Welcome back to the Empire Business, a podcast series designed to give you a more transparent look into the day to day decisions and inner workings of Bald Move, exclusively for our club members. This installment talks about our strategy for building a video audience to compliment our existing podcast one, how we’ll be using Twitch and Youtube in the future to successfully implement that strategy, and what this means for you, as a Club member.
Aron and Cecily are back to dish on Hulu’s Harlots! Charlotte and Lady Fitz team up to pinch the Pinchers, Lady Quigley and Miss Bottomley are Straight Outta Bedlam, while Elizabeth, Fredo, and Lucy dress to the nines to establish their molly house. Also, Pa North is back, but Mama Wells remains unaccounted for. Perhaps the Pinchers’ upcoming real estate deal in America will bring her back into play? If you have ideas on any of these topics or have inside info on the proper care and use of a lambskin, drop us a line using the links below!
We’re back to put Netflix’s Stranger Things 3 to bed until next time. Speaking of next time, what’s the deal with Hopper? How will we even get the gang back together next time, with them scattering tither and yon? Is it really possible we’ll get more Stranger Things by Christmastime? We consider all this plus your closing thoughts and feedback!
Jim, A.Ron and Cecily ponder the future of Apple TV, before entering the weird and wonderful world of HBO’s new comedy series, Los Espookys.
A.Ron and Cecily are here to peddle podcasts for Hulu’s very lush, very fun, Harlots, back now for it’s third tawdry season. We run down all of our favorite characters and their positions and predicaments. How will Charlotte (Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown-Findlay) defend her burning bawdy house from the rash advances of London’s latest pimp Isaac Pincher, played by the always punchable face of Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones Theon Greyjoy)? How will high society deal with Lady Fitz’ (Liv Tyler) embrace of her sordid past? And will Lucy’s dabbling in the molly boy trade put her neck in the noose? We’ll find out in the weeks ahead!
Hey everybody. We have had to temporarily take down the ability to sign up new Club members because shady bags of crap were using our system to automatically test tens of thousands of stolen credit cards. This does not affect any Club member, your account wasn’t compromised, and none of your card information was stolen,…
We finish Netflix’s Stranger Things 3 with the finale episode, “The Battle of Starcourt”. We found it gross, hilarious, thrilling, and touching, which means we thought it was a pretty great ending to a pretty great season of Stranger Things. I can see how people who are kind of sick of the nostalgia pandering, the product placement, and skeptical of some of the more outlandish breaks in the action to allow for drama, but we loved every minute of it.
We resume our mini-marathon of Netflix’s Stranger Things 3 with the penultimate episode, “The Bite”. In which many people are forced to confront their true feelings for other characters, with mixed results. The Mind Flayer is running roughshod over the backwoods of Hawkins, while the thus un-merged Billy stalks down El to eliminate her as threat. The big question in our minds is whether the Duffer Brothers took the long off season to come up with a new way to resolve inter-dimensional threats, or are we in for another screaming session from El? Let’s find out together!
The Mind Flayer’s grotesque plan comes into focus in episode six of Stranger Things 3, “E Pluribus Unum”, the meaning of the title seeming obvious in retrospect. Aside from the citizenry of Hawkins literally pulling themselves together to stop El and the gang, we get some very sympathetic backstory for Billy, Dustin throws a tea party for Erica, Robin and Steve share a moment in a Soviet medical torture facility, and Mike confesses his love for El.
Today we’ll cover Stranger Things 3 up through the sixth episode, “E Pluribus Unum”. We’ll be back tomorrow to finish the season. Next week, we’ll be wrapping up our coverage of ST3, and considering feedback, so make sure you get it in using email and forum links below!
