Kate’s under the weather, so it’s a somewhat truncated podcast this week. First we look at the week’s comedies, including The McCarthys‘ pilot and the triumphant return of Adventure Time, but unfortunately not Bob’s Burgers (Kate and Simon will discuss Bob’s fabulous Halloween episode next week—The Televerse regrets the error!). Then we talk some genre, including the latest episodes of Arrow and Constantine, and we wrap up the week with the dramas, including the premiere of Elementary, a lengthy chat on Kingdom, and a look at the fantastic HBO miniseries, Olive Kitteridge. Afterward, Sonia Saraiya, the TV critic for Salon, joins us at the DVD Shelf to discuss the current batch of live-action superhero series airing on the networks and what the various properties are getting right, and wrong.
