Cecily and A.Ron take in the latest episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult, “Winter of Our Discontent”, where Winter starts to question some of Kai’s leadership and strategy. Or does she? Who knows, perhaps all will be revealed / retconned in a flashback. We also discuss the hilarious/glorious sex ritual Kai comes with, Vincent’s relationship with his siblings, Ally slapping a “NO FEAR” sticker to the back of her Prius, and A.Ron prays to Twisty to deliver us from evil on this upcoming Halloween. Speaking of which, next episode comes on on Halloween!! See you then…
AMC’s The Walking Dead entered it’s mid-season hiatus last night with the episode, “Hearts Still Beating”, which had Jim and A.Ron asking if their hearts were still stirred by the drama on screen. Your mileage may vary, but we found it doing just enough to make up for the missteps this season, and promising just enough up tempo pacing that we’re, knock on wood, excited for it’s return in February? That maybe losing more than a 1/3rd of it’s audience in a season will scare the creative and studio types enough to stop dicking around and get serious about bringing this show to some sort of satisfying conclusion. In addition, we talk about mysterious boot person, the reunion of one of television’s most potent bromances, express concern for Maggie’s ripped uterus, and show mock concern about the show’s latest shocking death.
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.
We discuss Mad Men behaving badly, Sepinwall’s Greater Billy Pilgrim Theory of 7B, the awesome, and yet sad, triumph of Ken, the magnificent bastard that is Stan Rizzo, check in with a bunch of feedback from our army of correspondents, and much, much more. Enjoy!
Starts approximately at 2pm EST!
Cecily and A.Ron are really bummed out about how they’re choosing to close an otherwise promising True Blood season. Tara dies to make way for a Lettie Mae redemption arc? Jessica hitches her wagon to the big dumb Hoyt horse, or maybe she doesn’t. Bill mumbles a mess about how his memories of love are…
