Someone get ready to catch him when he passes out from the fumes. Will Star Wars figure out the secret sauce for future crossovers? Will the real Gideon please show us his mustache? Catch this Season 3 catch-all episode of feedback for The Mandalorian.
These are the wrapup thoughts of the star-studded show, Star Trek: Picard. A.Ron and Jim’s mission: to chat about a fun show as good friends who love Star Trek. To boldly declare which moments were good, and which were nonsense!
This isn’t the last voyage! Bald Move will be covering Strange New Worlds starting this June!
The finale didn’t land with some critics, but Jim and A.Ron liked it! When you let go of “what could have been”, you’ll enjoy the swarms of Mandos, fight scenes, and Giancarlo Esposito. What will be next for this found family? Your hosts share some season 4 hopes. And you can share yours by sending in an email!
The voyage of Star Trek: Picard comes to an end. The series had the best of episodes, and the worst of episodes. But Jim and A.Ron say this finale stuck the landing. The return of the entire cast was a good burst of nostalgia and the perfect way to end the show for those diehard Trek Heads. Though the journey may end here for Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Jim and A.Ron speculate on the future storylines of some of these newer characters.
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?
You’ve heard Mary Poppins sing; “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down!” Now sing along with Jim and A.Ron as they declare; “A beautiful ship makes the dumb plot line go down!” Armed with the TNG Technical Manual and decades of fanboy knowledge, your hosts try to make sense of this episode. And do fireworks work in space? There’s nothing in the manual about that…
Jason from Podcastica joins Jim to discuss the latest episode of The Mandalorian. There’s battle, intrigue, and an interspecies love story! Christopher Lloyd is there to bring his old man weirdness to Star Wars, and we gotta say, it’s good to have him here. Mando and Bo explore a new world. Then Bo throws down the gauntlet to retake her fleet. It’s an eventful episode.
Step through the metaphorical door into this episode of The Podcast Maneuver. Jim and A.Ron ponder deep questions such as, what’s the deal with the middle finger? Is the Picard wine trash? And which Star Trek character has the most interesting love life? (Jim and A.Ron have everyone’s romantic history memorized…do with that information what you will.)
As the series goes on, its message surrounding politics gets muddy. What is this show trying to say, if anything at all? Meanwhile, the Armorer sends Bo-Katan on Rumspringa. Moff Gideon’s ship is found with remnants of Beskar. And you CANNOT make A.Ron watch any Star Wars cartoons, ok??!!?
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.
