San Diego ComicCon 2016 has come and gone, leaving Kate with a Steven Universe high and a massive backlog of TV to catch up on. Because of this, we keep the TV this week to one large segment, rather than splitting it up by genre. A few of the highlights in this week’s conversation: Kate loses her mind for Stranger Things and Looking; Kate and Noel lose their minds for Steven Universe; we debate when to jump ship on the formerly compelling, but now struggling UnREAL and Mr. Robot; and Greenleaf’s exciting new gear. After Our Week in TV, friend of the show Maggie Kulzick returns to the podcast to talk SDCC 2016 with Kate and Noel, including rocking out with Rebecca Sugar and her band, geeking out over the potential of American Gods, and reactions to a couple of fall pilots.

First, however, we look at a full week in TV, starting with the return from hiatus of The Amazing Race. Then we dive in with the comedies, including a disappointing The Carmichael Show, before moving on to the genre entries. Disappointment is a bit of a theme, unfortunately, as we dive deep on The Walking Dead’s irritating season finale and an underwhelming Arrow, but fortunately we cleanse the palate with a much stronger week in drama, including the fantastic conclusion to American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and another strong Limitless.

What do Noel and Kate think of the rise of issues-based comedy? Should characters change over time? Can The 100 win us back, and what exactly happened on Adventure Time? Why isn’t God a character on Of Kings and Prophets, and why do we still belittle women for their hair? Did American Crime stick the landing and does it really matter either way?

After counting down their Top 20 TV Series of 2015 last week, Kate and Noel return to give their thoughts on the rest of the year that was in TV. From standard categories like Best Performance to fun ones like Best Villain and Trippiest Scene, Kate and Noel heap praise upon (or vent frustration about) the best, worst, most memorable, and most forgettable moments, seasons, series, and more this year. Joining in the fun are former cohosts Caroline Siede, Ricky D, Max Bledstein, Deepayan Sengupta, and Simon Howell, who call in to give out a few awards of their own.

December 16th, 2015|0 Comments

It’s the final regular podcast of the year, and joining Kate to send off the guest cohost era in style is former cohost Sean Colletti of PopOptiq, TV Overmind, and The Mid-Season Replacements. First, Kate and Sean look over the week’s notable comedy and reality offerings, including the finales to The Amazing Race, Nathan For You, and You’re the Worst, the pilots to Telenovela and Superstore, and a deep dive with Transparent season one. Then come the genre and drama offerings, including the midseason finales of The Good Wife, Arrow, and The Flash and last week’s buzzed about penultimate Fargo. Afterward, the DVD Shelf is at long last back, as Sean and Kate spend some quality time with the fantastic animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender.

It’s fall finale time, giving Kate and returning guest Whitney McIntosh of UPROXX and PopOptiq plenty to discuss this week on the podcast. First up are the week’s comedy and reality offerings, including a catchup with Survivor’s Remorse season two, the midseason finale of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Wiz Live!, and the premiere of Top Chef. Next are the week’s drama and genre entries, including a catchup with The Knick, the winter The Flash/Arrow crossover, and the season finale of Doctor Who. Then we round out the podcast with a season spotlight of HBO’s remarkable The Leftovers, which wrapped up its second (and potentially final) season this week.

The Televerse #222- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 1 with Deepayan Sengupta

December 1st, 2015|0 Comments

Much of TV may have taken the week off, thanks to (American) Thanksgiving, but there’s still plenty to discuss, as PopOptiq Managing Editor for TV Deepayan Sengupta returns to the podcast. First we talk comedy and reality, including previews of Transparent season two and The Great Holiday Baking Show and looks at Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, before moving onto the genre and drama offerings, including a preview of SyFy’s The Expanse and a deep dive with Doctor Who. Then it’s time for another season spotlight, as Deepayan helps Kate break down one of the year’s great new comedies, season one of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

The Televerse #221- Jessica Jones Season 1 with Noel Kirkpatrick

November 24th, 2015|0 Comments

Things get controversial this week on the podcast, as Noel Kirkpatrick from TV.com returns to help Kate break down the week’s TV. First up are the comedies, including Thanksgiving-inspired episodes of Fresh Off the Boat, Jane the Virgin, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and we round out our week in TV with the genre and drama offerings, including Adventure Time: Stakes, Limitless, Manhattan, and Fargo. Afterward, it’s time for another season spotlight, as Noel and Kate dive deep with season one of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, a feminist, noir addition to the Marvel TV universe.

