Bald Move Pulp - Commando (1985)

CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the epitome of badassness, is facing down Green Berets and Freddie Mercury mustaches. Not only will you see Arnold achieve his highest body count in a movie, you’ll see some really awesome stunts pre-CGI age. The script comes from Steven E. de Souza who also penned Die Hard, 48 Hours, and Judge Dread, so the violent act per minute rate is nice and high. Listen in as Jim and A.Ron as they discuss a movie that crashes, smashes, and overall is a raucous good time. 

Watching Westworld - S04E02 – Well Enough Alone – Instant Talk

Is it a simulation? Is it real life? Does your brain hurt yet? Hopefully any cranial discomfort is due to confusion and not black goo between your ears. We’ve got some theories on how this season is going to pan out. Join us as we try to figure out which reality we can trust.

Dungeons and Demogorgons - 409 – Nine: The Piggyback

That was a metalhead finale we can cheer for. It came down to the wire and Eleven’s arms were extending while she screamed, of course. BUT the Duffer Brothers delivered a gut punch that made us remember why we love this show. While Jim is condemning pineapple pizza to The Upside Down, A.Ron is happy to report that this episode delivers in stakes, pacing, and surprises. 

Dungeons and Demogorgons - 408 – Chapter Eight: Papa

The kids are gearing up and you should too. They’re all getting good bonding time before the final episode where we might lose one of the beloved kids. Nancy is smitten with Steve once again. Let’s be honest, who isn’t at this point? And we now have definitive proof that the clocks mean something, A.Ron would like his trophy now. Come back soon for our thoughts on the next mega episode!

For All Mankind - S03E04 – Happy Valley

Yo-ho, yo-ho, it’s a pirate’s life For All Mankind. Raise the mast and hoist the solar wind sails, we’re going to Mars! Will this race to Mars expose Russian spies and give rise to international tensions back home? Or will it all end in a friendly declaration of multi-ownership topped off with a round of hugs? Whoever gets there first has a big decision to make. But the real question, will wily cables be the downfall of the space race?

Department of Homelander Security - S03E07 – Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed

What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterization of Soldier Boy and the not so great use of the “Chris Pratt calming right hand” technique and we’re asking you to stop.

For All Mankind - S03E01-3 – Feedback

We’re discussing feedback for episodes 1-3 of season 3 of For All Mankind. Let us know what we missed, what we got wrong, and bring on those alternate future theories. Jim’s got an interesting one for you: did Yoko Ono kill the inventor of the pop-top can? And yes, there is a tiny bit of evidence to maybe support it. Let us know if you have even more to say about the unintentional villain of the series; the cables!

Watching Westworld - S04E01 – The Auguries

You know that fly that’s hanging out on your wall? Yeah, it’s out to get you. Before your eyes cross reading all those theories on Reddit, check out this episode of Watching Westworld as we gear up for watching the rest of season 4! Where do you stand on what makes a human? And listen to the fun facts A.Ron found on the Internet.

The Offer, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The Orville, Downton Abbey: A New Era

Listener beware, there be SPOILERS ahead.
Jim’s been blacked out from an episode of The Offer, so he’s probably in a rival family. We want to reach out to Burt Reynolds and console him personally over the bad casting of him in The Offer. Episodic Star Trek is what we needed and A.Ron has some strong opinions on the goings on at the Abbey.
From high-ish brow to junk food entertainment, we’re covering the gamut on this episode of OTC.
