1 day ago
In this episode, Andrew and Charlie are joined by television critic and author Gwen Reyes to discuss the sixth episode of this season, "Church in Ruins." Did Pizzolatto go "too big" this season? Why do so many characters only exist to serve other characters? Is Frank an ethical guy, or just someone in denial about his actions? Was the much talked-about orgy scene effective? Is Ani feminine enough? Which character is probably going to die soon? And perhaps most importantly: who is Stan?! Plus, Andrew and Charlie go over some listener emails.
