Welcome to The Station Agents, a new joint production podcast from Pajiba and Warming Glow. Every episode Joanna, Dustin and Josh will be bringing you their weekly, cumulative ranking of the 10 best episodes on television. This is a (largely) spoiler-free way to pass an hour with your favorite overlords as they ramble about all the shows you love to watch and those you love to hate watch. You can find every episode of the podcast at and they will all be available soon on iTunes. Please shoot us an email at to let us know what you think of the show, to share a bit of TV news you think is worth discussing or to detail the way in which you're going to injure our pets for leaving your favorite show off the list.

Before you hit play, beware. Here be expletives, shoddy terrorist impressions and clown assassins.

  • James

    Where's Finbar McBride?? goddamm it!

  • I'm loving this. Listening right now. Will you be posting the new episodes here, too, or only on the Agents website?

  • JoannaRobinson

    Here too, every week!

  • Yay! This forgetful and, ok, lazy listener thanks you!

  • So this is good to see, great job! And thanks. As a person who watches very little television, and what I do watch is on-line and never when a show airs.

    I'm going to say, though, I found myself exposed to Parenthood and was left feeling all PJ Harvey (Is that all there is?): dry and unmoved. I wanted to take Mr Krause outside and perform a mercy killing, so he doesn't have to give that sanctimonious look anymore. Mostly I want to find where the writers are, and drag them out of their little room and into the world where real people exist.

    Best line: "Speedman is terrible." Thanks, DR!

  • Ian Fay

    Woot! Can't wait to listen.

    Could you please list the RSS link for us non-ITunes users, please? I see from the download link it's using Libsyn but it goes right to the file rather than the RSS feed.


  • JoannaRobinson

    Probably...yes...I can probably do that. :)

  • Ian Fay

    Yay! Those of us not beholden to the turtlenecked spectre of Steve Jobs thank you. :)

  • Let's be real, Nick is the reason I've watched New Girl since episode 3 of last season. Jake Johnson has fantastic chemistry with everyone he acts with (he even made No Strings Attached almost watchable).

    The only feedback I have is, I wish the podcast was shorter and pithier.

  • AM

    This was way too long and tedious. Maybe run through the rankings first, and then digress?

  • It doesn't matter how many times I've seen/heard "it is pronounced like vagina", I have always (AND WILL ALWAYS) said it as Pajeeba. I shall not be moved.

  • Idle Primate

    yep. pajeeba

  • denesteak

    you guys' voices totally don't sound like what I expected. I don't know what I expected, but you guys have great voices!

  • I'm totally paranoid the voices won't match the faces.

  • Three_nineteen

    So are there clowns that assassinate people, or people who assassinate clowns? This is an important distinction.

  • buell

    ummm...ummm...ummm.... lost count at 10...ummm...

  • JoannaRobinson

    You should do what I did when editing, take a drink for every "um." It will blow the top off your evening.

  • BWeaves

    Joanna, you have a damn sexy voice, and I'm a very heterosexual woman.

  • InternetMagpie


  • dizzylucy

    Love it!

  • John G.

    I love it, but I hope it doesn't interfere with next seasons A Cast of Kings

  • JoannaRobinson

    You underestimate my ability and willingness to talk about Peter Dinklage.

  • Yossarian

    Wow, Pajiba Podcast, this is the best thing ever!

    ...crap, how am I ever going to watch enough current television to know what the fuck is going on.

  • Yeah, I'm never caught up anymore since I live in London now. Nevertheless, this is amazing.

  • zeke_the_pig

    You mean I finally get to hear Dustin's voice?! I'm all a-flutter!

  • John G.

    Yeah, but it's just like the Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln. It's a voice you're not expecting.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Ho-lee shit. Dude, you are totally right. Dustin, man, I'm gonna be re-reading your Abduction review with your actual voice playing in my head. I think that's what your voice was born for.

  • AudioSuede

    Perfect analogy.

  • AudioSuede

    Yay! Pajiba podcast named after my third favorite Peter Dinklage role!

  • lowercase_ryan

    third favorite? really??

  • AudioSuede

    In order: Game of Thrones, Death At A Funeral, The Station Agent. Followed by The Baxter, Elf, 50 feet of crap, and then there's Narnia.

  • lowercase_ryan

    GOT I understand, but I think SA is two. imo.

  • Idle Primate

    pete smalls is dead, threshhold, nip/tuck, and tiptoes featured some awesome peter dinklage too.

  • lowercase_ryan

    what little bad dinklage there is I block out.

  • Idle Primate

    there probably isn't any bad dinklage. the guy needs more awards. they need to make a sequel to the Big Lebowski and have Dinklage partner up with our favorite slacker philip marlowe
