"hill house" Discussed on WBZ NewsRadio 1030

"Hill House and Senate leaders announcing they had reached an agreement to keep state government funded through October. It's a 16.5 $1,000,000,000 interim budget. Neither the House or Senate had been able to come up with a full year spending plan because of the pandemic. Lawmakers are in the last days of their formal legislative session. After Boston's mayor proposed a 20 per cent cut off the Boston police overtime budget and the City Council made it official last month. Counselors and bpd officials met today to begin working out the details of making it a reality. We're from the BBC Madison, Roger's. So the bpd overtime budget was $60 million. Last year, they spent 72 million so they're effectively trying to spend 24 million less in the matter of making that happen is anything but simple. Bpd has a mandated number of officers they need to keep in the field at all. Times. Bpd. Superintendent Jim Hudson says the most effective way he sees to decrease over time is have more officers to cover those shifts specifically out injured backto work. Is the number of officers who are out sick and injured is higher than it's ever been. And more officers are retiring early to less. Officers means more overtime. So many demands on the police start breaking down. They say it is an opportunity to catch a break. And they take their opportunity of the meeting today, just the first of many trying to figure out how to somehow cut the budget while growing the force and stay committed to the ideas of accountability and transparency that caused the cuts in the first place.

In a changing climate, the work of botanical artists takes on new meaning

"I'm standing in the art gallery of the Beautiful James J Hill House on Summit Avenue in Saint Paul. This thirty six thousand square square foot mansion built for the Railroad Titan in eighteen. Ninety one might seem like a strange place to take climate cast. But starting Saturday. You can see an exhibit focused on and how climate change is changing forests in northern Minnesota. It's called art from the edge of the boreal forest and it highlights the ten tree species in Minnesota most vulnerable to climate change. I'm here with the exhibit curator. Brian sought Brian. What's Genesis for this exhibit? Normally we exhibit exhibit work. Here that focuses on our permanent collection which consists of benny images of that iconic landscape. So I thought it was an interesting contemporary book end to our collection to focus on the technically trained artists who are taking a very scientific approach in a very quiet and assertive way on our changing climate. Climate change impacting northern Minnesota faster than the rest of the state winters have warmed about five to six degrees in northern Minnesota. Since one thousand nine hundred seventy how does that reflect flecked the art. We're seeing here. Well basically what you're experiencing with those varying temperatures is that a boreal forest relies heavily on a long cold winters and short warm summers with apple rainfall when that balance starts to change the trees ecosystem starts to break down so so which ten Minnesota tree species are featured here. And why well they're broken into two groups the first group which is behind me the trees that are most honorable to change like the Balsam poplar the Balsam for The Jack Pine or some examples and these are trees that are familiar to us all and when we close your eyes and define fine the Minnesota landscape. Those are some of the trees that we visualize also included in the exhibition. Are those trees That will be replacing. We'll be migrating into This boreal forest and we know we're already seeing tree. Species begin to shift in northern Minnesota. Now so this is really not a future issue. The Red Maple for example is proliferating in the northern forests. Are The forest changing significantly already. Well they are changing and the are changing measurably of course in in a human lifetime we may not be able to detect that change but scientists are able to point that out like you mentioned the red maples and example so there are examples apples. And I think that's what's so important about this exhibition title. 'cause it's from the edge of the boreal forest which is that southern part of this great biomass home? THAT SPANS MO- most of northern North America. But it's also the boreal forces on the edge of some significant changes. We're lucky to have one of the artists today. The Day March Davis March. You in the other artists have been exploring this topic. What for about ten years? What changes have you seen or even felt when you're out in nature well well like all of us notice? It's getting warmer The storms are getting worse and I think over the last ten years. There's been some more storms up in the boundary waters up in the boreal forest area The blow downs in fires in ten years. So I guess those are the big things. How did it feel for you to work on this project picked? It makes me feel good. It makes me feel like I'm doing something productive. Sometimes we look at big problems. It's hard to figure you're out what you can do as an individual but this gives me personally a lot of satisfaction the exhibit here at the James J hill houses called art from the edge of the boreal forest forest. It's open from Saturday through June twenty-first

