The Greatest SERIAL Recap: Escaping

I know a lot of you are relying on me to cover Serial in a timely manner so you don’t have to listen to it. Good news off the top: Episode 4 won’t be released until next week. This means I don’t have to cram two episodes into the allotted word count and my editor won’t be pissed that I slacked off on Christmas. I caught up on Episode Three during my drive home from work yesterday.

Fair warning to those of you with children closely following the Bergdahl case: this episode features harsh language right off the top. Similarly, if you have trouble stomaching torture and years of diarrhea, this would be the episode to skip.

Episode Three details how Bowe’s experience with the Taliban was less than pleasant. Chained to a bed, given little nutrition, his time spent in their company was a lot less enjoyable then his YouTube videos with them would insinuate. Turns out those videos were nothing more than propaganda, and not the good kind, like American Sniper.

Hold on—is that a guy with an INFOWARS bumper sticker? What are those other bumper stickers? I can’t even read them. These people need to learn to condense their messages, if they want anyone to learn about their Illuminati conspiracy theories via bumper stickers. The guy driving the car looks like one of the old kooks you’d expect to be contributing to Infowars. A guy living off the grid, but has enough of a presence to be a conspiracy theory journalist.

Anyway, during his time in captivity, Bowe Bergdahl is asked to answer to rumors about America. “Are all the women prostitutes? Is President Obama gay?” An Infowars reader would likely take the time to grill the Taliban for not asking the right questions: “Is President Obama a lizard man, conspiring with the shadow government to control the world?”

Eventually, things get so bad for Bergdahl that he hatched a plan to escape. This is really proving not to be his thing. Sure, he makes it out of their mountain fortress but he’s eventually (surprise!) captured by the Taliban. Sure, he’s not wrong for trying to get away, but he’s not blessed with much luck. Especially once the United States begins to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, or at least, that’s what Sarah Koenig promises to tell us about next week.

TRUTH WEB: Justin Roiland, Rick and Morty’s George Orwellian Show Runner?

Ray Patterson

Regular readers of Truth Web will know that I am fascinated by the paranormal, inter-dimensional travel and exposing the reptilian overlords who control our world like extra-terrestrial puppet masters! So it would make sense that at the end of a long weekend of Conspirabloging (conspiracy-blogging) I like to unwind by watching some light animated television-the one media that has yet to be corrupted by the reptilian hive mind… or so it would seem. Just before nodding off on a Monday evening I was struck a by a show called Rick and Morty. I rarely stay up late for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim because I have to wake up exceptionally early break the latest conspiracies, let’s remember that no one ever spoke to a Bigfoot between the hours of 1:13 and 5pm. I had become particularly fond of the program which seems to combine the majority of my interests with the exception of Reptilian hunting, but Icke forbid such a plot occur in a future episode.

In anticipation of the show’s return this evening I sat down to view a sneak peak of tonight’s episode at which point I found something rather alarming, a visual presence of show runner Justin Roiland in video that did not prominently feature Justin Roiland. For reference, here is a screen capture of an earlier interview with Roiland:

Looking behind him you’ll notice a photograph Roiland himself staring into the camera. Now, take a look at this screen capture of Rick and Morty’s Color Design Lead, Jason Boesch

Could it be that Roiland’s photo isn’t just at his own desk as a result of Hollywood narcism but because Roiland is always watching his staff? Could Roiland be going to exemplary measures to keep his staff in constant fear of destroying his vision. While we’ve only seen two desks in the Rick and Morty offices I would bet that it’s entirely possible that this photograph will be seen on future desks as we look further behind the scenes of the show. For comparison, here are both photographs side by side:

It may not be a smoking gun, but it’s certainly a smoking coincidence. I’ll be watching you Justin Roiland, mark my words, particularly Mondays at 10:30pm on Adult Swim.
