Show Notes

  • Intro Clip: sense8, I Can’t Leave Her [1×12]
  • Dave and Steve were harder on the Daredevil than they were sense8, despite the fact that they loved the former and thought the later was dumb at points.
  • Dave and Steve do not, in fact, talk about matrices.
  • sense8 makes Steven sound tired.
  • The concept of being born again, again is confusing to Steven.
  • Dave and Steve disagree on the basic plot of the show. Good sign.
  • Dave says “all three of them”. Reminder: there are eight main characters on the show.
  • Dave peer pressures Steve.
  • Spain and Mexico are nowhere near each other, Steve. You’re thinking Latin America.
  • Steve doesn’t quite admit to liking Bollywood.
  • Because Dave and Steve are terrible with names, they end up referring to people based on their nationality.
  • Steve makes a dope Heroes reference.
  • Dave thinks the next season will take place entirely on a boat.
  • Dave and Steve have this habit of discussing all the characters in a show as a way of discussing the show itself.
  • Steve makes a dope Weezer reference.
  • Writing is never fun and sexy to watch.
  • Dave is racist against The Matrix Reloaded.
  • Dave suggests that Mexico is not a part of North America and then immediately corrects himself.
  • “Bug ex machina”, Steve? Really?
  • Dave makes an even worse joke than “bug ex machina”. Maybe.
  • Dave is offended because he can’t pronounce Eyjafjallaj√∂kull.
  • Sex makes Steve uncomfortable.
  • Dave and Steve talk about that at length.
  • In case anyone needs this.
  • How many limbs does an orgy make?
  • Dave’s German accent isn’t going to win any awards.
  • Behind Dave’s cheerful demeanour is the capacity to shoot someone in the face many, many times.
  • That moment where you realize that Dave’s terrible jokes are actually just memory techniques.
  • Nobody should let Dave write television shows. Or do accents.
