan wore one of those this weekend). Instead, we put on our Oscar prognostication hats, predicting the major races in advance of tomorrow’s 2017 Oscar nominations. Then, with our latest Water Cooler Flashback segment, we dive into all three seasons of the highly addictive and often terrifying Netflix British import Black Mirror. Which episodes worked best? Which episodes felt repetitive? What are our very favorite Black Mirror episodes over all three seasons? Sit back, relax, and try not to focus on how we’re watching you listen to this right now…
And how about Emmy-winner Kate McKinnon’s fantastic Chicago-inspired “Conway” number from the uniformly great Aziz Ansari-led Saturday Night Live? Is she headed for another Emmy?
As always, we close with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week. As a reminder, the Water Cooler Podcast book club kicks off on the February 13 edition with Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, which will become a major HBO limited series starting February 19.
