Happy Wine Wednesday! We are delighted to return this week to discuss NBC's Grand Crew. It's a no brainer that a podcast where we drink wine and talk about pop culture would cover this amazing show focused on a group of friends who also appreciate the joys of bonding over a good glass of wine. Special guest Candi returns this week to discuss why you should absolutely be watching Grand Crew and why NBC needs to renew this show for several more seasons.
During the main discussion, we talk about the first two episodes of the show. Heads up, we understand that everyone is probably experiencing a lot slap discourse fatigue. The topic organically came up in our discussion about the Grand Crew pilot, which opens up with a discussion about Black men having the space to be layered and complicated. Following that, we talk about everything we liked and didn't like about the first two episodes of Grand Crew. Spoiler alert - the only thing we didn't like was NBC's failure to properly promote this terrific show.
As always, we get into the Qs that need some As. We share the moment from the first two episode in which we truly felt seen by the Grand Crew writers. We also celebrate the ensemble cast and the fun personalities reflected in all of the characters. Of course we had to share which character we related to most. We talk about what separates Grand Crew from other friendship comedies, as well as how the writers have woven contemporary topics into the show without coming off as a regurgitation of Twitter threads.
Regular listeners know that we drink, we know things, we use adult language and we get THIRSTY! The main discussion closes out with the members of the Grand Crew ensemble with whom we'd like to get wine drunk.
For those of you who were wise enough to watch the entire first season of Grand Crew, we have a fun spoiler segment where we talk about the rest of the season.
As always, we love you for listening. Find and follow Candi on Twitter here.
