Our current favorite shows and some old favorites coming back from the dead were on our minds for this week's Round 2 chat. Catherine provided an update on Wolf Hall, and we talked about the pop-culture proliferation of the property with a book, a TV show, and a two-part play that got eight Tony nominations shortly before our chat. Terri gave a review of where Dancing With the Stars is at the moment, with a goodbye to young Willow Shields (doing her final age-appropriate dance in the video here) and the continued participation of Noah Galloway (who Terri is rooting for) and Chris Soules (who she is not.)
From there, we took a look at some TV shows from the '80s and '90s that are poised to return to our screens, including former Dancing With the Stars contestant Candace Cameron Bure reprising her role as DJ Tanner in the Full House sequel Fuller House. What does it say about the state of current TV that things like Boy Meets World, Twin Peaks, The X-Files, and Coach (Coach?!) are getting a second life (Terri mentioned Dan Feinberg's take, which you can read on Hitfix.com)? And what shows should be joining in the revival? We shared our thoughts, now you give us yours in the comments.
