51. The Americans 3x9, ”Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?”

“Do mail robots dream of electric sheep?” Do they ‘mangia’? Do they feel Philip probe their deepest depths to plant a bug? All great questions. This week, John and Danielle tackle Season 3 Episode 9 of The Americans, “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” touching on Elizabeth’s shocking honesty with Betty, Hans’ CHOICES, and the showdown between Philip and Gabriel. In the Dossier, Danielle floats a new Zinaida theory and checks in on her Martha predictions. John muses over the 80s-ness of aspirin and beer, and then offers a helpful gloss of Foucault on confession to help your hosts contemplate some of the theoretical implications of Elizabeth’s conversation with Betty. Come for the critique of Succession-core hats as spy disguises (come on guys, you’re professionals!), stay for TheoryShips for not only Elizabeth, but Hans too!
