Cecily stops by the studio to chat with A.Ron about HBO’s Girls two episodes into the final season (00:03:12), and then both sing praises about the resurgence of FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s twelfth season (00:21:51). Also, shhh… don’t tell anyone, but we’re watching SyFy’s The Expanse! (00:38:06)
This week we reeled in a couple of live ones, including a one star review and the most patient, fair-minded, three star iTunes reviewer we’ve ever seen on God’s green earth. We also discuss some next-level ideas for similar projects, and Jim revels in his idea for a new recurring feature; a prediction segment where he just literally describes what happens on the “Next Week On” sneak peak.
Jim, Jason and A.Ron break down another mind altering episode of FX’s Legion. In “Chapter 3”, we delve more into David’s past and childhood, explore the astral plane to check in on his sister, and get more hints and clues as to the nature and powers of the yellow-eyed demon that haunts David’s dreams.
Jim and A.Ron slog through a mess of a Star Trek: The Next Generation inspired episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, as Rick negotiates a complicated treaty with the Romulan sub-commander of a garbage world. There’s some good stuff too; some emotional punch with Daryl and Carol, some nuanced Morgalizing from Morgan, and a “have to see it to believe it” Mad Max / Lord of the Rings inspired zombie pit fight sequence. Maybe that’s how TWD is going to roll going forward, pilfering from better sci-fi/fantasty tales? If so, I’m really looking forward to Battle of the Blackwater, or ooh, maybe the Red Weddding episodes!
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
Come watch the episode with us. If it’s bad, we’ll make fun of it. If it’s good… well, we’ll still make fun of it, just a little less seriously.
Kelly & Tom welcome back guest Allison Mick for their recap of The Crown S1E7. They patronize 1-800-AMERICA, clash in the eternal pugs v. Corgis matchup, say lots of things like they’re from Boston, wish Winston Churchill was dead (on the show), rate Pringles mustaches, try to make raven-poking seem family friendly, compare Heath Ledger…
This week finds us reeling in some perhaps genuine(?) fish, a one star iTunes review, as we discuss our end game plans and the difficulty of making stuff up with so little to go on.
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.
Jim and A.Ron are back to further chronicle the legendary journeys of one Rick Grimes and his merry band of post apocalyptic crazies. This week, we consider “A Rock in the Road”, which we found to be an amazing episode in terms of epic clothes lines, and considerably less so when judging by its titular morality tale. Speaking of morality, there is some rampant Morgalizing in this episode. But we get just the right amount of Negan. All this plus explosions and fan feedback!
