Alyssa Rosenberg (ThinkProgress) and Todd VanDerWerff (The AV Club, Los Angeles Times)

On the debut episode of Critic Proof, Alyssa and Todd recount their experience at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Los Angeles. They preview the upcoming TV season, listing the best and worst new shows. Why is it so hard to make a good sitcom? Or a good network drama, for that matter? The two compare the business models of Hulu and Netflix as they compete to bring movies and TV to the Internet. Finally, they discuss why Breaking Bad fans are so critical of Skyler White, while her meth-dealing husband gets a pass (includes spoilers).
