Rundown: We return now to the old west, and examine the state of the modern western and our reactions to Anton Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. We then dive into two of the greatest TV shows of all time, which just started their new seasons… Family Guy and the PJs. Now, really we’re talking about season 20 of South Park and the 28th season of The Simpsons. Then we have a talk about modern movie soundtracks, stemming from a thoughtful video on music in Marvel movies. Can you hum Captain America’s theme?
And finally we talk about our favorite headlines, and I give you the to do list we promised last week about how it win your own Emmy.
