Mad Men
'Tis the season for TV. With "True Detective" over, and "Girls" winding down, we're going to have to start finding other fixes for our habit. "Game Of Thrones" comes in a few weeks (and you can catch up with a 25-minute recap of season three right here), but that's not all. AMC and Netflix will have new offerings too, so let's check 'em out.

On this latest episode, host Erik McClanahan is joined by Editor-In-Chief Rodrigo Perez, Managing Editor Kevin Jagernauth, our British correspondent Oliver Lyttelton, and later in the show by writer Cory Everett to talk about the recent "Breaking Bad" finale. But since we've already written about the episode, we try to dig deeper and do more than just recap the finale. Throughout the chat we spin off into other, grander topics involving television as well. How is the medium changing with streaming, binge watching and recaps on every site? Even though most people agree this is a golden age of television, there's still plenty of formulaic material and tired tropes found in even the best shows, "Breaking Bad" included. Warning, SPOILERS abound in this podcast so don't listen unless you've already seen the finale or don't care.

Welcome back streamers. We trust you had a good July 4th weekend and the hangover has finally subsided. We also assume you’ve gotten over the overlong, tonal headache that was “The Lone Ranger,” and now you’re debating if you should do the same with “Pacific Rim” or “Grown Ups 2.” Both reviews suggest that you should just stay home, which is good for us because we have lots of suggestions for you streaming this weekend. We’ve got an alternate Guillermo del Toro movie you could watch and instead of witnessing Adam Sandler fart on Salma Hayek, you could revisit arguably his best movie, thanks to Paul Thomas Anderson. We’ve also got a Michael Cera indie for you that’s hitting both theaters and VOD this weekend (but hey, maybe you can just watch it out of the comfort of your own home if it’s not playing in your town) and some classic gems, including some jewels from the Criterion archive not yet released on DVD. OK, let’s get to it.

While they continue to keep the numbers close to the chest, it's safe to say that Netflix's foray into original programming has been a success thus far. With three new shows under their belt this year -- "House Of Cards," "Hemlock Grove" and of course, the revived "Arrested Development" -- they are looking to keep you hooked to their service, and next month, yet another brand new series is dropping online.
