Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E9 “Visiting Hours” Recap

Now for our recap. Em and Sue look back on this episode and try not to panic about all the stuff that somehow needs to be in the finale. Trust the writers has been a pretty good, fail safe mantra so far, so that is exactly what we are going to do. We talk a lot about our theories and we also do a fair bit of theorizing about the final episode that is now just DAYS AWAY!!

Does Dylemma find a way to go on? Does Romero get his revenge? Does Mother let Norman come out to play ever again, or is that apple pie going to burn in that oven? Does that ring get back on Norma’s cold, dead, hand or does Romero run off to that cabin with Maggie? (haha! just had to throw that one in, even if the thought makes me a little queasy.) Speaking of queasy– Norman went a whole episode without throwing up! Good on you, Norman!

IdjitCast Newbentary for “Hammer of the Gods”

According to an archived GeoCities page I found, the recipe for a “Hammer of the Gods” shot is equal parts Amaretto, Sambuca, and SoCo, but that’s not what the episode is about.

This week is the Newbentary for “Hammer of the Gods,” so grab a playable copy of the episode and listen along!

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E8 “The Body”

Here we are at the end of the series (not quite but close enough!) and things are definitely coming to a head.   We are confused by the title though…THE Body doesn’t seem to be descriptive enough. Bodies is more like, but this episode or the lake didn’t seem to have enough bodies in it for Sue and Em. There’s a body in the basement now, and one used to be in there that is now lying in amongst the pines. WHO IS THE BODY?? Chick’s racoon?




RIP, Charles “Chick” Hogan. We wish you comfort, peace and boar jerky in the great beyond.

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E7 “Inseparable” Recap

We recap this week and try to come up with scenarios that possibly could be where the show goes from here. We came up with a few good ones, but we know we are wrong, cause this show has made it abundantly clear that it is smarter than us. But Emily is crossing her fingers for Grandpa Romero anyway.
In the actual show, Dylan came to visit, Madeline is hunting for lost husbands (three words Maddie: shower curtain burrito), and Norma was buried like Snow White and Head Norma got stabby and Norman got confessy. Oh and Dylan got Gilesed. In other words, it was a great time.

IdjitCast Season Five Episode Eighteen “Point of No Return”

Dean is on the edge of saying “Yes” to Michael, but the rest of our team pull him back. Then they find that he angels have brought back the Winchester’s half-brother Adam, as bait to lure Dean into saying yes. Can they work out a way to get Zachariah off their tails for good?

It’s time for us to discuss “Point of No Return” If you listen, then you could hear:


Pick your poison, booze or Haagen-dazs?

Necessary 80’s sitcom joke.

What can you mail?

Remember when school bears were a thing?

…and you know who “they” are…

Wait, didn’t they say that before?

Wait, didn’t they say that before?

My name’s Zachariah and I’m into internal injuries.

Tossed around by an invisible horse?

Crown and cheeseburger have to be seen… another Ramjack tangent.

Dean was dead dead.

That’s “The Hammer of God,” actually.

Or, that movie.

Tribulations, isn’t that a thing?

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E7 “Inseparable” Feedback

It’s feedback time! The action at the hotel this week slowed down a little, but don’t get too comfortable, the yellow crime scene tape should be pretty easy to dodge. The B & B heard a lot of commotion in the main room and kitchen, but that didn’t wreck game night in the least.   You may have noticed a familiar face this week you haven’t seen for some time- Dylan is back!  His towels are a little softer and fluffier than Chicks, but they lacked his signature spring of thyme folded into it.  We know Norma’s were the best, but she is still missing, we are sure Norman is right- she is just “at the store”.  Hang in there, and once again- sorry for Norman’s towels, we know they come back still damp and dirty.  He keeps insisting they have been cleaned.  We are at a loss.

Thanks for writing in everyone and for your very insightful and funny feedback that provides us with so many talking points and new ponderings.

IdjitCast Season Five Episode Seventeen “99 Problems”

The town of Blue Earth, Minnesota is now a town of all hunters, and Sam & Dean are lucky enough to be rescued by the townspeople from a fairly tight spot. The townspeople have been instructed how to use a special Enochian exorcism, and are being directed to their targets by the minister’s daughter, who speaks with the angels. As the targets she points them to become more personal, it becomes clear that at least she is not speaking to angels, and may indeed be working a plan far darker.

It’s time for us to discuss “99 Problems” We will talk and you could hear us speak of:

Choosing Smurfier language for the episode.

Different religions have different definitions of the Smurf

The eschatology of “The Smurfs.”

“Don’t have that beer, kids. You’ll get dragged under a car and killed.”

Watch “Hot Fuzz,” you know, for the greater good.

We didn’t have to say Smurf too much, but then Dean did it enough for everyone.

Okay, “Smurfberry Crunch” takes on a whole different… yeah.

Further reseach shows that it must have been a different wedding Bridget Fonda was attending, as she didn’t marry Danny Elfman until about 10 years after that summer.

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E6 “Marion” Recap

Join us on this episode as we recap this game-changer. This week, Marion Crane checked in, Norman offered stationary and a sandwich, and then she took a shower. I’ll stop there and just quote my favorite tweet of Monday night, by @GeneHarl0w:

“Dear Feminist Version of Psycho. I didn’t know I needed you. But thank you. Turns out I’m aggressively into it.”

I think that about sums it up. Only four left guests!

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S5E6 “Marion”

This week, Bates Motel when full Psycho! Haha– just kidding cause man I’m getting sick of reading reviews that say that, because they’ve been saying it since the end of season 2. So can we put a moratorium on saying that finally? Anyways– this was a pretty cool episode and in this podcast we read your feedback.
