On this week's show, two reoccurring segments: the first return of "We Were Wrong About-- OR WERE WE?" (subject this time: Apple TV PLUS) and the final iteration of The Old Type about, inevitably, I Love Lucy. We discuss the episode "Lucy Does a Commercial" (which we all watched together) and then in turn the episodes "Lucy Thinks Ricky is Trying to Murder Her," "Job Switching," and "Lucy Meets Orson Welles." And speaking of our man Orson, here is the wine commercial outtakes reel of which we speak in the episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nvxwf1jxdaM. Trust me, you WILL want to watch it. Love, The Podcast.

In this episode of ATV, Robert Langdon visits a quarry, and that is how we know that this show was our destiny! Also featuring: bad arm casts, Dell desktops, pyramid tops, masonic squares, CIA psychics, and some Netflix metrics reporting!

On today's episode: Andrew and Kathryn spoil one particular scene of the new season of Succession for Margaret (terminally behind on all television) in a segment Andrew's eloquently dubbed "Jesus CHRIST, Kendall Roy," resulting in what we must assume is a record number of shell-shocked "oh BOY"s for any single episode of the podcast. Then we introduce a new retrospective segment: "We Were Wrong About-- OR WERE WE?", wherein we revisit opinions of old and see if any of our minds have changed since they were initially formed. Our first topic for reexamination? Well, it's only our least-popular opinion ever: Nailed It, the show only we appeared to dislike. WERE we wrong about it? Only by listening to the show can you find out.

This week we continue our final TV Book Club selection, carefully studying and then improbably deciphering the ancient secrets of episodes 2 and 3 of Peacock's Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol.
