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.
I’m back from two weeks of vacation, during which Brian devoted FIFTY-FIVE MINUTES of one podcast to discussing Zoo with Caroline Framke, then did a 90-minute podcast about the Game of Thrones finale with Mo Ryan.
Because they discussed Thrones so exhaustively, we decided to move on to the unofficial start of the fall TV season, with joint reviews of two new shows and two returning shows, plus a dip into the mailbag before we split up for my take on Top of the Lake: China Girl and Brian’s on Narcos season three.
00:00-08:03 You’re the Worst season four
08:04-17:56 BoJack Horseman season four
17:57-28:34 The Orville
28:35-41:15 The Deuce
41:16-46:18 Listener mail: Is the average TV show better in Peak TV?
46:19-52:41 Alan on Top of the Lake: China Girl
52:42-01:02:15 Brian on Narcos season 3
