Talking TV Podcast Takes on 'The Killing,' 'The Borgias,' 'Camelot' and 'Mad Men'

Spring is bringing us a lot of new programs, and in this week's Talking TV podcast, we shared our thoughts on several of them, and we also took on the ongoing 'Mad Men' kerfuffle (or brouhaha, if you will).

In our discussion of 'The Killing,' Ryan McGee and I shared some thoughts on AMC's emerging house style, and in our conversation about 'The Borgias,' we talked about how Showtime is in need of some fresh energy. Other shows discussed in this week's podcast include 'Body of Proof' and 'Camelot.'

For a breakdown of the topics in this week's conversation, see below.

Here are the time codes for the various discussions:

0–3:26: Intro

3:27–13:04: 'Body of Proof' (my review of the new Dana Delany drama is here)

13:05–27:18: 'Camelot' (premieres Friday on Starz; I'll post a review of it in the next day or so)

27:19–37:39: 'The Borgias' (premieres Sunday on Showtime; I'll post a review Thursday) and where things stand at Showtime

37:40–47:18: 'The Killing' (premieres Sunday on AMC; I'll post a review Thursday or Friday) and how it fits into the emerging AMC aesthetic

47:19: The fractured negotiations over the fifth season of 'Mad Men' (I wrote about this ongoing story here)

As always, you can subscribe to the Talking TV podcast on iTunes, or you can listen to or grab the mp3 file from this site.

This week's podcast is also available here, as are full archives of every 'Talking TV' podcast. The 'Talking TV' archives are also available on iTunes as well.

Thanks very much for listening!

I enjoy your podcast, but two thoughts. One: This episode you could tell the skype connection was really patchy. Two: I listen to this podcast in the car with my family. I always look at the content before playing, because I know there is no way I am going to listen to analysis of Archer in front of my children. That being said, less s**t bombs would be greatly appreciated.
