Episode 57: Colorization of TV

This week join Jonathan and Andrew as they discuss CBS’s recent efforts at colorizing and packaging classic episodes of I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. Then the conversation takes a historical turn as Andrew and Jonathan discuss what role black and white plays in our understanding of history and what role, if any, “generations” play into it.

Episode 56: TV Shows That Never Existed

This week join Jonathan and Andrew as they discuss the online archives that have been built to TV shows that never existed: the 1963 Fantastic Four series and the late 1970s show Kresky. They discuss the particulars of each of these archives, whether we can classify them as hoaxes, and whether each of these can be understood as practices in alternative history or merely genre experiments.
