Elise and Dave continue their examination of Hulu's adaptation of Stephen King's 11.22.63. Jake takes a break from his JFK headaches in this episode, spending a little time in scenic Holden, Kentucky, where young Harry Dunning and his family are scheduled to be slaughtered on Halloween night. If the past takes exception to any meddling with its "greatest hit" murders, will it be a little more flexible when it comes to those "deep cut" deaths that are destined only to be commemorated in GED compositions? All in all, it's a pretty creepy meditation on meat and misogyny, with a lot of interesting echoes of David Lynch's Blue Velvet. Elise also finds James Franco's performance much to her liking, thanks to little soupçons of Cliff Robertson and Robert Stack that she detects in his approach to the material. Finally, she wants everyone to realize that time is too short to bother with all of those extra syllables in "misogynistic". "Misogynous" was good enough for sledge hammer wielding patriarchs of the old school - and it should be good enough for us.

Elise and Dave begin their quasi real-time coverage of Hulu's much anticipated adaptation of Stephen King's 11.22.63 with an in-depth look at the show's debut episode. There's a lot to discuss here - from the relative ontological fixity of "major" and "minor" historical events (why would "time" care? wouldn't any change be as important or as unimportant as any other change?) to the long-range historical impact of the Vietnam War.  Along the way, we struggle to pin down the enduring appeal of old-timey diners, Elise takes our lives in her hands by calling out the CIA, and both hosts agree that, if nothing else, old Al's pantry wormhole showed up just in time to whisk James Franco out from under that death mask goatee.

We'll be here every week for the duration of the 8-part series, and you're on our permanent invitee list - no de Mohrenschildt name-drop required!

“I want to drive a truck straight through her head”: it's the Valentine's Day episode at AKoD! Where we're taking a look at a couple of under-appreciated movies about couples getting a second chance at happiness through a strange twist of fate, starring women struggling with unfortunate of-the-moment haircuts, three names, and trying to get credit for being able to both act and sing. We admire the tricky structure of If Only (2004), with Jennifer Love Hewitt and some British guy who does a lot of TV; and defend the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John vehicle Two of a Kind (1983), recipient of a puzzling amount of critical venom, on the basis of its auteurish idiosyncrasy and class realism. We hope our podcast, and these movies, enhance your Valentine's Day, whether for giggles or as part of a nihilistic anti-VD campaign!

David and Elise contemplate the sweater chauvinism of Bing Crosby, the charms of William Bendix, whether or not women on the internet ogling Gene Kelly's butt is categorically different from objectionable objectification, the timeline of Scottish witch trials, and the pros and cons of purity-obsessed utopias that don't allow people to go to university in this episode devoted to two time-travel Technicolor musicals, or semi-musicals, A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (1949) and BRIGADOON (1954). Note: in response to listener complaints about both Dave's and Elise's volume (depending on the episode and/or your ears, one or the other of us is always too loud), this episode has been run through the Levelator, which is neither a lost sci-fi novel by Henry James nor a new James Cameron movie, but some type of software. Let us know if it's an improvement and some day soon we'll do the same for our back catalogue!
