The Deuce - S03E01 - The Camera Loves You
4028
HBO's <em>The Deuce </em>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 <em>The Deuce </em>denizens for the rest of the series.

Introducing Imagined Life Season Two

Harlots - 307
1773
<em>Harlots </em>continues it's back-half swoon as things continue to not make much sense, and we're left with too few characters we genuinely care about. Sure, Lady Fitz's impulsive kiss of Nancy was exciting, but there are two many things happening because of happenstance, chance encounters, and nothing really feels like it has consequences. There is one more week for <em>Harlots </em>to right it's ship, but Cecily and I fear we're once again the undertakers of Bald Move.

Margaret Wells leaves miles of burning human wreckage in her wake as she leaves the British Isles once more. We're hoping Lucy can right her personal ship with the advice and support of Pa North, but as eleventy million people have remarked this season, her neck seems destined for the noose, and the situation with her investment in the molly house isn't getting any less complex or fraught with peril.

Cecily and A.Ron are back to mourn the loss of a pillar in the <em>Harlots </em>community. What an episode! We were having so much fun, on the edge of our seats, giggling over our muff pistols, eagerly anticipating what a flustercuck the boxing match at Lady Fitz' palace was shaping up to be, and then <em>Harlots </em>crossovered with <em>Game of Thrones, </em>and we're not talking in terms of Theon Greyjoy. It will be interesting to see how the characters will weather the loss, or the show itself for that matter. We have faith in Ms. Newman and Buffini, but we're still reeling from the gut punch they hit us with.

Chernobyl - Episode 5 - Vichnaya Pamyat
4138
The final episode of HBO's <em>Chernobyl, </em>"Vichnaya Pamyat" derives it's title from the traditional prayer said at the end of an Eastern Orthadox funeral; "memory eternal". Our hope is that everyone who has watched this and will watch this in the years to come takes to heart this encomium, that we need to remember the cost of lies, the cost of taking our eye off our institutions and systems we setup to keep us safe and prosperous, because if you fail to do so the cost only becomes more dear. Thanks for watching along with us, we've loved having you all along for the experience.<br><br>Final recommendations for more reading and watching from our fellow fans; <a href="https://cleanfutures.org/projects/dogs-of-chernobyl/">this site has more information about the fate of dogs left in the Exclusion Zone</a>, and it's not all bad news!

Deadwood: The Movie (2019)
4474
&nbsp;Jim and I have come to <em>Deadwood </em>at long last, to behold it in movie form. We've seen differing amounts, but we have a lot of esteem for David Milch's western epic, and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent this week at the old camp. We talk about our experiences with the show, how <em>Justified </em>informs our thoughts on <em>Deadwood </em>and vice versa, Milch's thoughts on mortality, and how amazingly the movie gave equal closure and tribute to it's legion of incredible characters. <br><br>&nbsp;Support Bald Move:&nbsp; <a href="http://club.baldmove.com">Club Bald Move</a><br><br><a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/bald-move-tv/id593308372?mt=2&amp;uo=4&amp;at=10l592">Leave Us A Review on Apple Podcasts<br></a><br>Join the discussion:&nbsp; <a href="mailto:shows@baldmove.com">Email</a>&nbsp; |&nbsp; <a href="http://forums.baldmove.com">Forums</a>&nbsp; |&nbsp; <a href="http://www.facebook.com/baldmove">Facebook</a>&nbsp; |&nbsp; <a href="http://www.twitter.com/baldmove">Twitter</a><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim, A.Ron and Cecily team up to take on the end of the world as envisioned by Amazon Prime's <em>Good Omens. </em>Adapted from the <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Good-Omens-Accurate-Prophecies-Nutter/dp/0060853964/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&amp;qid=&amp;sr=">novel of the same name</a> by co-author Neil Gaiman himself, it offers a warm, funny, and human take on the Apocalypse, focusing on the unlikely friendship between a demon (David Tennant) and an angel (Michael Sheen) who have decided they like Earth like it is, <em>thankyouverymuch</em>, and team up to keep it that way.

