In Episode #5, originally aired on 11.15.14: Jim and A.Ron throw down in the Skymall challenge. It’s simple, we take an issue of Skymall, and take turns drafting our dream items from each page. In the end, we judge who had the best haul. Who wins? YOU DECIDE!
no xmas lolz for jim & a.Ron. darelliot gives a run-around. krista plays hookie. quiet pls, the podcast is on.
Cecily and A.Ron see the dawn for the first time inthe latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Red Dawn”. They ponder the rules of being a ghost, the consequences of sex, the importance of rad hair and a cheery disposition, and of course, a fun new traveling road show.
This episode of The Deuce has re-surfaced a lot of difficult feelings for Jim and A.Ron. Paul meets Tod’s parents and it has us thinking about our own parents, beliefs, and mortality. Jim made an accurate prediction about Frankie’s home movie, but it’s still a touching family moment. Eileen also confronts her idea of family…
In this episode of Rick and Morty, Jim and A.Ron talk about The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy, and a few conspiracies of their own. They were joined on this podcast by Paul Vigna, reporter at the Wall Street Journal.
The final episode of HBO’s Chernobyl, “Vichnaya Pamyat” derives it’s title from the traditional prayer said at the end of an Eastern Orthadox funeral; “memory eternal”. Our hope is that everyone who has watched this and will watch this in the years to come takes to heart this encomium, that we need to remember the cost of lies, the cost of taking our eye off our institutions and systems we setup to keep us safe and prosperous, because if you fail to do so the cost only becomes more dear. Thanks for watching along with us, we’ve loved having you all along for the experience.
Jim and A.Ron talk about another hard to watch but impossible to turn away from episode of HBO’s Sharp Objects, “Closer”. The town of Wind Gap celebrates what could charitably be called a a dark and regrettable moment from their past history, while Adora tortures her daughter Camille in ways that would make Ramsay Bolton blush. Not much is advanced in terms of the central murder mystery, but we get the sense that this show is about to take a big step off a deep, dark cliff that is this toxic town and the damage it’s done to the people unfortunate enough to have been stuck there.
This locked-in death train comes to a screeching halt at its final destination in the finale episode of Bad Guy Javi. How did we do? Stay tuned for the season overview at the very end to find out.
The grande finale is upon us… for the second time. Join us as we semi-wonder at all of the things we’ve seen once before. Will it turn out exactly the same as the garbled mess of a video that we were unable to release the first time we recorded it? Will Mr. Wells’ career and body die on the vine and wither away to nothing? Only this episode will tell.
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?
