Episode 291: Regeneration

It’s regenerations galore in this week’s TV-focused episode of the Showcase! With the news that Matt Smith will leave Doctor Who at the end of this year, the question arises, who will be the twelfth Doctor? And will he finally be ginger? Meanwhile, Smith’s former companion Karen Gillan is regenerating into a villain in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In a shocking move, fired Community showrunner Dan Harmon is regenerating back into the show for season five! And how does the new NetFlix regeneration of Arrested Development stack up to the old stuff? Also this week, we talk about DC’s “Villain’s Month,” and in the picks Blake is digging Rocket Queen and the Wrench and Hope Larsen’s graphic novel adaptation of the classic children’s novel A Wrinkle in Time.
