Yo-ho, yo-ho, it’s a pirate’s life For All Mankind. Raise the mast and hoist the solar wind sails, we’re going to Mars! Will this race to Mars expose Russian spies and give rise to international tensions back home? Or will it all end in a friendly declaration of multi-ownership topped off with a round of hugs? Whoever gets there first has a big decision to make. But the real question, will wily cables be the downfall of the space race?
Will there be time travel in season four? Will Steve be killed, stuck, or become a vampire? What 1986 song will save Nancy?
You know that fly that’s hanging out on your wall? Yeah, it’s out to get you. Before your eyes cross reading all those theories on Reddit, check out this episode of Watching Westworld as we gear up for watching the rest of season 4! Where do you stand on what makes a human? And listen to the fun facts A.Ron found on the Internet.
Listener beware, there be SPOILERS ahead.
Jim’s been blacked out from an episode of The Offer, so he’s probably in a rival family. We want to reach out to Burt Reynolds and console him personally over the bad casting of him in The Offer. Episodic Star Trek is what we needed and A.Ron has some strong opinions on the goings on at the Abbey.
From high-ish brow to junk food entertainment, we’re covering the gamut on this episode of OTC.
Here’s what’s happening at Bald Move this week.
The season opener sets up a lot of interesting questions about how things have changed in the 7+ years since the end of season 3 and, in true Westworld fashion, who is who and what is real. Join us for our first impressions in the “Instant Take”, recorded minutes after watching the episode. And enjoy the subsequent Q&A “Instant Talk” portion of the show if you’re a Club Bald Move member.
Anthony gushes about his favorite episode of the season. Steve proposes his theory that every character of the Breakfast Club has a parallel in season four.
The Thing turns 40 years old today. To celebrate, we’re re-releasing our podcast from 2018. Remarkably, the cutting-edge-for-their-time practical effects still hold up, which is more than you can say for most movies of the era. Join us for the show to celebrate The Thing’s anniversary.
Blade Runner turned 40 today and to celebrate, we’re re-releasing our podcast from four years ago. Check out The Final Cut of Blade Runner (seriously, it’s the better version by far) then join us for the show.
This is it. The missions to Mars gather enough speed for launch just in time for 1994. How? Well, some shortcuts were taken, some ships repurposed, and perhaps some small bit of nuclear technology was given to the Soviets by a reluctant spy who presumably would have to shave her head completely bald to actually seal the deal with Sergei. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on “All In”.
It’s a shocking thing to be witness to Herogasm, let me tell you. What’s more shocking still is to be witness to Herogasm yet somehow underwhelmed by its depravity. Even though the event itself disappointed, the episode did not. Join us for the podcast for a discussion of what went wrong and what went oh so right.
