Star Cruiser, Crush Crush.
[ 00:00:10:00 ] - [ 00:00:12:00 ]
You don't remember that?
[ 00:00:13:00 ] - [ 00:00:17:00 ]
In this episode, psychic worms try to infiltrate the Jedi.
[ 00:00:17:00 ] - [ 00:00:21:00 ]
And the Jedi try to infiltrate a wormy psycho.
[ 00:00:21:00 ] - [ 00:00:30:00 ]
We'll discuss Clone Wars
episodes 2-8 and 2-9 and survey the recent sci-fi landscape in this edition of the 11 Parsecs Podcast.
[ 00:00:43:00 ] - [ 00:00:46:00 ]
Hello and welcome to episode 33 of the 11 Parsecs Podcast.
[ 00:00:46:00 ] - [ 00:00:48:00 ]
My name is Eric. I'm here with my good buddy Jon.
[ 00:00:48:00 ] - [ 00:00:49:00 ]
[ 00:00:49:00 ] - [ 00:00:54:00 ]
And today we're reviewing season 2 Clone Wars
episodes 8 and 9.
[ 00:00:54:00 ] - [ 00:00:58:00 ]
We did, I think we did 3 on the last podcast if I remember correctly.
[ 00:00:58:00 ] - [ 00:01:00:00 ]
And they were all part of this like kind of like horror arc.
[ 00:01:00:00 ] - [ 00:01:05:00 ]
Which I'm happy to say that the first episode of, that we're going to be reviewing tonight actually continued that arc.
[ 00:01:05:00 ] - [ 00:01:06:00 ]
Which is pretty cool.
[ 00:01:06:00 ] - [ 00:01:09:00 ]
First off, before we get going, Jon, what are you drinking tonight?
[ 00:01:10:00 ] - [ 00:01:12:00 ]
Well it's funny you should ask.
[ 00:01:12:00 ] - [ 00:01:17:00 ]
Because a good friend of mine has given me a can of liquid happiness.
[ 00:01:17:00 ] - [ 00:01:19:00 ]
Oh, ironically I'm drinking the same thing.
[ 00:01:19:00 ] - [ 00:01:22:00 ]
You're drinking the same thing. No way!
[ 00:01:22:00 ] - [ 00:01:25:00 ]
I shouldn't have said ironically, but I'm saying crazily.
[ 00:01:25:00 ] - [ 00:01:27:00 ]
[ 00:01:27:00 ] - [ 00:01:32:00 ]
Yeah, coincidentally. Liquid happiness juicy IPA
. 7% Sierra Nevada.
[ 00:01:32:00 ] - [ 00:01:39:00 ]
So what made you, what prompted you to bestow upon me this wonderful treasure?
[ 00:01:39:00 ] - [ 00:01:43:00 ]
So I've gotten to where I buy a six pack now and I save two off.
[ 00:01:43:00 ] - [ 00:01:45:00 ]
And then anytime you come over to my house I force beer upon you.
[ 00:01:45:00 ] - [ 00:01:48:00 ]
Which is a totally horrible thing to do to a friend.
[ 00:01:48:00 ] - [ 00:01:51:00 ]
And that way we can kind of drink the same thing whenever we can.
[ 00:01:51:00 ] - [ 00:01:52:00 ]
We just have to see.
[ 00:01:52:00 ] - [ 00:01:54:00 ]
I've got another one stocked away for you.
[ 00:01:54:00 ] - [ 00:01:56:00 ]
So I will say this though.
[ 00:01:56:00 ] - [ 00:02:00:00 ]
It's funny because we went on vacation about two weeks ago.
[ 00:02:00:00 ] - [ 00:02:02:00 ]
Right before I left I didn't have any beer left.
[ 00:02:02:00 ] - [ 00:02:05:00 ]
And I gave you two cans of stuff last time you were ever at my house.
[ 00:02:05:00 ] - [ 00:02:08:00 ]
And I drank one of the other ones because I didn't have anything else to drink.
[ 00:02:08:00 ] - [ 00:02:09:00 ]
[ 00:02:09:00 ] - [ 00:02:13:00 ]
So that one you'll have your own beer to review and I'll have another beer to review.
[ 00:02:13:00 ] - [ 00:02:17:00 ]
I just stared at that can trying to make sure I was grabbing the right one.
[ 00:02:17:00 ] - [ 00:02:19:00 ]
Now it's free and clear.
[ 00:02:19:00 ] - [ 00:02:22:00 ]
Yes, you can drink that whenever you'd like or you can save it for another episode.
[ 00:02:22:00 ] - [ 00:02:24:00 ]
[ 00:02:24:00 ] - [ 00:02:27:00 ]
It is yours though. It is yours in perpetuity.
[ 00:02:27:00 ] - [ 00:02:29:00 ]
Alright, are you ready to crack these open?
[ 00:02:29:00 ] - [ 00:02:31:00 ]
Yes, by all means.
[ 00:02:31:00 ] - [ 00:02:33:00 ]
Alright, so let's do it. 3, 2, oh wait hold on.
[ 00:02:33:00 ] - [ 00:02:35:00 ]
I've got to get my, I cut my finger nails today.
[ 00:02:35:00 ] - [ 00:02:36:00 ]
I've got to get, okay, I got it.
[ 00:02:36:00 ] - [ 00:02:38:00 ]
3, 2, 1.
[ 00:02:38:00 ] - [ 00:02:43:00 ]
[ 00:02:43:00 ] - [ 00:02:45:00 ]
Who could pour, could pour.
[ 00:02:45:00 ] - [ 00:02:47:00 ]
I like it.
[ 00:02:47:00 ] - [ 00:02:49:00 ]
I like it, I like it.
[ 00:02:49:00 ] - [ 00:02:51:00 ]
This is a good beer, like I said I had the other four.
[ 00:02:51:00 ] - [ 00:02:52:00 ]
They were good.
[ 00:02:52:00 ] - [ 00:02:53:00 ]
No, no, no, that's it.
[ 00:02:53:00 ] - [ 00:02:54:00 ]
But they were good.
[ 00:02:54:00 ] - [ 00:02:55:00 ]
Oh, that's beauty.
[ 00:02:55:00 ] - [ 00:02:56:00 ]
Look at that.
[ 00:02:56:00 ] - [ 00:02:57:00 ]
That is beautiful.
[ 00:02:57:00 ] - [ 00:03:01:00 ]
Nice and cloudy or hazy as they might say.
[ 00:03:01:00 ] - [ 00:03:02:00 ]
This one says juicy.
[ 00:03:02:00 ] - [ 00:03:03:00 ]
I don't even think they call it hazy.
[ 00:03:03:00 ] - [ 00:03:04:00 ]
It's called a juice.
[ 00:03:04:00 ] - [ 00:03:07:00 ]
They don't call it hazy do they?
[ 00:03:07:00 ] - [ 00:03:10:00 ]
And I do definitely enjoy the tops of the Sierra Nevada cans.
[ 00:03:10:00 ] - [ 00:03:14:00 ]
Family owned, operated, and argued over.
[ 00:03:14:00 ] - [ 00:03:15:00 ]
Oh, that's, yeah, that's good.
[ 00:03:15:00 ] - [ 00:03:17:00 ]
That's how you know it's real.
[ 00:03:17:00 ] - [ 00:03:18:00 ]
Argued over, yeah.
[ 00:03:18:00 ] - [ 00:03:19:00 ]
[ 00:03:19:00 ] - [ 00:03:20:00 ]
[ 00:03:20:00 ] - [ 00:03:22:00 ]
[ 00:03:22:00 ] - [ 00:03:23:00 ]
Yeah, as good as I remember it.
[ 00:03:23:00 ] - [ 00:03:25:00 ]
Yeah, that's good.
[ 00:03:25:00 ] - [ 00:03:26:00 ]
Mmm, yeah, that's a good beer.
[ 00:03:26:00 ] - [ 00:03:27:00 ]
I like that.
[ 00:03:27:00 ] - [ 00:03:31:00 ]
I'm usually not like a citrusy, juicy IPA
person, but man, that one's, that was good.
[ 00:03:31:00 ] - [ 00:03:32:00 ]
[ 00:03:32:00 ] - [ 00:03:33:00 ]
I love them.
[ 00:03:33:00 ] - [ 00:03:35:00 ]
I mean, I can drink them, but I'm just saying I'd rather have like a little bit more hot.
[ 00:03:35:00 ] - [ 00:03:37:00 ]
Oh, I can drink them.
[ 00:03:37:00 ] - [ 00:03:38:00 ]
[ 00:03:38:00 ] - [ 00:03:40:00 ]
It's just the best beers in the world.
[ 00:03:40:00 ] - [ 00:03:41:00 ]
I could drink it.
[ 00:03:41:00 ] - [ 00:03:43:00 ]
Okay, let's start off.
[ 00:03:43:00 ] - [ 00:03:44:00 ]
Season 2, episode 8.
[ 00:03:44:00 ] - [ 00:03:49:00 ]
We continued our horror, what do we call it, horror arc of the brain invading worms.
[ 00:03:49:00 ] - [ 00:03:52:00 ]
The episode was called Brain Invaders.
[ 00:03:52:00 ] - [ 00:03:59:00 ]
And we got more of Barris
kind of teaming up, which I've enjoyed the cartoons that have that.
[ 00:03:59:00 ] - [ 00:04:02:00 ]
I like Barris
more and more every episode.
[ 00:04:02:00 ] - [ 00:04:04:00 ]
Yes, I'd agree with you.
[ 00:04:04:00 ] - [ 00:04:09:00 ]
And I was very happy to see more about the worms, that they didn't just drop that.
[ 00:04:09:00 ] - [ 00:04:11:00 ]
Yeah, yeah, they played that all the way through.
[ 00:04:11:00 ] - [ 00:04:15:00 ]
I mean, that's a pretty good little arc if you got, I think it's four episodes, and that kind of horror thing.
[ 00:04:15:00 ] - [ 00:04:19:00 ]
And they kept with the horror, they kept with, I think there was a Wilhelm scream in there,
[ 00:04:19:00 ] - [ 00:04:25:00 ]
they kept with the whole like vibe of like dark and like, it was more along the lines of like an alien type setting this time.
[ 00:04:25:00 ] - [ 00:04:28:00 ]
You can't get back to the med bay because you can't let these things escape.
[ 00:04:28:00 ] - [ 00:04:31:00 ]
And if they escape, they're going to, you know, go through all the people at the med station.
[ 00:04:31:00 ] - [ 00:04:33:00 ]
And the med station's going to go, I thought it was really good.
[ 00:04:33:00 ] - [ 00:04:34:00 ]
I thought it was a good episode.
[ 00:04:34:00 ] - [ 00:04:41:00 ]
I enjoyed the kind of, and we're full of spoilers here in case you don't know, so if you do want to go watch it, kill it now.
[ 00:04:41:00 ] - [ 00:04:47:00 ]
But the part where she, you don't know, I mean you kind of know, but you don't know if Ahsoka
had to kill Barris
[ 00:04:47:00 ] - [ 00:04:48:00 ]
And I thought that was really well done.
[ 00:04:48:00 ] - [ 00:04:49:00 ]
I thought it was good.
[ 00:04:49:00 ] - [ 00:04:53:00 ]
Like they ended it and then they kind of shifted perspectives, and then you're kind of like, oh, did she kill her?
[ 00:04:53:00 ] - [ 00:04:54:00 ]
Did she not kill her?
[ 00:04:54:00 ] - [ 00:04:55:00 ]
[ 00:04:55:00 ] - [ 00:05:03:00 ]
And then, you know, you get the actual ending of the episode where they discover that they're both frozen and she's still alive.
[ 00:05:04:00 ] - [ 00:05:06:00 ]
I don't know. What was your thoughts?
[ 00:05:06:00 ] - [ 00:05:08:00 ]
I can't say that they sold me on that.
[ 00:05:08:00 ] - [ 00:05:13:00 ]
There's no way that, especially, you know, they have the worm coming out and exposing itself.
[ 00:05:13:00 ] - [ 00:05:16:00 ]
Just like, here I am, kill me now.
[ 00:05:16:00 ] - [ 00:05:17:00 ]
[ 00:05:17:00 ] - [ 00:05:20:00 ]
No, she's not going to kill her. No way in the world.
[ 00:05:20:00 ] - [ 00:05:25:00 ]
That'd be a pretty traumatic episode if she actually did.
[ 00:05:25:00 ] - [ 00:05:28:00 ]
And I would be like, whoa, we really got dark on this one.
[ 00:05:28:00 ] - [ 00:05:37:00 ]
But yeah, she slices her in half with the with the saber and then they show her she's freezing, you know, shivering and she's up against the two halves of the body.
[ 00:05:37:00 ] - [ 00:05:41:00 ]
What if she climbed inside Barry's body?
[ 00:05:41:00 ] - [ 00:05:45:00 ]
Oh, man, that got really, really dark all of a sudden.
[ 00:05:45:00 ] - [ 00:05:49:00 ]
I thought she smelled bad on the outside.
[ 00:05:49:00 ] - [ 00:05:51:00 ]
She suddenly has like a pair of goggles on.
[ 00:05:51:00 ] - [ 00:05:52:00 ]
Where did the goggles come from?
[ 00:05:52:00 ] - [ 00:05:54:00 ]
And it's like, what is going on?
[ 00:05:54:00 ] - [ 00:05:55:00 ]
Anyways, I thought it was good.
[ 00:05:55:00 ] - [ 00:05:57:00 ]
I thought it was a good arc.
[ 00:05:57:00 ] - [ 00:05:58:00 ]
I enjoyed it.
[ 00:05:58:00 ] - [ 00:06:00:00 ]
Well, yeah, no, it was good.
[ 00:06:00:00 ] - [ 00:06:05:00 ]
Did you get any sort of when the the clone troopers were being turned?
[ 00:06:05:00 ] - [ 00:06:08:00 ]
Did you get any sort of like Order 66
vibe out of that?
[ 00:06:08:00 ] - [ 00:06:09:00 ]
You know, because the country.
[ 00:06:09:00 ] - [ 00:06:11:00 ]
But that's a good that's a good point.
[ 00:06:11:00 ] - [ 00:06:13:00 ]
I should have really struck me.
[ 00:06:13:00 ] - [ 00:06:18:00 ]
It's like this is this is this is like, you know, creeping me out because I know what's coming.
[ 00:06:18:00 ] - [ 00:06:19:00 ]
Right. Yeah, that's true.
