This week, we're deconstructing the trend away from prestige dramas, and more towards shorter, funnier series of varying lengths. Viewers' tolerance for drama is starting to wane, as illustrated in particular by issues with the latest seasons of "Unreal" and "Mr. Robot."
Plus: in the wake of the series finale of HBO's "Looking," which took the form of a 90-minute film, we discuss the successes and failures of closing out beloved TV shows with movie-length finales.
14:00-20:28: Mr. Robot
20:28-27:25: Stranger Things
