The Game is a twisty-turney, paranoid ride through a Wonderland world. Trust no one. Ultimately the film is undoubtedly entertaining, and undoubtedly Fincher, but how do the pieces ultimately come together? Is this a game for the ages, or a contest to forget? Probably somewhere in the middle. Join use next week for Fight Club.…
Jim and A.Ron go back and re-watch episode 102 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, entitled “The Kingsroad”. Don’t fear spoilers if you’re a new listener, we do our best to contain any such advance knowledge to our SpoiLore section, which for you worldly people that have seen and read it all before, begins at the 00:58:20 mark!
Se7en is a psychological thriller that grabs from the get-go and doesn’t let go. It’s so affecting, so dark, so gruesome and extreme that the film may make you see things that aren’t even there. With excellent performances, a rock-solid script and masterful direction, Se7en is as engrossing a movie today as it was twenty years…
Kelly & Tom completely geek out over the S3 finale of Peaky Blinders–so much so they have to totally wing the final scene. They cross their fingers for the return of Horse Bitch in S4, declare Tatiana the winner of Peaky Blinders, note that all the guys got new hats, and marvel yet again at…
This week The Because Show has a very special guest — The Awesome Jessica! Susan and Amy thought they’d go easy on her, but Jessica dives right in with talk of a fart massage, the dangers of making new friends, and the pre-vacation pile-up. Listen to this week’s show and learn all about it!

Jim and A.Ron are incredibly impressed with the season two premiere of USA’s Mr. Robot, entitled “eps2.0_unk4sk_pt1.tc” and “eps2.0_unm4sk_pt2.tc”. We do a deep dive of the character beats and themes of the episode, as well as popular fan concepts like the “Prison Theory”, before considering some fellow-fan feedback.
Watch us record the podcast, including all the sound checks, flubs, and riveting research breaks that you’ve always wished you could see… Hey, at least you can hear the podcast before anyone else.
A.Ron and Jim review the disgusting, ill-conceived, disgraceful actually quite delightful addition to the Ghostbusters franchise featuring a cast of stellar funny women in Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Melissa McCarthy. The movie delivered solid action and laughs, a few gut busters, inspired performances by a lot of cameo actors who are clearly having a great time, and the correct and satisfying amount of respect and homages to the classic cast, including several nods to the late great Harold Ramis. So, to the dudes that hated on this film from the jump for no other reason than the fact that women had the temerity to re-make it, I got two words for you: Suck it!

With heavy hearts Cecily and A.Ron close the books on season four of Orange is the New Black, with final thoughts on the final episode, “Toast Can’t Never Be Bread Again”, as well as the season as a whole.
