Watching Dead – 805 – The Big Scary U

On this episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “The Big Scary U”, Gabriel hears Negan’s confession, Rick and possibly a live wildcat standing in for Daryl hit a rough patch while debating the meaning of “All Out War”, while the Council of Idiots decides what to do in the absence of their Dear Leader. And feedback.  And a bit of spoiler section!  Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Americans, and we’ll see you and the rest of the world next week!

Mr. Robot – 306 – eps3.5_kill-pr0cess.inc

Jim and A.Ron are delighted with another suspenseful, well crafted episode of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, “eps3.5_kill-process.inc”.  Great dialog, great, inventive action, solid acting and exceptional editing come together in one very satisfying package.  We’re mid-season and these episodes feel like season finales!  What will be coming in the weeks ahead?!  Join us again next week to find out!

American Horror Story Podcast – 711 – Great Again

Did Murphy pull it off with the final episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult?  Did he in fact, make AHS “Great Again?”  Ehhh…  But A.Ron and Cecily feel that he made a few decent points about the state of modern America, at least one cautionary tale, but mostly this episode is an Inception style mess of flashbacks and flashforwards and who knows how deep into this dream we’re all in, but I’m pretty sure if we don’t get out soon we’ll all be stuck in limbo.  We try to restore sanity to the time line before considering a heaping helping of last minute feedback from our fellow fans.  Thanks for listening, it’s been a fun ride!

Watching Dead – 804 – Some Guy

A.Ron and Jim praise and rip this episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, “Some Guy”.  We dug a lot of the high concept medieval horror going on, and if nothing else, Ezekiel is a particularly interesting personality to mine pathos out of in this worn out zombie apocalypse we’re stuck in.  AND YET WE SMILE!  Because those car chases were right out of 80’s action / comedy, Carol was kicking Savior butt and taking names, until the tragic and outrageous death of a beloved character.  Then, feedback!  See you next week…

Game of Thrones – 210 – Valar Morghulis

Jim and A.Ron finish our retrospective re-watch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with the finale, “Valar Morghulis”.  It’s a typical GoT finale, in that it does a great job of setting up the next season as something you can barely wait to arrive.  Arya could start super assassin training!  The White Walkers are marching on the Night’s Watch!  Dany’s dragons can spit fire!  We talk about these topics and a ton of last minute feedback before signing off with some spoilers for season 2 as well as debating a few lingering season 7 stuff in the secluded SpoiLore section.  See you next year!

American Horror Story Podcast – 710 – Charles (Manson) in Charge

We’ve seen the latest from FX’s American Horror Story: Cult, “Charles (Manson) in Charge”, and it turns out that it’s all the women’s fault!  We should have known it the whole time!  A.Ron and Cecily try to figure out where Murphy is going as he crosses the double yellow and veers into oncoming traffic a final time before next week where maybe things will make sense!

Game of Thrones – 209 – Blackwater

Jim and A.Ron are nearing the finish line of their retro-re-watch of Game of Thrones season two.  This week is one of the all time great episodes, “Blackwater”.  There aren’t many heroes or villains in this one, just brave men fighting each other in desperate and bloody fashion.  Great action, but even greater character moments for Sansa, Cersei, Tyrion, and the Hound.  We have a lot of fun gushing over this episode,  then we bat clean up with feedback and our SpoiLore section at the very end of the podcast.
