304 - Rules of Honorable Play

Comments

  • So I guess Joe and Ryan are just going to Forrest Gump themselves into inventing the internet...

    Does that mean Mutiny will become one of the first content providers akin to something like America Online? That would actually fit pretty well with how the show has developed Mutiny over the last couple seasons. Doing the cursory Wikipedia search/copy/paste, the early Aol history includes:
    • Graphical chat environments (1986–1988)
    • The first online interactive fiction series QuantumLink Serial  (1988)
    • Quantum Space, the first fully automated Play by email game (1989–1991)
    Sounds like a pretty good description of Mutiny. Throw in an Ebay and Craigslist and they can cover about 50% of the content of the early internet. They have to start a porn site to cover the other 50%...

    Dear God...does that mean that, in this universe, those AOL discs that polluted the 90s like a zombie apocalypse...will have Joe's face on them?

    This is a darker vision of the 80s than the Americans.

    Very good episode. I'm pretty conflicted about Donna not telling Cameron that she can fire the guys. I'm really liking Cameron this season but she does have to learn how to work with people in a professional setting, on the other hand your business partner should be someone who won't do this kind of thing. Is Donna going to start being more of a Joe business wise?

    The opening with Gordon was great, I'm enjoying him and Cameron becoming some version of friends after being so antagonistic towards each other the first two seasons. I wonder how his continued health problems will affect the rest of the season.

    In the podcast, Eric focused heavily on Diane telling Donna that she was investing in Donna's & Cameron's relationship.  In that same conversation, Diane also said that she wasn't sure if the problems with the aquisition were the new guys or Cameron's fault.

    I think that question made more of an impact on Donna.  Previously, Donna backed Cameron against Gordon's criticism of her leadership.  However, to me, Donna looks up to Dianne almost as much as Ryan looks up to Joe.  For Diane to even ask that question, has caused to Donna to reevaluate Cameron's position. 

    It doesn't explain Donna's deception, unless she feels that Cameron is incapable of having an honest discussion of her role in Mutiny.

    Strong take. I'll be on the lookout for more Diane influence over Donna.

    Anyone else notice that Cameron was wearing a red shirt in the scene where Donna lies about firing the guys?

    Anyone else worried for our manic pixie dream hacker?
  • On Cameron and Brownie -- when they had their heart to heart, Cameron asked Brownie if he wanted to work solo.  Later, he went into her office and typed on her computer that he was interested.  I think she had to fire Blondie & Brownie because they were a team and if she wanted to work with only Brownie, she had to get rid of Blondie. 

    Really bummed out that Donna lied to Cameron, not going to go well.
