TV on the Internet's second episode is here, and we're hopeful we aren't so breathe-y this week (actually, we know we aren't, but now we might be too quiet, which is an entirely different issue altogether). As always, we appreciate your critiques and comments in the comments, so let us know what you think, and be honest.
We're available on iTunes, finally, if that's how you'd like to get the show, or you can check us out at Podcast Alley, Podcast Pickle or the TV on the Internet libsyn page.
This week, we talk about ER, argue about 30 Rock and discuss my everlasting affection for Amanda Bynes. Full details after the jump.

A Podcast Recommendation:
We love us some Myles McNutt here at the SDD, since he used to write here and all, and his "McNuttCast" is worth a listen. Apparently, he has a brother? Who knew!