[ 00:06:19:00 ] - [ 00:06:21:00 ]
I know. That's very interesting.
[ 00:06:21:00 ] - [ 00:06:26:00 ]
I never thought of it in that context, if I'm being honest.
[ 00:06:26:00 ] - [ 00:06:33:00 ]
And likewise, is this the first time we see Anakin
force choke somebody?
[ 00:06:33:00 ] - [ 00:06:36:00 ]
Ooh, when he's interrogating Poggle
, because I love that.
[ 00:06:36:00 ] - [ 00:06:38:00 ]
I love this. Like, OK, more of that.
[ 00:06:38:00 ] - [ 00:06:40:00 ]
Just a little more of a turn to the dark side.
[ 00:06:40:00 ] - [ 00:06:42:00 ]
I love the gradual nature of it.
[ 00:06:42:00 ] - [ 00:06:44:00 ]
Yeah, yeah, I think I think you're right there, too.
[ 00:06:44:00 ] - [ 00:06:46:00 ]
I think, again, that that is the first time we've seen a force choke.
[ 00:06:46:00 ] - [ 00:06:49:00 ]
If I can remember, I did it definitely in the cartoon.
[ 00:06:49:00 ] - [ 00:06:53:00 ]
I'm trying to think if there's been any other time that he's done like in movies or anything like that.
[ 00:06:53:00 ] - [ 00:06:55:00 ]
I think you're right. I think it is.
[ 00:06:55:00 ] - [ 00:06:57:00 ]
Yeah, I thought so. Yeah.
[ 00:06:57:00 ] - [ 00:07:02:00 ]
And I wonder, too, if like if they knew that Clone Wars
was going to be as long as it is,
[ 00:07:02:00 ] - [ 00:07:05:00 ]
if they like they knew within season one that they were like, we got three seasons, let's make him darker.
[ 00:07:05:00 ] - [ 00:07:09:00 ]
A lot of you know what I mean? Like like sooner rather than later.
[ 00:07:09:00 ] - [ 00:07:12:00 ]
But yeah, I don't know. That's going to be very interesting. I don't know.
[ 00:07:12:00 ] - [ 00:07:16:00 ]
I hope it continues, because that was something that we have not discussed.
[ 00:07:16:00 ] - [ 00:07:23:00 ]
Episode three yet. But when that comes up, it's such a just a heel turn of, you know, I am a bad guy now.
[ 00:07:23:00 ] - [ 00:07:29:00 ]
That always bothered me. Nuff said on that. I love I hope they continue this gradual.
[ 00:07:29:00 ] - [ 00:07:34:00 ]
You see little glimpses of him. Yeah, that anger, that anger in his face.
[ 00:07:34:00 ] - [ 00:07:37:00 ]
That was that was yeah, there it is right there. It's coming out.
[ 00:07:37:00 ] - [ 00:07:43:00 ]
And what's what's kind of interesting, too, is that that one where Padme
that we watched where she's been like poisoned or,
[ 00:07:43:00 ] - [ 00:07:47:00 ]
you know, she's under the he doesn't he gets mad. He doesn't force choke.
[ 00:07:47:00 ] - [ 00:07:52:00 ]
Like this is like a this is like a he's making the decision not because of a loved one.
[ 00:07:52:00 ] - [ 00:07:55:00 ]
He's making a decision because he wants the information. You know what I mean?
[ 00:07:55:00 ] - [ 00:07:59:00 ]
Like he's that's a real like that's a different decision. And yeah, that's interesting.
[ 00:07:59:00 ] - [ 00:08:04:00 ]
And I never thought about that. But yeah, you're right. I mean, he he's concluded you are in my way.
[ 00:08:04:00 ] - [ 00:08:09:00 ]
You have something. Exactly. You're in my way. And I don't have to take that.
[ 00:08:09:00 ] - [ 00:08:13:00 ]
Yeah. You know. Yeah. Seriously. No, no. That's that's that's interesting. That's yeah.
[ 00:08:13:00 ] - [ 00:08:17:00 ]
I mean, let's let's let's contrast it to Episode nine with the Grievous
[ 00:08:17:00 ] - [ 00:08:20:00 ]
which is really weird that we kind of jumped back to the Grievous
[ 00:08:20:00 ] - [ 00:08:24:00 ]
I don't know. Yeah, I thought it was good. Yeah. Yeah.
[ 00:08:24:00 ] - [ 00:08:32:00 ]
But I enjoyed the I enjoyed Grievous
in this episode of knowing that they were going to come back for him and kind of knowing their plan already.
[ 00:08:32:00 ] - [ 00:08:35:00 ]
I like that part of Grievous
. Like I like almost like like you know,
[ 00:08:35:00 ] - [ 00:08:37:00 ]
I'm not going to say anything about it. I'm not going to say anything about it.
[ 00:08:37:00 ] - [ 00:08:45:00 ]
But I like that part of Grievous
. Like I like almost like like because he's talked about as a tactician and and you see that very,
[ 00:08:45:00 ] - [ 00:08:50:00 ]
very much at the at the really the beginning of the episode where he's like, yeah, you're going to have to know we come back.
[ 00:08:50:00 ] - [ 00:08:53:00 ]
But also there's going to be Anakin
somewhere. You know, I mean, like he's he's looking for me.
[ 00:08:53:00 ] - [ 00:08:56:00 ]
He's going to try to board the ship like he knows the whole time that's going down.
[ 00:08:56:00 ] - [ 00:09:00:00 ]
And yeah, I didn't know that. I don't think we've been introduced to F.
[ 00:09:00:00 ] - [ 00:09:07:00 ]
Koth, the Jedi that got captured. Yeah, I don't. He isn't familiar. Yeah, I don't think I don't think we've been introduced to him.
[ 00:09:07:00 ] - [ 00:09:16:00 ]
But Adi Galea Galea Galea, I think so. You say it. I remember her character from Clone Wars
, the movies.
[ 00:09:16:00 ] - [ 00:09:20:00 ]
So, yeah, so she was small, small character, but still she was there.
[ 00:09:20:00 ] - [ 00:09:25:00 ]
I enjoyed the Ninja Droids. I always enjoyed the ninja droids. Sure. Yeah.
[ 00:09:25:00 ] - [ 00:09:30:00 ]
We talked about that the first time we saw them, which was the ones with the with the light up.
[ 00:09:30:00 ] - [ 00:09:32:00 ]
What are you what do you call those things?
[ 00:09:32:00 ] - [ 00:09:38:00 ]
They're like they're like the American Vibro swords or something like that. Yeah. Yeah.
[ 00:09:38:00 ] - [ 00:09:44:00 ]
Yeah. There's the thing of like what I'm thinking of American Ninja Warriors on TV where they have the poles with the big.
[ 00:09:44:00 ] - [ 00:09:46:00 ]
No. Things are you thinking of American gladiators?
[ 00:09:46:00 ] - [ 00:09:50:00 ]
American gladiators. That's it. Where they have the poles with the big pillows on the end.
[ 00:09:50:00 ] - [ 00:09:52:00 ]
Yeah. They're like, yeah, they fight. Yeah. That was awesome.
[ 00:09:52:00 ] - [ 00:09:58:00 ]
This is the energy version of that. Do they still have that show? Is there? Did they read on that show? Like on new TV?
[ 00:09:58:00 ] - [ 00:10:22:00 ]
Well, clearly I am not a fan because I don't watch American Ninja Warriors.
[ 00:10:22:00 ] - [ 00:10:25:00 ]
I'm surprised they haven't rebooted that show.
[ 00:10:52:00 ] - [ 00:10:56:00 ]
So what'd you think Eric? I didn't watch the cartoon. Sorry. I was watching American gladiators.
[ 00:10:56:00 ] - [ 00:11:01:00 ]
I was watching people shoot tennis balls out of small cannons at each other.
[ 00:11:01:00 ] - [ 00:11:06:00 ]
Heads up audience, we're revamping the pod. This is now American gladiators podcast.
[ 00:11:06:00 ] - [ 00:11:10:00 ]
I keep working in Flash or some other person in. Did you see what's happened there?
[ 00:11:10:00 ] - [ 00:11:13:00 ]
Did you, Eric, what are you talking about? Nothing. Nothing.
[ 00:11:13:00 ] - [ 00:11:18:00 ]
Yeah, it was good. And then the ending to this, I mean, I'm sure we're going to get like a two to three episode arc here,
[ 00:11:18:00 ] - [ 00:11:24:00 ]
because of the ending of it. Salamacar, I forget the name of the planet that they're descending onto.
[ 00:11:24:00 ] - [ 00:11:32:00 ]
But you kind of get the drift like the next episode or at least the next couple of episodes are going to be Anakin
and Obi-Wan going after Grievous
[ 00:11:32:00 ] - [ 00:11:37:00 ]
I enjoy Grievous
. I kind of looking for some new some new baddies, but I don't know. It wasn't a bad episode.
[ 00:11:37:00 ] - [ 00:11:40:00 ]
What do you think of this episode? I thought it was overall very good.
[ 00:11:40:00 ] - [ 00:11:46:00 ]
I love when they came out of hyperspace really close to the enemy ship. That was fantastic.
[ 00:11:46:00 ] - [ 00:11:54:00 ]
Yeah, that was cool. I love the entry and exit from hyperspace whenever they do it close to something where it's not just out in space.
[ 00:11:54:00 ] - [ 00:12:00:00 ]
I love that. What was the the guy who got captured, the Jedi who got captured? What was his name again?
[ 00:12:00:00 ] - [ 00:12:07:00 ]
Koth. He was an Abraham. I'm trying to remember his exact name. Eeth Koth
. Eeth Koth
. Jedi Koth.
[ 00:12:07:00 ] - [ 00:12:12:00 ]
Well, they they used him very nicely to set up concern for Obi-Wan, right?
[ 00:12:12:00 ] - [ 00:12:18:00 ]
Because you see how they take him down. Yep. And you see the same thing happening later with with Obi-Wan.
[ 00:12:18:00 ] - [ 00:12:23:00 ]
You're like, Obi-Wan, no, stop. Watch out. And of course, he kind of evades it.
[ 00:12:23:00 ] - [ 00:12:27:00 ]
Yeah. And the fight scenes were pretty good for both those people facing Grievous
[ 00:12:27:00 ] - [ 00:12:37:00 ]
Well, you led right into that. So I'm going to have to point out if I haven't pointed this out before, that Grievous
having four lightsabers should be the end of any fight.
[ 00:12:37:00 ] - [ 00:12:45:00 ]
Yes, totally. But he always takes all four and attacks the same way, like over the top or down below or whatever.
[ 00:12:45:00 ] - [ 00:12:51:00 ]
So you can block it with one lightsaber. I know this is nitpicking, but that's the stupidest thing ever.
[ 00:12:51:00 ] - [ 00:12:55:00 ]
Two up, two down, you're dead. Well, all he's going to do is do. You can't block both.
[ 00:12:55:00 ] - [ 00:13:01:00 ]
Yeah. Or two up, two down, whichever. But just spin them. Do your spinny thing. Like a food processor.
[ 00:13:01:00 ] - [ 00:13:05:00 ]
Yeah, do the helicopter thing. Yeah, do your helicopter thing. You'll take down whatever you need to take down, man.
[ 00:13:05:00 ] - [ 00:13:09:00 ]
Ain't nobody getting by that. You can't. They can't. Yeah, I agree.
[ 00:13:09:00 ] - [ 00:13:14:00 ]
But again, I wish they had not done that. I mean, he looks menacing. That's the point. I get it.
[ 00:13:14:00 ] - [ 00:13:20:00 ]
But it also, you have to then caveat it so much that, oh, it just doesn't work this time.
[ 00:13:20:00 ] - [ 00:13:25:00 ]
I guess you could sell it as he really doesn't know how to fight very well. We've seen that in the comics, right?
[ 00:13:25:00 ] - [ 00:13:30:00 ]
He just doesn't have any force whatsoever. So he's just brute forcing it, if you will.
[ 00:13:30:00 ] - [ 00:13:37:00 ]
And he's not very well thought out. He's trying to just smash, like Hulk smash, and he doesn't have finesse or technique.
[ 00:13:37:00 ] - [ 00:13:45:00 ]
Which is weird because given how intricately he plans, you would think he would practice a little bit with some saber fighting.
[ 00:13:45:00 ] - [ 00:13:50:00 ]
Also, too, he's got his cool little crawly thing that he does that's really freaky. It's a really freaky crawly thing.
[ 00:13:50:00 ] - [ 00:13:52:00 ]
That's very freaky. Every time he does that, that's freaky.
[ 00:13:52:00 ] - [ 00:13:57:00 ]
Yeah, every time he does that, I'm always just like, dude, you need to just sneak up behind somebody with that thing and just pop up high.
[ 00:13:57:00 ] - [ 00:14:01:00 ]
I don't know. Because he's super fast. He's like crawling on the ceiling.
[ 00:14:01:00 ] - [ 00:14:11:00 ]
Again, I'm not saying I enjoy Grievous
as a character. I'm just kind of getting to the point where I want some other baddie to show up.
[ 00:14:11:00 ] - [ 00:14:20:00 ]
And maybe I won't ever get it. I don't know. I enjoyed the previous episodes with the brain invaders, how that was kind of a new thing.
[ 00:14:20:00 ] - [ 00:14:23:00 ]
We didn't know about that. And we're like, whoa, this is like a horror.
[ 00:14:23:00 ] - [ 00:14:27:00 ]
You get that big worm mother and you're like, oh, this is even cooler.
[ 00:14:27:00 ] - [ 00:14:31:00 ]
to me is like, I think we're going to be chasing Grievous
for the next three seasons.
[ 00:14:31:00 ] - [ 00:14:35:00 ]
Just kind of, where did he go this time? What's he doing this time?
[ 00:14:35:00 ] - [ 00:14:43:00 ]
Yeah, and that sort of thing, it has to happen. But at the same time, it takes the Wind out of the sails because, oh, he's going to get away. What a shock.
[ 00:14:43:00 ] - [ 00:14:45:00 ]
Exactly. He's always going to get away.
[ 00:14:45:00 ] - [ 00:14:48:00 ]
It would surprise me if they caught him.
[ 00:14:48:00 ] - [ 00:14:53:00 ]
Yeah, I agree. I mean, I just I don't know. I mean, if they did capture him, like, what do you do with him? I mean, how do they secure him?
