What We’re Watching and Listening To: Good Place “Whenever You’re Ready” and West Wing Weekly “Tomorrow”
We weren't, in fact, ready, but both of our show watches have come to an end. The Good Place's series finale, "Whenever You're Ready," brought the series to a satisfying conclusion (Terri needed some convincing, but she got there). We appreciated the official TGP Podcast's final episodes, featuring series creator Mike Schur sharing a ton of background information about the making of the entire series.
Less successful and satisfying: The West Wing Weekly podcast's final episode on the West Wing series finale, "Tomorrow." Kudos to the podcast team on getting 30 (yes, 30!) WW cast and crew members to appear on their show, but it turns out we like our discussions to be a little more intimate.
Next up, we are going to dive into something new and something old(er): Zoe's Extraordinary Playlist, which recently debuted on NBC, and Veronica Mars (hi, Kristen Bell!) from 2004. The latter has an accompanying podcast co-hosted by Helen Zaltzman of The Allusionist, so we'll check that out too.
