Grand Admiral Thrawn isn’t the villain we deserved, he’s the villain we needed. Star Wars: Ahsoka keeps on a steady upward trend. The main complaint here is the criminal misuse of Wes Chatham. It’s not perfect, there are some odd character choices, but everyone’s still excited for the next episode.
Foundation delivers another episode of great writing and jaw-dropping visuals. Hari’s plans remain a mystery, Demerzel remains a cipher. As characters push and pull each other into different directions, Jim and A.Ron wonder who will be lost to Empire. And there’s another massive cliffhanger as the cherry on top.
Sandy’s life is in danger. The identity of the mole is revealed. Jim recants his opinion on the cop. Carolyn is messing with other people’s cool stuff. Some interesting observations in the feedback. Don’t you dare simp!
It’s the Star Trek: Lower Decks crossover that we needed! After a selfie activates a portal, Boimler and Mariner find themselves on the Enterprise.

Put a little madcap in your Star Trek with this episode!
The last course is served on this season of The Bear. This character study was an exquisite sweet and salty combo that encapsulated the nuances of being a flawed human being. Between the laughs and heartbreak, there’s a smorgasbord of colorful characters you don’t want to miss.
The Yellowjackets reunite at Lottie’s Wellness Retreat Center, but there’s no wellness to be found. As each woman goes about her “therapy” in the present, the show takes us back to the 90s to show us why they need therapy. Misty is a lovesick murderer. Shauna has had enough of Lottie. And everyone gets suspicious about Crystal’s disappearance.
On the second half of this season of Mr. Feeny, we’re checking out the BEST episodes of the series we’ve already seen, and this week we take a second look at MACGYVER’s “The Widowmaker”, and give Jim his second crack at MR. FEENY this season! This is the episode that cements Murdock as an arch-nemesis for Mac, and we love that for him. But we’re not sure there’s enough “MacGyvering” to be had in what’s supposed to be the top episode, and we, like his close friends, missed MacGyver’s smile. Of course when I say we, I meant the gen-xers on the podcast, because our resident millennial loved the darker, more somber take.
What’s something you do for fun? Now ask yourself, would you have even more fun if it was ILLEGAL? If your answer is yes, then you and Walter White have something in common. The Heisenberg hat makes a debut, which further reinforces the emerging persona. As Jesse and Walt wade into more dangerous waters, Pete and Courtney have some questions for you to consider. Does intention matter? How far can rationalizing go? And when would you ever need a baby tiara?
In the previous episode, The Mandalorian gave us a nuanced look at the consciousness of droids. In this episode, Grogu pilots a droid carcass like a mech. The horror! But that’s not the only scary thing. An old enemy sOmEhOw returns, the Double F’s have to steer this ship to line up with Episode 9, and Michael Jordan’s tequila is expensive! But one question remains, who are the spies?
There are some scorching-hot dueling theories from your hosts, Jim and A.Ron, in this episode. Picard may have gotten cucked, but Beverly got “Cuckoo-ed”. As early-onset Jumaji syndrome sets in, your nutty hosts try to figure out how much of Picard you need to run a successful experiment.
