Alyssa Rosenberg (The Washington Post) and Willa Paskin (Slate)

On Critic Proof, Alyssa and Willa dive into the new television season, where women are rising and men are falling. They agree that Guys With Kids is lame and lazy, but are cautiously optimistic about Matthew Perry’s Go On. Why can’t NBC get its act together? Willa can’t believe that Revolution manages to make the post-apocalypse boring. They analyze Homeland, where Claire Danes portrays possibly the greatest female character of our era. Do fans of shows like Breaking Bad get overly obsessed with “plausibility”? Plus: A spoiler-filled discussion of Gillian Flynn’s novel Gone Girl.
