Special preview! Fake news, oppressive patriarchy, and an overall impending sense of doom: Join “Aunt” Kelly Anneken and Molly “Ofmitchell” Sanchez as we discuss this and more in Red All Over, a podcast based on The Handmaid’s Tale and weirdly not on current events.
We’re coming in a little hot this week in advance of A.Ron’s gulf-bound status. There are still plenty of questions to answer though.
Jim and A.Ron are getting ready for season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul, by reviewing the advance material and last year’s continuing plots. What will Chuck do with Jimmy’s confession tape? Who is trying to come between Mike and his vengeance, and why? Can Jimmy and Kim find a way to work together in their separate but equal law firm? When will Gus rear his handsome, mild-mannered head? All this and more is discussed. See you next week for the premiere!
This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”
Jim and A.Ron are surprisingly underwhelmed by the live action version of the classic sci-fi anime, Ghost in the Shell. Unimpressive from a philosophic and even action standpoint, both it’s ideas and stunts seemed largely tired and less alive than the half human half robot protagonist of the movie. The cast and crew give it a valiant try, but ultimately the slavish devotion to the source material is a millstone around the film’s neck that it can never quite shrug off. Enjoy the spoiler free movie and preview discussion, but if you want to hear our full spoiler filled thoughts you’re going to have to be a Club Member!
by The Walking Dead’s season 7 finale, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”. Well staged action and CGI stunt tigers get the pulse pounding, but it’s not long before well worn bad habits start to get in the way; a convoluted plot by Negan to once again impress upon Rick that resistance is futile, literal Garbage People, and Sasha’s “I’ll save you from the situation I helped create” heroics, all these unfortunately mire the proceedings. But that’s not our last work on the subject. We’ll be back later this week to wrap up the season, so get your email in before Thursday if you want to be heard!
Just in time for the Season 7 finale, Jim and A.Ron vanquish TellTale’s The Walking Dead: Michonne – Episode 3, AKA Bad Guy Michonne, AKA The Stormin’ Norma Saga. Michonne is responsible for the safety and well being of several post apocalyptic youngsters foolishly making a last stand in their familial home. Yeah, this won’t end well. You gotta be a Club Member to watch it, but the good news is you can join now and get a risk free 30 day trial!
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.
Kelly and Tom belatedly return with the promised Mailbag Fun Dust-Up! Thanks to all the cousins who sent in telegrams, this (literally) wouldn’t be possible without you!
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.
