The Televerse #140- Informed Opinions: Science and Research on TV

Better Off Ted image

It’s yet another full week in television, with two big premieres and finales giving us plenty to discuss on the podcast. First we look at the comedies, including the finale of Review and the premiere of Louie. Then we talk a little The Amazing Race, before getting into the genre series, including Supernatural’s back-door pilot and the finale of Vikings, and we wrap up our week in TV with the dramas, including this week’s Make Sean Watch winner, Drop Dead Diva, and the premiere of 24: Live Another Day. Afterwards, it’s time for another installment in our Informed Opinion series, as we discuss representations of science and research on television with guest Vlad Nicolaescu.