[ 00:14:53:00 ] - [ 00:15:01:00 ]
How do they? I mean, I guess you use the little things that like they use against Obi-Wan where they wrap him up, you know, and like stretch him out like a flayed man almost.
[ 00:15:01:00 ] - [ 00:15:04:00 ]
Just force choke him. Just force choke him.
[ 00:15:04:00 ] - [ 00:15:08:00 ]
So he's he's mostly machined. He's like the prototype Darth Vader
[ 00:15:08:00 ] - [ 00:15:11:00 ]
And that was kind of like what he's supposed to be.
[ 00:15:11:00 ] - [ 00:15:13:00 ]
He's a more machine. He's more machine than man.
[ 00:15:13:00 ] - [ 00:15:18:00 ]
I said that last I said that on a prior episode recently. Thank you very much.
[ 00:15:18:00 ] - [ 00:15:21:00 ]
Yeah, I was going to say, he's more machine than man.
[ 00:15:21:00 ] - [ 00:15:45:00 ]
But but yeah, I think it's.
[ 00:15:45:00 ] - [ 00:15:46:00 ]
I think that's what's supposed to be.
[ 00:15:47:00 ] - [ 00:15:50:00 ]
His but he's again by choice.
[ 00:15:50:00 ] - [ 00:15:51:00 ]
Right. He's doing this.
[ 00:15:51:00 ] - [ 00:15:52:00 ]
Oh, you totally. Purpose.
[ 00:15:52:00 ] - [ 00:15:53:00 ]
[ 00:15:53:00 ] - [ 00:15:54:00 ]
[ 00:15:54:00 ] - [ 00:16:01:00 ]
And also, too, I like the fact that he's he kind of like there's a line in the in this episode where he says something of the nature of I don't care about your religion.
[ 00:16:01:00 ] - [ 00:16:02:00 ]
[ 00:16:02:00 ] - [ 00:16:03:00 ]
All I want are the Jedi dead.
[ 00:16:04:00 ] - [ 00:16:05:00 ]
Right. Like that.
[ 00:16:05:00 ] - [ 00:16:07:00 ]
Like like he like he's he's beyond kind of moving.
[ 00:16:07:00 ] - [ 00:16:10:00 ]
[ 00:16:10:00 ] - [ 00:16:11:00 ]
He just wants to kill Jedi.
[ 00:16:11:00 ] - [ 00:16:14:00 ]
Yeah. Well, we saw that in that comic, right?
[ 00:16:14:00 ] - [ 00:16:15:00 ]
The that's right.
[ 00:16:15:00 ] - [ 00:16:16:00 ]
[ 00:16:17:00 ] - [ 00:16:18:00 ]
Yeah. I forgot about that.
[ 00:16:18:00 ] - [ 00:16:19:00 ]
[ 00:16:19:00 ] - [ 00:16:20:00 ]
He's like, I don't care.
[ 00:16:20:00 ] - [ 00:16:20:00 ]
I just want to kill the Jedi.
[ 00:16:20:00 ] - [ 00:16:21:00 ]
Yeah, that's right.
[ 00:16:21:00 ] - [ 00:16:21:00 ]
Yeah. Forget about that.
[ 00:16:21:00 ] - [ 00:16:23:00 ]
He just freaking hates Jedi.
[ 00:16:24:00 ] - [ 00:16:26:00 ]
Yeah. Well, maybe they wrong the man.
[ 00:16:27:00 ] - [ 00:16:27:00 ]
I don't know.
[ 00:16:28:00 ] - [ 00:16:29:00 ]
It is a good episode.
[ 00:16:29:00 ] - [ 00:16:32:00 ]
And if you like curious, I'm sure you'd like it probably more than the brain invaders.
[ 00:16:32:00 ] - [ 00:16:35:00 ]
I still say the brain invaders was by far the best this week, in my opinion.
[ 00:16:35:00 ] - [ 00:16:42:00 ]
Between the two, that's that's a little tough because, again, I loved the hyperspace exit.
[ 00:16:43:00 ] - [ 00:16:46:00 ]
I loved when they were flying at the end, when they were flying through the debris.
[ 00:16:46:00 ] - [ 00:16:47:00 ]
Yeah, that was fantastic.
[ 00:16:47:00 ] - [ 00:16:48:00 ]
I love shots like that.
[ 00:16:48:00 ] - [ 00:16:49:00 ]
I'm a sucker for shots like that.
[ 00:16:49:00 ] - [ 00:16:50:00 ]
It's space. It's space battles.
[ 00:16:51:00 ] - [ 00:16:51:00 ]
It's space battles.
[ 00:16:51:00 ] - [ 00:16:52:00 ]
[ 00:16:52:00 ] - [ 00:16:58:00 ]
And I loved that we could see, you know, they've got this plan, this elaborate plan.
[ 00:16:59:00 ] - [ 00:17:00:00 ]
Oh, wait, he already knows the whole.
[ 00:17:00:00 ] - [ 00:17:02:00 ]
Yeah. He already suspected the whole.
[ 00:17:02:00 ] - [ 00:17:03:00 ]
[ 00:17:03:00 ] - [ 00:17:04:00 ]
It's a plan.
[ 00:17:04:00 ] - [ 00:17:05:00 ]
He suspected the whole I don't know.
[ 00:17:05:00 ] - [ 00:17:10:00 ]
It's the whole you're waiting for that twist where they knew that he knew that, you know, that kind of thing.
[ 00:17:10:00 ] - [ 00:17:11:00 ]
So I enjoyed all of that.
[ 00:17:11:00 ] - [ 00:17:16:00 ]
And of course, even though, you know, the ending is coming, he gets away still really good.
[ 00:17:16:00 ] - [ 00:17:23:00 ]
I, I, I, I would say I like both episodes possibly equally because there's just very different.
[ 00:17:23:00 ] - [ 00:17:24:00 ]
Yeah, they are.
[ 00:17:24:00 ] - [ 00:17:26:00 ]
Yeah. And we just haven't hit the end of an arc.
[ 00:17:26:00 ] - [ 00:17:27:00 ]
And it looked a little different on the second.
[ 00:17:28:00 ] - [ 00:17:30:00 ]
The beginning of the next arc looked completely different.
[ 00:17:31:00 ] - [ 00:17:32:00 ]
Yeah. All right.
[ 00:17:32:00 ] - [ 00:17:32:00 ]
[ 00:17:32:00 ] - [ 00:17:34:00 ]
You want to give you want to give numbers?
[ 00:17:36:00 ] - [ 00:17:37:00 ]
Don't give me a chance to think about it.
[ 00:17:37:00 ] - [ 00:17:41:00 ]
Yeah, I was I was just hoping you would blow past that.
[ 00:17:41:00 ] - [ 00:17:42:00 ]
So let's do episode eight.
[ 00:17:42:00 ] - [ 00:17:44:00 ]
[ 00:17:44:00 ] - [ 00:17:45:00 ]
[ 00:17:45:00 ] - [ 00:17:47:00 ]
Give me two seconds.
[ 00:17:47:00 ] - [ 00:17:50:00 ]
OK. Three, two, one.
[ 00:17:50:00 ] - [ 00:17:52:00 ]
Eighty four. Eighty two.
[ 00:17:52:00 ] - [ 00:17:54:00 ]
OK, we're on the same lines.
[ 00:17:54:00 ] - [ 00:17:55:00 ]
I have a feeling I know your next one's going to be two.
[ 00:17:56:00 ] - [ 00:17:57:00 ]
[ 00:17:58:00 ] - [ 00:17:59:00 ]
Three, two, one.
[ 00:18:00:00 ] - [ 00:18:01:00 ]
So eighty four.
[ 00:18:01:00 ] - [ 00:18:03:00 ]
All right. What was your 78?
[ 00:18:03:00 ] - [ 00:18:04:00 ]
78. I mean, it was good.
[ 00:18:05:00 ] - [ 00:18:05:00 ]
[ 00:18:05:00 ] - [ 00:18:06:00 ]
You hated this episode.
[ 00:18:07:00 ] - [ 00:18:08:00 ]
No, it's not a hate.
[ 00:18:08:00 ] - [ 00:18:12:00 ]
It's more of a it's more of a it's more of a just didn't enjoy as much as episode eight.
[ 00:18:14:00 ] - [ 00:18:16:00 ]
Everybody can have a wrong opinion every now and then.
[ 00:18:24:00 ] - [ 00:18:26:00 ]
Brian Jones is back on the podcast.
[ 00:18:26:00 ] - [ 00:18:27:00 ]
We always talk about geek stuff.
[ 00:18:28:00 ] - [ 00:18:28:00 ]
What are you watching right now?
[ 00:18:28:00 ] - [ 00:18:35:00 ]
So earlier on a prior pod, you mentioned James May and Iron Man in Italy.
[ 00:18:35:00 ] - [ 00:18:40:00 ]
Yeah. And in passing, you mentioned the first series season, whatever.
[ 00:18:41:00 ] - [ 00:18:42:00 ]
Iron Man in Japan.
[ 00:18:42:00 ] - [ 00:18:44:00 ]
Yep. And you highly recommended them.
[ 00:18:44:00 ] - [ 00:18:46:00 ]
And so I vowed to go check them out.
[ 00:18:48:00 ] - [ 00:18:52:00 ]
And I wanted to just skip straight to Italy because I thought that was going to be
[ 00:18:53:00 ] - [ 00:18:55:00 ]
the better show, the better season.
[ 00:18:55:00 ] - [ 00:19:00:00 ]
But I knuckled down and said, no, no, no, I got to start with Japan.
[ 00:19:01:00 ] - [ 00:19:03:00 ]
That was really good, wasn't it?
[ 00:19:03:00 ] - [ 00:19:05:00 ]
Wasn't it good? Japan one was fantastic.
[ 00:19:05:00 ] - [ 00:19:07:00 ]
Yeah. Yeah. Italy was good, too.
[ 00:19:07:00 ] - [ 00:19:08:00 ]
That was fine. I think you kind of touched on that a little bit.
[ 00:19:09:00 ] - [ 00:19:13:00 ]
But the Japan one from beginning to end, I was enthralled.
[ 00:19:13:00 ] - [ 00:19:15:00 ]
I just I just thought it was the best thing ever.
[ 00:19:15:00 ] - [ 00:19:18:00 ]
I think part of that, though, is that that's like one.
[ 00:19:18:00 ] - [ 00:19:20:00 ]
And I think that you've never been to Japan.
[ 00:19:20:00 ] - [ 00:19:24:00 ]
That's like one culture that like that that we just don't really know that much about.
[ 00:19:24:00 ] - [ 00:19:25:00 ]
We just don't really know that.
[ 00:19:25:00 ] - [ 00:19:27:00 ]
We know about it somewhat, but not.
[ 00:19:27:00 ] - [ 00:19:29:00 ]
No, no, no. I thought I did.
[ 00:19:29:00 ] - [ 00:19:32:00 ]
That's why I didn't really want to watch the show because like, yeah, it's going to be
[ 00:19:32:00 ] - [ 00:19:34:00 ]
all weird stuff and karaoke and all that.
[ 00:19:35:00 ] - [ 00:19:39:00 ]
He he he did the right thing when when he started the series that season
[ 00:19:40:00 ] - [ 00:19:45:00 ]
way up north, right, where you do not expect him to go or at least not to start there.
[ 00:19:45:00 ] - [ 00:19:47:00 ]
You start you start in Tokyo or something.
[ 00:19:47:00 ] - [ 00:19:51:00 ]
Right. So I loved that he just went north to south,
[ 00:19:51:00 ] - [ 00:19:54:00 ]
started in the remote northern almost wasteland.
[ 00:19:55:00 ] - [ 00:19:58:00 ]
And the culture up there was so awesome.
[ 00:19:58:00 ] - [ 00:19:59:00 ]
The I don't remember.
[ 00:19:59:00 ] - [ 00:20:03:00 ]
I don't remember the town, but it was where he was walking down the street.
[ 00:20:03:00 ] - [ 00:20:04:00 ]
And he had all these little like
[ 00:20:05:00 ] - [ 00:20:09:00 ]
restaurants that were like kind of like huts almost.
[ 00:20:09:00 ] - [ 00:20:14:00 ]
Yeah. Yeah. And you just slide open the door and and and go in and sit and shut the door.
[ 00:20:14:00 ] - [ 00:20:17:00 ]
But it's like two little two little tables, like two little seats.
[ 00:20:17:00 ] - [ 00:20:20:00 ]
Yeah. Oh, it's like a like a it's like a booth.
[ 00:20:20:00 ] - [ 00:20:21:00 ]
Yeah. The whole is like a booth.
[ 00:20:21:00 ] - [ 00:20:23:00 ]
And it's this very communal thing.
[ 00:20:23:00 ] - [ 00:20:26:00 ]
Yeah. It gives you a sense of how tight the Community is up there.
[ 00:20:26:00 ] - [ 00:20:29:00 ]
And also, if I remember right, it's been it's been I watched at the beginning of it.
[ 00:20:29:00 ] - [ 00:20:31:00 ]
But don't they drink in one, too?
[ 00:20:31:00 ] - [ 00:20:34:00 ]
Like everybody's drinking beers and like it's like this little bitty room.
[ 00:20:34:00 ] - [ 00:20:35:00 ]
And there's like a lot of people in there.
[ 00:20:35:00 ] - [ 00:20:38:00 ]
And yeah, that's the that's the place I'm talking about.
[ 00:20:38:00 ] - [ 00:20:39:00 ]
Yeah, that's the restaurant.
[ 00:20:39:00 ] - [ 00:20:43:00 ]
And yeah, he tries this translator thing, which doesn't work at all.
[ 00:20:43:00 ] - [ 00:20:44:00 ]
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
[ 00:20:44:00 ] - [ 00:20:50:00 ]
[ 00:20:51:00 ] - [ 00:20:55:00 ]
That was a great start and I just loved every bit of it.
[ 00:20:55:00 ] - [ 00:21:00:00 ]
I think if I remember right my favorite episode ended up being the one where he does the sword thing with the Master Swordsmith.
