Firewall & Iceberg, Episode 293: ‘Review,’ ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ & more


Happy Tuesday! It’s a Firewall & Iceberg Podcast on the usual day and with no technical issues!

Press tour starts today, but I’m not going for another week, and we were able to record this early enough to not interfere with Dan’s time at tour. We reviewed the return of “Review,” talked about Netflix’s “Wet Hot American Summer” prequel, checked in on “True Detective” (which, due to press tour, may be the last time we talk about it this season), and looked back on one of our favorite series finales ever.

The next podcast will be very listener mail-dependent, so please send us all the good questions you’ve been sitting on for months.

The rundown:

“Review” (00:00:55 – 00:08:40)

“Wet Hot American Summer” (00:08:40 – 00:20:30)

Listener Mail – Surprise TV (00:20:40 – 00:25:55)

Listener Mail – Blue Collar Comedy (00:26:00 – 00:34:00)

Listener Mail – “True Detective” (00:34:00 – 00:48:55)
