"The short video platform tiktok was already a big hit before the pandemic but since so many people have been stuck at home since march a lot. More people are discovering it and even though tiktok is in the news for its new. Ceo kevin meyer. Who was poached from disney and for record labels who think the service should pay more to publishers and artists for using their songs and for actual calls to ban it in the us over its chinese ownership and security and privacy fears. Well people like marketplace own. Hey super alvarado are finding that in quarantine. It's just kind of fun. More than three hundred million people downloaded tiktok in the first quarter of this year. That's fifty percent more than last quarter and total two billion downloads. Laura pearson a student at usc who happens to be my roommate started hearing huge buzz about tiktok ride before her spring break. Her friends were sending her lots of links sketches and dance videos. So she downloaded the out thinking. Yeah nice easy way to kill some quarantine time. It's like this cute little app. You can record videos. She started to spend more and more time on tiktok when she wasn't zooming into her classes soon enough. She started producing. She recruited arlene. Pereira are other roommate. She's of course also home from her teaching job at el camino college here in southern california. They chose zico's any song. So we spent the whole night trying to figure out how to do the dance and have a certain level of swag arse it out of the way in the living room wall. My roommate's discovered how much time it takes to perfect tiktok dance and that just gave me a whole new perspective on tiktok that you see these super silly videos but boy is it quite the production darlene. Then we all decided well. Let's do this. We invested in a really nice phone Tripod with a Cute Little Bluetooth control on Amazon. You can even find bundles.

Introducing the Movie Director Game with Sam Esmail
"We have a special sort of conversation. Here we're joined by Mister Robot. Creator the Creator of the film comet The director of Amazon's homecoming. Yes Sam. Esmail saying what's up. Hello how are you? I'm so excited to be here. I'm such a fan. Oh that's very sam. You wanted to play a game with us. I did now. I want to know why you wanted to play that game with us and I also want you to explain the game. Well explaining it okay. I'll let me start by saying I'm a huge film. Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well
"el camino" Discussed on Bay Curious
"If you live or work on the San Francisco Peninsula you probably spent a lot of time on El Camino Royale Road that runs from San Francisco to San Jose through the center of many towns. Along the way. It's one of California's best known roads. And if you grew grew up here you probably learned about it in school. The story goes L. Community out is an ancient road built by the Spanish to connect the twenty one missions along on California's coast. But here's the thing that story. It's not exactly true. This big curious. I'm Olivia Allen Price Today. We're bringing you a story that first aired on our show back in twenty seventeen about the real history of El Camino real support for bay. Curious comes from Sierra. Nevada Brewing Company family owned operated and argued over since one thousand nine hundred reminding listeners to think for themselves but drink with others. SIERRA SIERRA NEVADA DOT COM K. Committees Rachel myrow senior editor of the Silicon Valley Newsdesk hit the trail with this week's question. Asker we met at mission in Santa Clara because this story dates all the way back to the Spanish colonial era in California. My name is Debbie Tori. I live in Campbell California Tori aspect curious the question. What can you find out about the El Camino real history? My name is Robert Cinco. wits professor of history at Santa Clara University sank quits is the man who can answer that and then some starting with the perhaps surprising truth that there were many El Camino rails all over the land. Spain used to control in the WHO world from seventeen sixty nine to eighteen twenty one royal roads. That was what you would call the main roads in any particular area because technically all of us belong to the King of Spain but wait. I read on wikipedia that this El Camino real but one in silicon valley is part of the historic mission trail on ancient fro that connects the Spanish missions. Like a string of pearls along the California coast. Also I'm pretty sure I heard somewhere possibly in school that the distance between each mission. It's supposed to be about a day's journey. What happened has to do more with southern California than it does with with Northern California a by about the eighteen seventies? As you get more and more Anglo Americans coming in the southern California and the the angle population really increases With the arrival of the railroads in Los Angeles listen the eighteen eighties now in America. There's a rich tradition of just got here yesterday. People concocting romantic origin myths and a number of influential fluential southern Californians wanted one of their own. They looked around and saw crumbling. Spanish missions twenty one of them stretching from the Mexican border all the way north to Sonoma's. Here's the story is told in Nineteen Fifty one promotional film for Greyhound buses called Freedom Highway Bridge the same road. The Spaniards followed almost two hundred years ago. Only they call it El Camino real kings highway. China imagine how was on horseback. Of course what was really going on here was the enslavement of local tribespeople. who were reeling under? The impact of European diseases forced religious religious conversion and the destruction of their entire way of life. Not that our question Asker Debbie Tori or I learned much of this in the fourth grade which is when a lot of California school. Children studied the subject. You're right they did glamorize it thinking it was a wonderful. The mission passed that they've construct was a fantasy past ROIC missionaries happy contented. Indians Fandango is all over the place. You know the Spanish mich- often enough you read and textbook that they blazed trails but they didn't blaze trails. They follow trails. That had already been developed by the indigenous people up and down the California coast I but at the turn of the twentieth century few people wanted that version of history. They wanted something fun. Happy Exotic groups like the landmarks club and the native daughters of the Golden West pushed to reframe collection of dirt roads into a rediscovered king's highway and the Automobile Appeal Club of southern California kind of sides. This fantasy past is a great way of getting people to buy drive automobiles and so what they do. is they begin. The push the notion that there was one central road which they named the commuter rail that connected the missions they began to push the notion commissions were located A day's journey from each other. You know which kind of when you think about. It makes them motels rather than what they actually were. Agents of simulation immolation of of the native peoples so wind in northern California. Play along with this southern California Fantasy Sanca wits says the concept caught on with wealthy Californians leg Jane Stanford wife of the Real Road Barren Lewin Stanford and wealthy Catholics like San Francisco. Mayor James Phelan Eland. They wanted the Spanish missions restored to something like their former glory. Lot of them were in really sad shape. If you look at pictures from the eighteen sixties exceeds eighteen seventies. The missions are crumbling. Consider this if the Spanish revival movement had not happened we might be looking at a string ruins along the California coast standing inside the sumptuous renovated mission. Santa Clara on the Modern Day campus of Santa Clara University Tori agrees. I'm actually kind of speechless. Listen here it's it's just magnificent. I feel like I'm in Europe. Then we hop in a modern day car and drive a half an hour to mission San Jose which is actually in modern day Fremont think of it as a mini mission road trip focused on the South Bay and here in Fremont we find one of the most historically accurate restorations in the California commission system and the on site museum is not to miss. debby Tori grabs a fact based map of the missions from the gift shop. So so debbie do you see yourself going on a mission tour. After this as a matter of fact yes. Tory took her kids on a mission tour like this years ago but told them a lot of Steph. She genuinely believed the turns out to be bunk. Her grandkids will get the truth. But Rachel I still have a question so every now. And then. When I'm driving along El Camino scenerio I will see a shepherd's crook on the side of the road and from the Crook hangs a bell that I have been told Marks this historic historic trail. Are those what's deal with spells. I guess those also stem back to the same period of time when people I came up with El Camino Rail There was a wife of a foundry owner in Los Angeles who conveniently suggested that she could manufacture these handy bells that were sort of reminiscent. I'm a nuisance of the Spanish era. Up and down the new route that they had just created Mrs Arbitrage C. E. Forbes and and in one thousand nine hundred ninety six cal trans decided to resurrect the bells So you'll spot him one or two miles apart on a variety of state routes because of course there isn't one route reality fantasy. Don't quite match up REX payer dollar's have helped to feed this fantasy fans. Yes well the taxpayer dollars to feed it the first time too so people are making money off of this. Yes this is a a two million dollar testament to the enduring appeal wheel of a made up version of history. All right well senior editor. Rachel myrow thank you so much thank you.

