Noah Hawley is leaning heavily into the supernatural aspect. This episode is packed with references to history and lore. You might be saying, “Whoa now! That’s a lot of background information I don’t care to look up!” That’s ok because Jim and A.Ron did all the research for you. You’ll soon understand the sentence: A sin-eater finds a home.
Fargo comes to your small screen with a two episode premiere of season 5! Jim and A.Ron are here to take you back to the not-so-distant past of 2019 where dumb cops, supernatural entities and copious amounts of violence descend on a Midwestern town. This grim version of Home Alone didn’t pack laughs, but its potential for mayhem is tantalizing. Don’t forget to set your traps!
Fargo is coming back with a spin on the movie that started it all. This series is an anthology, so you can jump in here if you’re new! This season revamps Fargo (1996) and asks “What if…?” and changes some of the recognizable plot points to retell the iconic story. Showrunner Noah Hawley promises a funny season for this dramedy. Join Jim and A.Ron as they continue their coverage of this beloved, zany show.
Is it way too early for a Season Five preview? Probably. But a few questions linger that warrant consideration: Will’s connection to the Upside Down, Hopper’s relevancy, and what time is the Pajama Jammi Jam?
I think it’s safe to say, based on the tone of the discussion, this is the episode everyone has been waiting for. CONTINUITY BABY! I suppose it could have been disappointing if you were holding out hope for a live-action episode starring Xtopher Lloyd, but it answers a lot of questions that we’ve had for seasons now and sets up some truly interesting possibilities for the future of Rick and Morty. Check out the podcast to hear us discuss them.
This is definitely the first part of a two-part season finale, but it sneaks up on you thanks to a pretty engaging plot involving Rick replacing Morty with a couple of crows. Personally, I think I’d rather have seen the “Half a Paul Giamatti” episode, but I enjoyed this one nonetheless. Check out the podcast to hear our thoughts.
Here’s the continuity you’ve been looking for. We finally deal with the tragedy of Rick’s artificially preserved best friend, Birdperson in an episode loosely based on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check out the podcast to hear us hypothesize about the canon implications of this episode, among other things, and join us back here during the week of September 5th for the back-to-back airing of the final two season 5 episodes.
Oh boy, the community is divided over this episode. Turns out, so is our podcast. Join us for a discussion of S05E07 “Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion” which is either a perfect example of why the haters don’t deserve anymore Rick and Morty or a perfect example of why the latest season is complete crap, depending on which type of toxic fan you are.
Rick and Morty take on Turkey Day by getting into the holiday spirit quite a bit more literally than most of us. Join us for Thanksgiving in July with our podcast for season 5, episode 6, “Ricky & Morty’s Thanksploitation Spectacular”.
