Mailbag – 6/15/2015

People occasionally send us stuff. We had a perfect storm of awesome gifts and other mail this week so we thought we’d show it off.


Penny Earful – 307 – “Ebb Tide”

A.Ron and Cecily review their thoughts on the surprise penultimate (more on this later!) episode of Penny Dreadful, “Ebb Tide”. They RISE UP! against whore parties. They RISE! UP! against Billy Joel. Then they present their necks to Bruce Springsteen, before taking a jaunty horse drawn carriage on the way to being chloroformed and made into proper podcasters. All recoil in horror.


Game of Thrones – 608 – No One

Jim and A.Ron still don’t like the resolution of Arya’s Bravosi plotline, but admire a lot of the other goings on in the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “No One”. The problem is, that’s a big part of the episode and over two years of investment into Arya’s Faceless Men training, so, it’s no minor thing. Other topics include the duality of Jaime, what’s next for King’s Landing, and is Sandor considering a second career as people’s champion?

Magnum, P.I.

Bald Move TV – Magnum, P.I. (1980) – Commissioned Podcast

Special thanks to Dave Dillon for commissioning the 1980s hit television series, Magnum P.I. We weren’t sure what to expect, but after seeing the two part series premiere, “Don’t Eat the Snow in Hawaii”, we’re ready to recognize the greatness of the Mustachioed One. From war scenes that Punch waaayyyy above their weight, to Magnum perving on French Stews, we found the series consistently entertaining.

Family Meeting

Family Meeting – Too Much Mumbling, Not Enough Ska

Kelly & Tom are joined for their recap of Peaky Blinders S3E2 by the esteemed Dowager Cousin Jackie! They discuss non-vaginal sapphires, Soviet SVU, acceptable amounts of tea slurping, and whether or not pizza is allowed in Britain.


Game of Thrones – 608 – No One – Instant Take

Jim and A.Ron are not sure what to make of Arya’s plot tonight during the latest episode of Game of Thrones, “No One”. And yes, while the Mountain wrecking and Sandor chopping was admittedly cool, and the 30 seconds of Dany kind of made up for Tyrion’s stale comedy stylings, and far be it from us to look askance at any scene where Jaime and Brienne make moon eyes at each other and speak of honor, we’re kind of bummed that the King and High Sparrow seems to have dumped a bucket of cold water on our Cleganebowl hopes. No man is as accursed as a Hypeslayer, Tommen.


Game of Thrones – 607 – The Broken Man – 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.
