The Walking Dead: “The Big Scary U”

Margaux rejoins me to talk about last night’s Negan-heavy episode of The Walking Dead.  Trevor: Am I losing my mind, or have the last two episodes of The Walking Dead been kinda good? Don’t get me wrong, both “The Big Scary U” and “Some Guy” have their issues, but they’re much better than early-season entries like “Monsters.”... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “Some Guy”

If I’ve made one thing perfectly clear over the last few weeks, it’s that I have a dislike for certain things: season eight of The Walking Dead, and the character Ezekiel therein. The novelty has worn off, the bloom is off the rose, and last week I even found him to be comical, as he is the only dipshit in the Kingdom to talk the way he... Read More | Share it now!

The Walking Dead: “Monsters”

My word, what a frustrating episode. The Walking Dead might be one of those shows that would benefit from a mandatory change of showrunner every few seasons. When Scott Gimple took the reins in season three, the change in quality was palpable, and in his tenure he’s delivered some of the show’s all-time greatest episodes, like...

The Walking Dead: “The Damned”

For its eighth season, The Walking Dead promised viewers “all-out war,” adhering to the titular arc in the graphic novels. It was a smart ploy, one designed to bring back viewers who were rapidly jumping ship amidst all the soul-searching and circular conversations (whether it works remains to be seen; the premiere episode,...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Search” / “Ten of Swords”

Margaux and I say goodbye forever to Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: It’s fitting that Halt and Catch Fire’s final two episodes would be all about saying goodbye. In “Search,” Donna worries that she’s losing her family: Gordon is dead, and Joanie is going to China. Cameron is leaving Comet after a short stint as chief coder, and even Bos...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Goodwill”

Margaux and I bid discuss a devastating episode of Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: This was a rough one – and I mean that in a good way. “Goodwill” was such a stark, forthright look at grief and loss that it was hard to watch (again, in a good way). This reminded me of last season’s brilliant finale “NeXT”; this too was... Read More | Share it now!

Halt and Catch Fire: “Who Needs a Guy”

Margaux and I discuss a devastating Halt and Catch Fire. (Spoilers ahead.) Trevor: I can’t imagine many shows being able to pull of what Halt and Catch Fire pulled off in the excellent “Who Needs a Guy.” Many times while reviewing this show with you, I’ve celebrated the fact that it moved away from trying to be the new Mad Men, but after...

Halt and Catch Fire: “A Connection is Made”

After a week off (I was sick), Margaux and I return, as prophesied, to talk about Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: Not a lot of shows can pull off an episode like “A Connection is Made.” It strikes such a tonal balance that a lesser show would probably give a viewer whiplash. For much of its runtime, “Connection” is a very sweet episode,... Read More | Share it now!

Halt and Catch Fire “Tonya and Nancy” – Review

Trevor: I think what I’m enjoying most about Halt and Catch Fire’s final season is the sense of discovery. This is a huge story told on a very intimate scale, and it occurred to me while watching “Tonya and Nancy” that this show has had the same core ensemble for four seasons now (the only impactful characters to be added later were Tom and...
