For the GoT season finale, the crew gets a little contentious about some of the choices made by ol' Benny and Weiss. We're reminded that Joe really does not like Theon, that Cersei got a sweet deal at the wagon store, and that the fantasy game is very serious and that the winner is deserving of admiration and praise.
The latest Game of Thrones episode asks too much of us, as it pushes us past our patience level. Amidst the irritation, we think about some potential pregnancy combinations, change Ashli's opinion about Milo and Otis, and we figure out where Ghost has been hiding
Our What Have You Been Watching series continues, as Bryan, Jon, Riley, and Bobby discuss their recent viewing habits, which include:
Wentworth, Nymphomaniac, Rick and Morty, Ozark, The Handmaid's Tale, Dunkirk, Jackie, Arrival (spoilers), Swiss Army Man, Edge of Winter, Two Days One Night, GLOW, and Happy Feet.
A dense, dialogue-heavy, anticipatory Game of Thrones episode evokes the slower, earlier parts of the series and is all the better for it. The MMC rotating sextet proposes some dragon-on-bastard romance, reminisces about Ice-T's filmography, and the word that Jon is unable to come up with is 'pareidolia.'
A fire-breathing monster descends upon the MMC podcast as Joe rejoices in his win about Jon and Dany's burgeoning romance. Shane also posits an alternative parenting method and talk of a pecan tree brings us to a strange place.
The MMC tones down the hijinks and mess-arounds for a serious discussion of Martin Scorsese's Silence. In a spoiler-filled breakdown of the film's characters and themes, Jon, Lane, and new guest Dan M talk more about religious persecution and less about Optimus Prime choking on a chicken bone.
A season's worth of action gets packed into a single episode, and the MMC podcast is just as eventful. Joe's back with plenty of Bold Stances, Jon cannot get over how fast armies and navies move in Westeros, and the commentary surrounding this week's Power Rankings is tres magnifique.
