This Week In Streaming: Mrs. Davis Season 1

This episode is brought to you by the McDonald's app.


This Week In Streaming is a new podcast on the Decoding TV podcast feed that will cover the most interesting shows available on streaming each week.


This week, Dan Gvozden and David Chen cover the final 4 episodes of Mrs. Davis on Peacock, the latest series from Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof. How well did the finale tie up all the ideas? Was Simone and Wiley’s arc a satisfying one? How did the world-building work for us? And is Mrs. Davis some much-needed anti-AI-hype in a world that’s full of hype right now? Listen to hear us discuss all this and more!


Next week we’ll be discussing the first few weeks of Silo on Apple TV+. Will This Week In Streaming cover more after that? That’s up to you. Please let us know what you think of the podcast! Decodingtv@gmail.com.


We’re going to try broadcasting This Week In Streaming live as often as possible, so please do follow us on YouTube and on Twitch and you’ll get notifications whenever we go live.
