From comedy to drama, TV did not screw around this week, broaching intense and loaded topics with respect and sensitivity. We start out our week in TV with the comedies, including Netflix’s Fuller House, the Girls premiere, and this week’s powerful black-ish, “Hope”. Next up are the genre entries, including the much-lambasted finale of The X-Files, and we round out the week with the dramas, including another fun American Crime Story and an interview-filled American Crime. Afterward, comedian and podcaster Jimmy Pardo joins Kate at the DVD Shelf to break down the ‘70s police procedural Kojak.

Tune in to the Never Not Funny 2016 Pardcast-a-thon on Saturday, March 5th, a podcast telethon to raise money for SmileTrain, an international charity that provides cleft lip and palate surgeries to children.
