This episode, the usual Improv crew is joined by Chris Pappas. This Chris Pappas. Not this one. And not this one.

Two topics are on tap: first, we talk television. From The Wire and Mad Men, to Dexter, LOST, 24 and a bunch of British stuff Chris watches. After that, we talk World Cup.

So put down the vuvuzelas and download episode #7!
