Jason, A.Ron and Jim get a bit of an Empire Strikes Back vibe from the second episode of FX’s Legion, which tones down a bit of the psychedelic trippiness in favor of world and character building. Join us for a stroll through David’s museum of memories as we talk about the highlights and further mysteries of shadowy government agencies and the mutants who rebel against them.
Two episodes in two nights, that’s the kind of papal performance you expect from a young, virile Pope. A pope with power! A.Ron has cooled a bit on the second episode, but Cecily and Jim are still picking up what The Young Pope is laying down. Will Lenny end up alienating every practicing Catholic on earth? Will the kangaroo ever have a speaking role? And how many pontiff puns can we produce, anyway? Stay tuned and find out!
Jim and A.Ron have a lot to say about the second episode of HBO’s new hit series, Westworld, entitled “Chestnut”. We talk a lot about the developing characters and mysteries of the show, trying to figure out what Bernard and Dr. Ford are up to, while trying to understand the motives and mind of Dolores. Along the way, we find out surprising things about each other, like our true feelings about dusty old prospectors found lying in the street. It’s quiet beautiful, really. And hey, we got lots of feedback, theories, and analysis by our dashing and witty listeners!
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.
Jim and A.Ron discuss episode 102 of Fear the Walking Dead, “So Close, Yet So Far”. Jim thinks it’s an improvement from the Pilot episode, while A.Ron sees it as more evidence that the TWD team is doubling down on some of the parent show’s worse tendencies and tropes. We discuss not discussing things, how many times Madison will get Calvin’d, Tobias as a potential post-apocalyptic survival god, tons of your great feedback, and much more.
Starts approximately at 2:45pm EST! Come watch us record, live and in the Bald Move studio. It’s the fastest way to get our podcast, and see all the behind the scenes stuff including the occasional flubs and glitches.
Jim and A.Ron get further into the world of True Detective, as we start hallucinating birds, investigating seedy white trash mobile homes of ill repute, and explore new leads in the murder of one Dora Lange.
Welcome to our coverage of Better Call Saul episode 102, “Mijo”! We talk Tuco’s culinary skills, Jimmy’s gift of gab, a possible Nacho connection to the classic Breaking Bad series, some gun related anachronisms, and Wrong Swanson. All this, tons of feedback, and the barest whiff of a spoiler section, and don’t worry, it’s safely tucked away at the very end of the episode if you don’t want to hear it. See you next week!
Jim and A.Ron take a look at the first two episodes of Better Call Saul, “Uno” and “Mijo”, and shoot from the hip. What did we like? What concerns us? What would Breaking Bad virgins make of this? The show has enourmous potential, but equally enourmous expectations. Can’t wait to see what you guys think…
