You know it’s a weird time in television when Tori, Dustin, and I are all watching three of the same shows!

But for whatever reason, the three of us all have managed to find common ground where normally we’d just be off in our own worlds.

Is it because there’s less new television right now? Or perhaps because Tori doesn’t have Kung Fu Corner to retreat to? In any event, three shows we all watched means three fairly long (for us) discussions of them, including:

- The first four episodes of the Rian Johnson created/Natasha Lyonne fronted Poker Face on Peacock, which we all enjoyed!

- The first two episodes of the new Bill Lawrence/Jason Segel/Brett Goldstein show Shrinking on AppleTV, which we all also enjoyed (side note: not sure if anyone remembers, but all the way back in 2012 Bill Lawrence had a pilot called Like Father. I was bummed when that didn’t get picked up to the series, and this show feels like it has some bits of that DNA floating around in it.)!

- The third episode of The Last Of Us, which we all enjoyed even though there might be others who feel differently and that’s OK!

Also, Dustin came up with a quick game for us to play at the end, which is perhaps the only way that we can play a game in which Dustin does not cheat! (#Dustincheats)

Podjiba! The only television podcast (as far as we know) where all the hosts knowing about every single show is a weird novelty instead of, you know, standard operating procedure, is found generally wherever podcasts are found, including below!
