Jim and A.Ron consider “Who Won the Week?” between The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Fargo before Cecily crashes the studio and wraps up the season, and series, for HBO’s Girls (00:10:31).
FX’s Fargo is back for it’s third season, and it’s visually exciting and is chock full of colorful characters played by gifted actors and we’re all having a lot of fun. But it’s also the exact same Fargo formula we’ve seen in the movie and in two seasons of the show. Is that a problem, and if it is, what will the series offer as a change or curveball this year, especially give that we weren’t all that thrilled with the UFO twist of season two? Aw, jeez. In the meantime, we discuss “The Law of Vacant Places”, brush up on the rules of Bridge, and make sure our air conditioners are properly secured before considering a bit of feedback. See you next week!
In the latest episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, the tables are turned as Jimmy becomes Mike’s private investigator as he continues to try to unravel the mysterious “DON’T” message writer. Tables are later flipped as Chuck employs his own private investigators in an elaborate scheme to unravel Jimmy. Basically, this episode is all unraveling and private eyes.
We are thrilled that HBO’s The Leftovers are back, and in fine form. Three years after the battle for Jardin is over, our favorite characters are still grappling with what to believe and what is real, with mysteries old and new. From the opening historical drama of The Great Disappointment to the enigmatic ending, it did nothing but confirm that this is one of the smartest, most beautiful shows around and that we are in for one hell of a ride. All this, feedback, and a very light spoiler section at the very end of the podcast, coming right up.
With A.Ron on vacation, I’m joined by Eric from Personal Arrogants and Direct to cover the season 3 premiere of the most effortlessly gripping show on television. We speculate about the various plans put in motion this episode and where it’s all going, the final fate of Jimmy / Saul / Gene and devise a new spin-off for the Breaking Bad universe.
Jim and A.Ron are fired up for the final season of HBO’s The Leftovers. We discuss the timeline, hints and previews from the season trailers, Noah’s Ark and how it might relate to this season, A.Ron and Jim trading roles as Man of Faith and Man of Science, and much, much more.
Jim and A.Ron say goodbye once again to AMC’s The Walking Dead, but first, we have some things to get off our chest and a ton of feedback from our fellow fans to share. What lane does the Dead need to stay in? How long can it last? How big a star is Andrew Lincoln, anyway? Will the War with Negan last 8 episodes, or 16? Just how many episodes of Trash People backstory will we be inflicted with? Should Gimple and company just let Heath go? All this and more will be discussed!
Special preview! Fake news, oppressive patriarchy, and an overall impending sense of doom: Join “Aunt” Kelly Anneken and Molly “Ofmitchell” Sanchez as we discuss this and more in Red All Over, a podcast based on The Handmaid’s Tale and weirdly not on current events.
Jim and A.Ron are getting ready for season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul, by reviewing the advance material and last year’s continuing plots. What will Chuck do with Jimmy’s confession tape? Who is trying to come between Mike and his vengeance, and why? Can Jimmy and Kim find a way to work together in their separate but equal law firm? When will Gus rear his handsome, mild-mannered head? All this and more is discussed. See you next week for the premiere!
This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”
