The princeton played john maclean. He plead he played. I believe that was the character name but it was the same author.

"jack ryan" Discussed on Fortress On A Hill (FOH) Podcast

"If you can rebrand yourself to them you've got most of the political spectrum so now and like you say you has historically been the left or at least radicals who certainly wouldn't consider themselves right right wing who have opposed the FBI and the CIA in their general intelligence apparatus of the United States and so getting them on board. What is a historic moment? And like you say absolutely this is some kind of strategy. They're playing in the moment of trump because we saw this as well with Black Panther right as as far as I know the CIA weren't actually involved in making answer but they did jump on board promoting it or tweeting about it during the Oscars. There's this ludicrous. Article on on their website. Comparing the Black Panther technology to the CIA technology all kinds of stuff it was like some sort of CO branding exercise raw other than that. They helped for committee. But when you watch. The movie has similar things. The Second Season of Jack Ryan in the rebrand as role in Africa as some kind of again it in positive thing like they're the ones supporting the war condon's they're the one supporting the good guys. That certainly isn't this race real role all in terms of colonialism in especially West Africa everywhere on the African continent to be honest the CIA has kind of messed things. Up perhaps even worse than they have in Latin America or the Middle East to be honest so that film also contributed to this rehabilitation of the CIA image and did so in a film that is much more likely to be seen by Liberals left-wingers than people would go and see Michael Bay film so I definitely think this is something the CIA like and are trying trying to encourage where they can. I'm not sure exactly how much influence they had on either of those project products but is certainly something that's on their PR agenda. Because like I say if they can get most of the political spectrum sewn up they don't have to worry about anyone ever introducing the idea ever again that no matter how bad the CIA gets can't abolish them for a while. That people were saying that both in one thousand nine hundred ninety s after the Cold War people were suggesting dewey rating ucla anymore and in the early two thousands and tens. You actually got some deepal. Even relatively mainstream commentators suggesting you know. Has This gone too far. We need to like Kennedy said. Do something break up. The CIA turned into a less powerful awful institution because the drone program the torture program all just seem to be getting completely out of hand so this has come up a few times and like I say if they can get all of those different people across the spectrum on board. They just don't have to worry about that kind of talk anymore. The Superhero Angle gives them a really good way to paper over those nice cities for three letter agencies. It didn't seem at all like the guy. The Guy Martin Freeman played in in Black Panther. He had an edge at all. You know he just. He happened to be at a casino that they went to and then he got hurt and it came back to a kander and he got healed. Because they're special KONIN technology could heal them unlike a CPA healers those fuckers suck. But but it's this it's this very light new AH AH call a nuance. But it's just it's it seems like such an easy thing for them like you said Tom Tom after the fact that come into CIA to promote the whole thing like they were involved the whole time but it was really just modern American liberals who still see the CIA as a bastion of good of somehow even even if even if mistakes are made it's still on our side there's still with a quote unquote good guys. Well and I think for a long time the primary way in which the CIA propagandized for themselves through Hollywood at least was that they were a necessary. Evil that the world is this horrible dangerous place full of psychotic terrorists and Khamis and whatever and that's why we need to C. I. A.. And you in fact. Maybe a little bit glad that you don't have to do this. Horrible stuff like an eighteen and torturing people it's you know it takes that responsibility away from you. You don't really have to think about it. You've got mafiose scumbags over there dealing with it for you whereas now they very much are trying to rebrand themselves almost like the dod through probably would very much a force for good in the world. We are a positive thing you you should be celebrating us. I mean that's what Christine Ski was saying in this bloody interview. The first season premiere was that we should be grateful for the CIA and we should be celebrating them Even the most kind of optimistic person couldn't look at the true history of the what the CIA have done and say this is something to be celebrated like I say the very best you could say it's a necessary evil and I certainly wouldn't even make knock argument but Christine Skis. Just gone off the beep and and he's basically being recruited at this point appears spokesman for the fucking agency Jim Halpern now works for the. It's it's kind of said. Yeah I liked it when he was best known for his awkward offscreen glances and love affair with the secretary. Um Can we go back to that Tom just one last thing. That's on my mind. Is that thing I said earlier about. How sometimes fiction both reflex and affects society? And I I. I find that