On the latest installment of our Classics Revisited series, the ladies dig into 2004 period drama North and South, a story that's equal parts romance and class drama, with an extremely attractive Richard Armitage on top.
Noted soccer fan - and Telly Visions boss - Nick Scalera joins the ladies to break down the good, the bad, and the wildly ridiculous of Ted Lasso Season 2, from Ted's struggle with anxiety to the state of Roy and Keeley's romance and whether that whole Nate thing actually worked.

Contributor Janet Mullany returns to the show to discuss the final episodes of Atlantic Crossing, from the uncomfortable FDR creep factor and Martha's impressive array of great hats to the series' determined refusal to pick a lane about whatever is going on with their relationship.
The ladies decide to talk about a show that's not particularly British or especially prestige, but they love it anyway: Buzzy Netflix fantasy drama Shadow and Bone, which molds a popular YA fantasy into something that's much greater than the sum of its parts.
The ladies dig into the new Netflix show The Irregulars, a vaguely Sherlock Holmes-adjacent genre series that sees a teen version of the Baker Street Irregulars attempt to solve a series of interconnected supernatural mysteries, and use it as an excuse to talk other recent adaptations of the great detective's story.
The ladies attempt to break down what's coming this spring in the world of British television - and what we may have to wait a bit longer than usual to see, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic - from Atlantic Crossing and Netflix's The Serpent to updates on the latest seasons of Call the Midwife, Grantchester, and Unforgotten.
The ladies dig into the first season of period mystery Miss Scarlet and the Duke, from its treatment of gender and race in the Victorian era to whether Eliza and the Duke should get together romantically. (Warning: Lacy's really obsessed.)

The ladies finally dig in to the period drama everyone's been talking about: Bridgerton. From favorite siblings to Season 2 hopes, Lacy and Ani discuss what works and what doesn't about Netflix's big Regency hit. (Warning: Much like the show we're discussing, this conversation can be somewhat TV-MA.)
The ladies are joined by contributor Carmen Croghan to dig into The Great British Baking Show Season 8, one of the beloved reality show's most controversial outings. What worked, what didn't, and how much the coronavirus restrictions impacted proceedings are all on the table.
Sherlock, the mega-popular modern Holmes update that made global stars of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, turns 10 this month. (Yes, really.) The ladies welcome contributor Carmen Croghan for a (loooong) chat about how the series has held up, why the final season is so bad, and the impact the show still has today.

Telly Visions contributor Janet Mullany joins the ladies via the magic of the internet for a deep dive into World on Fire's first season thus far. We swoon over Arthur Darvill's addition to the cast, discuss Lois' future, and speculate about what might be ahead for Robina.

Now that it's over, Lacy and Ani look back on Doctor Who Season 12, digging into everything from our favorite episodes to what we think works and what doesn't in the Chris Chibnall era. (Are three companions too many? Did we need to see the Cybermen again? What about all the finale twists? In short: There's a lot to talk about.)
