Mr. Robot – 308 – eps3.7_dont-delte-me.ko

USA Network’s Mr. Robot offers us a quieter, more introspective, but no less fascinating episode this week.  A possible turning point for the series and our protagonist, as told through a meditation on suicide and death as seen through the lens of deletion.  And if the material didn’t grab you, my god, the visuals.  Sam goes all out and widens the scope to “Cinema” both literally and stylistically offering us one lush and well crafted scene after another.  Just two more episodes to come, what can Esmail and company do to keep raising the narrative and artistic stakes?  See you next week to find out!

LWJ&A – 12/01/2017

Merry Culkin Keatmas everyone!  This week kicks off our 2017 Christmas celebration which includes drinks, three movies and a very special gift to be released on Christmas eve.  We also talk about A.Ron’s german Christmas festival experience, our Christmas lighting setups and much more.

Watching Dead – 806 – The King, The Widow and Rick

Jim and A.Ron are not sure whether to laugh or cry with the latest from AMC’s The Walking Dead, “The King, The Widow, and Rick”.  On the one hand, this is a garbage show, now populated with literally, for real, garbage people.  On the other hand, Rosita vaporized a guy with a rocket launcher.  In a warehouse.  From 30 feet away.  That’s garbage, but it’s funny garbage.  We break down this fiasco as per usual with supporting fire from our fellow fans in the feedback section.  

Mr. Robot – 307 – eps3.6_fredrick+tanya.chk

Jim and A.Ron agree that this latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “Eps3.6fredrick&tanya.chk”, was pretty good, but on little else beyond that.  We are in violent disagreement over the direction of Angela and Tyrell, but that just makes for an exciting podcast where naked hostility seems to be lying in wait around every corner.  But whether or not you think Tyrell is an actual human or if Angela is a horrifying baby person suddenly, there is a lot to talk about and discuss.  White Rose dunks on Phillip, Leon blazes up to Knight Rider,  Irving tells Mr. Robot how it is, beautifully filmed desert vistas that would bring a tear to even Vince Gilligan’s eye, and we get closure on Trenton and Mobley.  All great stuff, and it puts the show in fine shape as it heads into the seasons final act.  See you next week!

Watching Dead – 805 – The Big Scary U

On this episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “The Big Scary U”, Gabriel hears Negan’s confession, Rick and possibly a live wildcat standing in for Daryl hit a rough patch while debating the meaning of “All Out War”, while the Council of Idiots decides what to do in the absence of their Dear Leader. And feedback.  And a bit of spoiler section!  Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Americans, and we’ll see you and the rest of the world next week!
