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.
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.
The fall premieres may be winding down elsewhere, but The CW is just gearing up, giving us plenty of interesting TV to talk about this week. Alasdair Wilkins of The A.V. Club and Debating Doctor Who joins Kate for a more mainstream week in TV, starting with a little reality talk, as Kate waxes rhapsodic on The Great British Bake Off, and then moving to the comedies, including deep dives with Gravity Falls, Bob’s Burgers, and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Next up are the drama and genre offerings, including a preview of Manhattan season two and a look at the premieres of Supernatural, iZombie, Arrow, and The Flash, and afterwards, we head over to the DVD Shelf to break down the UK fish out of time buddy cop series Life on Mars.
Thank goodness last week’s episode was on the shorter side, because it’s another marathon edition of The Televerse this week. PopOptiq co-creator and Editor-in-Chief Ricky D joins Kate this week to cohost the podcast, starting with a very full week in TV. We kick things off with a whole lotta comedies, including Trevor Noah’s first week at The Daily Show, the finales of Review, Rick and Morty, and Married, and a handful of returning fall comedies. Next up are the genre entries, including a preview of American Horror Story: Hotel, a post-finale look at Vixen, and Agents of SHIELD premiere talk, as well as some quality time with new and returning genre favorites. Then we round out our week in TV with the dramas, including a preview of Fargo season two and some Empire and The Leftovers premiere discussion. And after our massive week in TV, we dive in with a season spotlight on Fear The Walking Dead, which wrapped up its first season this week.
