Bald Move Prestige - The VVitch (2015)

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!

LWJ&A – Episode 338 – SCREWS. SCREWS.

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.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell – Feedback

The magnetic containment unit experienced core meltdown, and the feedback is smoking. With the madness of this season it’s no surprise your feedback covers the gamut from bad borg face effects to the nonsensical character arc closures. What do we want in season three? A full cast reunion sharing a scene together. We don’t want Patrick Stewart to catch covid, but when else are we going to have the chance to see this?
Hailing frequencies are going dark. We’re not planning Picard Season 3 episode coverage. But if you want to hear us talk about it, consider supporting us to gain access to our premium Off the Clock episodes.

We Own This City - S01E03 – Part Three

This show makes us mad, in a good way. We’re getting a wider scope of the issues ingrained in the BPD and the bad police policy implemented decades ago that just kept getting worse over the years. Follow us on our episode breakdown by topic as we dissect the multiple characters, nuances, and layers of this show. One of our deep dives focuses on Hersl and the perverse incentives in this system.

LWJ&A – Episode 337 – $35 For a Ton of Crushed Gravel

Lunchtime! Property Brothers? What about Property Podcasters? A.Ron and Jim talk about the next steps in home renovation and their beef with HOAs. Speaking of HOAs, A.Ron and Jim are creating board games, and my favorite is sneaking around the HOA. It’s the closest I’ll get to owning a house. Would you attend Jurassic Park all expenses paid with a 10% chance of death? Surprisingly, not a tough question for these guys to answer. Tune in for officially unofficial life advice and more on this week’s lunch!

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell

Set phasers to mildly entertained. There were a few good moments sprinkled amongst the madness. Q and Picard’s relationship comes to a somewhat satisfying end with Picard now unshackled from his past decisions. The road getting here was rough, but was it worth the journey? And A.Ron has been cured of Jurati syndrome. Thank you for all the sympathy cards.
Picard Season 3 episode by episode coverage is TBD. Who’s looking forward to the reunion next season?
Integrity of the magnetic containment unit is deteriorating. Power crystals might last for one final episode. Send in your feedback to picard@baldmove.com.

Game of Thrones - House of the Dragon Preview 5

We’ve got hopes as high as the budget. HOTD caps their budget at a humble $20 million per episode. Meanwhile, Bezos goes full tilt funneling $500 million into The Rings of Power. For comparison, Peter Jackson made the LOTR trilogy with an average of $94 million per movie, modest by today’s high fantasy standards. Fans of fictitious languages, HOTD will have something to tickle your articulators. Will TROP and HOTD be friends, or fight on the streaming playground? Who knows, maybe they’ll both be bad and we can commiserate on Reddit.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E09 – Hide and Seek – Feedback

“Don’t make me defend this show.” A.Ron five times during this episode.
We’re glad to see that elements of this show speak to some people. But when it’s not speaking to us, it’s confusing us. Don’t miss Picard: The Lost Episode, a dramatic reading from A.Ron of a fan spec script that explains this madness. Before you get too giddy about the next Star Trek shows, it’s the same creative team from Picard behind the other shows.
