On this episode of Bald Move TV, Cecily and I give our thoughts on the final season of HBO’s Girls so far (00:00:00), and discuss the entirety of season 2 of Netflix’s Love (00:35:56), starring Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust. We learn new things about life, love, and each other. Spoiler! Cecily files for divorce.
With heavy hearts Cecily and A.Ron close the books on season four of Orange is the New Black, with final thoughts on the final episode, “Toast Can’t Never Be Bread Again”, as well as the season as a whole.
Pi’ilani joins A.Ron to discuss the shocking and heart wrenching events of the three episode stretch comprised of “Bunny, Skull, Bunny, Skull”, “People Persons”, and “The Animals”. Are we sure this is still a comedy? Be sure to come back next week for the finale episode and our season four wrap up!
A.Ron and Cecily discuss the highs and lows of the next trio of episodes of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, episode 407-409, “It Sounded Nicer in My Head”, “Friends in Low Places”, and “Turn Table Turn”.
Pi’ilani returns to the roster to discuss Netflix’s Orange is the New Black episodes 404-406 including “Doctor Psycho”, “We’ll Always Have Baltimore”, “Piece of Sh*t”!
A.Ron and Cecily are back to cover the new season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black series, starting with the first three episodes, “Work That Body for Me”, “Power Suit”, and “(Don’t) Say Anything”.
Jim and A.Ron blitz through the final three episodes (“.380”, “The Dark at the End of the Tunnel”, and “A Cold Day in Hell’s Kitchen”) of Netflix’s Daredevil and fight hundreds of mystic ninja warriors just so we can get our takes and yours out while they’re still hot. Ultimately, we’re conflicted, as overall this is a strong (but not stronger) follow up to the promise of the first season, but there are enough dangling threads and murky motivations and plot points to be as frustrating as it is satisfying.
Daredevil’s episode 210, “The Man in the Box” is a helluva episode. Featuring a magnetic confrontation between the Kingpin and Matt, a nice mystery for Karen to sink her teeth into, some creepy Children of the Corn vibes, not to mention more ninjas than you can shake a shuriken at, we’re really pleased with the shape Daredevil has rounded itself into coming down the home stretch.
Daredevil really kicks it up a notch in episode 209, “Seven Minutes in Heaven”! Featuring several fantastic and brutal fights and some equally brutal emotional confrontations, the Kingpin takes over prison, the Punisher gets unleashed upon Hell’s Kitchen once more, and Matt walks a lonely path to protect his friends and loved ones from danger even as The Hand’s latest attempt to create a Dark Sky takes a creepy, disturbing turn.
Daredevil episode 208, “Guilty as Sin” is before the jury. What will be the verdict? On the one hand, we have great fight scenes, a rapidly expanding mythology that’s managing to stay on Jim’s sweet side, and some nice court scenes with Foggy. On the other hand, we’re really wondering WTF is going on with Frank, there are some pretty bad courtroom scenes with Foggy and Karen, and Matt’s punch in leiu of dialog is wearing out us as fast as it is Stick. See you Wednesday!
