If you just want to hear the Bodies Bodies Bodies review, jump to 23:00 emailto:needssomeintroduction@gmail.com We make it to the end of the season. I find this season less entertaining, overall, than the first. They needed to tighten up the mystery. Plus, where are the laughs? Everyone feels a little tired. Then I recommend Bodies Bodies Bodies the new A24 mystery, horror, comedy.

We are happy to report that so far, the House of the Dragon gives us all the fan service we would hope for and some meaty new characters. Hopefully, the quality stays high. Plus, I finally get all my ideas of how easily the final season of Game of Thrones could have been fixed. For the rare few that are trying to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers, here are the timestamps for the spoiler-free segment of the podcast episode: 20:00 - 42:00  

Saturday Aug 20, 2022

First, Nick and I discuss the finale of Better Call Saul. I still have conflicted feelings and I can articulate them a bit after  few days of reflection. Then we add another song to our musical daisy chain before reviewing the first episode of She Hulk and previewing the massive slate of upcoming MCU content that has recently been announced (and we bash Star Wars again - not my doing, this time).

Monday Aug 15, 2022

It comes down to this. Peter Gould writes and directs the series finale. We get a fitting end to Saul/Jimmy's saga.

Saturday Aug 13, 2022

Black Bird delivers a solid season but with perhaps the weakest episode. It's still worth a watch. Then we add another link to our musical daisy chain before giving a brief positive review of Prey on Hulu and wrap up with a longer discussion of Bo Burnham's Inside project which includes a new set of outtakes which constitute almost an entire new special. 

Tuesday Aug 09, 2022

Vince Gilligan gets to write and direct one last episode. It's a good one although more in line with this shows normal low-key rhythms rather than the spectacle of Breaking Bad.

Tuesday Aug 02, 2022

Another excellent episode of the show as we approach the end. After a subdued episode, last week, that seemed to offer Saul a graceful bow out of his trickster background, it seems that he may now be on a bender that seems destined for tragedy.

Timestamps: The Gray Man (12:00) Nope (28:00) Black Bird (38:00) First, I have to announce the the imminent return of Bluey for a third season (a big event at my house). Then I discuss the Russo Brothers $200 million production, The Gray Man from Netflix with Celia. We also get into some more Nope spoilers.  Lastly, I break down the latest episode of Black Bird on AppleTV+. Next week Celia and I will be back to discuss the finale as well as the truth and fiction of this "based on a true story" story.

Tuesday Jul 26, 2022

Gene Takovik episodes are not as exciting as Saul Goodman episodes (or Jimmy McGill episodes, for that matter) but maybe that is the point.  Plus, many digressions on the value (or lack thereof) of the delicious smelling Cinnabon. 

Friday Jul 22, 2022

A brief spoiler free Nope review followed by a full critique of the disastrous first season of The Old Man. Then we discuss the far more successful AppleTV+ series, Black Bird which hits its stride this week with a particularly strong episode.  Then, I have a spoiler filled analysis if Peele's film and it many themes (maybe too many??). Timestamps: Nope (spoilers? NOPE!) - 5:00 The Old Man - 19:00 Black Bird - 44:00 Nope (spoilers? YEP!) - 55:00
