Ep 73: State of the Sitcom - The Cosby Show, with Kobi from Flixwatcher & The Wire Stripped Podcasts

May 16, 2018

State of the Sitcom continues...

We plunge further into our miniseries taking on all things sitcom from I Love Lucy to Rick & Morty and everything in between!

In this second episode we're joined by Kobi, the enigmatic co-host of both the FlixWatcher and The Wire Stripped podcasts to discuss the staple of 80s and 90s primetime television, The Cosby Show.

We discuss the comedy, scriptwriting and cultural impact of the show in its heyday as well as focussing on the ongoing case against Bill Cosby and other key figures in comedy who have been charged with similar abuse or worse. This deep but fun podcast also covers the best and worst of UK and US sitcoms, how to deal with your heroes falling from grace and the ongoing calamity that is Last of the Summer Wine. We're very proud of how much we covered with Kobi and hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it!

Tune in next week for more special guests and maybe pour a criminal glass of fortified wine from Cádiz!

Happy Sitcom-ing,

JoJ x
