Talking TV Podcast Takes on 'The Killing' and 'Game of Thrones' Finales, Plus 'Wilfred' and 'Louie'

It's a busy week in TV (for a rundown of what's returning, debuting or wrapping up this week, check out this list), hence two Talking TV podcasts.

In the first one, Ryan McGee and I discuss the season finale of HBO's 'Game of Thrones' (which I wrote about here) and the season finale of AMC's 'The Killing' (my take on that is here) with our special guest, Tom Fitzgerald from the very enjoyable TomandLorenzo.com site, which publishes commentary on television, fashion and pop culture.

In the second podcast, Ryan and I discuss the returning comedy 'Louie,' which we like a lot, and 'Wilfred,' a new comedy starring Elijah Wood. I'll publish reviews of those FX shows, which arrive Thursday, in the next day or two.

Running times for the podcasts are below.

In the first podcast, Tom, Ryan and I talk about 'The Killing' for about the first 31 minutes, then we gab about 'Game of Thrones' for the rest. There are a few issues with Tom's audio in the first part of the podcast, but please be patient, they get better.

In the second podcast, we talk about 'Louie' until minute 14, then we talk about 'Wilfred' for the remainder of the time.

As always, you can grab the podcast from iTunes (where you can also subscribe) or you can get both of this week's podcasts from the Talking TV home site.

Full archives of every 'Talking TV' podcast are available here. The entire 'Talking TV' archives are also available on iTunes. Our RSS feed is here.

You may be the only person in America who finds Peter Dinklage's GoT enunciation offputting, but you're not the only person in the world!

Not that it affects my enjoyment of the show more than half a percent or something, but I do agree with you.

I really want to hear Mo's anti-TheKilling rant out loud!

NOOOOO! If Mo ever rants out loud the internet will be scourged by cleansing fire. She will walk out of the flames with dragons at her breast and wreak terrible vengeance upon us all. Don't wake the dragon, in the names of all that's holy!

I think this is enough, to sum:
Veena Sud is the Julie Taymor of cable network drama, but with far less insight, and a hell of a lot more excuses.
