A.Ron, Cecily, and Jim meditate on the ending of HBO’s The Young Pope. What to make of Lenny? How do we feel about the attempted humanization of a pedophile priest? Are we good, or are we bad? The only thing we’re sure of? We’re breathing the same air.
A.Ron and Jim are very pleased with how the violent delights over season one would up having violent ends in the finale episode for Westworld, “The Bicameral Mind”. Sure, maybe the first third of the episode was merely review for a class that has studied their podcasts and their reddit. But once Hector and Armistice got their hands on the P90s, it was pedal to the metal until the conclusion that we found extremely satisfying. Not only that, it setup season two so well that it’s almost criminal that we’ll have to wait until 2018 to find out more. But you won’t have to wait that long for Watching Westworld, we’ll be back next week for a wrap up podcast where we’ll consider your ideas for next season, including theories, thoughts on consciousness and sentience, casting suggestions, and who knows what else. See you then!
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.
Welcome to our coverage of the final episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Fire and Blood”. This episode provides a bit of both substances. We talk about the surprising success of Dany’s little ritual, a shockingly spry Grand Maester, the promise of an epic ranging of the Night’s Watch, and Robb being proclaimed DA KING IN DA NORFFF!! by his loyal bannermen. Not to mention tons of feedback, and our spoiler section safely tucked at the end of our podcast to avoid the ruination of future episodes for the first time fans.
Jim and A.Ron sign off of Better Call Saul on our coverage of the finale episode, number 110 entitled “Marco”… We discuss our changing perceptions of Chuck and Hamlin, Jimmy’s Cicero week o’ scams, pinky rings, and parking lot based changes of heart. Along the way, we consider a ton of great feedback, and towards the end, consider Better Call Saul’s place alongside it’s big brother, Breaking Bad. Perhaps a bit premature, but the fact that we can have an interesting conversation at this point is high praise all by itself, no? Thanks for a great first season, we’ve had a blast, and we can’t wait to catch up to Jimmy next year.
Starts approximately at 1pm EST!
The first season of FX’s Fargo is in the books, and what an impressive rookie season it was. A.Ron and Jim have some small quibbles about the finale, but overall are impressed. Next week we come back for a season one wrap up cast. Let us know what you thought!
It’s time to close the doors on Series One of Mr. Selfridge–we think. It’s possible that Jeremy Piven has been running around, setting all the clocks five minutes ahead.
