TV on the Internet, Episode 31: Things we hate about shows we love

Todd and Libby are joined by Zack Handlen of The AV Club and Daniel T. Walters of the Pacific Northwest Inlander this week to discuss things they hate about shows they love, inspired by Todd's borderline psychotic antipathy for Dwight Schrute on The Office. (OK, it's not that bad, but close.) They discuss things they hate about The Office, 30 Rock, Lost, Big Love, Burn Notice, Community, Mad Men and Breaking Bad, and then Zack and Daniel stick around for talk about last week's brand new episodes of Big Love and Lost.
