Halt and Catch Fire – 307 – The Threshold

It’s a doozy of a final board room scene in this episode of HACF, and not everyone leaves unscathed. One of the two hosts of this podcast thought this was the best episode of the show yet, and one of us…disagreed. Regardless, between the passive aggressive drama, Boz breaking down, and the Joe-like machinations of (mastermind?) Gordon, the stage is set for a rip-roarin’ final three episodes. Color us excited!

Halt and Catch Fire – 305 – Yerba Buena

The season may have just hit a bottleneck at the halfway point. We discuss the seesaw nature of the characters as we try to pin down the root cause of our dissatisfaction with the episode. Does Joe have HIV? Is Cameron married or just engaged? What is this week’s Tandy Shandy recipe? Join us while we discuss episode 305… after all, It’s always a bad idea to bet against openness.

Penny Earful – 309 – “The Blessed Dark”

A.Ron and Cecily are sharply divided on their opinions for the series shotgun finale, episode 309, “The Blessed Dark”. A.Ron would have preferred a more open ended finale that didn’t try to make half-assed an attempt to bring the series to an epic and apocalyptic conclusion, while Cecily appreciates the creative jam the team was apparently other and is thankful that they made the best of the situation they had at hand. Regardless of our personal feelings, this is the end for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, and we the television watching public are the poorer for it. What did you think? We’ll be back next week to mourn our loss and ponder that what ifs with you and all our fellow fans as we wrap up our coverage of the series. See you then.