[ 00:21:01:00 ] - [ 00:21:05:00 ]
Oh really? Yeah, I thought that was really cool. I thought that was really neat because you can tell he's very
[ 00:21:07:00 ] - [ 00:21:12:00 ]
like hands-on like type situations and there's another episode in the Italy one that I just find so intriguing because he you could honestly
[ 00:21:12:00 ] - [ 00:21:18:00 ]
see his passion for it. Oh, he loves the craft. Yeah, he just wants to know how does this person who is
[ 00:21:18:00 ] - [ 00:21:24:00 ]
insanely good at something like like how do how do they operate like on a daily basis or how do they how do they perform
[ 00:21:24:00 ] - [ 00:21:28:00 ]
their craft and with what tools do they perform it with and I love that. I think that's that's part of the reason
[ 00:21:28:00 ] - [ 00:21:32:00 ]
I love that series so much and I hope it I hope it goes on. I don't think they have a doubt.
[ 00:21:32:00 ] - [ 00:21:40:00 ]
I had after finishing Italy I had to look it up and see and I had read already that their plan was to do America and
[ 00:21:41:00 ] - [ 00:21:46:00 ]
everything went haywire. Oh, that's right. I remember that. I remember this. That's why he's like I'm going to Italy. That's right
[ 00:21:46:00 ] - [ 00:21:51:00 ]
I remember that. I do remember that now. And he he kind of talked about it like, you know
[ 00:21:51:00 ] - [ 00:21:54:00 ]
Yeah, it'd be nice to do a third one. Yeah, maybe
[ 00:21:56:00 ] - [ 00:22:02:00 ]
And I started having fun where if you could pick anywhere in the world and just throw James May, you know in that direction
[ 00:22:02:00 ] - [ 00:22:04:00 ]
Where would you pick?
[ 00:22:09:00 ] - [ 00:22:13:00 ]
Because it has to have some depth to it. Yeah, right. Yeah
[ 00:22:13:00 ] - [ 00:22:15:00 ]
[ 00:22:15:00 ] - [ 00:22:17:00 ]
Would either go probably Brazil or Australia
[ 00:22:19:00 ] - [ 00:22:24:00 ]
Brazil could be riding. I think of Brazil Brazil Brazil would be neat Brazil would be neat but just because
[ 00:22:26:00 ] - [ 00:22:30:00 ]
Yeah, I think Brazil would be cool and one of the reasons I say that is because he did visit the soccer club over in
[ 00:22:30:00 ] - [ 00:22:32:00 ]
[ 00:22:33:00 ] - [ 00:22:37:00 ]
Eventus stuff but yeah, I think Brazil would be Brazil would be cool Brazil would be neat
[ 00:22:37:00 ] - [ 00:22:39:00 ]
I think Australia would actually be cool, too
[ 00:22:39:00 ] - [ 00:22:43:00 ]
It's just that Australia you'd really have to do like outbackish type stuff and not like Sydney, you know
[ 00:22:43:00 ] - [ 00:22:51:00 ]
I mean like you I think yeah, that's too especially for a UK audience. Australia is way too obvious. You just yeah
[ 00:22:51:00 ] - [ 00:22:53:00 ]
[ 00:22:53:00 ] - [ 00:23:00:00 ]
No, they have a they have a lot of them. No, it's under death but Brazil is brilliant. That's a great idea
[ 00:23:00:00 ] - [ 00:23:02:00 ]
I was thinking maybe Turkey
[ 00:23:03:00 ] - [ 00:23:05:00 ]
Yeah, that'd be good. Yeah, that'd be good
[ 00:23:05:00 ] - [ 00:23:10:00 ]
Yeah, yeah, Turkey would be good that way I'm trying to think this is this is more like along the lines of like where would
[ 00:23:10:00 ] - [ 00:23:12:00 ]
I want to see Anthony Bourdain or you know
[ 00:23:12:00 ] - [ 00:23:13:00 ]
Where would I want to see Anthony Bourdain?
[ 00:23:13:00 ] - [ 00:23:16:00 ]
Cuz like he would take you to places that you're just like, oh we're going here tonight cool
[ 00:23:16:00 ] - [ 00:23:19:00 ]
And then you'd like get into it and you're just really like this place is amazing
[ 00:23:19:00 ] - [ 00:23:22:00 ]
You know me like like wow like like how does you know?
[ 00:23:22:00 ] - [ 00:23:26:00 ]
How do you plan this and like how do you you know, and this is just one episode, you know
[ 00:23:26:00 ] - [ 00:23:30:00 ]
Or two episodes maybe for his show and you're just like wow, this is so cool
[ 00:23:30:00 ] - [ 00:23:34:00 ]
And then that was where it became less of a food show and more of a travel show for me
[ 00:23:34:00 ] - [ 00:23:37:00 ]
And I loved that I loved that about that show and this is definitely
[ 00:23:38:00 ] - [ 00:23:40:00 ]
Travel show up front, but really he's he's
[ 00:23:41:00 ] - [ 00:23:46:00 ]
Kind of getting more into the culture versus it's a call. It's a culture show. It's not a try. It's a culture
[ 00:23:46:00 ] - [ 00:23:49:00 ]
It's not about you know, when you go to Tokyo stay in this district. Yeah, exactly
[ 00:23:50:00 ] - [ 00:23:52:00 ]
This is culture show
[ 00:23:53:00 ] - [ 00:23:59:00 ]
It's a little bit of a mix because I enjoy the and this is some weird, but I enjoy the usually he has a partner
[ 00:23:59:00 ] - [ 00:24:00:00 ]
that's really just
[ 00:24:00:00 ] - [ 00:24:06:00 ]
Different or off or funny or or you know, you mean the guides? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah the guy the other guide
[ 00:24:06:00 ] - [ 00:24:11:00 ]
So I enjoy seeing them and he focuses a lot on his relationship with them, which I really find hilarious
[ 00:24:11:00 ] - [ 00:24:13:00 ]
Because by the end of the episode he's like
[ 00:24:14:00 ] - [ 00:24:17:00 ]
Emotionally about this guy that he's and I don't know I mean you only seen it for an hour
[ 00:24:17:00 ] - [ 00:24:21:00 ]
So maybe he was here for like three or four days of this person and built up this repertoire
[ 00:24:21:00 ] - [ 00:24:24:00 ]
But I like how he buys the little gifts and like he did, you know, I love all that
[ 00:24:24:00 ] - [ 00:24:29:00 ]
Like I that's that's like a James May like thing to me. Have you ever watched this cooking show?
[ 00:24:29:00 ] - [ 00:24:31:00 ]
You know, I
[ 00:24:31:00 ] - [ 00:24:37:00 ]
The old cook. Yeah, I I that failed right that did not know to that. No to that in
[ 00:24:37:00 ] - [ 00:24:41:00 ]
Well, maybe maybe Amazon didn't want to redo it, but he could well, that's what I mean by failed
[ 00:24:41:00 ] - [ 00:24:43:00 ]
It was not it was one season done
[ 00:24:43:00 ] - [ 00:24:45:00 ]
But it was it was very much
[ 00:24:45:00 ] - [ 00:24:50:00 ]
He started that show if I if I remember right like he started working on a cookbook and then he started that show like
[ 00:24:50:00 ] - [ 00:24:54:00 ]
Right in the middle of kovat and he's just like what can I do with like what's something I can?
[ 00:24:54:00 ] - [ 00:24:58:00 ]
You know keep myself busy with during kovat and I think that that cooking show ended up being
[ 00:24:58:00 ] - [ 00:25:01:00 ]
what it was because they could have like four or five people in the room and they could wear masks and do all that
[ 00:25:01:00 ] - [ 00:25:05:00 ]
Kind of stuff and he had a helper on that show. That was really good, too
[ 00:25:05:00 ] - [ 00:25:06:00 ]
She was she's pretty awesome
[ 00:25:06:00 ] - [ 00:25:09:00 ]
And not in the end of the show at the end of the show like the finale episode
[ 00:25:09:00 ] - [ 00:25:13:00 ]
He like makes her like a dinner and stuff and I don't know it brings his character into it a lot
[ 00:25:13:00 ] - [ 00:25:17:00 ]
Whereas you really didn't get to see that too much on time here and in Grand Tour. So I like that part
[ 00:25:18:00 ] - [ 00:25:22:00 ]
I'll have to watch that next I I've seen that as you know scrolling through Amazon
[ 00:25:23:00 ] - [ 00:25:25:00 ]
Never paid too much mind to it
[ 00:25:25:00 ] - [ 00:25:28:00 ]
but when he mentioned it, I think all one of the Italy episodes that
[ 00:25:29:00 ] - [ 00:25:33:00 ]
It not that it failed but yeah, it just didn't take off. It didn't go anywhere
[ 00:25:33:00 ] - [ 00:25:35:00 ]
Yeah, I think I thought it was more of a vehicle to sell his cookbook
[ 00:25:35:00 ] - [ 00:25:40:00 ]
Honestly, and I thought it was something that sure convinced convince Amazon to do book wise and then like, you know
[ 00:25:40:00 ] - [ 00:25:44:00 ]
I mean like I just be like, hey, let's just kind of do this whole thing. I can do during kovat. I get recorded
[ 00:25:45:00 ] - [ 00:25:47:00 ]
It was neat. I
[ 00:25:47:00 ] - [ 00:25:50:00 ]
Was neat kovat was a neat show. I mean, I think it was a neat show
[ 00:25:50:00 ] - [ 00:25:52:00 ]
I think it was a neat show and I think it was a great show
[ 00:25:53:00 ] - [ 00:25:59:00 ]
COVID was a neat period for people figuring out what they wanted to do.
[ 00:25:59:00 ] - [ 00:26:03:00 ]
Like you had the 80s show, the Josh Gad thing.
[ 00:26:03:00 ] - [ 00:26:08:00 ]
You had the Happy Time News thing with a guy from the office, John Krasansky.
[ 00:26:08:00 ] - [ 00:26:12:00 ]
It was a neat period to me that you got to see people honestly be creative
[ 00:26:12:00 ] - [ 00:26:15:00 ]
and come up with something that they could do to keep themselves busy.
[ 00:26:15:00 ] - [ 00:26:18:00 ]
And you don't see that now because now everything's like,
[ 00:26:18:00 ] - [ 00:26:21:00 ]
alright, we'll do this in 2024, we'll do this in 2025 back again.
[ 00:26:21:00 ] - [ 00:26:25:00 ]
And hopefully, let's all hope that we never have to go through that again.
[ 00:26:25:00 ] - [ 00:26:28:00 ]
But I thought it was a neat way to see people's honest creativity
[ 00:26:28:00 ] - [ 00:26:31:00 ]
and what they could work with in their homes sometimes.
[ 00:26:31:00 ] - [ 00:26:35:00 ]
Just like a camera and YouTube. I don't know, I thought it was neat.
[ 00:26:35:00 ] - [ 00:26:37:00 ]
You're absolutely right about the creativity.
[ 00:26:37:00 ] - [ 00:26:41:00 ]
But I can tell you this, that was amazing, but I can tell you this.
[ 00:26:41:00 ] - [ 00:26:45:00 ]
You give me five years, certainly.
[ 00:26:45:00 ] - [ 00:26:48:00 ]
And a big part of my brain will deny that we ever went through that.
[ 00:26:48:00 ] - [ 00:26:53:00 ]
Because even now, when I think back to the isolation, the lockdowns and all that,
[ 00:26:53:00 ] - [ 00:26:55:00 ]
it's like a dream.
[ 00:26:55:00 ] - [ 00:26:58:00 ]
And I don't mean, I want to say nightmare.
[ 00:26:58:00 ] - [ 00:27:01:00 ]
Not a good dream.
[ 00:27:01:00 ] - [ 00:27:03:00 ]
Not a good dream. That's not what I meant.
[ 00:27:03:00 ] - [ 00:27:07:00 ]
It wasn't a nightmare. We didn't suffer. A lot of people did.
[ 00:27:07:00 ] - [ 00:27:09:00 ]
We did not. We were fortunate.
[ 00:27:09:00 ] - [ 00:27:14:00 ]
But to think back that we went through that, it's bizarre now.
[ 00:27:14:00 ] - [ 00:27:16:00 ]
And we're only two years past.
[ 00:27:16:00 ] - [ 00:27:17:00 ]
You know what I just thought of, John?
[ 00:27:17:00 ] - [ 00:27:19:00 ]
[ 00:27:19:00 ] - [ 00:27:22:00 ]
When did I come to you to talk about this podcast?
[ 00:27:22:00 ] - [ 00:27:25:00 ]
We've been doing this a while.
[ 00:27:25:00 ] - [ 00:27:27:00 ]
But it was right in the middle. It was like six months into COVID.
[ 00:27:27:00 ] - [ 00:27:28:00 ]
Was it really?
[ 00:27:28:00 ] - [ 00:27:30:00 ]
Yes. And I said, let's do something.
[ 00:27:30:00 ] - [ 00:27:32:00 ]
This is a COVID cast?
[ 00:27:32:00 ] - [ 00:27:34:00 ]
Yeah, this is a COVID cast.
[ 00:27:34:00 ] - [ 00:27:36:00 ]
I remember it was like...
[ 00:27:36:00 ] - [ 00:27:37:00 ]
That never clicked.
[ 00:27:37:00 ] - [ 00:27:40:00 ]
It was four to five months into COVID.
[ 00:27:40:00 ] - [ 00:27:42:00 ]
And I was like, what's a project that we can take on,
[ 00:27:42:00 ] - [ 00:27:45:00 ]
something that we're doing, something that we're working towards,
[ 00:27:45:00 ] - [ 00:27:48:00 ]
and let's go crazy and just dream of a huge goal.
[ 00:27:48:00 ] - [ 00:27:50:00 ]
And if it doesn't go anywhere, it doesn't go anywhere.
[ 00:27:50:00 ] - [ 00:27:52:00 ]
But let's try this massive goal.
[ 00:27:52:00 ] - [ 00:27:54:00 ]
And I started thinking about what can we do.
[ 00:27:54:00 ] - [ 00:27:56:00 ]
And I was like, oh, yeah, Star Wars.
[ 00:27:56:00 ] - [ 00:27:58:00 ]
We always talk about how we like the movies and everything.
[ 00:27:58:00 ] - [ 00:28:00:00 ]
But yeah, I'll go back and find the dates of our very first podcast.
[ 00:28:00:00 ] - [ 00:28:02:00 ]
But I'm pretty sure this was a COVID baby.
[ 00:28:02:00 ] - [ 00:28:05:00 ]
I mean, COVID's over. Why are we still doing this?
[ 00:28:05:00 ] - [ 00:28:06:00 ]
No, what are you, crazy?
[ 00:28:06:00 ] - [ 00:28:08:00 ]
Why are we...
