Today we’re here to talk about the 2004 SyFy reimagined Battlestar Galactica. Jim loves this series, I have problems with it. Still, we talk for nearly two hours and find what we think will be a lot of common ground with any fan of the show. Despite my misgivings I do recognize it’s quality and importance to Sci-Fi in general. So say we both. Special thanks to our intrepid community of commissioners who made this podcast possible. To Jay “Nothing-has-corners-for-some-reason” Russo, Jeff, Anubus21, ClevelandPunk, Manoj, Matt from Boston, Devin from Maine, Ben from Yronwood, Isd5u, sam.n, leaplizard, elstenger, shenson90, jeffrey.w, enquiries, Shayne Bowman, nikhonesty, thank you for your generous support!
Merry Christmas, everybody! The last day of our Culkin Keatmas is upon us, and with it, our final gift to you. Jim and I break down the Star Wars Holiday Special and take it for all it’s worth. Wookiee porn, deeply unfunny instructional videos, ill-fitting helmets, and hours of uncaptioned Wookiee dialog are considered and de-coded but we’re still left with the big question… Why? Since all involved have disowned the project we may never know. But whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Life Day or any other tradition that aims to turn the coldest, darkest part of the year into something more, you are in our thoughts, and you have our gratitude for all the love and support you’ve shown us this past year. We’ll see you in 2018!
Jim and A.Ron discuss their thoughts on an incredible season one of HBO’s The Deuce, and get into a discussion about politics and society along the way, before A.Ron makes an earnest appeal to check out Netflix’s Lady Dynamite, the funniest, sharpest comedy about depression and mental illness you’ll likely ever see.
Jim and A.Ron talk about their thoughts and feelings for the last three episodes of Rick and Morty, and try to place the third season in overall R&M perspective, before going long on their thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery.
A.Ron and Cecily talk about some fine television they have consumed in the past week or so, including Netflix’s Top of the Lake (00:00:20), starring Elizabeth Moss and Gwendoline Christy, Netflix’s hilarious and tragic Bojack Horseman (00:22:31), and also Netflix’s Gerald’s Game (00:34:10), adapted from a Stephen King story of the same name.
Jim and A.Ron are here to chew bubble gum and talk about television, and we’re all out of meatballs. We discuss the last three episodes of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty (“The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy”, “Rest and Ricklaxation”, “The Ricklantis Mixup”) starting at timecode 00:00:00, and wrapping up with a conversation about David Simon and George Pelecanos’ new HBO series about the 1970’s pornography scene, The Deuce that begins at 00:00:00. Enjoy!
Jim, A.Ron and Cecily form a super team to discuss a variety of current TV shows. First up, we tackle episodes 303 and 304 of Rick and Morty (00:00:40), then move on to Ozark (00:27:36), Marvel’s Defenders (00:39:18), and the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) (00:53:36) on Netflix.
A.Ron and Jim talk about why you should be watching Rick and Morty on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, before talking about our backgrounds with the show and our opinions of how things are going through the first two episodes, “The Rickshank Rickdemption”, and “Rickmancing the Stone”.
Shayne Bowman, proprietor of the Heisenberg Chronicles as well as all around friend of the show, joins me to discuss Twin Peaks classic, before I take my plunge into Twin Peaks: The Return. We talk about our history with the show, what it was like to watch “back in the day”, Shayne’s longtime fascination with David Lynch, what works, and what doesn’t, and if it even matters when you’re watching something as off the map as Twin Peaks. If you liked this, stay tuned, there will be more once I get caught up to The Return!
Long time fans of Bald Move knows we don’t care much for most rewards shows, and thus don’t comment a lot on them. But sometimes, the best show on TV gets royally shafted on an award show that purports to recognize outstanding work in the medium, and we just got to take to the mics and talk about it. You might not like The Leftovers, but it’s so galling that it doesn’t even get a nomination for any major category, while stale farts like House of Cards gets lavished with actor, actress, series, supporting actor nominations… well, you can listen to us lose our ish about it for about an hour. And we get around to covering the other major nominations too.
