It’s been a tough week for representation on TV, and Kate and Noel kick off this episode venting some frustration over the cancellation of The Nightly Show, as well as the recent Inside Amy Schumer Twitter drama. Then we head into our week in TV, starting with a roundup of Kate’s recent streaming viewing, including the pilots of The Tick and Jean-Claude Van Johnson, the first half of season one of The Get Down, and Difficult People. Then Noel and Kate wrap up the first segment with looks at the finale of The Great British Baking Show and some lighter episodes of Steven Universe. Then we head into the dramas, including a check in on BrainDead and more The Night Of, Greenleaf, and Mr. Robot talk. Afterward, Nick Campbell of TVGuide.com and Super Cereal joins us at the DVD Shelf to talk MTV’s ‘90s sketch comedy series The State.
