"As usual we wrap things up with the critics corner this week's new arrivals include undone on Amazon unbelievable on Net flicks and American Horror Story Nineteen eighty-four on FX Dan. What's cooking well? I if I had not seen American Horror Story Nineteen eighty-four as if I have said many times I'm looking forward to watching the first few episodes and quitting as usual but I can't tell you if it's better or worse than usual fortunately though there are actually a lot of things things to watch this week and really the main new releases are all pretty good to very good. Unbelievable is Netflix exes this I would say it is complementary to mind hunter. It is to some degree. It's the story of two detectives played by Merit Weaver in Toni Collette investigating a serial rape case. There's also a story line involving Caitlyn deavere as one of the victims potentially of the same serial rapist. Maybe maybe not it is intense and it sounds like it is unpleasant to watch or could could be unpleasant to watch. It is less wallowing than it could be. I would say that the creators Suzanne grants who wrote Erin Brockovich among other things is the primary creator along with a let Waldman and Michael Chaban and it has a really good grasp of tone. It never goes to dark. It has is very good insight into the criminal investigative process what works what doesn't sometimes it's even funny and that has a lot to do with the fact that Moore Weaver in Tony any clutter just wonderful together. It's based on a Pulitzer Prize winning propublica article and I could honestly watch multiple seasons of this or up Toni Collette Leadin Merit Weaver being awesome Caitlyn deavere also awesome. I thought the eighth episode of the eighth. Maybe is a drop in quality. Maybe a little bit more contrived and conventional conventional than the first seven but it's an impressive piece of economical and powerful storytelling then undone which sounds like it should be right. They're also alphabetically which is very important comes from a Raphael Bob Wax Bergen keep purdy who have worked together on Bo Jack Horseman on Netflix. This one is on an Amazon and it is a twisty turny wrote a scoped story about a young woman who becomes unstuck in time and reality after a car the accident and her father voiced by Bob Odenkirk actually played by Bob Odenkirk because that's how wrote a scope works tells her that she has the power to help. nope basically solve the mystery of his death or murder. Main character is played by Rosa Salazar who people will know maybe from alita battle angel or for man seeking woman. She's she's very good. It is not as funny or Quirky as Beau Jack Horsemen but is is visually magnificent the the the rotor scoping technology and the work done by director his Co.. Housing is is stunning to look at. I didn't care about the murder mystery really at all but I love watching this this is this is such a beautiful show to watch and sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it has some big thoughts in its mind. It's Jerry Interesting Are you gonNa Watch either of those two this weekend direction. I actually just started binging elites. I'm probably going to finish that and then I'm hopefully to watch some baseball this weekend. I'm hopefully going to sit out by the pool. That all sounds good if you need a little bit more TV I can also to some degree. Recommend showtimes murderer on the by you. Showtime is getting into the same true. Crime miniseries extended storytelling market that netflix dominated that obviously Amazon has done some. I'm working. A bunch of folks have done it. It's about the investigation into the deaths of young women in a single Louisiana small town. It is full of rather rather mind boggling details miscarriages of justice. It is absolutely difficult to watch. It's a Lotta graphic. Talk about you know people selling their bodies is selling their souls and smoking crack with their parents but it is you're trying to do right there. It doesn't look like it's that exciting small town so apparently you gotta do what you gotTa do it is harrowing but sometimes gripping and mind boggling to watch a lot of pretty good TV to watch this weekend. I would say so there. You

"Dirty dumb is and more. She's a producer on Netflix. Is Bo Jack horsemen and has now created her own series. It's called to see in birdie. It's an animated sitcom about two bird women who live in a city called bird town and it is great. Let's get back to our interview. There are three leads of the show, and none of them are white, and certainly, none of them are white dude's. You've got Steven Jahn Ali Wong alley. The great Allie. Wong, Tiffany, haddish my bud. From San Francisco, Tiffany, haddish, legendary Tiffany, haddish was that a choice that you made or a matter of happenstance, kind of both I wanted to make sure we didn't end up with an all white cast, because that's happened so often before in both live action and animation. And then just looking at, you know, editions and stuff this, this was just the best possible cast, there was no way around it. Like we got Tiffany signed on very early. And then it was a matter of finding a birdie that would sound great with Tiffany. An alley was the best. Absolutely. And they already knew each other. They had great chemistry and then yeah, Steven Jahn just had the best audition as good. He's so good. He's very I, I can't believe like how quickly he can go from comedy to drama. Like I've, I don't quite know, any other actor who can. Do it like him. I'm not surprised to hear that. Tiffany haddish was cast I on the show because she is such a dynamo of a performer like she's just such a force. Yeah. When I saw girls trip by just said, that's a tuba like. It was just undeniable, what were the qualities that you saw in her as performer that made you think that's a to. Absolutely fearless, incredibly funny. But also like had an earnestness or vulnerability like, you know, like she the way she likes it up for her friends in the movie, like, I don't know. She just kind of hit like every quadrant of what I wanted, and then I was reading an article, and I recognized the name of her manager at the time and I knew him. So I was like, oh my God, we can get a script to her, and we did. And she said, yes. Right away, and I cried. It was a great day..

