    Series and Season 3 Wrapup

    Series and Season 3 Wrapup

    We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and now it’s time to say a very fond farewell and goodbye to the greatest television show I’ve ever seen, HBO’s The Leftovers.  After we ponder things we’ve seen and read since the series left us, we open up our bulging mailbag to see the multitudes of takes and opinions from you, our fellow fans.  Thanks for everything, everybody.  This was incredible, and I wish I could see you next week for more of the same.

    If you’re interested in reading some of the many things we’ve looked at since last week, Vulture has an incredible collection of articles and interviews, but this piece in particular was an exhaustive behind the scenes look of the finale of The Leftovers.  As far as interviews, Alan Sepinwall did a bang up job of talking with Carrie Coon, Mimi Leder, and Damon Lindelof himself.

    Can you take a minute or two to complete our survey?  It will help us make Bald Move better, and it’s completely anonymous!

    308 – The Book of Nora

    308 – The Book of Nora

    Jim, A.Ron, and hundreds of listeners grapple with their feelings about the series finale of HBO’s The Leftovers, “The Book of Nora”.  Was it good because it was a work of art that was brilliantly written, expertly acted and shot, and in it’s rigid adherence to ambiguity the most Leftovers The Leftovers of all time?  Or was it bad because it answered nothing, or everything, or too much at any rate, or betrayed or gave short shrift to characters we cared deeply about, or invalidated what we felt about past episodes?  The answer, more than usual, rests with the viewer, and everybody’s got thoughts.  We try to capture as many as we can.  But we also promise to return next week for more!  One final podcast before we say goodbye to The Leftovers, forever.  If that’s not worth of a Max Richter soundtrack, what the hell is?

    PLEASE TAKE OUR SURVEY!  It will help us plot the future of Bald Move!

    307 – The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)

    307 – The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)

    We are incredibly pleased with the penultimate episode of HBO’s The Leftovers, “The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)”.  It is true that this episode is ridiculous, and dumb, and it doesn’t make any sense, and we shouldn’t care so much about, much like the reaction of Kevin himself.  But we can’t help it.  Everything they were selling we were buying, and in bulk.  Dick jokes.  Sure.  Body swapping between twin Kevins?  Why not?  Surprise guest stars as Secretary of Defense and the Vice President?  Shut up and take my money!  It’s crazy how this show can do no wrong with us, but we suspect it’s because this show can’t help but be true to their characters and find an emotional truth at the core of it that manages to surprise and delight us.  Can’t wait for the finale next week!  See you there…

    306 – Certified

    306 – Certified

    Jim and A.Ron talk about the latest episode of The Leftovers, “Certified”.  A very dark, powerful episode that has us rethinking how much sunshine and good feelings the finale is going to allow us to have before everything is said and done.  We discuss when Laurie decided on her final course of action, Nora’s beach ball metaphor, the inability of Kevin Sr. to properly judge whether he ends up saving the world, and our thoughts and expectations for the end now that we’re only 2 episodes away.  Because happy ending or sad, we’re going to be forced to say goodbye to all these characters we’ve grown to love and care for, and I for one am not ready!

    305 – It’s a Matt Matt Matt Matt World

    305 – It’s a Matt Matt Matt Matt World

    HBO’s The Leftovers had a Matt Jamison episode in “It’s a Matt Matt Matt Matt World”, which means it was heavily thematic, absurd, inspiring, infuriating, and more than anything, Biblical in it’s intensity.  Adding John, Michael, and Laurie, and a bunch of hedonists who’ve formed a cult around a 91 year old lion just makes it so much more so.  We discuss Matt’s shifting relationship with his faith, a surprising amount on the human penis, and attempt to talk a few Leftovers fans off their emotional ledges.

    Read the Matt Zoller Seitz interview with Damon Lindelof on Vulture if you really want to explore this episode, and this season’s, very personal themes.

    304 – G’Day Melbourne

    304 – G’Day Melbourne

    Jim and A.Ron are struggling to get by in this post-Nora/Kevin romance world.  It’s just all almost too much. But are they done for reals?  Is there hope for a reunion, or a happy ending for these two, or should we just look for our nearest LADR box and jump in, no questions asked? But there are always questions, aren’t there?  Would you kill a twin baby to save the world from cancer?  What sort of crazy whitefella adventures are the Kevins going to get up to in the land down under? Will the sun still rise in a post-Mark Linn-Baker world?  I guess we’ll just have to keep watching…

    Please enjoy the preview for the latest episode of Quit Yer Pitchin’, tucked away at the very end of the podcast, that can be found exclusively on Club Bald Move!

Glad To See This, But Hard to Find

So excited to see that there’s a Bald Move Podcast for the Leftovers! You guys are my first stop for all TV coverage. Unfortunately I only found this by accident half way through my binge of the series. I guess I missed it when I searched a few days ago, so I’m super bummed that I missed out on much of this journey with you. I really wish you’d put the Bald Move brand right in your titles and maybe have an identifiable logo (For example: “Following the Leftovers - Bald Move.” All of your shows have different titles and artwork so they don’t stand out from your many competitors for each show. A search for “leftovers bald move” on my app didn’t show you at all, and just “leftovers” had you buried over 20 podcasts deep. I’ve had similar issues finding your other shows as well.

Watching and Listening Again!

After Mr. Robot, I found myself back here. I loved this show and never gave it the full attention that I gave to Mr. Robot. I also only got the heat you guys for Mr. Robot so when I saw that you had done THIS show, I had to go back and listen! AWESOME! This podcast holds up over time!

Well worth the time

I wanted to hear a podcast on The Leftovers to help me digest such a unique experience. I gave this podcast a try and these guys absolutely grew on me. Good chemistry. Interesting angles explored. Well thought out ideas and listener feedback explored. Their format is solid. They have a template/script notes but will spontaneously riff. A good time had by all. Much like The Leftovers, give it a chance and you'll see it's well worth the time.
