A Mr. Robot episode without Mr. Robot? Can such a thing actually be allowed to happen, and if it does, will anyone enjoy the result? The answer, actually, is yes.

We discuss karaoke, Mr. Robots influence on and by The Leftovers, what is up with Angela? no seriously, what is up with Angela?, Darlene finding her dark side, and we explode pacemaker theories. All this, tons of great feedback, and more Duck Phillips jokes than you can shake a stick at, coming your way.
This was going to be the Casino edition of On the Rocks but I realized too late that I didn’t have bitters and my lemons had gone bad. That’s what I get for not shopping after vacation. So sit back with some sipping whiskey and join us for this straight edition of On the Rocks.
Jim and A.Ron are thrilled to be back for a sneaky good episode 107 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “You Win or You Die”. Featuring the impressive debut of Daddy Lannister, a thrilling inspirational (before it gets scary) speech by Drogo, and more scheming, machinations, and back stabbing than you can shake a bundle of rushes at. Classic Game of Thrones, basically. All that, plus super-sized mailbags of both the unspoiled and spoiler variety, coming your way.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a warm, fuzzy Forest-Gumpian tale of a deadbeat dad and his deadbeat dad son. Fincher’s take on this (very loose) F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation is a departure of sorts from his thriller-tinged canon thus far. This is Fincher at his most romantic, and even still he manages to…

Mr. Robot gets meta in episode 206, “eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes”. Maybe even too meta. A.Ron and Jim debates the merits of the unconventional opening of the episode. We also discuss the wisdom of script kiddies, the competency of the FBI, and examine the operation of a kidney dialysis machine.
It’s a pre-vacation lunch with everything that implies; basically nothing.
