Jon, Shane, and Bryan, sometimes known as the Ambulators, get a miraculous opportunity to discuss our favorite topic: Deadwood, or more specifically the Deadwood Movie. Does the series retain its grandeur or have 13 years off the air worn down the edges? Is Cruel Masquerade still as poignant and transporting as it was the last time the Ambulators put on their best EB Farnum voices? Listen and find out!
In our podcast about movie trio Unicorn Store, Inherent Vice, and Burning, Jon tries in vain to convince Bryan that Burning is worth paying attention to and we pitch a Mad Men reboot that we think merges boomer respectability with millenial flightiness. Checks can be sent to mediocremovie.club.
We had the terrible idea to put five people in a room, and some technical difficulties ensued. We apologize for the clicks and pops but we hope the looser than usual atmosphere makes for it as we work our way through the series finale of Game of Thrones. For all the talk of circumcision we left in, more was left on the ....cutting.... room floor.
The MMC brings a big crew to discuss the controversial developments in Game of Thrones' penultimate episode, and whether or not they come out of nowhere or are well-founded in past actions. Bryan saves his highest praise for the after-the-episode breakdowns while Jon reveals he has an odd way of enjoying his wine.
Jon, Phil, and Shane talk about the big culmination of eleven years of Marvel movies in Avengers: Endgame. Stay tuned til the end of the episode to hear Jon dread the new cinematic landscape, and before that, Shane extends his repertoire of accents into the fictional realm.
Jon, Shane, Riley, and Bobby have a hard time with the latest episode of Game of Thrones and the various controversies therein. Let's just say we make repeated use of a famous Dr. Zoidberg quote. You know the one.
Jon, Bryan, and Drew have a brief chat (by our standards) about our last trio of movies, The Informant, Murder on the Orient Express, and The Third Man. The last of these baffles us as a group, so much that we have to distract ourselves with Drew throwing his hat in the 'who does the worst accents in the MMC' race.
The big battle for the dawn has arrived at Winterfell, and we brought a full crew to break it down. In between discussing the tactics, or lack thereof, we propose a new look for dragons, imagine how Jon Snow would play chess, and ask the question everyone wants to know: Is Kissel good at archery?
We apologize for the intermittent beeping in the background. There were celebratory riots in Shane's neighborhood last night and road crews were busy repairing the asphalt. To make up for it, here's the link to the much-discussed Wired article about military strategy.
Jon, Shane, Bobby, and Megan discuss episode 2 of the final season of Game of Thrones, and the praise is much more effusive than it was in last week's premiere. We agree that more scenes should take place around fires and play 'Who's going to die horribly next week?' In the meantime, Shane can't read the agenda to save his life but he redeems himself with a couple pitches for spin-off series.
