Game of Thrones – 304 – And Now His Watch Is Ended

We really enjoyed “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, the latest episode in our summer rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Packed with intellectually satisfying intrigue, as well as one of the more satisfying action scenes in Thrones history, it has something for just about everyone. We ponder the comeuppance of Tywin’s children, the finer points of contract law in Essos, and the altruism of the Tyrells. Plus, a super sized mailbag and the promise of another next week!

Beltalowda – 304 – Reload

“Reload”, the latest installment of SyFy’s The Expanse, is an accurate title for the episode, as the Rocinante gets creative in order to literally reload itself, while our favorite characters spend the episode positioning themselves for their next act, metaphorically reloading the show. Meanwhile, we ask the important questions; what is Red Kibble made of? Why did Amos show up late to the bullet party? And is The Expanse shipping Bobby and Alex?! All this plus lots of feedback including Reddit delivering on the promise of Martian blue grass!

Fargo – 304 – The Narrow Escape Problem

There is a whole lot to ponder in “The Narrow Escape Problem”, the latest episode of FX’s Fargo. Communist propaganda, meditations on the 1%, Joseph Stalin, bulimia, Ewan McGreggor playing a different Ewan McGreggor playing yet another Ewan McGreggor; an Ewan McCeption, if you will, biblical themes, our heads are just spinning. And Gloria with new found gal pal Winnie seem on pace to have this whole thing solved by the next episode. Which probably means the floor’s about to fall out!

Following The Leftovers – 304 – G’Day Melbourne

Jim and A.Ron are struggling to get by in this post-Nora/Kevin romance world. It’s just all almost too much. But are they done for reals? Is there hope for a reunion, or a happy ending for these two, or should we just look for our nearest LADR box and jump in, no questions asked? But there are always questions, aren’t there? Would you kill a twin baby to save the world from cancer? What sort of crazy whitefella adventures are the Kevins going to get up to in the land down under? Will the sun still rise in a post-Mark Linn-Baker world? I guess we’ll just have to keep watching…

Better Cast Saul – 304 – Sabrosito

The latest outing for AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Sabrosito”, offers more intriguing information on our favorite Chicken Brother, Gus Fring, as we go back in time to explore the Eladio Cartel’s internal politics, and the petty jealousies and rivalries that will eventually add up to Fring’s pyrrhic victory over his associates to the South. But we also have some family drama as Jimmy and Chuck continue to wage their cold, legal war against each other. Will the law offices of Wexler and McGill triumph over HHM? My money’s on Victor and Giselle. Also, Mike turns down ice cream, the absolute mad man.
