EHG 152: If It Please The Court: Better Call Saul

Jeff Drake returns to argue motions about the legal dramedy's third-season premiere!

Production Note: Jeff's audio is 'clipping' for the first five minutes of the podcast. Listenable, just somewhat chunky -- like soup.

As Better Call Saul returns for its third season, Jeff Drake joins us to discuss the slow-burning premiere (with a few peeks ahead at its showier second episode, shhhh). Around The Dial clicks through the series finale of Switched At Birth, Amazon's under-the-radar spy show Patriot, and American Experience's three-part series, "The Great War." Jeff presents his case for the induction of Monty Python's Flying Circus's series premiere, "Whither Canada?," to the Canon. And after naming the week's Winner and Loser, we all learn that some demented maniac (you know you are, Rob Hartmann) has gamified F/M/K. All rise!
