On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, Catherine and Terri check in with Netflix’s original series The Crown, and continue watching The Great American Baking Show and The West Wing. Here’s your road map:

00:33 The Great American Baking Show — We continue to enjoy this comforting dish of not-fierce competition. This week, the bakers took on pies, tarts, and other pastries, and we waited with baited breath to find out if their bottoms were soggy. Next time: chocolate!

12:00 The Crown — Catherine watched this Netflix original 10-parter, and compares it with Downton Abbey and Wolf Hall (at least in this edition, Claire Foy plays a queen who gets to keep her head).

20:16 The West Wing Weekly — This week’s episode, “The Drop-In,” featured that scoundrel Lord John Marbury, plus a powerful scene with our beloved C.J. Cregg (Allison Janney) and Rocky Carroll as comedian Corey Sykes.

We’ll be taking next week off from the podcast, but join us in 2017 as we continue with The Great American Baking Show and The West Wing, plus pick up some shiny new pop culture to consume. Happy new year!
