Yes, True Believers,we’ve drunk the Constantine Kool-Aid again.  But before they get to that, Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) discuss more of the news and renewals coming out of the the Television Critics Association winter tour.  This includes Gotham‘s renewal and interviews with Stephen Amell and Tom Cavanagh.  In casting news, Chuck finds a new job, young Dexter becomes the young Trickster and Mama Smoak is booking a return trip to Starling City.  They then discuss Agent Carter and the mid-season premiere of Constantine.  The Things That They Found Interesting include pasty, Alabama soul musicians and dating turmoils in 20th and 21st centuries.  And while that should be enough for any show they talk about FX’s The Americans for 6 minutes and ABC’s Galavant for 10.  Because you should.

Bonus:  The Americans Minute (38:40) Blow out on how great both seasons of the show are.  Both are available on Amazon Prime and the third season starts next week.

Double Bonus:  Galavant (44:13) Because they’re both musical theatre junkies, Nick and John just had to gush on the how for a bit.
