The DVD Shelf makes its triumphant return this week on The Televerse, with Assistant Professor of Media Studies and Television Studies Charlotte Howell of Boston University joining Kate and Noel to dive deep with the delicious comfort food that is Murder, She Wrote. Before that, though, we have a full week in TV to discuss. We kick things off with the comedies, including the premiere of IFC’s Brockmire, the season premiere of Archer: Dreamland, and entertaining new installments of Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless. After sharing our thoughts on a cheer-tastic RuPaul’s Drag Race, we move on to the week’s genre offerings, including the premieres of Dimension 404, Rick and Morty, and iZombie, and the finale of Legends of Tomorrow. Then we round out the week with the drama offerings, including the return of Prison Break, the much-anticipated Oscars episode of Feud: Bette and Joan, another Cato-centered Underground, an intense American Crime, and a divisive The Good Fight. It’s another full week in TV; share your thoughts on what you’ve been watching, and of course Mrs. Jessica Fletcher, below.