"We do have like an up skirt shot. You know, while they're dancing like I'm not opposed to that could be sex here. I like sexy stuff. But I think I think coming from my perspective, it's maybe a little bit different from other shows who are, that are created by men like, you know, not all my characters are, like big titty. Tiny waist can I say Titi on the show? We're going to have to is NASCAR. Nice man named market NPR. Find out later. So I, I mean I like you know, showing different kinds of body ties, I think a lot of different kinds of bodies can be sexy. So I don't know. I'm just making the show. I wanna watch. So when you are on the show years ago, we talked a little bit about your character designs for Bo. Jack horsemen and the really strong opinions that some internet communities have shared with you, about certain choices in depicting, anthropomorphized animals. Are you talking about the tails? I've talked to you about whether horsemen have tales right? I believe BoJ does not have a tail at least a visible tail details on Bo. Jack, but they felt very strongly. And inclu- rudely, expressed you that they demanded you to believe it was remake the first season with tail. Yeah. They thought we should go back and reanimate the whole thing. I think they didn't quite have an understanding of the process or budget or you know, interest in doing that. But I thought it was very funny mail to get, I mean game of thrones took out that Starbucks Cup. So did they? Yeah. They fixed it you just put in the tail leaving in show, little the process. I think there are some tales onto birdie. I think there's a the deli guy the monkey man. I think he has a tail. So I what I wonder is when you are creating anthropomorphized birds, which is the greater part of the characters on the show 'cause they live in a bird down. In fact, I believe they live in. Bird town. It's called berritown. Yeah. Seven hours away from horse Ville. Do you make choices about what things you are going to make person like, and what things you are going to make bird like because birds have breasts, for example, but they don't have breasts. Yeah, it just kind of got feel most of the characters don't have tails, because they're more humanoid, but then there are some non anthropomorphic animals..

"Go series since the beginning. So this has been his baby. So it was interesting for me trying to come in to this thing that's been very well established and working with this guy been there since the beginning that set the style and trying to basically jump in real fast. Get the style and make sure that we had a good working relationship, and it was interesting pressure. Yeah. It was a lot of pressure. And it was quite the challenge. But that was kind of the good thing about it is that I didn't have time to really over think anything he just had to act. You just have to get it done. When did you come on as we just saw the movie the summer, when did you actually come onto the movie was that last year is the year? I came on at the end of December twenty seventeen. Okay. So. Yeah. Even though it was at the feature, we were still working on television schedule. So everything was very fast. We finished the movie through July. I think and then it came out up once later, whether they first start actually working on it. They started writing about a year year and a half. I think before I even came on. Okay. So they had been working on it for a while. Okay. That's impressive that was done that quickly because most innovative films take between four and seven years. So how were they able to make movie in that? Short spent time I think because the titans crew has been such a well established crew they've all been doing this for so long. I think they had that benefit of just being able to jump in and kind of own was just look at it like a long format of the TV show. So I think the borders, and the writers are just really used to a really aggressive schedule. So I don't think it was really that different from what they're normally do and you have experienced doing animation directing before as you were directing over at beau, Jack. So how did that translate over to working on the I mean it was pretty similar working from bodak titans? We had you know, an inhouse crew that we were working with. So some of the stuff had changed from when it shipped the boards had changed a little bit. The movie was constantly a work in progress. So it was interesting. So there'd be a lot of stuff that. If we completely changed it. I could just hand it off to our in house crew and have them do it. And then it was similar in the fact that we had a couple of different studios overseas that were working. On the movie also. So like, Bo Jack, it was just looking at the scenes making notes making sure everything was kind of what we wanted to be in translating the notes to the studios, how did you and Eric divvy up your responsibilities Taoist kind of an ongoing process like it just kept changing. 'cause like I said when I jumped in it was kinda like animation started come back. It was interesting trying to find out where I fit in not trying to step on his toes in like us working together the team. So it was always fun of all we'd sit down and do notes together the beauty of working with him was that we were looking for having different perspectives on like animation notes. So it was like we combine them together. And then send him off to the studio because the schedule so aggressive sometimes I would take a chunk of stuff and just approve it or I just be like, okay? These scenes ready for a provable of handed off to him. And just be like if they're ready to go just approve them. The movie was such a blur. Interesting working with another director. That's cool. That you bring both nuts together..

