On the week of the beloved CW show’s finale, Allison and Clint make sure Rachel Bloom’s supporting cast won’t be ignored.
Deep in the bowels of The Spool Studios, there lies a chamber only the greatest TV characters can enter – the funniest, the grumpiest, the maddest masks the television medium has to offer. There, we honor the breakout comic relief, the magnetically flawed protagonist, the one-time guest character that defines an entire series. This is where we hoard TV’s most valuable visages. This… is the Hall of Faces.
Welcome to the Hall of Faces, The Spool’s monthly TV podcast! A spinoff of the short-lived Consequence of Sound podcast TV Party, Hall of Faces sees hosts and TV critics Allison Shoemaker and Clint Worthington build up a pantheon of television’s greatest characters, one show at a time.
As Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna‘s exuberant, complicated, hilarious
But we can’t help but wonder if there’s someone we’re forgetting, someone who shouldn’t be ignored… Oh! It’s George, he of the delightful ad-libbed songs about getting coffee, one of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s most beloved supporting players. And lucky for us, the one and only Danny Jolles joins us later in the episode to talk about George’s curious evolution, the origins of his breakout on the show, and more!
