Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of some weird ass love stories. In a show full of brilliant astronauts and hardcore investors, it’s no wonder that tensions run high. We talk about Harambe, yes the gorilla (RIP) and the office politics that are making their way into space. Many of the characters in this show can be described as a piece of work, but Karen takes the cake.
The satire is hitting close to home. You may feel bad about yourself, but so long as you don’t sleep with Butcher, there is hope for you yet. We’re sensing some red herrings in the mix, who is telling the truth? And place your bets, who will be a smoky corpse or chunky human salsa by the end of the episode?
Listener beware, there be SPOILERS ahead.
It’s a main course of current TV with a dash of novels, both visual and traditional, thrown in for flavor.
Jim and A.Ron join The Lorehounds, David and John, to introduce their brand new show, The Second Age. What is The Second Age? The Second Age Podcast takes a closer look at the background of both the fantasy world of Middle-earth and the real world of JRR Tolkien. Join us to get a deeper appreciation of the lore behind Amazon’s upcoming series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Check out the episode for more details!
Lunchtime! Today’s burning questions: which two actors would make the worst looking baby? And who has the better “hand extended” power, Eleven or Chris Pratt in Jurassic World? One can break spines and the other can calm a velociraptor. But then again, only one has been in interesting projects this year. Perhaps that is the true power. Hang out with us as we chat yard remodeling, favorite streaming platforms, and the popularity of Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza.
Take a peek into our alternative past, present, and future in the return of For All Mankind. The season is bringing new relationships and piling on the family drama. Are we going to get another land invasion of Mars? How many more wars do we need to fight?! Witness the first wedding in space…and it’s just as cringey as some weddings down here on earth, but more dangerous. But the economy is soaring, so I would like to live in this reality please.
We fell for the cast reunion ploy. It drew us in, it’s not our fault we watched this Tyran-atrocious dinosaur movie. The twinkle in Sam Neill’s eye was squashed by the crush of too many species of dinosaurs. And Chris Pratt is now like that cool guy from high school, he already peaked and now he’s just tired. Listen to A.Ron’s impression of Jeff Goldblum when he’s flirting with a woman, there’s nothing like it. Make sure you’re in the club for our next first run movie: Thor: Love and Thunder.
Homelander is…just the worst. Everyone seems to have some sort of plan, but not telling other people the plan…maybe that’s why it’ll take a whole five years to execute? Butcher is crunching V24 and gearing up for a fight with an opponent that may not be as super as expected. And if you want Jim and A.Ron to believe a character is dead, you better show the corpse. The tools are present to cripple and de-power Homelander, but is it possible?
Thanks for sending in your feedback! Now that we have the benefit of looking back on the complete series of We Own This City, we have the advantage of looking at this multi-layer problem as a whole. This show offers us viewers a chance to engage with and develop compassion for people we may not share experience with. That is prestige television at its best. And please enjoy the American accent lesson from an informed listener.
The show that took home multiple Baldies is back with an exciting looking season. In this scifi realism, we wonder how the show will tackle how space is viewed in an age of expansion, public and private space exploration, and heroism from different perspectives. Which flaps of the butterfly wings are going to influence life in this space age? Find out with us Friday, June 10th at 3AM EST when the pilot and our first episode drop.
