Welcome to the 23rd episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! In this week’s episode we talk about season three of the Emmy nominated TV show Catastrophe.
Leftover Popcorn is a weekly podcast dedicated to the world of moving pictures. Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder share a passion for everything, both weird and wonderful, from the world of television and cinema, and as such we’ll be discussing an eclectic mix of topics in the weeks and months to come.
The podcast itself is built with a very simple structure, with the hosting duties shared, each episode is built around a mixture of three or four regular segments. The segments rotate from week to week leaving discussion open to new releases in film and or TV, classics from both the big and small screen, broader discussions on influential figures and their work, previews of upcoming releases, and more.
Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.

Before you dive in and start listening, let’s take a closer look at the subjects of this week’s main segments.
Catastrophe: Season 3 (2017) – Rob Delaney, Sharon Horgan
Now into its third season, British sitcom Catastrophe remains as sharp and witty as ever.
Written by and starring the comedy powerhouse duo of Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, and directed by Ben Taylor, it’s a true to life look at the challenges fate can pose a couple who are still trying to adjust to their relatively new roles of husband, wife and parents.
Blade Runner 2049 (2017) – Denis Villeneuve
A cult classic widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, many have felt an air of trepidation about the prospect of a Blade Runner sequel.
With the first full trailer for Blade Runner 2049 arriving, and the likes of Denis Villeneuve, Ryan Gosling and Roger Deakins all involved, it may be time for people to get their hopes up.
Be sure to return next week when we’ll talk about Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol.2.
