Running Down Firefly Lane

We attempt to grapple with Netflix's new lady-dramedy!

With our intended guest and Firefly Lane expert LaToya Ferguson forced to bow out (we’ll re-book her again ASAP!), your co-hosts muddled through on Netflix’s new middlebrow book adaptation to the best of our ability. Around The Dial takes us through the late Quibi sitcom Mapleworth Murders, Hulu’s Canadian import Jann, HBO Max’s Danish import The Investigation — and Borgen, with which it shares approximately half its cast — the just-announced Black Panther show coming to Disney+ from Ryan Coogler, and Syfy’s Resident Alien. Tara presents the A.P. Bio episode “Teacher Jail” to The Canon. And because the Loser is VERY dark, we name the Loser THEN the Winner this week, rather than send you home on a downer. Freshen up your Aqua Net and join us!