"Today. We're going to enter the WU. Tang clan I love that so much I was. You May as well have reached across the table and slap me. When you told me I was like? Oh I'm going to do this next and you're like I'm going to do the Wu Tang clan and I was like what and you really did your due diligence. You might have done a lot of research focused all right first of all. I watch the show. Time for part documentary series. Tang clan of Mike's in men came out in May two thousand nineteen It was filmed to commemorate the twenty fifth anniversary of the group. And actually there's also a dramatize who series called Wu Tang in American saga which came out. on Hulu in September twenty nineteen It portrays a fictionalized account of the the formation of the Tang clan over ten episodes but I decided I was going to the source. Yeah I was GonNa Watch the documentary. Good good for you documentary. I read some chapters in some books. Wow I read some websites. I listened to a lot of music primary sources I am I am here for Al.. I am your as of this moment. Just for just for one tiny moment in the blip of the timeline of the universe. Im Your expert on the Tang clan. That's very exciting to me as a CO host most of this podcast that I am sitting in the presence of the current expert of the Wu. Tang clan this is. I can't wait to learn it. You're so right off the bat the term. MC It can mean master of ceremonies which is usually the only person at a gathering that was allowed to use a microphone. It could also stand for microphone controller or Mike Cheka It is also the general inverse skilled rapper and to be a true. Mc means being able to perform under any circumstance to the ultimate performer and an emcee masters. The moment and makes every move appeared deliberate and I realize as I read the definition that you can tell I am the whitest. We are rivaled only by your good friend here Lauren. Also one of the whitest white girl I am very. Are you aware and I apologize in advance. If I mess anything up please let me know and happy to take feedback on this especially because this is a topic that I I that I start from. Scratch basically exactly all right so if you are an expert too and you already own the complete route Tang discography and you have a relevant tattoo. A to somewhere on your person and you just wanted to make sure that I got the names of the members right here. They are so right off the bat. You've Rizza JR izza older. You bastard goes face. Killa La Method Man Ray Kwan Inspector Deck Masekela and you God and then later on you had capitana so now you can go ahead and forward to the sparkly quiz music if you want but if you wanna hear the whole story buckling so picture it. Staten Island late. One thousand nine hundred eighty S. Oh ooh I know your favorite of the boroughs so the Park Hill housing complex which is located in the Clifton neighborhood on Staten Island had become the site of steadily increasing crime crime and drug abuse beginning in the early nineteen seventies by the late nineteen eighties to gain the nickname of crack hill due to the many arrests for possession in or sale of crack cocaine that were taking place place in and around the development. The bulk of the Park Hill neighborhood had been built in the nineteen sixties During New York City's plan for urban renewal projects in the majority of US residents were African. American can the complex consisted of fifteen acres of six story. Brick apartment buildings hearing from former residence doesn't exactly paint the most glowing portrait but kids of all ages in this complex played outside listening to music. DJ -Ing break-dancing Designing Graffiti and doing all kinds of other activities. That would later come to define hip hop so in their early early twenties. Cousins Robert Diggs Gary Greis and Russell. Tyrone Jones formed a group named force of the imperial master later known as the all in together. Now how crew. So Gary and Russell lived in Brooklyn but will come to Staten Island to visit their cousin Robert. Each of the three members recorded under an alias. Gary grace was the genius genius. Robert Diggs was Prince Raquin or the scientists in Russell. Jones was the specialist the group never signed to a major label but they caught the attention of the New York City rap scene through their homemade tapes by nine hundred ninety. One genius and prints were. Kim resigned to separate record labels but the label seemed to have strong armed them into doing some songs that they didn't didn't really feel so for example prince teams for a single was called. ooh I love you rookie. Ladies Man in the showtime documentary shows parts of this music video from nineteen ninety one and it is very nice it is so ninety S. It's so he you know. He's all dressed in early nineties. Ladies have that bright makeup on the big hair and like the shoulder pads and it's like Ooh we love rocky and it's like China he's like yeah all the ladies love me and this is when you listen to his later stuff like that was that was not really his vibe boy. So that didn't go so well for Prince or team didn't go for further genius genius so the cousins refocused their efforts and they give themselves some new nicknames. So the genius became Jessica cheesy pronounce. Gizeh and prints are keen became name Rizza. Oh showers the Russell Jones became older dirty bastard or ODBC R- is said that he knew the best rappers on Staten Island and he wanted to put a home-cooked meal of hip hop of real people. Together there early nineties rise of West Coast. Music shifted mainstream hip hop visibility. Away from New York City and Rizza decided to change all in the early nineties so recipe and collaborating with Dennis Coles who was later known as ghost face killer. They decided to create a hip hop group whose ethics would be a blend of of eastern philosophy picked up from Kung Fu movies. Five percent nation teachings from the streets and comic books so five percent nation is an American revisionist movement which split from the Nation of Islam in nineteen sixty three so this movement rejected being called a religion preferring instead to be known as a culture and a way of life in its teachings are referred to as supreme mathematics which you'll hear over and over you know when they give interviews and talk about you know Wu Tang. They're always talking about the supreme mathematics. Okay cool so Liu. Tang clan assembled in late nineteen ninety-two with Rizza as the defacto leader and the group's producer Rizza an old dirty bastard adopted the name for the group after the film Shaolin and Wu Tang so in contemporary China Chinese martial arts sales are generally classified into two major groups. You have Wudong which is named named after the Wudang Mountains in Shaolin named after the Shaolin Monastery Risen said that Wu Tang was the best sword style of martial arts and the tongue is like a sword soared and so I say that we have the best lyrics so therefore we are Tang clan. Love it the group also developed backrooms for their name including witty unpredictable. Edible talent and natural game okay and wisdom of the universe and the truth of Allah for the nation of the gods. I feel like I've heard that. Yeah Yeah so this is a background. It wasn't like the actual thing but it's fun when they can do that to make it so the group pulled together three hundred dollars to record their first track at firehouse studios the song protect. Your neck was released independently on Tang records in Nineteen ninety-two. The song made them the most talked about new act in New York City's underground and announced a new brand of hardcore hip pop in in the documentary talked to some of their former management. who were like? Okay here's what we did like we would send someone at a record store like ask for the new. ooh Tang Song and they'd be like we don't have that and then they would have somebody else come back in and be like two of us have the new routines and they'd be like no and then somebody would come in like playing the Wutang boombox and people would gather around be like yeah. This is great and they'd be like yeah. Wish you buy some of this so it was like guerrilla me. Yeah it worked. uh-huh course they would also like early on. They would kind of show up at Radio Studios like a colleague Ecology station or something like that with album. You should play this. Maybe we should do that with our podcast. Why haven't we done that? Well maybe not with radio station. 'cause that's the University of Rochester banging on the glass door. Be Like you should thumb drives us. Yeah exactly thumb drive you should play. Yeah podcast I'm your radio station. What I'm sure you're three? AM timeslot is open. Yeah of course. It is so risen the management including his brother divine bovine wanted to make sure that the group's members wouldn't be saddled with exclusive contracts with a particular record label. He wanted them to be able to launch future solo projects so there was a little bit of difficulty difficulty in finding a record label that would sign the Tang clan while still allowing each member to record solo albums with other labels. Okay seve Rifkin. Allowed records agreed need to all of us in Nineteen ninety-three so loud would get the first option to sign a solo artist. But then they would be allowed to talk to other studios so if you were like I'm GonNa go out on my own loud could say okay. I would give you this much money and then you were free to shop around and then still pick is the best thing. That's a nice deal. Yeah it was in. This was pretty pretty rare for those times especially when labels like owned Like decades so signing with records everybody agreed that led to the November remember nineteen ninety-three release of their debut album and Tang parentheses thirty six chambers.

