In this week’s episode, we talk about anti-heroes. Are there too many anti-heroes on TV? What started as a really exciting storytelling idea has become the yawn-inducing standard. We talk about what Smith has labeled Toxic Heisenberg Syndrome and share our favorite TV anti-heroes. Speaking of anti-heroes, in our second segment, we review The CW’s radical reimagining of the wholesome Archie comics, “Riverdale,” and NBC’s grim take of “The Wizard Of Oz,” “Emerald City” with journalist Abbie Bernstein.