"I'm Terry gross back with Raphael. Bob wax. Berg, the creator and show runner of the Netflix animated series. Bo Jack horsemen, it's a satire about Hollywood success failure, depression, addiction and the human condition in general, although many of the characters are not Yemen. They're talking animals with human characteristics season five. Is currently on net flicks and season one is now being shown on comedy central. So you've said that you regret some of the jokes from the first season. And some of the ways Bo Jack's bad behavior like sleeping with his co stars being drunk all the time being mean to people you just kind of regret turning some of those things in to jokes. Can you talk about that a little bit? Sure. Well, I I think regret is maybe a strong word, and I I don't know. What a better word would be go with regret, and it's not necessarily that we had beau Jack doing these things because I think it is part of the character. And and I do think that we have fully investigated these actions. And I think we've taken great pains to try not to glamorize who beau Jack is, but I I think I have a firmer understanding of the power of narrative and the power of humor. I think in the in the context of the show, we were making in the context of animated shows in general, and at the time when the show came out and also just TV shows about let's say bad dudes or dirtbags. I think there is a kind of joke where it feels like you're like holding someone to task, but really your playing it is like kind of cute or funny, and I don't know if he always landed on the right line of that. But I think there are moments in season one where maybe it feels like we're not just letting him off the hook. Cook. But kind of taking his perspective on things. Right. So if he says, a sexist thing, or if he dismisses somebody the obvious joke is not oh, he's a bore. And he shouldn't be saying this it almost feels like we're saying, oh, isn't it? It's kind of cool and funny that he's saying this, even though we know we shouldn't be saying it like don't you kind of wish that you could say these things to you know, what I mean. And and that wasn't that wasn't intentional. But I think it's slippery. And I think that happens sometimes without us meeting to and I think there are a lot of comedy writers. And I would include myself on this who who sometimes think we have a better handle on what we're saying. Then we actually do. And there's a kind of comedy that. I think you could call ironic sexism or post racism, or yes, our characters saying this thing, but we, you know, the voice of the show don't agree with it. And I think that distinction is maybe. More slippery than people allow themselves to believe, I don't know if you have the control over that that you think you do about how that goes out into the world and how people internalize that humor. You know, I I grew up in the area of south park. And I think south park is a brilliant show, and there's so much that they do. Well. And I they've made me think about a lot of things in new ways. But I also have a lot of jokes about Jews. And I remember being in middle school and high school and people like making jokes about me that they got from south park. And obviously if you ask Matt and Trey they would say, well cartman is not a role model. You're not supposed to think he's like cool or funny or charming, but I think middle school or high school me who is the butt of those jokes would say, well, what's the difference? You know, what what does that mean to me? And I think I am also guilty of of making jokes like that in the mouth of beau Jack or some of our other characters and not always thinking about what are the longer ramifications of this on our culture is there. An example, you can give a joke that you may be regret or wish you had placed differently in a contextual. Sure. I can give a couple examples. You know, I think a big one which I feel very comfortable talking about is a lot of the Jewish jokes. We have had throughout the show. And it's something that I myself as a Jew. You feel some ownership of and feel comfortable with and there's a lot of holocaust jokes. And I think maybe I believed in season one and two that we were passed anti-semitism. And I think now I look around the world, and I think that was naive on my part. And I think we were not as past it as I had convinced myself that we were and thought that we were now some of those jokes in the early seasons. Just hit me a little differently. Another joke about somebody that I am not as we have a joke in season two and Bocek is a very Borish character, and we had a gag where he's going on this press tour, and everyone's worried that he's going to say something offensive, and they're going to Alaska, and he has a line about we're going to Alaska. What am I going to say that's gonna offend a bunch of inbred eskimo blubber munchers is the line and on paper, I can defend that joke, and I can say no the joke of that is not on the Alaskans. It's about how stupid Bo Jaquez. And now he doesn't realize and clearly the way it's set up is, oh he is saying this offensive thing and not even knowing that it's offensive. So I feel like technically we are in the right on this joke. But someone tweeted at me a couple of years ago and said, you know, I am a native Alaskan myself, and I was watching your show, and there is not a lot of representation for my people. On television, and to watch this show. Make this joke about my people, and knowing that this was the only reference in the show of my people, and knowing that nobody who works on the show is of my people. It it hurt. And I cannot then say no, but you are wrong because I did it correctly. I you misinterpreted. So you're wrong to be offended. I have to hear that note and go, oh, you're right. Maybe weren't as careful about that as we should have been. I know I know some comics feels become actually very difficult to do comedy. Because there's always somebody calling you out for saying something politically incorrect. Some wondering how you've changed the right in on the show with this kind of sensitivity that you feel you didn't have in the first season. And that you're trying to have now. Well, I mean, first of all who says comedy should be easy. Like why why did you get a free, Pat? Like, oh, this is my.

