Anticipating a slower TV week (which then did not materialize), Noel and Kate try something new this week on the podcast: our first summer catch-up, where we sample series our listeners have been buzzing about. For our inaugural summer catch-up, we dive in with the first seasons of BBC Four’s Detectorists and SyFy’s Killjoys. First up, though, is that supposedly slow week in TV. We kick things off with looks at a handful of the comedies and reality series we tuned in for, including the premieres of The Lowe Files and The Guest Book, the return of Rick and Morty, and a squee-inducing Younger. Afterward, we head over to the genre and drama offerings, including the premieres of Sinner and Room 104, Game of Thrones, Wynonna Earp, The Bold Type, and the emotional midseason finale of Queen Sugar. What surprised and delighted us this week, and where did we fall on listener favorites Detectorists and Killjoys? Tune in to find out, then leave your thoughts in the comments below!
