Nathan and Eppy are joined by special guest Emily Care Boss to talk about S1E2 The Dark and Bloody Ground. Featuring the debut of Beth Davenport and excellent action sequences from director Michael Schultz, we have a lot to gush about beyond the slightly-too-convoluted mystery plot that centers on dual identities, obscure copyright law, and love lost in the pursuit of big Hollywood money. In our second half, Emily leads our deep dive conversation into building dynamic relationships AND dynamic action sequences in fiction. Thanks to our Patreon supporters for enabling our first guest appearance!

Nathan and Eppy discuss S2E13 The Girl in the Bay City Boys Club. Jim goes to Bay City to investigate a crooked poker game, but quickly gets caught up with a rogue DA, his idealistic assistant Kate, and the mob. The only episode directed by James Garner, this one surprised us with subtleties as it delighted us with dynamic chases!
