"The Emmy nominated show focuses on the cut-throat cutthroat world of a junior college football team season four picks up where the last one left off at Independence Community College in Kansas N._p._r.. TV critic critic Eric Duggan's has been watching Eric's Dahbi back good to be back and do you need to be a football fan <hes> to get something from this show. I don't think so what last chance you does has very well. Is it shows how things actually get done junior colleges where promising football players who got in trouble in big programs uh-huh wind up enrolling at these junior colleges to get some playing time to show that they've overcome whatever problems made them have to leave a bigger colleges and then they try to get back in the mix so that they can further their attempts to become professional athletes and I will say one thing. I think that's confusing about the show is there's not much narration. I'm telling you what's going on. So if you don't know football sometimes it's hard to follow why <hes> play a significant or what's happening during a game or something like that but as the name suggests and as you imply a lot of the players on this team see this football team is the last chance at a better life. Many of them are poor. Many of them have struggled struggled at school with a one of the players Marquees King here and it was like either play football or getting in trouble 'cause we're on from his like. There's a lot of people that shoot kill fight. I was doing things that I hadn't been doing to get what I want into. Try Take Care of my Mama and my little sister. I don't been in shootouts rob. He would have been rob fights. I was is in gangs me miss me. How do these players like marquees king come across to their stories resonate? Yeah I think the filmmakers do a a great job. Several of these kids that they profile are kids for whom sports is the best and last way out of desperate situations now <hes> one one thing that can trouble people about the series is that it's setting up the school as the salvation for them. The school is going to try and teach them how to be students at least good enough student so that they can transfer to a school with a more high profile program and the the the coaches often present themselves as people who can help develop these young men and help them get better their concern for the welfare and the education of the student often stops with how well they are performing on the field. Let's talk about the coach then <hes> Jason Brown. The coach of this team has actually ended up being a pretty darn born controversial figure on the show yeah. This is the second program they profiled in last chance you and in both cases the coach is a very controversial social person in this case. <hes> Jason Brown is someone who has a way of talking to his players that is very much aware contemporary would talk to them so he's white and he's white and he's so he curses at them. He uses the N. Word even though he says he cares about their welfare. There's a lot of questions about whether or not that's true. Now we have clipped it gives you a sample of how he presents himself to the world <hes> which is different than some of the things that the cameras catch him doing where he talks about his approach and how he feels about himself. Let's check it out. I'm not a Rockstar just to coach me. It's all about getting the kid graduated moved on and become great people in society and that's what I do but then when you see how he released to the players during the show <hes> you can see that <hes> maybe something different going on. Here's another clip on time you guys knew either man. Well like Dr Jekyll Mister Hud Hi there good about this show is spend enough time with a program that you can see how the coaches his own worst enemy. He has a hard time even maintaining morale amongst his staff when the team starts to lose the team is good enough that they shouldn't be losing and so <hes> you can tell us a viewer that one big problem they have is is that the coach doesn't know how to motivate the team or his staff..

NPR's Eric Duggan's has been watching the new season higher. Right. Could you first reintroduce us to the drag ball seen in New York, and who was part of it? Sure. So anybody who knows the Madonna song, vogue, and that video will get a sense of what the drag ball scene was like it was contests where different groups of folks would dress up in these costumes, and it was a way to have chosen family for people who were often rejected by their biological family when they would. Come out as transgender come out as gay posed as a great job of sort of recreating that whole scene giving you a sense of what it felt like to be in the middle weather say that in terms of season one during drag shows that were quote, so fabulous. It'll make your eyes hurt, but that was contrasted with a lot of grit and hardship. And you just alluded to some of that what happens in, in season, two well season sort fast forwards to nineteen ninety and we're in the heart of the aids crisis. The league character impose played by Jay Rodriguez Blanca is HIV positive and in the first episode of the new season, she's talking to her medical professional about the progression of disease, and we get a sense of what people knew what they didn't know about how HIV and aids worked, and her medical professional is played by Sandra Bernhardt.

