Yo-ho, yo-ho, it’s a pirate’s life For All Mankind. Raise the mast and hoist the solar wind sails, we’re going to Mars! Will this race to Mars expose Russian spies and give rise to international tensions back home? Or will it all end in a friendly declaration of multi-ownership topped off with a round of hugs? Whoever gets there first has a big decision to make. But the real question, will wily cables be the downfall of the space race?
We’re discussing feedback for episodes 1-3 of season 3 of For All Mankind. Let us know what we missed, what we got wrong, and bring on those alternate future theories. Jim’s got an interesting one for you: did Yoko Ono kill the inventor of the pop-top can? And yes, there is a tiny bit of evidence to maybe support it. Let us know if you have even more to say about the unintentional villain of the series; the cables!

This is it. The missions to Mars gather enough speed for launch just in time for 1994. How? Well, some shortcuts were taken, some ships repurposed, and perhaps some small bit of nuclear technology was given to the Soviets by a reluctant spy who presumably would have to shave her head completely bald to actually seal the deal with Sergei. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on “All In”.
Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of some weird ass love stories. In a show full of brilliant astronauts and hardcore investors, it’s no wonder that tensions run high. We talk about Harambe, yes the gorilla (RIP) and the office politics that are making their way into space. Many of the characters in this show can be described as a piece of work, but Karen takes the cake.
Take a peek into our alternative past, present, and future in the return of For All Mankind. The season is bringing new relationships and piling on the family drama. Are we going to get another land invasion of Mars? How many more wars do we need to fight?! Witness the first wedding in space…and it’s just as cringey as some weddings down here on earth, but more dangerous. But the economy is soaring, so I would like to live in this reality please.
The show that took home multiple Baldies is back with an exciting looking season. In this scifi realism, we wonder how the show will tackle how space is viewed in an age of expansion, public and private space exploration, and heroism from different perspectives. Which flaps of the butterfly wings are going to influence life in this space age? Find out with us Friday, June 10th at 3AM EST when the pilot and our first episode drop.
Listener beware, there be SPOILERS ahead. What’s a Lynchian show about innies and outies, but has nothing to do with belly buttons? All jokes aside about Apple TV+, Severance is actually pretty damn cool. Jim and A.Ron discuss the fault lines forming in Lumon’s facade and in the severed minds of the workers. The scifi premise of the show creates the potential for philosophy behind these bizarre scenes, and yes even those strange, strange waffle parties.
Speaking of unique workplaces, A.Ron and Jim’s working on their backup business plan where they stick googly eyes on toilet plungers. They’re looking for investors. And while we’re talking about googly eyes, we’ve got a review for the all-new, all-amazing Everything Everywhere All At Once.
This week A.Ron gives his impressions of Amazon Prime’s Reacher series. Then we talk about Severance through episode 6, and wrap up season two of The Righteous Gemstones.
Severance on Apple TV+ has captured our imaginations, not just during our work hours but during our personal time too, which is why we’ve come together to record an emergency episode of Off the Clock. Join us for this highly-speculative podcast as we try to unravel the mysteries and dilemmas of Severance.
We talked with Showrunner and Executive Producer David S. Goyer again after the conclusion of Foundation season 1 and he was gracious enough to answer some of our lingering questions. Thanks again to David for being a good sport and for a great season of epic science fiction TV. Respect and enjoy the interview.
