"Showstopper" addresses how music supervisors make great music make TV even better.

This episode explores our favorite show. And yes, the music folks are just as obssessed with realism as the rest of the showrunners.

They discuss the design of the title music, the main character themes, and then go deep on music choices for each episode.

Best to tidbit: Pete Townsend of the Who wrote a song just for the show.

Spotted this on Twitter today.

'Because every great show deserves a great parody' (per the Exec. writer/producer), the comedy website Funny or Die has released season 1 of 'The Canadians,' about two American spies living undercover in Canada with their daughter Paper and their son who appears only with a big question mark over his face in the opening credits, but otherwise never appears in any episodes.

Each 'episode' is 2-3 minutes long. It's all quite hilarious.
