After almost seven months off the air, Steve and Jackie are back for Season 4 of The Lowdown BlogCast. The show is off to a typically random start with talk about Google Plus, web browsers and Urban Dictionary definitions (among other things). Things settle down after only 20 minutes into a discussion of the NHL’s free agent frenzy and the big trades that were made in the run up to and after July 1st. The guys talk about the outlook for Philadelphia and Toronto heading into the 2011-12 season. They also examine the effect the ever-increasing salary floor has on contracts with mid-level players. They also talk about the return of the Winnipeg Jets and all the potential marketing missteps that TNSE can make. The talk then shifts to entertainment with reviews of Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Super Eight. The boys also talk about the epic series that was Friday Night Lights. TV talk also covers The Killing, Twin Peaks, Firefly and Castle. The show wraps with a discussion of the eventual failure of Two and a Half Men.
In all, our fourth season premiere is a shade over two hours of the classic Lowdown fun and insanity that you’ve come to expect from us.