"As has the foreboding sense of something bad happening to know, you find out at the end of the pilot that Nell has died Stephen sees her ghosts in his apartment in the end of that first episode. So all of that is set up and it builds to this fifth episode in such a fantastic way such that the fifth episode is able to stand on its own as a great piece of television. But it also tread so perfectly on everything that was set up before it, it really is really well well delivered in well paced, those first five episodes, and really I think you get the six episode then which is its own piece. And then as I said seven eight nine ten are Luke leaves the funeral and goes right out to where he at wherever he's going. And we think he's going to the house, and we have the tenth episode being what it is in the ninth episode being what it is. So I think it's a really well structured show. I think they didn't act. Excellent job with that as I said, a significant change from the book, but thematically on point I think, and if it's not it's a book that I only really read after the TV show, and maybe because we were gonna podcast, but it is a book that I'm not sure if it had been a beloved book of mine, if I would have felt the same way about the changes. But to me, the changes are really resonant like the the ideas and the themes of the novel, and what causes people to have problems in the novel at hill house. They're really resonant and really just like right on point with what causes people to have problems in the TV show. I if he'll house and what it ultimately does. I actually think the weakest part of the nation was I didn't think I think the interior of the house is spectacular. They built a two story walkable set on sound stage. So that is a house they built in sound stage. I think the exterior lift a little bit to be desired. I the hill house. That's described in the book is nestled into the hills. And you have this long drive on..

"I really remember is in children of men, and there's an extended sequence in that movie where it's superintendents. I mean, the cameras being shot at really the characters that are following the camera are being shot at and when alternately it cuts away. I mean, I think the first time I watched it. I I like gasped like tears down because it was you're used to those moments. Like, you're used to the emotion being taken out by these cuts cut away cut away cut away. And so you don't have the Bill that forms when you don't cut away. I think that when you're talking about these extended takes building that like the extended take the monologue that we've talked about a lot from mister Dudley. There are edits at the beginning of that back and forth to Henry Thomas just standing there. And then eventually it is one longer take. And I I think there's a lot to be said for building emotion through these longer takes and not letting the audience have the relief of moving around with. In the scene and cutting away that your character in this. And you're watching this all play out to camera as an observer. And you're not like shifting around. You're taking it all in some of that. I think the first seventeen minutes, or whatever I think that's what works best when you're talking about going down into the basement and stuff like that that doesn't work as well. For me. In this episode for shores, I think the first seventeen minutes when characters are arriving, and when they're they're all dealing with everything differently. That's when this episode work best for me. But I still think maybe episode five is is the best episode totally especially with the reveal at the end of the Ben MC lady, it's just it's just so horrible. Because you at this point the premise of the show. I mean at the end of the first episode is that Nell is dead. And Stephen who's never seen a goes to before finally sees a ghost in the form of his dead sister. So that's like a real a real bang type of moment. But you you come to you come to really appreciate Nell as a character and not just as a plot device in the episodes building up to that. But a sp-. Especially in the bent neck laity in that whole episode. It's just such a good showcase for the character. It's such a good showcase for Victoria address as an actress. And you know, that it is it is going to have this very sad ending even in the moments where she's like dancing with the ghost of Arthur like dancing with the ghost of her husband. You're now re contextualising those scenes from the first episode of her just like kind of drapes it traipsing around through the house by herself in that dress. You know, this is going to end poorly. You don't know that she's going to end with her as the bent neck, lady, right? Just the journey of that. I think is the journey of hill house consolidated, I think that the entire arc of the whole season of the whole series. Hopefully. Of being put through your paces and being put through traumatic horror at almost every turn and coming to to this place of like a motion relief, followed by more despair. I think so much of that that's on display throughout the whole show with the exception of those final moments of relief as Mike Flanagan explains. It the final scene of the whole show to Mike bloom. I feel like all of that is really on display in this one episode that it is just it is to showcase for the haunting Phil house and by far and away the slam dunk episode of the series from. Yeah. Yeah. And it's great. I think that this show is able to do that in the fifth episode because it really as you pointing out like, you know, things are going to go bad for now. You know, they did go bad for now. You don't necessarily know how or why? And what you find out through those first four episodes is is maybe what was going on with these other characters while all that was happening. And you're also learning a lot about what? To them when they were kids. So that when you get to the fifth episode you've seen and heard about the neck lady a ton. She's one of the first ghost that's mentioned in the show the pilot episode. So this is something that's been present..

