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.
This week A.Ron gives his impressions of Amazon Prime’s Reacher series. Then we talk about Severance through episode 6, and wrap up season two of The Righteous Gemstones.
Severance on Apple TV+ has captured our imaginations, not just during our work hours but during our personal time too, which is why we’ve come together to record an emergency episode of Off the Clock. Join us for this highly-speculative podcast as we try to unravel the mysteries and dilemmas of Severance.
We discuss Mad Men behaving badly, Sepinwall’s Greater Billy Pilgrim Theory of 7B, the awesome, and yet sad, triumph of Ken, the magnificent bastard that is Stan Rizzo, check in with a bunch of feedback from our army of correspondents, and much, much more. Enjoy!
Starts approximately at 9:45pm EST!
