    Sad news, the best TV podcast is saying goodbye later this month:

    Be still my heart! Very sad about this; they’ve always been my favorite TV podcast.

    Yeah.  This is a big loss.  There are so few good podcasts for general TV reviewing anyway, and there goes the best one.

    What is going on with HitFix?  The Fien Print’s Dan Fienberg, In Contention’s Kris Tapley and co-founder Gregory Ellwood all left in the span of weeks.

    That’s too bad. Fienberg always sounded like a pompous blowhard every time he spoke, so his absence doesn’t bother me any. Sepinwall, on the other hand, has an encyclopedic grasp on television’s past and present that will be missed. They certainly had a nice rapport between them. We’ll still have each of their written reviews of shows, and maybe Sepinwall will find a new partner to continue with the podcasts. Check out Vulture’s TV Podcasts in the meantime for your new fix. They’re excellent and just as incisive as Firewall was.

    I’ve been a listener since 2011. And this is harsh news, but considering that Dan went to THR, I do not find this surprising. Like, at all!  Lately, i’ve been also listening to Indiewire’s “Good Talk TV”. It’s good, but nothing compared to Firewall and Iceberg. Oh well… all good things must come to an end 🙁

    HitFix basically went the click bait route and alienated them in the process. It’s a good lesson for another site . . .

    But philosophies shift. As such, HitFix
    has made a decision to move out of the awards business and focus on its
    consumer audience, while I’ve made a decision to seek out a more proper
    fit, where I can provide the best possible coverage of this sector going
    forward. I wish the talented and vibrant crew here the best, but it’s
    time for me — for us — to move on.

    I also won’t really miss Fienberg, so I hope Sepinwall finds someone else for a new podcast.

    I will miss Feinberg, but Sepinwall is more essential to it. He can do it with someone else. I was starting to like Grantland’s Hollywood Prospectus Podcast (with Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald) more for TV talk lately anyway.
