"Actually any good. Love is blind is sort of the perfect blended smoothie of so many other reality shows and this experiment has been conducted before we've seen people date in the dark. We've actually seen true documentaries about how blind date people who actually cannot see We've seen shows where people get married at first sight. So you know it really mix all that together and desa very well. It's interesting how love is blind goes through the whole journey incorporating shows at once it has a show where people meet but dense each other Propose to each other without having seen each other than they actually see each other and that's again they go on their honeymoon right away. I think on a honeymoon. Why not and then they go live together. It's so much and they go home and they to see one another's apartments and houses and oh by the way I'm deeply in debt so I don't even really have anywhere to live. There were two moments in this show where I was like. Oh the candor in this discussion it feels just as candid as like real life. Discussions between partners talking about how to navigate having one black partner in one white partner meeting. The parents got felt so real conversation. That you alluded to earlier where one woman says to her fiance. Just so you know. I'm broke yeah credits crap. And I don't like to work. That felt so real right. It's very rare to see a discussion about money in a reality show. I say bring it on. I WANNA go big picture even further though a thing that I've noticed with love is blind the circle the mass singer It seems like we're in a moment where a lot of these reality shows that are succeeding. Have a premise. In which the big point is what you can't see me at first. What is up with us being really into watching shows about anonymity and performance while I do kind of have a grand universal theory about this if you want to hear it I of course think obfuscation. Masking pretending this is our whole world now and you can play it out in politics. You can play it out. In celebrityhood US certainly played out in social media with influencers. Everybody is presenting a disguise We have people in leadership positions who have very thin resumes who have been promoted beyond their abilities and are sort of wearing a mask Mitt. Romney confessed recently to having like a fake twitter account to troll people. Remember that what I about. The mass singer is that it's a very fun and friendly way to work out. What I think are some real anxieties about who's under there and they go through a lot of craziness on that show with a panel tries to guess it's all sort of celebrities who all kind of know each other and you can recognize each other but neither can the rest of us and there's just something. I think the astonishing quality of that. Reveal that you thought it was celebrity a we were all certain it was. Oh my gosh. It turns out to be celebrity. Be At the same time. I was dealing with watchmen. Which was all about masks? And this is the. Hbo Drama With the starring keen based on the graphic novel right about cops and domestic terrorists. All sort of using masks in different ways. Vigilantism there again. I see masking in a lot of things. What does the success of a show like love is blind and a show like the circle even on a platform like net flicks say about Netflix? And what they want and what they might be giving us more of going forward you know. Tv critics have for a long time. Struggled with what is Netflix. And what does Netflix want to be? And what does Netflix see as its identity Because that's how we dealt with networks for so long we know what an HBO show looks like. We know what an NBC show looks like versus a CBS show and Neth looks just sorta throws all the spaghetti against the wall. A net flicks is trying to replace television and the box office all at once so I was lucky enough to talk briefly with one of the contestants from love is blind earlier this Mark who like we like?

He presided over an HIV outbreak in his home state of Indiana when he was governor because he was reluctant to oversee a needle exchange program. Yeah exactly so. People are a little sceptical and they just announced yesterday that all the messaging rule go through pence who can say what on TV basically. They want to have the same message all across. There's so much going on here with our response and our leaders are doing but there are also some bigger questions about you know what world leaders will do this year particularly regarding something like the Olympic passing.

Don't bite your nails. Yeah probably don't do that in general But also I think for people who are worried about their retirement accounts or their investment accounts. Check right now.

