The Graham Anderson Show 9.8.11

This is the most extensive Fall TV preview show that you are going to find anywhere on planet earth.  Dan Brown and I cover new shows (first 28 minutes), old shows(28:00 – 40:00), cable shows (40:00 – 45:00), and also provide our Emmy picks (45:00 – 1:00:00….seriously, we went for a full hour…).  Oh, so…remember when Dan Brown said he was going to get a tattoo on the inside of his arm of the Friday Night Lights tag line, “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose?”  Well, he actually did it.

The Graham Anderson Show 7.20.11

How are we all going to survive without Tim and Billy Riggins teaching us lessons about life?  The end of a beautiful era came to a close last week, and I wanted to make sure that we sent Friday Night Lights off with a fitting tribute.  Dan Brown, Lauren Schwendiman, Stuart Anderson, Jake Welch, and Brooke Hathaway join me to reminisce about their love affair with Coach Taylor and the Dillon Panthers (…and the East Dillon Lions…I guess…).

What is your favorite episode of all-time?  Which scene got you more emotional than any other in the history of the show?  Which season is your favorite?  Tami or Lyla?  Coach T or Riggins?  Send your thoughts to graham@grahamandersonshow.com or follow the conversation on my Facebook page.  http://www.facebook.com/grahamjohna

The Graham Anderson Show 6.20.11

Zack Morris (Mark Paul Gosselaar) is a worldwide icon…and Saved by the Bell was the show that defined a generation, my generation.  Why haven’t we seen the artist formerly known as Zack Morris on the silver screen?  Couldn’t you see him in a Jennifer Aniston rom-com?  Wouldn’t you go see that just to see him?  Why did he purely make made for TV movies in the 90s and 2000s?  This among other major TV topics discussed with a favorite of the podcast, Dan Brown, PhD (in TV).  Make sure to check out Dan’s blog: http://deebstv.tumblr.com/

The Graham Anderson Show 4.20.11

If it hasn’t been made clear yet, I love the American Southwest, just like Deangelo Vickers (new Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin – Scranton) and a well-known Utahn by the name of Philo T. Farnsworth (just the inventor of the television).  Dan Brown, TV guru/extraordinaire, is back by popular demand to talk Will Ferrell on The Office, Season 5 premiere of Friday Night Lights, Season Finale of Parenthood, and a few new shows that you aren’t going to want to miss.

The Graham Anderson Show 2.24.11

Huge shout-out to Utah native Philo T. Farnsworth for inventing the television.  Former NBC Page, current Daily Show Production Assistant, and TV connoisseur/expert, Dan Brown (please refrain from making ridiculous remarks about “The DaVinci Code”), stops by to talk about the absolute must-see TV currently on broadcast and cable.

 

The Graham Anderson Show 2.17.11

I really needed to get a few big topics off my chest so I went with a solo show…The Company Men, Friday Night Lights, The Bachelor, Carmelo Anthony, Tom Brady’s hair, Miami Heat, and Lance Armstrong just to name a few…Enjoy!
