Lunchtime! We covered A LOT today. Ever wonder the difference between prestige and pulp? Hear our officially unofficial answer. What are your favorite foods, board games, and opinions on your local strip club? Hear a passionate stance on Taco Bell and an idea for a Penalty Box for bad episodes of good shows. And I think we should have a competition to see who can come up with the best coat of arms for Bald Move. Real talk, tell the people you care about that you love them. Life is fleeting, let’s make the most of it. And no Lunch next week because we’re covering Stranger Things!
This many setup episodes is unusual for Better Call Saul, and it has a lot of people tapping their foot and looking at their watches. But there’s more to this one than just setup. We get a lot of mileage out of a Kim cold-open and Jimmy has never been more Saul than he is here. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on Axe and Grind.
Conspiracy theorists rejoice, we’re covering your favorite movie. Everyone else, we know it’s in your top ten, don’t deny it. It’s got everything: clues, conspiracy, and the most toned-down Nic Cage performance on record. With the breakneck speed plot points you don’t have time to ask, “Does this actually make sense?” It’s good fun for all ages, which you don’t see a lot of anymore, so props to this movie. If you’re not enjoying it, you’re thinking too hard. Stop it!
What are you waiting for? Listen in on our discussion on America’s National Treasure, Nic Cage, in the movie National Treasure.
With only two episodes left to go, we are soon approaching the end of We Own This City. We hear the title of the show said in this episode and it’s as infuriating as it should be. The show asks the question, when the bully cops go too far even by the other bully cops standards, why do those people who could do something, still do nothing? When this corruption and violence is the input of this horrid policing, then this unrest is the logical output.

Here’s what’s happening at Bald Move this week.
VVe are rounding out our Robert Eggers coverage vvith this commissioned episode covering The VVitch. Is this puritanical family suffering from shared hallucination, or real curse? Under the evil imagery, is Eggers telling us a dark fairytale or allegory for a repressive environment? Maybe it’s both and either vvay, this movie is burned into our minds. This movie excels at vvorking its vvay into your subconscious and making you feel absolutely uncomfortable. Thank you Joey for commissioning this podcast!
Anthony watches through his fingers as a pussy Jorah gets the knife. Steve revels in the Jon and Dany build up. Then Anthony interviews Jason from Podcastica about Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon.
Lunchtime! Happy Friday the 13th! On this Freaky Friday, Jim and A.Ron discuss what they would do if they woke up in each other’s body. Jim is going to eat tide pods, what a friend. Find out the best place to sit when watching a 3D animated movie from. According to Jim, the best place to get brunch waffles is Gabby’s Cafe in Cincinnati. And someone finally asks the question I’ve been wondering for a month, what kind of android is Jim? Turns out he’s ::ERROR::DATA NOT FOUND::, so I’m terrified.
Mathematician Pádraig MacCarron has charted the character relationships in A Song of Ice and Fire. Anthony does his best to keep up. Also, Jon gets a fancy sword. Pádraig also helps to theorize the true identity of Mormont’s raven.
Another setup episode has us tapping our foot like a prostitute-loving lawyer on cocaine wondering when we’ll get to the good stuff. And it’s not that the episode isn’t good, it’s just that anticipation of Howard’s downfall is killing us. But while the Kim and Jimmy plot taketh away, the Lalo plot finally arrives to giveth, with a forehead-slappingly obvious continuation that somehow managed to be a complete surprise. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts.