"el camino" Discussed on CarStuff
"Visit autozone DOT com today to learn more get in the zone own autozone on the way to the alchemy knows demise were a lot of pitches internal and external for ideas of resurrecting directing or reinventing the El Camino and that makes sense because since its first generation the community has continually been kinda reinvented. There's people try to figure out should be more truck. Should this be more car. Can we put these two things together. In an effective way so the end of the El Camino Aurora in eighty seven shortly before that production was moved to Mexico so the writing was on the wall there early eighties. The S. ten was introduced used so it was filling that small truck category Fast forward to the nineties when all when some of these concepts started showing up the SUV V was starting to creep into the picture. Then for it had the Bronco and Chevy had the blazer and GMC Jimmy and those cars evolved and really the manufacturers haven't looked back since then. Yeah you're right you're right before the demise of the El Camino and even after It went to Mexico to die. Yeah I like Ambrose Pierce I even before that occurred. GM in particular kept captain reworking ideas for possible resurrection of the El Camino New iterations thereof. And so on in nineteen ninety two. They unveiled this concept car. El Camino I. It was more or less a pickup version of the Chevy Lumina. You can imagine how ugly ugly it looked. Just take new. Imagine that folks yes correct. You Win the prize was just as ugly as you. Imagine There was a Pontiac G. A. S. T. concept that they showed at the two thousand eight New York auto show. I'm GONNA show you this when Kurt what so you think just initial reactions. S- pretty ugly Azteca ugly. Yeah Oh wow. That's our new that you know what I propose. That's it's our new rating system especially ugly. It's Ashtec it's just try it. You know it's the platypus problem. It's it's trying to be the two different things at that point however I would argue that for a time during a certain period of the El Camino Gino's rise in its fall it did somehow it may not one hundred percent but somehow he kind of like seventy to eighty percent nailed. What it was trying to do you know what I mean you know? It's not a secret that I would love for the El Camino to return. I think it that'd be cool if it was done right. I don't think we are alone and yearning for the return of at least a small pickup light dede pickup aid even the El Camino. But Hey we can't get too greedy here but the small truck. It seems like if you you want in this goes for cars to if you want a small truck or a small car they're either comically small or their way too big. You can't reach behind you and tap on on the glass then you're not driving a small truck if you look at things like the best small trucks for twenty nineteen. Can you know you go to go to any auto blog or Even Jellab Knicker Carmax. Whatever you'll see that a lot of them still have extended cabs having an extended cab to me does not make it a small truck? We're seeing this trend in a happened with the many cooper as well L. Zina's trend toward bigger and bigger things there's this mission creep in the footprint of a vehicle. I am not in any way shape or form. You're saying that there's something wrong with big vehicles. You need vehicles with that horsepower without firepower. Sometimes but like you're singing singing man for anybody who wants a small pickup truck sold to Cedar. Okay maybe with that pretend middle see beat the no one ever wants to use. So let's just call it a two seater if you want one of those right now. You don't have a ton of viable alternatives. Before were I was brought out cry asleep and returned to car stuff here. I was listening to some of the recent episodes That you and Scott Dine and one thing that I think is particularly relevant to this conversation is the earlier episode about the Ford Ranger since it was Out Commission from two thousand eleven. You guys asked a really good question Lee. Will this ranger actually be the small pickup truck truck. People want to just pull this up on our car stuff community facebook page. And we're seeing some pretty good conversations here rudy rudy notes that the ranger raptor is available as a factory model and has a pretty good review of it says. It's tough as nails includes all the extras Alex. S says the new Rangers too big and too expensive. Whatever happened to the small basic simple trucks? There you go and I think that's what they're uh I think that's what they're going for. And you can see the conversation when Alex says continues on conversation says the new Rangers are the size is the F.. One fifty used to be at a one a truck that big a just want the old ranger size. It's this unfortunate that we don't get to decide what the automakers make take a lot of the options include in the in the cars. Now they're outdated several years after their introduced like the displays and things like that It just seems like we're steering in that direction towards more automation in cars. Having a basic pickup truck doesn't fit into that model. I hate to say it but There may be a day. We're not driving our cars anymore. I hear you man and it's something that honestly bugs me more more than a little bit because this is an ongoing dilemma. Had here if you okay. Let's get apocalyptic real quick so imagine there's something whereas some sort of global event occurs where there's like an emp Ryan Electromagnetic Pulse Disabled Sables all computers electronic devices. What have you older cars past? A certain age will work because they're purely mechanical cannibal devices. I've been looking increasingly toward getting a new car. I hate to do. I'm probably going to keep the Monte Carlo. I'll make it a fulltime beater but But I've been looking at this and I you know one thing that's disconcerting is there's this tendency or there's this increasing creasing trend of cars being made such that. The owner is not allowed to work on certain aspects or components minutes of the system and to be that that shows us that that is just one aspect of our society's increasing move move away from an ownership society toward a service society technologies like that already. Computers are becoming aware. You can't replace replace components anymore. Everything's affixed to this circuit board. Basically so yeah. Cars are going that way too in the design of the vehicle they can say it performs a certain way against this kind of gas mileage. They can regulate certain components of the card. Just the last longer I mean a lot of it is for our own good true But alarm does restricts Restricts a lot of the things you can do a lot of the modifications that you can do exactly never thought it would be a hot take to say. I think that when you buy something you should own it and you should be able to do what you want with it. I never million years thought that would be a controversial opinion but but apparently a lot of car manufacturers disagree with me I. I wonder what they think about the El Camino too and I'm I'm giving. I'm dragging them a little bit but A lot of these high level manufacturing decisions are made after extensive research. You know what I mean so you and I are talking talking about what we like. What we want is drivers? And what they're thinking about is a decision that could make or lose billions of dollars lawyers for them. You know what I mean. So they're coming at it from a different direction. Well and also when we get nostalgic about cars when car fans get nostalgic about cars the state tend to think of the older days as being the better days beautiful the engines were more powerful sounded. Better the exhaust smells calls. You know as time has gone on though cars have gotten a lot more fuel efficient. You can now buy a car new or used this car very few miles on it and you could drive it relatively maintenance free for one hundred and fifty two hundred thousand miles before you would have to change James before you'd have to consider a major repair as long as you do. Your basic maintenance yeah fluids things like that spark plugs filters and all that that stuff you're good to go and now that was has not been the case in the past we've gotten to this point now where tolerances are. We're just so strict that is really making better cars in a way but it is also taking some of that romanticism away. I always think of now. I try to try to ask this question. which cars are we going to look at and thirty forty fifty years and say like man that car is classic? I think about that too. You know it's also a It's a function of time. You're you're bringing up some really great points here man because So there were there were other vehicles around. During the reign of the model t multi is widely considered a classic. It's a function of its age. It's also a function of its prevalence is big quality. There were just so many model ts around that. You're more likely to find one in the wild so with that in mind maybe word asked but see what would be would be a a a an interesting example so the Honda civic right I Honda onto civic comes out in seventy two and it becomes a it eventually becomes the for number years. The the most popular Buehler car in the United States like several decades down a but when it becomes the most popular car in the United States it also becomes one of the most oh stolen vehicles in the United States because you can chop it down and you can sell the parts in there will always be someone to buy it because they their odds of owning a Honda civic or needing repair one or so much higher so I wonder what a Honda civic eventually classic. It's tough because now we're we're trying to think what future historians future car buffs will will explore. No and what they will they will value like. I'M GONNA be honest man. I know I keep whingeing immonen about this Monte Carlo this is automotive Albatross around my neck but the fact of the the fact of the matter is that I am going to keep it and wait. Wait until I can get those special license plates man and not have to take it to emissions ever. You know what I mean. It's a good look so I'm GONNA at least keep that. Keep that beater until it's an antique. And then you know I I don't know maybe when I'm eighty I can sell it. Yeah I mean car collecting in the future. You know again this. It's hard to predict. What will that be? Will the El Camino be back. Eventually who knows. It's just not looking good. It's not looking good for the El Camino. It's not looking good for the small truck but we.

"It's becoming more and more muscle car. Also you know kind of following the market at the time but it still has this pickup truck bed. That's becoming more and more of a legacy right. Sort sort of like an interesting novelty attached to the El Camino. So there's something that happens right around. Nineteen seventy what you're getting at would would be fuel regulations fuel a more fuel. Economy centric mindset in the United States. I don't think the gas crisis had fully fully kicked in yet but the writing was on the wall. The car was changing forever and American car companies were about to jump on the bandwagon or or get left behind. This was it. This was the end of the the muscle car as we know it so as we knew it as we knew it yet. So in seventy seventy one Lower Octane unleaded fuel. Mandates are in effect in this means that the L. Cameos Amino from seventy one on star using lower compression engines right and then we see oddly enough this despite these mandates we see that The GMC spirit is introduced this year. which is a TMC's counterpart to del Camino and you know other than those regulations not too much like fundamental well? There aren't too many fundamental shifts in design or inspects until we get to the fourth generation which I know a lot of us. I listing of the waiting for the fourth generation was from nineteen seventy three to nineteen seventy seven so nine hundred. Seventy three saw dramatic redesign of El Camino at still still was based on the Chevelle Zalin wagon and it was the largest El Camino to this point ever produced. I probably the largest CELCOM. You know everybody's because I believe the next generation's little smaller yeah front. Discs are now also standard in seventy three so benn. Why in particular do you say that? This generation is special special in terms of our story here. This version of the El Camino is one that I think a lot of people growing age are probably familiar. Millier with this is also. I've got some personal bias here. Kirk because this is also the first El Camino that I had experience experience with and that was a nineteen I wanNA say was I WANNA say was a seventy six or the quad headlights lights. My father had gotten into a very serious argument. When the guy was getting this this El Camino from and the argument which was with a co-worker viz went this way? The coworker said. Let me just give this to you. Just take it out of my yard. My wife is so pissed that this thing sitting here it takes like you know it takes like a Cordo oil. They get it anywhere. It's in bad. Shape is what we it's huge P. O. S.. Since we're a family show that means piece of stuff off piece of stink. Whatever you WANNA call it and so on the other side of this? My Dad Neil man is like say no. I can't what do that we have to have the title there. SPN exchange of money. I WANNA give you at least a hundred bucks and so after they had this this drag out argument of just take it. I'll feel bad I will just let me give you some money as became like our work vehicle for Taking care of the yard moving moving stuff around and this thing was in my in my mind Old when we got the scene was my mind our flintstones car because the shotgun seat had a hole in the undercarriage that had plywood over kept trying convinced. My Dad to let me move the plywood. The light you know how old I was at the time so that I could do the Flintstones by which yes it it is as dumb an idea as it sounds today. The idea was like I'm GonNa put my feet through it and Iran along with the car The the reason I still have feet today is because thank God. There was an adult around to convince me They took a very very interesting tact with this. They said it didn't try to convince me that I couldn't do it or tell me they couldn't do it. They did tell me obviously but they didn't try to convince me. The the data itself was a bad idea because of the physics involved. Instead they convinced me the first off. They told me they. Would you know from the era of corporal punishments. The they make me a clear. It'd be consequences if I tried to do this. And then they also got my head man and they convinced me that the Flintstones was a crappy cartoon no no and by doing that you know they made it on cool. I wouldn't do this but this thing. At a drinking problem with oil and it it was one of those things things where we thought you know. Forget Blue Book value. Because whenever you're fixing a used car you always want to compare it to the value the vehicle right right and this thing was scrap metal that happened to be held together by duct tape. Wire some prayers to a higher power And you know eventually eventually My Dad ended up giving it away but I will always remember that seventy six El Camino because I was certain certain known as a kid at the time but I was certain that when I got to be sixteen years old this would be. The car is going to drive. I thought I was going to be like hot stuff. You you know high school parking lot. Yeah but you you also add some experience a growing up with El Camino right. I did I did. I WANNA rewind the second and ask view if there's a story as to why that whole was in the floorboard on the passenger side you know it was clearly not an intentionally intentionally made whole. ill look kinda like rusty. Ross I you know what I don't know I don't know the story of the Flintstones Shotgun Hole I love you know how about this. I will check back everybody on that because the weirdest nice things seem normal. When you're looking back in my in my thirties and thinking yeah it's unusual for a car to have a hole in the undercarriage? There's like that well did. Did y'all drive it around other than from here to there around the house did y'all drive it out to the store and yeah like maybe maybe around the block walk and then community so it wasn't related daily driver bill or something. Yeah no no no. No I'm like you would haul Saad in it and stuff like that. Yeah I feel like those types of cars. People used to have those types of cars. Oh for sure and not many people retain a car now just to kind of do you know what I mean like the hole in the floor right right. The beat the beater so the era of the beater was kind of over. This is an interesting thing that you bring up and it touches on a larger concept here. A you're right. A lot of people just have a daily driver now right and I think part of that is because we know that the entry level price for a new car. Don't ever buy a brand new car by the way we know the entry level price for newer car Just sedan not even a bunch of bells and whistles that price seems to continually rise and maybe part of it is that we also see more people living in cities so they're living with less land I think I would like to think that the death of the beater has it's been a the news of the death of the beater to quote. Mark Twain has been greatly exaggerated because in rural areas in the countryside and stuff. You still still need a vehicle like that. You know what I mean. You still have to go off the road you have to go into a field or you have to haul Some messy heavy stuff and and what are what are you gonNA do. You're going to take a nice car. You're going to screw up the nice car. That's how I always think of it I don't have a beater right now Wait no wait no. That's that's not true. I do have a beater. It's my daily driver. It's my body Karl. I'm so my personal story has to do with the next generation so we're looking at the fifth generation Asian. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. The nineteen seventy eight to nineteen eighty seven so now they're done with the V8's right right. They are done with the V8's now it's based on the Malibu Labou or at least in the early part of this generation was based on the Malibu. This is the one that I think of. When I think of El Camino my grandfather pretty much exclusively drove if this we used to do a lot of fishing okay so this is perfect for carrying all that gear and going out into the on the tight dirt roads? No this this one is based on the Malibu correct back to the the start of this generation in nineteen seventy eight They'll Camino had. Its own unique chassis for for the first time so it wasn't based off of that actual undercarriage of any particular car You can Kinda tell by looking at US different stature. It it doesn't seem like a car stature. Yeah Yeah So. This is where we see this fifth generation based on on The Chevy Malibu Fru. Weil it's generally based on the GM G platform or the G body and the day day of the muscle car. El Camino is long gone by this point right and now people are focusing more on Connie fuel ram when and when we say okay people here. We mean car manufacturers don't necessarily mean drivers because anybody wanted a muscular El Camino is holding onto it for dear life right. The speaking of fuel from eighty to eighty four a diesel engine was included and they'll Camino was an oldsmobile. Engine believe it became known for reliability issues however it did have some signs of life back to towards the muscle car towards the SS. Even though this generation Theresa El Camino is based on the Malibu there were SS models made by Choo Choo customs commissioned by Chevrolet to make these cars Choo Choo Choo. Customs was based in Chattanooga Tennessee and the El Camino that they produced had more of a Monte-carlo Front End A lot of people may be familiar with this but it technically he is the same body. Same generation as the Malibu based El Camino just kind of has a different nose live on it. There were no performance modifications. This was purely Visual aesthetic upgrades but very iconic looking vehicles it.

