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?
The floodgates have opened after the release of the newest episode of HBO’s Westworld, “Trompe L’Oeil”. Everyone is a host, unless you think they’re a host, then they’re a double secret human.

If you’ve experienced trauma from watching this episode, never fear. Buffalo buffalo are standing by to provide medical care and O negative blood and will be there to assist soon.
