The Mandalorian S2E4 Review: “Chapter 12: The Siege”

The Mandalorian

This week on A Complicated Profession, we’re doing an easy job taking out an Imperial base. Easy! What could go wrong? Host Dan Moren is joined by Antony Johnston to discuss threading the needle of deep fandom and telling a great, accessible story; gorgeous production design; and leaving plot threads dangling.

The Boys S2E8 review: “What I Know”

The Boys

Here we are at the end of the season, and on one hand it felt too short, but on the other… there’s a satisfaction that the season was trim and lean with no saggy guts. Who survived the finale and who had the highest body count? Sam and Moze look at how good art mirrors life, even if we don’t like the reflection. Let’s bring it in to the huddle for one last play on the pitch.

The Boys S2E7 review: “Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker”

The Boys

The penultimate episode is here and it’s most assuredly not for the kids. “The Boys” proves that it has the power to transcend the superhero genre. Rub-a-dub-dub, this episode could be part one of Billy Butcher’s magnum war opus masterpiece of death. Then again, our boys could be back to square one with a few heads of state missing. Join us as we sift through the leftover grey matter.

The Boys S2E6 review: “The Bloody Doors Off”

The Boys


The Boys encounter an old enemy when they go on a mission to a psych ward only to run into Lamplighter. We get some reveal of our pal Frenchy and just how he got to be the most creative super killer of the Boys. Stormfront comes clean about her history and we have to ask, does Homelander trust her?

The Boys S2E5 review: “We Gotta Go Now”

The Boys

We peel back a bit more Billy Butcher history, as well as the faces of some bad guys. Each episode seems to be building to an inevitable fight for the boys. Sam and Moze just can’t seem to find the lines of attack. Come and join the conversation.

The Boys S2E3-4 review

The Boys

Welcome to TeeVee 666, the episode number EVERYONE but Moze was too scared and superstitious to own! What beast has been unleashed for ‘The Boys’?


The wrecking crew is back at full capacity! From coasting clean on yachts to breaking blowholes Homelander and Stormfront have a menace coming their way. Have no fear as Sam and Moze wipe down their blood brows to break these episodes down and prognosticate the future of this season.