Chernobyl - Episode 4 - The Happiness of All Mankind
4197
Hello, comrades! It's time once again to descend into the man-made hell of <em>Chernobyl, </em>now with 100% more puppy-murder! The deep irony of the episode's title, "The Happiness of All Mankind", underscores the misery of the people who were forced to evacuate, the soul and body destroying heroism of the soldiers and engineers doing the work that must be done, as well as the predicament of the people that have to decide between their principles and ethics and disobeying a political structure that can not only take your career and your life from you, but those of your friends and families. As we close the books on the immediate disaster mitigation and clean up, we look forward to what justice we can get for the victims and the world itself as we deal next week with the judicial and political fallout of <em>Chernobyl.<br></em><br>We got a lot of informed and professional feedback on the many questions we've been wrestling with on this podcast, but we were provided two documents in particular you might find interesting. First, a paper on how the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_law_of_oligarchy">"Iron Law of Oligarchy"</a> applies even to <a href="https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1407/1407.0323.pdf">democratic and open structures such as Wikipedia</a>. Second, a specific example of the <a href="http://www.uncomputing.org/?p=1622">tyranny of Wikipedians in the form of a misguided-grammar Nazi.</a> You may also be interested to <a href="https://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lancet/PIIS0140673607612537.pdf">read an analysis of the relative risks of nuclear power vs coal power from the <em>The Lancet</em></a>that I mentioned in the podcast.<br><br> Support Bald Move:&nbsp; <a href="http://club.baldmove.com">Club Bald Move</a><br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Fleabag, Dead to Me, The Perfection
2642
Me, Cecily and Jim have some recommendations and thoughts for your weekend viewing! We rave about the nearly flawless two seasons of <em>Fleabag</em> we just saw on Amazon Prime (00:00:00), Jim gives a bit of a preview for Netflix's new dramedy <em>Dead to Me </em>(00:00:00)<em>, </em>starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, and then... we get to our review of The Perfection (00:00:00). This is a movie that Jim walked out on. <em>Twice.</em> Yet <a href="https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_perfection">people are loving this film</a>. What gives? Cecily and me try to defend the film on it's merits, but the truth is it's a hot mess of a film that tries to get away with a lot it probably shouldn't be trying, and you're either up to seeing it or you're not.&nbsp;<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Chernobyl - Episode 3 - Open Wide, O Earth
3559
&nbsp;Jim and I have seen episode three of HBO's <em>Chernobyl</em> series, "Open Wide, O Earth", and are shaken by the graphic depiction of the Chernobyl first responders' last days. We get to see the horror from multiple perspectives, the victims themselves, the and the friends and family who struggle to cope with this strange manner of death and the danger it poses to them. Meanwhile as the Soviets manage to contain and stop the fire, we gear up for the long war ahead; to fully contain the death and destruction of Chernobyl it will require 750k lives and three years of sacrifice. Will they be up for the challenge? And will they solve the mystery of the reactor's destruction, so that it might never happen again? All this plus some light discussion on the relative merits of free market capitalism vs centrally planned economies in feedback.

<em>Chernobyl</em> is already one of the most fascinating and relevant disaster movies I can think of, and we're only one episode into it's five episode run. "1:23:45" does a great job of introducing us to the men and women that will be affected by the nuclear power plant's explosion, sets up the political dysfunction that will impede the increasingly desperate and heroic attempts to contain the environmental catastrophe, and visually and audibly&nbsp; highlight the dangerous, hellish conditions the rescue workers and plant technicians were forced to confront. Is the Chernobyl disaster a uniquely Soviet phenomenon? Could something like this happen in the West? And what lessons about a pervasive culture of lying and misinformation can we apply to our lives today? We hash out these questions and much more.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

The script also approaches "crackling" in places, as these potential parents fight over how far they're willing to go and what compromises they'll accept for their child.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

At worst, it's a poorly, written, directed, acted, and edited mess that has no idea what it wants to say, and is unable to grasp any of the subjects it reaches for. The only thing that kind of works is the relationship between the two ridiculously photogenic protagonists, but they are also the least interesting of the premises.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

The Deuce - 209 - Inside the Pretend
4649
The Deuce wrapped up it's 2nd season in style, with "Inside the Pretend". Simon and Pelecanos did an admirable job putting all their players in position to make the jump to the 80's. The pimps seem on the wane, the porn industry is still waxing, but the men and women of the industry don't seem to be enjoying their ascent as much as it would have seemed at this season's outset. It's hard to have a sunny outlook when people you care about wind up dead; that goes double when you're the one doing the killing.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

The Romanoffs - 105 - Bright and High Circle
4651
The fifth episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs has something to say, but we're not sure what it is, if it's worth saying, and if Matthew Weiner is the right spokesperson for the message, which seems to be; the worst thing you can be accused of is accusing somebody else of something they didn't do. Regardless of how we felt about the themes at play, the presentation left a lot to be desired as well, featuring clunky dialog and either stagey acting and/or bizarre editing choices or both.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim and A.Ron are here to gush about the penultimate episode of this season's The Deuce, "Nobody Has to Get Hurt". Of course, that means that someone will have to. The person who gets the hammer felt shocking and also inevitable in hindsight. There's a lot of story left to unfold, the question now is how much resolution will we get and how much will be irrelevant once the show fast forwards to the 80's. We consider Eileen's career trajectory, Frankie tempting fate, the fall of House Pimp, and much more.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

The Romanoffs - 104 - Expectations

Jim and A.Ron have a split decision on the forth episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs, "Expectations". A.Ron found it pointless and borderline unwatchable, where Jim was drawn into the human element of Amanda Peet's Julia struggling to deal with a secret that has been weighing on her conscience for 20 years. Regardless, the episode does feature engaging performances from very likable stars (the previously mentioned Peet, and John Slattery). What did you think?