"Finally know. This show rap last night after eight seasons and fans had a strong reaction to the finale, which is not unexpected given the show's rabid fan base to tell us more about this moment is NPR TV critic Eric Duggan's, Eric, good morning. Good morning. Now now, before we start we have to warn, we tried to keep you safe all season, but we can't anymore, you're going to be hearing, some spoilers, I believe, well, is going to be sticking her fingers in her ears. Okay. Here's saying. Here you, but for those of us who are listening, what about the ending, okay? So once again, just like winter was coming on game of thrones spoilers coming here. I guess what I would say is that TV's most epic series failed to deliver on an epic ending for the record brand stark, a young man who lost the use of his legs when he's pushed out of a window and the first season became the king. He won the game of thrones. But big moments like the death of heroin turned despot, the nearest star Gary, and they happen quickly and they kind of seem anti-climactic now, let's remember last week's episode. Denise used her dragging, the burn down town of king's landing even after its rendered, and then on Sundays episode her lover and supporter, John snow, had this argument with her adviser, Tyrian, Lancaster, and they're back and forth. Kinda sounded like two fans arguing over it at seeing when the dragon attacks the town, I actually made any sense. So let's check it out. Tyrian is played by Peter digit he starts argument. The moment the gates fell the battle over. So a friend bed. She still trucking out of the down fifty four it would you have done it? Now John knows he wouldn't have done it. So he decided that Danny is dangerous tyrant who must be killed which he does. Well, maybe this really was an argument over the earlier episode that accidentally got in the way that coffee Cup accidentally got into one of the they exactly now I'm hearing, you say what has been a common complaint about this season that there's just too much plot crowded into too few episodes. Yeah. I think part of the problem is that the last two seasons have had fewer episodes than the typical ten that they used to have and 2017 they aired seven episodes. And then these final six came almost two years after that. So maybe it feels kinda rush because a setup episodes aired so long ago. And then we get the climax of the story now. I think people expected to see the story of this heroin rising the free the oppressed. And instead they saw. This story of a rebel becoming a brutal, dictator and getting killed and that might have thrown fans off a little bit has this series in some fundamental way, changed TV. I think it has it's, it's brought movie. Epic level filmmaking the television, and it proved that you could create a huge hit with it. Of course. It's affected the culture and people, haven't even watched the show like you Steve, who these characters are, and it came along at a time with geek, culture was taking over pop culture and road that trend to massive success. And so we've seen now you know shows about zombies and superheroes. And now sword and sorcery characters are among the most popular shows and movies out there and game of thrones, I think is the ultimate example of that in television will see if any other series follow there can be a show nerd now and just get deeply deeply involved in extraordinarily complex, plots. Of course. Eric, thanks so much pleasure. That's NPR critic Eric.
Super Bowl Ads 2019: Stunts, Self-Deprecation And Celebrity Sightings

Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast. Some Super Bowls are thrilling and summer like last night when the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams and the lowest scoring Super Bowl game in history. Of course, the game is only part of the spectacle, where the halftime show and the commercials anymore. Exciting. We have a tweet review here from one Rachel Martin of NPR news who writes, you wrote Rachel well that was horrible. Don't think you didn't love it very much NPR. Tv critic Eric Duggan's has his judgment the most unexpected moment in the Super Bowl. Halftime show. Didn't come from headliner. Maroon five or guest Travis Scott, it came courtesy of characters from the cartoon SpongeBob squarepants who introduced Scott's part of the performance. Musical genius who needs no introduction. The cartoon clip was a shoutout to sweet victory. Assam spongebob. Squarepants once played on an episode that parody the Super Bowl was a hip surprise. And a halftime show that also included appearances from Outkast member big BOI and a gospel choir. Maroon five frontman, Adam LeVine, stripped off, coats and shirt until he was bare-chested showing off his tattoos while singing one of the group's biggest hits moves like Jagger. Gives me. Show. It was professional mildly. Exciting the kind of ineffective Super Bowl halftime show that the NFL might have been hoping for after its controversies over players kneeling to protest police brutality. But it was also kind of boring like most of the Super Bowl commercials press to avoid social media backlash. Many of the ads in Sunday's game were not edgy groundbreaking or even all that funny. Consider one but lights commercials which featured medieval characters from last year's but light Super Bowl ads preparing to watch a joust a beautiful day for a date. Date things out lucky. Loincloth cold Bud Light comfy thrown I don't have the plague anymore when they're but night is killed by a character from game of thrones called the mountain then a dragon sets fire to the jousting arena. And the whole thing turns into a game of thrones commercial. I'm not quite sure how scenes of carnage and fire cells cans of Bud Light. Maybe it makes you thirsting Harrison Ford fared better in an ad that showed fictional failed products, featuring Amazon, Alexa, including dot collar. Ordering dog the Barco you'll want. I'm not paying for England dog food ordering gravy yet. There is nothing funnier than watching Indiana Jones chases small dog around his house, Pepsi earn some multigenerational cool points by having chance the rapper remix. The backstreet boys hit I want it that way. And the Washington Post scored with a serious ad ended reinforcing the value of journalists and journalism as images of reporters like slain columnists, Jamal kashogi appeared on screen. Tom Hanks provided a reassuring narration when our nation is threatened. There's someone to gather the facts. To bring you the story. No matter the cost knowing keeps us free. Now, I might be a bit biased. But seeing some of the most expensive real estate in television used to remind America that journalism is a key to democracy seemed like the best use of a Super Bowl ad that I've seen in quite a while Americans.