You're listening to it's been a minute from NPR. I'm Sam Sanders and I'm GonNa take some time now to talk about this. New Reality Show a net flicks that I have been obsessed with. Maybe you've heard of it. It is called love is blind. I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life. I've never seen her before you choose someone to marry. How nice to hear from you without ever seeing this show. It's a big hit. Netflix says a few times since its release. It has been the number one show on Netflix. In America like for several days on love is blind. Contestants cannot see each other. They meet from behind a wall. They have dates without seeing each other behind those walls and then they propose to each other only after that do this either fiance and start a new life together and live in the same apartment and planned bachelor and Bachelorette parties and then walked down the aisle or not all on cameras. You'd said Yes semi twice once behind a wall and once in person this is Mark Cuevas. He is one of the contestants who's trying to figure things out with his potential partner. Jessica but you said he was actually got the chance to talk with mark this week. So excited We spoke before the rest of the season of this show dropped on Thursday so listeners. If you've watched already there are no spoilers and never thought in my entire life beyond reality television or any kind of TV. Show at the fact like I never thought I would do that but I kept telling myself throughout the whole process like why not so. I asked Mark to tell me the biggest change in his life since his very popular series premiered getting used to sell fees on the people take wanting to take is pretty interesting. I was at my apartment. Jim and someone walked away. Hey can I get a selfie? And I'm like what what I loved about. Love is blind. Is that the drama and the fights on this reality show. They actually felt real like there's this moment when one of the contestants amber she tells her new fiance Barnett that she's got some financial problems haven't average credit score thank great. It's not bad and there's my student how much talk else twenty grandes that I have not been paying on on. You know. Mark agreed that this sort of realism is. What makes this show such a good watch? There is real love stories here. There's a lot of you know things that aren't as great. But that's the real life stories like if everything was just happy sunshine and roses. I don't think anybody would watch you know because it's not real and I think that they get the real authentic because we aren't active like everything I felt I felt it in the moment and I was just real. It'd be myself but mark also told me some of what you see on the show like Jessica and him living together. It's not entirely real home. Base for her was her home in her dog. I understood that she was always travelling a lot too so they got kind of taken out of context. I'm in here. And she does have her career that she has to do like the world didn't stop for like the show you know and so. I didn't really get to see her as much anyway. Besides that I wanted to ask mark ultimately if the premise of the show that love is blind that love can be blind does mark one of the contestants think that's true it can be. I think that we have so much internal dialog that we stop ourselves from like genuinely feeling a connection like a like me. Do they have this job or this? Hyper the this. But like it's like when we can take a second and actually like shut that voice off. Mb present in the moment and feel that other person for who they are in like it. You know obviously physical attraction shirts important but can you deeply connect with that person in like you feel them listening to you? That was Mark Cuevas. He is one of the contestants on the net flicks reality show. Love is blind in. Y'All we're not done talking about this show yet. I wanted to figure out why the show has tapped such a nerve right now so like all the book critic who has written a lot about reality. Tv Hello Hank. Hi How are you? I'm good how are you? It's been a minute? Has Hank Stewart TV critic at the Washington Post and asked him? I whether this show love is blind is.

"Take an official Canon and legends. Hashtag not cannon into account so punch it because it's time to board the Millennium Falcon Jason. Yeah never and I mean never tell me the I would never do that ever. There's almost no chance of ever telling you the odds the very low. Thank you like a one in three chance you hear that three Po. I certainly never tell me. The odds of creating a pop culture icon archetype. That gets us to this. The idea so search our feelings and use the force. The defining theme of this episode is Yes Harrison. Ford being handsome. No sorry sorry but I mean really yes honestly the life yes lessons what you see. Yes of Han Solo and the rogue archetype archetype. Let serve the little bit a brief history of the rogue and rebel in hop culture leading up to to a new hope and the introduction of Han Solo some of the influences and inspirations for the character wheels really got we have to start with someone on who first embodied the kind of western hero an adventurer for an entire generation of early movie goers hours. John Wayne Johnny Dubs. And it's a particular key one in terms of the eternal Han shot first debate we mocked Georgia's fiddling butts it it hinges on his fundamental view of who hustle is how he should