The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell – Feedback

The magnetic containment unit experienced core meltdown, and the feedback is smoking. With the madness of this season it’s no surprise your feedback covers the gamut from bad borg face effects to the nonsensical character arc closures. What do we want in season three? A full cast reunion sharing a scene together. We don’t want Patrick Stewart to catch covid, but when else are we going to have the chance to see this?
Hailing frequencies are going dark. We’re not planning Picard Season 3 episode coverage. But if you want to hear us talk about it, consider supporting us to gain access to our premium Off the Clock episodes.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell

Set phasers to mildly entertained. There were a few good moments sprinkled amongst the madness. Q and Picard’s relationship comes to a somewhat satisfying end with Picard now unshackled from his past decisions. The road getting here was rough, but was it worth the journey? And A.Ron has been cured of Jurati syndrome. Thank you for all the sympathy cards.
Picard Season 3 episode by episode coverage is TBD. Who’s looking forward to the reunion next season?
Integrity of the magnetic containment unit is deteriorating. Power crystals might last for one final episode. Send in your feedback to picard@baldmove.com.

Severance, Everything Everywhere All At Once – Off the Clock

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.

The Expanse - S06E06 – Babylon’s Ashes

The series finale delivers on nearly all fronts with some great action, some precious final moments between the characters we’ve come to love, and a promising conclusion for Inyalowda / Beltalowda relations. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on perhaps the best sci-fi series ever made. (We go into that)

Foundation - S1E10 – The Leap

Well, we took a leap of faith covering the first season of a show which was trying to tell a story that everyone said couldn’t be told in the visual medium. Now that the final episode has been released, how did it work out? Join us for the podcast covering the season one finale of Foundation for our long-form thoughts.

806 – The Iron Throne – SpoiLore Edition

In our penultimate podcast for HBO’s Game of Thrones, we invite Gods of Thrones co-author Anthony Le Donne back to the studio to discuss how the book might resolve in ways that are consistent, but perhaps more satisfying, than some found the show’s resolution. Then we’re off to feedback, where we talk about Martin’s progress on Winds, our thoughts on Bran the Broken, where things line up with Dany’s prophecies in the final analysis, and much more on “The Iron Throne”. See you next week as we sign off and transform the podcast into a Thrones prequels feed!