Mid Fall Air completely lately unable to influence this madman next to me is about to do but hey what can you do. Welcome to another wild ride here in the land of Pasta Been. Can you hear me over there yes Kurt I can hear you. Thank you again for having me back on the air although I am not a hundred percent on board with that description is unhinged coffee fueled lunatic. I cannot object to its accuracy we had a lot a lot of conversations off air. You and I Didn't we after our previous episode on the cars of breaking bad. Well yes we did We talked about about. Let's see we we. We really took some potshots at the poor old pontiac. Aztec in particular but during that exploration ration- you and I started talking about some cars. We Love And some cars. We hate a longtime car stuff. Tough listeners will recall my Very very complicated. Hate hate relationship With particular minivan no known as the Honda Odyssey. You and I have talked about this about this on air last time. I don't think we were on air when we're talking about it and since then I had one one negative experience with an odyssey may be in line with some of yours but please continue. Please come come with me. You know it was just It was one of those corrode situations where you're just trying to make some progress and there's this one person that doesn't want you to and they just happened to be in a Honda Odyssey. You know what happened the words out. They know that you and I worked together. Now telling you there is a vast insidious conspiracy I you. Oh you know jokes aside I wanNA thank everybody over the years who is semi wonderful email about Wonderful facebook messages tweets and so on about about the Honda Odyssey about many fans in general. And there's a very weird commercial That some of Your Co workers and I filmed a while back. DOC ABOUT MINIVANS. I've gotTa Send Your Mabley. Posted on car stuff's facebook page to But with that being said jokes aside. Here's the beef with Kahanda Odyssey's when you buy a Honda knows the true story Kirk when you buy a Honda Odyssey at a dealership you know you get the the engine wise. It's pretty good vehicle right SPEC wise pretty good vehicle. If you're a person who feels like there's no such thing as too many cup holders Honda Odyssey that's the the ride for you But if you have a problem with the price point or something like that the dealer takes you into a back room and they say hey. We're going to give you a discount on on this van so long as you let us install this one extra feature and this feature recognizes. When there's a guy named Ben Bolan in a Monte-carlo within about a half mile of you and it slows your vehicle down a make sure Like this weird autonomous system. Make sure that you're directly in a friend of his car and you know understandably people buy a Honda Odyssey. You're like well you're gonNA Knock Five K.. Off The price then. Of course I'll do it sure. So that's my beef with that yeah. They must've must've updated the the software on that. Yeah well what's A. What's a car What's a car that you particularly love? Kurt well Off off the top of my head El Camino comes to mind You've hit a pine the topic of today's episode so by the scenes things This is this is a weird way by scenes when you and I were working on our previous episode on the cars of breaking bad We also talked about the the spin off films. Breaking bad came out called El Camino and at some point. I don't know if we ever mentioned this on Air Man Dan but at some point we were both baffled that they're never been a car stuff episode on El Camino or as we call it here in the US the El Camino Camino which should be hilarious. Anyone who speaks a lick of Spanish. Because what we're saying is the the road you know it's like saying ATM machine or Orvin Number Ri- vehicle identification number number the El Camino man. By the way I'm GonNa Continue Calling the El Camino movie the The the alchemy of is a fascinating vehicle. It's it's sometimes like A. It's like a platypus of the road. You know what I mean. It's not quite fish. It's not quite foul. It's something different. Something unique a mix tape and you and I have some personal stories about the El Camino but I have the following proposition. Why don't we start with the origin story of the actual vehicle vehicle which may surprise some people some eighties? Babies may be surprised. How old this vehicle actually is? El Camino is introduced. The first generation was introduced in nineteen eighteen fifty nine. It was basically a response to Ford's Ranchero But even before that in Australia in the thirties a created this this vehicle known as the Coupe Utility. So the idea of a car that had some of the attributes of a truck The idea that was around for a while before they started showing up in America and even in the early Fifties Chevy and Ford made light-duty drums like the Chevy's made a truck called the task force. It was a light duty pickup truck but the El Camino brought in some of that I guess the elegant lines of the late fifties and early sixties the chrome trim some of the more visually appealing aspects of the sedan's at the time yet you can look at some pictures of the first generation El Camino and you can clearly see the aesthetic. You're talking about here. Kirk I do. I have to also confess. I have a weakness for those Those flowing lines that space-age retro-futurism so common in Ford's and Chevy's of the fifty s and into the sixties A. We do have a previous episode on car stuff about utes in Australia and their origin origin for anybody wants to check that out. There's a really cool quote that you found about the youth as well of from the like the way it was marketed in Australia. Stralia right yes so It was Farmer's wife in Victoria Australia she desired a car that quote to go to church in on Sunday in which to carry our pigs tomorrow on Mondays. And so that encapsulates the entire concept here. You know what I mean the the idea that instead of buying two separate vehicles for two separate specific task right you can buy something something that fulfils Both of those functions. This is a question that will come back to right. Because what we're what we're GONNA WANNA see here is going to be ultimately a battle between some of those functions like is a daily driver or your. You know your good-looking car right. Your Business car. Is that the same thing as your haller your work vehicle. The folks who made the Cameo carrier and the folks who made the El Camino and the voter made the utes in general. Were there answer due to that was yes it can be the same thing. Forward the future.

Camino movie than actual El Camino which I don't know about you rob it's never been on my list to own alchemy our you in El Camino guy did you grow up around El Camino definitely not definitely not couldn't pick an El Camino out of the lineup Oh believe me I can they where I grew up they were definitely a thing and I a hybrid between a pickup truck and a station wagon I mean I don't even know what the appeal is but todd sure liked it indefinitely played a prominent role in this movie such would you can understand why it was titled El Camino not an outcome you know guy if you have todd's lifestyle El Camino is a great car group perfect for they were todd is who they weren't thinking there's been some unusual cars in the breaking bad universe don't forget Walter White used to drive a Pontiac Aztec exactly exactly we talked a little bit about when we podcast at you and I hear I post show recaps about breaking bad we podcast about better call Saul Pontiac Aztec was in some ways representative of Walter White's soul became beaten up and and brutalized is so if that's true of cars our souls Todd El Camino man through and through always in need of a car where you can just stash housekeepers body in the back along with your pet that you're keeping right all right so we're gonNA talk through the El Camino movie and give you our thoughts on this I tried to sort of stay in my own bubble with my thoughts on this I I haven't done a lot of research into the reaction to it I haven't really either I don't know specifically among the Phantom I've seen one or two critical reactions but I haven't seen how fans are responding to it and I think that's key for this project because to me it's clearly a love letter to fans at breaking bad a lot of fun Easter eggs that we can talk about and get into uh without spoiling everything that will happen which we will do as well but this is a movie that could have really screwed up a lot of what people assigned a youtube the ending of breaking bad I could have changed significantly the way we felt about characters or where they ended up instead of doing that I think it just put us in a position where the show in the movie got to execute the way the show did with a lot of capers and some great shots we got to revisit some of our favorite characters and we ended in a place I think most of us thought bad could've ended in so all in all I think very successful project so just a quick heads up before we get to talking about the movie and any I know you are back a busy podcasting on a number of shows including mister robot for the final season I am here at Po show APPs Josh Wigley and I have podcast about nearly every episode of Mister robot through its four season run it is entering its four season season two episode two layer the Sunday night the weekend of this El Camino movie so we're really looking forward to that and we will be podcasting about every episode of season four's we do that this show that I think really fits podcasting model where we can theorize and speculate and really breakdown individual scenes we've had a lot of fun doing that over the course of the and so you can definitely check those podcasts out if you're a fan of that show you I know rob and Josh podcast hero recaps extensively about another oh that ended its final season recently and that was certainly fun to theorize and breakdown how did that go for you how was the end of game of thrones nut hopefully they'll make a movie a couple of years later and then we'll explain some of the other stuff that was going we'll see Aria in her own movie the following the game of thrones finale El Camino del Rey the Kings road yeah that would be great yeah we we probably will see game of thrones movies seems like an inevitability we saw this month at Downton Abbey movie was released so this this seems to be a model you've got a successful TV show out there people want Hashtag content let's make a movie that set in the TV show universe and I think breaking bad certainly occupy that space really well and does itself credit I think we're GonNa see more of these things it wouldn't surprise me to see a game of thrones movie what else is going on here apple show recaps are Rabbi Josh and Jessica lease are podcasting about the walking dead another one of your favorites the walking dead into season ten yeah the new season his back and so is Jessica and then she's with Josh talking about the walking dead recaps plus Josh and Mike Are Continuing to do the lost rewatch as well Josh is going to wrap it up secession as well right now so a lot going on a rope oh show recaps are you a succession Guy Rob I I I think I would be but I have not gotten into it yet definitely recommend that you give it a chance I don't know that there's a better show on TV right now in terms of doing what succession does in terms of you buying in two characters. Why am I buying into what these people are doing? It's really high drama it's sort of like arrested development meets Shakespeare these families backstabbing each other applying this just a completely unlikeable area but you still feeling bad for them it's really really well done show and anyone who is listening to this and is a fan of breaking bad would probably like checking it out it's not for everybody because there really isn't anyone to root for on that show too much but it is a really fascinating show definitely worth checking out okay Antonio so we now know that Jesse Pink Man is off to Alaska courtesy of the idea from another one of our favorites Mike Urban Trout yeah what do you think why do you think Mike Trout was a fan of Alaska he articulated a little bit here but is this something you think Mike Urban Trout grew up as a fan Velasco is this something you life he wished he'd had lived is this something you think you speculated about when he was younger are there a lot of minor league baseball operations in Alaska they do play the midnight baseball game they're down yeah so maybe maybe a fan of the midnight this baseball video pick up anything from June oh yeah that would that would be a good place where Mike you know it was cool it's good to see Jonathan banks again I just think the guy should stay out of the sun but when you're gonNA do you take Jonathan banks out of the Sun for only so long I have so many questions about the different flashbacks where are you able to somebody who has done you know our can you place where that was in the timeline that scene between Jesse and Mike I can't place it directly what I would say generally is based on what Jesse was articulating their about wanting to get out I think it's probably somewhere in the early part of season five when I see is ready to retire because of everything that happened with todd and withdrew sharp when the child was unfortunately casualty of meth train highs Jesse was ready to get out of the drug game at that point and that that seems like a round when this is happening because of his emotions and mentality I would place it earlier and I don't think there's a way to really