Jim and A.Ron are delighted with another suspenseful, well crafted episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.5_kill-process.inc”. Great dialog, great, inventive action, solid acting and exceptional editing come together in one very satisfying package. We’re mid-season and these episodes feel like season finales! What will be coming in the weeks ahead?! Join us again next week to find out!
Jim and A.Ron were blown away by the latest real time “oner” episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.4_runtime-err0r.r00”. We think the technique was employed skillfully here, increasing the drama, tension, and immediacy. We’re also left with a lot of questions regarding the state of Stage 2, Angela’s relative hacking skills, the nature of Mr. Robot’s relationship with Elliot, and we’d love to know exactly what Darlene is up to, and how much of her plan the FBI has signed off on. More answers surely to come, but this was a fun ride!
USA’s Mr. Robot continues to tease out the plot for season three, as all the major players are keeping things pretty close to the vest as the circle each other, testing loyalties, telling version of the truth they think people want to hear, and sniffing for betrayals. We break down some of the most popular theories for what White Rose is cooking up with the Dark Army, talk about the possible fate of Darlene, and discuss if we’re sure we have it nailed down exactly when Elliot is Elliot and when he’s Mr. Robot. Could there be a third identity at play? We also consider some feedback on economics before signing off until next week!
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. Topics include A.Ron’s new TOTTDAB scale, the stunning development with Joanna, the identity of the f-society faker, Mr. Robot’s birthday, the latest installment of the ARG, feedback, and much more!
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!
Jim and A.Ron talk about their thoughts and feelings for the last three episodes of Rick and Morty, and try to place the third season in overall R&M perspective, before going long on their thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery.
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!