[ 00:28:08:00 ] - [ 00:28:11:00 ]
Dude, there are like 3,000 fans waiting for this podcast.
[ 00:28:11:00 ] - [ 00:28:16:00 ]
And you cannot deny them episode 30.
[ 00:28:16:00 ] - [ 00:28:17:00 ]
I would not.
[ 00:28:17:00 ] - [ 00:28:19:00 ]
I would never deny my fans anything.
[ 00:28:19:00 ] - [ 00:28:21:00 ]
Because that's the creed, right?
[ 00:28:21:00 ] - [ 00:28:22:00 ]
That's the code.
[ 00:28:22:00 ] - [ 00:28:23:00 ]
Yeah, no, I agree.
[ 00:28:23:00 ] - [ 00:28:24:00 ]
We're like family.
[ 00:28:24:00 ] - [ 00:28:25:00 ]
We're going to try to see this thing through, man.
[ 00:28:25:00 ] - [ 00:28:27:00 ]
We're going to try to go through every single bit.
[ 00:28:27:00 ] - [ 00:28:28:00 ]
See it through to what?
[ 00:28:28:00 ] - [ 00:28:29:00 ]
Every single bit of canon.
[ 00:28:29:00 ] - [ 00:28:32:00 ]
Until the last Star Wars fan fiction is written.
[ 00:28:32:00 ] - [ 00:28:35:00 ]
We're doing this cast, baby.
[ 00:28:35:00 ] - [ 00:28:37:00 ]
What else do we want to do? Anything else?
[ 00:28:37:00 ] - [ 00:28:41:00 ]
So, do we want to talk about Andor
[ 00:28:41:00 ] - [ 00:28:42:00 ]
Are you caught up on Andor
[ 00:28:42:00 ] - [ 00:28:45:00 ]
No, I watched the first three episodes, that arc.
[ 00:28:45:00 ] - [ 00:28:47:00 ]
But I have not watched the third one.
[ 00:28:47:00 ] - [ 00:28:49:00 ]
The third one just came out for the second arc.
[ 00:28:49:00 ] - [ 00:28:56:00 ]
And I told my wife that I loved, loved the first arc.
[ 00:28:56:00 ] - [ 00:29:00:00 ]
And I told my wife that I want to watch this next one.
[ 00:29:00:00 ] - [ 00:29:01:00 ]
We missed the first one.
[ 00:29:01:00 ] - [ 00:29:02:00 ]
You want to watch it?
[ 00:29:02:00 ] - [ 00:29:04:00 ]
I want to watch it all the way through.
[ 00:29:04:00 ] - [ 00:29:06:00 ]
It's a movie. It's like a movie.
[ 00:29:06:00 ] - [ 00:29:07:00 ]
It is a movie.
[ 00:29:07:00 ] - [ 00:29:08:00 ]
It's a movie.
[ 00:29:08:00 ] - [ 00:29:11:00 ]
And each little arc, for those that don't know, there's 12 episodes.
[ 00:29:11:00 ] - [ 00:29:16:00 ]
Each three episodes tells a little story in a trilogy.
[ 00:29:16:00 ] - [ 00:29:17:00 ]
And so that's what I wanted.
[ 00:29:17:00 ] - [ 00:29:21:00 ]
I enjoyed the first trilogy so much that I was like,
[ 00:29:21:00 ] - [ 00:29:24:00 ]
I want to watch them in batches of three from now on.
[ 00:29:24:00 ] - [ 00:29:28:00 ]
So I did watch the first one, but I have not watched the second one.
[ 00:29:28:00 ] - [ 00:29:30:00 ]
Not to spoil anything, not to say anything.
[ 00:29:30:00 ] - [ 00:29:32:00 ]
I didn't know that they were in little trilogies.
[ 00:29:32:00 ] - [ 00:29:33:00 ]
I didn't know that at all.
[ 00:29:33:00 ] - [ 00:29:38:00 ]
I believe, if I remember right, it's a different director for the three.
[ 00:29:38:00 ] - [ 00:29:40:00 ]
And then also it may be a different writer.
[ 00:29:40:00 ] - [ 00:29:41:00 ]
I don't know.
[ 00:29:41:00 ] - [ 00:29:43:00 ]
I just remember them being like, they're in threes,
[ 00:29:43:00 ] - [ 00:29:47:00 ]
and you're going to see four different looks of him in three episode arcs.
[ 00:29:47:00 ] - [ 00:29:49:00 ]
So I have not watched the second one.
[ 00:29:49:00 ] - [ 00:29:50:00 ]
So let me ask you a simple.
[ 00:29:50:00 ] - [ 00:29:51:00 ]
[ 00:29:51:00 ] - [ 00:29:54:00 ]
I was going to say, tell me your thoughts on,
[ 00:29:54:00 ] - [ 00:29:58:00 ]
was the second trilogy better than the first?
[ 00:29:58:00 ] - [ 00:30:00:00 ]
Do you really want me to say?
[ 00:30:00:00 ] - [ 00:30:01:00 ]
Do you really?
[ 00:30:01:00 ] - [ 00:30:04:00 ]
I can not spoil plot.
[ 00:30:04:00 ] - [ 00:30:06:00 ]
But give you impression?
[ 00:30:06:00 ] - [ 00:30:11:00 ]
No, just say I enjoyed the second trilogy better than the first,
[ 00:30:11:00 ] - [ 00:30:14:00 ]
or the first trilogy better than the second.
[ 00:30:14:00 ] - [ 00:30:17:00 ]
The second trilogy is the show.
[ 00:30:17:00 ] - [ 00:30:19:00 ]
That's the way the show is meant to be.
[ 00:30:19:00 ] - [ 00:30:20:00 ]
Now I'm getting it.
[ 00:30:20:00 ] - [ 00:30:22:00 ]
Now I'm definitely going to probably plop down tomorrow night probably
[ 00:30:22:00 ] - [ 00:30:23:00 ]
and watch these things.
[ 00:30:23:00 ] - [ 00:30:28:00 ]
I mean, it's like the first, again, no, these are little mini trilogies.
[ 00:30:28:00 ] - [ 00:30:30:00 ]
The first trilogy was good.
[ 00:30:30:00 ] - [ 00:30:31:00 ]
[ 00:30:31:00 ] - [ 00:30:32:00 ]
That's what I thought the show was.
[ 00:30:32:00 ] - [ 00:30:33:00 ]
I thought it was beyond good.
[ 00:30:33:00 ] - [ 00:30:35:00 ]
I really felt.
[ 00:30:35:00 ] - [ 00:30:36:00 ]
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
[ 00:30:36:00 ] - [ 00:30:38:00 ]
I'm not saying, yeah, it was good.
[ 00:30:38:00 ] - [ 00:30:39:00 ]
It was good.
[ 00:30:39:00 ] - [ 00:30:40:00 ]
That's what I thought the show was going to be.
[ 00:30:40:00 ] - [ 00:30:45:00 ]
The second trilogy, now that I know that was a trilogy, that's the show.
[ 00:30:45:00 ] - [ 00:30:46:00 ]
That's the show.
[ 00:30:46:00 ] - [ 00:30:47:00 ]
That's the show, man.
[ 00:30:47:00 ] - [ 00:30:49:00 ]
That's the show.
[ 00:30:49:00 ] - [ 00:31:01:00 ]
I still contend to this day Rogue One
is the best.
[ 00:31:01:00 ] - [ 00:31:03:00 ]
This most sleeper Star Wars movie ever.
[ 00:31:04:00 ] - [ 00:31:05:00 ]
And I don't know anyone.
[ 00:31:05:00 ] - [ 00:31:07:00 ]
I don't know anyone who disagrees with that.
[ 00:31:07:00 ] - [ 00:31:08:00 ]
[ 00:31:08:00 ] - [ 00:31:08:00 ]
[ 00:31:08:00 ] - [ 00:31:09:00 ]
It was so good.
[ 00:31:10:00 ] - [ 00:31:11:00 ]
I think also I think so.
[ 00:31:11:00 ] - [ 00:31:12:00 ]
There was better than people give a credit for.
[ 00:31:12:00 ] - [ 00:31:15:00 ]
I think you're going to look back on it and like, we're going to have to disagree.
[ 00:31:16:00 ] - [ 00:31:16:00 ]
[ 00:31:16:00 ] - [ 00:31:20:00 ]
I know there's a lot of people that, but, but Rogue One
was just so, so good as a
[ 00:31:20:00 ] - [ 00:31:22:00 ]
movie and again, doesn't have a Skywalker.
[ 00:31:23:00 ] - [ 00:31:25:00 ]
[ 00:31:25:00 ] - [ 00:31:33:00 ]
suffered from being the first, uh, you know, non trilogy movie.
[ 00:31:34:00 ] - [ 00:31:34:00 ]
[ 00:31:34:00 ] - [ 00:31:36:00 ]
Did you watch battle of Indore?
[ 00:31:36:00 ] - [ 00:31:39:00 ]
My friend, Starcruiser, crush, crush the Ewoks
[ 00:31:41:00 ] - [ 00:31:43:00 ]
Starcruiser, crush, crush.
[ 00:31:44:00 ] - [ 00:31:45:00 ]
You don't remember that?
[ 00:31:45:00 ] - [ 00:31:47:00 ]
[ 00:31:47:00 ] - [ 00:31:48:00 ]
Are you, I'm sorry.
[ 00:31:48:00 ] - [ 00:31:51:00 ]
Are you, are you saying that Wilford Brimley was not one of the very first
[ 00:31:51:00 ] - [ 00:31:53:00 ]
non Skywalker movies that was excellent?
[ 00:31:53:00 ] - [ 00:31:53:00 ]
You know a lot about that.
[ 00:31:53:00 ] - [ 00:31:54:00 ]
What is this now?
[ 00:31:54:00 ] - [ 00:31:55:00 ]
This is a TV movie.
[ 00:31:55:00 ] - [ 00:31:56:00 ]
[ 00:31:56:00 ] - [ 00:31:57:00 ]
Oh my gosh.
[ 00:31:57:00 ] - [ 00:32:00:00 ]
John, do you really battle of Indore in the, I know all about the holiday special.
[ 00:32:00:00 ] - [ 00:32:01:00 ]
I don't, I don't remember.
[ 00:32:01:00 ] - [ 00:32:02:00 ]
[ 00:32:02:00 ] - [ 00:32:03:00 ]
So I'm in memory of something vague.
[ 00:32:04:00 ] - [ 00:32:06:00 ]
I'm literally on my phone ordering you DVDs right now.
[ 00:32:06:00 ] - [ 00:32:06:00 ]
[ 00:32:06:00 ] - [ 00:32:12:00 ]
So, so, so there was two Ewok
movies that came out in the eighties that, um, that
[ 00:32:12:00 ] - [ 00:32:14:00 ]
dealt with nothing to do with Skywalker's.
[ 00:32:15:00 ] - [ 00:32:16:00 ]
Um, they're all about Ewoks
[ 00:32:16:00 ] - [ 00:32:20:00 ]
[ 00:32:20:00 ] - [ 00:32:20:00 ]
[ 00:32:20:00 ] - [ 00:32:22:00 ]
And, uh, yeah.
[ 00:32:22:00 ] - [ 00:32:25:00 ]
And he, uh, and he would go around and I think he was the one in the movie, if I'm
[ 00:32:25:00 ] - [ 00:32:29:00 ]
not mistaken, but yeah, this little girl that looks, I don't, it wasn't Drew Barrymore,
[ 00:32:29:00 ] - [ 00:32:30:00 ]
but she looks very much like Drew Barrymore.
[ 00:32:30:00 ] - [ 00:32:31:00 ]
She was a little, she's probably like seven or eight.
[ 00:32:32:00 ] - [ 00:32:34:00 ]
Her parents, and this is, it's pretty dark at the beginning.
[ 00:32:34:00 ] - [ 00:32:38:00 ]
Her parents get killed by these like beast things and she's kind of like on her own
[ 00:32:38:00 ] - [ 00:32:42:00 ]
and, and the Ewok
finds her and like, you know, helps her out and like all this stuff.
[ 00:32:42:00 ] - [ 00:32:45:00 ]
It was, it, for, for me as a kid, it was pretty impressionable.
[ 00:32:45:00 ] - [ 00:32:46:00 ]
I really enjoyed it.
[ 00:32:46:00 ] - [ 00:32:48:00 ]
[ 00:32:48:00 ] - [ 00:32:48:00 ]
[ 00:32:48:00 ] - [ 00:32:50:00 ]
Cause you're quoting it now, 40 years later.
[ 00:32:50:00 ] - [ 00:32:50:00 ]
[ 00:32:50:00 ] - [ 00:32:53:00 ]
Well, me and a good buddy used to have a thing where it'd be like, Star
[ 00:32:53:00 ] - [ 00:32:57:00 ]
Cruiser, cause that's what he says is like, he's like directing like that.
[ 00:32:57:00 ] - [ 00:33:00:00 ]
So, and then of course the great Wilford Brivley was in it.
[ 00:33:00:00 ] - [ 00:33:01:00 ]
So, uh, yeah.
[ 00:33:01:00 ] - [ 00:33:03:00 ]
So I, yeah, I'll, I'll shoot you some links to these, these movies.
[ 00:33:03:00 ] - [ 00:33:07:00 ]
And if you watch them out of Canon order, I won't get mad, John, because they're good.
[ 00:33:07:00 ] - [ 00:33:07:00 ]
[ 00:33:08:00 ] - [ 00:33:08:00 ]
[ 00:33:08:00 ] - [ 00:33:11:00 ]
So we're just gonna, we're just gonna pull out of that little cul-de-sac and go
[ 00:33:11:00 ] - [ 00:33:16:00 ]
[ 00:33:16:00 ] - [ 00:33:19:00 ]
big budget non trilogy Star Wars?
[ 00:33:20:00 ] - [ 00:33:20:00 ]
[ 00:33:20:00 ] - [ 00:33:23:00 ]
I would say, I would say big budget cause I, cause these guys were like, I don't, I
[ 00:33:23:00 ] - [ 00:33:26:00 ]
think that they came out, one of them may have come out in the movie theater, but it
[ 00:33:26:00 ] - [ 00:33:29:00 ]
also may have been like a directed tape, try to deal or something, you know?
[ 00:33:30:00 ] - [ 00:33:36:00 ]
And, and a lot of people, including me, I was not overly impressed with Rogue One
[ 00:33:36:00 ] - [ 00:33:39:00 ]
I, I, and it is still on some viewing.
