It’s the 30th Anniversary of the gangster classic, Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese has a long history making gangster movies. We covered his latest one, The Irishman, already but now we’re going back to cover his most famous one. It’s a wild ride, beginning with the Marty insight into the allure of the criminal underworld that you’ve come to expect and culminating in one of the all-time great scenes of chaos and paranoia. Check out the podcast to hear what we thought about it thirty years later.
Bald Move Pulp is where you can get your fix of robots, aliens, action space adventures, and everything in between; on television or on the big screen. Pulp was not made for serious drama, if that’s your thing, you might be looking for Bald Move Prestige.
It’s a big one this week. We finally get to see why Michonne is so hell-bent on keeping Alexandria isolated from the rest of the world, and it involves the murder of a bunch of children.

This week we talk about root beer cravings, the demise of the “mexican pizza”, an update on Jim’s PlayStation modding dreams, A.Ron’s MAME cabinet project for the winter, and of course, the 19th anniversary of 9/11.
With their mission at a dead end, Butcher has to get lucky if he’s going to try to track down Becca. A-Train gets an unwelcome surprise as Homelander tries to retake control of The Seven.

This week on Off the Clock we’re talking about the first three episodes of Ridley Scott’s turn to the small screen, the far future sci-fi series “Raised by Wolves.” Then we’re continuing our coverage of the cosmic / mundane horror series “Lovecraft Country” with episodes 3 & 4.
Charlie Kaufman’s new film is out on Netflix right now and we’ve decided that it’s a good idea to cover a movie about general anxiety, hopelessness and the futility of life while we’re in a full-blown lockdown pandemic. Join us, won’t you?
