About Us

We love to dive deep into our favorite shows and analyze them. Instead of episode by episode recaps, we split it up by topic, so we can explore themes that stretch across an entire season or series. Deep dives are usually posted on Thursdays.On Tuesdays, we host a weekly TV Roundup where we chat about what we watched that week and do spoiler-free previews.

Latest Episodes

Sex, Rock 'n' Roll, and Openly Expressing Your Feelings

EWe explain FLCL S1's perspective on sexuality and what it means to be an adult, looking at adult role models and the arcs of Ninamori and Naota. Shawn revisits the Magic Pixie Dream Girl trope as applied to FLCL. Then, we discuss what we thought about episode 1 of season 2 and our hopes and dreams for future episodes.

Eye Stab You, You Stab Me, We're a Shogun Family

EJason and Shawn give some takes on Shogun World, discussing motherhood, doppelgangers, and whether Delores is a big bad or a good leader. We also nitpick cortical fluid. Then, we do a new segment that we're temporarily calling trailer roundup (19:02), where we watch the trailers for some new shows and decide whether we're enticed or not. We take a non-spoiler look at: Arrested Development S5, GLOW S2, Killing Eve, FLCL S2/S3, and Cobra Kai.

Westworld S2 E4 and Silicon Valley S5 Analysis

EShawn and Jason talk about why they loved episode 4 of Westworld (00:21), discussing how the stories were more focused and how deep it was philosophically. Then, they give their thoughts on the recently completed Silicon Valley season 5 (21:55), including how the show stays relevant and the extent of Richard's a**holeness.

Westworld S2 Episodes 1-3 and Legion S2 Episode 6 Analysis

EJason and Shawn give their broad thoughts on Westworld as a whole (0:46), and then give more specific thoughts about story structure, the nature of consciousness, and conflicts between main characters (3:42). In the second part of the show, we take on a confusing episode (aren't they all though?) of Legion (23:55). First, we unpack the many worlds in the episode, and then ponder what it means thematically, talking about grief and the limits of David's powers.

Game of Thrones Episode 706 Beyond the Wall Deep Dive

EWe go deep into Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6, Beyond the Wall. Despite all the action, our favorite moments were actually the conversations between the Magnificent 7 (0:48). After discussing that, we mourn Viserion (9:51) and speculate about his new abilities. We follow up on shipping Jonerys (17:52) and debate whether or not Dany can break the wheel (21:01). Shawn then debunks the dumb Bran is the Night King theory (25:46), while Jason tries to give the writers the benefit of the doubt with the Arya / Sansa drama (31:43). Finally, we make some wild guesses about what will happen in King's Landing for the finale (40:29).
