There are SPOILERS ahead!
Tetris (2023) satisfies the nostalgia you feel about the classic game. But it will ignore your desire for historical accuracy. Taron Egerton stars as American businessman Henk Rogers. Rogers makes it his mission to bring this exciting, addictive game to the world. The game’s creator is Alexi Pajitnov, a citizen of the Soviet Union. Can Henk and Alexi defy communism, survive car chases, and let freedom ring?! Like we said, it’s not 100% true to life.
Beware! There are some spoilers for Extrapolations in this episode. Join Jim and A.Ron as they chat about some new and old TV finds. Ted Lasso is in its third season, does this team full of weirdos still tickle our funny bone? Extrapolations is just okay, listen for a full explanation. Bob Odenkirk is a fan favorite actor, will Lucky Hank give him the star vehicle he deserves? And Poker Face is the surprise darling A.Ron was hoping for. Thanks for being a Bald Move supporter!
Jim and A.Ron have a smattering of new and old shows to talk about. Hello Tomorrow has a great cast, but it’s definitely more of a drama than a dark comedy. A.Ron is still trudging through Better Call Saul. And get some details on the not-yet-released show Justified: City Primeval as your hosts discuss their Justified rewatch.
To begin, Jim and A.Ron discuss the news concerning 1899’s cancellation. Netflix will try to fill the 1899-shaped void with their newest project, Kaleidoscope. Giancarlo Esposito stars in the lukewarm Netflix experiment. You can watch the episodes in any order you want…expect you better watch “White” last!
Darth Vader would be pleased with our amount of faith in this show. Andor has its finger on the pulse of a rebellion with grounded characters, high stakes, and cool new ships. Get Jim and A.Ron’s overall impressions and deep dives for the Star Wars show we have been waiting for.
Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, a Roku channel original, was a pleasant surprise. Daniel Radcliffe’s performance is fun and the movie will keep you on your toes. And it’s free with commercials! Donald Glover, the amazing multi-hyphenate, is wrapping up his hit show Atlanta after four decorated seasons. Check out our thoughts in this episode of Off the Clock.
Due to popular demand, we decided to cover Andor for you. Disney+ has both delivered and disappointed on the Star Wars front. But could this be the Star Wars shows we have been waiting for? Did Andor push Jim over the edge? Find out in this episode of Off the Clock.
“Off the Clock” is our weekly premium show where we talk about all the TV we’ve been watching in our free time. One episode per month is also dedicated to discussion of topics voted on by our Patreon supporters.
Off the Clock episodes are going to consist of deep dives from now on. Don’t come to this episode hungry because Jim and A.Ron are talking about The Bear. The prestige drama taking place in a greasy spoon restaurant in Chicago packs a flavorful punch. This show demands your full attention, no background watching, and you won’t regret it. And get a quick preview of Emily the Criminal, Aubrey Plaza’s newest movie.
