It’s a mixed bag for Simon and Kate this time. In a week with several notable season finales, some live up to expectations and some live down. After breezing through Kate’s roundup, we look at the rest of the week, taking particular time with the Fringe finale, Mad Men, Sherlock, and, one final time, Smash, which also aired its season finale. Then we spotlight the season finale of Parks and Rec, “Win, Lose, or Draw” before welcoming Chris Gore from Attack of the Show back on, this time to the DVD Shelf, where we look at Chris Morris and Charlie Brooker’s 2005 cult series, Nathan Barley.
Other shows covered this week: Cougar Town, The Voice finale, the Around the World in 80 Plates premiere, Community, The Vampire Diaries finale, Supernatural, the HIMYM finale, the New Girl finale, 30 Rock, Eagleheart, Awake, Bob’s Burgers, Girls, and Veep.