[ 00:33:39:00 ] - [ 00:33:39:00 ]
[ 00:33:39:00 ] - [ 00:33:46:00 ]
No, I thought it was derivative and, um, it's like, what, yeah, we'll get to that
[ 00:33:46:00 ] - [ 00:33:50:00 ]
point at some, at some point, but, um, that's too, that sound that we just heard.
[ 00:33:50:00 ] - [ 00:33:53:00 ]
It's 2,998 people that listen to our podcast.
[ 00:33:53:00 ] - [ 00:33:54:00 ]
Just cut it off.
[ 00:33:54:00 ] - [ 00:33:56:00 ]
I think, I think they were just like, no, nope.
[ 00:33:56:00 ] - [ 00:33:57:00 ]
You know what?
[ 00:33:57:00 ] - [ 00:33:58:00 ]
If you're still left, you're my guy.
[ 00:33:58:00 ] - [ 00:33:59:00 ]
You're my guy.
[ 00:33:59:00 ] - [ 00:34:01:00 ]
You, me, simpatico.
[ 00:34:01:00 ] - [ 00:34:02:00 ]
[ 00:34:02:00 ] - [ 00:34:06:00 ]
Uh, yes, I, I, I'm excited for when we get to Rogue One
because that's going to be
[ 00:34:06:00 ] - [ 00:34:07:00 ]
lovely one podcast.
[ 00:34:07:00 ] - [ 00:34:09:00 ]
That'll be, that'll be a good, a good time.
[ 00:34:09:00 ] - [ 00:34:14:00 ]
[ 00:34:14:00 ] - [ 00:34:15:00 ]
and we'll get there, you know, at some point.
[ 00:34:16:00 ] - [ 00:34:19:00 ]
Um, She-Hulkin, have you been She-Hulkin?
[ 00:34:19:00 ] - [ 00:34:21:00 ]
Don't give away the last episode if you've already watched it.
[ 00:34:21:00 ] - [ 00:34:22:00 ]
I've been staying with it.
[ 00:34:22:00 ] - [ 00:34:27:00 ]
That's exactly what I was going to say is Twitter today is lit up with this last
[ 00:34:27:00 ] - [ 00:34:27:00 ]
[ 00:34:27:00 ] - [ 00:34:30:00 ]
I can't, I can't, I can't even get on Twitter anymore because like, all right,
[ 00:34:30:00 ] - [ 00:34:34:00 ]
I went to, um, it wasn't Kotaku, I think it was Polygon or one of the video game
[ 00:34:34:00 ] - [ 00:34:34:00 ]
[ 00:34:35:00 ] - [ 00:34:39:00 ]
And it literally like the two top articles are like, we won't tell you there's
[ 00:34:39:00 ] - [ 00:34:41:00 ]
spoilers ahead, but then in the titles, they give away stuff.
[ 00:34:41:00 ] - [ 00:34:43:00 ]
And I'm like, guys, you gotta quit doing it.
[ 00:34:43:00 ] - [ 00:34:44:00 ]
This is like getting stupid.
[ 00:34:44:00 ] - [ 00:34:48:00 ]
Like, I understand that you watch it within the first 30 minutes, but I'm no
[ 00:34:48:00 ] - [ 00:34:52:00 ]
longer reading your website because I know that like, I can't even do it within
[ 00:34:52:00 ] - [ 00:34:53:00 ]
the first two hours of it being released.
[ 00:34:53:00 ] - [ 00:34:54:00 ]
You know what I mean?
[ 00:34:54:00 ] - [ 00:34:56:00 ]
That's an odd, yeah, that's an odd mix, isn't it?
[ 00:34:56:00 ] - [ 00:34:58:00 ]
They, they have, there's the pressure to be first.
[ 00:34:59:00 ] - [ 00:34:59:00 ]
[ 00:34:59:00 ] - [ 00:35:05:00 ]
And if you don't do it properly, yeah, I'm just not, I'm going to avoid your
[ 00:35:05:00 ] - [ 00:35:05:00 ]
[ 00:35:05:00 ] - [ 00:35:06:00 ]
So what did you gain?
[ 00:35:06:00 ] - [ 00:35:08:00 ]
I've been hearing mute words on Twitter all the time.
[ 00:35:08:00 ] - [ 00:35:08:00 ]
[ 00:35:08:00 ] - [ 00:35:10:00 ]
I mean, it's just like, I just, I can't, I don't want to see.
[ 00:35:10:00 ] - [ 00:35:14:00 ]
Um, have you been keeping up with House of Dragons and Lord of the Rings?
[ 00:35:15:00 ] - [ 00:35:15:00 ]
[ 00:35:15:00 ] - [ 00:35:16:00 ]
[ 00:35:16:00 ] - [ 00:35:16:00 ]
[ 00:35:16:00 ] - [ 00:35:18:00 ]
So, so I, yeah.
[ 00:35:18:00 ] - [ 00:35:18:00 ]
[ 00:35:18:00 ] - [ 00:35:19:00 ]
So both of them, I kind of quit.
[ 00:35:19:00 ] - [ 00:35:19:00 ]
[ 00:35:19:00 ] - [ 00:35:20:00 ]
[ 00:35:20:00 ] - [ 00:35:21:00 ]
We always were going to go back.
[ 00:35:21:00 ] - [ 00:35:22:00 ]
Why do you stop watching stuff?
[ 00:35:22:00 ] - [ 00:35:23:00 ]
Well, I got one.
[ 00:35:23:00 ] - [ 00:35:24:00 ]
Stop, stop, stop, stop.
[ 00:35:24:00 ] - [ 00:35:25:00 ]
I had other stuff to watch.
[ 00:35:25:00 ] - [ 00:35:30:00 ]
It was just like, um, I, I, I did not go beyond episode three.
[ 00:35:30:00 ] - [ 00:35:31:00 ]
Actually it's the same thing with Andorra.
[ 00:35:31:00 ] - [ 00:35:32:00 ]
I didn't think about it.
[ 00:35:32:00 ] - [ 00:35:35:00 ]
I did not go, uh, beyond episode three on either of those two series.
[ 00:35:35:00 ] - [ 00:35:39:00 ]
Um, I have to admit The Lord of the Rings and I love the books and Game of
[ 00:35:39:00 ] - [ 00:35:42:00 ]
Thrones, I'm sorry, not Lord of the Rings, but the, um, the House of Dragons.
[ 00:35:42:00 ] - [ 00:35:45:00 ]
I loved the, the original books.
[ 00:35:45:00 ] - [ 00:35:48:00 ]
And then also the actual Game of Thrones show, even the last season, I kind of
[ 00:35:48:00 ] - [ 00:35:51:00 ]
liked, um, but man, House of Dragons was, it was slow to me.
[ 00:35:51:00 ] - [ 00:35:53:00 ]
It was just like, I don't know.
[ 00:35:53:00 ] - [ 00:35:54:00 ]
I was like, I'll watch this at some point.
[ 00:35:54:00 ] - [ 00:35:57:00 ]
Well, that's because you stopped right as it hit the gas.
[ 00:35:57:00 ] - [ 00:35:58:00 ]
That's exactly what I was about to say.
[ 00:35:58:00 ] - [ 00:35:58:00 ]
Stop doing that.
[ 00:35:58:00 ] - [ 00:35:59:00 ]
[ 00:35:59:00 ] - [ 00:36:01:00 ]
I talked to somebody about that and Lord of the Rings.
[ 00:36:01:00 ] - [ 00:36:01:00 ]
[ 00:36:01:00 ] - [ 00:36:01:00 ]
[ 00:36:01:00 ] - [ 00:36:01:00 ]
[ 00:36:01:00 ] - [ 00:36:01:00 ]
[ 00:36:01:00 ] - [ 00:36:02:00 ]
[ 00:36:02:00 ] - [ 00:36:02:00 ]
[ 00:36:02:00 ] - [ 00:36:02:00 ]
[ 00:36:02:00 ] - [ 00:36:02:00 ]
[ 00:36:02:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:03:00 ]
[ 00:36:03:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:04:00 ]
[ 00:36:04:00 ] - [ 00:36:05:00 ]
[ 00:36:05:00 ] - [ 00:36:05:00 ]
[ 00:36:05:00 ] - [ 00:36:05:00 ]
[ 00:36:05:00 ] - [ 00:36:05:00 ]
[ 00:36:06:00 ] - [ 00:36:08:00 ]
No, the fourth episode is where they pick up. That's where they get good.
[ 00:36:09:00 ] - [ 00:36:20:00 ]
I'm like, all right. Do you do you again? Do you want to? This is not giving away plot details, but it is giving away broad brush strokes. Is that is that a problem?
[ 00:36:21:00 ] - [ 00:36:33:00 ]
Um, for you? Yeah, only because I can't even ask the question. Yeah, it's not it's not a problem about a thing for me, but I also want this podcast to not spoil something that's relatively.
[ 00:36:33:00 ] - [ 00:36:40:00 ]
Okay, see, I read about I read about this right before the episode where it happened, and it wasn't I didn't get on Polygon like where you.
[ 00:36:41:00 ] - [ 00:36:59:00 ]
All right. Okay, I'll just say two words. Okay. Time jump. Are you aware of that? Yeah, I was aware that there were multiple actors playing the same character. So I figured. Okay, well, there you go. All right. So I didn't know. Yeah, everything changes. Everything shifts. Bit play. My God.
[ 00:36:59:00 ] - [ 00:37:17:00 ]
Yeah, I need to I need to I need to go back and watch it. I agree. And likewise, I've actually been keeping up with She Hulk every week, though. Like I've it's it's the it's the it's the weirdest like, yeah, I love She Hulk to me is like, it was like there were certain runs of comics growing up that had nothing to do with a major plot line.
[ 00:37:17:00 ] - [ 00:37:35:00 ]
It was just stupidly fun stuff. And that's what She Hulk is. It is so good. It's so good at capturing that, in my opinion. It was like the spider pig. No, well, that was that was that was a whole different beast. That's a whole that that is a completely different. No, no, I'm just saying like, that's a completely different like, like that.
[ 00:37:35:00 ] - [ 00:38:01:00 ]
It's having fun with it. That's what it is. Okay, I agree with that. I totally agree with that. And then, um, what was the Nighthawk one? The Nighthawk? Sorry, not the Nighthawk, but the Hawkeye, the Christmas series. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I think they just called Hawkeye if I remember right. Yes, that was it. That was another one that was just fun. It was just it was just a fun thing to watch. And like, yeah, maybe a person story a little bit. I'm not worried about person story because this is just fun stuff that I enjoy.
[ 00:38:01:00 ] - [ 00:38:24:00 ]
That's all I've really watched lately. That's well, to keep going with that. That's why the a lot of the criticism I saw of She Hulk was just overblown. I mean, come on, guys, just have fun with it. Why are you digging in on this? This meaningless crap? Just enjoy. And you so are you up to date with She Hulk? Did we cover that already?
[ 00:38:24:00 ] - [ 00:38:46:00 ]
I did not watch the last episode, which I believe came out last night or this morning. Oh, okay. No, no. So you watched last week. You watched. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I caught up. I caught up last week. Yeah, that was great. It was. It was really good. I enjoyed it. Yeah. I hated that his show was was dropped by Netflix. I love that he's been, you know, he's been brought back. We saw him in No Way Home. That was great. Yep.
[ 00:38:46:00 ] - [ 00:39:03:00 ]
Yeah, no, it's it's yeah, it's it's. Yeah, I don't want to I don't want to give too much away for anybody that hasn't watched it. But but if there was one character from I'm going to try to be vague here. One character from that group of characters that I would love to have seen back, it was him by far. Yeah, by far, by far.
[ 00:39:03:00 ] - [ 00:39:32:00 ]
I'm going to I'm going to give our listeners whiplash because there was something I want to say earlier. We didn't get to it. You're not caught up on the Rings of Power. I'm I'm upset for but there's one thing I want to say about that. Okay. Because it's been going through my head. I'm enjoying that show. Okay. Okay. Okay. I don't enjoy House of Dragon. House of Dragon is not a fun watch because House of Dragon is like who's about to get stabbed in the neck.
[ 00:39:33:00 ] - [ 00:39:57:00 ]
Yeah. Right. Rings of Power is is is is enjoy. It's it's a it's a it's fun. Even when bad things are happening. I'm trying to remember. It's still fun. It's got such a different vibe to it because that's the word we use now. Such a different vibe that it's it's an enjoyable watch versus the the the cringe watch of House of Dragons. That makes sense. Yes. I know. I know exactly what you mean by that. Exactly what you mean by that.
[ 00:39:57:00 ] - [ 00:40:27:00 ]
Yeah. And I wouldn't say there's any anxiety when I watch House of Dragons but I'm always just kind of like oh here we go. Like you know what I mean? Like it's just like all right here's here's where it's about to start. You know like I get invested in these characters Eric. But then again I'm the one actually watching the shows. That is true. Where you just hit stop and you go about your life. I really felt like The Lord of the Rings was slower almost than than House of Dragons though. Like I like I was just like all right I understand that we've got to build these characters up but like I didn't. You always have to allow for that. Yeah. Yeah. But I mean I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I
[ 00:40:27:00 ] - [ 00:40:54:00 ]
But three episodes in on a ten. People people were complaining with what was it. I can't say that because you're not calling up. But anyway they were complaining about how certain characters are suddenly back in the main storyline when they should not have been. You know they they yeah. I won't go more into that. But it definitely picks up. OK. Yeah. I've heard three people who I respect. One of them is you and their TV and they're you know they're watching and stuff. Yeah.
[ 00:40:54:00 ] - [ 00:41:05:00 ]
Well you mentioned something earlier to me tonight. You were going to look something up on an app. What what were you talking about. So yeah just so we're clear I am I'm impressed with you.
[ 00:41:05:00 ] - [ 00:41:07:00 ]
[ 00:41:35:00 ] - [ 00:41:37:00 ]
Yeah, but this sounds like it'd be right up her alley though.
[ 00:41:37:00 ] - [ 00:41:40:00 ]
This is the modern take on that. It's called TV Time.
[ 00:41:40:00 ] - [ 00:41:41:00 ]
[ 00:41:41:00 ] - [ 00:41:44:00 ]
Available on Android. I'm assuming it's available on both platforms. It's a solid app.
[ 00:41:44:00 ] - [ 00:41:45:00 ]
Sure, probably. You just have to look it up.