"Issues like success and failure ego. Power addiction relationships and sexism season five is set in the era of the metoo movement. Vo Jack horsemen takes advantage of the kind of characters that you can pull off in an animated series. It's a world that's a mix of people and talking animals with human characteristics. Bo Jack is a horse who became famous as the star of the ninety s sitcom coursing around. But when season one of Jack horsemen begins Bo Jack is washed up his celebrity has faded. And he spends a lot of time drinking feeling sorry for himself and watching old reruns of his sitcom horsing around admire. Hiring. How great he was on the show back then. Let's start with a clip from the very first episode of Jack horsemen when beau Jack is a guest on the Charlie rose show. Nineteen Ninety-seven situation comedy Orson around premiered on ABC the show, which young bachelor horses for Sirri evaluators priorities. We agreed to raise three human children was initially dismissed by critics is broad and saccharin and not good. But the family comedy struck a chord with America went on the air for nine seasons. Star of horsing around, Bo Jack horsemen is our guest tonight. Welcome Bo, Jack. It is good to be here. Charlie. Okay, raphael. Bob wax. Berg. Welcome to fresh air. Time changes. How we see things doesn't it? When you when you did that Charlie rose opening you probably had no idea that he would be accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, and that would lead to the loss of his job. So let's just start with the surprise of that for you. Did you think of that opening episode won the women's step forward? It really dates the show, doesn't it have Charlie rose be the voice of sober reason. That look at Bo Jack who is such a mess in Fargo and unprofessional and Charlie rose played in in this club by patent Oswald is our straight person in the scene, and yeah, when the allegations against Charlie rose came out, I don't want to say my first thought was oh my show because he was and it was truly, oh, no Charlie rose and all the women that he allegedly targeted. That's terrible. But it is interesting now to go back to that first episode and look at it and think about how times have changed. So how did you come up with the idea of starting a series with a horse that can talk and walk onto legs and dress and be bitter like a human being and have them be the wash. Star of family sitcom, well, the idea for the show really started from my friendship with Lisa. Hanna waltz who is a brilliant illustrator and cartoonist, and I have been friends with her since high school. And when I was in Los Angeles pitching shows around she was living in Brooklyn at the time. And one thing she was doing was just drawing these animal people on her own and posting them in her blog and on the internet. And I thought they were just so gorgeous these designs of these characters which were human from the neck down more or less with these animal heads, and so I started thinking about is there a show that I could write with these animal people. So that's kind of where the the animal people part comes into it where the bitterness and 'isolation and melancholy and cynicism comes into it. I guess that'd be my half of the equation. I was living in Los Angeles. And I just moved here from New York myself, and the the first place I ever lived here. No way was like a friend of a friend's house might somehow found a connection to and it was like this tiny little closet of a bedroom in this gigantic gorgeous house in the Hollywood hills. And I remember there were rumors amongst the other people living there that was the third highest elevated house in all of Hollywood that Johnny Depp had lived there once and it was this very fancy very LA house with a pool and a deck. Overlooking the city, and I got there, and I was this nobody, and I didn't know anybody in town. And there was this winding treacherous road to get there, which I was terrified of taking and I felt so disconnected from everything and that idea feeling simultaneously on top of the world. And also never. For more alone. Isolated was the beginning of of of this character for me. And I wanted to make a show about a character who had every opportunity for success and still couldn't find a way to be happy. And then mixing that with Lisa's animal. Drawings was the pitch. So Jack is a horse who's raising three human children in the sitcom horsing around is that inspired by like different strokes about a white wealthy businessman whose wife is deceased. He's living on Park Avenue, and he Dobbs his late housekeepers to children who are African American. And so it's just like unusual blended family that all the comedy is built around. It's actually based on a lot of things. I mean, different strokes is certainly an inspiration full house the Brady bunch step by step. I mean, I think in the seventies and eighties and nineties. There are a lot of sitcoms about different family units in blended families, an odd configurations of families in different ideas of of what? It makes a family. So it felt very appropriate that in our world where we have animals and people coexisting that there would be a show about a horse bachelor raising three human kids and learning how to make a family together. So did you grow up on those TV shows? I did. Yeah. I'm a big fan of those shows the TGIF ABC lineup was a big part of my childhood. I grew up Jewish and we can never go out on Friday nights. So we would stay in and watch family television together. And those shows mean a lot to me and one thing that I really enjoy exploring on Bo Jack horsemen is our culture's relationship with these, you know, some might say cheesy sitcoms of the eighties and nineties and also Bo Jackson relationship with being a part of it that even Bo Jackson and bitter about being on this show that he knows it's not the height of art and sophistication, but there are real people who come to him and say this show mental. A lot to me. And it means something and I like that. Well, we're on the subject of cheesy horsing around the show that project started in had a theme song and not many TV shows have theme songs anymore that explain the premise of the show. Yeah. And so I love that that horsing around actually has the theme song explaining what the show is about. So I thought we could listen to the theme song. So that's the theme song for the show within a show on Bo. Jack horsemen so Raphael. Why did you want a theme song for horsing around? Well, you know, like you said, you don't hear theme songs, certainly not expository theme song so much in this day and age, but it does feel like a staple of those shows like the Brady bunch is the perfect example of okay case, you're just tuning in. Here is the premise of the show. This is who these characters are this is how it works and it felt like a really fun way. In like, I thought if you heard this song, you would immediately know what kind of show this is since Jack has a horse. Did you ever watch? Mr. Ed, you're too young to have grown up with it. But was that an influence at all and he to like the beau Jack horsemen series within the series horsing around he too had a theme song that kind of explained the premise of the show that he was. Yakking horse. I I have seen a little Mr. edit is slightly before my time. But I think the the nature of being my age is that when I stayed home sick from school. I didn't have cable. So I would just watch whatever was on TV, which was often older rerun. So I do have a bit of pop culture knowledge outside of my own experience. And certainly part of the original pitch was what's Mr. Ed like behind the scenes, right? What what is when Mr. Ed goes home after shooting? He really, and that was a helpful way to think about the series. That's really funny. If you're just joining us, my guest is Raphael, Bob wax, Berg. And he's the creator and show runner of borak horsemen an animated comedy tragedy. That's both really funny and sometimes really really sad. So we're going to take a short break, and we'll be right back. This is fresh air. This is WNYC. You're listening to fresh air. And this is the first day of our fall pledge drive here at WNYC. We are relying on you.

