Bald Move TV – The Romanoffs – 101 & 102 – The Violet Hour & The Royal We

It’s been three years since Don Draper and Peggy Olson left our televisions, and now Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is back with something to say? Is it good, is it bad, is it something even worth saying? After seeing 180 minutes of his new series, The Romanoffs, we’re still oddly divided on answering those basic questions. It’s beautiful, and thoughtful, and at times absorbing, but are the disconnected lives of eight (perhaps delusional) offspring of the fallen House Romanov interesting enough to merit our attention? Over the next seven weeks we’ll see what we make of it together!

Beltalowda – 308 – It Reaches Out

SyFy’s Amazon’s The Expanse this week takes a turn for the surreal in the tense, amazing episode “It Reaches Out” that will have you desperate for the next one. The episode practically drips with mystery and meaning that we’ll eventually understand (What does the protomolecule want with Holden and the Rocinante, and why is it reaching out 113 times per second? Who stands to benefit from framing the OPA for the Seung Un atrocity? Are Melba and Cohen working together, and to what end?) but for now… you got to watch your doors and corners, kid.