[ 00:41:45:00 ] - [ 00:41:50:00 ]
And you just tell it, I'm watching this show, I'm watching this show, I'm watching this show, and it lets you know.
[ 00:41:50:00 ] - [ 00:41:53:00 ]
Does it ask you for, like, your opinion? Or is it just, I want to watch this.
[ 00:41:53:00 ] - [ 00:42:00:00 ]
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. It goes into what did you think, you pick your emotion, how it makes you feel.
[ 00:42:00:00 ] - [ 00:42:01:00 ]
Oh, I would love to see your emotion.
[ 00:42:01:00 ] - [ 00:42:10:00 ]
I do that every now and then. That's just kind of for fun. But certainly when I sit down, because I don't remember what comes out when.
[ 00:42:10:00 ] - [ 00:42:18:00 ]
There's too many episodes, too many shows, and I just go to the watch next section and for example, it tells me right now.
[ 00:42:18:00 ] - [ 00:42:20:00 ]
Oh, it suggests. Okay, cool. That's kind of cool.
[ 00:42:20:00 ] - [ 00:42:22:00 ]
Well, it's tracking. You're telling it which shows you're watching.
[ 00:42:22:00 ] - [ 00:42:28:00 ]
So it tells me I've got a She-Hulk to watch and I've been diving into Abbott Elementary lately.
[ 00:42:28:00 ] - [ 00:42:30:00 ]
I've heard that was really funny.
[ 00:42:30:00 ] - [ 00:42:34:00 ]
Yeah, yeah. It's the same style as Parks and Rec.
[ 00:42:34:00 ] - [ 00:42:37:00 ]
I don't know if it's the same people. Maybe the same people. Feels like the same kind of show.
[ 00:42:37:00 ] - [ 00:42:38:00 ]
I don't know.
[ 00:42:38:00 ] - [ 00:42:39:00 ]
[ 00:42:39:00 ] - [ 00:42:46:00 ]
So anyway, yeah, and shows that I've told it, like Lock and Key. I have not started season three yet. It's right there.
[ 00:42:46:00 ] - [ 00:42:50:00 ]
Oh my god, it's up to season three already? Geez. I missed season two completely.
[ 00:42:50:00 ] - [ 00:42:52:00 ]
, I haven't started season three yet.
[ 00:42:52:00 ] - [ 00:42:54:00 ]
I haven't started either.
[ 00:42:54:00 ] - [ 00:43:01:00 ]
I've got a lot of TV to watch. It feels like everything just hit all at once and then now I'm watching baseball so much with October and everything.
[ 00:43:01:00 ] - [ 00:43:04:00 ]
Well, yeah, that's the thing. We're in high sports season right now.
[ 00:43:04:00 ] - [ 00:43:10:00 ]
Yeah. College football is on Saturdays. NFL is on Sundays. Baseball all through the week.
[ 00:43:10:00 ] - [ 00:43:13:00 ]
NFL is on Sunday, Monday, Thursday.
[ 00:43:13:00 ] - [ 00:43:16:00 ]
It's on right now. It's quite literally on right now.
[ 00:43:16:00 ] - [ 00:43:18:00 ]
Oh yeah, I can't wait to go watch that game.
[ 00:43:18:00 ] - [ 00:43:22:00 ]
Yeah, yeah. Commanders versus, who is it? Bears?
[ 00:43:22:00 ] - [ 00:43:23:00 ]
[ 00:43:23:00 ] - [ 00:43:28:00 ]
Although we say that as Falcons fans, so we really don't have a leg to stand on.
[ 00:43:28:00 ] - [ 00:43:30:00 ]
[ 00:43:30:00 ] - [ 00:43:41:00 ]
So I watched She-Hulk and then I actually went back and watched, after Scandi flick came out, I went back and watched one of the Covey, which one was it? The Grand Tour.
[ 00:43:41:00 ] - [ 00:43:48:00 ]
Not the one, not Loch Ness. No, it was Loch Ness. I watched Loch Ness, not the one.
[ 00:43:48:00 ] - [ 00:43:51:00 ]
The boat one. I did watch the boat one.
[ 00:43:51:00 ] - [ 00:43:56:00 ]
The boat one? Yeah, where they're captaining Top Gear. Well, it's not Top Gear.
[ 00:43:56:00 ] - [ 00:44:00:00 ]
Oh, through, is that Vietnam or Thailand?
[ 00:44:00:00 ] - [ 00:44:02:00 ]
Yeah, it's Vietnam, I think. I think it was Vietnam.
[ 00:44:02:00 ] - [ 00:44:04:00 ]
Yeah, because it was a gunboat.
[ 00:44:04:00 ] - [ 00:44:06:00 ]
Yeah, they talk about Canadian also.
[ 00:44:06:00 ] - [ 00:44:09:00 ]
Yeah, so I went back and watched that.
[ 00:44:09:00 ] - [ 00:44:12:00 ]
I've watched those so many times. Yeah, I can't do it again.
[ 00:44:12:00 ] - [ 00:44:18:00 ]
Well, that's the thing. I thought about it. I didn't go back and re-watch any of the ones that came out during COVID, so that's why I was like, oh yeah, I need to go back and re-watch this.
[ 00:44:18:00 ] - [ 00:44:23:00 ]
Oh yeah. They're so spaced out now that I went back and filled some time.
[ 00:44:23:00 ] - [ 00:44:28:00 ]
Yeah, I think that, I wish those guys had more coming out. A lot more.
[ 00:44:28:00 ] - [ 00:44:34:00 ]
It's so much. You're talking about, it feels like a movie. It's so much goes into one episode now.
[ 00:44:34:00 ] - [ 00:44:43:00 ]
It does. It really does. Yeah, I understand. And plus too, Amazon made such a financial bet on them that I'm sure they're just kind of like, yeah, we're doing them every now and then.
[ 00:44:43:00 ] - [ 00:44:49:00 ]
We all come to an agreement on funding and all that kind of stuff. You know what I mean? And they've all got other stuff going on too.
[ 00:44:49:00 ] - [ 00:44:56:00 ]
Clarkson Farms is great. There should be a season two. Check your lap. See if season two is out yet. There should be a season two coming out for that sometime soon.
[ 00:44:56:00 ] - [ 00:45:00:00 ]
I don't know if I've put that in. I've been waiting on stuff like that, but that's the thing.
[ 00:45:00:00 ] - [ 00:45:07:00 ]
Here's a good point for the app. A good selling point for the app. Have you ever watched Avenue 5?
[ 00:45:07:00 ] - [ 00:45:12:00 ]
Oh, that sounds so familiar. Give me a synop- or give me that characterist.
[ 00:45:12:00 ] - [ 00:45:21:00 ]
Dr. House. I can't remember his name. Oh, yeah. He's the fake captain of a massive luxury cruise space ship.
[ 00:45:21:00 ] - [ 00:45:25:00 ]
We mentioned Josh Gad earlier. This is Josh Gad's other show too. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
[ 00:45:25:00 ] - [ 00:45:34:00 ]
I totally forgot about that show. I put that show in the app. Totally forgot about it. And it's back with season two.
[ 00:45:34:00 ] - [ 00:45:38:00 ]
How long have you been using this app? I'm like, holy crap. How long have you been using this app?
[ 00:45:38:00 ] - [ 00:45:43:00 ]
Maybe, but I may have- I loaded it. We need to load it. I gotcha. I gotcha.
[ 00:45:43:00 ] - [ 00:45:48:00 ]
And it was- That was a- that was a- that was a- speaking of COVID shows, that was the one that-
[ 00:45:48:00 ] - [ 00:45:52:00 ]
I think they started filming it and everything and it started to roll out right as COVID hit, right?
[ 00:45:52:00 ] - [ 00:45:56:00 ]
And then they were like, we can't all get back together. We can't do this again.
[ 00:45:56:00 ] - [ 00:45:58:00 ]
So they were like, oh, we'll just kind of do whatever we need to do.
[ 00:45:58:00 ] - [ 00:46:03:00 ]
Maybe that was the impetus for Gad's 80s shows. He was like, well, can't do Avenue 5.
[ 00:46:03:00 ] - [ 00:46:05:00 ]
We might as well do something else, you know?
[ 00:46:06:00 ] - [ 00:46:09:00 ]
I just watched the first episode
[ 00:46:09:00 ] - [ 00:46:12:00 ]
because it's the only one that's come out for season two.
[ 00:46:12:00 ] - [ 00:46:13:00 ]
I don't know why I'm watching that show.
[ 00:46:13:00 ] - [ 00:46:16:00 ]
I don't really care for it. I don't think it's all that funny.
[ 00:46:17:00 ] - [ 00:46:19:00 ]
So I don't recommend it, but yeah, it came up in the app,
[ 00:46:19:00 ] - [ 00:46:21:00 ]
so I watched it. Oh, OK, cool.
[ 00:46:22:00 ] - [ 00:46:23:00 ]
So what is it? So right now, pull up in the app
[ 00:46:23:00 ] - [ 00:46:25:00 ]
and tell me what it's suggesting for you
[ 00:46:25:00 ] - [ 00:46:26:00 ]
because I know how much TV you watch.
[ 00:46:26:00 ] - [ 00:46:28:00 ]
I mean, I know what you're watching and all that kind of stuff.
[ 00:46:28:00 ] - [ 00:46:28:00 ]
What does it say? What is it?
[ 00:46:28:00 ] - [ 00:46:30:00 ]
Give me three suggestions that it's saying for you.
[ 00:46:30:00 ] - [ 00:46:32:00 ]
It sounds like we're still in this app.
[ 00:46:32:00 ] - [ 00:46:32:00 ]
We are not really people.
[ 00:46:32:00 ] - [ 00:46:35:00 ]
I'm just amazed by this app. Seriously.
[ 00:46:35:00 ] - [ 00:46:38:00 ]
Yeah, I learned about it tonight and now like this is this is kind of neat.
[ 00:46:38:00 ] - [ 00:46:40:00 ]
I don't know. I don't know where the suggestions are.
[ 00:46:40:00 ] - [ 00:46:44:00 ]
These are all shows that I have told it I am watching and it has is telling me,
[ 00:46:44:00 ] - [ 00:46:48:00 ]
well, you haven't started like I haven't started Russian Doll season two yet.
[ 00:46:50:00 ] - [ 00:46:52:00 ]
The Sandman, I haven't started that one yet.
[ 00:46:52:00 ] - [ 00:46:54:00 ]
Yeah, I am Groot. I haven't started that one yet.
[ 00:46:56:00 ] - [ 00:46:59:00 ]
And then shows that I want to watch at some point, like for all mankind,
[ 00:46:59:00 ] - [ 00:47:00:00 ]
which is supposed to be amazing.
[ 00:47:00:00 ] - [ 00:47:03:00 ]
It is. I've heard so many people tell me that show is like, yeah,
[ 00:47:03:00 ] - [ 00:47:06:00 ]
I don't have Apple TV. Yeah, I don't have Apple TV.
[ 00:47:06:00 ] - [ 00:47:09:00 ]
So I'm just that's in there for for future.
[ 00:47:10:00 ] - [ 00:47:11:00 ]
Same with Severance.
[ 00:47:11:00 ] - [ 00:47:13:00 ]
People say great things about that one.
[ 00:47:13:00 ] - [ 00:47:16:00 ]
[ 00:47:16:00 ] - [ 00:47:19:00 ]
[ 00:47:20:00 ] - [ 00:47:23:00 ]
Three. And then I was just kind of like, oh, no.
[ 00:47:23:00 ] - [ 00:47:26:00 ]
It's like I don't know. I just expected to be a little bit better.
[ 00:47:26:00 ] - [ 00:47:27:00 ]
I'll just go like, OK.
[ 00:47:27:00 ] - [ 00:47:29:00 ]
It's a very it's a very slow process.
[ 00:47:29:00 ] - [ 00:47:31:00 ]
You know, like I was just like, all right, we move on.
[ 00:47:31:00 ] - [ 00:47:33:00 ]
You you have just such a short leash.
[ 00:47:34:00 ] - [ 00:47:35:00 ]
It's not going to breathe a little bit.
[ 00:47:35:00 ] - [ 00:47:40:00 ]
I know. But like you have most most shows are seven episodes,
[ 00:47:40:00 ] - [ 00:47:42:00 ]
10 episodes, 12 episodes, something like that.
[ 00:47:42:00 ] - [ 00:47:44:00 ]
You have three episodes to hook me.
[ 00:47:44:00 ] - [ 00:47:47:00 ]
If you didn't hook me, then I don't know that I'm going to enjoy it.
[ 00:47:47:00 ] - [ 00:47:49:00 ]
You're starting. Well, that's fine.
[ 00:47:49:00 ] - [ 00:47:50:00 ]
And it's a valid point.
[ 00:47:50:00 ] - [ 00:47:52:00 ]
But it is you're starting a brand new.
[ 00:47:52:00 ] - [ 00:47:54:00 ]
You got to lay some groundwork.
[ 00:47:54:00 ] - [ 00:47:57:00 ]
Episode one gets you your story basics.
[ 00:47:57:00 ] - [ 00:48:00:00 ]
Episode two gets you your really who are the characters.
[ 00:48:00:00 ] - [ 00:48:02:00 ]
Episode three gets you.
[ 00:48:02:00 ] - [ 00:48:03:00 ]
It allows you to marinate on that.
[ 00:48:03:00 ] - [ 00:48:05:00 ]
All that stuff that you've already told.
[ 00:48:05:00 ] - [ 00:48:06:00 ]
You know what I mean?
[ 00:48:06:00 ] - [ 00:48:08:00 ]
But then when you get to four, you better blow me away.
[ 00:48:08:00 ] - [ 00:48:10:00 ]
Like, like, I want to be like, OK, I do like this show.
[ 00:48:10:00 ] - [ 00:48:12:00 ]
And you you don't get to four. You just quit at three.
[ 00:48:12:00 ] - [ 00:48:14:00 ]
Well, I'm just saying, yeah, three is three is your deciding point.
[ 00:48:14:00 ] - [ 00:48:15:00 ]
Or whether I do. OK, fair enough.
[ 00:48:15:00 ] - [ 00:48:18:00 ]
I would go watch episode four of every series that I've stopped.
[ 00:48:18:00 ] - [ 00:48:21:00 ]
You're the guy you walk out on the diving board
[ 00:48:21:00 ] - [ 00:48:24:00 ]
and you start bouncing up and down and then you just stop and walk off.
