What is it about Joe that we find so fascinating? Is it possible to romantically 'ship a murderer with anyone? Did humanizing Joe make you like him more or less? Is anyone else fascinated by Peach? Is Karen Minty going to make a comeback? Most importantly, why do we get carded to buy Sudafed, but Paco was able to walk into a hardware store to buy just about anything? We're also talking a little about how much we love Schitt's Creek, why they shouldn't create a love triangle for CoNic on The Resident, and we give you a little glimpse of what's coming soon!
