The ethics of creating artificially-intelligent machines is tricky business and it's quickly becoming our reality. How will society change to accommodate these new beings? Are they beings at all? And why do robots love milk so dang much?! Join us for a weekly, episodic recap laced with comedy, theories, and listener feedback as we dive deep into the important questions of HBO's new science fiction series, "Westworld".
||ExplicitSeason Two Wrap Up!||Season two of Westworld is in the books. It was a bit of a rough, uneven experience for us, and we suspect from the vast amount of feedback we got this past week, a lot of you as well. But, the bones of Westworld are still sound,||7/3/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||Explicit210 – The Passenger||Reasonable people may disagree, but for Jim and I, the finale of HBO's Westworld season two, "The Passenger" failed to justify an ultimately flawed and uneven 10.5 hours of television.

Another great podcast from Bald Move
These guys are simply the best. I love their coverage and analysis of some of the best shows on TV. They do a great job of recapping the episodes and are very informational about news and theories involving each show they cover. This is a must listen.
Best duo in he business
Glad to see that the guys are going to be taking on Weetworld from day one. They have great chemistry, and always do a great job of pointing things out to me I may have missed. Keep it up.

If Jim and A-Ron are casting for a new series, I start watching that show just because I like listening to them so much. The Walking Dead is too dumb of a show for me to watch, but I love listening to their synopsis of each episode.
They're both informative and funny in their own way. Far and away my most listened to Podcasters