[ 00:48:24:00 ] - [ 00:48:26:00 ]
No, no, I dive in. I dive in.
[ 00:48:26:00 ] - [ 00:48:27:00 ]
[ 00:48:27:00 ] - [ 00:48:29:00 ]
Diving in is episodes four, five and six.
[ 00:48:29:00 ] - [ 00:48:31:00 ]
No diving in is episodes two to three.
[ 00:48:31:00 ] - [ 00:48:33:00 ]
I mean, it's not that's no.
[ 00:48:33:00 ] - [ 00:48:34:00 ]
God, that stretches.
[ 00:48:34:00 ] - [ 00:48:36:00 ]
Those torture this analogy.
[ 00:48:36:00 ] - [ 00:48:38:00 ]
So please do.
[ 00:48:38:00 ] - [ 00:48:40:00 ]
I do not walk off diving boards, John.
[ 00:48:40:00 ] - [ 00:48:43:00 ]
I want you to know that Eric Thompson is never back down from a diving board.
[ 00:48:43:00 ] - [ 00:48:44:00 ]
Even when I was like three.
[ 00:48:45:00 ] - [ 00:48:46:00 ]
Yeah, I don't know.
[ 00:48:46:00 ] - [ 00:48:48:00 ]
It's you know, I yeah.
[ 00:48:49:00 ] - [ 00:48:49:00 ]
All right. Fair enough.
[ 00:48:49:00 ] - [ 00:48:53:00 ]
And I tell you, maybe maybe that's my litmus test is I'm waiting
[ 00:48:53:00 ] - [ 00:48:55:00 ]
for other people to be like, you didn't make it past episode three.
[ 00:48:55:00 ] - [ 00:48:56:00 ]
Forge where it gets better.
[ 00:48:56:00 ] - [ 00:48:58:00 ]
And then I'm like, OK, now I'm really going to watch this.
[ 00:48:58:00 ] - [ 00:49:01:00 ]
Not really. That's fine as far as it goes.
[ 00:49:01:00 ] - [ 00:49:02:00 ]
But you can also put yourself out there.
[ 00:49:02:00 ] - [ 00:49:04:00 ]
It's it's OK to be hurt.
[ 00:49:04:00 ] - [ 00:49:06:00 ]
It happens to all of us.
[ 00:49:06:00 ] - [ 00:49:11:00 ]
I know. But sometimes sometimes like this is so I have I found myself
[ 00:49:11:00 ] - [ 00:49:13:00 ]
and I'm trying to think of a series that I could say this lost.
[ 00:49:14:00 ] - [ 00:49:15:00 ]
Lost one of my favorite shows of all time.
[ 00:49:15:00 ] - [ 00:49:18:00 ]
But there were some terrible episodes in the middle of some of those seasons.
[ 00:49:18:00 ] - [ 00:49:22:00 ]
And I think sometimes I actually like used to hate watch stuff
[ 00:49:23:00 ] - [ 00:49:24:00 ]
like I'm like, I got to sit through this.
[ 00:49:24:00 ] - [ 00:49:25:00 ]
I'm already on the journey.
[ 00:49:25:00 ] - [ 00:49:27:00 ]
I have to. And I don't ever want to feel that.
[ 00:49:27:00 ] - [ 00:49:29:00 ]
And especially with as much content as there is now.
[ 00:49:29:00 ] - [ 00:49:32:00 ]
I'm like in the middle school, my time that I have to watch it,
[ 00:49:32:00 ] - [ 00:49:34:00 ]
I'm just kind of like, no, I'm not going to hate watching.
[ 00:49:34:00 ] - [ 00:49:38:00 ]
I don't want to hate watch like, you know, I don't want to sit through something
[ 00:49:38:00 ] - [ 00:49:39:00 ]
just to say I've seen it all. You know what I mean?
[ 00:49:39:00 ] - [ 00:49:41:00 ]
It's like books with you, too. I'm the same way with books.
[ 00:49:41:00 ] - [ 00:49:45:00 ]
I'll get 100 pages in a book and I am totally fine setting the book back down.
[ 00:49:46:00 ] - [ 00:49:47:00 ]
And I'll tell people, hey, you want the book for it?
[ 00:49:47:00 ] - [ 00:49:51:00 ]
You know, it's yours because it's just I only have so much time
[ 00:49:51:00 ] - [ 00:49:54:00 ]
to be able to do stuff that I just I don't want to.
[ 00:49:54:00 ] - [ 00:49:57:00 ]
I'm not going to finish a book just because I want to say that I finished the book.
[ 00:49:58:00 ] - [ 00:49:59:00 ]
And so there was years TV.
[ 00:49:59:00 ] - [ 00:50:04:00 ]
I certainly think that it is a video games, probably to like, I'll get I'll get,
[ 00:50:04:00 ] - [ 00:50:06:00 ]
you know, I think you would be sure
[ 00:50:06:00 ] - [ 00:50:08:00 ]
a lot of times you have to be 10 hours into it to really understand the game.
[ 00:50:08:00 ] - [ 00:50:10:00 ]
But then at that point, you're just kind of like, look, this is a treadmill.
[ 00:50:10:00 ] - [ 00:50:11:00 ]
I'm not doing this.
[ 00:50:11:00 ] - [ 00:50:13:00 ]
Yeah, you can see where it's going at that point.
[ 00:50:13:00 ] - [ 00:50:14:00 ]
And but let's see.
[ 00:50:14:00 ] - [ 00:50:17:00 ]
OK, with books and video games, can't really argue with that.
[ 00:50:17:00 ] - [ 00:50:20:00 ]
Those are big commitments there.
[ 00:50:20:00 ] - [ 00:50:23:00 ]
We're talking about, you know,
[ 00:50:23:00 ] - [ 00:50:27:00 ]
certain shows where, yes, yes, it's it's a bit of a time investment,
[ 00:50:28:00 ] - [ 00:50:31:00 ]
but only the I would not talk about this for just any show like, oh, you must
[ 00:50:31:00 ] - [ 00:50:34:00 ]
complete, but the shows that
[ 00:50:35:00 ] - [ 00:50:37:00 ]
reward you for hanging around for four or five and six
[ 00:50:38:00 ] - [ 00:50:41:00 ]
and then just take off. Yeah. Right.
[ 00:50:41:00 ] - [ 00:50:43:00 ]
Yeah. Those are the ones that I'm talking about.
[ 00:50:44:00 ] - [ 00:50:46:00 ]
Yeah. And I think the best example for me of stuff
[ 00:50:46:00 ] - [ 00:50:51:00 ]
that I was kind of hesitant about that I didn't was the first series of Westworld.
[ 00:50:51:00 ] - [ 00:50:53:00 ]
Like the first episode, two episodes, I was like, oh, this is awesome.
[ 00:50:53:00 ] - [ 00:50:54:00 ]
This is great.
[ 00:50:54:00 ] - [ 00:50:55:00 ]
And then got a third episode.
[ 00:50:55:00 ] - [ 00:50:56:00 ]
I was kind of like, this is going to drag.
[ 00:50:56:00 ] - [ 00:50:57:00 ]
You know, I want to watch this.
[ 00:50:57:00 ] - [ 00:51:00:00 ]
And then I will admit totally that by the time you got to those last two episodes,
[ 00:51:00:00 ] - [ 00:51:02:00 ]
I was like, this is amazing.
[ 00:51:02:00 ] - [ 00:51:22:00 ]
Absolutely, amazingly mind bending, you know what I mean?
[ 00:51:23:00 ] - [ 00:51:26:00 ]
So, yeah, I agree. There are some that I need to continue.
[ 00:51:26:00 ] - [ 00:51:28:00 ]
We've discussed Westworld many times in this podcast.
[ 00:51:28:00 ] - [ 00:51:30:00 ]
Yeah, we're not going to get into that because that's a season bridge.
[ 00:51:30:00 ] - [ 00:51:36:00 ]
But that's a good example of season 2, you dropped out as a lot of people did, and I kept going because season 1 was so good.
[ 00:51:36:00 ] - [ 00:51:38:00 ]
Did you hate watch season 2 though?
[ 00:51:38:00 ] - [ 00:51:41:00 ]
I don't know if I'd call it hate watching. It was more of a...
[ 00:51:41:00 ] - [ 00:51:42:00 ]
[ 00:51:42:00 ] - [ 00:51:47:00 ]
More of a, you know, think of the addict sort of tapping his arm like, come on, give me the rush, give me the rush, give me the rush.
[ 00:51:47:00 ] - [ 00:51:51:00 ]
I know you've got it in there. I know you can do it. I'm so proud of you. Come on, I know you can do this.
[ 00:51:51:00 ] - [ 00:51:52:00 ]
And it just never comes.
[ 00:51:52:00 ] - [ 00:51:53:00 ]
[ 00:51:53:00 ] - [ 00:51:56:00 ]
And so then it becomes a habit. It's like, well, now I have to watch this stupid thing.
[ 00:51:56:00 ] - [ 00:52:04:00 ]
Yeah. Yeah, I can't. Yeah, that's the perfect way to say it. It's like, I'll hang on a little bit, but man, you got to really get it.
[ 00:52:04:00 ] - [ 00:52:10:00 ]
I did see somebody write an article about your Raised by Wolves that you talked about, I think, two podcasts ago.
[ 00:52:10:00 ] - [ 00:52:17:00 ]
That they were like, and again, I haven't watched it yet, but they were like, I cannot believe that this series has ended on the biggest cliffhanger.
[ 00:52:17:00 ] - [ 00:52:20:00 ]
And I guess they canceled it or they're not making another season?
[ 00:52:20:00 ] - [ 00:52:27:00 ]
Last I heard, and we discussed it, I think they were trying to shop it around, trying to see if they could go forward with a third season.
[ 00:52:27:00 ] - [ 00:52:31:00 ]
And again, if you're going to watch it, I don't want to say too much.
[ 00:52:31:00 ] - [ 00:52:39:00 ]
We talked about it before. My brother raved about it. So I will watch that, even if I know the cliffhanger is there and I'm not, that's fine.
[ 00:52:39:00 ] - [ 00:52:46:00 ]
Yeah, like your other show that you mentioned too, the other one on Amazon with the insurance sales guy. What's his name?
[ 00:52:46:00 ] - [ 00:52:53:00 ]
Yeah, we had trouble remembering his name. J. Jonah Jameson. What the heck is his name? J.K. Simmons.
[ 00:52:53:00 ] - [ 00:52:54:00 ]
J.K. Simmons, that's right.
[ 00:52:54:00 ] - [ 00:52:55:00 ]
[ 00:52:55:00 ] - [ 00:52:59:00 ]
Yeah, so yeah, watch TV to watch. I'm going to get you a little app. I'm going to try it. I'm going to see.
[ 00:52:59:00 ] - [ 00:53:04:00 ]
I'm going to log everything and start seeing. But that'll be good for me just because I can be like, all right, we're going to watch this tonight.
[ 00:53:04:00 ] - [ 00:53:05:00 ]
We need to watch this tonight.
[ 00:53:05:00 ] - [ 00:53:07:00 ]
Yeah. Good organization.
[ 00:53:07:00 ] - [ 00:53:09:00 ]
It is. It is. I'm all for the organization.
[ 00:53:09:00 ] - [ 00:53:17:00 ]
My TV watching is chaotic. It's all it's the Eric's whim at 930 p.m. What do I want to watch tonight?
[ 00:53:17:00 ] - [ 00:53:21:00 ]
I would. I'm not kidding with the way things are so scattershot now.
[ 00:53:21:00 ] - [ 00:53:22:00 ]
[ 00:53:22:00 ] - [ 00:53:29:00 ]
If I didn't have some kind of app to pull me back, I would. No, I would forget shows even existed.
[ 00:53:29:00 ] - [ 00:53:38:00 ]
It's amazing to me because during COVID, I was so lined in, like I was so focused on what shows were coming out when so that I could plan my watching around them.
[ 00:53:38:00 ] - [ 00:53:42:00 ]
Now there's just so much that like I can't even keep up with the Clarkson's Farm.
[ 00:53:42:00 ] - [ 00:53:47:00 ]
I loved that first season. I have no clue if the second season has already happened yet or not.
[ 00:53:47:00 ] - [ 00:53:50:00 ]
You know, I mean, I know. Yeah, I know. I just didn't know if it actually came out yet or not.
[ 00:53:50:00 ] - [ 00:53:54:00 ]
And it certainly has come out yet. And I am very much looking forward.
[ 00:53:54:00 ] - [ 00:53:58:00 ]
No, thanks for joining us tonight on episode 33. I think next week we're going to try to do.
[ 00:53:58:00 ] - [ 00:54:04:00 ]
Let's do three episodes because we did two this time. And I felt like I mean, there's like 20 minutes to like when you get to the bottom of something.
[ 00:54:04:00 ] - [ 00:54:08:00 ]
I think we should probably watch an hour of content and we can report on it.
[ 00:54:08:00 ] - [ 00:54:13:00 ]
Looks like episode 10, 11, 12, The Deserter, Lightsaber Lost. That sounds right up your alley, John.
[ 00:54:13:00 ] - [ 00:54:21:00 ]
That's one of your tropes that you continue to harp on or not harp on, but you continue to describe in the show is that you love seeing the lightsabers getting lost.
[ 00:54:21:00 ] - [ 00:54:28:00 ]
Just so much. Yeah. So it sounds perfect. All right. So Lightsaber Lost and then the Mandalore
[ 00:54:28:00 ] - [ 00:54:34:00 ]
Oh, here we go. I'm beginning into some. Oh, that's cool. All right. Cool. That's awesome.
[ 00:54:34:00 ] - [ 00:54:38:00 ]
So, yeah. So we'll do 10, 11 and 12 season to follow along with us if you want.
[ 00:54:38:00 ] - [ 00:54:44:00 ]
We'll discuss that on the next podcast and join me. Did you finish? I'm happy to be here.
[ 00:54:44:00 ] - [ 00:54:51:00 ]
Oh, yeah. Yeah. Hours ago. What do you think? Delicious. Delicious.
[ 00:54:51:00 ] - [ 00:54:58:00 ]
Only I had, you know, another. I just finished my. There's no more in the house. All right.
[ 00:54:58:00 ] - [ 00:55:03:00 ]
Thanks for joining us, guys. I've said 33. We'll see you on episode 34. Everybody stay safe.
