Game of Thrones – 506 – “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”

There is a lot to like about this episode; some real movement with Arya’s plot that inspires a bit of awe and dread, some great quiet moments with Tyrion and Jorah, and some interesting moments of ham fisted court intrigue courtesy one Cersei Lannister. And then there’s everything about Dorne. And, you know, Sansa. Hopefully, we, the show, and Sansa will all bounce back next week. Until then, enjoy the podcast and the feedback, and get ready for our SpoiLORE cast extravaganza coming out Friday. See you then!

Bald Movies – “Memento” – Commissioned Podcast

Special thanks once again to Andrew “The Commissioner” Mount, for having us do the 2001 Christopher Nolan movie, “Memento”. Starring Guy Pierce and Carrie-Anne Moss, Memento is an engaging, cerebral, well crafted thriller mystery with an ingenious plot device that plays with our sense of memory and time. We both highly recommend you see this movie before listening to the podcast, as the first time viewing experience of this movie is hard to beat, and it’s an excellent film. If you can find it please give it a shot and then come back and see what we had to say about it.

Thanks, Andrew, that was fun and intellectually stimulating! Do you have something you’d like us to blab about on a special podcast just for you? Find out how you can commission your very own podcast right here.

Mad Men Happy Hour – 713 – “The Milk and Honey Route”

Jim and A.Ron are here to help you sort through the complex feelings we’re all getting at the prospect of Pete getting the happiest of potential Mad Men endings, as we unpack the tragic and yet strangely hopeful penultimate episode entitled “The Milk and Honey Route”… We discuss small town hustles, German cannibalism, Betty’s dignity and grace in the face of genuine crisis — no, really! — Sally’s forced evolution into the role of mother, and Duck’s high stakes game of career poker with Pete, Pete trading in the Pit for a life of redemption and bliss reunited with his family in Wichita, and Don finally embracing the hobo lifestyle that has called out to him since his boyhood. It’s a terrific, complex, moving episode that sets us up beautifully for the end. We’ll be with you the whole way, not just next week for the finale, but the week after too, as we indulge in a series finale podcast spectacular. See you then!
