Penny Earful – 300 – “Season Two Wrap Up”

Hop in the Wayback Machine as A.Ron and Nina from Project Fandom spend some time recapping season two of Penny Dreadful. This was originally part of our Bald Move TV podcast last year, which I pulled the relevant parts from. The audio quality is a bit off since I had to splice this together from an MP3 instead of the original files, but it gives a nice recap and look ahead to the new season. How on point were we a year ago? Find out!


Bald Move TV – 405 – “A Little Late to Grow a Pair”

Cecily and A.Ron discuss episode 405 of Cinemax’s “Banshee”, entitled, “A Little Late to Grow a Pair”. While there is no denying the inherent silliness of the Satanist main plot, everything else in the episode is gold. Job transforming back into JOB!, Burton taking a chainsaw to Banshee’s beleagured Amish community, Hood having fun Batmaning Brock a time or two, and some good times are had at the sleepy little country communities one and only BDSM/Satanist hangout. Sure, why not!


Game of Thrones – 602 – Home – Instant Take

Jim and A.Ron struggle to process the events that transpire in the wide ranging and absolutely packed episode 602, “Home”. Jaw dropping, shocking, and inspirational, there is just so much to unpack that it’s almost unfair that we have to give our instant reactions, but that’s what we’re here for! And we’ll be back Tuesday, with another few watches under our belt, and we’re sure that everyone out there has lots to say. I can’t even imagine what the SpoiLORE edition is going to be like, ye gods, but it’s going to be a fun week. A really, really long week, because if you’re anything like us, you’d give about a month’s pay to be able to watch episode 603 right now.


Penny Earful – 401 – “The Day Tennyson Died”

Welcome to the first episode of “Penny Earful”, representing Bald Move’s podcast covering Showtime’s gothic horror series, “Penny Dreadful”. A.Ron and Cecily are both high on the premiere episode, “The Day Tennyson Died”, and share our thoughts and opinions Vanessa in recluse mode, Ethan on the Lamb, Sir Malcolm’s new sidekick, and get incredibly excited for the tease of the new big evil bad guy our gang will be squaring off against. All this and of course, feedback from our fellow fans.


Game of Thrones – 601 – The Red Woman – SpoiLore Edition!

Jim and A.Ron consider some book-based speculation and theories from the latest episode of Game of Thrones! If you’re a show-only watcher who doesn’t want any spoilers, it’s best to just skip this one. Need to catch up? Here’s a Tinfoil SpoiLore archive of previous podcasts by topic.

THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, John Wayne, James Stewart, 1962

Bald Movies – The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) – Commissioned Podcast

Special thanks to Dr. Ken for the gutsy call to have us do a commissioned podcast for a black and white 60’s Western film, “The Man Show Shot Liberty Valance”. Directed by the great John Ford, and starring John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, this movie is both insanely fun to watch and, believe it or not, serves as a great primer on American politics. It might just be the tonic you need during an especially intense political season. And I can’t stress this enough, this film is crazy entertaining. If you care at all about Westerns or classic Hollywood film-making, and haven’t already, make the time to watch this film.
