Melody Patterson, who played “Wrangler Jane” Angelica Thrift on the Old West comedy F Troop, died on Friday at age 66.

The actress’ TV credits also included appearances on The Monkees, Green Acres, Adam-12 and the original Hawaii Five-0.

3 February 2015 11:35 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Between finales, pilots, and premieres, there’s plenty of TV to talk about this week on the podcast. First we look at the week in comedy, including Key & Peele’s Superbowl special and a contentious Man Seeking Woman. Then Kate looks at some genre before Simon joins her to discuss The 100, and we round out our week with the dramas, including the series finale of Parenthood, the pilot of Fortitude, and the long-awaited season premiere of The Americans. Afterward, Emmy Award winner (and current writer for The Simpsons) Michael Price returns to join Kate at the DVD Shelf to discuss multi-cam comedy and two classics of the genre, The Phil Silvers Show (aka Sgt. Bilko) and F Troop.
