It’s another in-person Televerse, as Simon’s down in Chicago this week. After talking through a somewhat mixed week in TV, Simon and Kate settle on Justified’s “Thick as Mud” as this week’s spotlight episode. Then we welcome Michael Ryan from the OperaNow! podcast to the DVD Shelf to discuss, well, certainly not the war!, but the classic British comedy, Fawlty Towers.
This week, we cover New Girl, the Cougar Town premiere, Suburgatory, Happy Endings, Top Chef: Texas, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Archer, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Fringe, the finale of The Fades, An Idiot Abroad, the Life’s Too Short pilot, the Eastbound & Down premiere, Downton Abbey, the premiere of The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Luck, Lost Girl, The Voice, and Smash.
