Rank #1: Making a Murderer

Podcast cover
Read more

Jim and A.Ron have a LOT to say about Netflix's documentary, "Making a Murderer". Lots of spoilers ahead, but if you just want our opinion on whether the show is worth watching or not, rest assured that it absolutely is. We discuss the case, the defendants, the evidence, the criminal justice system in America, and ask what can we do individually and collectively to fix the numerous issues that are shed light on.

If you'd like to help innocent people be exonerated, consider donating to the Innocence Project. If you'd like to know why you should never, ever talk to the police regarding a criminal matter, please watch this video by law professor and former defense attorney James Duane with Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney and former detective George Bruch on police questioning. If you'd like to join the ranks of internet detectives, the most current and best information regarding the ongoing cases discussed in Making a Murderer can be found on the show's subreddit. Just please remember to take into account the lessons learned in the documentary during your investigation.

Rank #3: Fyre (Netflix) and Fyre Fraud (Hulu)

Podcast cover
Read more

Netflix and Hulu had dueling documentaries on Fyre festival. With slightly different focuses, the documentaries broadly outline how founder Billy McFarland built several ponzi schemes on the idea of selling a fictionalized "baller" lifestyle to young, naive, rich people and took them for a ride. We discuss influencing, the morality of excess, and engage in the kind of barely contained glee at seeing narcissists fall from grace that you'd expect in this discussion of all things Fyre.

A.Ron and Cecily give their thoughts on what we’ve been watching the past week. 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.

Rank #6: Babylon 5

Podcast cover
Read more

Special thanks to Brian Strader for bravely and against all odds commissioning the 90's era sci-fi drama "Babylon 5". Jim and I thought such a sprawling project couldn't be properly covered in just three episodes, given our bias against the series dated FX, questionable set and costuming, and our rabid pro-Trek bias. But, amazingly, he selected three beauts that we feel gave us a newfound respect and understanding of the Babylon 5 fandom. Tune in if you want to hear a lot of comparisons and contrasts between B5 and DS9, discussion of interstellar sex, and appreciation for the emoting of snake men and owl people.

If you want to join us on the journey, the episodes we watched were 207, “Soul Mates”, 209, “The Coming of Shadows”, and 220, “The Long Twilight Struggle”. Brian was helpful enough to assemble a "Babylon 5" primer, providing the backstory to this trio of episodes. Also, friend of the show Jason Shankel from the Nattercast wrote a story for io9 charting the strange evolutionary process that brought the show to television, and provides context for B5's place in the pantheon of proto-"Golden Age" television shows. He also provided a list of "essential" Babylon 5 episodes, if you, like me, what to know more but have no idea where to start.

Rank #9: 2017 Emmy Nomination Reactions

Long time fans of Bald Move knows we don’t care much for most awards shows, and thus don’t comment a lot on them. But sometimes, the best show on TV gets royally shafted on an award show that purports to recognize outstanding work in the medium, and we just got to talk about it. You might not like The Leftovers, but it’s so galling that it doesn’t even get a nomination for any major category, while stale farts like House of Cards gets lavished with actor, actress, series, supporting actor nominati

Rank #14: Chernobyl - Episode 5 - Vichnaya Pamyat

Podcast cover
Read more

The final episode of HBO's Chernobyl, "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.

Final recommendations for more reading and watching from our fellow fans; this site has more information about the fate of dogs left in the Exclusion Zone, and it's not all bad news! Apparently some dogs have recovered and are healthy enough to be adopted! There are also two YouTube videos by Veritasium, "The Most Radioactive Place on Earth", and "A Walk Around Chernobyl"

We've seen The Umbrella Academy and Lorena, Netflix and Amazon originals respectively. The Umbrella Academy is a smart, fun take on the X-Men universe with some Noah Hawley DNA mixed in. Lorena is a four part documentary examining the 1993 dismembering case of Lorena Bobbitt. While the case is no doubt interesting and probably a big landmark in the struggle for equality of the sexes, we're not sure this production is doing a great job of raising these issues or presenting the facts in a straightforwa

Rank #19: Chernobyl - Episode 4 - The Happiness of All Mankind

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello, comrades! It's time once again to descend into the man-made hell of Chernobyl, 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 Chernobyl.

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 "Iron Law of Oligarchy" applies even to democratic and open structures such as Wikipedia. Second, a specific example of the tyranny of Wikipedians in the form of a misguided-grammar Nazi. You may also be interested to read an analysis of the relative risks of nuclear power vs coal power from the The Lancetthat I mentioned in the podcast.
