Season 3 premiers September 20th!
‘Serial’ Season 3 Podcast Premiere Date Set
The description kind of makes it sound like Embedded.
Sounds like the complete opposite of what Serial is.
There an 8-minute audio "trailer" on the home page right now Serial: Season Three
The first two episodes of the season were released this morning. I really enjoyed the first one, haven't gotten a chance to listen to the second yet.
I like how they are keeping the format open, saying they could cover multiple cases in an episode or have a case that spans a few episodes. I'm optimistic this will easily top season two.
Alright, this has been pretty engaging and interesting
Agreed! Though I haven’t heard ep 4 yet. The first 3 were really intriguing.
I've only listened to the first episode so far but I loved it.
same and same, probably will listen to the majority of 4 on the way home tonight
Three episodes into season 3 and loving it
Yup. This is quality stuff and a very welcome change of pace for this show.
Of course. Every podcast is a tv show now.
I can’t wait until they do a podcast about a tv show that’s about a podcast
It will be interesting to put faces to all the voices at least. I listen to so many podcasts I forget most of the original Serial story so I definitely look forward to revisiting. I just hope it's not too long. Like no more than 4 episodes.
I think it said 4 episodes, if I'm not mistaken.
I agree, though. I listen to a lot of podcasts and it's been a while since I've heard this, so it will be cool to revisit it.
It's just find it funny how the industry insists on remakes/sequels/spin-offs/etc. over original ideas. I guess the new trend is to make a doc out of any successful podcast (Dirty John, Up and Vanished, now Serial)
If you're gonna turn a podcast into a TV show, at least do something new/different (Comedy Bang Bang, Maron, 2 Broke Girls)
Ah I didn't even watch the video as i'm at work.
Yeah the whole industry is filled with rehashes but I am totally welcoming these great podcast stories to get remade on TV. It will be better than 90% of the crap they come up with that is original. I heard that Dirty John was legitimately good. Idk how accurate that is because of who I heard it from though, hah.
The Dirty John podcast was good. I watched the doc (Dirty John: The Dirty Truth) and it was decent too. Interesting to see the actual people involved and hear it all from them. I watched the pilot of the Dirty John dramatized series. I love Connie Britton, but I was NOT feeling it, at all.
edit: that being said, critics seem to think it's pretty good.
I watched the Dirty John show. Connie Britton was good but I didn’t particularly enjoy the show
I was expecting a high quality show along the lines of American Crime Story with the Dirty John TV show due to the quality of actors it had, but it felt like I was watching a Lifetime original movie. I couldn't make it past the first episode.
It is a very Lifetime movie-esque story line so it's probably an inescapable thing for them making it.
Yeah, but the production quality of the pilot just felt off. Seemed low budget or something.
Adnan special on now
is it any good? I honestly haven't even heard anything about it
