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.

Todd and Libby recorded this podcast several weeks ago, just after the upfronts were over, but they're only just getting it to you now. If they sound a little echoey, that's because the interior of their car is in a cave-ave-ave-ave. Anyway, we don't remember precisely what they talk about, but Libby seemed pretty angry, and we know you like that. With music from Adam Emperor Southard and Boban Markovic Orkestar!

Todd and Libby are joined by their friend and colleague Zack Handlen to talk about two of the most exciting television programs on the air right now: The Americans and Hannibal. There will be much discussion of if the latter has a problem with its female characters and just why it seems like the former hasn't been able to break out. There will also be much praise. And maybe a dance break. (Dance break not included.)

Todd and Libby intended to record a quick, reactive podcast to the How I Met Your Mother finale. Instead, they got together with their friend Amy Whipple, who loved the damn thing, and hashed out just why Todd and Libby thought things went very wrong, while Amy thought they went very right. Also, Amy tells Todd how you can change the gender of a Furby.

Todd and Libby return from yet another hiatus with Sonia Saraiya in tow, and they have a particularly argumentative episode, particularly when it comes to Libby and Sonia throwing down over True Detective and Hannibal. But, okay, it's not as dramatic as all that. Also, they discuss the third season of Girls, the major shocker on Good Wife, and a handful of other things you should be watching. And Libby calls Todd a "shitty baby" toward the end, which is everything and more.

Yes, it's another one of those dreaded "in a car" podcasts, this time from an Envoy driving across wintry Iowa in the middle of some harsh winds. Which is all to say that it sounds a bit worse than usual. However, Todd and Libby have some good TV to discuss for you, including the fifth season of Community, the first season of True Detective, and the first season of Enlisted. And if you can make it through the noise issues, then you can hear Libby complain about air travel at length!
