Noel is once again on assignment, so this week Kate is joined by The A.V. Club’s Emily L. Stephens for an in-depth look at a full week in TV. After a little Tonys talk, we dive in with our week in TV, starting with reality and comedy, including ESPN’s latest 30 for 30 documentary, the fantastic O.J. Simpson: Made in America, the premieres of Another Period, Wrecked, and Uncle Buck, and the finale of Inside Amy Schumer. Next up are the genre and drama offerings, including the premieres of BrainDead and Animal Kingdom and the finale of Orphan Black. Then we round out the podcast by inviting on The A.V. Club’s Dennis Perkins for a lengthy look at The Americans Season 4, talking character deaths, marriage as espionage, and what has helped this series steeped in pain and betrayal continue to grow and flourish.
