The Small Screen Podcast Episode 9: Is the new season looking GRIMM?

As part of the new partnership with Too Interesting For Twitter, I’m proud to introduce The Small Screen Podcast to the readers of Napier’s News! What is The Small Screen Podcast? It’s a weekly chat about all the latest things going on in the TV world – TV news, what we’re watching, what we’re looking forward, and anything else TV-related that’s worth a mention! Who are “we” – the hosts? I’m Kristal Bailey, writer at Too Interesting For Twitter, GeekTyrant, and West Coast Managing Editor of this very site! I love television and am so glad to talk about it every week with my co-host, Marcos Canales. There were lots of new season pick-ups, and one last series premiere – GRIMM. We also talk about Chuck’s season debut and which of the many new shows we think is the most promising. Check the full breakdown in case you need to avoid spoilers.

With a soft spot for movies that fall into the “So Bad They’re Good” category, Kristal Bailey regularly watches B-movies, 80s comedies, and sci-fi from the 50s and 60s. She also refuses to grow up if that means she has to hide her love for Disney and Pixar films.

In her free time, she enjoys reading graphic novels or books that are soon to be turned into movies, watching hours and hours of television, and spending way too much time on Twitter.
