The Dorking Out Show

The show for anyone who loves to dork out about the stories in pop culture that we love. That means TV and movies, books and podcasts, and any other kind of engaging storytelling we can find. We talk about Star Wars and Gilmore Girls, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Trek, Netflix and Amazon, Serial and S-Town and, and, and... Every week noted TV critic and blogger Sonia Mansfield and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Allan Smith talk about movies, TV, books and more from both a fan and creator perspective. Think of it as a great conversation over drinks with your quick, clever friends who know about a lot.

Show Rundown: We look into our crystal ball to talk about what stories on TV we’re looking forward to and… it broke our crystal ball. There is so much damn TV a full fall preview is impossible. So we’re grabbing the brightest diamonds for you and we’ll talk about them with Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X. Then, Stephen Colbert’s first year on CBS’s Late Night Show has just closed. Did we lose one of our brightest comic voices even though he’s on TV every night? All of that, plus our favorite headlines of the week.