"So maybe it's just a matter of my own expectations going into it. I liked it in the long night of the soul element of it. Where all the characters are really processing what's happened. And I like how it makes the horror with grief, and I liked it. It did. So in a way that felt like a stage play, and I understand that that may be the same thing that you don't like about it in love that aspect, but I like that about it. Because I I think what you're dealing within this show. Throughout is you're dealing with that dichotomy or that struggle between the jump scares the scares of the horror that you're seeing what the bowler hat guy or with the bet neck lady, and the actual grief, and the ghost that these characters are carrying around with them the adult characters specifically, and that juxtaposition of the actual horrors that they experienced when they are in the house and the memories, and the echoes of the horrors and the ghost that they've created in their lives as a result of what happened in that house that you're seeing them carry with them throughout the adult. I think that is what is smashed together. In this episode, most directly, I think more directly than any other episode for me because all the characters are front and center as I said, I five episodes, they do feature all characters, but normally they're one character at the front and center of the episode, and you're seeing some of the other characters throughout, but this is a show piece for all of them, and it's called to storms right because there's the storm in the past where there's this night at the house that this always happening. And there's the storm in the present where you're. Dealing with Nels layout and the storm that's happening there. And you're seeing the father come into the story with the adults for the first time he's in the room with the other adults for the first time in the present telling of the story, I thought that was just really effective in terms of letting each of these characters process their individual moments, but also collectively dealing with them in the room with each other. And I think they're just little little character moments. How each of them process approaching the casket differently, and what that looks like for each of them. And what that feels like for each of them. I think because you're not cutting away. And because you're lingering it has a lot of significance. I also thought there was a really cool moment where the camera has has swirled around the room in that layout room and glue seen the coffin, and then we see Nels ghost in the background when it around other moments. Like that in the episode. I thought really worked for me. So I understand from a filmmaking perspective, I have almost no complaints about it. I think it's very impressive. I think that. You know, the moments where you see Nell in like bent, neck lady mode in the background, suddenly, and you just wonder like how did you guys pull that off? Why what was like how how much running around needed to occur like many like sweaty takes of getting Victoria, pa- dreading out of the coffin into bet neck lady mode. Like, how did you pull that off? You know, that that's up is very impressive to me. I just felt like maybe there is a better way to tell this particular story. I felt like some of the acting seems were showing for me there's a lot of great actors on this show. And even the ones that I didn't love in this scene. I think are very talented people. But there's a lot of like the Shirley stuff really wasn't registering. Well, for me, I really I'm not a big fan of her husband is a character. I didn't love Kevin. And like the whole like, you know, that it's going to come out that he's been taking the book money, and then everything and like the basement of Kevin making out with the oh, and Shirley catching it like there's just a little soap opera for me in some of the reveals of the again, I get it for sure anytime, you do like a technical marvel episode. The question becomes like is the juice worth the squeeze? And did we need to do it this way they shut down production for six weeks to pull this off? And while it's certainly like you talked about a significant. Impressive technical performance. And I think for me what the extended takes the first one..

"The house who noticed he out of the house at night all of that is right there from the novel. So I that they were great. And like you mentioned earlier about Robert long street his monologue. One of the highlights of this series for me is that monologue. And there are a lot of great monologues throughout the the show. I think that is definitely a hallmark of what they were doing. Here are those extended monologues are those extended takes. And I think I had read something that creator had said about this the near that Flanagan was talking about when he shooting this. He's a little concerned because from an audience standpoint, it might be easier to not pay attention when just one character is speaking, but you had to put a lot of faith and trust in your actors, and you have to do subtle things. Like, maybe the camera subtly pushes in on them, while they're speaking to draw you into the story that was something that he wanted to bring into this show. And I think he did to great effect. Certainly your mileage may vary. Josh about these extended takes I know you and I have different opinions on episode six which is certainly worthy. Extended takes are put front and center in the show. Yeah. I think if we had been talking closer to the time that I watched the show in the first run and binged through the show, I would have been a little sharper as to why I really didn't love to storms at least not the way that everybody seemed to really go Gaga about it. Again. Like, I got a lot of like preconceptions heading into hill house from people who had watched it. And I kept hearing about all there's there's the one off episode. There's the episode of that's just one take. It's so good. And I think that I'm I'm a little bit. I'm just a little cold on the one take episode at this point. I just feel like it's happening. A lot right now on TV. There's really got to be a really good reason for it right now for it to keep going like Sam S mail nail that like we don't need to just be seeing that every single other show, and I know that that's a wild exaggeration. But it just felt it just felt a little needless to me, and then some of the bickering back and forth between the cast. Members. I felt like that was material you could probably get to in a cleaner way than what felt to me. Like a one off episode like a one or episode for the sake of having a winner episode in the arsenal of hill. House. I understand that. I'm Mike on. I'm basically on an island with that take just they did not it did not land with me nearly as well as some of the other moments in this series and some of the other episodes and especially coming off the bench neck lady, which I thought was the high Mark of the whole show. This is the very next episode. And I think bent neck lady is such a tough act to follow. And it just didn't measure up for me..

