We’re starting a new feature designed to give you a more transparent look into the day to day decisions and inner workings of the Bald Move empire, exclusively for our club members. In honor of one of the all-time great series and the one that gave us our start, we’re calling it Empire Business. It isn’t meant to be a regular weekly feature, it’s more of a “whenever we have something interesting to talk about and remember to turn the mics on” kind of thing. We hope you enjoy it.
Jim and A.Ron are fired up for the final season of HBO’s The Leftovers. We discuss the timeline, hints and previews from the season trailers, Noah’s Ark and how it might relate to this season, A.Ron and Jim trading roles as Man of Faith and Man of Science, and much, much more.
Jim and A.Ron say goodbye once again to AMC’s The Walking Dead, but first, we have some things to get off our chest and a ton of feedback from our fellow fans to share. What lane does the Dead need to stay in? How long can it last? How big a star is Andrew Lincoln, anyway? Will the War with Negan last 8 episodes, or 16? Just how many episodes of Trash People backstory will we be inflicted with? Should Gimple and company just let Heath go? All this and more will be discussed!
Special preview! Fake news, oppressive patriarchy, and an overall impending sense of doom: Join “Aunt” Kelly Anneken and Molly “Ofmitchell” Sanchez as we discuss this and more in Red All Over, a podcast based on The Handmaid’s Tale and weirdly not on current events.
Jim and A.Ron are getting ready for season three of AMC’s Better Call Saul, by reviewing the advance material and last year’s continuing plots. What will Chuck do with Jimmy’s confession tape? Who is trying to come between Mike and his vengeance, and why? Can Jimmy and Kim find a way to work together in their separate but equal law firm? When will Gus rear his handsome, mild-mannered head? All this and more is discussed. See you next week for the premiere!
This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”
Jim and A.Ron are surprisingly underwhelmed by the live action version of the classic sci-fi anime, Ghost in the Shell. Unimpressive from a philosophic and even action standpoint, both it’s ideas and stunts seemed largely tired and less alive than the half human half robot protagonist of the movie. The cast and crew give it a valiant try, but ultimately the slavish devotion to the source material is a millstone around the film’s neck that it can never quite shrug off. Enjoy the spoiler free movie and preview discussion, but if you want to hear our full spoiler filled thoughts you’re going to have to be a Club Member!
by The Walking Dead’s season 7 finale, “The First Day of the Rest of Your Life”. Well staged action and CGI stunt tigers get the pulse pounding, but it’s not long before well worn bad habits start to get in the way; a convoluted plot by Negan to once again impress upon Rick that resistance is futile, literal Garbage People, and Sasha’s “I’ll save you from the situation I helped create” heroics, all these unfortunately mire the proceedings. But that’s not our last work on the subject. We’ll be back later this week to wrap up the season, so get your email in before Thursday if you want to be heard!
Kelly and Tom belatedly return with the promised Mailbag Fun Dust-Up! Thanks to all the cousins who sent in telegrams, this (literally) wouldn’t be possible without you!
This Bald Movie Commissioned Podcast is for Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano. It was made possible by the following people, who pooled their funds together to make this community commission possible. Special thanks to Elina V., Ryan Q., Mike M., BritBandicoot, Dcaine68, Latent K, TheWilliam85, Jaimie T., Alex M, Geraud DeL, Dmkolls, and Dplowery. With that said, this movie is incredible. The acting is on another level, the visuals are gorgeous, the story imminently watchable. If you’ve seen the movie, you know how incredibly intimidating drinking milkshakes can be, and if you haven’t, you’ll soon find out.
