Bald Move TV – Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Special thanks to Tyler Shumway for commissioning the 2008 musical web series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog for our review. The creative fruit of the 2007 WGA strike, Joss Whedon employed his Hollywood friends and family for a whimsical take on Superheroes and Villains, casting Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion as a dynamic duo struggling to control the heart of their city, and one particular woman who dwells within it. From that fairly silly premise, a surprisingly good musical with plenty of heart is born. Also, there is an accompanying musical commentary track to go along with it. That’s something you don’t see every day.

Better Cast Saul – 310 – Lantern

Season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul is in the books with the finale episode, “Lantern”. The show is really on fire this season. As confirmed #F&%@Chuck supporters, we’re delighted to see Chuck get roasted, which left a warm and toasty feeling in our hearts. Some plot points and character details might seemed burnt out, but we think the Villigang is just blowing smoke our direction to distract us. We are all hot for what seems like an inevitable Nacho / Gus team up, maybe they can hash out the details at an ABQ BBQ to benefit local fire fighters? And while Kim and Jimmy’s chemistry isn’t as smoldering as we would like, Patrick Fabians performance is searing as Howard burns his bridges with Chuck who goes down in flames. If they keep turning up the heat, who knows how scorching this show can get?!

Fargo – 309 – Aporia

FX’s Fargo continues on it’s hot run with this week’s episode, “Aporia”. Jim and I break down the highlights of this installment, Emmitt tells Gloria a whole lot of truth, Wrench and Nikki get Biblical on Varga’s gang, Moe ruins everything, as per usual. and we’re honestly terrified anytime the camera starts to pull focus on David Thewlis’s mouth. Good god, this show ought to have driven stock in fluoride up 500%. We wrap things up with a little bit of dead pool for the finale, and a little bit of feedback from your fellow fans. See you next week!

LWJ&A – 6/16/2017

Geek Chic closing, another ridiculous advertisement, plenty of Game of Thrones talk and a bunch more of your questions on this week’s Lunch with Jim & A.Ron.

Bald Movies – Shutter Island (2010)

For this week’s commissioned podcast, we got to watch one of the many great collaborations between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, the 2010 psychological thriller, Shutter Island. While neither of us think this movie cracks the top 5 of either gentlemen’s work, it is an effective film with a pretty good twist, and features a solid Leo performance that drifts into “great” territory later in the film, and has great supporting performances in Ben Kingsley, Mark Ruffalo, Max von Sydow, among many others.

Better Cast Saul – 309 – Fall

Jim and A.Ron are now on the #F&%$EveryBodyButKim bandwagon, now that Jimmy has really fallen so morally and ethically far in AMC’s Better Call Saul, appropriately titled “Fall”. It’s shocking, disgusting, and horrific, and it’s hard to see how anyone we remotely care about makes it out of this season unscathed. Poor Kim. Poor Irene. We’ll have to see what devastation the Villigang has in store for us next week for the season finale…
