Jim and A.Ron offer their takes on Netflix’s Stranger Things episode, “The Vanishing of Will Byers”. We’re undertaking a rewatch and podcast for every episode of season one to get pumped up for season two, which premiers on October 27, 2017! We’ll be doing a season two preview this Friday, October 20th. Got feedback? Send it in using the contacts below! We’ll be covering the entirety of season two the weekend beginning Oct 27th! Come marathon Stranger Things with us!
Cecily and A.Ron discuss the controversial “Mid-Western Assassin” episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult. We discuss gun violence, self-censoring same in reaction to increasingly common current events, and what, if any, lessons this episode is capable of teaching. Plus, A.Ron explains the difference between a twist, and a “twist”, and prays to Twisty for deliverance from evil clowns.
Jim and A.Ron re-watched Game of Thrones episode “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, break it’s neck, and throw it off a parapet. Just kidding, but we do bite into it like Jaqen into an apple. We discuss tortured metaphors, Brienne’s rushing into commitments, Stannis’ reluctance to face The Truth, and Arya’s fun and exciting new friends at Harrenhal. All this and a bunch of interesting feedback, and a lore and history packed SpoiLore section!
Jim and A.Ron talk about their thoughts and feelings for the last three episodes of Rick and Morty, and try to place the third season in overall R&M perspective, before going long on their thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery.
A.Ron and Cecily talk about some fine television they have consumed in the past week or so, including Netflix’s Top of the Lake (00:00:20), starring Elizabeth Moss and Gwendoline Christy, Netflix’s hilarious and tragic Bojack Horseman (00:22:31), and also Netflix’s Gerald’s Game (00:34:10), adapted from a Stephen King story of the same name.
A.Ron and Cecily have seen the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story, “Holes”, and aren’t sure if they’re talking about trypophobia or the plot. Good gravy we’re confused about when and how Meadow died exactly, when Ivy and Alley’s relationship dove into the crapper, and how steam rooms work in the real world. Also; we explain gaslighting in a one act play. Also, also; feedback! See you next week!
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 re-watch episode 204 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Garden of Bones”, and mine a rich vein of almost forgotten Peak Tyrion. We also got gummed up with a clumsy arrival of Daenerys at the great city of Qarth, and Jim can’t take Lancel seriously, and we’re both really bummed out about the arrival of this season’s re-cast “Mountain”, but the arrival of the fantastic Papa Lannister single-handedly makes up for all of it. Another great season 2 episode, is what we’re saying, and we have some terrific feedback to go along with it.
Cecily and A.Ron take in the sights and sounds of American Horror Story: Cult’s episode 704, “11/9”, where we begin to see Kai laying the foundation of his crazy empire/cult. A.Ron is deeply saddened to find out that, yeah, Ivy is probably in on this from the ground floor; Cecily is still in denial. We also talk about Boris Carolla, gym jerking etiquette, the swift conversion of members of Kai’s cult, and lots and lots of feedback. See you next week!
Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”. There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell. But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb. All this discussion, plus a healthy heaping of feedback ahead!
