Game of Thrones – 805 – The Bells – SpoiLore Edition

Jim and I try to sort through everyone’s reactions and feelings about “The Bells”, as well as people’s reactions to our reactions! In a wide ranging podcast, we discuss what we’re still hoping to see in next week’s finale episode, what Dany’s descent to madness means in the context of portrayals of heroic women, thoughts on capital punishment and vengeance, and defenses and deconstructions of Arya and Jaime’s arcs. All this plus a ton of great feedback from you, the listener. Just one more episode left, we’ll see you Sunday night to discuss!

American Horror Story Podcast – 805 – Boy Wonder – Instant Take

Cecily and A.Ron have declared Condition BANGER for this episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse, “Boy Wonder”. This episode has some solid horror and creepy visuals and themes, smartly builds upon the show’s existing Witch lore, we continue to be amused by the oppressed Warlocks, and we get more Lily Rabe and more STEVIE NICKS! We love Stevie Nicks. But we also ask, what exactly is she doing here? Like, in universe, Stevie Nicks is a witch. Who’s only power seems to be enrapturing Lily Rabe. Perhaps that’s enough. I mean, it’s better than Coco’s amazing gluten power. Don’t forget to email us, and we’ll be back Friday for FEEDBACK!
