We haven't posted a podcast in a while, but Jon, Shane, and Bryan come roaring back with a discussion of the just-ended seasons of Silicon Valley and Barry. Barium is an element, like silicon is, and it sounds like Barry. Get it?
Shane and Jon discuss the latest movie trio of Lo and Behold, Nobody Speak, and Audrie and Daisy while also announcing a big change to the MMC and praising the ingenuity of the makers of the Snuggie.
Jon, Shane, and Bryan talk about the end of Pompey and the beginning of Cleopatra in the latest recap of Rome's first season. Gerald the Historical Companion gets his feelings hurt in short episode.
Phil, Jon, and Bryan sit down for another entry in the What Have You Been Watching series. They talk about Annihilation (skip past the 12:00 mark if you want to remain unspoiled), 13 Assassins, Red Sparrow, Game Night, Darkest Hour, Black Panther, Mayhew, Lady Bird, and Mudbound.
Shane and Jon muddle through their discussion of three movies about women trying to get out from under male shadows, something they have limited personal experience with. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, The Silence of the Lambs, and Big Eyes are all on the table, as is the thrilling conclusion to the middle school division of Glenn Recreation Basketball.
We continue our Rome recap with talk about curses and pederasty and Varsity Blues. For MMC repeat listeners, Bryan still doesn't get references and Shane is one day going to perfect that Slavic accent.
Here at the MMC, we've been a little more serious in our podcasting as we talk about the best the previous year had to offer in movies and TV. That ends with our discussion of our 2017 Catch-Up Trio of Schlocky Movies. Not even a ten minute digression on Juggalos can quiet Shane's ire over Megan Leavey.
Jon, Blair, Drew, and eventually Joe sit down to talk about notable TV shows that aired in 2017, singling out some bonkers moments from shows like The Young Pope and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. We also drop a sick burn on an obscure basketball player for the Evansville Aces, so watch out for that.
Jon, Bryan, and Drew continue the MMC's discussion of noteworthy movies from 2017 by praising Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in spite of themselves, fawning over Lady Bird, and still not understanding the critical love for A Ghost Story.
We kick off our recap of the HBO series Rome with the first three episodes. Bryan, Jon, Shane, and Bobby discuss the social morality of the show, get sidetracked by Glenn Youth Basketball, and bring it back around with a game of How Dirty Should These People Be?
