With the full sweep of fall network premieres headed our way next week, Noel and Kate take advantage of a lighter show list to check in once again with our 2017 TV resolutions. First, however, we look at the week’s TV, starting with the comedies, including the returns of The Good Place, Nathan For You, and Adventure Time, as well as Better Things and Broad City. Next up are the reality and drama offerings, including the 2017 Emmy awards, PBS’s The Vietnam War, the finale of The Sinner, and another moving Halt and Catch Fire. Afterward, it’s resolution time, with Noel continuing his exploration of current anime series, including new additions Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju and All Out!, and Kate diving in with her most potentially wheelhouse YouTube series yet, Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party.