behave and how he should be he perceived Here is big daddy. George Lucas from a two thousand fifteen hank stewart piece in the Washington Post quote Hansel was GonNa Mary Laya and you look back and say should he be a cold blooded killer. Because I was thinking with logically we should he be cowboy. Should he be John Wayne and I said yeah he should be John. Wayne John Wayne if you're not familiar with his roof oof in the western genre. Never killed anyone in Col- hated it. Hated it only like three thousand native Americans. It's but no one else in cold blood certainly and when you are John when you don't shoot people I you let them have the first shot it's a mythological reality early that we hope. Our Society pays attention to incredible incredible stuff. Incredible quo for Lotteries Ins. Yes but I think I don't agree with the reality of that statement but I think it gets at something that is Scott of elemental about heroism. Which is terrorism? mm-hmm is always about defense. It's never about aggression and I think that was what Georgia's responding to. He wanted to make sure that this is not just a guy who just walks up it sees as someone who has a problem with him and then shoots him in the chest. Yes and we're GONNA talk in a few minutes about what really is at the heart of Han as the character and part of the through line of this conversation is going to be that really challenging alchemy in the harmony of the elements that are a part of who he is. And when you're going for literal space cowboy has the John Wayne Eh influence indicates quite clearly that you know George. Lucas was part of being a cowboy. Is that frontier spirit and that sense of adventure but the characters especially here's people who for half to ultimately be held accountable to the morality of the movie and the universe. It's a great point. You know we think about what makes Hanin part of it is that he is kind of illicit person. Smuggler criminal character. But what is a cowboy in a Western cowboy is a fusing of community law into a single person and Hans a person who acts by his own code. He's got his own code that he lives by his own laws even though he doesn't necessarily certainly recognize the laws of the GALAX. Yes there's also Gary Cooper whose wardrobe from high noon grape movie is very reminiscent of Hans Hans outfits particularly in a new hope it two thousand eighteen the solo ending in which Han faces off with Beckett trying to wreck parallel to the end of high noon Lawrence Kasdan till stores dot com about this parallel quote. He's not living in a romantic fantasy of chivalry of chivalry. And this is one of the reasons he such. A popular popular characters reasoning caught. My imagination from new hope is because he represented a kind of very practical cynical. I'm going to survive this scene attitude. Humphrey Bogart who made entire career out of these kind of hard bitten grizzled cynical characters who act like they don't really believe in anything but actually we secretly. Do I watch Casablanca for just like no reason like because it was on CNN the other this past weekend and it's like the perfect embodiment of that kind of character. Where yes rick acts like? He doesn't believe in anything. You runs a gambling establishment. There's people making deals left and right. There's like arms dealers and spies up in here and yet you know very quietly. He's always helping people. And that's like Han. Yes he's looking for money all the time but it always seems to fall on the side of helping people rate self interest quickly is way were. Han is concerned to the needs of the group even if he would not want you to think of him that way that is ultimately his instinct. And that's one of the reasons we're drowned him. Another very clear even directly cited influences James Dean and in general if we go beyond rogue to the rebel a broader sense the rock and roll revolution counterculture defining the spirit of roguish rebellious behavior. You're in the country in the world at large before a new hope. James Dean is the face of that for a lot of people and for George Lucas yes that. DNA was something that he wanted to capture port over to hide in an early draft of a new hope this would been the third draft and tracking Hans. Evolution through under the early drafts is one of the really fun things to do. We'll talk about that as we go. But in that third draft is referred to as quote tough James Dean style star pilot. Yeah about twenty. Five years old a cowboy in starship simple sentimental and cocksure of himself cocksure indeed. But that's obviously just a fundamental soul encapsulation of the Han essence that aura on the surface. The instant thing you think of an associated with and then the thing that even as he evolves in your understanding evolves that still lasts forever. Yeah is that aura of just irrepressible cool. It's such a great point because you think like James Dean is a person who passed away like what sixty years ago or something like that and yet his image is absolutely i. Kinda cool is cool for a very long time caused timeless. Who'll is timeless? You could still look James Dini's wearing outfits in the fifties you select. That is a good looking and handsome young men and you think about what an achievement. It's very easy to sit here and be like. Oh we're talking about Hansel and Harrison Ford and they they molded this iconic character on on James Dean it and to think about like in