The long awaited sophomore season of HBO’s Westworld returns this weekend, and we’ve been champing at the bit. We discuss the open questions from last season, the tantalizing glimpses of the future we’ve seen from the trailers so far, and discuss upcoming format changes and our policy on spoilers and speculation. Why is William’s past still relevant to the story? What is the door, and how are we supposed to find it? Are Dolores and Maeve running diametrically opposed armies? What is Delos up to with their secret project? Is a robot searching for it’s artificial daughter any more sad and pointless than anything we do in our day to day lives? Why or why not? These and many more questions are entertained as we await answers!
Jim and A.Ron talk about the upcoming season three of SyFy’s The Expanse. We talk about our experience with the show (and Jim’s recent experience reading the first three books in the series by James S. A. Corey) and our thoughts about where we left off last season and where we think we’re headed. Other topics include our spoiler policy, our favorite characters, the Rocinante’s power level, and much more.
Jim and I will be back for the back half of season 8 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Whether that is exciting or depressing is very much up to the individual, but it’s a fact, so today we’re previewing the next 8 episodes. What do we think about Gimple’s promotion? Is Carl really going to die? What did we think of the pre-season trailers and marketing? And who lives and who dies this season? We contemplate all this and more. See you Sunday night for the LiveWatch!
Jim and A.Ron get hyped for season two of Netflix’s Stranger Things!

Send it in to the links below and we’ll consider it on our season two wrap up podcast!

See you this weekend!…
Jim and A.Ron consider some listener for the upcoming season of Game of Thrones! The first half of the episode is spoiler free, but the back half we delve into the depths of the books to mine for hints, secrets, and lore!

Here’s a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic. Each link has a time code listed so you can jump right to the tinfoil topic of the week for your convenience and listening pleasure.

All this and more is discussed. See you next week for the premiere!
A.Ron and Jim try to puzzle out the big “mystery” from last season; who does Negan beat the ever-loving piss out of?

We’ll be back next Monday with our full coverage of the premiere episode!
