Bald Move TV – The Deuce – S03E02 – Morta di Fame

The Deuce is under a lot of pressure in “Morta di Fame”, as disease, drugs, greedy gangsters and corrupt politicians all angle to take a bite out of its inhabitants. It’s hard to see how established players like Rudy, Vincent, and Paul are going to make it out okay, but there is a glimmer of hope that Frankie just might be able to survive by being to small time to worry about. Meanwhile on the West coast Lori is waking up to the fact that she’s traded a pimp named Cici for one named Kiki. Grim proceedings all around, lightened only by Bobby’s hair piece and Frankie’s fledgling paper bag porn empire. Plus, we get educated on all things Greenwich in the feedback section!

Bald Move TV – The Deuce – S03E01 – The Camera Loves You

HBO’s The Deuce is back! We rejoin our mixed crew of hustlers on the Eve of 1985. The strip itself seems a bit less bright, and a good deal more dangerous, even as powerful big-money interests have high-class aspirations for the neighborhood. This premiere is a marvel of efficient storytelling and character re-introductions, introducing various threats to the community; wolfpacks, AIDS, home video recording, that will be impacting the lives and livelihoods of The Deuce denizens for the rest of the series.

Pickle Me This – S03E01 – The Rickshank Rickdemption (with Jonah Ray)

Our season three coverage of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty starts of with a bang as we break down “The Rickshank Rickdemption”. This episode is truly a marvel of both comedy and plotting; Rick manages to escape a high security prison, cripple his rival Ricks in the Citadel while destroying the Galactic Federation, and for dessert, oust Jerry from his own family as part of a 100 year plot to bring back Schezuan sauce to McDonalds. To do justice to it, we’ve brought in MST3K’s own Jonah Ray to share his own connection to R&M, thoughts on “The Rickshank Rickdemption”, as well as a cautionary tale about scooter rentals. You might also be interested in his new project, “You Can’t Call Me Al”, a Weird Al cover album. Check it out, it’s a jam!
