“Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan”: “Homeland,” “Parks and Recreation,” and what 2012 holds in store

Mo Ryan and I are back, this time with two special returning guests. Todd VanDerWerff and Alyssa Rosenberg join us to discuss the first season of “Homeland,” the fourth season of “Parks and Recreations,” and issues related to the enjoyment of long-form televised narrative in general. No time breakdowns this week, as it’s a wide-ranging discussion. But if you haven’t fully caught up on “Homeland,” this might be one to skip until you do.

This week’s music: “Crazy,” Gnarls Barkley; “The End,” The Beatles As per usual, you can subscribe to the podcast¬†here.
