…to keep talking about Westworld! After a little chat about Billy Bush and Luke Cage (not simultaneously), Pat and Chris dive into the second episode of HBO’s new Sunday night drama. Then, in the conclusion you’ve all been waiting for, Chris gives his reviews of In the Heart of the Sea and Deadpool. Needless to say, Pat’s heart is once again broken. Chris is unrepentant. They make up. It gets weird. You know….the usual.
Yeeeeehaw! On this week’s barnburnin’ hootnnany of a show, those cattle-rustlin’ varmints Chris and Pat parlay about HBO’s newest big-budget Sunday drama, Westworld, and after talking about the show’s source material, the scope of the world, the phenomenal performances of Anthony Hopkins, and the questionable ethics of Ed Harris’ Man in Black, they’ve just got one question: what’s the protocol for cleaning out a sex robot?
Pat and Chris get down in the political muck with their thoughts on the first presidential debate between two of the least likable candidates in the history of politics. Then, they get into a debate of their own, discussing Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest TV Shows of all time: the hits, the misses, the head-scratchers, and the omissions. Because who doesn’t like a list? And who doesn’t like two morons talking about a list? And hey, shut up, you think you’re better than me?!
Two in a row? You’re damn right! After last week’s NFL jock-sniffing extravaganza, Pat and Chris regroup to talk about all the stu….well, at least some of the stuff they watched or read over the past few months, including the 2016 Rio Olympics and the slightly-deniably amazing Michael Phelps, the Emmys, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, Moby Dick (yeah, you read that right), and Game of Thrones. It will be quite painful….FOR YOU!

Mike & Rus are back, just in time to discuss the time-travel riddled Season 2 finale of The Flash! Apologies for the poor quality of Rus’s audio; he apparently doesn’t know how to work his mic.
With at least 5 speedsters in this episode and at least 3 instances of time-travel by at least 2 of those speedsters, Rus needs Mike’s help to get up to speed on both The Flash in DC Comics and on Barry Allen’s actions and motivations in this episode. The two discuss the implications of Flash’s actions on the growing CW’s DC superhero universe, and Mike threatens to turn his back on the show if there’s too much soap opera type human interactions in the Season 3 premiere this fall. Rus is all geek-giddy seeing 1990’s TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp, suited up as The Flash once again, but this time as Earth 3’s Jay Garrick Flash, who is inspired by DC Comics’ golden age Flash.
Run, Barry, run!
Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo) consists of a long and most excellent interview with The Up Late Network’s own Rus Wooton (Crowdfinders #36, before Crowdfinders was a part of the Network), and a talk with Olivia Li about Boundless, the science comics anthology that features, among other great talents, Dave, straight from this very podcast.
