Midseason premiere season has begun, bringing with it plenty of new and returning TV to discuss. Noel and Kate kick things off by talking through a handful of the week’s standouts, starting with the week in reality and comedy, including Top Chef: Colorado, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, black-ish, and a much-anticipated The Good Place. Next up are the week’s drama and genre offerings, including the premieres of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Black Lightning, as well as the midseason premieres of Supernatural and The Flash. Then Noel and Kate welcome back The A.V. Club, Consequence of Sound, and RogerEbert.com contributor Allison Shoemaker to dive in with under-rated and under-discussed con and heist series Good Behavior, spotlighting the first two seasons of this entertaining and compelling gem.

Errata: In the opening section of the podcast, Kate references the trial of Larry Nassar and calls him a coach of the USA Gymnastics team. He was the doctor for the USA Gymnastics team, not a coach. The Televerse regrets the error!
