With Noel still under the weather and Kate taking a rare vacation, it’s another short episode this week on the podcast. That being said, there’s still plenty of entertaining TV to discuss, including the season premiere of our beloved Jane the Virgin, another Halloween installment of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and fun episodes of Fresh Off the Boat and Saturday Night Live. Noel also checks in on This Is Us and Pitch, and we both heap more love for Supergirl. Afterward, Associate Professor Chris Becker from Notre Dame, creator of News for TV Majors and host of Aca-Media, joins us at the DVD Shelf to discuss the criminally underseen female-driven Vietnam medical drama China Beach.
