There’s so much to talk about in today’s episode! Over the holidays we both dodged a pre-order bullet by waiting on Cyberpunk 2077 so we decided to talk about the pre-order mentality. Then we move on to TV and talk about more of The Good Lord Bird, Jim’s experience re-watching ALL of Seinfeld – especially the disappointing way the finale was aired, A.Ron’s thoughts on season 1 of The Sopranos and Ted Lasso, then finish up with our teleparty of Free Fire.
Our first lunch of 2021 starts off with a discussion of what we got up to during our time off and some of the gifts we got for Christmas. Then I go all in on a new NAS, we talk about watch parties, A.Ron eviscerates Chrysler with a scathing rant, we talk fantasy books and our reading habits, and more. And during the whole lunch, we manage to only talk a little about what went down in our Capitol two days ago.
What would Christmas be without a heartfelt message of cheer and togetherness? Elf starts out on a sad and lonely note, but by the end our spirits are lifted. Hopefully we accomplished the same this Christmas season with our podcasts. Thank you to everyone who has joined us for these past few weeks of celebration. Enjoy the final podcast of the season, and we’ll see you next year!
Thanks for joining us for the Christmas 2020 season. We’re signing off with an extra-large helping of LWJ&A, but you’ll still have our super secret christmas movie podcast and video review coming up on the 23rd. Enjoy! We’ll see you in the new year.
This month’s Patron edition of “Off the Clock” isn’t as much about the TV and movies we’ve been watching as it is about what we’ve been reading and watching on YouTube.
A.Ron’s discussion of Mank tells the story of the writing of Citizen Kane. Jim follows up with another Blake Crouch novel, Dark Matter. Then A.Ron talks about his survivalist YouTube obsession, Joe Robinet. And we close it out with a discussion of the shows we wanted to talk more about this year and those we’re glad we didn’t bother with.
The second movie in our Christmas 2020 lineup isn’t traditionally considered a Christmas movie but once you hear our arguments for why it most certainly is, we think you’ll agree. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on the creation of modern buddy cop tropes, the bizarre music choices, (can a saxophone ever be used non-sexually) and party nog at your daughter’s funeral.
Christmas Lunchtime! The second of our Christmas lunches is upon us. Come join us as we discuss A.Ron’s latest holiday, how our Secret Santa exchange is shaping up, and field a bunch of questions from the fans.
Welcome to the first Christmas movie of the 2020 holiday season, The Holiday! It features some major starpower, the likes of Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black. Yes, it’s a romantic comedy but you knew we had to do one eventually. There are just SO MANY rom-com Christmas movies out there and we can’t cover JUST the badass classics like Die Hard and Rocky IV! And if there was ever a season for variety, this is the one. COVID has been hard on all of us, so join us for this mostly-wholesome, very sappy, but also highly-enjoyable holiday treat.
Christmas Lunchtime! This is it. This lunch is the kick-off event for the 2020 Holiday celebration here at Bald Move. We took Thanksgiving off so this is a super-sized lunch spanning both holidays. Join us as we imbibe our typical three drinks and spread the Christmas cheer.
This week’s Off the Clock covers A.Ron’s rewatch of Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and Blake Crouch’s sci-fi book “Recursion.”
