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’!”
Both the show-only fans and the game players have filled the feed bag to the brim. Let’s dive into your burning questions. Is Ellie a psychopath? Do food inspection agencies not check flour at all?!

David and John take a break from the horrors of The Last of Us, the latest hit from HBO, to visit their friends Bill and Frank. After praising the boldness of Season One, Episode 3 – Long, Long Time, David and John recap a story of love in the middle of chaos.
As if a zombie apocalypse wasn’t enough, the characters of The Last of Us need to learn to navigate emotionally stunted relationships, too. Jim and A.Ron explore Billville with everyone’s favorite sad-man, Nick Offerman. Get your usual coverage of The Last of Us along with a dose of good and bad news in The Last of Us universe.
David and John discuss Of the Beginning of Days, Tolkien’s mythology on the beginning of light and time in Arda. After discussing the war with Melkor and the marring of Middle-earth, David and John begin their case against the leadership of Manwë. Finally, they answer listener feedback.
Take a big gulp of elf juice before diving into episode three feedback. Lore-bombs are going off with the addition to show-only characters.

Full bellies, rolling caravans, and epic horse riding for the ages. Between the great visuals, fully developed languages, and fun with the Harfoots, we’re ramping up to the halfway point of this season.

We know that you’re still processing the trauma of Season 8 of GOT, but don’t let that and the time jumps freak you out. Resident Lore Master A.Ron says we haven’t even gotten to the juicy stuff yet.
