Courtney and Pete connect the dots of the subtle details in Bit By a Dead Bee. Walt takes notice of a painting that is mundane in appearance, but rich in sub-textual story. The very same painting appears in several episodes across Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. As Walt further traumatizes his family with his “fugue state”, Hank descends on Jesse with an avenging force. Could Walt turn this boat around? What does the painting mean? And will Wendy ever get her root beer?
What has Walter been up to? And did he have anything to do with the discovery of Adam’s body? Is the Wilderness trying to move Coach Ben out of the way? And you can’t ask about Caligula anymore, ok?? Find out who is on the other side of that phone number and what it means when A.Ron says, “Goats are mouth curious.”
The identity of the Antler Queen is still a mystery, but maybe not for long. Misty and Randy get up to some hijinks involving a Dremel and Fanta. That makes for light comedy compared to laying Jackie’s bones to rest. As Tai continues to sleepwalk, Jim and A.Ron wonder how many versions of Tai are within her mind. And finally, what we’re all wondering; will they eat Coach before he wastes away to nothing?
This week we take a look at Big Dick Anderson’s Magnum Opus, MacGyver. MacGyver was James Bond with Bill Nye the Science Guy sensibilities, and when Jim heard he was the subject of our next Feeny, he had to join. This is a great introduction to the character and his schtick, as Mac has to travel to an underground bunker that has suffered a catastrophic bombing, and now threatens to leak powerful acids into the local water table. It’s up to Mac, with a busted pair of binocs, some chocolate bars, a gram or two of pure sodium, and a few cold capsules to save the day. As a bonus, I tell the tale of how MacGyver nearly blinded a kid back in the third grade!
Mando completes the ritual to be a recognized Mandalorian again, but that doesn’t mean he’s free from problems. There are whispers of Moff Gideon’s alleged escape. Bo-Katan wavers on her personal beliefs. And someone is collecting junk heap urinal cakes. This episode begs the question…is this just another backdoor pilot??
This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”
