It’s not just a philosophy teacher’s fever dream. Brazil, directed and co-written by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam, has a lot to say about technology, bureaucracy, and loss of individual freedom between scenes of intestinal air ducts and suits full of sewage. There’s stuff we did and didn’t like, but I think we can all appreciate seeing Jonathan Pryce in one of his few leading roles. Grab your annotated copy of 1984 and settle in for this light sci-fi, absurdist criticism of society.
In the distant past of 1990s Earth, the world of For All Mankind wrapped up its third season. With two new showrunners on the horizon and season that was…let’s say a mixed bag, we’ve got feedback with love and distaste for the show. Coverage of season 4 is TBD, so in the meantime, check out more of our Prestige episodes!
With a satisfying conclusion to a rocky season, Jim and A.Ron are here to break down their favorite and not-so-favorite moments of the season finale. A.Ron rescinds his previous “jumped the shark” analysis. With one great scene after another, the conclusion of this season came as an emotional gut punch. After that ending, A.Ron and Jim are looking forward to next season.
Big Internet points to whoever predicted this episode’s turn of events. We get payoffs, time jumps that make us ask “What happened to Sergei?”, and we get a glimpse at the very real consequences of further automating our businesses and lives. It’s a packed episode and we’re looking forward to the next.
We’re back for another round of your feedback. We’ll have at least one more of these after the finale so send your feedback in to email@example.com.
The feels are running high in this episode. Sympathy for Danny? Believe it or not, you’ll feel it! Russians crying over American counterparts? It’ll tug your heartstrings. The eggheads get their badass moments to shine which confirms our personal theory that nerds are cool too.
What is being brought down? The reputation of the American Government? We’re doing that in this reality too, hey-o! Starting out with opposing views, Jim and A.Ron take you through an episode where not enough shoes drop and the chaos grows. If you feel the need to respond to Jim’s scorching hot take on the cute puppy/irritating noise machine, you can scream at him at firstname.lastname@example.org about cyber puppy crimes.
British listeners beware, Jim and A.Ron say git over and over and I promise it’s gonna sound a bit awkward. We’ve got feedback spanning several episodes and the best of the best feedback has survived the test of time as some theories and questions have been answered or disproved. And future predictions include a bitter fallout between Aleida and Margo. Listen to feedback from you!
Join us for another great episode of For All Mankind.