There's mob money, murder, attempted murder, betrayals, breakups, Bobby's kid lost his virginity! The stakes can be as low as Vince losing himself for a few days tending bar in sleepy Vermont towns, or as high as a dead prostitute washing up and into Detective Alston's case load.

The Romanoffs - 103 - House of Special Purpose

Jim and I watched an unexpectedly spooky episode of Matthew Weiner's The Romanoffs, "House of Special Purpose". It's a tale that asks us whether we believe in ghosts or if one or perhaps more people are actually losing their minds. Does the spell work, and what is Weiner saying about coercive / abusive directors and set environments? Despite the super serious subject matter, we also find time to pitch a sequel to Twister, somehow, because of Paul Riser?

It's been three years since Don Draper left our televisions, and now Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is back with something to say? Is it good, is it bad, is it something even worth saying? After seeing 180 minutes of his new series, The Romanoffs, we're still oddly divided on answering those basic questions. It's beautiful, and thoughtful, and at times absorbing, but are the disconnected lives of eight (perhaps delusional) offspring of the fallen House Romanov interesting enough to merit our attention?<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim and A.Ron go cruising for the latest episode, "All You'll Be Eating Is Cannibals". The Deuce has always featured duality; Frankie/Vincent being the parade example. But here we see two raids; one on an underground card game by a professional crew of criminals, another by professional law enforcement on an above ground massage parlor. We also see members of the gay community step out of the shadows and emerge as people, basically. And Vincent is confronted by his duality being converged.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of watching Sharp Objects these past few months. We found the finale to be of a piece with the whole. Maybe there weren’t satisfying answers to every single element or question raised by the series, but isn’t that the way life goes? We feel we got enough through Camille’s point of view to understand what motivated Adora and Amma, and liked that the show left some things ambiguous and open to interpretation.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
3964
Special thanks to Tyler Shumway for commissioning the 2008 musical web series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. The creative fruit of the 2007 WGA strike, Joss Whedon employed his Hollywood friends and family for a whimsical take on Superheroes and Villains, casting Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion as a dynamic duo struggling to control the heart of their city, and one particular woman who dwells within it. From that fairly silly premise, a surprisingly good musical with plenty of heart is born.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Twin Peaks (1990)
5531
This community commissioned podcast is for the 1990 television series, Twin Peaks. Created Mark Frost and David Lynch, we can only imagine the impact this had on audiences 30 years ago as 30 million Americans obsessively tuned in every week to answer the question, “who killed Laura Palmer?” Jim ultimately doesn’t like it, but I see it’s potential and got a lot of enjoyment from the crazy tonal swings and quirky, off beat nature. <br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

You know the drill. Three shows enter, (HBO’s The Leftovers, FX’s Fargo, and AMC’s Better Call Saul) one show makes it out wearing the crown, taking the gold, hoisting the belt, etc. Another tough week with some epic losses of great characters on multiple shows. The big question on our minds; can anyone stop The Leftovers in their final two weeks?<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

It’s that time again, time to subjectively rate three dissimilar shows (The Leftovers, Better Call Saul, and Fargo) for no damned good reason other than that they all have the misfortune to share the same space/time coordinates. This week was even harder to call than normal, and for Jim it came down to an artful final shot, and for A.Ron the combination of a powerful, repulsive villain and an appealing buddy cop team carried the day. With a week this good, there are no losers, only winners.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices. Visit <a href="https://megaphone.fm/adchoices">megaphone.fm/adchoices</a>

Dear White People on Netflix offers an look inside race relations from the perspectives of black students attending an Ivy League college, The Handmaid’s Tale (00:24:12) offers a horrifying look into a culture where women have no rights to their own minds and bodies, while American Gods (00:47:42) is bewilderingly cool and awesome to look at, and probably a lot more, but we’ll have to get back on you on that one.<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices.

Can the Pope continue to cow heretics and Prime Ministers alike with threats of no win situations and divine retribution? Is Jude Law’s butt proof of the existence of God?<br><br>Learn more about your ad choices. Visit <a href="https://megaphone.fm/adchoices">megaphone.fm/adchoices</a>
