With HBO’s finales this week, Spring TV finally winds down, leaving only a handful of shows for Noel and Kate to discuss, but plenty of time for deep dives. First up, we break down ABC’s new night of retro game shows, The $100,000 Pyramid, Match Game, and Celebrity Family Feud. Then we talk comedy, including the Silicon Valley and Veep finales, and next up are the genre and drama offerings, including in-depth looks at the Game of Thrones finale, BrainDead, and UnREAL. Afterward, Emily L. Stephens of The A.V. Club returns to the podcast to help us explore the fascinating and unique first season of Lady Dynamite.
