TV Avalanche Podcast, Episode 28: ‘The Defenders,’ ‘Halt And Catch Fire,’ ‘Game of Thrones’

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.

This week, we team up to talk about The Defenders — the climactic Marvel/Netflix drama that brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — then prepare to say goodbye to the great Halt and Catch Fire before answering your questions about putting Wynn Duffy from Justified on other shows, how hard it is to remember plot points on shows with long hiatuses, and what our two favorite NBA players could do on Game of Thrones. We close things up with a long spoiler discussion of the crazy schemes hatched by Jon Snow and company in “Eastwatch.”

00:00-15:01 The Defenders
15:02-23:00 Halt and Catch Fire season 4
23:01-37:21 Listener mail: All he does is Wynn
37:22-42:29 Listener mail: Remembering Peak TV plot points
42:30-46:47 Listener mail: Porzingis and Embiid on Game of Thrones?
46:48-01:15:03 Game of Thrones: “Eastwatch” spoilers

I’m on vacation for the next couple of weeks. Brian’s going to record at least one podcast in my absence, and from what little he has told me about of his plans, it should be a memorable — or, at least, silly — one.

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