Big Dickinson Energy

The panel takes on Season 2 of Apple TV's "period piece," plus Dansondome, The Masked Dancer, and Tube Tunes VII!

The regular panelists had to forge ahead without esteemed colleague Kathryn VanArendonk in our discussion of Dickinson‘s second season; that’s the bad news. The good news is, we all like Apple TV’s imagining of poet Emily Dickinson’s life and loves with lots of swearing and twenty-first-century slang. How DOES the show balance the demands of historical fact with flights of fancy, and not take itself too seriously? And are Season 2’s creepy [character spoiler redacted] the key to its success? Later, we went Around The Dial with The Masked Dancer, Everything Is Going Great, Cheers Season 5, Mr. Mayor‘s debut, and Lupin and other “Pringle mysteries.” A new detective franchise won, an old HBO franchise lost, and we continued the episode’s verse theme with the Tara-crafted Tube Tunes VII. Pass Nobody an earbud for an all-new Extra Hot Great.