"Okay. Can I just tell you? How mazing it is to hear a man say that Palomo someone needed to take a stand? Crazy. This is just old beau Jack talking, but how about we don't show any? Right. Choke. Rafael way. I just what I watched this episode. I laughed and I turned away. It made me uncomfortable is could be because this conversation goes horribly wrong. Even though he saying all the right things. I guess don't show. I agree that we should not joke. Women that's certainly is nothing to laugh about. But I mean to me, I think that the comedy of this episode, and Bo Jack's character in this episode comes from the real place that I've experienced from being a male feminist. How often I feel like I and other men get credit for the bare minimum for tweeting out something that. Women have been shouting about for the last fifty years. All of a sudden like I'm a progressive feminist hero. And I think that's really sad. But like many things on our show. It is sad. But also darkly funny. We really wanted to explore that and kind of point out that even people who have the best of intentions. Can can sometimes fall into the trap of patting themselves on the back for for doing the bare minimum, and then also people sometimes you don't have the best of intentions can also Pat themselves onto the actress doing a bit of signaling instead of Ryan Valerie. And I think it is important for for for men and people with privilege to speak out on behalf of those who do not have those privileges. But I think it's it's a delicate thing and it requires sensitivity of how how to do it in a helpful way. Anonymous self serving Bo Jack is the kind of guy who would love to just signal a little bit and get out of it in a self serving way, he'll take he'll take the credit without doing the work that's beau Jack style and then just get people to leave him alone afterward. Yeah. What Raphael, you know? One thing. I've I've noticed about Bo Jackson. It's not hard to notice is that he just he manages to repeat his same mistakes over and over again. And I don't like to think that he hasn't grown at all in a positive way over five seasons. He hasn't learned anything. Sometimes I get a little bit. Sometimes we'll get a little bit annoyed with him that he just hasn't learned. I mean has he is he grown up at all. I think he has. I think progress is never a straight line. I like to think that he's taking two steps forward. One step back, maybe sometimes three steps back. But I would like to think that he's you know, crawling and grasping in the right direction. And I think it is to be determined where he will end up. But I like you get frustrated with him sometimes. And I I hope for for better. And I think you know, the story will be the story and every day we come in. And we think about all right? Well, what's what's going to happen next? And then we'll see where it goes Princess. Caroline is is striving to have a more meaningful life outside of just money and work. Yeah. I think we'll see what the heck is this as well. One of the fun things about having a show that's been on five seasons. Now is you know, you start with with the beau Jack horsemen story, and then, you know, at first all these other characters there to kind of help him tell his story, but then gradually we flush them out to tonight. I think we have five really interesting nuance to main character is that that all carry their own stories have their own wants, and desires, dreams and fears. And so it's been really fun to flush those out and explore the the nooks and crannies of of their narratives, it's a world of animals and people and puns and slapstick and deep deep dark sometimes sometimes off-putting themes, but it is one of the best shows on the air. It is Bo Jack horsemen like I said, I'm a fan, and I'm just not going to hide it Raphael baba expert because it's a pleasure for me to talk to you. So thanks for being with us. Thank you so much. This is a blast Rafael, Bob wax. Berg is the creator and show runner of beau. Jack.

"This is one eight I'm Todd's will like infra Joshua Johnson talking with Raphael. Bob blacksburg. He's the show runner of Netflix. Bo Jack horsemen it just released its entire fifth season for streaming. And I've watched just about all of that fifth season Raphael. Let's talk about season five, let's get into it. It's getting nerdy. A big amount of season five is spent poking fun at the idea of the autour show runner himself. There's alliance actually something along the lines of television is a collaborative medium where one person gets all the credit, and yeah, I have to say when that line came up at the table read it got a much bigger than I was expecting from the crowd of people there. I mean is it a little surreal to be a show runner on a press tour about a season of your show where one of the characters as show runner who. I'm sure would kill to be on a press tour talking about a shy a little bit. It's it's strange and. One of the things we wanted to talk about we're putting the season together. Is this weird moment? We're in now of the tourist show runner, which is really like a new development in the last ten years or so. And it it strikes me as very odd. Because I don't think that I'm a a brilliant genius. Who touches a show and turns it into gold, and it all just flows out of the pencil, which is connected to my brain. It's a very collaborative process, and we have people making a better every step of the way, I have an amazing writing room and a cast brings so much the designs by Lisa. Hanna wall to the director is bring so much to the episodes, the story board animators the editors really it takes a village. So it's odd. Yes. I am doing all these interviews now talking about the show and talking about how I made the show because it's not how a TV show gets made at all. And I think anyone who presents that as how a TV show gets made is trying to sell something. But then what exactly does the whiteboard in the writer's room? Look like when you've got the word play, the slapstick, the ponds and the pratfalls overlaid on some of the deep dark themes that run throughout the seasons and the show also has a memory memory his his mistakes. It's a very I mean in a lot of ways, I think we write the show like a drama, but we're a room full of comedy writers. So we can't help them make it funny, but we really are mostly interested in you know, what is the character arc of the season. What are the themes were looking to explore what are the consequences of these actions? You know, we take very seriously. But then in the middle of that we remember like, oh, right. And this guys are talking octopus. We're exploring familial trauma here. But also this woman is dating a man that is clearly just three small boys stacked on top of each other under trenchcoat like little rascals. So the storytelling is quite serious. But the stories themselves can be quite silly. You know, one way I think of it is retelling stories about real grounded characters in a crazy cartoon universe. Lots of animated shows have gotten made over the last twenty years, thanks to the success of the Simpsons largely but not shows as deep and as adult as Bo Jack who to whom do you think you owe your origins in television. Who do you see as your four? Oh, you mean, my influences or do you mean, literally the people who helped me have a television show? I mean, the shows that you watch or even if you weren't that into them to shows that made it possible for show Bo Jack to be such a hit with American audience. Well, I think you know, obviously, the giant is the Simpsons, and I ain't gonna be disingenuous for me to claim that that show had had no influence on me or my show or the success of my show. One of the best called men's I got on the first season of bojenka. Someone said it felt like a season long version of a sad episode of the Simpsons. But also when I was pitching the show. I really wanted it to exist outside of the bubble. Or the perceived bottle of animated television. I said we're gonna when we started season one you're going to watch it, and I it's gonna feel like typical animated show a Simpson's or a south park. But then over the course of the season as you realize what's happening. It's