Some big finales and plenty of other interesting TV keeps Noel and Kate busy this week. After some griping about The Amazing Race, we dive in with the comedies, including gender role-tastic episodes of The Carmichael Show and black-ish (thank you, writers!). Next up are the genre entries, including the return of Steven Universe, the penultimate The 100 of the season, and another DC TV roundup, and we round out the week with the dramas, including plenty of The Good Wife, Elementary, and Underground finale talk.
Then in lieu of the DVD Shelf, we head to DePaul’s A Celebration of Star Trek, with a recording of Kate’s Star Trek Fantasy Crew Draft. Kate moderates as author Jody Lynn Nye, Jon Clarke of Caffeinated Comics, Sean Kelley of Improvised Star Trek, Caroline Siede of The A.V. Club, and writer Gordon Dymowski draft their ideal Star Trek crews, compiling a team out of the series regulars from Star Trek: TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise. Each panelist is tasked with a crisis to avert, and it’s up to the audience to decide whose lineup is the ultimate fantasy Star Trek crew.
