This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the series finale and whether we view the “it was all in Magne’s head,” as a clever narrative twist or total copout.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave recommends the Spanish Netflix thriller Holy Family, and Wayne watches the finale of Doom Patrol with mixed feelings about its quality.
In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands laments encountering spoilers about the series finale, and Alan in England, like Dave, notices the counselor’s reluctance to tell Ran what’s really on his mind.
