Every week, Maclean’s arts writers Adrian Lee, Emma Teitel and Julia De Laurentiis Johnson gather to discuss and break down the hottest topics in TV, film, books and music. Expect discussion, analysis and interviews, all replicating the feeling of having a coffee and talking pop with your friends!
On this week’s podcast, we talk about the tricky waters of making a spin-off, with AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul now hitting its stride; we discuss the new problems and benefits of binge-watching, with House of Cards‘ third season debuting on Friday, Feb. 27, all at once on Netflix; and we reframe Canadians’ rejoicing over R&B star/pop-culture villain Chris Brown being rejected at the border, and his cancelled concerts in Toronto and Montreal.
