Cecily and A.Ron discuss the sixth (and heaviest episode so far) of The New Pope. All allegiances are tested and some very difficult choices are made. *sigh*
Jim has fallen into a coma, so Cecily and A.Ron listen to him breath for 45ish minutes. While they listen for a sigh, they discuss well-read women, the growing attraction between members of the Vatican and sin, the growing distance between those we thought we loved, and idolatry.
Jim, Cecily, and A.Ron discuss episode 4 of The New Pope. John Paul III considers what the real world is as he steps closer to sin, Voiello attempts to treat with the nuns ever-growing demands, Lenny visits someone desperately in need, and Marilyn Manson doesn’t know who ANYONE is.
Jim, A.Ron, and Cecily discuss a very difficult episode of The New Pope. They discuss confronting your parents/demons (sometimes one and the same), accepting help from your peers, being a socialite, and Christian charity.
Jim, Cecily, and A.Ron attempt to discuss all of the symbolism of the second episode of The New Pope. They grapple with depression, sexuality, love, grief, and the famous middle way.
Four years after The Young Pope, Jim, A.Ron and Cecily are back to cover the follow-up, The New Pope, which looks just as gloriously insane. Join us on Wednesday each week for a no-pope-barred romp through HBO’s continuing series.
A.Ron, Cecily, and Jim meditate on the ending of HBO’s The Young Pope. What to make of Lenny? How do we feel about the attempted humanization of a pedophile priest? Are we good, or are we bad? The only thing we’re sure of? We’re breathing the same air.
A.Ron, Jim, and Cecily have a round table discussion of the latest two episodes of HBO’s The Young Pope. Shocking events happen, some involving people, some involving giant marsupials. But they are shocking. Plus, people try to fool the Pope, but he ain’t having it, is killing someone as a result of fervent prayer a miracle or black magic, Voiello and Sister Mary maybe in need of a private confessional, and of course, as always, just what the heckfire is this show actually about, anyway?
When we began this podcast, we expected to have a lot of fun laughing at the crazy outfits and Jude Law strutting around chewing scenery left and right. And we were right about that, that is pretty funny and a delight to look at. But these last few episodes have revealed a show with much more substance than we were initially led to believe with the premise. What sort of revolution is the Young Pope wanting to lead? Can the Pope continue to cow heretics and Prime Ministers alike with threats of no win situations and divine retribution? Is Jude Law’s butt proof of the existence of God?
Jim, A.Ron and Cecily are back with another papal powerhouse podcast, talking about the very strange and yet strangely entertaining fourth episode of HBO’s The Young Pope. The Pope deals with the three stages of life; conception, birth, and death, in a decidely Young Popeish kind of way; intense prayer, disdain, and screaming at nuns. Sorry about the tardiness of our coverage this week, our plan going forward is to cover both Sunday and Monday episodes in a single Bald Move TV podcast on Tuesday. See you then!
