"Of called Easter so we we kind of took our normal Sunday off and on Skaggs by the way your co host and with me of course as my other co host Jesse Jackson Hi Jessie how are you. I am doing wonderful. Aw As we record this is April twenty fifth and all over the Internet at least for a small section of people <hes> no not the Gotham <hes> finale the Internet. It is going crazy for western stars a new Bruce springsteen album is due out June fourteenth. I don't think that's what they're excited about tonight okay. I I kinda think they're more excited about a certain marvel movie. That debuts abused tonight that he should know if my spouse was more inclined to go out on Thursday night instead of Friday night out that I'm better anything about it. I have my ticket for Saturday morning. Oh Me Yeah we're going tomorrow night going to go see obviously we're talking about vendors endgame guess which all <hes> advance reviews that are non of the non spoiler reversion. Yes <hes> seemed to say really sticks the landing so I'm very happy to hear that I am too I so I I work from home today because we had a couple of repair guys coming to the House and so I pulled up <hes> <hes> infinity ward on net flicks and it had that rolling in the background while I was working to kind of as a reminder of what's happening so Laurie and I watched that last night as a refresher yes so that was fun. Sorry so so yeah before for this turns into the Avengers podcast yes <hes> let's get back to doom patrol and so here at episode thirty we're GONNA talk about hair patrol and this was a very interesting episode for a number of reasons and <hes> some good some not so good and we'll talk about that. <hes> this was doom patrol's <hes> tenth episode as we hit the two-thirds mark of the first season so we're next week we start heading into the home stretch and this was released just a few days ago several days ago now April Nineteenth Twentieth nineteen written by Eric digital a new writer to the series and directed by Salli Richardson Whitfield another a new director to the series okay. I am not GonNa hold that against them. Okay all right yeah. Go ahead and hit us with your thoughts. I think this was the first miss of the season I don't yeah I I guess they were trying to move the story ahead and giving us a back story on the chief in why he became so secretive and his background with the bureau for of normalcy <hes> and then we we did get to see what happened during last episode when everyone when cliff was in Jane's World Mind. We get to see what happened. <hes> as I postulated that we see that I just I did not like anything about this episode. I mean so basically this is going to be this episode. Here of Titan. Talk is going to be me talking to myself no Charles. What'd you think about this? Let me tell you I will share. I you know I I just think it's a swinging Amiss Fair. That's fair and so as we get through. I'll tell you in details why I didn't care about the episode. So what are your thoughts quick thoughts well. My quick thoughts is is I agree with you in the sense that I this was my least favorite episode of the season so far. I don't think it was quite the miss that you seem to feel it was but I do think that it it was obviously lacking something and I think it was mostly because of the normal doom patrol team dynamic was the key part of this now. There was a lot of back story in there was a lot of little teases of things that I wanNA talk about <hes> particularly a couple of characters that may be coming up on the series and <hes> from doom patrol comic Lore and <hes> but and we did like like you said we got to see things from Vicken Rita's point of view <hes> from Jane Patrol but other than that yeah I think I think that it just <hes> this. The tone of this episode was just completely different from what we had seen so far it wasn't it wasn't the you know like as we're sure I mean it was weird but it wasn't as like like entertaining weird. It was more like it was more. Just this really odd almost like an X.. Files kind of episode to me yeah and I I really try not to hold against it. That are villain you know eight hair. I mean which is disgusting to begin with but he he wasn't a very interesting villain and it's more of a comical villain but he wasn't you know when you try to do drama in fail. You can still do a story when you try to do comedy and fail. It just looks awkward so Oh yeah yeah and we'll we'll break this down because I obviously I want to break this. You know the the various characters down in their segments like we normally do sounds but <hes> in what kind of dig deep and a little why this episode turned out the way it did okay okay. That's unfair. Yes very all right <hes> before we get into that though I wanna run down the guest cast for this week <hes> first off we had next Martini who played alistair the you know Niles wiles is hunting <hes> friend ally at the beginning of the series at the beginning of the episode. You know the one that ultimately falls through the ice at the end <hes> he's notable because if you saw the movie precip Pacific diffic- Rim Guillermo del Toro movie which is awesome. You know where you had all kinds of cool Mecca of robots giant McEnroe rods <hes> he played a character named her Hanson he was that kind of <hes> the the father of the Father father-son duo the Australian father son do in that movie and <hes> so he was very cool character in that movie and so <hes> it's Kinda cold him here. He's also been on episodes of twenty four and revenge so I thought I mentioned that small small part on castle. He is one of those those guys right. There used to be a were of web page. There still might be right. Oh that guy has that kind of face. He is a very well known character actor her and so that was good to see him. Yeah I really did like in Pacific Rim. Though Tommy Snyder who played the Beard Hunter Aka Ernest Franklin he's been in the movies dumb and Dumber to he was on episode of Veronica Mars and episode of arrested development so he obviously has a more comedic background <hes> p._S._A.. POW who an actress I thought really interesting this episode so."
