The first week of network premieres is upon us, prompting another lengthy episode of the podcast. We kick things off with the comedies, including the premieres of Speechless, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore, and Will & Grace, the finales of Difficult People and People of Earth, and more delightful episodes of The  Good Place and DuckTales. Next up are the reality and drama offerings, including the premiere of Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, a beautiful Halt & Catch Fire, and the conclusion of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s The Vietnam War. Finally, we wrap up the episode with our spotlight segment, diving deep with the two-episode premiere of Star Trek: Discovery.
