The April onslaught continues, with another handful of premieres and finales giving Noel and Kate lots of TV to discuss. We kick things off with the comedies, including season one of Girlboss, the premiere of Veep, the finale of Girls, and much more. Next up are the genre offerings, including the premieres of Doctor Who and Class, and some reality talk, with a catchup on The Amazing Race and another lackluster RuPaul’s Drag Race. Then we round out our week with the dramas, including the premieres of The Leftovers and Fargo, the finale of The Good Fight, and more. Afterward, The A.V. Club’s Caroline Siede
returns to the DVD Shelf to help Kate reminisce on Girls, its legacy, and how it shaped, and was shaped by, the way we discuss television.
