We take a bit of a detour this week to spend some time with Joel’s acquaintance, Bill. He’s a prepper… excuse me, a “survivalist”, whose subterranean bunker is buried only slightly deeper than his heart. Join us for the instant take to hear our first impressions of The Last of Us – S01E03 – Long Long Time.
Lunchtime! This episode is a smorgasbord. First we have a serving of team pride from A.Ron who has gone to the Bengals side. Then we have a side dish of news on Rick and Morty. And a main course of hotels made of ice, a fatal “would you rather” question, and a little bit of Empire Business.
Jim and A.Ron have harvested organic, free-range fungal feedback for you to consume. Are the trailers telling too much? Is Ellie the only immune human? Is someone out there eating raw flour? What is the rest of the world up to? On top of the questions we have a documentary recommendation and an article for you to check out.
Don the disco suit you keep in the back of your closet because we’re covering Gene Siskel’s favorite movie. Saturday Night Fever starts as a feature length commercial for disco music and then goes to dark places you wouldn’t expect. Does the movie hold up to modern sensibilities? What are we supposed to take away from this story? Jim and A.Ron discuss these questions and more in this episode of Bald Move Prestige.
Only two episodes in and the show is capturing the soul of the game in the action, the frightening zombies, and the tense emotional moments that build the characters. Joel, Ellie, and Tess pick their way through Boston, not a creme doughnut in sight, and face off against some savage clickers. Sacrifices must be made in order to survive.
“Infected” was Neil Druckmann’s television directorial debut and it was an adventure. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey give off strong Mando and Grogu vibes amidst the chaos. Watch out for the tendrils as we dissect the latest episode of The Last of Us.
Lunchtime! Looking to add a fun chat to your lunch break? A.Ron’s house may or may not be haunted by Billy Joel’s harmonica. Hear the latest news on Jim’s modeling woes, A.Ron’s expansion of his workshop, and random chat covering the film industry. Find out which Star Trek souvenirs your hosts would love to have. Finally, Jim and A.Ron open the last of the Christmas presents.
Put down that oatmeal raisin cookie and tune in for feedback on the first episode of the sure-to-be-a-hit The Last of Us adaptation. What do you think of the sprouts-mouth? Does the excitement of the video game shine through in the show? Want to know more about fungal infections from a nurse? We have you covered.
Beware of elderly ladies bearing raisin oatmeal cookies. HBO has another instant hit on their hands with their adaptation of the massively popular video game, The Last of Us. Pedro Pascal proves again that he’s one of the best actors on the planet. Whether you’ve played the game or not, this zombie survival story is sure to be an entertaining and harrowing time.
Did you see that first episode? Well so did we and we’re here to give our initial reactions to it. Join us for a spoiler-free conversation about how we thought the beginning of The Last of Us held up as a TV adaptation. We’ll be back on Tuesday with a breakdown of the episode and a more well-considered discussion.
