The Water Cooler Gang welcomes Jazz Tangcay to the podcast to discuss Feud: Bette and Joan, the 2017 Emmys, and other hot topics.
This week at the Water Cooler, we try to put aside our barely contained personal differences. We invite Jazz Tangcay to mediate our discussion of FX and Ryan Murphy’s Feud, a new anthology series which kicks things off with Feud: Bette and Joan. This freshman installment details the long-running feud between Oscar winners Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) in the What Ever Happened to Baby Jane era. We reveal our initial thoughts of the series and discuss how deeply we think Emmy will embrace it.
But before that, we kick things off with our weekly TV Tidbits segment. We dish a recent controversial episode of Girls and ask the question, “Does the series matter in its final season?” We then survey the 2017 Emmy landscape, Jazz’s lunch with Emmy-hungry celebs, and Westworld’s place in the Emmy conversation. Finally, we chat about the recently announced future installment of Feud.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
