Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of Outer Range, and our listener feedback.  This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the season finale, the revelation that Autumn is actually adult Amy, and consider the likelihood that she’s traveled from the future. Is the trail of black powder followed by Sheriff Joy a path to an unseen time portal? Does the series hold up if the story ends here? In our What We're Watching segment, Dave makes the bold statement that the new Prime Video series Paper Girls outshines the iconic Stranger Things. Wayne continues his journey with the animated Star Wars fare.  In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands feels the series finale is relatively predictable, and Scott suggests that much of the eighth episode functions as a commentary on gun culture in America.

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of Outer Range, and our listener feedback.  This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss more possibilities concerning Autumn and her connection to the Abbott family. While it appears the handshake between Royal and Autumn coincides with the appearance of Trevor’s dead body and the disappearance of the mountains, virtually everything remains a mystery at this point. Last week Dave surmised Autumn could be adult Amy, and this week Wayne suggests that possibility that she could be Royal’s younger sister.  In our What We're Watching segment, Dave begins season 4 of Westworld without the benefit of a rewatch, and Wayne returns to the current season of The Boys.  In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands gives this episode a B grade and like the hosts wonder about the significance of the handshake.  Remember to join the genre television and film discussion on the SciFi TV Rewatch Facebook group for the latest genre television show news and podcast releases.
