Hobo Radio 273 – This is the end?

Breaking Bad came to a close this past Sunday, racking up record-high ratings for its finale. While the majority of fans were satisfied with the finale, some critics complained that it was “too neat” and others went full-on conspiracy theory, claiming that the finale actually took place inside Walter White’s head.

Joel Murphy and Lars talk about the Breaking Bad finale (in vague terms, since Lars hasn’t actually seen it). They also discuss finales in general and their ability to retroactively change the way people feel about a TV show as a whole. They include the polarizing finales of The Sopranos and Lost in their discussion.

Is it time to cut Damon Lindelof a break? Why can’t people in Hollywood write good female characters? What’s the point of making an American remake of a British TV show if you are just going to hire the same British actor to play the part? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “I Don’t Know What to Do Anymore” by Ghost Children of Calico

Hobo Radio 258 – They’re single, ladies



If you have ever found yourself wondering why Joel Murphy and Lars are still single, no show has epitomized why the dynamic duo continue to live the bachelor life more than this week’s. They start by talking about their struggles with dating and their need to lose weight, then spend the rest of the time kvetching about the Writer’s Guild of America’s Top 101 Television Shows.

From skipping multivitamins to eating crap food, they continue to make bad choices with what they put into their bodies. And they continue to make bad choices in their romantic lives. But none of their choices are as bad as the WGAs television show rankings.

What’s the worst date Joel has ever been on? How does Lars really feel about Six Feet Under? Why does The Wire continue to be undervalued? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Walk On By” by Robin McKelle
