  • Yeah, I barely have time to get the show watched so these “after” shows get passed by us. With exception to Talking Dead, that one we will find time for :-)

    • Agreed it’s the only one I watch.

  • Really? I like the show a lot, but this just feels unnecessary.

      • Bob from Chattanooga – “The hour is coming…all that are in the graves, shall hear His voice…”. I will never forget this creepy caller! hahaha

  • If Chris Hardwick isn’t hosting, I’m not interested.

  • This show is way too slow paced for an after show.

  • These shows really aren’t necessary. Even The Talking Dead is getting dull. And Wolf Watch has run out of things to do because they seem to be just as confused as the viewers are in regards to the plot lines. The only one of these after shows that was helpful was Breaking Bad’s because I felt the need to talk it out after how stressful that show was.

    • Wolf Watch is terrible. I tried it twice because it was only 30 minutes and it was a total waste of time :-) The show itself is like wtf ?????

  • Wait, season 2 hasn’t started yet? Great, I can get season 1 (recently added to Netflix) in before March 3rd. This is one i was just going to wait and watch when the series was over but I think I’ll start now.

    • A&E’s also supposed to be having a marathon of the first season on Sunday or Monday, I believe. Hope you like the show!

  • Seems like a good idea. I’ll check it out get more in depth about new season from cast and producers of show.

  • I don’t understand the point of these after shows. Do people not pay attention to the show and need a recap right after? Talking Dead is funny but they over analyze everything. Never understood why an hour show needed an hour recap, at least this is only half hr. I don’t watch Wolf Watch, but enjoy Teen Wolf.

  • This is a better use of 30 minutes than the white trash garbage A&E usually airs these days.

  • Who is that idiotic bimbo hosting this show? What stupid vapid questions and comments and inane giggles after each of the guests answers. And speaking of the guest – the actors really need to dig a little deeper for some intelligent replies. Max and Vera seem totally clueless about their craft. A real disappointment…

  • The host is a very dry. This will not do very good unless they replace her. Sorry

  • Could have at least given it a few more weeks. Could have given it a chance.