double edged sword of very interesting and one thing that got me thinking about specifically with Tom Clancy and I actually just an email with a three hundred page dissertation to Henry so that he can afford to have your email save. My friends At West Point of very interesting guy. He's still army very bright very different from most knuckle dragging army officers. He's a former intelligence. Got Himself or still intelligence officer. He's a major lieutenant colonel he finished his PhD. And is this rotation is called the good guys win Colon Ronald Reagan fiction and the transformation of national security dirty now I've read it I would say you should. At least read. The abstract was just as long then made you may decide to dig into it a little more. Because it's it's it's up that you're interested in and and what Ben I've also listened to give speeches on C. Span and then also in person about his topic and kiss like really really unique topic and and it ended is this. It's a lot of different fiction. But his main focus the way he started the project was Tom Clancy. And that's why it's relevant to this conversation and he argues after going through the treasure. Trove the Reagan library and all his speeches beaches and stuff. And all the internal memos that Reagan as an actor and has a pretty simplistic thinking good evil guy was highly influenced win specifically by. Tom Clancy red storm rising which was not made into movie. I don't think published in nineteen eighty six which was about a conventional non nuclear war between the Soviets gets a NATO in which made a wins seriously influenced his views on like military power military technology. How we should fund the army how we should focus on like the big three technology of the big five technology of like the Patriot missile? The Apache the Bradley the tank and the Blackhawks The Abrams tank and the Blackhawks. And like if you listen to Google Ben Griffin and you're going to get the station so you'll have his name sent to you. It's profoundly interesting. How a person like Reagan and and there are similarities trump and Reagan's a better guy than trump but there are similarities in there like sort of like worldview? They're sorta like celebrity presidents and all this and it wouldn't surprise me if a guy like trump was affected or by the fiction that he sees you know what I mean. He's already affected by Fox and friends. Right they basically like right his policy memos memo's every morning but it's really an interesting dissertation and it's GonNa come out as a book Like a shorter mainstream book. But it's it shows how red storm rising and and other Tom Clancy novels and then other films really affected Reagan and I'll just one other example. There was a TV movie. You've probably heard of it be called The day after her I wanNA say. Is that what it's called. It was about a thick it was a TV movie back when TV movies were important in the early eighties. I think it was called the day after but I'll look it up and it was about. Yeah Yeah it's it's it's it. It depicts nuclear armageddon and what life would be like in fact it takes place where I live the main character it takes place in Lawrence. Kansas was he in fact was also filmed here They broke the windows of all the storefronts then had to pay them for the damage in order to film it and the idea is like a nuclear bomb hits Kansas City as well as like every other other major city and Lawrence's like just far enough away from Kansas City to have been devastated but they're still survivors and a very gruesome for the time. And I mean the special effects aren't so right now but for the time they're very good and Reagan watches it and he actually said some of the stuff in public but ben was able to go into his records and see what he was saying in private visors and like Reagan. who had campaigned means on the idea that you can fight and win? A nuclear war watches this movie and then like turns on a dime and I'm sure there are the reasons but he's clearly influenced by this movie because with all the time and then he starts saying. WHOA WHOA no one wants a nuclear war? We need to negotiate with Gorbachev and he does that one eighty and it's one of the most I found stories I've ever read. I mean just the idea of this dissertation I. It's it's so you'd the idea that fiction reflects the reality on the ground and the day You know the president and also kind of has the potential especially with the more simplistic minded lack of nuanced characters to affect policy and that is both like the treasure treasure of fiction. What makes it beautiful but also like what can make it dangerous right? I if if it's not done correctly I mean not that there's such thing as correctly but anyway that's just my final point on that Henry will email to you but dude it's such an interesting idea and as you were talking today. Start thinking about Ben and realized like this is right up rally I think based on what the work you do absolutely is no no definitely read. That I mean the clemency. Reagan relationship is fairly widely ugly referenced. I guess in different places but it sounds like he's done a very deep dive and laced all of this together and absolutely I mean yeah. I've got a document from the Prime Minister's office from when Thatcher was In the prime minister in this country and records a phone call between hair and Reagan. The end of the phone call. He's talking to her saying. Oh you gotta read Red Storm Rising. You've really gone this novels really important..

