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.
Come watch the episode with us. If it’s bad, we’ll make fun of it. If it’s good… well, we’ll still make fun of it, just a little less seriously.
Kelly & Tom are back on their own with this recap of The Crown S1E6. They like the episode, but cannot help asking “Why is show?” Scooby-Doo ghostwrites part of UYDS, Princess Margaret has 99 problems, a piece of fluff outweighs Joseph Stalin, the horrifying origins of the Rhodes scholarship is revealed, Wallis Simpson continues…
This lunch thing is really taking on a life of its own. Lets see if we can stick to just an hour this week.
Jim and A.Ron have seen John Wick: Chapter Two, and proclaim it “more of the same”, and we mean that as a compliment. There’s still some shaky plotting when the action dies down, but thankfully that only happens for five, maybe ten minutes tops and then it’s back to headshots and stabbing galore. This film’s body count is astronomical, and if you can’t find some sort of grim humor in Keanu butchering men and women like so much cattle, then this isn’t the film for you. But you probably already knew that. Also! We discuss trailers for upcoming films, then get super spoilery about Mr. Wick, but that’s an exclusive feature for Club Members Only!
Jason from Podcastica and Jim and A.Ron from Bald Move merge our psyches together to form one semi-coherent podcast on FX’s new schizophrenic superhero, Legion. Headed up by Fargo master Noah Hawley, and starring
Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Rachel Keller (Fargo), and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Rec), the show certainly has a fine pedigree. We found it visually striking, with excellent and appealing actors, and admired the way the show throws us head first into an electrified pool of reality-bending mystery and intrigue. We discuss the many strengths and few potential weaknesses of the show, before considering fellow fan feedback and have a brief spoilery look into the future of the show.
A.Ron, Jim, and Cecily have a round table discussion of the latest two episodes of HBO’s The Young Pope. Shocking events happen, some involving people, some involving giant marsupials. But they are shocking. Plus, people try to fool the Pope, but he ain’t having it, is killing someone as a result of fervent prayer a miracle or black magic, Voiello and Sister Mary maybe in need of a private confessional, and of course, as always, just what the heckfire is this show actually about, anyway?
Jim and A.Ron used to be Jehovah’s Witnesses. People are really curious about how that all works. What’s it like being a JW? What do they believe? How did you get out? We’re here to tell you about it. If this isn’t something you’re interested in, it can be safely skipped, as it has nothing to do with our podcasting per se.
Special thanks to Lindsey Blodgett, who commissioned this podcast by virtue of captaining her Bald Move Fantasy Football League team, “Vamonos Pests” to ultimate victory. She claims a podcast for 2016’s Hell or High Water, as her prize. A modern western about bankers robbing the poor of their land and property rights, Hell stars Chris Pine and Ben…
Kelly & Tom are joined by The History Chicks co-host Beckett Graham for their recap of The Crown S1E5. They wax frustrated about their feelings on the DO Dubs, replace King Lane Pryce’s face with Colin Firth’s, note Liz’s lifelong taste in cardigans, discuss the relative tackiness of crowns fictional and factual, participate in some…
