This week, Clint and Allison are joined once again by SyFy and Paste’s Jacob Oller (and the absentee picks of lost-but-not-forgotten co-host Kate Kulzick of The Televerse) as we break down the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend finale, Netflix’s new ’90s nostalgia show Everything Sucks!, and gush about the return of The CW’s galactically silly superhero show Legends of Tomorrow.

Along the way, we also celebrate Drunk History‘s take on sex ed history, salute the brave students of Parkland in their public TV appearances, and nitpick about which version of “Way Down in the Hole” works best for The Wire. Enjoy!
