We left it up to listeners to guide us to the most improved THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO episode ever, and what can I say? They rolled a natural 20 and crushed the skill check. The show writers had a lot of thoughts on Dungeons and Dragons, Satanic Panics, the Youth and Their Vidya Games. A lot of hilariously wrong thoughts, but in the best, most entertaining way possible. Grab your giant sand dial, don your best fez, and be sure to draw your destiny card because it’s time to enter the dark, sinister, literally underground world of Wizards and Warlocks!
In the wilderness, Shauna’s baby woes ended in the simplest way, but it’s sure to cause a schism between Lottie’s followers and the non-believers. In the present, the team is back together at Lottie’s cult (ahem) wellness center. Did the mysterious darkness bring them together? Or has it been inside of them all along? And what weirdness does Matt have going on downstairs?
Do you remember the first time you saw the black and white opening? What were your theories? Did you catch all of the foreshadowing in this episode? In case you missed those details, Pete and Courtney have a rundown of all the hard-to-spot clues that color this season. Your hosts will paint a picture that blends themes, plot, and character development so you can experience the great storytelling of Breaking Bad all over again.
IMDB really picked a gem of an AIRWOLF episode for us this week! David Carridine? A sorta/quasi showdown with an evil Airwolf? A fiery redhead last seen doing cow math on Knight Rider? Some nice character work between Dom and String? This episode has it all, along with some terrific helicopter action sequences and pulse pounding synth holding it all together. Pure nostalgic bliss!
Did your theories get downvoted on Reddit? Well, bring them here! Was Travis about to join the Purple People cult? Can Yellowjackets be deciphered with a basic knowledge of Jungian archetypes? Who is the ‘friend’ Javi refers to? Check out this deep dive into Yellowjackets theory crafting.
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’re taking a second look at A-Team’s “Deadly Maneuvers”! Seems like everybody wants an arch nemesis to square off against in the 80s, and this week the A-Team is met with a B-Team assembled from the personals section of Soldier of Fortune magazine by a corrupt consortium of rich dicks who are sick of the A-Teams meddling in their affairs. You’ll never guess, but Mr. T is once more laid low by drinking milk. I pity the fool who doesn’t got milk!
Randy gets dragged back into the mess. Callie lies to the cops. And Lottie mines Nat’s mind for the answer to Travis’ note. Back in the woods, Javi isn’t speaking (annoying) and Lottie’s influence on the group grows. It’s hard to tell if the rituals have an actual effect. And the burning question, what will happen to this wilderness baby?
In this episode of feedback, you’ll get a deeper look into character motives, a possible meaning of the symbol, a guess as to where Javi has been, and more! Can all the strange things in the wilderness be a coincidence? What was the fate of the baby? And can we trust the producers? No, obviously not.
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.
The Misty and Walter storyline is taking a cute turn. It’s also taking a dark turn. Such is the nature of Yellowjackets. As the mysteries pile up, Jim finds some theories he likes. And A.Ron makes a play for some future Internet points. What darkness is hiding behind the beautiful blue eyes of Elijah Wood? And find out about the plot point that Jim considers an intellectual affront.
