What Did You Watch This Week has released 380 episodes since launching on Mar 03, 2016
Greetings from TV land! This week the guys find themselves staring down the barrel of a week on hiatus! Rest assured good listeners, they still had stuff to talk about, starting with the final 2 episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead. What is up with the trip to the past? Will Ash be able to undo everything from the movies? What is up with the Jedi spirits? Beyond that, there is a lot to unpack in the midseason finale of Timeless, Mike watched a couple of movies he wants to talk about, and John saw the first episode of the new Netflix original The OA (minimal spoilers). Please note: We both watched Rouge One, but due to how new the film is to theaters, we declined to talk about it this week to prevent spoilers from something this epic.
On this week's episode... well, let's be honest here: At least half of it is just devoted to going over the amazing season finale of Westworld. We'd love to say that all the shows get equal treatment on this episode, but that would be a bald-faced lie. The finale... I mean come on! Really! It was just... and then that one scene... and what about the purse?! And the gunfights! And was that a man, or a host? I mean come ON! And yeah... Flash and Arrow, and This is Us... some trailers and some movies... But guys, come on! Westworld is done for over a year!
Welcome back to a jam-packed episode of What did you watch this week, the podcast that knows how to spell the word award! On this episode, the boys talk in depth about the penultimate (that means next to last) episode of Westworld's first mind-blowing season, and psych themselves up for the finale! In addition, they have a lot of unpacking to do with the four-part crossover event on the CW's DC universe, and boy is there a lot of mixed feelings there! As if that weren't enough, the guys also talk about This is Us and the major happenings in the follow-up to the Thanksgiving episode, Adam ruins the Wild West for us, Mike couldn't make it thru a new movie for lack of genuine interest, and John throws in the towel (finally) on one of his shows!
The shows may have been light this week because of the holiday, but John and Mike still had plenty to say about the ones they did watch! Westworld had some outstanding revelations and deeper digs on the mysteries, and Supergirl did a good job of drawing some parallels between the struggles of alien races across its characters. The boys also discuss relationship[s on This is Us, and lament the end of the season for Stan Against Evil. All this plus more, including the trailer for the best looking show that will undoubtedly be cancelled early on in its run, on this week's Granny Award Pinning episode of What did You Watch this Week!
