Following The Leftovers – 304 – G’Day Melbourne

Jim and A.Ron are struggling to get by in this post-Nora/Kevin romance world. It’s just all almost too much. But are they done for reals? Is there hope for a reunion, or a happy ending for these two, or should we just look for our nearest LADR box and jump in, no questions asked? But there are always questions, aren’t there? Would you kill a twin baby to save the world from cancer? What sort of crazy whitefella adventures are the Kevins going to get up to in the land down under? Will the sun still rise in a post-Mark Linn-Baker world? I guess we’ll just have to keep watching…

Fargo – 303 – The Law of Non-Contradiction

Jim and A.Ron struggle to wrap their minds around the apparently “useless machine” of an episode of FX’s Fargo, “The Law of Non-Contradiction”. Is the ep an artistic triumph, or ultimately a pointless treadmill of plot? Is Gloria married or divorced? Is she Chief or Old Chief? Was the little android MNSKY a useless failure or scientific breakthrough? Is Thaddeus Mobley really Ennis Stussy or is there a bit more to the story? Join us for discussions of all this and more, along with feedback from our fellow fans.

Better Cast Saul – 304 – Sabrosito

The latest outing for AMC’s Better Call Saul, “Sabrosito”, offers more intriguing information on our favorite Chicken Brother, Gus Fring, as we go back in time to explore the Eladio Cartel’s internal politics, and the petty jealousies and rivalries that will eventually add up to Fring’s pyrrhic victory over his associates to the South. But we also have some family drama as Jimmy and Chuck continue to wage their cold, legal war against each other. Will the law offices of Wexler and McGill triumph over HHM? My money’s on Victor and Giselle. Also, Mike turns down ice cream, the absolute mad man.

Following The Leftovers – 303 – Crazy Whitefella Thinking

?The Leftovers? decides to see what Kevin Sr. has been up to in Australia all this time in the latest episode, “Crazy Whitefella Thinking”. Seems he’s not as keen on the Gospel of Kevin as you’d think he’d be. It’s clear that we’re on course for an epic collision as the various Garveys, Dursts, and Jamison’s start to converge. What flavor of Armageddon do you want? Hell fire or flood?

Fargo – 302 – The Principle of Restricted Choice

FX’s Fargo was very, very good this week, expertly blending the unfathomable pinheadery and sublime comedy that has become the series hallmarks in “The Principle of Restricted Choice”. We talk about the dramatic possibilities of using one actor to play two characters, chat about the ins and outs of “duplicate” bridge, and analyze the symbolism and possibilities of Gloria’s incompatibility with modern technology before opening up the old mailbag and seeing what you all have to say.

Better Cast Saul – 303 – Sunk Costs

“Sunk Costs” is able to perfectly balance the tension in the dueling Mike/Jimmy story lines being juggled on AMC’s Better Call Saul, with clear stakes for both our protagonists as they form powerful alliances and prepare to do battle with worthy foes. Mike’s machinations against Hector offer the most visceral thrills, but Jimmy’s legal battle against his brother promises the most twists and turns. Will Jimmy’s legal license survive? Will his relationship with Kim weather this latest storm?
