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”.
A.Ron and Cecily bid a fond farewell to Banshee as it, despite all fears to the contrary, manages to pull out of its near fatal tailspin long enough to land a fairly emotionally satisfying, and undeniably badass, series finale. We talk about the many fights, goodbyes, plus the tears and blood shed in this packed episode “Requiem”, and we give our fellow #fanshees their final say as well. But mostly, I think we’ll all remember one simple truth: A.Ron was right.
Cecily and A.Ron are not happy with Banshee right now, and episode 407, “Truths Other Than The Ones You Tell Yourself” is a showcase for why. Proctor now is involved in federal corruption that almost literally goes all the way to the top. Hood can be snuck up on by a disgraced plastic surgeon with a wrench. Law enforcement, including the FBI, can’t track one of their agent’s cell phones. Cruz gets murdered in the first seconds of the episode and NOT by Carrie. Everyone is acting their asses off and the show still looks great, but it has totally lost it’s mind. Check back with us next week when we finally get the epic Proctor versus The Rest show down we’ve been wanting. Please?
In episode 406 of Cinemax’s Banshee, “Only One Way a Dogfight Ends”, Satan worshipers get pyrotechnic, the Neo-nazis flex on the Amish gangster, Veronica gets locked up in a human torture/sacrifice chamber, and… A.Ron and Cecily wonder when we’re going to start caring. While individual parts of the show are still good, specifically the action and Job, we worry the heart of the show that elevated it above your typical brainless action-adventure show has simply been ripped out by a fakey Lucifer with four lame “horns”. We make the best of it and then consider some community feedback, but ultimately we’re crossing our fingers that Banshee pulls out all the stops and makes this last season worth in in the final two episodes.
Cecily and A.Ron discuss episode 405 of Cinemax’s “Banshee”, entitled, “A Little Late to Grow a Pair”. While there is no denying the inherent silliness of the Satanist main plot, everything else in the episode is gold. Job transforming back into JOB!, Burton taking a chainsaw to Banshee’s beleagured Amish community, Hood having fun Batmaning Brock a time or two, and some good times are had at the sleepy little country communities one and only BDSM/Satanist hangout. Sure, why not!
In this week’s episode of Cinemax’s Banshee, “Innocent Might Be a Bit of a Stretch”, we receive clues as to the serial killer’s identity and agenda, Special Agent Dushku intrigues both Proctor and Hood alike, Job keeps his shiz together long enough for Carrie to be a total badass, while Bad Bowtie Burton commits his most heinous act to date. All this and feedback too coming your way!
We feel like “Banshee” is well and truly back this week with some nicely executed action set pieces including a pulse pounding foot chase as well as a double/triple cross snipe-fest, they payoff of which was good enough that we’ll both forgive a little Fat Au Ex Machina. Episode 403, “Job, featured bombshell reunions, revelations, and some hot former-neo-nazi sex, and we get around to discussing it all.