"And it's crazy that is a really rough and great episode for sure Angie was she she was the Ben neck lady. She was the Ben Mechlin is always urge disease. It is. I don't understand the time. Loops another lost connection, preconceived ING her own demise. And and maybe you could argue faded for her own demise. Like, she just the fear of it is ultimately when led to it. This is a theme that is a very prevalent throughout the novel where we have the character of Eleanor or Nel who is somebody who has had a rough go of it in her life, and who goes to hill house, maybe wanting to find herself and becomes ultimately the victim of hill house, and she is the one that house is reaching out to she is the one they're writing on the wall, come home Nell, just like in this TV show. And she is ultimately the one who the house claims in a way that it only the house can. And so the story of Eleanor in the TV show is very much like the story of Eleanor in the novel, and this thematically idea that maybe whatever your problems are he'll house exacerbates them. And will put you in a position where they become who you are. Define who you are. We saw that happen in the TV show with the mother with ultimately what happens with Livia crane? We see that we see that play out with her where she has some underlying issue, and she goes to hill house, and it's incredibly exacerbated. There's that fantastic monologue in episode seven that mister Dudley. The caretaker gives where he's like basically saying like, you your wife, maybe needs to take a little bit of a break from this house. And he tells a story about what's happened with other women at this house or with other info at this house, including why his own family doesn't spend time at this house at night. And it's because there are things in the house which play into whatever your inner, psychological torment are it's fascinating because the house rewards as well there is the red room, Josh, which is the room of requirement that just gives you kind of. Every. There's all but it also takes away. It also exacerbates whatever darkness is within you. It's a fascinating house for sure it really is. And there's there's just there's you mentioned the Dudley monologue and without getting like into into a specific one. I do think that that ended up being one of the unexpected two lights of this show where there's just a lot of moments like that there's a lot of moments where the actors are just being allowed to really just show off that monologue. In specific is the one that stands out to me the most when Horace is talking about all the atrocities that occurred here in the cameras just never once breaking away from the actor Robert long street. It's just it's such an unflinching juicy moment for an actor. I got to imagine that that is a career highlight for that guy. So it's just it's it's such a great scene or even like a lot of like the moments with Nell specifically that final monologue that she gets to deliver towards the end of the series when she's finally able to have this moment alone with her siblings who can now see her in this state sort of a blade runner. Ask it felt like to me like the whole like tears like, yeah. Exactly. I've seen things. Yeah. There's just a lot of great character moments in here that I kind of didn't expect one of the things that I've been hearing about hill house before I hopped into it was a lot of the reactions are like I really hate these characters like a lot of people who I who I trust who had watched the show or we're starting to watch the show is like is this going to get any better..

"Characteristics of these characters and they've placed them onto what alternately is this family of people and the family of people is made up of multiple children. You've got you've got five kids in in total and the two parents. So you obviously as you're going through the first five episodes are getting a point of view of each of the five children what it was like for them to live in hill house in the past. And then what that means for what they're dealing with in the present one is a funeral director. One is a psychologist or psychiatrist some kind of brain doctor, but his struggling with maybe her own issues. One is a writer who has written about the family's experiences with hill house, and maybe has taken some liberties and has perhaps in some ways isolated himself from the family as a result of his actions. One is clearly struggling with whatever happened at hill house. He is a heroin addict. Which is certainly all the vogue and TV nowadays as is reflecting of our modern times. And then one is a younger woman who also seems to be she's the twin of the heroine addict. And they seem to have been the youngest children at hill house, and thus the most affected by whatever went on there. And so she is struggling as well. And so we really see throughout the first five episodes what their experiences at hill house were like, and what that means for them as in the current in the current realm, and then it shows a ten episode series. So the second half of the season really builds upon everything that happened. In the first five episodes and season six episode six as the episode you talked about that too technical marvel and then the final three episodes are sort of a race to the finish. I really think the way they show is structured enough. Can't be said about how how fantastically it handled the story, and how it weaves all of these character narratives with each other. At builds this quilt that we then watch on Ravel through the rest of the season. Yeah. And I think much like we talked about with homecoming. We talked about with maniac, and we're we're looking at a similar deal here with haunting of hill house while while homecoming is getting a second season. We've talked about the possibility of could it be a very different story than the first season of that show maniac. There are no plans for a second season of maniac. I'm curious what the future of the haunting of hill. House is going to be I do not believe that there has been any news of a second season of the haunting of hill house and again without spoiling. What happens in the story? I will say this strikes me as a very self contained story that I cannot imagine the stories of the people that we are meeting within the context of this first season of the show would continue in any capacity in fact net flicks is going to have a very similar show in its roster fairly soon lock and key which is based on one of my very favorite comic book series of all time doing that. Yeah. They they are it doesn't take the pilot. That was created. No, no, lock and key has been through through quite the adventure. I believe to pilots have been produced for that show. In addition to the third or Netflix. Netflix ordered a straight to series at tation of locking key. Which is a very similar story to haunting of hill house. It's kind of haunted house structure. It's got a family that has gone through a trauma, and is now dealing with a very traumatic situation inside of a haunted house. It is written by Joe hill who is the son of Stephen King. So it's got that king insensibility Joe hill who did not even take daddy's name does not need. The Stephen King trademark to knock out. Some really incredible stories really one of the best comic books I've ever read. And I cannot encourage it more. Gabriel Rodriguez is the artists. He's incredible. I really don't know how they're going to do a show of that. But I think what they have locking key. If locking key is as good on. Netflix says it is in comic book form, there's really going to be no need to do another season of the haunting uphill house..

