Telling The Truth About Poker Face

Alan Sepinwall returns to discuss Peacock's new Lyonne/Johnson Columb-alike!

Peacock’s latest original series is a Rian Johnson-created Columbo-esque “case of the week” procedural starring a fugitive cocktail waitress/human lie detector played by Natasha Lyonne; Rolling Stone Chief TV Critic Alan Sepinwall returns to discuss it (and bring with him all his coverage from the magazine)! Around The Dial takes us through the start of a new season of Married At First Sight (yes, already), plus Shrinking, Russian Doll, Lockwood & Co., and a new season of 9-1-1: Lone Star. Jeff argues that he is NOT a crackpot for thinking so-called “bottle episodes” are wildly overpraised. Laura presents the Better Call Saul episode “Something Stupid” for induction into The Canon. Then, after naming the week’s Winner and Loser, we’ve got a lot of questions in Game Time. Sync the Bluetooth in your classic Barracuda and listen!
