Better Call Saul - S06E13 – Saul Gone

It’s high stakes, high rewards in the series finale of Better Call Saul. Will Jimmy escape the consequences of his actions? Will he come clean and learn from his mistakes? And will Alexis spend her next birthday at Red Lobster? Join us for the podcast to find out the answers to these questions, as well as what we thought of the episode, Saul Gone.

Watching Westworld - S04E08 – Que Será, Será

Whether you’re mourning or celebrating this season, tune in for Jim and A.Ron’s lively discussion on the season finale. In the words of Dylan Thomas, we’re asking this show “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against what this new acquisition might do to you.” If it doesn’t get a season 5, just could consider this show on a recursive loop.

Department of Homelander Security - S03E08 – The Instant White Hot Wild

Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan Edgar go?! Next season looks like it might be a return to a similar place as Season 2.

Dungeons and Demogorgons - 409 – Nine: The Piggyback

That was a metalhead finale we can cheer for. It came down to the wire and Eleven’s arms were extending while she screamed, of course. BUT the Duffer Brothers delivered a gut punch that made us remember why we love this show. While Jim is condemning pineapple pizza to The Upside Down, A.Ron is happy to report that this episode delivers in stakes, pacing, and surprises. 

We Own This City - S01E06 – Part Six

David Simon ends his statement in a finale that leaves us both heartbroken and hopeful. The bad guys in blue are behind bars, but that’s not enough. The current broken system will churn out more. Does Jenkins, and people like him, truly realize that they are part of the problem? How far can this situation push until it breaks people like Nicole Steele? It makes us ask the question, what does it mean to truly do good and create a justice system based on rehabilitation and redemption?

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell – Feedback

The magnetic containment unit experienced core meltdown, and the feedback is smoking. With the madness of this season it’s no surprise your feedback covers the gamut from bad borg face effects to the nonsensical character arc closures. What do we want in season three? A full cast reunion sharing a scene together. We don’t want Patrick Stewart to catch covid, but when else are we going to have the chance to see this?
Hailing frequencies are going dark. We’re not planning Picard Season 3 episode coverage. But if you want to hear us talk about it, consider supporting us to gain access to our premium Off the Clock episodes.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell

Set phasers to mildly entertained. There were a few good moments sprinkled amongst the madness. Q and Picard’s relationship comes to a somewhat satisfying end with Picard now unshackled from his past decisions. The road getting here was rough, but was it worth the journey? And A.Ron has been cured of Jurati syndrome. Thank you for all the sympathy cards.
Picard Season 3 episode by episode coverage is TBD. Who’s looking forward to the reunion next season?
Integrity of the magnetic containment unit is deteriorating. Power crystals might last for one final episode. Send in your feedback to picard@baldmove.com.

Severance, Everything Everywhere All At Once – Off the Clock

Listener beware, there be SPOILERS ahead. What’s a Lynchian show about innies and outies, but has nothing to do with belly buttons? All jokes aside about Apple TV+, Severance is actually pretty damn cool. Jim and A.Ron discuss the fault lines forming in Lumon’s facade and in the severed minds of the workers. The scifi premise of the show creates the potential for philosophy behind these bizarre scenes, and yes even those strange, strange waffle parties.

Speaking of unique workplaces, A.Ron and Jim’s working on their backup business plan where they stick googly eyes on toilet plungers. They’re looking for investors.  And while we’re talking about googly eyes, we’ve got a review for the all-new, all-amazing Everything Everywhere All At Once.

The Expanse - S06E06 – Babylon’s Ashes

The series finale delivers on nearly all fronts with some great action, some precious final moments between the characters we’ve come to love, and a promising conclusion for Inyalowda / Beltalowda relations. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on perhaps the best sci-fi series ever made. (We go into that)