pre production for Star Wars. Yeah we want him to be like a James Dean type and then actually hitting that. That's the thing actually accomplishing that. It's amazing maybe not the most innovative thing to SRI. I absolutely not right gene yet. That's the thing I mean Greta out of all complex. Yes it really is. This might be a little surprising to some people because it's seemingly on the opposite end of the spectrum from James Dean Francis Ford or Coppola. The legendary director the Titan of cinema was another wide knowledge influence. Winemaker big time wind in guy. Well Yeah I love how many people have a passion for wine. You know like if Tom Brady steps away from the game. We're going to be hearing a lot about how he came into who his legacy drew bledsoe. And then you know reading here about drew. BLEDSOE's winery in Walla Walla Washington. You know it's kind of like jewelry for your real estate uh-huh foot grapes are and then you don't do anything you you'd smash them and you put them in a barrel and you wait. It's amazing what a racket I love mine is I love what I respect it. So there are a couple of aspects to the Francis Ford Coppola influence one is just that he was a seismic influence on George as very very important Horton figure Georges quoted in a AF. I interview as saying quote Francis and I were very good friends right. From the moment we met he continues. He basically he taught me everything about writing and directing at the same time. He got my first film off the ground. Any help get my second film off the ground. Lucas would go on to do second. Unit stuff stuff for the Godfather of other of Francis Films and I was like extremely important and giving George the confidence to follow through with some of the ideas he has and Lucas would say that. He specifically shaped Han with Francis. Ford Coppola kind of swagger swagger and confidence is the key when it comes to how influenced Hans creation from a Joshua Rothman that's fourteen piece in the New Yorker titled The craziest Star Wars. There's this quote at the time. He was a young seductive swashbuckling smoothie and he there is not Hans Solo it is Francis Ford Coppola impressed George Lucas by talking warner brothers into funding apocalypse. Now when you think about the future of George Lucas self-financing and seeing and how much of his movie empire and what Lucasfilm became centered on his relationship to the earnings and the spending that is aroma. Marketable Fokker on moment in his identity and obviously the identity of one of his key characters. Coppola will also play a key role in in a second hand fashion. And how Harrell's me got the part which we get to the casting. And then how about Bruce Springsteen for the Alden Ehrenreich Hound Hound Solo version. At least Aaron Right told the failure in two thousand eighteen terms growing up in circumstances that are hard that you hate and then dreaming of a better life for yourself softening getting out. Bruce would be it really.

That's always sort of transfixed people that Mr. Rogers was something other than just pure genuine goodness. And then this movie comes out this summer about mister Rogers, and it really kind of seals the deal. Like, basically, a pop culture Saint at this point. And then comes Jim Carey shout. And you're like, hey, you're not gonna make fun of mister Rogers are you because we're going to have a fight. But it's actually really good. It's it it is again heartbreakingly sad. He plays a children's TV host who is universally beloved just like Mr. Rogers was and the thing in the show is that he's divorced. His wife has kicked him out a year earlier, they lost a teenage son in a. Car wreck. Depressio? But also, very funny. So, you know, take the good with the bad. Well, it's got be funny. There's got to be humorous get Jim Carey in there. What is nine? Better than he's been in anything in a long time. So that's good. What's nine one one? You've never seen nine. One one is is on FOX. Ryan Murphy show. Member emergency. Adam twelve or all those sort of like, you know, public servants first responders says put those on like every kind of steroid there is and and. Turn up the volume way past eleven and that's nine one one. It's about a bunch of firefighters and emergency responders, and they kind of how you can't imagine last season. One of them got a spear through his head. One of the things we're like, MRs the crucial parts of the brain. You know, this time they come back. The big earthquake in L A, the big one. There are non crucial parts of the brain. Yeah. I mean. There was just one the other day some kids fell on a meat skewer. He fell out of the tree and landed on the whole thing with his head. And he's fine. Wow. And that's a true story. Totally just like five minutes of nine one one speaking, wait a minute. Speaking of the the show emergency wasn't that with Randy man tooth? Yeah. Love that name. From henceforth. I just wanna be noted Hank command. That was a bad show, man. He was never heard from Randi man tooth again. Our I think we did didn't they sing or getting them confused with David soul or somebody? I don't know. It is. Grant, good eve that was another one great good eve. Okay. Forty eight hours on CBS shaver. Forty eight hours. You mean the thing on Saturday night when they do the true crimes. Yeah. I'm looking at you your article returning says this is. You're a long time you need to add click on my top ten shows to watch this