Jim and A.Ron are here to talk about HBO. Both in general terms, because we’re not big fans of the way the new executive overseeing the network is talking about our baby, and in specifics, namely the new mini-series, Sharp Objects. Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, it features Amy Addams as a journalist who returns to the small town she grew up in to investigate a series of killings. Giving us strong True Detective vibes, the mystery is intriguing and the characters are vivid and well developed just one episode in. We’ll be back with weekly coverage of Sharp Objects, if you’d like to join the conversation, use the links below!

Jim, A.Ron, and Cecily get together to discuss their excitement about the new HBO show, The Young Pope. It managed to surpass our already bonkers expectations we had for over the top ridiculousness, as well as surprise us with it’s heights of cinematography and storytelling. Be on the lookout for more Young Pope, and more Bald Move TV on this feed in 2017!
Jim and A.Ron are incredibly impressed with the first episode of HBO’s new sci-fi western, Westworld. It was one of the best pilots we’ve ever seen, packing an amazing amount of mystery and world-building in just one hour, laying a great foundation for the rest of first season. We discuss our relative comfort with the co
And now our Watch begins. Jim and I start the process of backfilling our Game of Thrones Podcast catalog by revisiting the series premiere, episode 101, “Winter is Coming”. If you’re new to the series, don’t fear, we don’t spoil anything for future episodes, but we do have a Spoiler section at the end of our podcast for people who want to stick around and talk about the show in the broader context of having seen all six seasons or read all of the available books.
Jim and I have a lot of thoughts on the 90 minute pilot of Fear the Walking Dead, episode 101, “Pilot”. Is Nick’s portrayal of a drug addled teen realistic, or just annoying? Is the step father Travis well meaning, or an enabler? Is the mom Madison smart and savvy, or frustratingly in denial about what’s going on around her? Will we as the audience have fun watching and waiting for the characters to catch up to our knowledge of basic Zombology, or will it be tedious? And just when will Matt wake up and realize he can do so much better than the patronizing and frankly douchey Alicia? The jury is still out on a lot of these questions, but we along with our fellow fans sift through the episode for as many answers and indicators as we can.

Jim and A.Ron had a lot of complex feelings about the first episode of Better Call Saul, “Uno”. A.Ron enjoyed the super sized portion of Saul, but worried about the sustainability of the rate of easter eggs and classic BrBa character appearances, while Jim was bothered by pacing. We also talked about the Aztek of Azteks, dent trash cans, scams both large and small, and much more. Plus a ton of great feedback, the fans are bringing it from week one! Hope you enjoy, and stay tuned tomorrow for our in depth coverage of episode 102, “Mijo”!
