Fargo – 209 – “The Castle”

Where you come down on Fargo’s latest episode, “The Castle”, and perhaps the season as a whole, entirely hinges on whether you swallow the final act. We did not, and thus are in the uncomfortable position of not liking and yet still admiring Noah Hawley’s bold experiment in television. Hopefully some of our concerns will evaporate by the time the finale episode is over next week, but if not, we promise we’ll be here with some pod therapy.

Following The Leftovers – 209 – Ten Thirteen

Jim and A.Ron were blown away by the twist at the end of The Leftovers episode “Ten Thirteen”, which we probably should have seen coming. Kind of amazing that you can pull something like that off with millions of people obsessing and collaborating over the internet, but welcome to The Leftovers! We do a deep dive on Meg and her motivations and her spin on the Guilty Remnant, her epic show down with Matt, what is going on in Tommy’s head, what’s she using plastic explosives for, tons of listener feedback, and speculate on just where are we heading towards in what will no doubt be an epic screwjob of a season finale next week. We can’t wait!

Breaking Good – 209 – 4 Days Out

In this episode 209 of Breaking Bad, “4 Days Out”, we find Jesse and Walt stranded in the boonies, undergoing a long dark tea time of the soul. We discuss homemade batteries, this episode as the fulcrum of the entire series, Saul’s lack of bedside manner, Walt’s shattered reflection, and Jr’s epic flipped bird. All this, your feedback, a healthy spoiler section, and much more.
