Guys in Hats

For St. Patrick’s Day, Tim reviews an Irish series that has arrived in America. Also, we break down Tim’s lengthy article comparing the modern king of the weird “Legion” to the 1990s weirdness of “Twin Peaks,” and what it means for the revival of “Twin Peaks” on Showtime later this year. (Hint: Showtime is not very happy with Tim right now.)

…Unless You Try to Overachieve

Tim reviews the surprisingly good (and questionably titled) “Patriot”, and finds it to be one of the best new shows on TV. Also we revisit “Legion,” so Jason can concur with Tim’s rave review. And from the UK comes “National Treasure,” a show that does not involve Nicolas Cage even a little bit.

Like a Book… So I’m Told

Tim makes a vow to finish more series! We say a fond farewell to Mary Tyler Moore. The visuals in FX’s “Legion” are trippy, but it’s more a drama about mental illness than a shiny X-Men vehicle. All this and your letters, this week on the TV Talk Machine…

Vacuum of Incompetence

Jason’s back to talk with Tim about the Golden Globes, returning series (“Colony”, “Teachers”, “Homeland”), the stability of the CW, a time-travel show Jason likes (“Travelers”), and a bunch of new series, including “Victoria,” “Sneaky Pete,” “The Young Pope,” and “A Series of Unfortunate Events.”
