Beltalowda – 303 – Assured Destruction

The latest episode of SyFy’s The Expanse, “Assured Destruction” could be subtitled: “When Amos Meets Bobby”, because that happened, and it’s pretty awesome. After that, we have to content ourselves will small potato stuff like interplanetary nuclear brinksmanship, child experimentation, evil admirals, and the deaths of millions.  Snooze! Then things pick back up when Alex makes Naomi some love lasagna. We also got some interesting feedback from actual jet pilots and physicists among others to take us and The Expanse to some light task about our discussion of high G and Amos related physics. I don’t care what the scientists say, Amos can defy gravity.  See ya next week!

Fargo – 303 – The Law of Non-Contradiction

Jim and A.Ron struggle to wrap their minds around the apparently “useless machine” of an episode of FX’s Fargo, “The Law of Non-Contradiction”. Is the ep an artistic triumph, or ultimately a pointless treadmill of plot? Is Gloria married or divorced? Is she Chief or Old Chief? Was the little android MNSKY a useless failure or scientific breakthrough? Is Thaddeus Mobley really Ennis Stussy or is there a bit more to the story? Join us for discussions of all this and more, along with feedback from our fellow fans.

Following The Leftovers – 303 – Crazy Whitefella Thinking

?The Leftovers? decides to see what Kevin Sr. has been up to in Australia all this time in the latest episode, “Crazy Whitefella Thinking”. Seems he’s not as keen on the Gospel of Kevin as you’d think he’d be. It’s clear that we’re on course for an epic collision as the various Garveys, Dursts, and Jamison’s start to converge. What flavor of Armageddon do you want? Hell fire or flood?

Better Cast Saul – 303 – Sunk Costs

“Sunk Costs” is able to perfectly balance the tension in the dueling Mike/Jimmy story lines being juggled on AMC’s Better Call Saul, with clear stakes for both our protagonists as they form powerful alliances and prepare to do battle with worthy foes. Mike’s machinations against Hector offer the most visceral thrills, but Jimmy’s legal battle against his brother promises the most twists and turns. Will Jimmy’s legal license survive? Will his relationship with Kim weather this latest storm?

Penny Earful – 303 – “Good and Evil Braided Be”

Cecily and A.Ron are very impressed with the latest episode of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, “Good and Evil Braided Be”. Full of intra-vampiral intrigue, our favorite werewolf being possibly bewitched by Hecate (with the good hair), surprising revelations and connections to characters and their histories, and an intriguing — and bloody — proto-feminist plot for world dominance, there’s a lot to like and talk about. Join us for a discussion of the episode with a little help from feedback from our fellow fans!
