In today's late-because-of-water-heater-chaos episode, we discuss three key things:

  • The origin of the name Peaky Blinders (in which Margaret and Andrew each invent new terms)
  • The pilot of Hulu's new adaptation of Y: The Last Man (which Margaret likens to this extremely timely and relevant cultural property)
  • And then the gonzo excellence of Peacock's adaptation of Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol

This year's crop of fall shows is small but potent. Look forward to watching each of these good and/or bad shows with us over the next few weeks. This is an episode that MOST of us came prepared for.

Although Margaret could not be with us for this episode, when it was time to check in with season two of Ted Lasso we knew that we'd be in capable hands with our friends Christina Tucker and Sophie Brookover. They join us this week for a conversation about the ups and downs of both Ted Lasso and Ted Lasso discourse, and they have a couple recommendations for what to watch. We cover such topics as: Sam! Whether this show has conflict! The experience of watching serial television! And, alarmingly, we attempt to discuss sports.

We're back, glory be! On this week's episode we're discussing a shocking revelation in the world of children's TV programming, the debatable delights of Doc McStuffins, and the absolutely established joys of Hulu's new original series Only Murders in the Building (with its gloriously Ephronian setting).

There is also a second segment to this episode, in which Andrew, Margaret and Kathryn all pitch imaginary TV shows about good journalism, and as per usual Margaret has an eerie number of truly fantastic TV ideas. But the main event here is that a patron forced Andrew to watch a truly awful TV show called Do No Harm aka Dr Facehands, and it was magnificent.
