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.

It's the latest installment in Todd and Libby's popular "car podcasts" series, this time recorded in America's scenic Pacific Northwest, while driving from Seattle to Portland. Since it's just the two of them, they decided to answer a bunch of your questions, but not without lengthy side discussions about TV's disappearing history, Animal Planet's top 20 puppies, and their vacation. Come for the answers to your questions; stay for the needless insults to your personal character.

Todd and Libby are rejoined by fan favorite David Sims for an episode brought to you by the letters "b" and "r." First, they'll discuss how they're feeling about FX's summer drama The Bridge halfway into its run--and whether they're ever going to give much of a crap about the serial killer storyline. Then, they'll move on to British import Broadchurch, including a properly warned about spoiler section where they discuss the program's resolution for those of you who've seen the whole thing (and you know who you are). Finally, it's 20 minutes of talk about the latest Breaking Bad episode. Along the way, Todd will discuss genie slavery, Libby tries to get angry again, and David introduces us to his snake. (Not like that.)

It's been a tumultuous couple of weeks for Todd and Libby, who were torn asunder by the Television Critics Association press tour, then both got sick, also because of the TCA press tour. But they're back, and they've seen the season premiere of Breaking Bad, and they're joined by Carrie Raisler to talk about what's up with the show, what's up with Skyler, how they hope the end plays out, and what Breaking Bad's place will be in history. Join us, won't you?