"So I I remember on Wilson being and that it's been a long time since I've seen it. It's not he plays, Luke Sanderson. Like, it's not a great. It should be a great role. It's not a great movie that movie the haunting. So I I knew about the property, but I didn't know what to expect from the director for sure and he dragged it every single episode. I mean, multiple episodes with with multiple writers. But every single episode much like one of the the other shows that we have discussed here in this twenty eighteen in review series homecoming Osama smell directed. Every single one of those Mike Flanagan directed. Every single episode of the haunting of hill house in a really really impressive job. You know, there's there's some stuff that I'm sure we'll get into that. There's there's one episode in particular that I think everybody has lost their minds over in a way that I really just didn't. But even from a technical perspective. I have to. Effect. What was done on that episode for those are in the no that's two storms episodes six just a really really impressive filmmaker with such a clear sense of vision juggling so many stories. This is a show that is told across multiple points in time. So there's a lot of story material to keep track of their essentially to full casts to be raining in wrangling here and really just a very deft job by Mike Flanagan, who is not just directing the show, but is show running as well just really got to tip your hat your bowl or cap, even I know God that is. There is some scary for you could ghost here. But bowler hat man's got to be pretty much number one on the list. Yeah. Terrifying. And you're right about the deafness are you're just you're right about the work that went into this. And the two casts are part of this from a non spoiler perspective. Just setting up the story. What you've got a sensually is a story about a young family who has moved into a house. I believe it's in the berkshires. Maybe this is part of the Emily, FOX fear. I believe it's in western Massachusetts. So as well that I think is it runs with the source material, generally speaking that you're talking about a Massachusetts based allegedly haunted house, although I'm not sure that the family that moves into this house knows the history of it. They are moving in to rehab the house and flip it and then make it make make make it to their dream house. But unfortunately, as they're living in this house. They are experiencing some horrible stuff. You even see in the first episode that some great horror went down in this house and the family that you're seeing twenty thirty years later twenty years later, I should say is still reeling from the effects of whatever hap-. Opened that horrible horrible night in hill house. And so what you see throughout the series as you see some of what's happened in the past and some of what's happening in the present. And you see those stories just being cut together. And you're learning more about what happened in the past gradually through these stories. It doesn't proceed in a linear fashion. Sometimes we go back over the same territory from a different characters point of view. The first five episodes of the series are really bottle episodes in a way, not bottle episodes. But let's just say they're limited to one characters main point ear inn, dear to my lost loving heart where it's very very similar in that structure. You gotta Jack flashback you've gotta Sawyer flashback. You've got you've got very similar similar storytelling structure here with at least the first several episodes of the series, right? Because what they've done in the the hunting of hill. House book is not that the haunting of hill. House book is a paranormal investigator has brought with him to people and member of the family who owns the house. A younger member of the family who owns the house, and they interact with the caretakers of the house. They know the house to be haunted, and they're investigating exactly how taunted in what that looks like those characters that are part of that each have their own attributes some are there's maybe like a libertine like a free spirited woman. There's there's a woman who very troubled in the young male characters drunk, and he sort of a very party oriented guy, and you've got the doctor, and they've taken in the Netflix show a lot of the.