gonna feel more like a girls or even a madman. And so I wanted this to feel more like a drama and to really take things seriously. In a way that people don't expect animation to even though I think a lot of animated shows actually do take things very seriously. But, but but those shows were certainly influences as well at one of the main attractions of your show for me are the amazing voice performances that you have. Oh, yeah. Will Arnett as Bo Jack Amy sedaris credible Princess Caroline of aging Hollywood manager producer cat. A lot of others to even have Keith Olbermann in there at some. Yeah. Homers one of the first people we cast as a newscaster whale as a newscaster. Well, we had in the script. He. Keith Olbermann wail type and are casting director, Linda Lamontagne said I think we can get Keith Olbermann to play this role. Really? And we call them. He's like, yeah. Sounds like fun. And he's fantastic. We keep bringing back season after season. And one of my first memories of making the show, and realizing how fun it was going to be was we had Keith on the phone from New York, and we had them do all his lines. And then at the end, we said, we also get you making some whale noises, and this Keith Olbermann who I thought of as a very serious man goofing around going. Making whale noises. This is gonna be a fun show. I think well, one of your other main characters is Diane. A Vietnamese American voiced by actress Allison Brie, who's phenomenal. Now, you gave a slate interview recently and also a Twitter thread, which is which is the way you have to do with these days, and you mentioned one ramification of that choice. Casting Allison Brie is Diane that you tended to avoid referencing. Her Asian American this in the show. Now this season, that's changed. Diane does take a trip to the Vietnam of her heritage and talks a lot about how that affects her. How did her casting come about? And how did you begin to have second thoughts about it? Well, we cast Allison. In the first season. And we were about a third of the way into the season. When we caster we've been working with a different actress who had to drop out of the show all of a sudden because another show she was on got picked up, and there was a contractual issues. So she couldn't be lead on our show anymore. And so we really scrambled in Allison came in. And we thought she was amazing and she's done a great job ever since. But more and more as I was looking around at at the cast and thinking about you know, how how this show is put together and the makeup of the cast. It started to dawn on me that everyone in our cast was white in our main cast and a lot of the recurring people. We were hiring were white as well. And this was an intentional thing that I was doing as a racist, man. It was just I was not paying attention. And we're casting these characters one at a time. And I realized that oh, this is ninety to start paying attention to. And so since then we've tried to cast a wider net and look particularly for for diverse voices and try to have more people of color on the show. But when it comes to Diane specifically. There is a real problem in this industry of casting white people in Asian roles. And I was not as aware of that. When we first started the show as I am now. And so that's the thing that I would do differently is casting a white person to play a prominent Asian character. And you know, as I said in these other interviews, I think it's hurt the show because I think my own self consciousness has prevented us from telling Asian stories. I think because I guess I didn't want people to talk about this. It felt like this is a mistake we made, and if I can just, you know, avoid it or glide past it, then, you know, maybe this won't become an issue. This won't become the thing that I ended up talking about in every interview. And I think that was a disservice to the character because I think it ended up. You know, we we ended up treating her is just like a white character. Or as if race didn't matter, and it's it's difficult than our show. Because in some ways race doesn't matter because there's also talking elephants and anti and drafts walking around. So it's hard to say how is an Asian American humans experience that different from a white American humans experience. But I think there are differences, and I'm more interested in exploring them now. And I feel like the avoidance of the issue is holding us back negatively well instead of avoiding it then you took responsibility for it on your own initiative. And as I said in season five Diane confronts, those issues directly for herself makes a trip to Vietnam and narrates an entire episode about the experience for her. I also mentioned Amy sedaris voice of Princess Caroline. She's my she's my favorite character. I just love the way she voice acts in one episode. This season Caroline is dealing with. Her mother voiced by. Amy's brother, the author David sedaris, take listen to one of their exchanges. This is from season five episode five this story of Amelia Earhart. The problem is when people with losing numbers think they're winners. I don't know what you're talking about. Then what the hell are these college, brochures? I think you're going to some fancy college in California all the way on the other side of the country from your mother, you're going to abandon me. Mom. It's not about you. You see ya? No. You will not see LA, even if you get into one of these places are you gonna pay for get a job or a paid internship? Well, da. I did not realize I was in the presence of someone who is going to get a paid internship mom, you need to go to bed. See that's the difference between you and me Princess Caroline. I know where I belong. This is my fed that was Amy sedaris as Princess Caroline, David sedaris, her brother as her mother Cutie Cutie cupcake they cancelled by the way, and Amy and David are from North Carolina, which you know. Yeah. Fred David sedaris, his books, and and I think that Amy and her brother David are are channelling something that's very real to them. Perhaps, you know. It's funny listening to that conversation because I think it really illustrates we were talking about before is that that is actually a very serious conversation between a mother and her daughter. It's it's fraught with drama. But then at the same time, you know, you're watching it you you can't escape the fact that these are both pink cats called Princess Caroline, Cutie Cutie cupcake. There's it's sprinkled with jokes like the UCLA. You will not see LA this word play in the middle of this very serious conversation. That was a real joy to get David sedaris to be a guest. Are we asked Amy do you think he would be interested? We have this part for him. And she said, I think that's sounds like a lot of fun. And so he he called in and he was very self conscious about it. And he said, you know, I'm not really an actor. But I I wanna do this frame me. But if I'm terrible, you know, you can replace me, and you don't have to feel bad about it. And then he said the first line is that oh my God. That's Princess Caroline's mother, he's a total natural, obviously, he's a performer. I mean, he reads his own stuff all the time. So I don't know why what he had to be nervous about. But I think he gives an incredible performance. And I feel like you can really hear the family between them it feels like they're family, which of course, they are. I'm todd. You're listening to one in episode for this season. It's called beau Jack feminist it gets real in Hollywood because Bocek gets credit for speech. Speaking out against Vance Wagoner. He's a bad Hollywood man kind of character. Maybe sorta like a like a Mel Gibson type or somebody unless you're Gibson type. You can say here's a will Arnett as beau Jack talking to the host of the squawk who are all birds, obviously during that upset it is really incredible. You're taking a stand against your own coast. No, I'm not taking any stadium. The guy choked his wife and most of Hollywood was like, no biggie. Good for him. Okay. Well, obviously, it's not good. He choked his wife. No, no, no, no, no, no. I wasn't trying to make some bold statement or anything. It's just joking. Your wife is bad..

