401 - So It Goes / 402 - Signal to Noise
Just because the podcast isn't happening, doesn't mean the five of us here who still watch this show can't talk about it.
I really enjoyed this premiere. It seems like their plans for the final season changed at some point, since last year they set this up to be about web browsers, yet here they immediately jump forward three years (with a great montage, to be fair, and it allows the show to go full '90s - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air references and everything) and it seems like the season is actually going to be about search engines. Once you get used to that, there's a lot here to like - we know these characters so well by now that they can just have two of them talk on the phone for a whole episode and still have it be entertaining.
There are sadder moments here too, though. Not the fact that Joe's father died, no one cares about that - we must mourn the tragic loss of John Bosworth's boat.
