So one of our final three Dancing With the Stars contestants is a big pile of meh as far as we're concerned, and one of the folks who went home is someone whose joy we enjoyed, but all things considered, it's not been a bad season under the mirror ball. We give our thoughts on this week's dances, wins, and losses, and look forward to next week's two days of finals (look for our podcast on Wednesday). We also continue our Parks and Rec marathon with the season-five episodes "Pawnee Commons," "Ron and Diane," "Two Parties," and "Women in Garbage"; watch "Enemies" along with the West Wing Weekly podcast; and work in a quick chat about the recent slaughter of not-yet-renewed shows and the way Lin-Manuel Miranda's Twitter presence is reinforcing all our worst procrastinating habits. If you're following along on our marathons (and not procrastinating), next week we'll be watching the Parks and Rec episodes "Ann's Decision," "Emergency Response," "Leslie and Ben," and "Correspondent's Lunch," and the West Wing episode "The Short List."