"I kids TV host who will inevitably remind you of Mr. Rogers, but pickles is going through some pretty adult issues on Showtime's new series. It's called kidding the show debuted yesterday and NPR's TV critic Eric Duggan's had some thoughts my thumbnail description of this show is what if Mr. Rogers had a nervous breakdown because of a horrific family tragedy. So you can see what a tough subject. This is turned into comedy Carey's. Jeff pickles is the sensitive sheltered kids TV host who struggling with this tragedy and several episodes are directed by executive producer Michel Gandara, who you might remember work with Jim Carey on the film eternal sunshine of the spotless. My and you can see Ghandi's I for absurd situations. And like presenting jarring images and convoluted story lines. There are a lot of jokes in the script. But this series at least in the first four episodes that I've seen is this intense meditation on trauma loss and pain. So. Even the funny lines don't quite land like funny jokes, and Jim Carrey's playing a very subdued character very different than the characters. We've seen him play and popular movies, like liar liar or ace Ventura. So the outward contours of this character clearly reflect Fred Rogers, but is that where it stops? I mean, how closely do the producers tie this character to Fred Rogers, this show seems to be playing a game of creating a character who similar enough to remind you Fred riders, but different enough that they won't get sued. He talks the kids in a similar way. He has songs the way Fred Rogers did. But one threat of the show seems to center on a show Jeff pickles doing things that we would never see Mr. Rogers do in real life like having sex stalking his estranged wife. And the other thing is like the other characters don't really treat Jeff pickles with the respect that Mr. Rogers seemed to have from both the people that he worked within his family, pickles marriage is falling apart his executive producer. Who's also his dad won't let him talk about the tragedy on his shell. So we've got a clip where Jeff pickles is trying to convince his dad who's played by Frank lane. Gela to let him talk about death on the show but daddy wants to protect the franchise. So let's check it out relieve another show about colors kiss disguise bloom to know, what to do when it's perfect position talk to them. Worst fear. Mommy and daddy everyone. They love. Well, they'll never drink milk. It's dark. I mean, what does this mean for where Jim Carrey's out in his career that he took this role? What Jim Carey seems to be struggling to sort of figure out his place in show business and just pickles is doing that too. He's the Jeff pickles repressed guy who slowly seeing this emotional turmoil breakthrough this placid image that he's created for himself. Now, it's tough to tell if this is going to add up to a coherent story. But I'm really hopeful that Jim Carey Michelle gone. We will create a series. It's worth spending so much time with these characters paying all right NPR. Tv critic, Eric Duggan's. Thanks,.

"Netflix dropped the second season of it's coming of age comedy. A typical today, the show follows an autistic teenager as he never got navigates life and love in highschool NPR TV critic, Eric Duggan's has been watching and he joins us. Now, Eric, I know you like the first season. How does the second one checkup? I'm enjoying the second season even more than the first. There's an autistic teenager named Sam, who in the first season decides that he wants to have girlfriend, what he basically says he wants to have sex, but he was to have occurred friend and that means he's going to be more independent from his family. Particularly, his mother has been taking care of him for many years, and that causes all of these dynamics inside the family that ripple out in including making the mother feel so rejected that she wants having an affair spoiler alert we're going to be talking about things from the first season. For people who haven't seen it, but she does have an affair outside the marriage. 'cause all kinds of affects her husband finds out because their daughter who observed her mother, having an affair write something on a bulletin board. This normally used to help the family organize itself. And as the second season starts the coping with it. So we have a clip where the daughter and the mother are kind of at odds with each other while they talk about dinner, and this will give you a sense of how the family dynamic has changed in the second season. Let's check it out. So what do you think of the roast? Why did you change the spice mix? Also Elsa, you carved weird dead cars have better. When is he coming back? Do we call him Doug? No, we're still mom and dad here. That's a good question. When is done coming home? Well, he's at Grandpa's building the porch. So whenever that's done well, I guess it's good that he's building a home instead of wrecking one. So. Eric, I, it sounds like it's it's not just about a kid with autism. It's about a family. Yeah. And it's about the fact that the family has had for years organized itself around Sam and his special needs as an artistic kid. And once he decides to become more independent, everybody in the family has to sort of reconsider what is my role in this family now, and we get to learn all these layers. You know, dead who's played by Michael Rapaport had initially abandoned the family when they found out that Sam had autism. And then he comes back and it makes him feel guilty. So he tolerates a lot of stuff from his wife until it gets to the point where she has an affair on him. And so while the first season was about this family kind of blowing apart in a way, the second season is much more about this family trying to figure out a new way of staying together, and Sam is considering going away to college, which for not just cystic kid who's very used to rhythms and patterns and stability. This, this is a very frightening, Connor. For him. The idea that he might do something that would change his life very significantly, maybe even require him to leave home and live in a different place..
