Day three of our Stranger Things marathon continues! We’re back, and so is Eleven (or I suppose we’re going to have to get used to Jane, yeah) as she makes a connection to a long lost sister.
Jim and A.Ron consider “A Man Without Honor”, the latest season two episode on our re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones. This episode is about revealing the true characters of people like Jamie, Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin, Shae, Sansa, and Robb, and the thing you take away is that these are all people, multifaceted, conflicting, contradictory, but in a way that feels human and real. And Dany, is you know… looking for her dragons.
Jim and A.Ron breakdown the latest shocking (?) reveal on Mr. Robot as we discuss episode 207, “eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme”.
In episode 207 of Netflix’s Daredevil, “Semper Fidelis”, Foggy and Karen fight for Frank’s freedom, while Matt abandons his friends and client to pursue the larger goal of keeping Hell’s Kitchen safe. Foggy and Karen have some things to say about that, and it’s pretty glorious. At the same time, Matt seems concerned that he’s inching ever closer to the “one bad day” that the Punisher warned him was in his future, where the lines between justice and vengeance blur and become unrecognizable. Also, Daredevil and Elektra discover a giant hole. What’s up with that? All this a bunch of feedback from your fellow fans. See you Monday for more!
Episode 207 of AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Inflatable”, was the best of Jimmy, and the worst of Jimmy. While his colorful sabotage of the corporate, buttoned down Davis and Main firm was entertaining, and the sabotage/montage a masterful edit by Insider Podcaster Kelley Dixon, it was at the expense of some genuinely good people. And while it’s wonderful that Mike can provide a comfortable and safe lifestyle for his daughter and law and granddaughter, we know it eventually sets up a situation which forces the doting Mike to abandon them both. Lots of mixed and poignant feelings in this one. Plus, we get lots of feedback as people put on their theory hats and give us their best shots.
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.
“Did You Do This? No, You Did It!” I think we’ll both take the credit/blame for this latest podcast on Fargo… Lots of stuff to talk about, from Simone’s tragic end, to Mike Milligan’s desperate gamble, to Mama Gerhardt’s turning snitch, Lou triumphant, and say, what the heck has Peggy, Ed, Dodd and Hanzee been up to during this episode? Lots of phone calls and a few dead bodies is all we know, hopefully we’ll catch up with them in the weeks ahead. All this plus some stellar (ha!) feedback from our fellow fans. If this isn’t a good podcast then, well, I’ll cut off my big toe!
Another Sunday, another mind blowing episode of television, as The Leftovers introduces “A Most Powerful Adversary”. We talk about the journey Kevin embarks upon this episode, how we feel about Nora’s abandonment and Jill’s return to last season’s form, Inferno connections, and much more. All this and a ton of feedback… the wait for Sunday is going to be painful
Another solid episode prompts us to talk about Season 2’s pacing, the trail of blue diamonds, the fate of the central characters and what a Season 3 starring Jim Carrey might look like.
Jim and A.Ron break down another great episode of Breaking Bad, episode 207, “Negro y Azul”. We discuss narcocorrido music, how many theories were spawned by the “Ballad of Heisenberg”, the nature of Jane and Jesse, and Skyler and Ted’s relationship, and explore the concept of Hank’s panic attacks being a hidden strength instead of an obvious weakness. All this, plus lots of questioning Pinkman fashion, lots of fan feedback, and a robust spoiler section. Enjoy!
