And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show. In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s strength, Robb’s toughness, and Jon’s girlish good looks. We’ll have more every Tuesday over the next ten weeks, so settle in for a long trip down GoT memory lane! See you next week!
Jim and A.Ron are incredibly impressed with the season two premiere of USA’s Mr. Robot, entitled “eps2.0_unk4sk_pt1.tc” and “eps2.0_unm4sk_pt2.tc”. We do a deep dive of the character beats and themes of the episode, as well as popular fan concepts like the “Prison Theory”, before considering some fellow-fan feedback.
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.
Daredevil season two has started! We’ll be watching and reviewing a new episode every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from here on out until we’ve finished the whole thing. As we rejoin our heroes in episode 201, “Bang”, local gangs have been jockeying to occupy the power vacuum left by the Kingpin’s exit last season, and Matt might have new competition in the “get tough on crime” game.
Better Call Saul is back, and we have a lot to say about the new episode, 201, “Switch”! We got all the angles covered, from fictional high end tequila to the hot new breakfast cereal, Chocobolo, hummingbird and douchey investor cameos, Kim/Jimmy relational angst, and all points in between. Plus, a lot of great fellow fan feedback and some bonus legal analysis.
Jim and A.Ron are flabbergasted at what Fargo is able to get away with doing and still remain Fargo. It’s pretty incredible, actually. We discuss the mid-west gang war that provides the broad strokes of the season, lay odds on how many different way’s A.Ron will manage to pronounce “Gerhardt”, talk about Jesse Plemmon’s enduring “MATT DAY-MON” impression that he keeps finding ways to get paid for, and talk about our first impressions of the weird and wonderful characters we’ve met so far. All this, and some insanely smart emails from our impressively educated fellow fans, and you got your self a real hummer of a podcast, you betcha!
We’ve got our bags backed and we’ve boarded the green park service buses en route to Jarden, Texas, to take in the sights of the season two premiere of “The Leftoves”, “Axis Mundi”. Pre-historic births, John C. Riley camping on a column, the slaughter of goats, bird resurrection, firemen burning down houses, shocking “Perfect Stranger” and “Family Matters” tie ins… this episode met and exceeded our weirdness expectations and left us wanting more. And it wouldn’t be a “The Leftovers” podcast with out some bark at the moon crazy theories and speculation, some from us, some from you the fellow fan. Please, enjoy!
Starts approximately at 3:30 pm 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.
After seeing the premiere, Jim & A.Ron are lukewarm on the premiere but still on board and ready for the dots to connect. The psychosphere is a little more subtle but still in full effect. Check out the podcast for our thoughts, your feedback and a big ol’ sniff of that LA smog psychosphere.
After our short break, we’re back with more Breaking Bad rewatch podcasts. This week it’s the premiere of season 2. Will this season hold up to our memory of it (or lack thereof)? We’ll find out – 13 weeks from now.
