Hungry for more Shat on TV? Here's an audio hors d'oeuvres you might enjoy. Straight from our Shat The Movies podcast, join Gene, Rog and Big D for an encore presentation of "Top Gun." Subscribe to Shat The Movies to hear a new '80s or '90s movie shat session each week.

"Top Gun" is the perfect time capsule for 1986, the only year where you could make a successful "American romantic military action drama." We remember amazing performances by Tom Cruise, Tom Skerritt, Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Kelly McGillis, and Michael Ironside. We remember Kenny Loggins and Berlin propelling the soundtrack to 9 million copies sold. But many people forget this movie had flaws the size of a Tomcat. Find out if it stands the test of time, and learn way too much about our sex lives in the process.

Theme Song - Die Hard by Guyz Nite

Jul 17, 2017

Game of Thrones' Season 7 premiere united our favorite characters and brought some lesser-knowns to the spotlight. We got one last chance to hate Walder Frey, one fresh chance to cringe at Ed Sheeran, and we learned to cheer for Euron Greyjoy (and his two good hands).

Listen to this quick-take Instacast and prepare for Tuesday Game of Thrones Deep Dive.

Also, holy crap, white walker giants.

Theme Song - Interloper by Kevin MacLeod 

Mar 3, 2017

The "Taboo" finale was mostly well received by the twitter audience, however, it also triggered strong feelings from citizens of Shat Nation: anger over Zilpha's death, frustration over plot holes, curiosity about James Delaney's mental state, and hope for a "Taboo" season 2 and beyond.

Roger, Gene & Big D attempt to answer: 

  • Why did the kill off the most interesting character (Zilpha)?
  • Did the character of James Delaney ever truly learn anything?
  • Was this show ever truly about mysticism?
  • Will the League of the Damned traverse across America "Oregon Trail-Style" in Season 2?

The final River Rants of the Taboo FX season is here! Plus, it's a bonus edition with 13 action-and-expletive-packed letters to savor. So strap on your life jacket & hop aboard the Shat Sailboat as we take one final trip down the river and off to sea.

The "Taboo" finale thrilled us with swashbuckling fun, explosive performances and the answers to many key questions. But it also left us wondering if the show could be streamlined and whether certain plot points made any sense.

Who deserved to live? Who should have died? What's the plan now, and will there be a Taboo Season 2? Slap on your top hat and swim trunks, and let's take one last Deep Dive together.

Is James Delaney preparing to die? "Taboo" Episode 7 answered a lot of lingering questions but left Tom Hardy in the greatest danger we've seen in this FX thriller. With one episode to go, let's review all the pieces in motion, the characters in peril and the mysteries solved.

This week's "Taboo" theories center around the ladies as listeners write in about Zilpha's and James' sex scene, Anna Delaney's intent in submerging her son and who killed Winter.

Tom Hardy's grunt supercut makes its "Taboo River Rants" debut, and we debate a second season of "Taboo" as the FX series nears it's final two episodes. Hear other listeners like you, then add to the mix with your own River Rant by writing hosts@shatontv.com.

Still loving "Taboo"? You might be in the minority. As FX's "Legion" launches and Tom Hardy's drama turns darker, some viewers are jumping ship. Hear why some fans are grumbling and why others are jumping to the defense of "Taboo."

This Taboo FX edition of Shat on TV covers Cholmondeley's gun powder factory, Lorna Bow's search for James Delaney, Dr. Dumbarton's true allegiance, Chichester making Sir Strange squirm and the dark cloud of cholera.

And, of course, we've gotta talk about Zilpha killing Thorne and rushing to the bed of her (half) brother. Spoiler alert: The scene is sexy until James' dead mom shows up.

The only way our Taboo listener mail would be better is if Coop delivered them to our doorstep, himself!

In this week's edition of 'River Rants' the fans look back on Episode 5 and ask such questions as:

- Who was that long haired individual outside Delaneys window?
- Is Sir Stuart Strange a serial pederast?
- Will Thorne turn out to be an ally of James?
- What would a montage of Tom Hardy grunting look like?

Big D & Rog also tackle topics like Chekov's Gunpowder, story similarities to Flashman, and how far up the incest hierarchy you can go before it gets too weird.  So climb aboard, sit down, and hold on tight as we "head on down the river".

It's our favorite episode yet! If you haven't watched "Taboo" episode 5, do it NOW. Then join us for a lightning-round discussion of James Delaney's plans for gunpowder, Brace's hatred of Horace's trunk, James' duel with Thorne and Zilpha losing her religion.

Think you have Carlsbad figured out? We have a theory that might make you barf. Also, Cholmondeley the Chemist has a boner.

In this week's River Rants, "Taboo" fans theorize on James Keziah Delaney's secret motives, teach us about what submissives like from their dominants, and speculate on what happened to Anna Delaney.

"Taboo" viewers also wrote about the blood bond between Horace, Zilpha, Anna and James Delaney. And they dug deep into who is helping the Americans in their attempts to capture the right to Nootka Sound.

"Taboo" Episode 4 brought us remote rape, a pig costume, fecal feasting, a disemboweled giant, a psychic horse and a fellatio heist. And then it got weird.

Let's review the Crown's plot against Lorna Bow, James' plan to make gunpowder, Countess Musgrove's ball, Carlsbad's identity, Thorne's duel challenge and why any man would want to ship barrels of whore piss.

Sounds like a job for Shat On TV! Join our merry League of the Damned, and let the nitrous flow!

Taboo just threw us all for a loop. Just when we thought we had it figured out, James Keziah Delaney's mother bursts into the narrative, then more hallucinations, then he makes out with his sister, Zilpha.

Wanna talk about the fireplace scene, Lorna Bow's abduction or whether menstruation is a proper dinnertime topic? So do we!

Warning: Some of the content in this episode is grosser than crabs crawling out of dude's belly, more horrifying than the Prince Regent's complexion, and more vulgar than Thorne's stupid face.

Welcome to the Molly House, loyal Taboo fans, let's get nasty.

"Taboo" exploded onto our screens with murder, nightmare, necromancy, prostitution and testicular threats. We knew Tom Hardy would be a beastly, brooding, mysterious James Keziah Delaney, but we didn't know "Taboo" would be something rare on FX: a murder mystery.

Join the Shat on TV crew as we introduce the characters, dive deeper into James' identity, review the history of the East India Company (seriously, Gene went a bit too far in this) and relish the visual richness of this gorgeously grimy debut.
