Game of Thrones: Two Guys Travel to Westeros

game-of-thrones-season-4

 

2Guys travel to Westeros to cover HBO’s Game of Thrones fourth Season, and in this installment we cover Episodes 1 and 2.

Spoiler Alert: Do not listen if you haven’t already seen Seasons 1-3 or the first two episodes of Season 4.

First a disclaimer: we do not get paid to endorse HBO shows. Yes we give them a lot of love but that’s because their overall quality is pretty consistantly amazing. That being said, HBO if you’re reading or listening we wouldn’t mind some swag…

Listen here 2Guys Travel to Westeros as we try our best to cover the multi-layered plot lines of Game of Thrones. There a lot of characters, plots, subplots, and themes in this show so it may take some time to understand it all. To demonstrate just how complex the show is, 2Guys both have read George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series but have forgotten much of the plot and twists and turns that occur.

Enjoy as we begin to cover one of the most acclaimed and controversial shows currently on the air!

As always our coverage is colored through the lens of the Best Guaranteed Best BullShit Out There*tm!

 

2Guys on Girls Season 3, The Finale

girls-season-3-music

 

Better late than never! We apologize for waiting this long to give our final verdict on Season  3 of HBO’s Girls. Here it is: 2Guys on Girls S3E9-12.

We were just left speechless at the Season finale: Jessa finding herself in a Dr. Kevorkian style cliffhanger, Hannah likely off to Iowa and leaving Adam to fend for himself, Marnie once again playing the role of relationship destroyer and Shoshana shockingly begging for “Old man” Ray back.

We rate the Season as whole, discuss its place in regards to the first and second Seasons, and answer the question that HBO has already answered: Does Girls merit another Season? Apparently so, as HBO has renewed the show for not one but two more seasons.

We also feel the show deserves another crack at the apple, but were still disappointed at Jessa’s overall lack of character development, Marnie’s overall arrested development, and despite a brief break in character, Shoshana’s story arc left much to be desired.

Still, we enjoyed Hannah’s continued selfishness as she sabotages Adam’s first Broadway play right before he goes on stage as well as her complete self-sufficiency in getting accepted to Iowa’s MFA program. She did it all by her lonesome in the same way Adam’s character was able to recognize Hannah’s disastrous effect on his readiness for Broadway and his need for space.

As always, 2Guys render their final verdict with their trademark wit and as always it remains the Guaranteed BestBullshit Out There*tm!

The producers of the Best Guaranteed Bullshit Out There*tm tackle the 2014 Oscars, airing  this Sunday March 2.

Despite having seen a sample size of less than 13% of the films, 2Guys are confident that they can deliver the goods. Listen here at the hilarity of 2Guys trying to muster some confidence to predicting even technical Oscars of which they know very little of: 2Guys on the Oscars 2014.

Have some fun and make your own predictions! Remember predicting the Academy is an art, not a science. There’s no rhyme or reason and often times you’re left shaking your head. Which is precisely why you need 2Guys thorough and wacky analysis of the whole endeavor as you make your predictions. Enjoy!

 

2Guys Remember Philip Seymour Hoffman

philip seymour hoffman

The world lost a tremendous beacon of the arts recently in Philip Seymour Hoffman and 2Guys pay their tribute here: 2Guys Tribute to PSH. He will be missed; chances are more likely than not that you have seen him in a number of diverse films, or if you were lucky, caught him in theater.

Listen as we also discuss the vice that took his life, including analysis into drug addiction, recovery and prevention. In light of all the bright stars we’ve lost to drugs, particularly opioids, we may dedicate a pod to just that topic in the near future.

Though a bit somber in mood, 2Guys still gives you the Guaranteed Best Bullshit Out There*tm, remembering the positive acclaim Mr. Hoffman received throughout his incredible career rather than focusing exclusively on his loss. The man was a work horse, both in film and theater, and his Oscar for Capote is only one of a number of accolades he accumulated throughout the years.

Because of this-his incredible amount of output-both 2Guys have films Mr. Hoffman starred in which they have not seen. We have made a vow to watch the films we missed and in doing so once again appreciate the genius that was Philip Seymour Hoffman.

We hope you choose to remember his passing in the same way: head over to IMDB.com, check out his filmography and sit back and enjoy the spectacle of one of the most talented actors of our generation.

2Guys on “Girls” Season 3, Ep. 1-4

Girls-Season-3

The ultimate hipster comedy of our time returns for its third season. Lena Dunham and crew lighten up the mood, at least initially, after a bleak Season 2.

Listen here as 2Guys rant and rave about the new season: Guys on ‘Girls’ – Season 3 E1-4 Recap.

We discuss the nature of Adam and Hannah’s evolving relationship after last season’s cheesy season finale, catch up with Shoshana and her new sexual freedom, find Jessa stirring trouble in rehab, and Ray is well, just Ray. And then there’s Marnie; she’s still reeling from her breakup with Charlie and a music video they shot together isn’t making things any easier.

We cover 4 episodes in about an hour so you’re getting about 15 minutes of the Guaranteed Best Bullshit Out There*tm  per episode.

Other notable moments include what we call the “stand alone” episodes that take place outside the usual orbit of Manhattan and Brooklyn as Adam, Shosh, and Hannah travel to the furthest rehab facility possible to pick up Jessa. We meet Adam’s sister and then things get a bit dark again. We discover Hannah may be quite callous emotionally as she shows no empathy when her editor dies and she is once again consumed about what will happen to her book.

A merry stroll in a cemetery concludes Episode 4 and 2Guys are left wondering whether the rest of the season will be a stroll in the park or continue with a touch of the macabre.

Disclaimer: we have watched less than 15% of all the nominees. This has no impact on our award winning Guaranteed Best Bullshit Out There*tm. On the contrary, it helps us.
