American Horror Story Podcast – 604 – “Chapter 4”

It’s fitting that the worst, most disjointed American Horror Story episode (thus far!) from the “My Roanoke Nightmare” season would be an homage to the worst, most disjointed season of AHS of all time. But still, we can’t help but look forward to episode six when Murphy and company have promised this season is going to go bonkers on us. Until then, we’re having fun trying to wrap our heads around the bizarre decisions these terrible people are making, squirming at some of the inventive torture murders on display, and trying out the latest Cathy Bates accents. One more week of homage until the hammer drops! See you then.

Game of Thrones – 604 – Book of the Stranger

Jim and A.Ron, after careful sober analysis, declare “Book of the Stranger” an awesome episode of HBO’s Game of Thornes. In an impressive display of girl power, Sansa and Jon team up to take back the North, Cersie and the Queen of Thorns conspire to take back King’s Landing, Yara helps her brother find his spine, Dany flips braziers and sets fire to many a Khal’s ambition, and Osha… well, Osha finds that there are still limits to what a gal can get away with in Westeros, but we’re mostly okay with that because it seems like Ramsey already has a noose around his neck and doesn’t even know it. And that’s not even the half of it. Pink letters, Tormund and Brienne shipping, Littlefinger scheming, and much more coming straight up.

Game of Thrones – 604 – Book of the Stranger – Instant Take

After seeing episode 604 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Book of the Stranger”, Jim wants to shout from the rooftops “TARGARYENS ARE FIREPROOF!!” I desperately want to argue with him, but he’s right. About this particular Targaryen in this TV show version of Westeros, anyway, and it was admittedly cool. Me, I liked the emotional heft and tingles from the Sansa and Jon reunion, the Theon and Yara/Asha reunion, I even enjoyed the Littlefinger / Robin reunion was fairly awesome. Very interesting to see what people ultimately think of this episodes, especially book fans… has Martin been lying to us this whole time, or are the Double Ds making some smart and cinema friendly edits? We’ll talk more on the full podcast coming out Tuesday!

Watching Dead – 604 – Here’s Not Here

Jim and A.Ron have had a few days to ponder the Morgan-centric episode of The Walking Dead, “Here’s Not Here”, and while it still suffers from some conceptual flaws and it’s unfortunate place in the meta-narrative, there is still a lot to like here… We discuss the finer points of goat milking, the zeal and desperation of the newly converted, the problems of an “all life is precious” worldview during a zombie apocalypse, ponder Eastman’s Goo-goo Cluster supply as well as his possible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle connections, and consider a metric ton of feedback. See you next week!

Watching Dead – 604 – Here’s Not Here – Instant Take

Episode 604 of The Walking Dead, “Here’s Not Here”, seems like at least an above average episode, featuring superior acting from the two leads as well as a reasonably interesting and satisfying backstory to Morgan’s otherwise inexplicable “all life is precious” philosophy. But the problem is, Glen just got killed and Rick has one foot in the grave, the other on the doorstep of a crappy run down RV, and that has a way of making 90 minutes of good television seem tedious.  That’s our first impression, what’s yours?  Let us know using the links below, and we’ll regroup here Tuesday to sort it all out.
