We're working overtime here at Talking TV headquarters to double your pleasure this week. We've got two podcasts for you, and both of them feature special guests.

Ryan McGee and I also recorded a podcast with special guest Alan Sepinwall, TV critic for Hitfix.com. Talking TV: Part Deux finds us analyzing NBC's reasons for benching 'Community' and discussing what that means for the future of the show and the network. Alan also joined us for our weekly chat about 'Sons of Anarchy.'

That's why we need a Save Greendale campaign, which should not only involve felt beards but also letters to NBC (and if you have further ideas on how to save the show, please share them below). Here's my open letter to Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment:
