Shayne Bowman from Film Schlubs and Heisenberg Chronicals fame as well as Eric Wahlquist of Personal Arrogants and Direct infamy join A.Ron to discuss the pro/fan edit of Breaking Bad that was dropped on the Internet last week. It reduces one of the greatest television shows in history to a single two hour long movie. What works, what doesn’t, how we’d do it better, and much more are covered. Spoilers for everything Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, you’ve been warned!
Levi from Direct podcasting fame joins Jim and A.Ron all the way from sunny Seattle to talk smack about Zack Snyder (00:00:00), do a deep dive into the universe of SyFy’s hard sci-fi drama that you absolutely should be watching – The Expanse (00:11:30), and then geek out a bit about Edgar Wright’s upcoming film, Baby Driver (01:09:20).
Cecily stops by the studio to chat with A.Ron about HBO’s Girls two episodes into the final season (00:03:12), and then both sing praises about the resurgence of FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s twelfth season (00:21:51). Also, shhh… don’t tell anyone, but we’re watching SyFy’s The Expanse! (00:38:06)
A.Ron, Cecily, and Jim meditate on the ending of HBO’s The Young Pope. What to make of Lenny? How do we feel about the attempted humanization of a pedophile priest? Are we good, or are we bad? The only thing we’re sure of? We’re breathing the same air.
A.Ron, Jim, and Cecily have a round table discussion of the latest two episodes of HBO’s The Young Pope. Shocking events happen, some involving people, some involving giant marsupials. But they are shocking. Plus, people try to fool the Pope, but he ain’t having it, is killing someone as a result of fervent prayer a miracle or black magic, Voiello and Sister Mary maybe in need of a private confessional, and of course, as always, just what the heckfire is this show actually about, anyway?
When we began this podcast, we expected to have a lot of fun laughing at the crazy outfits and Jude Law strutting around chewing scenery left and right. And we were right about that, that is pretty funny and a delight to look at. But these last few episodes have revealed a show with much more substance than we were initially led to believe with the premise. What sort of revolution is the Young Pope wanting to lead? Can the Pope continue to cow heretics and Prime Ministers alike with threats of no win situations and divine retribution? Is Jude Law’s butt proof of the existence of God?
