Welcome to another episode of TV Avalanche, where Brian Grubb and I try to sort out the best, worst, and most interesting things happening in Peak TV.

After devoting all of last week’s episode to Parks and Recreation, it’s back to more or less business as usual this week, give or take digressions to discuss Suits co-star Meghan Markle joining the Royal Family, the merits of the Back to the Future sequels, and why Brian would dare to suggest Lethal Weapon is a better movie than Die Hard. In between all that goofiness, we squeeze in reviews of The Crown season two, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Happy, then get into some spoilers about the current season of Mr. Robot.

As always, you can send questions to tvavalanche@uproxx.com, or tweet with the hashtag #TVAvalanche.

You can also follow the podcast directly on Twitter. Uproxx now has a dedicated TV Avalanche page with links to all the ways you can subscribe, but just in case, the podcast is available on iTunes (please rate and review if you haven’t already), Stitcher, Google Play, and Android. You can also stream it below or download it from SoundCloud. Our theme song is “Brundlefly” by The Zombie Dandies, which you can download here.