place it later so I think it's around that point in season five when Jesse is particularly these ready to get out of the game that makes sense that said the location I believe is similar or the exact location where Mike ultimately meet his untimely demise at the hands of Walter White later on goads later in season five so this is Mike Meeting space that is fouled by Walter White later this is not a scene that I recall taking place in breaking ride yeah so this is one of those ones they shot for this movie where any of the flashbacks things actually were Fr- lifted from breaking bad like Jesse with Jane gene or any of the other pieces that we saw from the alternate flashbacks not that I can think of the scene with Walter White is definitely not although it you could put it in the episode where it would fit and it would fit really well to the point where Jesse's in his hotel room at the beginning of that scene cool down here he's in a bathtub with ice and he's got the air conditioning all the way down because that comes right after he and Walter were stuck out in the desert for several days worried they were never gonna make it back because the the the Winnipeg ran out of gas over the battery died and they weren't able to get back so that fits directly into the timeline and similarly with Jane that's affect flashback that's part of another flashback I think like we don't necessarily see some of those moments in the when Jane is big and Season Two breaking Badger we know what happens to her in season three there is a flashback to a trip she and Jesse took and think this is tacked onto that flashback it is not part of the show proper there are some other flashes like Jesse being hit with a hose by the Nazis stuff like that that maybe you could say were loosely tied but I don't really think anything like that these flashbacks were present and breaking bed yeah the flashbacks were important though and if I was GONNA say like in terms of like the what were the things that I enjoyed the most in the movie I feel like that ever almost all of my favorite parts were things that were happening in the flashbacks that's that's interesting idea vinnie comprehension as to why that is I would say for me not my biggest concern watching the movie the first time through is that as I said earlier maybe they I was concerned about how it would end I was concerned that they were going to ruin this ending for Jesse pink man that he was going to he was going to be murdered and or arrested or something really bad was going to happen to him as a result of what happened in the movie greatest concern throughout any of the new scenes was okay this is where it goes south for Jesse like this is where it's GonNa go bad for Jessie so of course the flashback scenes were be like they were like okay nothing bad can happen here I know he's not GonNa die I know todd when they're hiding this body in the desert I know todd's not going to shoot him or he's not gonna she tied for what happened so I think maybe it was the the idea that there were no real stakes in those scenes that made them appealing for me is it similar for you I didn't think about it in terms of that there were no stakes I just feel like that you know feral Jesse on the run just you know was not as interesting of character for me I guess than some of the other colorful characters that we have to see through the flashbacks with exception of the.

"Vince Gilligan he's still got one eye on those the moments in one eye on like the longer arc of a of a series or the entire thing and taken out institute of Gusts men and allege you get so point where how do you salvage this the only way we can salvage days is by having leverage and that means we've go kill gusts police station why there's lots of themes around people taking dumps big moment some big breaking bad but that moment where gus cartoonish like just every now and then to remind you that your entertainment and it's incredible because they don't seem to retract Skylab in the poll in season was a season five I believe she's she wades into the poll solve light completely emotionless and it's across the help is the help she's got literally her law abiding so they just completely gone on a gun yeah I mean I think her character art kinda gets overlooked because of Brian Winston but she has a similar character arc has self and it's utterly believable and incredible and hair and Bryan Cranston really just carry the entire show to be fast track then he's doing maybe doesn't get the appreciation it deserves although ever forget the appreciation it deserves breaking bad doesn't it I think allies of bitchiness on that and to be honest she she gives as good as she gets and you think issue victim is she a thing is very complex and Schuyler in this TV show but that again that moment where she aiding salad and wolters like.

"Yeah constantly tugging between the two which is the genius opinion now completely agree on that I think there's an element of thinking about like you site though termites but also he never allows the table to be set for loan so like for example when that starts make a bit of money the local drug dealers and built great relationships with some great but I have a relationship with gusts and everything was good that will making great money they were churning out there blue meth day was not chance in hell getting cool but then all of a sudden the tables get turned tabs flipped over gus is all of a sudden the problem because espn going off the rails and has to make a decision does he does he stick with Jesse or does he go with gus and that moment where he crashed the car go to make sure that there's a chance in hell you could ever replace us and just the decisions that have to happen for out all can the series like say it kept you the suspense was building up and up but ultimately that led to what would probably one of my favorite moments is is gus is death the half face explosion again the amazing took a big dump in the.

"The world of news and Jennifer Aniston should shut the hell up in a cloud where there are already too many film podcast easily so I think he's going to be hilarious and actually seen him in combat because it's going to accommodate again we'll talk about so he is going to be funny there's lots of interesting stuff here's Michael Spendy don't necessarily associate with comedies Elizabeth Moss I personally would not associate of convince Bart in is this year I fought there are some interesting timing in her delivery and stuff and it made it a comedy which I thought was fucking great from that perspective as well so I'd Sphinx he's amazing offering effect I've seen here and so forth now that sounds amazing I kind of love Tyco. Ott's seems to be able at that moment is a real moment he can do what everyone is right this is the kind of story wouldn't get picked up maybe by by a huge you know huge company or inefficient but he's obviously head it and got passion and and run move and he's got licensed to do that which is amazing wishy solve probably got off the of light these huge like four and another movies like that say Jefferson Patek Yup I honestly can't wait for this hour I saw cycle tweety every day someone posted up saying Elizabeth Moss would make an amazing joker and I totally see especially after her performance in us like some like a l. swelled Fenghua joker so maybe it's too soon to revisit that world but doing a favor La Joker movie with Elizabeth Moss playing bucks up psychopath and they've got my money if you WanNa if you're listening would get that done and so we were talking about the Matrix for the new matrix movie obviously that's we've got a bank holiday special about a couple of months ago where we talked about what we think they could do. lied about the idea what we are apprehensive about well just announced I cast switches Johari Abdul Matin second I pronounced that terribly but basically the bad guy in Akron but also impact mira instructing vipers hey was captain America Sam Falcons best night the guy who is the bachelor a he's been a bunch of other stuff as well concept appeared elsewhere he's been in but I finished icing curse what you think John Yeah he's he's having a moment as well he's solver market quality I think definitely holds matrix four in good stead. It's going to be an intriguing one this one feels like it could go one way are they ever want extreme could be completely dodgy and not worth the wait and it could be like just revolutionized the whole franchise maybe in a whole new stamp on it yes just to stay me one five a place public service announcement cost him as a young Morpheus because like I've kind of done with that wealth Kiana raves previous cast members will be coming back so that's interesting I've no idea what had been a guy of so but like you say this guy is such a good actor I saw him on Graham Norton a few months ago and he was just so shield relaxed and just a charming guy that you just you see good people and just want good people to do well by very much from him sire already hired that he gets a great role and I hope it's a great story to up to one zero more important that's hope so John You're star Trek Man I am not Z.. As you well know flatly by appreciate question but I did watch the latest star Trek trailer for Picard and I to get into the world just a few hundred hours to catch up on Yeah Nice looks really interested in what what was take as a trekkie thank you I'm a half tricky I liked the film's never really got into the TV showed are apparently discovery is every very good I am a massive fan of obviously John Picard I think is amazing they've got some the original costs to get back involved to start out on a farm or wine vineyard wherever it's just gonNa be like a one off drama thing about old man reflecting back on his life and we'll just be grateful it's their we've revisited a well which will be a famous some reviews like running this pod but in this trial you say that he gets back in the back in the swing of things he puts the soup back on and he gets back out there I mean yes obviously he is a little bit older than say he's he's one of them Naughty Age Group people out love tonight if there's any Patrick Stewart like enthusiasts out there at what when did he start going bold and looking can all can at what point did this like he's been cryogenically frozen in this state for about thirty years it's absolutely amazing I love the fact that he does the voice for he does voices in American that the FBI chief at I four someone during a Patrick impression until I actually looked at credit so I actually got Patrick Shirt that's amazing that's a hi I'm happy about this but if I was they showed he's number one was back in a meeting with him and wants aged really badly except Patrick and it just looks a bit weird but at the same time I'm just happy this is happening member berries old regained side site bringing on absolutely side just arapoff news we talked last week about will Farrell and Rymer going to be making a Christmas Carol Movie Bit more information has come out now it's going to be amused code but more interestingly this guy's been apple plus exclusive so if you on apple plus subscriber which figure product comes out at the end of this year around Saint John that Disney plus comes out I think only about three weeks so I she scary as well this is guaranteed if I finished that I have announced a movie or at least they've actually put some white and casting behind it anyway John Anymore excited or you fakeness just another nail in the coffin they still think it's GonNa be a family friendly romp and it's going to be incredible I think we're crying out for a really good quality Christmas okay so my hope is amazing we could do with one only seems to come around once every ten years nowadays so mm-hmm yeah let's let's hope fingers crossed I fought that fava crispus movie we got with Kurt Russell last year from net flicks I generally four that's probably like the is Christmas movie we've had in like ten years so maybe that well it was already dried out but the ads it sounds Kinda cool very funny people and musically can be funny if the right people so I think putting on apple classes just he gave a very did you see rhymer notes very funny happy birthday to Jackman on twitter he's birthday yesterday what do they just have to watch it. You can't take all the fun out check it how good guy side anyway this week and now any breaking bad fans now that this weekend is going to be fucking incredible for nearly everyone involved is controversy Camino we'll be doing our view of that in the next feature but we won't stay before just to build up the senses to lighten up the discussion on twitter account that you're on this week what your favorite breaking bad moments and a bunch of you've got back to me for a couple of replied back on the post and I wanted to talk to John L. favorite moments were and then we're going to review of El Camino John I'm GonNa tell you my number one moment first and then we'll just go go from there right so and I found fascinating was on twitter and it was the premium bill you had a Dean Morris is his name the guy who plays Asian Schroeder he was on the red card Pitt and he was there promoting Schneider brow the he's actually launched a beer company based on the is that he knows episode it's and Mark Hamill Randomly tweeted a picture at the same time saying I saute Norris I had to go up and get a selfie with him no one can be an antagonist tightness in the same way like this man has no I completely concur the guys absolutely sensational but nothing compares him is is that character arcs moment in take more