Things get a bit contentious this week on the podcast, with several episodes prompting strong reactions from Noel and Kate. First up are the comedies, including the premieres of Playing House and Younger, the finale of Veep, and fun episodes of Wrecked and The Carmichael Show. Then we move over to reality, with looks at the return of Terrace House and relaunch of Battle of the Network Stars, an underwhelming The Great British Baking Show, and the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Last up in our week in TV are the genre and drama offerings, including the premiere of GLOW (which Kate perhaps mis-categorized), the finale of iZombie, and new installments of Queen Sugar and Wynonna Earp. Afterward, Allison Shoemaker of Podlander Drunkcast, Debating Doctor Who, Consequence of Sound, and The A.V. Club, among others, returns to the podcast to champion American Gods season one and try to bring us around on a much-anticipated season that left us as cold as Laura Moon.
