It’s our five year anniversary here at The Televerse, so it’s time for yet another Make-You-Watch-athon! This year, two under-represented genres on The Televerse are in the spotlight: Kate makes Noel catch up with reality competition series RuPaul’s Drag Race and Noel broadens Kate’s anime horizons, making her watch the sports/game-themed Chihayafuru. Before the Make-You-Watch-athon, however, we dive in with a full week in TV, including the premieres of Fear The Walking Dead, The Great British Bake Off, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, and Halt and Catch Fire, as well as a much-anticipated Steven Universe, penultimate episodes of Greenleaf and The Night Of, and an Elliot-less Mr. Robot.
It’s hard to believe it’s been five years already. Thank you, listeners, for your support and your conversation over the years, and here’s to five more!
