Jim, A.Ron, and hundreds of listeners grapple with their feelings about the series finale of HBO’s The Leftovers, “The Book of Nora”. Was it good just because it was a work of art that was brilliantly written, expertly acted and shot, and in it’s rigid adherence to ambiguity the most Leftovers Leftovers of all? Was it bad because it answered nothing, or everything, or betrayed characters we cared about or gave short shrift to, or invalidated what we felt about past episodes? The answer, more than usual, rests with the viewer, and everybody’s got thoughts. We try to capture as many as we can. But we also promise to return next week for more! One final podcast before we say goodbye to The Leftovers, forever. If that’s not worth of a Max Richter soundtrack, what the hell is?
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
Lots of character growth in another great episode of Halt and Catch Fire and there are still two episodes left. Can Donna recover from the latest blow to Mutiny? How will Joe handle the death of a friend? And most importantly, can the moth-plagued wardrobe of Cameron hold together long enough to make it to Japan? There’s still plenty of runtime left to get the answers.
A,Ron and Cecily process their shock at learning that Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is being cancelled, and wonder how in the world things are going to be wrapped up, or even if they’ll be wrapped up, in just one more episode. I apologize for the tardiness of this podcast. We’ll have the series finale episode up tomorrow.