fall. Okay. Bring you back. I'm gonna bring you back into my world. We also have a list on Washington Post dot com at every single returning. So it's Steve was reading from taking six hours. Mike, Mike, just put it up whatever he puts up I read. So now, he's going. Okay. Here's some more. Here's some more. Interesting says have you been paying attention to crazy, Tom Arnold and his hunt for the Trump tapes. He has a show I read something about that. Yeah. You know, he's he's he's Cray. You know, he's he's he's his heart is the right place. And he's like a citizen journalist, you know, he's looking for all these recorded instances of Trump, you know, being racist or being misogynist, or whatever. And you know, of course, the holy grail. There these so-called, you know, pe- tapes. He's obsessed. It's an interesting show. It's kind of like, it's a reality show. But it's you know, him kind of hamming it up and also sort of feeling his way around, you know, in a way that a lot of investigative reporters would be doing the same work. You know, what the network is that on? Riceland advice? On cable if you've got a fairly basic cable subscription. I'll bet you have ice land. I have a really expensive full goose bozo cable system. So you and me we're going to be the last two. Every month. I get the Bill and I go, wait a minute. The suckers who like pay the equivalent of a five-star meal. Yeah. Exactly. With a nice bottle of wine. Sorry for your loss is a show on all places. Facebook Facebook is doing TV says now, which I find kind of hilarious. Amass. They got this really good TV show starring Elizabeth Olsen who is slightly younger sister of the Olsen twins. The talented wa. The talent. Thank you. Got. It not me. She's good. Seep plays. A young widow in this very sad. Again, very sad. Ten episode drama about just of women sort of working our way through like actual Lakeview. They could really feels authentic grief. So if you're looking for a show to app, that's not it one funny one I like camping which is coming up on HBO in October. And it starts Jennifer garner. As a very, hyper controlling, passive, aggressive woman who arranges a camping trip with all her friends, and that's a series. Yeah. Lena Dunham and Jenny. Wrote it there from girls, and I it was a British series. They've adapted it and David Tennant plays. Jennifer, Garner's husband. Juliette Lewis is in it. And she's like completely like. Juliette lewis. That's what you wrote Juliette Lewis in full Juliette Lewis mode when she was she's at full Juliet mode. I you can't take your eyes offer. Exactly. And she gets the whole group this port. Jennifer garner plays. This woman who has the whole weekend planned out and Julia Louis places free-spirited comes in Mike messes up all the place, I found it really kind of delightful and funny and. Painfully awkward in all that all that other stuff. We went are comedies to be these days, and that's HBO. HBO? Amazon has Matthew wieners new show. You know, the madman guy. Yeah. It's called the Romanovs. All anybody has seen including yours. Truly are just, you know, the promo with the music like we haven't seen an episode yet. However, I go ahead and recommended as one of my top ten because everybody's gonna watch it just to see if it's any good because it's you know, his first thing since madman kept his title, Nathan Bennett. It's got like all kinds of people in it. It's about people who believe themselves to be Romanov's descendants of the last Sar. Current times though. Am I doing anything for you? Not really. What about Murphy Brown? Murphy Brown coming back. Yeah. No, thanks. I. As far as reboots go. I think in Murphy Brown deserves one Candice Bergen amazing, and I don't know. Are there any former hundred? Just like she comes back to TV is Scott like kind of a morning Joe type show because she is, you know, a little bit unease in the current political climate and her son remember the baby that she had Dan Quayle said all that stuff about single moms, and it was a big controversy. He's all grown up. They've got a guy playing him and the son works for a competing network called the wolf news network. So you can figure it out from them. Okay. Wow. So there's a lot of stuff happening. Again. A lot is I was looking at the other page. There's a lot of stuff coming back. Oh, yeah. The is back. Do you watch? I can't remember you didn't really go for the deuce last time. He hit Ranko and the seventies and porn. I gotta watch that. I can't remember if I saw any of it. But I like everyone that's in there. You know, you might be able to just start with season two. I mean, I thought they were really good things about season. When I'd be interested to see what would happen. If somebody's just started with season dudes, just pretended. They watched season one. But which I think a lot of people do that, by the way. I like the show a lot. I broadly. They're sort of doing sort of the history of pornography in America. The women characters are so much more interesting. You know, it's full of mobsters and pimps and James Branko. Every time the women are on the screen. I think it's a much better show. All right. Pointed out to me that that's how most people feel about porn. And I'm like, oh, yeah. That was a good thing. Dr hall of Famer the great Hank Stewart or Washington Post. Tv critic, always a pleasure. My friend. Live here you live in DC. I assume in DC we're coming their first week of October.
