This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the premiere of the Norwegian Netflix fantasy series Ragnarok.

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the season and series finale in which Henry learns some painful truths about Nikolai and her father.

Episode 348 Impulse S02E09 A Moment of Clarity

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis for this week’s episode of the YouTube production Impulse, and our listener feedback. 

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss Henry’s decision to temporarily remove Anna Hulce from the narrative equation, and whether she truly intends to return her to safety. Wayne contends that Thomas has committed the biggest relationship blunder a man of his standing can make, and Dave worries a bit about the coming season and series finale.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave finally gets caught with The Magicians and has a positive reaction to the series’ finale. Somehow, he also returns to HBO’s Westworld and in response to its complex third season has also initiated a series rewatch. Wayne zeroes in on the unusual Oscar nominated film Jo Jo Rabbit.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands questions the extended screen time of Nikolai’s fight with his sister, and trusts Dave that the season finale can provide some measure of closure for the series which was not renewed for a third season.
