The Dorking Out Show

The show for anyone who loves to dork out about the stories in pop culture that we love. That means TV and movies, books and podcasts, and any other kind of engaging storytelling we can find. We talk about Star Wars and Gilmore Girls, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Trek, Netflix and Amazon, Serial and S-Town and, and, and... Every week noted TV critic and blogger Sonia Mansfield and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Allan Smith talk about movies, TV, books and more from both a fan and creator perspective. Think of it as a great conversation over drinks with your quick, clever friends who know about a lot.

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.