"Design wise come in those more dramatic sequences, what's what's fun about getting serve, cut loose and like, what have you been a really excited about being able to do in some of those sequences? I lay it whenever we get to break the style of the show. Like I love in episode four, zero six, where we get into bodak head and we see those. It's like a UPA style animation. And a lot of that was the director and Walker, and we really collaborated on those not in the script hearing voice over an an came in with this pitch of, I want to do this style, which is great too, because if you don't go to something else and you're just kind of sitting with him and kind of moving from room to room and we did that two three times, then you go, okay. Number. Four through fifth, but it's fun to go. It just really breaks it up in a very dynamic way. Yeah, and it was partly inspired by old fashioned animation, and then partly by my more sketchy or comics that I've drawn and we kind of made it look super sketchy and scribble Ian, I just love it whenever we can do that. It's super fun. We did a really great one in season two as well during Wanda's joke. She tells a long story and it looks like a children's book like almost like one of those golden books or something that was pitched by our our editor. Molly Yar idea. Yeah. And because yeah, 'cause the the dialogue is so crisp in in quick on the page. But in reality, when you're looking at it, I guess on the screen, you know, it's like this is a long conversation cracking in that really kind of really served to break it up in a really dynamic way. And then I got to use sort of a look. That's the opposite from the way the rest of the show looks where instead of using this black line art, that's very clean with light color inside I took away all the line art and just in shapes and colors. We fun for me. Grace at cat. One in the seasons is in four were the quasi. I love that. We're all singing. So fun. Yeah, came from Amy, Amy hitter. Infre-. Amy? Yeah. How do you those scenes that are a little more serious that are just two people talking. There have been several of them. How do you vary those up visually to keep them how to keep the filmmaking interesting. When it's, you know, just to horses and their lips are kind of moving. Well, we play a lot of kind of flat because a lot of stuff is more just kind of quick back and forth comedy. But then you had a great sequence like in season four where Bo Jack is starting to get a little with his mother's doll and and Walker and her border assistant director yet your Gordon, really. They went through like our whole backlog of available backgrounds and they were cutting around way more in not letting those backgrounds that we barely use and putting them on an angle to really dynamic amp up the commission. That's mean that's an amped up seeing. I think, you know if you're asking about like scenes of like, you know what I think of is like the episode, twelve scenes of like, all right, everything's screwed up, Bo Jackson, his living room. Someone comes to visit him and they have a conversation. And those are. I mean. Those are pretty flat because I mean that it counters kind of the wacky nece and the craziness of the rest of the answers we try to. Okay, it out of the way it's gotta the way exactly. It's very restrained. We don't want to be. We don't wanna be watching. Thinking about the camera angles. We want to be kind of just like sitting with these characters in the scene. They're having this conversation, and let's just be here to have like a break, honestly because it was so packed dense with visuals and jokes, and and the script is so dense to with puns and all this, these references and stuff..

"All. I can't recommend highly enough. Any less second thoughts before we get into both Christian. Definitely watch it. I think it's really great and against comparing season to season two. They're both really great for different reasons and VO jackets on. All right. So as you can see here, people who still watching and joining us in the live chat thing. You guys men, Bocek poor poor, Jack looking picture like, man, I'm so upset and sad with my life. And then we end up seeing what he does ultimately, right, which I won't get into. But it's it's great knowing that like, okay, now his characters redeemable because like I was telling you Christian, why I was not a fantasy. One through three is like, here's a jerk. And here's jury who has money who had it all in inist lob and maybe things can get better. But then to me, right, there's always situations where his life is fucking peachy and then he just becomes so what's the word? He's masochistic narcissist to the point where he drives everyone away, which I would feel sympathy for if he wasn't already in the situation where. It was already good right to me. I'm like, why does he keep on doing this? I don't like them. I don't care for him. I don't give a shit about him like the supporting cast. And then season four came around where I'm like, oh, this isn't Tyson. And now going into season five. I like it, right. We can talk about season five without talking about the funeral episode right where he just doing this entire monologue for us and you just hear his backstory and everything. Were you see why he is? Who is. Yeah. I mean, look, the season was achievement. Bo Jack's joining us here. I've loved that show from the beginning. I know you were a much harder sell and I understand criticism criticisms of it because it's hard to feel bad for guy, constantly ruins things. But I do want to also say that it's like I feel like you're just a more healthy person than already. You can't understand like the idea of having things and yet still feeling like something's missing. That's like, dude, fuck in wonderful for you. Like run with that feeling. The rest of us like manically depressed, human beings. Like we look at Bo, Jack, and it's not that we're idolizing some anti euro because if nothing else sees five proves to you do not do not like fetish is with this guy is a broken fucking guy like we're not supposed to be rooting for Bo Jack anymore at all. And you're right. Like the big standout episode of the season has to be the episode stakes which is called free Chiro, and it is a thirty minute monologue. That Bo Jag is giving a fucking eulogy at a funeral and either like tell me what an achievement that is. I live action shows can't really pull it off, but goddamn cartoon ages. You'd row fucking tractor beams. Your goddamn attention enforces you to care in like every little bit of that story is like heartbreaking you. You're embarrassed for him, but you also understand in this this and that. And so you do this season? Definitely. Like it continued that trend being this really emotional thing. But I think we're, we're bucked. The trend was an a couple things. It showed you Jack's not to be fucking idolized also for the first time him trying to seek help for something. And that's where you know. I think that's where you liked it riot because it was someone who is like I keep making the same stakes. What do I do to fix it? Will you actually have to admit that you have problems and seek help. And this is the first time in five seasons that we've actually had that from Bocek dude. What do you think of all the meat, you stuff? Man, because I thought it was a really relevant time to do the season, but Zana mation. So you know, this has been going on for a while now, and I wonder how much of this accidentally mirrored, how much of it was completely deliberate. But this is a real examination of of like male privilege, I guess, in Hollywood because that's what this is after all satire of Hollywood, celebrity status, show like that. How do you think the handle that?.

