In the latest episode of SyFy’s The Expanse, “Immolation”, James and Naomi heal their rift, Bobby and Cotyar find a measure of redemption and peace with two very different outcomes, Fred Johnson takes another step forward as a major power broker in the system, and Prax finds out he’s not that guy… but that’s okay because Amos totally is. We also talk about a part of the show that sucks hard core… which is the business part where SyFy wants to cancel the show despite it being the best sci-fi show in the 21st century! #SaveTheExpanse!
Jim and A.Ron are delighted with another suspenseful, well crafted episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.5_kill-process.inc”. Great dialog, great, inventive action, solid acting and exceptional editing come together in one very satisfying package. We’re mid-season and these episodes feel like season finales! What will be coming in the weeks ahead?! Join us again next week to find out!
Jim and A.Ron are floored at the surge of pacing on the back half of this season’s Fargo, as typified in “The Lord of No Mercy”. Shocking events unfold as our hero, the technically challenged Gloria Burgle, goes head to head with the master of cyber sleuthing, VM Varga. Plus, what’s Nikki’s play? Does Emmitt have a change of heart and begin resisting Varga’s take over of his parking lot empire, or does the tragic accident of this episode wash away his humanity for good? Is this week’s frame-job this season’s Fishnado/UFO, or are we in for some more unlikely incidents and coincidence? All this and more in this week’s podcast!
Jim and A.Ron talk about the latest episode of The Leftovers, “Certified”. A very dark, powerful episode that has us rethinking how much sunshine and good feelings the finale is going to allow us to have before everything is said and done. We discuss when Laurie decided on her final course of action, Nora’s beach ball metaphor, the inability of Kevin Sr. to properly judge whether he ends up saving the world, and our thoughts and expectations for the end now that we’re only 2 episodes away. Because happy ending or sad, we’re going to be forced to say goodbye to all these characters we’ve grown to love and care for, and I for one am not ready!
Jim and A.Ron found a lot to like in the latest Better Call Saul, “Off Brand”. The sense of something new, new characters, new directions, old scotch paired with new beginnings. Just a whiff of that “new car smell” coming off the show this week. Plus, we can’t overstate how much fun it is to see Jimmy/Saul in his new role as crappy local TV commercial director guy.
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
After an off-week last Tuesday, Halt and Catch Fire is back to form with episode 6. Jim and Eric sit down to talk about the entire lying Clark family, Bangin’ Bos, and the new horizons for Joe, among other things. As always, there’s a new Tandy Shandy recipe as well.
A.Ron and Cecily cover the latest episode of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, “No Beast So Fierce”. Also, A.Ron does terrible impressions and Cecily recounts the time she was propositioned as a creature of the night at 8:30 in the morning on the mean streets of Indianapolis. Plus feedback!
We discuss the merits of the ABQ’s acting talent and the amazing stunt that Walt pulls to, once again, narrowly escape the clutches of his deserved fate.
A.Ron and Cecily are once in locked up to discuss the latest episode of Orange is the New Black, number 306, “Ching Chang Chong”. In it we discuss the finer points of frito lay cooking, the declining job satisfaction levels of Litchfield employees, impossible beauty standards as seen through the lens of prison sweatshop panty…
