BrainDead Season Finale Recap: Election Day

BrainDead's final offering is good, silly fun.

  • S.01
  • Ep.06
  • 'Notes Toward a Post-Reagan Theory of Party Alliance, Tribalist, and Loyalty: Past As Prologue'

"Past as Prologue" leans into the sheer goofiness of BrainDead's premise. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.05
  • 'Back to Work: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Congress and How It Gets Things Done (and Often Doesn't)'

This episode is a big step backwards from a very fun cliffhanger. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.04
  • 'Wake Up Grassroots: The Nine Virtues of Participatory Democracy, and How We Can Keep America Great by Encouraging an Informed Electorate'

Four episodes in, BrainDead is coming into its own. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.03
  • 'Goring Oxes: How You Can Survive the War on Government Through Five Easy Steps'

The political theater of BrainDead isn't measuring up to the political theater of reality.
