Mid-Season 6 Wrap Up

From the promising start, The Walking Dead tripped and fell it’s way towards a disappointing first half of season six. WTF is the problem? Can they recover? Should we care any more? All these questions and more are pondered by Jim and A.Ron with our fellow fans. Regardless of where we’re at now, we WILL be back for the back half of season six, rain or shine, and hopefully you’ll be there with us.

413 – Curtain Call

Well, it’s the season finale of American Horror Story: Freak Show, episode 413, “Curtain Call”, and it’s a hot mess. What started off with so much Twisted promise devolved into a Dandy just never quite got there and too little, too late Chester. In this podcast, we talk our overall thoughts on the season, on the happy Freaks ending, and make predictions for next year. All this, plus a Ima Wiggles sized portion of feedback, and much more.

Meth? Or Method Acting?

Kelly & Tom continue their very exciting Empire Exhibition with an assist from comedian Kevin O’Shea. They dive deep into the Lake of Shining Waters with Anne of Green Gables, only coming up for the occasional swig of raspberry cordial and a reminiscence about childhood community theater. The film passes the Bechdick test with flying colors…

There’s Knees Afoot

For their recap of both the 1917 and 1995 versions of A Little Princess, Kelly and Tom are joined by the delightful Allison Mick.
