Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:40 Dancing with the Stars: We preview the stars (or "stars") who'll appear this season. We'll be watching, so check back every Tuesday for our recap.
07:55 John from Cincinnati: The last two episodes meant plenty of surfing, levitation, f-bombs, and general weirdness ... but not quite a satisfying finish to this series, at least for Catherine.
13:30 The West Wing: In "The Black Vera Wang," Sam makes a dumb move and Donna is out $200. But at least we have the Simon-C.J. rom-com to enjoy.
22:56 Challenge Round: Pushing Daisies: After watching Amelie (last week's challenge), Terri picked Pushing Daisies as a perfect follow-up. It's delightfully charming and quirky, and there's pie! After failing to tempt Terri with the audiobooks of Harry Potter (featuring Daisies narrator Jim Dale as the reader) for our next challenge, Catherine selected Grand Designs on Netflix instead (season 11, episode 1, "South Yorkshire").
Next week, we'll cover that, along with the DWTS premiere, The West Wing's "We Killed Yamamoto," and the Emmy Awards!
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
