A.Ron and Jim are primed and ready for season four of USA’s Mr. Robot. Check back with us next week for our full coverage podcast on the Mr. Robot premiere!
In the latest Empire Business installment, Jim and A.Ron talk about the future of commissioned podcasts.
Cecily and A.Ron dissect the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Mr. Jingles”. We discuss all hyper hiker ghostly and/or time traveling theories, Brooke’s very bad day, the finer points of hog washing, and question how we can possibly endure the world’s longest night. Then in the mailbag, a listener blows our minds with evidence of just how long this night may last.
Jim and A.Ron discuss the latest episode of The Deuce, ‘Normal is a Lie’. The women of The Deuce are fighting for rights to their own money and choices about their own body. The men of The Deuce, (or Deucey’s as A.Ron calls them) are are either pushing boundaries and taking advantage, or too stupid to…
It’s almost time for Damon Lindelof’s new show, Watchmen, to premiere. We couldn’t be more excited so we’ve decided to record a preview episode to kick things off a little early.
Get ready. We’re just a few weeks away!
Cecily and A.Ron dish on the premiere episode of FX’s American Horror Story: 1984, “Camp Redwood”. It’s a great looking episode where the cast is having a lot of fun, and there are 1980’s horror tropes aplenty, but that fun comes at the expense of , well… the Horror. Still, fun counts a lot for us, so we’re all in.
Jim and I went to the outer reaches of the solar system with Ad Astra, the paradoxically slow moving, absorbing, thoughtful, but action packed sci-fi film starring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones. We spend the better part of an hour talking about what we thought the film was about, and the strange, ultra-realistic yet dreamy quality to a lot of the proceedings. I think we both admired the film more than loved it, but I at least wouldn’t be surprised if further contemplation (and watches) revealed some hidden depths.
A.Ron and Cecily have seen the latest from Baron Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey the movie. We had a grand time catching up with the family, and we even met some new members. The King and Queen are coming to stay, which means there’s lots to do!
The Deuce is under a lot of pressure in “Morta di Fame”, as disease, drugs, greedy gangsters and corrupt politicians all angle to take a bite out of its inhabitants. It’s hard to see how established players like Rudy, Vincent, and Paul are going to make it out okay, but there is a glimmer of hope that Frankie just might be able to survive by being to small time to worry about. Meanwhile on the West coast Lori is waking up to the fact that she’s traded a pimp named Cici for one named Kiki. Grim proceedings all around, lightened only by Bobby’s hair piece and Frankie’s fledgling paper bag porn empire. Plus, we get educated on all things Greenwich in the feedback section!
We’ve been through another big season of Club Bald Move sales so it’s time, once again, to update you all on how it’s going.
