Happy Tuesday! It's an in-person Firewall & Iceberg Podcast!

I landed at press tour this morning, and Dan and I were able to find a break in the schedule to go discuss NBC's “Mr. Robinson,” some strong recent cable finales (including the “UnREAL” finale, which I'd have written about if not for my travel schedule), and the latest in our look back at memorable TV series finales.

The rundown:

Quick TCA Blather (00:01:30 – 00:04:00)
“Mr. Robinson” (00:04:00 – 00:13:10)
Listener Mail – Press Tour Food (00:13:20 – 00:21:30)
“Halt and Catch Fire” Finale (00:21:40 – 00:37:25)
“UnReal” Finale (00:37:30 – 00:50:50)
