A.Ron and Jim check out the latest on USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.2_legacy.so”. A Tyrell centered episode that A.Ron doesn’t hate? It’s a Halloween miracle! We discuss our growing love for Irving, the mostly successful retconning and course correction this episode brings retro-actively to season two, and much more!
A.Ron and Jim have seen the latest episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.1_undo.gz”, and after downing some Zoloft, feel prepared to discuss it.

Jim and A.Ron discuss the premier of season 3 of USA’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.0_power-saver-mode.h”. We’re glad to see Mr. Robot return with an intriguing, plot forwarding episode that is a pleasure to watch. We really enjoyed newcomer Bobby Canavale’s turn as the sleazy fixer Irving, we’re loving the more bold hints of sci-fi wackadoo stuff to come, and the new relationships between Mr. Robot, Eliot, Angela and Darlene. Can’t wait for more, and to find out what everyone else thinks!

Season three of FX’s Fargo has proven to be another polarizing season among the fan base, and for once, we’re on the sweet side of it! We loved the ambiguity and economic and political themes this year, and thought the villain was one of the all time greats. And quite a few more people last week agreed with us, but there are still a lot of people that hate it. I don’t think I can move you from one camp to another, but if you’re on the fence? Maybe we can help you do what we know you want to do, which is love Fargo. That’s what this wrap up is about, explaining the inexplicable, embracing uncertainty, and advocating for personal responsibility in a world full of people shrugging with their hands in their pockets. Speaking of ambiguity, we’re not sure when Fargo will be back, if it’s back at all, but we hope to see you soon because Bald Move is here to stay, aiding your enjoyment of the finest and most fun television and movies. So… see you around? You betcha!
Jim and A.Ron gather for a final time to say good bye until next time to AMC’s Better Call Saul. And, we know it’s just until next time because AMC picked up the show for a fourth season. Huzzah! With that out of the way, we reconsider our opinions on season three, look ahead at how this season will impact the characters moving forward, debate about how the show has gone up til now, talk about mental health, and get an extraordinary amount of feedback to consider form our fellow fans. See you next year!
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
FX’s Fargo season three draws to a close, with the finale episode, “Somebody to Love”. In a dramatic twist, everyone who loved season two, which was everyone but Jim and I, absolutely hated this finale. And yet, the only two people in the known universe that didn’t see season two as a triumph, which, again, us two, loved and liked it respectively. What the darn tootin’ heck is going on here, anyway? We found this season of Fargo very much of the time, and appreciated the fact that it allowed us to decide how the plot would resolve, and what to believe, and therefore to look at the world optimistically or fatalistically. Plus, Wrench is just too frigging cool. We hope everyone who disliked the season will write in and help us understand your pain, and the so far silent admirers will come to our aid, as we have one more week to wrap up the show and our coverage for season three before we, like Varga, fade into the shadows.
Season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul is in the books with the finale episode, “Lantern”. The show is really on fire this season. As confirmed #F&%@Chuck supporters, we’re delighted to see Chuck get roasted, which left a warm and toasty feeling in our hearts. Some plot points and character details might seemed burnt out, but we think the Villigang is just blowing smoke our direction to distract us. We are all hot for what seems like an inevitable Nacho / Gus team up, maybe they can hash out the details at an ABQ BBQ to benefit local fire fighters? And while Kim and Jimmy’s chemistry isn’t as smoldering as we would like, Patrick Fabians performance is searing as Howard burns his bridges with Chuck who goes down in flames. If they keep turning up the heat, who knows how scorching this show can get?!
