Forrest Gump is an artifact of a more innocent age; a time before Tom Hanks learned to make fire. Before Robin Wright made binge-watching a lifestyle.

This week we talk about the first 2 episodes of Ted Lasso’s latest season, the first Foundation novel and a bit about our hopes / expectations for the Apple TV+ series, Schmigadoon!, The Pacific, Zola, and Shadow and Bone.

Oh boy, the community is divided over this episode. Turns out, so is our podcast. Join us for a discussion of S05E07 “Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion” which is either a perfect example of why the haters don’t deserve anymore Rick and Morty or a perfect example of why the latest season is complete crap, depending on which type of toxic fan you are.

Well, if that’s what you’re expecting of the movie you’re going to be disappointed. It’s definitely more of an art film than an action movie. Check out the podcast to hear our non-spoiler review and trailer talk and then, if you’re a club member or patron, stick around for the full spoiler review.
It has been another few months since A.Ron and I last dipped our toe into the HBO news stream and Anthony is between seasons of Electric Bookaloo.

This is in the running for the worst podcast Bald Move has ever released. One of us was feeling what this movie was doing. The other, not so much.
