After last week’s marathon podcast, we’re back to a more manageable length, though there’s still plenty of TV talk to go around. Joining Kate this week is Cooper S. Beckett from Eat the Rudecast, Damn Good Podcast, and Life on the Swingset, who helps Kate look at some comedy and genre favorites (The Muppets, Drunk History, Rick and Morty, Doctor Who) and dives in with a new show mid-series (Review). Kate also talks the Documentary Now finale, the Amazing Race premiere, the Heroes Reborn premiere, the Masters of Sex finale, and previews Sleepy Hollow season three. Afterward, Cooper heads over to the DVD Shelf to help Kate break down an underrated (comparatively) recent series, the reliably comedic, and occasionally crushingly dramatic, Scrubs.
Continuing on from part one of this week’s mega-podcast, David Bax from Battleship Pretension and Hey Watch This! joins Kate to break down this fall’s new series.
Returning to the podcast this week is friend of the show David Bax, from Battleship Pretension and Hey Watch This!, and as always happens when David is on the show, this is a long one. So long, in fact, that we’ve split the podcast into two parts. First up is David and Kate’s look at the week’s TV, including previews of the upcoming returns of The Last Man on Earth, Bob’s Burgers, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, Empire, and Nashville, as well as looks at Married, Project Runway, the 2015 Emmy Awards, and more. Afterward, David sticks around to preview the fall’s upcoming new series, but to avoid putting out a three hour beast of a podcast episode, that segment is available separately.
For possibly the final time, welcome back to This Is Our Design. With some time to digest the season three finale of Hannibal, set aside a chunk of your evening (and by that, we mean over three and a half hours) to dive in with co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick, who are joined by Noel Kirkpatrick of TV.com to help with the discussion of “The Wrath of the Lamb”—a discussion with very differing opinions. As always, stick around for “Kate’s Classical Corner” and “The Devil in the Details,” but also of interest are our season three and series awards. Finally, we wanted to take the time to thank as many people as possible, which make up the final minutes of this podcast.
