Fall premieres strike again, and between another slew of premieres and a mega-dive with Luke Cage season one, Noel and Kate are back to marathon-length podcasting this episode. First up, we look at a full week in comedy, including the Insecure and Divorce premieres, check-ins on Atlanta, Better Things, High Maintenance, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and more strong installments of black-ish and The Good Place. Then we head over for some genre and reality TV, including the premieres of Westworld, The Flash, Arrow, and Frequency, a lengthy chat about the merits of Luke Cage versus Jessica Jones, an underwhelming Independent Lens, and another controversial RuPaul’s Drag Race. Lastly, we talk drama, including the premieres of Elementary and No Tomorrow and two more affecting entries from Queen Sugar and Halt and Catch Fire. Then Noel taps out as Kate welcomes back former Televerse cohost and current cohost of TV Roundtable Sean Colletti to spend some time with the Pfeffermans and Transparent season three.
