A.Ron and Cecily bid a fond farewell to Banshee as it, despite all fears to the contrary, manages to pull out of its near fatal tailspin long enough to land a fairly emotionally satisfying, and undeniably badass, series finale. We talk about the many fights, goodbyes, plus the tears and blood shed in this packed episode “Requiem”, and we give our fellow #fanshees their final say as well. But mostly, I think we’ll all remember one simple truth: A.Ron was right.
It’s all out political war as Frank and Claire fight on all fronts, Islamic terror organizations, search engine snooping, the vice presidential nomination, Republican opposition, gun control, Supreme Court nominations, domestic surveillance… it’s like the Underwoods want to touch every third rail in politics simultaneously. What’s next, taking on Social Security? Are they insane? We’ll check back in with you next week on Tuesday to see how they manage to escape from the various predicaments they find themselves, then we’ll wrap things up with the finale and wrap up podcast Friday!
A.Ron and Cecily are kind of lukewarm on this episode 408 of American Horror Show: Freak Show entitled “Blood Bath”. Strong performances by Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange can’t quite elevate the surrounding cast and material, and we were super bummed at Maggie raining on the whole revenge against Papa Candy Striper parade. On a positive note, the Dandy reclaims a lot of his creepy swag. All this, plus lots more opinions, and some fellow fan feedback. Enjoy!
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Labor Day. Jim and I were hard at work making podcasts in the lab, and this is the latest result. We talk about all things Gus, Jesse’s shirt, Chilean history, perfect storms, the significance of eyeballs, and more listener feedback than you can shake a GPS tracker at.
Well, here is our little experimental insta-cast! It’s 15 minutes of raw, un-rehearsed reaction. It doesn’t have a full recap, or in-depth analysis, we ask more questions than anything else. Let us know what you think. If you like it, and we can fit it into our schedules, we’ll try it again.
