Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Direwolves, Fat Betty, and Soggy Detectives

April is the start of television’s playoff season, the month when big-ticket contenders return to reclaim past glories and season-long survivors attempt to finish out the year strong. So it’s an all-TV edition of the podcast this week as Chris and I go direwolf hunting with Game of Thrones (1:00), kill The Killing (15:40), and attempt to weigh the implications of plus-size Betty Draper (Francis) (Klump) on Mad Men (30:00). We also preview two excellent comedies airing tonight: the season finale of Happy Endings (36:20) and the probable series finale of the excellent, unfairly buried Bent (23:45). Grab some horse meat, Brian Benben. It’s go time.