than the moment when he is sitting on the taller and he's looking for a book and he sees ww and he puts it all together and say to turning the suspense is building it's palatable at this point you'll thinking fuck the amount of times he has nearly had while to white banks to rights and didn't even know it was brother-in-law and he is sitting on these tool at right now taking a dump and he has just put together now how that is suspenseful how is one of the key points of the series key points show is only because of his ability to bring Gravitas to that mom and the art direction the film and Infant kills is brilliant that is much hot minute the show I would definitely yeah that's a standout moment isn't it it's incredible I have to say it's a cliche but I think as I said many times for breaking bad got progressively better stayed at the high standard for the entire time which is why I count as the greatest TV chauvel time the ending I mean it's so believable and so F- F- slap the Fi- amazing is is the extending of any TV show 'cause you've had six series of build up to this climax ways this genius has concocted this vice to take out these neo Nazis I need just I mean and then smile on his face at the end I just think that is the most iconic ending to TV series of all time so I'd have to put my number one as as that because it gave you just he's such a sendoff true I'm one of the things I love because I watched the finale just before I watched El Camino just to kind of get in the mood and side because and we'll review to fill me set like literally moments after as well and how to handle that continuity I wanted to be in that mindset and the last thing that Walter does before the police come in sadly leaves swelled is that he goes just looks at this equipment he puts his hand on one the condenses and it's basically like here said okay from this way he said goodbye to his wife he said goodbye to his child he it goodbye to Jesse now I want to say goodbye to another love science that's the thing that has always driven a he has been it's been a barometer of his life he's been he's roadmap the moment he founded that company of his close friends and then was purchased out by that too when he turned his attentions being a teacher to them when he tried to apply his own logic and understanding he's cancer too damn what joy on a path about trying to find money to try and kill his cancer which led him to becoming Heisenberg oh it's all been around signs that's he he's live actually well actually superpower and he said goodbye to it I mind reputation of photos beautiful like excites Buf- sendoff speaking about the was in season two or free maybe when things are starting to come off the rows train him and he's macy's and he's pates home to try and block I fought pete we're GONNA sit down at eight some pizza and and Scott a wide open the door to him and he loses his rag and he's spice to be like on this aggressive Alpha male you lock you bitch and goes the frozen pizza and it's just the pacer perfectly timed lands on top of the roof I mean one of the things you can say about Brian listen is he's first and foremost comedic actor because if he stays on Malcolm in the middle of stuff but he manages to splice together that crazy oddball crazy wacky angry dad with on the fucking Gangsta scarface and hate that was just a moment of the crazy hilarious that that's why about the head on a Taurus I mean Oh my God yes if that Danny Trae Ho it is I mean that's iconic right the fight this Danny traders head as well mythbusters apparently debunked that could actually be possible but I think us announced the the iconic moment Ashley I mean all of those scenes in the desert where he still of negotiating these he's going off to these gangsta things in the desert I just loved that was there any more tense moments in TV than those moments especially with two Kern and and his dad's a mean the bell how is the second series where it starts with that kind of the bad in Nepal and very creepy the plane going above and none of it makes any sense and feed you a tiny bit more each episode until it does make sense and it's just it as from being completely weird alien and crazy and so on various states are like oh shit is genius the way all comes together and.

"Way will Smith accident got your applauded because he's actually done a really good job in my opinion it's really hard to it must be really hard to know only be a younger version of yourself well I do that in a context where y'all you and you're trying to capture what you were when you were twenty for a very very impressive acting and it's doubled off against each of it looks same as I mean we've all got reference points we'll grew up on will smith has referred to before he's my Halima Simpson I've grown up on that guy being on my screens for most of my life and he is the Will Smith I remember the twenty eight great job from that perspective what I have done a great job with is really making me care really make me believe it does touch on some interesting elements about what it means to be alive what it means to have a soul fix about blade runner two thousand four nine thousand grim that was a bit like what does that mean what does the ethics behind that but ultimately it's just crash-bang-wallop not much more inbetween I don't think we'll be getting a sequel and for that reason alone is going to be free out of five all the people in the world to come after me why would he send you the news so John Other things that dividing to fill me well it isn't just about what famous footballers wives are up to is the discussion about marvel potentially destroying cinema of see Mr Scorsese weighed in on his argument and started it actually this all stemmed from an empire interview choose down to celebrate his career and it was just off the hand common in the world is jumped on that and kind of Purple Monkey Dishwasher but guess will the matriarch of Cinema Power okay has come out and waiting with her opinion now Jennifer Anderson of all people has decided to come out inside that she believes marvelous destroying similar Jomo show your feelings on this I think she you might want to gay lead role in a Scorsese movie but uh while you know I've I kind of empathize with her because I'm a big fan of novel but at the same time is is this a bandwagon that people are now going to jump on is this going to divide light Hollywood's is kind of interesting I think it's an interesting discussion point and kind of a thing for head say Kazaa she's not always she's kind of the least controversial Hollywood figure that you could think off really sure I mean Yeah Doug Monroe she's nice some really good films and she's a very good artist in on some really bad while she's let's be fair she's not stink is your take every paycheck I mean you shouldn't judge at opinion just by the stuff they've done before and I'll tell you things one I think that is pretty rich coming from someone who has basically bill her career off of certain movies that people might say on good for cinema and size h coming from someone who may have I one hundred percent certain at some point given the fact that Marvel Hispanic over twenty free movies and you look at the cost that they have employed overdose films I have no shadow of doubt in my mind that there would have been a conversation General Franson one point for eyebrow in a marvel movie when you have people like when you got when even got like Angelina Jolie because into films to up and coming actors Oh so well established Michelle Pfeiffer is I am sure the fetus have been put out like very far across the landscape and even people who might be a little bit interested because they're hits March to film well they're interested are Germany believes she's probably at some point been been part of that world even just the discussion and but there's an interesting debate about what is cinema what movies what does it mean to go to the cinema now I believe that the reason why he goes to send my is be entertains have some escape him and suggesting joy to art that before you that doesn't mean that are should be diminished for it's just that marvelous excelled recently in escapism of white the have a cinematic experience doubt ican watch amazing films in plenty of other mediums so people netflix argument arday Killing Cinema Roy mccown and Shannon that they can actually make some really amazing beautiful pieces of art and some whiteside Adam Sandler nearly movies on Netflix those stupid that stupid Dale where it was like ten movies with him and his mates and she was probably in a couple of them this is so subjective I think people are entitled to their opinion and Jennifer Aniston ranch and taller I bet you have a part of me fuck your mobile movies yeah it's spiky one isn't it I don't WanNa wait too much into the wars I feel like there might there might be a feeling a split development of of the Scorsese's and John Feinstein who maybe leaned way more havoc driven and yeah and so what marvel represents which is a kind of moral of action and more surface and payment I guess my son in law can elitist snob right now I don't know not very well affect of every now and again people why in on that and give the ideal comments and you think you can have strawberry you can have vanilla can have ice cream just be happy having right there's a time right now we'll four cinemas going to go away because the piracy and thankfully that is not the case at the moment yes there is still a big problem actually I think streaming services a stemming that problem sorry up quelling if that's the right word because it's not that much especially imagination to pay out for a netflix account and you're less likely to download a film illegally if you can stream net flicks account but then again because of high because of social media because podcasts over sudden cinema be as bills like is becoming more than event again so when a new star wars movie comes out everyone wants to go when when Ron since out comes out and cinema it's GonNa be Legion of people marching that cinema some of them to want to beat the shit out then because some of them because they're intrigued and I turned if we we've had a feeling that for a while so I think I think he's kind of on the APP in my opinion and I speak about murky waters Disney dropped their trailer for jungle cruise now for the shaded this bison ride in the theme park in the late nineties early two since Disney went through a thing of making movies about rides that are in their parks now the most successful is probably the Carribean food I I would say national treasure is equally good also not haunted mansion with Eddie Murphy The unfunny Eddie Murphy at that point there stages Eddie Murphy's career there's hilarious biggest on the planet Eh then there's Anthony Eddie Murphy and I'm hoping we're going to get back to funny Eddie Murphy glad he's back you know that resurgents that seems to happen in certain actors careers I hope that comes back soon but anyway the next step is the jungle cruise movie now this has people like Emily Blunt Dwayne Johnson Aka the rock playing the lead in this and also Jack Whitehall is cast in this film as well I really hate that guy is really hard for me to have like a neutral about this but anyway to try to drop John sure I force from this trailer teen depression now I mean I the Ri- it's kind of fascinating at Disney building these films around of right to whatever company in the world could actually get away with that but now is it kind of looks like a family friendly kids movie were very kind of placid dwayne Johnson who doesn't look at all ah interested to be honest but now I'm not not very intrigued I can safely say I'm the gear to five already come next year WF Linney see I'm ready to because on Piper like I jimmy like this cast with the exception of cars and the from that trying to I've never seen a rook look so bored do you not like he just generally just he's saying stuff like the rook and any green show of that trailer you'd say that looks like the Rock Bass just missing the charm the charismatic nece it I mean say what you will about roques movies some of them are app I believe something absolutely fantastic and yeah he's learned some lessons like everyone does when they're they're building their repertoire but for the last two or three years awed generally believed that guy is probably the big extra on the planet for everybody physically and metaphorically as well in that and even if you watch something hopes insured and a Lotta people wolf shit on a lot of people will just high five inside that's awesome film some people say that the dialogue is pretty and everyone's got an arguments we had but one thing you can't deny that the fucking charismatic in that film in fact he's charismatic nearly everything he does so it was a real shock to the system when you watch you and go excites just limp I hope is just Detroit has been poorly and they just put the wrong things in the wrong place at their own time and that's why you kind of got this kind of discount act from it because he's genuinely funny great person there has been films but yeah I don't think this is going to start a trend thing is going to be like that with pirates it had legs the point five movies and literally got Johnny Depp a tropical island in payments and I don't know if it's going to do that and I also think this is probably a probe petite as in development for a very long time and probably even during the days of you'll national treasures you haunted mansion's this was probably the next in the hopper to be built up and it's just only take into now because they're nice to get started at the rock attached to its I mean and seems like one of those movies that no one is everyone or pretending they're passionate about Berea is kind of a job as a job which I'm not judging of everyone work but yeah I can see been a been a member one Disney birt's prove me wrong are being in many times before so yeah exactly all right moving on one of our favorite mental moment cycle Waikiki I figure pronounce that correctly he's hot on the hills during the press moment for Joe Joe Rabbit which we will be reviewing a couple of weeks time in fact apparently it was played London Film Festival at the moment and people are lacking when you're talking Waikiki what do you do next well he's already committed to his next project obviously he's working on that no four movie for Marvel but this is another passion project that he has lined up next goal wins it's been a film about a Dutch coach who attempts the impossible task of turning this American Samoa football team from loses into winners basically they just had the biggest loss in older football international football careers if some ridiculous amount of goes they lost by at its accommodate about trying to whip that team in into shape it's got people like Andy Circus involved Michael Bender but most recently Devin nounce that Elizabeth Moss is going to be in this as well I fucking of Elizabeth Moss I think she's wanted my underrated actresses going John Vessel the premise of this film

