We all know the pain of being so obsessed with a series, all you want to do is talk about what went down on the latest episode and your theories about what’s going on. In the moments after an episode ends all you want is 1) MORE and 2) someone to break it all down with. Now, we have your answer to both.
eTalk anchor and The Social host (and our favourite celeb gossip-dishing bestie), Lainey Lui has a new show where she’s going to give us the goods as the episode debrief buddy we need post-show, as well offer some exclusive content and interviews.
Lainey will kick off Cravings: The Aftershow by covering the new HBO mystery drama, The Outsider (Sundays 9pET on Crave) starring Jason Bateman, Ben Mendelsohn and Golden Globe nominee Cynthia Erivo. The series was adapted from the Stephen King novel of the same name about a gruesome murder and we’re only going on the gripping trailer, but we’ve got a feeling we’re going to be obsessed with cracking the case before the cops do. Thankfully, we’ll have Lainey there to help us out.

Every Sunday night, starting on January 12, Lainey, along with a rotating panel of guests, will help us breakdown and process the wild, wonderful and weird television we just watched. It’s like the discussion we would be having on Twitter anyway, but live. If you don’t have a dependable TV-watching buddy, or if you do but want to add one with an insider’s POV, this companion show is a godsend.
The Lainey analysis won’t end with The Outsider either (brace yourselves now—it’s only 10 episodes), she’ll be returning for more and truly become a Sunday night staple from now on. Girl, where were you when we were yelling about Daenerys post-Game of Thrones and gasping at the Meryl Streep slap on Big Little Lies?
If you’d rather get your debriefs during your Monday morning commute or (gasp!) can’t watch the show live, Cravings: The Aftershow will also be available as a podcast on iHeartRadio and anywhere else you get your pods.
The Outsider premieres on Crave January 12 at 9pET with two back-to-back episodes followed by Cravings: The Aftershow.