"And I remember watching a scene toward the. The end where to go sir talking to each other. And I'm like, wait a minute. Like, that's not you gone from horror where a human involved in the fear of the unknown into fantasy. And that's fine. If you want to do that. But understand that like this whole thing is predicated on our fear of the unknown. And as soon as you do that where it's like, you're watching tea party. It's like you're watching like to busboys at a restaurant, and you're the only one of the restaurant they're moaning about their job like, well, wait a minute. This isn't this doesn't have that same. We broke the the contract, which is why I think the climax of the series feels so much smaller than everything that's gone before it feels like a good, but unexceptionable episode of Buffy or monster Louis episode of X files where you got. Here's the big bad. Here's how we deal with it. Let's move on. And also a real, and I know you've read the book. Yeah. Longtime ago. Okay. I gasped felt so betrayed by what they have done to Shirley Jackson's understanding of this book, which is this one line. And I don't know that I can say what they do. To it. But the thing that anyone most most famous line in the book, which is whatever walks there, walks alone. Yeah. And you know, already I must say like Shirley Jackson's novel hunting of hell house was nominated for the national book award this same time as Roth and fellow all these. So she's already been completely ignored by all these urinating men. So finally, she gets her do, and we're going to talk about the hidden genius of this woman. Who is also this you know, sort of famous feminist housewife all of these things, and we took the point of it. Yeah. And we thought you know, maybe she could use an edit. Well, not only did I find the final episode unexceptional. But it is also very explain me. It's scary. Like, everything that up until then has kind of been you are intuitive. What is going on with these people, and how the trauma of what happened in the past segment of the story has affected them throughout their lives. All of a sudden now you have them kind of explaining how it has. Will you see I never felt this way because I felt that win I should blah, blah, blah, and everything is made into text to me in Iraq and expositions, particularly strange. Yeah. Back end exposition sort of it takes away from the power of some of the performances, particularly I feel like Carla Gino of who plays. The mother of the family really has a feel for this woman's slippage into kind of uncertainty about. Fantasy and reality, and what's dream and the pain that she's feeling about her kids in about her fear for them and her knowledge that something in her is not right? But knowing that she still has to protect them, and that mental illness doesn't preclude her love for them and wanting to protect she's so good in so criminally I feel like under cast and things I just wanna see her all the time. Right. Yeah. But the acting is not uniformly. Great new and in episodes like episode six where it's long takes those differences in skill set kind of get exacerbated their leaning on certain actors over and above their skill set. There's also a significant chunk of this story that has to be carried in part by kid actors some of them, I think are a little bit more interesting than others, some of whom are more cute than good and other ones of whom are really I really liked the little kid who plays Luke the little glasses real just a really intense kind of odd delivery in it. In a real kid weird in a way that I really liked so berry, do you think that the shifting of this from the book to the show where they do make it a family? Do you think that's kind of contributing to the fact that they have to or they feel they have to undercut the that one sentence because if you're going to talk about it in terms of family, you are changing wants something central about the book. Right. We are conditioned in American television to think that family things have to tell a certain message about family. And so I think they were sort of magnetized to that message. But what is sort of interesting about it?.

"And I too am not a horror person and thought I gotta do this for surely and found myself in the same sort of situation where it's like, I don't do horror. But if it's an allegory about motherhood, and my own guilt than I'm in, you know, and I also think it's a really an interesting. I love that the director said, okay, I'm going to actually I'm going to turn this into a real family because in the book, they are not actually connected. There's a lot of images to the names in the book, but it's not a real family. So I thought that was brilliantly conceived of and again, I think it is a lovely and heartbreaking. Meditation for me on how we all try to keep our children safe. And how we can't it's interesting that both of you said, and I have sometimes said this myself to like on I'm not that much of a harm. But I think and then you get people who listen to the show and say, well, why would you do thing when none of you like, and that's not real. I don't think that's really what it means. I don't like what people are often talking about when they say Har, which is gore, and we can't do the buttocks not all of horror at all. And Barry when you say, you're a huge Shirley Jackson fan. I love Oh you do hard. harm the lottery is it that about myself, despite the fact that Stephen King was one of the most influential writers on me when I was growing up. Reading Stephen King. And that's a lot of that is har-, you know, Glenn has kinds of horror that he really likes. This is the kind of horror that I like a lot more. Yes. Than some of what people are talking about when they say horror, which is something different. I just find it physically uncomfortable to watch her because I just the adrenaline response. It's not pleasurable the way it is. I think some people that are like give me all the jump scare. Exactly THEO and Shirley in the car like I'm going to do that once I'm gonna do it once. Yeah. And I and I spoil that for you people on purpose. So that you know, it's coming because otherwise you are going to be a little bit yet. Yeah. I enjoyed this quite a lot. But daily by the end, not the ending by the real travesty the middle late part. I think is very good in motive ways where I felt like it struggled, and there we haven't talked about yet is they're five kids in this family that might be too many, especially with Steve. Well, that's the thing. I feel like when the show is at its least effective is when it tries to be too neat by going through each kid and do each kid has each reaction. Each kid has this thing happened really the first five episodes are sort of one episode per kid to find out their story. That's more Steve than I wanted is actually for the first episode starting off with a whole hour about Steve made me think this show is going to be less interesting than it. Ultimately was I might have been able to condense those five. Of it. And that's a very common. Netflix process make ten episodes when they could make eight that problem is I'm dealing with my family, and my writing it's like, oh my God, I dated that guy. You don't need a ghost to know when the house there's a thing late in the peace, and it's toward that finale where you get a kind of an each kid has to go through a little similar dream experience. And it's like, and he still believes interested in still relying, and I even felt like Shirley, who's played by Elizabeth Rieser is also not my favorite. I responded to almost everyone else in the story more than two those two and those are the two who anger in the first to episode, right? That's unfortunate entry into the thing. Because it does slow it down considerably. I think the back half of the season where we're starting to get answers is and this is not just because it's Netflix explode, and it's ten episodes when it should be six or eight. But inevitably in a mystery of any kind the answers are less interesting than the question..

