Cecily and A.Ron grab the mics to talk about the latest episodes of Hulu’s grim cautionary fableThe Handmaid’s Tale, Starz’s incredibly violent and erotic American Gods (00:26:18), and Cecily talks a bit about the latest season of Netflix’s Sense8 (00:52:30).
Oh, man, the toughest week to call yet! The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Fargo all had particularly good weeks, and we still have to rank them for some inane, arbitrary reason. Who will be king/queen of the week? Also, we give an update on HBO’s Silicon Valley (00:09:36) before signing off for the week.
This week was even harder to call than normal, and for Jim it came down to an artful final shot, and for A.Ron the combination of a powerful new villain and an appealing buddy cop team up carried the day. With a weak this good, there are no losers, only winners.
A.Ron and Cecily give their thoughts on what we’ve been watching the past week. Dear White People on Netflix offers an look inside race relations from the perspectives of black students attending an Ivy League college, The Handmaid’s Tale (00:24:12) offers a horrifying look into a culture where women have no rights to their own minds and bodies, while American Gods (00:47:42) is bewilderingly cool and awesome to look at, and probably a lot more, but we’ll have to get back on you on that one.
Jim and A.Ron debate on who to crown between The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Fargo, before arriving at a split decision! Then we have some brief non-spoiler talk on American Gods and The Handmaid’s Tale before signing off.
Jim and A.Ron begin by discussing the Netflix reboot of the classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 (00:00:10), before debating Who Won the Week? (00:10:31) A real nail biter, this time, as Fargo, The Leftovers, and Better Call Saul all brought the thunder. Plus! Bonus discussion on the season premier of HBO’s Silicon Valley. (00:16:46)
Jim and A.Ron discuss their feelings about SyFy’s season two of The Expanse. Should you be watching it? What worked? What didn’t? What are our hopes and fears for season three?
Jim and A.Ron consider “Who Won the Week?” between The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Fargo before Cecily crashes the studio and wraps up the season, and series, for HBO’s Girls (00:10:31).
On this episode of Bald Move TV, Cecily and I give our thoughts on the final season of HBO’s Girls so far (00:00:00), and discuss the entirety of season 2 of Netflix’s Love (00:35:56), starring Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust. We learn new things about life, love, and each other. Spoiler! Cecily files for divorce.
Shayne Bowman from Film Schlubs and Heisenberg Chronicals fame as well as Eric Wahlquist of Personal Arrogants and Direct infamy join A.Ron to discuss the pro/fan edit of Breaking Bad that was dropped on the Internet last week. It reduces one of the greatest television shows in history to a single two hour long movie. What works, what doesn’t, how we’d do it better, and much more are covered. Spoilers for everything Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, you’ve been warned!
