Hall of Faces: The Golden Girls
Deep in the bowels of CPN Studios, there lies a chamber only the greatest TV characters can enter – the funniest, the grumpiest, the maddest visages the television medium has to offer. There, we honor the breakout comic relief, the magnetically flawed protagonist, the one-time guest character that defines an entire series. This is where we hoard TV’s most valuable visages. This… is the Hall of Faces.This week, Allison and Clint are joined by their pals and confidantes Kris Vire (theater critic for the Chicago Sun-Times and elsewhere) and Joshua Davis to lounge out on the lanai and pick their favorite Golden Girl! The Emmy-winning sitcom about four older women embracing their second adolescence while living together in Miami is one of television's greatest treasures, so we decided to honor these esteemed ladies by making them battle it out for a spot in our Hall of Faces.Who will it be - Bea Arthur's sardonic Dorothy Zbornak? Betty White's ditzy Rose Nylund? Rue McClanahan's man-hungry Blanche Devereaux? or Estelle Getty's irascible Sophia Petrillo? We break down the lives, the loves, and the loungewear of television's greatest senior citizens, along with the latest TV news, picks of the week, and Bachelorette haiku.

Breaking Down the Handmaid's Tale Finale and 2018 Emmy Nominations
It's been a whirlwind week in TV, but the hosts of TV Party have you covered! Kate Kulzick joins Allison and Clint once again, this time to talk about the bold, controversial finale to the second season of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale. What do the events of the finale mean for the future of Gilead? Have we lost some characters for good? And why didn't June get in the truck?! From underground Martha railroads to Bradley Whitford's love of Annie Lennox, we cover it all for you. We also dig into the whirlwind of this year's Emmy nominations (read more of our thoughts in this year's Emmys breakdown), from our biggest surprises (Kenan!) to our biggest snubs (no Crazy-Ex Girlfriend?!). But that's not all! Clint chats with the effervescent star of Somebody Feed Phil (and Everybody Loves Raymond co-creator) Phil Rosenthal about the importance of travel, the unexpected political weight of his show, and dispenses some much-appreciated relationship advice.

Just Do This For Me! Steven Universe
It's recurring guest Kate Kulzick's birthday, which means it's a perfect time for another installment of our regular segment Just Do This For Me!, in which one of our hosts or guests forces the others to watch a show of their choosing, and we talk about it on air.This time, we take a look at Cartoon Network's bubbly, infectious animated series Steven Universe, just in time for the show's big StevenBomb event! Kate (and her Gem of a sister Maggie) join Allison and Clint to talk about the show's incredible cult following, surprisingly nuanced grasp of serialized storytelling and groundbreaking LGBT representation. Oh, and the songs, of course. So many great songs.(Note: Some technical difficulties affected the audio quality of this episode, apologies for that. We'll be back to our sprightly, professional-sounding selves next week.)Timestamps:7:41 - Picks of the Week:Kate: Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (Netflix), Claws, "Scream" (TNT)Allison: The Bold Type, "Stride of Pride" (Freeform), The Handmaid's Tale, "Postpartum" (Hulu)Clint: GLOW, "The Good Twin" (Netflix), Pose, "Mother's Day" (FX)20:37 - Bachelorette HaikusJust Do This For Me!: Steven Universe21:38 - Introductions30:51 - Themes42:53 - Characters51:46 - Episodes1:05:57 - Music1:19:11 - The most recent StevenBomb1:35:30 - Picks for Next Week:Allison: Harlots season 2 (Hulu)Kate: Handmaid's Tale finale (Hulu)Clint: Sharp Objects (HBO), rewatching Babylon 5 (Amazon Prime)Learn more about your ad choices.
