Emily Maya Mills, Brandon Barrick, Alice Lowe and Andy Riley join host, Dave Holmes for pop culture quizzing and a run down of some of the worst sitcom adaptations to ever try to cross the Atlantic.

Other useful links this week:

Emily Maya Mills wants to plug her album recording at the UCB Theatre on May 21st and recommends Olive Kittereidge.

Brandon Barrick wants to plug The Friday Forty. Brandon recommends and The Americans on FX.

Alice Lowe wants to plug her BBC radio sketch show, Alice’s Wunderland and recommends the Dangerous Minds blog.

Andy Riley wants to plug his episode of The Odditorium podcast and probably should have plugged the new series of Veep. Andy recommends Today I Wrote Nothing: The Selected Writings of Daniil Kharms.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month.

Written by Sarah Morgan and Asterios Kokkinos, recorded at MaxFunHQ in LA and GuiltFreePost in London, produced by Jennifer Marmor and Colin Anderson.
