Happy Tuesday! Time for our final in-person Firewall & Iceberg Podcast of press tour.

I should be heading home by the time you see/hear this, but Dan and I recorded another show yesterday, bouncing back and forth between press tour discussions and reviews of “Show Me a Hero” and the finales of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “True Detective” season 2.

We also announced that next week's podcast (likely not happening until Thursday or Friday) will have us discussing the series finales of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” And note that there is a bit more press tour discussion (or, rather, an excuse for Dan to vent again about “The Good Wife” SplitScreenGate) right after the “True Detective” segment.

The rundown:

“Show Me a Hero” (00:01:20 – 00:12:40)
Press Tour Talk (00:12:40 – 00:29:00)
The end of Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” (00:29:15 – 00:35:00)
“True Detective” finale (00:35:00 – 00:56:45)

As always, send questions to firewalliceberg@hitfix.com. You can subscribe to The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast over at the iTunes Store, where you can also rate us and comment on us. Or you can always follow our RSS Feed, download the MP3 file, subscribe on IHeartRadio or stream it on Dan's blog.

There's also now a complete archive of all the podcasts to date.
