This is the last installment of Bald Move’s 1899 coverage and we have some answers to big questions! It was nothing like we expected, which means it was exactly what we expected. In the spirit of the creators it was a timey-wimey, mind-bending web that Jim and A.Ron try to untangle for you. Jump in and listen to the theories and remaining questions.
As more character backstories are revealed, we get some questions answered. But don’t worry, we still have plenty of questions and theories to discuss. Have these people been experimented on? Are you, the audience, being experimented on? Is the mind a prison? Or is the mind imprisoned? What else floats out there on the vast ocean?
Inexplicable. Creepy. Foggy. Bodies keep piling up, factions are formed, and Jim still hasn’t noticed the triangle pupils. Are these vanishing cabinets? Is everyone dead? What happened to these people? We may not know what’s going on, but count us entertained!
A dense fog sits on the water as you stand on the bow of a creaking ship. Footsteps approach from behind! Out of the fog emerges Captain A.Ron and First Mate Jim. They’re here to break down the show 1899 from the creators of Dark. Get a rundown of the characters, overview of the plot of the first two episodes, and a beginning to theory crafting that is sure to get out of hand.
In the distant past of 1990s Earth, the world of For All Mankind wrapped up its third season. With two new showrunners on the horizon and season that was…let’s say a mixed bag, we’ve got feedback with love and distaste for the show. Coverage of season 4 is TBD, so in the meantime, check out more of our Prestige episodes!
With a satisfying conclusion to a rocky season, Jim and A.Ron are here to break down their favorite and not-so-favorite moments of the season finale. A.Ron rescinds his previous “jumped the shark” analysis. With one great scene after another, the conclusion of this season came as an emotional gut punch. After that ending, A.Ron and Jim are looking forward to next season.
Big Internet points to whoever predicted this episode’s turn of events. We get payoffs, time jumps that make us ask “What happened to Sergei?”, and we get a glimpse at the very real consequences of further automating our businesses and lives. It’s a packed episode and we’re looking forward to the next.
We’re back for another round of your feedback. We’ll have at least one more of these after the finale so send your feedback in to email@example.com.
The feels are running high in this episode. Sympathy for Danny? Believe it or not, you’ll feel it! Russians crying over American counterparts? It’ll tug your heartstrings. The eggheads get their badass moments to shine which confirms our personal theory that nerds are cool too.
What is being brought down? The reputation of the American Government? We’re doing that in this reality too, hey-o! Starting out with opposing views, Jim and A.Ron take you through an episode where not enough shoes drop and the chaos grows. If you feel the need to respond to Jim’s scorching hot take on the cute puppy/irritating noise machine, you can scream at him at firstname.lastname@example.org about cyber puppy crimes.
