Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

As soon as we hit 4 content feedback survey submissions and with 50% of those saying they were interested in a podcast dedicated to television, Rob deemed it necessary that the Alternate Ending community know our immediate feelings on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Unlike Tim, who after a long, stressful day unwinds with a little Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, sometimes Rob and I just won’t make it through a 2-hour-and-something movie.  By the time the kids have come down 17 times to tell us they’re thirsty or remind us that they hate school, our nights are short.  So instead, what usually happens is we have a mini-marital spat about “somebody finding something good to watch” (it’s actually not that mini, it’s one of our biggest rage-triggers) and one of us ends up wielding the unwanted power of finding something interesting for the next 45 minutes before we drift off.

So we’ll just say it in hushed voices.  We love TV.  There. It’s out there. We love movies too, but we also love what TV has to offer our fatigued-parent lives.  The other thing is, we love talking about TV too… we bore our friends and neighbors with all of our favorites.  It’s fair to say that Rob is desperate for TV community… unfortunately, even my Dad is ghosting him…

Rob: “Dad? The Expanse…. hello?” **Crickets**

All that said, the only way Rob could get me on board with starting a pod spin-off is to call this what it is, a TV podcast pilot.  A 6 episode pilot – A Worthy Binge, where Rob and I will be joined by Brennan Klein to pick our way through the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier!

On THIS episode, we share our thoughts on the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and we each bring another show to tell you about! Brennan brings Brain Dead, Rob shares his thoughts on the grimy thriller The Servant and I share my thoughts on the millennial-murder-nightmare show Search Party!

Episodes will be released every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks.

We hope you’ll share your thoughts on the episode (or shows that you’re loving!!) in the comments or pre-submit your thoughts on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode we’re covering to to get in on the discussion!
