The Televerse #164- 2014’s New Representations of Sexuality on TV with Mo Ryan

There’s a lot of interesting new TV kicking around, but this week we roll back our regular podcast coverage a bit to make room for a special segment. First we look at a few reality offerings, including the pilot of the new documentary series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, as well as some comedy, including an at least partially pantheon-level Key & Peele. Then we look at some genre, particularly American Horror Story: Freak Show, and we round out our week with a few drama offerings, including the finale of The Knick. Afterward, the fabulous Maureen Ryan of the Huffington Post and Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan returns to the podcast to discuss Transparent season one, the first half-season of Outlander, and several other series as we look at new representations of sexuality that are finally popping up on television.
