This time on “Off the Clock” we discuss the premiere of Hamilton on Disney+, as well as the movie and first season of What We Do in the Shadows on FX, and Naughty Dog’s latest entry in The Last of Us series.
We’re still trying to figure out Michonne’s hostile posture toward the new group of survivors in S09E07 of The Walking Dead.
A big thank you to Ann Merin for commissioning this podcast on Chaos on the Bridge, William Shatner’s 2014 documentary that peeks behind the scenes of the first few years of Star Trek: The Next Generation with cast interviews describing tumultuous power dynamics both in and out of the writers room. Frankly, it’s a must-see movie for fans of TNG and now we’ve finally seen it. Give the podcast a listen to find out what we thought.
Jim is mixing up Bloody Marys for a series of summer lunches which eventually becomes “On the Rocks” while we debate this year’s Emmy nominations.
Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of Christopher Nolan’s dreamscape heist film, Inception. We covered it immediately after its initial release and 10 years later we’re back to do it all over again. I assume we’ll hit level three in about 90 more years and come back from limbo to cover it one final time, but until then check out our 2nd podcast review of this film.
Al & Joe committed one of the all-time biggest “Bald Move Boners” by watching and reviewing, not just the wrong episode of The Walking Dead but the wrong episode of the wrong show entirely!

We seem to be on a Vietnam kick with a couple of our movie choices lately. Oliver Stone’s 1989 adaptation of Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic’s autobiography of the same name, recounting his journey from a combat-thirsty young man to a disabled anti-war activist, is worthy of the two academy awards it won. Join us for a discussion about the film, this American folly, and its lingering effects on our society today.
What Comes After might be the best episode of the season thus far but we still have some big questions. Join us as we ponder them, as well as a special announcement at the end of the episode. A big thank you to Mysteriana for creating the Watching Dead theme music. Find all of their…
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Apollo 13. It was a movie A.Ron and I loved back then and we were pleasantly surprised to see how well it held up. Join us for a discussion of the film, the real Apollo missions, the future of space exploration, and beyond.
