It can be hard to cut through the vast television landscape to find the gems that are worth watching.

Bob Thompson, the founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, and a trustee professor of television and popular culture at the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, joins Boston Public Radio every week to suggest his takes on the best and the worst that TV has to offer.

This week, Thompson picked the release of Bernie Sander's public access show, "Bernie Speaks with the Community," for his best, the extensive coverage of the royal baby as his worst, and the new adaption of "Catch-22" on Hulu as his what to watch.
