This week at the Water Cooler, we’re talking about some recent on the ground observations from an anonymous Emmy source about the 2017 campaign. Then, we explore long-term Netflix series like Orange Is the New Black, now in its fifth season, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. After the cancellation of The Get Down and Sense8, does the streaming programmer know when to say when? How can Orange Is the New Black continue after the events of Season 5? Should it?
Our weekly TV Tidbits segment starts with the drama surrounding the drama in NYC’s Public Theater for Shakespeare in the Park. Then, we take a look at the drama surrounding TV’s Bachelor in Paradise as it started filming its latest season. Finally, we’ll talk about the drama surrounding Tom Cruise’s The Mummy and what it says about his status as a leading man.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
