This week, we wend our way through the complicated topic of the modern TV canon. Are there canonical texts in the world of television? What purpose do they serve? What are the criteria by which they are judged? What do we learn from them? Lani has strong opinions about All In The Family, Alastair offends most Star Trek fans one way or another, and the list of shows discussed just keeps on growing.