Breaking Bad, the end that wasn't
"You know this music writing breaking bad is back in the breaking bad movie El Camino is out today and Netflix rich is going to review it in just a little bit in this movie we find out what happens to Aaron Paul's character Jesse Pinkman after the events of the finale six years ago El Camino was written and directed by breaking bad creator Vince Gilligan and stars Aaron Paul and Erin said when the show was over he thought he was done playing Jesse it was a great run man it was such a wild journey for everybody you know breaking bad was it felt like he was at the center of of pop culture it was to be at the center of that was a wild ride for all of us and so we are so blessed that had happened that we are part of it we are also incredibly okay with saying goodbye and unzipping the skins and who never putting them on again remember binge watching this and you just not you could not after the episode was was over you just have to watch the next one immediately yeah can you believe was two thought September two thousand thirteen was the last episode and I saw Aaron Paul two days after the they wrapped the last episode having aired yet I should go to Albuquerque all the time for the real channel which is out there the Albuquerque studios which is where they filmed breaking bad either for it when it first started they took me in a golf cart to where they're like Hey you want to see this new show sat nearly walked right in it was better call Saul's office was there and the the Walter white's living room and and bill backyard and all that stuff all sets and about a year later you couldn't get within a hundred yards of the but he but he was the he said exactly that same thing right after he had wrapped he was like dude was the role of a lifetime and I'm so glad because exhausted from point because it's such a tortured yeah complex

Oh it's Sean feticide I am the one who knocks Sean this is all spoiler all El Camino episode of the watch and when the big picture meets the small picture uh-huh right where the Twain meet that's where you and I are that's right that's the center of our friendship so sean and I obviously are going to be talking entirely about Camino breaking bad movie is going to be spoiler discussion so please if you haven't watched breaking bad the breaking bad movie do not want to listen to this podcast and if you haven't watched breaking bad do not watch this movie ha yeah I guess that's true though Netflix does have a three minute recap of this series if you don't like that before El Camino start that would strike me as a very strange choice this will be oiler discussions so yeah an entirely about L. Camino obviously El Camino is the story of what happens to Jesse Pinkerton in the moments hours and days that followed the conclusion of breaking bad beloved prestige TV show from AMC from the mind of Vince Gilligan that concluded in two thousand thirteen Chris I need what you thought of this movie like I I wanted to be on this podcast because I wanted to hear in person what you thought about Alchemy I've been waiting for El Camino with great intensity Haitian but waiting for your take on this given how you cover breaking the years I wish I was shocked by how safe the plate at at I was shocked by how much more it felt like a reunion movie than it did like an urgently like a piece of storytelling that had to be told that which is the impression that I was under from Gilligan that this there's something like a lightning strike and he's like I have to tell the story I need to know what happened to Jesse to show the world what happened to Jesse and I think that what you get is a very sweet very well made very unnecessary addition to this to the story we could talk about all the different ways in why I feel that way but I ultimately felt like at the end of the day this movie should have begun where it ended that I was very interested in what do if you get away with it and you are out there in the last frontier as Ed Describes Alaska or yeah as I think Mike's described Alaska that way and Jesse's out there and he's got his new identity his his new Toyota and he's driving into the wilderness I want to know what happens next then I don't I didn't ever really wonder how oh does he get out of Albuquerque we never see the movie about what happens after the getaway yeah we always getaway getaway group of people who could tell that story it would be the breaking bad guys I had a very similar reaction the worst thing that ever happened to this movie is better call Saul because it's literally just a longer and deeper and better version of this kind of a thing which is an ancillary product around a masterpiece work that has to justify its own existence in its telling and and far beyond for me to tell Vince Gilligan to make or create anything but this did just feel not necessary and were in an age where we're devoting ton ends of time to a myriad of things and there was an expectation that this was really gonNA matter and I walked away from the movie admiring it but feeling like it just didn't matter and it's so disappointing yeah I think that there's a lot we're better call Saul thing is crucial I I do think that that is the worst thing that had the breaking bad or at least to this movie in that way because not only did they show that there's all this stuff on the margins of the breaking bad like mothership story that you can floor and are these characters have these really interesting morally complicated both pasts and futures which I think is a huge part about Camino is the way it's essentially backwards looking yes even though it is a a sequel or even though it is about what happens next it is obsessed with the Thomas feels like he's like I really wanted to do this and there's a lot of todd yet and it's like it's almost like he wanted had this whole idea for like what todd does when he goes home to was apartment I had this whole idea of like Badger and Peter Doing I had this whole idea and he wanted to go through that stuff and that was more interesting to him than here's how here's how Jesse gets out of Albuquerque and here's what happens next because the how Jesse gets out of Albuquerque is essentially granted stateful Lena again yes they're just repeating the structure sure that we understand what the ED character played before great to see it again yeah I love Robert Forced I've always loved harbor force or I always thought that that was such a genius updating of the Max Cherry character from Jackie Brown he says similar in his affect. But you're right plot wise and I I should say I don't think breaking bad was one of the plotted series of all time in fact I'm one of the was people who and I think there were a lot of people like this who watched the first season and just thought this is too slow enough for me and it took the third or fourth season for people to be like Gustavo fraying it's all happening auto show either Jane or as Jane was kind of fading away from the story yes I was one of those people in part because I couldn't really I couldn't quite get on its frequency this movie is sort of on a breaking frequency it's very interested in its flashbacks but aside from that it's a fairly quiet methodical character study got a person at the edge of his own existence and it's kind of a fascinating documentary filmmaking it's very much like Sergio Leoni movie it's like a Michael Mann movie very meditative pretty raw in violent at times a little bit about the mechanics of how to do things but as a a functional sequel to a celebrated Prestige TV show what do you think that we've been talking about this a lot lately about the with TV shows are trying to follow up their own story. Yeah where do you think that this fits in in the hierarchy I think it's a lot more like the dead would movie which I think was compromised by obviously not being able to get off the ground I what on Mo- most of a decade and then milch is illness at the end you know at the end of the day and then I think it reminds me a lot of the first Veronica Mars movie which is essentially like a love letter to the fans was service one thing that I think breaking bad is the perfect but I've never understood being like a breaking bad superfan now that's not a criticism of people who are because I think it's really like having that kind of engagement with a piece of art is totally fine and totally cool but the idea that you would need to go back and just give fans that one last ride through a cast of characters who had the perfect last ride like can you can you imagine a better sendoff for Jonathan banks character for Mike then the one he got him bad or the one he is currently getting better call Saul why would you go back and add another one in there and the same thing goes for Walter which is I think something that people are going to be talking about is whether or not they needed that last cranston moment I personally love the last Cranston Paul moment and breaking bad that was pretty very dark and a lot of it was left unsaid and that kind of brings me to the case I would make for this movie which is Essentially Dyke Cranston was the the brain or the head of bringing Babba Jesse was always the heart and Jesse's are was kind of tortured quite literally in the last season of the show and that they'd put this character through so much both physically and emotionally that they almost felt like they needed closure for him that they needed closure for the character on the one hand I I agree with that on the other hand that image of him sort of maniacally driving away from the scene yeah was such a gripping capstone to the show and you know sometimes it's better to not know you know I I think a lot of movies I saw horror movie last night I love horror movies horror movies almost always lose me at the end they always lose me in the last ten minutes because they feel the need to clear things up explain them conclude them and most of my favorite horror movies leave me with this this sense of a lack of clarity and we know that Jesse gets away but we don't know if he gets away and El Camino shows us that it's looks like he gets but I kind of guessed that this was going to be with the movie was GonNa be about or at least said that one of my favorite moments that kind of overlooked in the end towards the integrate it rings bad is the is grant state and is the Robert Forster ed character and taking waltz out of New Mexico and taking him to New Hampshire and and like outside taking that character who associate so closely with Albuquerque in that setting and put him somewhere completely different making him the fish out of water at that was really breathtaking when it happened the first time and I was like oh I wonder if they'll do something like that with Jesse maybe not necessarily with Ed but that they would put Jesse as a everglades boat captain tour guide or something and that's just what Jesse is doing and then he gets involved in one thing or maybe somebody tries to come get them I don't know so I was Kinda surprised to find out that that is what they did because I would imagine that they would have like a much better idea than me because that's why they make breaking bad do you think that it's impossible to officially confirm or deny this but do you think you would have enjoyed Jesse in Alaska a lot more than just Jesse Exiting Albuquerque this is it's easy to play Monday morning quarterback and be like you guys didn't go all in on this you you you decided to stay in Albuquerque to keep all the old characters around regardless of how they looked now which we can get into and just kind of tell a breaking bad puzzle episode two or three times how Jesse going to get the money out of the refrigerator Jesse you're going to get through this welder the welders office has Jesse GonNa get Albuquerque and it's easy to say like that if they had done a meditative character study about Jesse pink been living in rural Alaska and thinking about what happened to him I don't know fans I don't know what people would have said I don't know what I would I said but it was it was interesting that like you're saying that end show Jesse driving away leaves everything to.

