by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 2nd 2011 2:20PM
This week on the Talking TV podcast, Ryan McGee and I discuss AMC's new Western drama, 'Hell on Wheels,' we gab about this week's episode of 'Sons of Anarchy,' and we delve into some of the fall season's winners and losers.

Ryan and I each picked two winners and two losers: One of my winners was 'Revenge,' and one of my losers was fall's other woman-with-a-secret drama, the CW's 'Revenge.' Ryan chose ABC's Wednesday comedy block as a winner and 'Terra Nova' as a loser.

To find out what our other winner and loser choices were, grab the podcast and enjoy!

Good news (we hope) for SAMCRO fans: Now that 'Breaking Bad' has concluded its fourth season and we're not gabbing about that drama every week, Ryan McGee and I will be discussing 'Sons of Anarchy' weekly until 'SOA' ends its fourth season Nov. 29. In the final segment in this week's Talking TV podcast, we talk about Tuesday's eventful episode.

Before that, behold the magic: We talk briefly about the return of 'Beavis & Butt-head' on MTV on Thursday, the arrival of the new crime drama 'Whitechapel' on BBC America Wednesday, and the debut of 'Allen Gregory,' Jonah Hill's new animated comedy, Sunday on Fox. Then we talk for longer periods about 'Chuck's' return on Friday and the debut of the supernatural detective drama 'Grimm' the same night on NBC.

Running times are below.

For this week's podcast, we had a special guest for the last segment.

Before we got to 'Boss,' Ryan and I discussed 'The Walking Dead's' new season and its boffo ratings, and we also gabbed about the new ABC drama 'Once Upon a Time,' which premieres Sunday.

This week's podcast focuses on a new show, a program that just had its season finale, and a drama that's heading toward the end of its season.

In the first part of the podcast, Ryan McGee and I talked about FX's 'American Horror Story,' which debuts Wednesday (I reviewed it here). In the second part of the podcast, we talked about the season finale of 'Doctor Who,' which I wrote about here.

Finally, we wrapped up with a chat about the penultimate episode of 'Breaking Bad's' gripping fourth season. Just a heads up: After it airs, we'll have extensive coverage of the 'Breaking Bad' season finale, including an interview with creator Vince Gilligan and a 'Bad' Talking TV podcast featuring a special guest.

Further Thoughts on 'Torchwood,' Plus Podcast Chat on 'Falling Skies,' 'The Hour' and More

I'm a bit behind in posting updates about the last two podcasts, but we've got packed edition of Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan this week.

In this week's podcast, Ryan McGee and I talk about TNT's 'Falling Skies,' which has its season finale Sunday, 'Torchwood,' which hits the midpoint of its Starz season tonight, and 'The Hour,' an interesting new drama that arrives on BBC America Aug. 17. I am not sure if I'll get a chance to write a full review of 'The Hour' this month, so if you're interested in the period drama, which stars Dominic West of 'The Wire' as a news anchor in mid-'50s London, you might check out our non-spoilery discussion of the show.

In the last segment, I talk about some of the things that have transpired at the Television Critics Association press tour, which I've been attending for the last two weeks.

I've got a bit more to say about the new season of 'Torchwood' further down in this post, and there are running times for the podcast below as well.