"If the Netflix series, the haunting of hill house isn't currently scaring the heck out of you. It may well be scaring the heck out of someone, you know, loosely based on the nineteen Fifty-nine Shirley Jackson novel. It tells what is in many ways, an old fashioned go story shuttling between the past and the present the series traces the effects of trauma on a family that wants unwisely chose to spend the summer living in a house that is up to no good. I'm Glen wilder. And I'm Linda Holmes today. We're talking about Netflix. The haunting of hill house with me and Glenn in the studio is berry Hardiman from NPR's weekend edition, high berry. I we are always so happy to have you with us, and you had actually come to my desk and said, Linda, I wanna talk about the haunting of hill house. And this was before I had even seen it. Now, we have brought this into being now, we're doing it. I know and I'm gonna get to you. I'm gonna go over to Glenn. I what did you think of the haunting uphill house? Well, as has been established horror is my. Thing. But if I'm going to do horror. This is my jam. Yeah. Give me a dark spooky mansion. So that even when I'm bored. I can still be in that dark spooky mentioned space. And then flash on things that I love like Qilu lake Rebecca like cash Lovato, like the seventh guest like murder at the house on the hill. Like the house with a clock in its walls moon, not movie and not for nothing. Also in this particular series, get my HGTV on I figure that's going to happen. When the hey knock through that wall. Give me a severe Tessa turn housekeeper give me characters that I can care about enough. So that I don't want them to be fed to a figurative or literal meek grinder give me a ghost story that is about the way violence can leave kind of a hole in the world that can't be healed by time or by grief because gore to me is very boring jump scares which to be fair. This has plenty of I always resent them because it's like, congratulations. You triggered an automatic response. You must be very proud of you shine a flashlight my face next because that's requires go dog when you blow in its is, exactly. Give me scares the tap name. What happens when you blowing dockside like flinch? Sorry. They're you know, thought something about it. All right. So this is the kind of scares I like footsteps in the hallway doorknobs turning hiding under the bed while something's looking for you the whole idea of basements. That dumb waiter seen Hoogly. Give me the kind of production design and technical skill that this brings we'll talk about those long tracking shots in episodes six which if they're just there to be showy and directory there pointless, but what that whole episode is doing is the first time we see all the characters together is trying to connect them to their past to each other. So there's a Rian it's there, and it's actually really done pretty well. So I went into this thing with my eyes wide open literally full light of day at my work desk with sun glaring in on the screen and just having researched every episode beforehand having gone to Wikipedia having read the reams of vulture articles vulture was all over this thing about here are all the hidden ghosts that you may have missed that one is really worth checking out ABS, but if I have a beef with his show to that because that's not fair. That's dirty pool. They know that win something scary is about to happen. Or is happening. I'm looking at the far left bottom corner of the screen, and there's a face stared back of me, that's not cool. Don't J crew shopping cart. Is that just something to give me like a feeling of that there's leopard in a cart guy? It's going to be okay. All that's because they've been talking enough. I will say that. I enjoyed the journey a lot more than the destination that last episode was kind of a lot of disappointing word. All right. So those are Glenn thoughts. Now, I need some berry thoughts as I always do. You have read the novel. I am a huge Shirley Jackson fan huge. And she is someone that I have admired for a long time..

"hill house" Discussed on The Watch

"It's based on surely Jackson doll, it's directed and largely written by this guy. Mike Flanagan who's to me one of the most exciting harder. Actors out there directed hush, androids game any space like a Netflix native son, like hush Gerald's game. He started out a little bit more in the blunt house school. We're done this movie. He did. He done hush. I don't know when the order of when he shot it, but I think hush was released before we too, and we do to was blown houses just like we have this IP like Paramount's gonna. Let us make another one. What could you do? What would you want to do with this budget? And he made this movie with Elizabeth Reeser. That is like kind of like a seventies Polanski movie diploma movie that has like some weedy, you know, stuff attached to it. And if you look at the, I'm Debbie, it's very clear that actors like working with him like Elizabeth Ries or is in hill house. So is Kate Siegel who I believe Gina, who on Monday show has been in Gerald great game, and now she's in and now she's in hill house of people show up. Henry Thomas was in ouija to he's in hill house. So, yeah, like repeat performances from people, and he makes this show. Is essentially a family drama. It's a, it's about trauma and trauma is reflected or represented through horror, but the horror aspect of it. I think it's not sexy secondary or separate from the family drama, but it is deeply intertwined with pretty recognizable problems that all families have. Yeah. And it's interesting to me because horror is not John RA that is given rise to a lot of serialized multiseason television like, obviously, twilight zone. There's been horror TV, it's just a difficult thing to turn into a multi season thing, and it's weird because on the one hand, all the best horror is rooted in character and serialized TV is such a great opportunity to just give you tons and tons and tons of backstory in. That's part of what he'll house does. So. Well, on the other hand, it's really hard to ask people to be terrified for ten hours. I mean, like intensity is the sort of core of that of that. John Reid is building up to these moments in to ask people to go through that every week or every. Our, depending on when you're watching. These upsets one of one of the things I actually really liked about how he'll house handles that is, you know, right away that at least in terms of like the very base like who gets out of this alive question, you get the answer to that really quick because there's there's flash. It's told to basically onto timelines. It's told his family, the crane family, and they're told basically from their childhood, these siblings who are living in this house into England that their parents are trying to restore and flip. I don't know flipping around because it's supposed to be taking place in the early eighties or they specifically mentioned ninety two at some point. But yeah, it sounds like you know, with every haunted house or you need to like, why are they sticking around? Yeah, right. They spend all their money on the stripe. They're underwater on this house essentially, and they have to fix it up. But while they're there, obviously things things go boom in the night. So there's the childhoods aspect. And then there's these kids when they become adults, and it's played by Michalis Mun and Elizabeth Reeser and a couple of other folks, and it's four siblings, Nell in Luke kuechly twins, and surely. Stephen who wants five and then a re, should we spoil the, I guess it's like in the.
