TV on the Internet
TV critic Todd VanDerWerff and TV watcher Libby Hill take on the week in television, classic TV and some of the biggest debates in TV past and present.
TV on the Internet, Episode 68: Hey, TVOTI, Welcome To The '60s

Todd and Libby take a magical voyage back to a time when the world was filled with optimism, hope, social change, and hippies, as they return to the 1960s with NBC's new fall show The Playboy Club and ABC's new fall show Pan Am. (They like one much more than the other.) They also discuss the Emmy nominations several days late, agreeing that they're pretty good, as these things go. And in the centerpiece, the thing you came to hear, they talk about how they liked the first three episodes of the fourth season of Breaking Bad. (Perhaps unsurprisingly, they enjoyed them very much.)

TV on the Internet, Episode 67: Emmy Justice

It's time for the annual Emmy nominations prediction podcast, and Todd is joined by Erik Anderson of Awards Prophets and Big Ted of For Your Speculation, as he always is. Topics include just why the Emmys might fall hard for Hot In Cleveland, Ted's belief in the strength of Justified, and Erik tries to keep everyone's hopes in check. Libby, meanwhile, is off doing something else, though she's dismayed to learn more about what Todd's been doing with his time. And make sure to keep your ears peeled for a very special guest star.

TV on the Internet, Episode 66: Being In Separate Cities Makes Us Sleepy

Libby's in Detroit, either taking photos of unexpectedly gorgeous architectural ruins or babysitting. It's not immediately clear which. Todd is still in California and slowly falling apart. But they didn't forget about you, and they didn't foget to get on Skype and talk about a bunch of stuff, including fielding 20 of your questions. Included in this podcast are thoughts on three new sitcoms starring hipster girls, Todd's complete lack of knowledge on the Casey Anthony trial, and Libby's feelings on her hidden past as a youth rodeo champion. All that plus songs!