"And what's offered Hi and welcome to asleep spoiler special about El Camino breaking bad movie The follow up to the beloved very popular morally complicated series about Walter White the mess Lord extraordinaire known as breaking bad I'm TV critic we'll ask him and I'm joined by slates culture editor Sam Adams Hi Sam so we both saw this movie yesterday honest to God movie theater which I think did elevate the experience and we're going to spoil it you WanNa do it let's break bad let's let's the crap out of this thing okay so I totally enjoyed watching it had gained almost nothing from it like it was nice to see all your old breaking down POWs again but it really as we will get into when we talk about the plot really kind of advantage things like very little and for that was kind of so economical and lean it's weird note for things to now have gone out on I couldn't agree more i WanNa say I sat in this movie theater and I was like this is delightful like it's very beautiful it's nice to be in a movie theater the fact that it's kind of like it is sort of like a bonus DVD extras stretched out to do our movie in that context was like very delightful but it's not just that it doesn't quite advance the plot like it's not just that Jesse like ends up being okay just like you would hope you would or whatever and then there's all these sort of details and hoops to jump through to get to that place watching it I realized like by the end of breaking bad for all the stuff that was happening with plot and it's a very well plotted show it was really like a show about a kind of moral calculus like the whole thing about it was actually for me anyway watching a certain point interesting and gripping about it was weird complicated relationship that we viewers bad fans good fan you know had with Walt and what he meant and what we wanted to happen to him and how what we wanted to happen to him may or may not have actually what should have happened to him like morally and ethically speaking and Jesse has always been kind of outside of that moral calculus he was like you know he's done a lot of very bad things but he's like the person we were permitted by the show to like sort of wholeheartedly so actually this movie al Qaeda was not animated by any of these like thorny questions and Act I think it really went out of its way to make sure he you know there's finally a gunfight as we'll get into like they made sure he didn't kill anyone but really bad guys like it's like sort of it just felt like it wasn't there wasn't actually so much of their their right I mean I had an idea midway through about what El Camino was going to be out and maybe we'll get into the future and I just this may have been me singing expectations and then being mad for not meeting them but I really thought it was going to kind of advance that Oh calculus and then ultimately it didn't so let's actually talk about the plot of this movie so this begins like literally technically it opens with a flashback to to Jesse and Mike by the river presumably not long before Mike ends up being killed in this series but then the the first thing in the presence of the movie is literally like the second after breaking bad ends Jesse kind of screaming in the El Camino having away in the movie takes place I think you know maybe over a couple of days or maybe a couple of weeks most and it's just about Jesse trying to escape and find a way out of this bad situation that he is still in despite the fact that Walter has killed the Nazis who were holding him captive he's still wanted by the police was involved with this very large drug operation doesn't have any money and new friends and it's basically how Jesse gets out of it where he ends up right so one way to think about it is it's basically like you know like breaking bad episode often like interest use some impossible dilemma that Jesse and Walt would like solve by the end of the episode to only have another dilemma introduced it was it was more graceful than often what happened and this feels like a sort of like it's a similar thing there's like a number of hurdles Jesse has to overcome to basically get a new identity and get out of it Albuquerque but he's not walt right so he has you know he's he's not quite as smart so he has he has to do it a little bit of a different way but and everyone in the show that you've basically everyone in the show shows up most of them are in flashbacks and you know they're flashbacks because we know this character is dead right but like how it opens on Mike who we know is Dead Walt eventually shows up in a flashback the kristen ridder character who's like Jesse love shows up in a flashback there's some other ones right badger and skinny pete well that's not a flash because here no yes you've got I think the character's name is Ed the Robert Forster kind of cleaner gave shows up like all the way out of new identity he plays a very big role in this. Yeah there's a long flashback to the things that happened with the Jesse clements character but basically has just Jesse the character Jesse Pink Man shows up at Badger and Skinny Pete House where they're having sort of I thought like pretty contrived brandon in front of a video game and he's Iraq and they let him in and he is you know like feral extremely PTSD and we have a couple really harrowing at this point very short sort of flashbacks to his experience being kept in a cage by these drug dealing Nazis you know he wakes up in this room in this house or the first night and he thinks the ceiling is a cage and he doesn't know where he is and he pulls a gun on his friends there's a scene where he takes a shower where he fought being you know firehoses against a wall it's he was tortured he's like a torch he was tortured for months and just gotten out and that it's very he seems really messed up and it's kind of hard to watch and then actually that fades out as we get rolling which is basically he needs to figure out how to get out of perky and he needs new identity so his first stop which we sort of figure out what he's doing in conjunction with these flashbacks about this day that the todd character sort of took him while he was imprisoned on a to do to basically dispose of a body of his cleaning lady we learned that he's looking for Todd's money the todd is hidden apartment that was a good very satisfying like breaking bad ask sequence right I don't know I I like I enjoyed it would you think right yes so tod money that he is basically you know stolen from walt in the flashback he has killed his cleaning lady because she discovered where he was keeping the money it which was a set of encyclopedias I think Jesse Clements has maybe one of the best rules in the best performance isn't this thing the kind of banality of evil quality of him is just so great like he takes Jesse out of his cage brings him over his house you know you think he's going to help him like move a couch or something like that and it's just like Oh is strangled my cleaning woman with a belt and not because she tried to steal my money but because she found my money was like hey look there's this money in an encyclopedia so and then he just murdered her he deserves that secrete line that episode concludes touching well I have a better place to hide it I know we're GonNa put it where no one can find it so then there's this sequence in the president of Jesse ripping apart this apartment on piece by piece you know pulling off the molding going into the walls etc there's kind of overhead shots like hide Rama shots of this place is completely torture shreds and that yeah that just go to the most like purely like our back in the breaking bad bruising again it's like Mike taking apart car to look for the bug on that show which vary that's actually that's actually better call Saul same idea yes it's long sequence of him like ripping stuff apart of the team for stuff feels very much like back in the familiar groove and like when he's finally exhausted and thinks he can't do it anymore banks has had on the fridge and he finally discovers the money at which point two cm cops come in who turn out not to be cops and Jesse gets in the face off with them for the money and that sort of kick starts the rest of the plot which is basically that is a million dollars in todd's house he ends up splitting three ways with these guys who run a welding operation who it turns out you know constructed one of the devices that kept.

"They release the trailer for El Camino the breaking bad movie earlier today the full trailer I was lukewarm huge breaking bad fans love better call Saul just a little hesitant just because these guys have hit so many home runs Vince Gilligan and their team I thought I add a little movie put together in a way we didn't even know it's happening what's gonna go on the trailer is really strong and looks very very good so looking forward to that that's going to come out I think next month on Netflix right I'm still kind of confused about that too is that just the Netflix and the movie guys you know the six is that Netflix streaming only or theatrical short release you know Dave. yes so okay that's what they're doing so this is what they've done before this is why Spielberg gets berada they've been out of control or use upset because they're releasing it for one weekend theatrically so then they can qualify for warts and what Spielberg's says look we we are going to require for the Oscars and I think he got shut down on this a two week theatrical otherwise you got Amazon and Netflix coming in here in your muddying up the field of filmmakers I tend to agree with him to a certain extent that look things have things have
'Downton Abbey,' 'Breaking Bad,' and Why TV Is Still Jealous of Movies
"Chris. You're here along with Amanda because you know a lot about television and Amanda and I are for a little bit out on television sort of as a general rule. I'm post. TV POST TV separate succession. Now there are some television shows that I love. I started to watch when this weekend that I think is incredibly well made which is called unbelievable but I was just home with my mom for a little while and she while she's a stranger to cable news but she adorable still gets a lot of her news from the newspaper so two days later she'll be like. Did you hear about Joe. Biden and I'll like what what do you mean. Did something new happens you know. Did you hear about this phone. Call and that's just what you did with unbelievable where you were like. I'm breaking to you guys that there's this show well no now. I admit I am one one week late and you've already covered the show on the WOK yeah. We've already covered the sh the show on the site. I just didn't have the time to get to you. I hear you I'm seeing all these movies but one thing that is interesting that it's happening right now is is that I even though the just happened and even though TV is having this incredible boom time I feel like TV is still a little jealous of the movies and we know that because Downton Tanabe rather than comeback as an eight part miniseries has decided to become a full length feature film and the people said. Yes they said Yes to the tune of thirty three million dollars a lot of money for an extension of the Downton Abbey University was a show that was popular and a phenomenon sort of when it started. I believe the first episode of the Hollywood respective podcasts was a recap of the Dow naby premier guess which is just amazing what times past its Niche Butler's Butler's and and and you know that's a show that I liked and I really did you recap Amanda you recap what an amazing time capsule of our life on the Internet in creating culture and now it's a fulling feature feature film which is something that I think twenty years ago it had happened you would have said Downton Abbey really grew up and stepped up to the big leagues in this case. I wonder how you guys feel about what what it means to extend what was once a broadcast. TV Show into movie platform and also like why why this movie work. Why did it work so well. I have a couple of sites and the answer answer of why to turn it into a feature film is money which worked out because it made thirty three million dollars we had a great piece on the ringer last week by writer named Kate Loyd who's based in London and it was he's about the downtown Abbey Economy essentially in how the show changed both tourism in the UK and like she went to a lot of fancy locations and like talk to British these people but also how it changed the British TV industry and down abby the show. Was this wakeup call I think for people in the UK okay that people would from other parts of the world would watch when these costume dramas it was kind of a revival of the costume drama and also had a finance the shows so that they could me distributed around the world and so the piece argues that you know everything from peaky blinders to howards end to all of the things that we now consume and treat as part of the television firmament at least the latest generation of them are a result of Downton Abbey success right that show relaunch yeah Adia so in that way. It's not that surprising to me that it did while because it was like a legitimate phenomenon and we've lived with it for a long time in maybe season six. I wasn't as great as season one but it made a lot of money in a lot of people liked watching it. It's short relief to because the two other big releases over the weekend and that it beat out were ad Astra which was covered at length on this podcast last week and as a movie that I would recommend people see and Rambo last blood. Did you catch up with that Chris. I didn't see I saw ad Astra instead of Rambo because this was not playing anywhere near me. Oh that's a shame why was that I woke neighborhood for you. so neither of those films which are very male centric stallone doesn't play well in. Philly yeah that's a good point you'd think he'd be in every theatre getting but I guess partially one of the the reasons why down succeeded so well is because