Is Summer TV Any Good?

On this week’s episode of “The Vulture TV Podcast,” we discuss the two latest entrants in the traditionally “off” TV season — UnREAL, Lifetime’s new scripted drama about the brutal world of reality-TV production, is already a Vulture favorite; while we’re more divided on The Whispers, ABC’s supernatural drama about possessed children. And how’s the summer TV season shaping up in general? “We’re in for a pretty good ‘stories about women’ summer,” says Margaret.

Note: This episode contains spoilers.

Further reading: Margaret Lyons on UnREAL and The Whispers; reality-TV producer Seth Grossman on what UnREAL gets right (and wrong); our summer TV preview.
