It’s about that time of year again, people. The time when studios begin pimping movies, actor and actresses to Academy voters and regular ol’ movie goers are able to view the films that have been buzzed about for months. October has typically been a warmup for the real Oscar bait films that premiere in November and December. But this year there are plenty of Oscar buzz-y movies premiering in October.

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron’s first feature film since 2007’s Children of Men, Gravity, has critics buzzing about Sandra Bullock’s performance and Cuaron’s innovative filmmaking style. Meanwhile, Captain Phillips and All Is Lost, too movies centered around two American acting icons (Tom Hanks and Robert Redford, respectively), escaping from dangerous nautical situations. Then there is 12 Years A Slave, the early Oscar front-runner that chronicles the true story of a Solomon Northup, a free man abducted and sold into slavery. And if that wasn’t enough comes the latest from director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) called The Counselor, which boasts an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem,  and Cameron Diaz.

The fellas break down these and some smaller offering in the October Movie Preview. Trailers for the movies discussed, in order, are below

The fall television season is upon us and Adam and Anthony are taking a look at the major dramas that are premiering in the coming weeks. There seems to be a few guaranteed hits (lookin’ at you, Phil Coulson) but the majority are a bit less stable. There are, regrettably, a few new vampire shows, cops going rogue, cops fighting the man, cops involved with blacklists, and a bunch of shows on the CW. The fellas discuss the various cops shows, what the hell the real story of Ichabod Crane is, why $5 million isn’t that much money and more.

But before they get into the previews, they take a quick look at Emmy surprises and pilots from the previous week.

And if you’re looking for a few more TV resources, the guys highly recommend these:

The leaves are turning, the temperatures dropping and shows are premiering. This week marks the beginning of a new TV season and the fellas of the Double A Podcast are here to break down all of the new offerings from the networks and cable channels. First up: the comedies.

There are hardly any comedies being released in the cable world, so race for comedy ratings seems to be a battle between the big four networks: ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Adam and Anthony break down each day of the fall schedule and give their DVR rankings – which shows will win the coveted spots on the DVR schedule. Will Andy Samberg be able to raise Brooklyn Nine Nine, even though it goes up against the looming behemoth that is Marvel’s Agents of Shield? The fellas take a look at which shows the newbies will be competing against to help determine whether or not they’ll survive.

Then the guys take a look at the betting odds for the 2013 Emmy Awards while predicting which shows and actors/actresses will take home the most hardware.

20 years. 20 long freakin’ years.

Over the past two decades, the Pittsburgh Pirates have set a record for professional futility. And since the dark days of Barry Bonds and Sid Bream, Pirates fans gave longed for even a hint of relevancy. And at long last, it has arrived.

As of posting on Wednesday night, the Pirates are 84-61 and not only guaranteed a winning season, but very nearly assured of at least a spot in the playoffs. (That is, if you consider the one-game wild card playoff part of the playoffs.) It’s a result that no one honestly expected, save for the perpetually tomato-faced skipper, Clint Hurdle, and the rest of the locker room. But the season has been invigorating for both the city and the fan base, and who better to talk about it than a pair of guys that have waited essentially their entire lives to see a Pirates game matter in September?

Adam called up fellow Pirates fan and ex-Pennsylvanian Matt to discuss the season that was and the not-so-crazy idea of the Pirates playing playoff baseball. They break down the potential lineups and rotation for the postseason while also looking at the few things that concern them. They also look at what it’s like to follow your favorite team from afar, how they reacted to the historic win and more in an all-Pirates podcast.

It’s a #BUCN good time.

Labor Day has come and gone, signaling the unofficial end of the summer and, subsequently, the end of the blockbuster season. The summer of 2013 may not have been a banner year in the eyes of critics (or the guys of the Double A Podcast) but that doesn’t mean that it was unsuccessful at the box office. In fact, 2013 was only the second year since 2000 in which seven movies made at least $200 million. (The other year? 2007.)

The fellas look at the best, worst and meh-iest of the summer season before breaking down the best of September’s movie offerings. They discuss where horror movies rank among other film genres, whether or not Ron Howard can mold Rush into a winner and their uncomfortable reactions to child kidnappings. Also: Joseph Gordon-Levitt watches porn and a TONY DANZA SIGHTING!

Trailers for the movies discussed are listed below. Continue reading
