In this week’s episode, we talk about anti-heroes. Are there too many anti-heroes on TV? What started as a really exciting storytelling idea has become the yawn-inducing standard. We talk about what Smith has labeled Toxic Heisenberg Syndrome and share our favorite TV anti-heroes.

Show Rundown: On today’s show we’re going to be talking about awards, and the ridiculous exercise of giving awards to artistic achievements as though they were trophies at the end of a baseball season. You can’t score La La Land or Manchester by the Sea like box scores. Totally unrelated, we’re going to talk about the Golden Globes, which were given out last night, and the Writers Guild Awards, whose nominations came out, and how to make the Golden Globes not quite so ridiculous.

 

Topic 1: Golden Globes, Oscar Predictions, and How to Make the Golden Globes Better

Winners

Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig

Meryl Streep's Acceptance Speech

Topic 2: Writers Guild nominations

The Writers Guild nominations were announced last week, and because we take our Oscar picks so seriously, we need to talk about them. Also, we needed a Topic 2.

Show Rundown: In this week’s episode, we review the latest installment in the Harry Potter universe, “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.” Did it cast a spell on us? Listen and find out. Then we talk about the legacy of Harry Potter. Is it a universe in search of a story? In our third segment, we’re going to send you off to Thanksgiving with a fun game you can play with your friends and family: Dorking Out Production Studios. We talk about the movies and TV shows we would greenlight if we were in charge so listen up, Hollywood! Plus our favorite headlines of the week.

Topic 1: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is the latest entry in the Harry Potter franchise. It’s based on the 2001 book written by JK Rowling, under the name of fictitious author Newt Scamander. The book is 128 pages long, but it’s the jumping off point for five -- that’s right FIVE -- movies. I’m starting to think that Peter Jackson was showing restraint by making only three movies out of The Hobbit. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, who travels to 1920s New York City with a briefcase full of fantastic beasts. Of course, some of the creatures escape, and it’s up to Newt, a no-maj (also known as a muggle) named Jacob, a disgraced auror Tina and her oracle sister Queenie to find the creatures. Oh, and there’s a bunch of other stories, too, including an anti-magic crusade lead by Samantha Morton, Jon Voight as a newspaper baron with a son running for congress and Colin Farrell as a wizard investigator who is hunting a dangerous wizard … or is he? There’s a lot to discuss. 

Topic 2: Legacy of Harry Potter - Is it a universe in search of a story?

 

Topic 3: Dorking Out Studios

Chris and Sonia imagine the movies, TV shows, etc. we’d greenlight if we were studio heads.