November 18th, 2015|0 Comments

It’s another long podcast this week, with Caroline Siede of The A.V. Club and Debating Doctor Who returning to help Kate break down a comedy-heavy week in TV. We kick things off with said comedies and some reality talk, including looks at the continuation of Mr. Show, Netflix’s With Bob and David, the pilot of Project Runway Junior, a theatre-inspired Nathan For You, and much more. Next up are the dramas, including the new Amazon pilot Good Girls Revolt and Grey’s Anatomy, and we round out the week with the genre offerings, including a preview of The Man in the High Castle, a look at the pilot of Into the Badlands, and lots of superhero TV talk. Then in lieu of the DVD Shelf, we dive in with a season spotlight on the recent revival of Project Greenlight, and determine whether we’re #TeamEffie or #TeamJason.

The Televerse #219- Parks and Recreation with Elena Rivera

November 11th, 2015|0 Comments

We keep things local once again, with PopOptiq and The Televixen’s delightful Elena Rivera joining Kate to talk through another very full week in TV. First we look at the comedies, including Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang’s Master of None and the season three premiere of Mom, as well as standout episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and You’re the Worst. Next up are the genre and drama offerings, including Flesh and Bone and the premiere of Elementary, and we round out the podcast by heading to the DVD Shelf to gush about the dearly departed Parks and Recreation.

The Televerse #218- Holiday Omnibus 2 with Deepayan Sengupta

November 4th, 2015|0 Comments

Our usual format is back this week on the podcast, with PopOptiq’s own Deepayan Sengupta joining Kate to talk through a very full week in TV. First we look at the comedies, including fantastic episodes of You’re the Worst and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and catch up with Other Space season one. Next are the genre offerings, including the premieres of Les Revenants season two, Grimm season five, and Ash vs Evil Dead season one, as well as plenty of superhero and The CW fare. We finish out the week’s TV with the dramas, with a deep dive on The Affair and a timed roundup of Kate’s notable drama viewing, and afterwards, we head to the DVD Shelf for the second installment of the Holiday Omnibus. This time, Deepayan and Kate look at three memorable (or otherwise, as it turns out) Halloween episodes: Quantum Leap’s “Boogieman”, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s “Halloween II”, and the beloved classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

The Televerse #217- Show Me a Hero with Max Bledstein

October 27th, 2015|0 Comments

We take a different approach this week on the podcast, with PopOptiq and Vague Visage’s Max Bledstein joining Kate to dive deep with a handful of shows. First up are the comedies, with Kate’s comedy roundup and then a lengthier chat on The Muppets, followed by the week in genre and drama, again starting with Kate’s roundup before a longer discussion of the Supergirl pilot, Fargo, and The Leftovers. Afterward, it’s time for the DVD Shelf, this week looking at the David Simon miniseries from earlier this year, Show Me a Hero.

The Televerse #216- Justice League with Noel Kirkpatrick

October 20th, 2015|0 Comments

It’s another super-powered episode of the podcast, as Noel Kirkpatrick from TV.com joins Kate to look at a full week of TV before talking Justice League at the DVD Shelf. First up though, it’s the comedies, including the pilots for Truth Be Told and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as well as premieres for Nathan for You and Jane the Virgin. Next are the genre offerings, including a lengthy chat about Steven Universe, and we round out the week with the dramas, including the premieres of Manhattan and Kingdom as well as some overdue The Good Wife talk. Then we head to the DVD Shelf to dive in with Bruce Timm’s team-up series and extension of the DCAU, Justice League.