a lot of women saw this movie and it was the primary opportunity for women at checkout films one week after hustlers dominated the box office and sensing a trend here if you like this happens four five times a year when people are like there are movies for women as well yeah. I think that's true also float yes women see movies. Rah Rah route whatever old people really see movies and the theatres is there is nothing better to do with your time if you got a mom or Gramma Ma than to take them and see the Downton Abbey. That is just wholesome entertainment for everyone so I think that that is as important. The age is as important as the gender breakdown on this one. Let's let's just very quickly. Even though Chris has not seen the downton movie talk about what's good about the downs and movie you and I attempted to recap the film for Chris via slack last week. You feel like we did a good job. Ah Yeah I think so recognized all the names. All the actions made sense I just did they didn't really come together in a sort of visual sentence for me so that is actually a notable spoke to Michael Angler about this. It is a little bit of Downton on steroids. You know the theme music is amplified in such a way that maybe they had three hundred more brass instruments. Mintz played playing the theme song. There's a lot of drone shots of Downton Abbey. It is it is a a muscular rise version of this upstairs downstairs costume drama the film itself did strike me though I think you may have originally said this to me as just one long episode of Downton Abbey to me it was like a Christmas special sel which they do in the UK and I think it was the season two Christmas special of Downton Abbey which is when Matthew and Mary finally get together and like kissing the snow outside outside of the side of the House I would say it's on par with the Christmas special except for like to party set-pieces instead of one as you said and fancier dresses addresses and I guess there's like a first episode climax halfway through the movie and then a second episode kind of bringing everyone home. The thing is downstairs to get into some hijinks and then there's ramifications upstairs. It's crazy what happens on almost like it's upstairs downstairs I thought it was an enjoyable movie and I'm not surprised that it was successful. I'm surprised it was successful. It was also the biggest movie in the history of focus features which just fascinating I have spoken to some people who worked worked on this movie and they have when they acquired the rights to release this movie. They said we have our IP. We have our version of superhero movie and focus features. That's what I was. GonNa say really leans into that older audience that you're talking about the identify women as their audience much more clearly and this is a part of the same strategy so I wouldn't say necessarily the Ad Astra had this problem but I do think that it is near impossible to sell anything anymore without some pre existing kind of awareness of what you're getting when you walk into it just because there's so many options for people that if you just sorta like here's a movie about butlers and rich people story. Michelle dockery people are going to be like I don't know but if it's something that they have this decade long relationship leashes ship with if they have the kind of extra screen relationship that they have they cared about and if there is like I was I was watching a lot of linear television this week because I was with my mom. We were watching the Ken Burns documentary. There was down Abbey stuff sandwich. Every episode of the Ken Burns Documentary Music talking to the country music to let you know it's coming out. Here's the history of the show. Here's a recap of everything that happened. Here's the making of the show like they actually did their push. It just just happened on public television. We didn't see it as much necessarily as like Robert Downey junior driving around in an Audi with a Samsung phone pushing vendors do you think that this is now now a sort of MCI -ation of Downton or is this just a one off thing that they struck gold on this one movie or is there going to be another one have been teasing the sequel for weeks. Now that's yeah yeah they've been talking about how the possibilities open and I think you know which is code for. Yes it will happen and they certainly leave the door open in the movie. Everyone is in in a happy place but more hijinks cannon sue and I'm sure well a Dan. I'm curious how far you can probably only take down into world war. Two 'cause post World War. Two I think all of those states just for their museums museums the economy economy of the upper class in the UK just breaks down and it's just not how upstairs downstairs doesn't really apply as much anymore the film kind of glances at the end to the how much longer can this go on which I thought was an interesting potential way to seal office equal in the end zone dunkirk what we'll talk about this more. Maggie Smith is in this movie Maggie Smith Chris do modify spoil Israel okay. I guess if you are really really strict about spoilers. Turn it off now. Even but Maggie Smith gives a speech that's kind of like a farewell speech but notably nothing actually conclusively happens to whether Maggie Smith math will be in future episodes of down nappy. TV show or something happens to her but then they're like. We'll see what happens yeah she could've done urge becomes iron man. It's incredible credibly. She defeats the end of the movie. It's wild. It's nineteen twenty seven in this movie that's right. They've got like twenty more years. Yeah okay. What's interesting to me about. This is is the movies in theaters. It's an extension of a television show there have been there's been the super sizing of TV shows into movie form a lot over the last year. This isn't the first first time it's happened. In the ninety. s we saw the kind of like met a rift commentary on things by having. Beverly hillbillies movies and Brady Bunch movies now what we have is just a more clear extension of the stories that originally told there was a dead movie earlier. This year was a between two ferns movie also released over the weekend which is not quite the same serialized television but is in the same tradition in a way away and then in October. We have a breaking bad movie called El Camino Dave Dina do this for a long time. They've been dying to get this kind of multiplatform storytelling going because of the amount of money there is if you can actually do what they wanted to do with dark tower where you can tell something that has has a feature presentation that maybe is the sort of the danger of the story but like you have other storylines going on TV and that you could actually create a like twelve month a year sport out of your story. That's why they want you know and now there are different things now.

Climate Change Denial in the Age of Trump
"Want to deal with this question of global warming. And what what provoked me is a tweet the president put out this Tuesday. In which he quoted a noted climate skeptic who claims to climate change is fake science, Trump cited the comments of Patrick more on Fox News and FOX and friends program which. Really disturbed me. Remember more was the co-founder of Greenpeace. And then he decided to flip his position. And he says the whole climate crisis is not only fake news. It's fake science. There is no climate crisis. There's weather and climate all around the world. And in fact, carbon dioxide is the main building block of all wife. By the way, according to Greenpeace more is not a co founder. But rather a paid spokesman for a variety of polluting industries for more than thirty years. By the way, Moore is not a climate scientist. He does have a degree in forest, biology and ecology. But these he says he's an and Trump himself is an aggressive critical climate change and has been for years. When you take a look at the Trump Twitter archive. It turns up over a hundred tweets in which President Trump mentions global warming and thirty six in which he uses the phrase climate change. But what's what's fascinating about? It is that. All of these mentions expressed serious skepticism about climate change. Trump has tweeted dozens of times about how it's so cold whenever he is in New York or in Washington during the winter. And how that debunks the idea that the climate is changing. He also seems fixated at least for a time. I made the scientists were changing the preferred nomenclature from global warming to climate change. So I want to ask a question because students walked out of class today all across the country and indeed around the world. Because they believe that climate change is real and will affect their lives. So when you hear the president of the United States. Doubting by the way, disputing scientific evidence. Indeed, the president made it very clear in a statement made recently. That when he was asked about findings that the White House itself had come up with. Or departments of the executive branch about unchecked global warming, which could wreak havoc on the US Konami. He said, I don't believe it, by the way. So you know, it the military in American intelligence disagree with him. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. Does the issue of the president's denial of global warming and students going into the streets. Walking out of class. Does that impact on you? Does it matter? And what does it mean? When a president of the United States denies science. Let's go to Matt calling from agnosio. Matt welcome to K G O. Hi there. John congratulations on your new gig. And of course, this there's this is a global warming and climate change. They are important topics to discuss before I get into it a real real quick. Global warming joke for you. Why does Donald Trump not believe in global warming? Tell me because he took in too many giants games at Candlestick Park during the month of June. I love it. I love it. It's true. But you had a question Matt fire away. Yeah. I was wondering if you address this John on global warming and climate change. What do you think is gonna be the case say us both the polar ice caps melted? One hundred percent what if all the ice melted. We know there'd be a flood in this world. I remember the movie Waterworld, I guess that would be the equivalent. But we know that isn't the danger, but the danger is the seas rising. And if you go to Oakland airport or San Francisco airport, we know that they are very concerned about it. And indeed we are dealing now with maybe building dikes here. No, Matt it's a serious question. Did you know that today close to one hundred Los Altos high school students took to the streets to protest the Trump administration and federal legislators for inaction on climate change those students marching today. Describe it as an existential threat to the planet. And they believe it will deeply affect generations to come. They marched down. San Antonio road to the corner of El Camino real this morning. Chanting for climate Justice and against public support for fossil fuel industry. Now. Wait, there is a lawsuit and sixty minutes featured this of the just the other day, it's working its way through the courts to make sure that the courts rule if there really is a climate change issue, and and the student leaders conforming with that released a statement calling out the failure of governments around the world to take effective steps to address climate change. They call it an impending catastrophe. And they call for the government officials to. I don't know if the green new deal is the way to go. There are many disputes about that. But the students are right. I believe when in their statement, they said, we're at one of the most critical points in human history. If action is not taken right now, we will be facing a task trophy unparalleled by anything the world has ever seen before. We they write the young people are striking that is they walked out of school today because we are scared for our future. We are skipping school because there is no point in staying in school to study for a future. We will not have. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten how do you answer these students? What do you say to them? What what what do you think of their position? And and part of this is that the Trump administration appears to be rolling back climate change initiatives even denying that exists. Trump has tweeted that global warming is a Chinese hoax. You know, it's it's it's a desperate situation. And just so you know, what happened today those laws does high school students walked out in solidarity with an international protests among children and teens. Demonstrating nearly one hundred countries across the globe. All under the banner of a movement called Fridays for future. And I gotta tell you many of these young local protesters here in our own area were inspired at least in part by sixteen year old Swedish activists, Greta Thunberg who began protesting climate change in August last year. And is largely credited with being the catalyst buying this international protests today. So I'm asking the adults that are listening and the kids that are listening. We have high school students listening thousands of students walked out of school to protest this, and you and I know that well at least one hundred twenty nations around the world. And in virtually every city in the United States. They're protesting for their future. I wanna get your comments. I want to know what you think of these student activists d think they're right. Do you think they're wrong? And do you think we? Should be listening. That's the question. I guess one other. Shouldn't the Trump administration? Be listening. And isn't Greta Thunberg that sixteen year old student in Sweden, by the way, the nominated for the Nobel peace prize by several Scandinavian elected officials. Don't you think what she is calling for is a wonderful thing. I do. I think it's great that the kids are out to protect
