As a member of society, you may or may not be subject to this dark time in television, as Game of Thrones is back on television and winter is here. We are dutifully recapping Game of Thrones over at our other podcast, Our Watch Has Ended, but in the interest of Alternative Content, we are here today to recommend content that scratches Game of Thrones' various itches. We cover themes such as Strong Sexual Content, Violence, House/Palace Intrigue, Unlikable Characters, and more! Find out which show we labled as the Hatewatch Superbowl, see how we justify talking about our faves for the millionth time in a new context, listen to Kirstie and Kelsey congratulate each other repeatedly for accomplishing the goal of episode format, and revel in the moment when Kirstie has to tell Kelsey she was right. From Westeros to Aldovia, there's some beef stew for everyone in this episode y'all.

It's that time of year where we look at the television landscape, put on our best White Savior Doctor lab coats and say, "How can I help?" We entered our third Pilot Palooza with a lot of hopes and dreams, and as it turned out nothing was our shit. After getting our squirrel on with this year's batch of shows, we may just need a montage to Coldplay's Fix You, a time machine, or a collection of tiny boxes which spark joy. We watched New Amsterdam, Timeless, Glow, Sharp Objects, Vida, Killing Eve, and checked in briefly with Last Man Standing, play a quick round of Hot Or Tall, talk about a lot of other shows we would have rather been watching that weren't on the list, and nominate this year's Downward Dog because as always our heros have failed us. Let us know if there are any pilots we missed in 2018, and let us know throughout 2019 what shows you'll want us to watch!

Like the mustache on a young hero's face or the thunder in one's pants, we have arrived once again at the end of another season of Outlander. Join us as we trade our gloats and gripes for the season and try to come to terms with challenging ideas such as actual human emotions, facial expressions, drawing, and sad tent sex. Joy was sparked, rage was raged, and the Strong Sexual Content was the Actually Just Normal Feelings We Felt About Sam Heughan's Face along the way. If you want to see us follow up on the very important Outlander thesis presented in this episode, enter us in the Sam Heughan Charity Crossfit Contest this holiday season: https://www.omaze.com/experiences/sam-heughan-date-night
Pilot Palooza coming next week, we swear!

Droughtlander is over folks! We are binding off the season premier of Outlander and we're kicking it off with our greatest hits: Sam Heughan's tight white pants, tricorns, Starz market research, Sam Heughan market research, and heated debates about the quality of boning. We'll check in again formally at midseason, but look forward to every episode for the next 13 weeks being an Outlander episode!

If you’ve ever wondered how long it takes to travel the King’s Road by horse, highlander, or dragon, or if you’d like to know the difference between seas and oceans, look no further than this, our final episode of the Outlander Omnibus! That’s right folks, it’s finally time to debate the differences between Outlander and Game of Thrones (multitudes rejoice!). Highlights include The Case of the Missing Thirsty Shoulder Footage, How to Make a Villain 101, and a classic Kirstie Feelings Journey™. If you also think Game of Thrones is garbage, come at us in our Twitter mentions @hatewatchwithus!

The good news about this episode is that the Outlander Omnibus is back! The bad news? We promise you two segments but only deliver on one! We promise, it’s actually kind of worth it. We’ll force our feelings upon you, talk about memorable moments and crying at TV, and shout our favorite catchphrase a whole bunch. If we failed to mention your favorite thing about Outlander, tell us at @hatewatchwithus!

Something strange happened with this episode, as if it fell through the stones at Cragh na dun and got lost for a few days before finding its way back to these, our modern times. Or at least that’s the story we’re going with to explain why this episode is late. This time on the Outlander Omnibus, we’re talking MEN, specifically men we want to bone, more specifically, Jamie. We spend some time objectifying everybody’s favorite fantasy husband, then we expand to discuss the rest of Outlander’s men. Kirstie has some latent feelings about turtlenecks again, and we wrap it all up with the legendary Hatewatch segment, listen to us Google a thing. JE SUIS PREST!

It's our second favorite Hatewatch Holiday of the year! Pilot Palooza is back with all the shows we didn't watch in 2017. We start with a retrospective of the shows we watched during last year's Pilot Palooza and get emotional about all the friends we've made along the way. Then we dive right in with the 6 shows from our hat. The only thing hotter than Kirstie's mic are all the takes. We had feelings about men, computers, feminism, Scottish men, HBO, Rob Lowe, time travel, and knitting patterns. This was a year of long episodes and an overall impression of "meh". Find out which show stood out in the pack and start making plans for next year's Pilot Palooza. We also have a very special shout out for our first Apple Podcast reviewer! We also deeply apologize for Kirstie's audio quality, take it as a lesson to never spend time in a closet.
