Is it possible to reach both the correct and incorrect result at the same time?

I ask because we’ve come to the conclusion of Podjiba’s 2023 Fiscal First Quarter Categorization Challenge, and our streaming show champion is none other than the hilarious, heartbreaking show we all love, Reservation Dogs, which completed a truly amazing run through the tournament, sweeping every single rival in its path, even in the finals against Ted Lasso.

Clearly, the correct result.

However, in an effort to I dunno, punish me or whatever, our champion, Tori, decided to assign season 1 of The Umbrella Academy for our July rewatch, despite my earlier protests that I “would never watch the show” after it somehow defeated Andor in the first round.

Whether or not I will enjoy the show is irrelevant here. This is now a matter of integrity.

On the other hand, it’s not like I have an abundance of that, so anyway, The Umbrella Academy, season 1 in July.

And congratulations again to Reservation Dogs, which might never win an Emmy (for some insane reason), but did win the 2023 FFQCC to be crowned the best streaming show of all time as decided by three randos on a podcast.

In the rest of the week’s TV talk:

- Dustin caught us up on a couple of new Netflix shows, Unstable and The Night Agent, as well as Hulu’s Unprisoned!

- We talked through two Apple TV+ comedies: last week’s Ted Lasso, and the premiere of The Big Door Prize!

- We got to our weekly prestige dramas, Succession and Yellowjackets!

- Other random things, like talking about 90s music for some reason!

Podjiba! The only television podcast (that we know of) where one of the hosts will watch The Umbrella Academy in July only with strong objections to the process which led us here, is available generally wherever podcasts are found, including below!
