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.
Jason from Podcastica and Jim and A.Ron from Bald Move merge our psyches together to form one semi-coherent podcast on FX’s new schizophrenic superhero, Legion. Headed up by Fargo master Noah Hawley, and starring
Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Rachel Keller (Fargo), and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Rec), the show certainly has a fine pedigree. We found it visually striking, with excellent and appealing actors, and admired the way the show throws us head first into an electrified pool of reality-bending mystery and intrigue. We discuss the many strengths and few potential weaknesses of the show, before considering fellow fan feedback and have a brief spoilery look into the future of the show.
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?
Jim, A.Ron and Cecily talk about the perplexing third episode of HBO’s The Young Pope. Does anyone around here believe in God? Does anyone not? Is God real? How heavy is his weight? Is the kangaroo God? Your guess is as good as ours, and thankfully the show is gorgeous and intriguing enough to keep us watching even when we have no idea what’s going on.
