The Televerse #171- The Wire (Part 1) with Dennis Perkins

Series are heading to their midseason finales, giving us fewer shows to discuss this week on the podcast. First we look at some of the comedies, including another holiday Bob’s Burgers and the return of Jane the Virgin. Then Kate talks some genre, including the much-hyped The Flash/Arrow crossover, and we round out the week with the dramas, including the pilot of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce and the controversial penultimate episode of The Newsroom. Afterward, Dennis Perkins of The A.V. Club joins us for our first of two discussions about the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed The Wire.