"So as unofficial official post show, we'll be going in length about Castlerock and Ozark and what we thought about that. But let's go ahead and jump into it all. And before I do let me go ahead and give a shout out to all the toasties core here. Here what is going on guys? The official Chetta tat tat once again, guys, we appreciate all you being here. You guys are the reasons why Christian and I are so motivated and driven to give you the best show despite the small hiccups and despite some of the things we do alternately, we hope you'll enjoy and keep us engaged and keep us on our toes and tell us why we suck so or tell us, we suck. We suck because we haven't started this show yet. So that's hurry up and start the show miles do it. All right. So let's go ahead and start the show off and with the first thing we have here is Bo jet courses, so that came out last week and let me go ahead and just kind of play this while we are discussing it in lane. So Christian, I just got off the train here watching four episodes of Bocek and people who don't know last week my tastes are my opinion on. It was very. Not not very popular amongst the toasties and a lot of other people in general, because I say to fight man, it would have been the first fight on air. How would you felt that beau Jack would have been the thing that the division between us? Well, first of all, I would say ratings, so let's go ahead to keep fighting just for the sake of ratings, but before reportedly. Yeah, let's go ahead and jump into the bodak at all. You guys didn't know what my opinion was of it last week. I just quickly said, I understand why people like it. I'm just not in love with the show and for me to now make a little bit, of course correction because I like to make a lot of analogies and differ or sway away from why don't like stuff. Let me go ahead and just quickly say, I love the supporting cast. I love everything in the beau Jack universe. I just don't like Bo Jack himself. I think there's an episode and season four where they were. The not Dr character. What's her name? Yeah. Darya. I think Diane to saying like your masochist and you're just very self destructive and your narcissist and all that stuff, and I can get fine with the character being like that. But I think for me is like, yeah, he self destructive. And there's so many opportunities within the show seasons one through three before people get on me where I'm like four once four. Well, no. I'm saying in seasons one through three. I, I, yeah, seasons one through three. I'm not too crazy about him because there's opportunities where I'm like his life is turning around and then he just somehow self sabotage himself for no reason. And now I'm watching it like I don't like Bocek as a character. Like I just don't care for him at all, but I like everything around it. But as I was finishing season four and going into see them five. You know, there's that amazing episode with him and his mother, and you get that little origin story and that kind of blew me away, you know, and that got me thinking, wow, this show is actually it's always been smart, but now really appreciated for what it is, but I've been talking too much Christian. What are your initial thoughts on season five. Well, initially, let me just say happy. You finally came around the episode. You're referring to episode called stupid piece of shit, which sounds humorous, but it definitely isn't. So I think one of the. Deepest cuts the entire show, but I'm glad that something brought you around to. I really love it. I mean, just to be clear, we've only seen the first four episodes of the season next week. We'll do a full review on the show, but just based on the purse or episodes, I really love it. Initially, we were just going to be the first three, but then I said, hey, watch episode or because I think that's the crux of the show of like your complaints about the show which is that is a likable character. But in the fourth episode of the season, they have a whole arc about like normalising that behavior or normalization good purposes, right?.

Models and a historic venue built in the eighteenth century horses models outside horses. There was lots of horses. Leave it at that. Then a rainstorm hit. I'm not talking about a little sprinkle day lose lose huge rainstorm right before the show started to also eighteenth century building plumbing. So what they do they showed collection and the rain everybody got so cking what the runway show was two hours late. Everybody was stuck in traffic because they're trying to get out of Paris in the middle of crazy weather. They had enough time to grab umbrellas for people. So a lot of people who were attending the show had umbrellas all the models all the horses the entire stadium that they were in completely washed out. I just have this vision of them like running up the corner to the guy who just gets out all of his umbrellas when it rains and sells them furiously overpriced. I'll take him off. He's got these mismatched umbrellas fashion show. I just I just want it to looked like that. Oh, that's so unfortunate. So there were female Mexican rodeo writers professionals. Yes.

It's theater, it's marketing and theater. And if it would have been nice sunshiny day, it would have been a completely different experience. But the models just kept on going like nothing was happening. If you look at the pictures, they total profess and they just kept on going what they're paid for. They're paid to become cool and collected and beautiful and the horses. Same thing. Paid for all the same things. Sure. Look if the horses not common collected you have a problem. Do you know how much work that was to get that many horses and models and an audience like all in the same place..
