In this podcast we discuss the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Blood of My Blood”. We consider the many visions Bran experienced as he “becomes” the Three Eyed Raven, the surprising appearance of a Stark long since lost, the fizzle of a show down between the Sparrows and the Lannister/Tyrell alliance, Arya choosing sides, Gilly not passing the muster, and Dany making yet another inspiring speech. All this, plus tons and tons of feedback from your fellow fans. See you Friday for the SpoiLore edition, where we delve deep into the prophecies, visions, and tinfoil theories spawned by the books and lore behind A Song of Ice and Fire!
It’s time for lunch. I have no idea what we’ll get up to this time but I’m sure it will be entertaining.
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. Each link has a time code listed so you can jump right to the tinfoil topic of the week for your convenience and listening pleasure
It’s that time again, time for Jim and A.Ron to review the latest comic book movie! This up is Bryan Singer’s latest; X-Men Apocalypse. The big problem with this film is that it’s just an okay comic book film, and we just don’t think that’s good enough in a world where there’s six multi-million dollar comic boom films per year, especially in a year with Deadpool and Captain America 3. Your mileage may vary, depending on how big a comic book fan you are, in particular how big of an X-Men fan you are. If you want to hear our review and discussion of upcoming films, please enjoy the free podcast, but if you want to hear our detailed spoiler thoughts on the highs and lows of X-Men, you’ll have to be a Club Bald Move member.
Special thanks to Dr. Brandon Devito for once again commissioning another great movie for us to gab about, this time the amazingly deep 2001 sci-fi/noodle bender, “Donnie Darko”. Or… is it that deep? Maybe it really is just totally straightforward, but so batcrap crazy you’re just not prepared to deal with it’s frankness? In this podcast, we sort the Manipulated Dead from the Manipulated Living, as we try to get the Artifact back to the Tangent Universe before it’s too late. We think.
Jim and A.Ron review the first episode of Cinemax’s Outcast series, executive produced and based on a comic book by Robert Kirkman, of The Walking Dead fame/infamy. Then we spend a few minutes laughing at the latest season of Silicon Valley, on HBO. Spoilers ahoy, so step cautiously and let the following timecodes be your guide…
Things just keep getting creepier in this game. This time there’s a huge betrayal by a beloved character, a gathering of the snottiest kids in town, and of course a colossal, time-wasting fuckup by Jim & A.Ron. Join us for the exciting conclusion of episode 4!
A.Ron and Cecily are impressed with the levels of craft employed in the latest episode of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, “A Blade of Grass”. And by craft we mean both acting, cinematography, set design, and of course, witch. Rory Kinnear and Ava Green both attempt to blow each other off screen in a very tightly wound bottle episode, and we’re the richer for it. Join us as we try to unravel the complex mythology being built upon this season, with a little help from the feedback of our fellow fans.

Another fantastic episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Door”, has a ton of the trademark shocking character deaths, and… time travel? Some of you are frightened of the possibility, many more are excited, but it’s certainly an intriguing concept that has us re-examining historical events in a Bran(d) new light. Other topics considered; Sansa’s mild distrust of Jon, the dueling Red Priestesses, a hostile Greyjoy takeover, a mummer’s farce that Arya is not too fond of, and crazy bananas action North o’ the Wall. All this and just vast, unimaginable quantities of feedback, coming right at you.
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