"So I'm I'm terrified. I mean I. I'm scared scared I think Probably the war powers resolution. Because that's that's frightening. They've sold me. This was in. This was in the first ten ten minutes of the very first episode of the season And I I was already ready to throw up in my mouth a little bit. It was just like this is just so disgusting. There's no attempting to parse about what is actually happening in Venezuela that it's not all You know fictional president raises a real will president Medeiros fault that there are specific things on that world stage. That Christine Ski keeps wanting to mention that have allowed this to happen. When no mention of of like America's involvement in that not me like historically also just the fact that you know he mentioned like Oh they have the most oil well and all this and it's like of course American companies WanNa get in? That's why we completed Latin America for ever because of resources and they don't. I also felt really disgusted because this was like it. Just to me it signified. We're making a drastic shifts from season. What I felt like they actually actually attempted to humanize the antagonists in show his story while he was when he was in this guy? We just get very one dimensional bad I quote unquote dislike here in the first ten minutes bond villain. I would slightly disagree in. I always found the antagonists in season in one pretty cartoonish anyway. I know what you mean. At least there was some kind of narrative about them. There was some kind of sense of motivation who these people were or why it it was. They were doing the things they were doing whereas this is just old Nicholas race. He's an evil dictator and he's ruining the country that's the end of it. There's no you know like you say it's not only the lacking all context and realism. It also just isn't particularly well written so one incited and just like headlines Blaring you. The first season had some degree of sophistication in its propaganda. The second season he's in not so much and I did also feel the interesting most interesting line in that whole lecture. He does that is when he goes fortunately for the rest of us. He's up for reelection and it's like no no surely should be fortunately for the Venezuelan people. They've got opportunity to get rid of this guy and vote someone else in and it's good for the rest of the reaction which sets up the whole narrative of season two which is about the CIA interfering in the Venezuelan collection. He's going to you know signposting that from from day one. Oh it's actually a good thing. When the goes into Latin America and starts mets messing in elections and overthrowing governments and so on because you know otherwise we get people like this when of course in reality is because the CIA goes into Latin American? Does this often we get people like grass. I mean that's the historian and the group. I mean it is really perennially disturbing when all context is removed from the current state of affairs and the American government and even most of the American people and then of course media entertainment or just straight up entertainment payment. This show have a tendency to treat every single country and every single international situation As though it occurred in a vacuum no as though his three began in yesterday. I mean if you listen to Jack Ryan right if you listen to his speech there. I mean you could believe that history began yesterday. There's there's no sense of. Why is it this way? Why was the sky originally elected or you know what what role did the play here previously What role did Spanish colonialism play? I mean there's really important stuff. The lack of nuance is probably a and you know more about this time. But like it's almost like when these corporations rations you know produce these movies and shows i. I always like to like imagine that there's like a super like loquacious Dork like me in the room. WHO's like trying to inject nuance Johnson? Like cool like useful interesting stuff into the script and then there's also like an evil guy gavel who's always like no. The American people will not enjoy that they will not enjoy that we epoch-making more simple and like all the cool new stuff gets like sliced the way. That's like my dream like like my imagination. But I mean does any of that exists or do they not even attempt back from the star. I mean I I I fear might be the ladder. I don't know I think in this particular case we're talking about a show runner and a lead writer who are relatively intelligent people begnaud dummies uncreative. And I think the first season is actually a pretty good example of that. It's it's actually one of the best series that I've watched recently believe it or not. I think think this season though. Let's probably two major fact as it played to my mind. The first is Amazon themselves. They realized that the first season. Oh we've got hit Jonah hands so let's dumb it down and make it ever more accessible for a mass audience and so yeah. There are people sat in the room. Saying no no no. We can't do that. We can't include things. He's like nuance all sophistication. It has to be you know plain and simple villain and we won't see overthrown and we see our heroes overthrow him and so any notion of actually creating sophisticated villa. Nora backstory means something in the real world. Even if that was there will have got stripped away in the name. mm-hmm of making the show more popular and therefore more commercially successful and a more valuable asset for Amazon ultimately I guess the other factor is that it's clear from season one that they were setting up season two would take place in Russia at the end of season. One Jim Greer Ryan's boss get posted after Moscow head of station in Moscow and there's a bunch of the little quips and bits in the dialogue where they're talking about Russia and there's even a strange reference to The the Soviet Chen War which never actually happened than ever was a Soviet the Chechen war. So you know they were clearly kind of trailing this sort of neo cold war kind of narrative if season two and somewhere along the line they made this radical switch and said Oh no it's got to be about Venezuela and some kind of coup or revolution in Venezuela and. I imagine that is something that came from their discussions with the CIA. Because as I demonstrated I think quite amply in my video the CIA. Were all over this. They were deeply deeply involved in shaping not just the Jack Ryan in character but the narrative of the arc of season one and season two. And so I'm guessing it came from them when they went to CIA and said Oh well you know. There's every every spy show in film out moment is doing Russia so is there something. Perhaps a little different that you'd suggest to us they said Venezuela and so they had to cobble together. This rather slipshod not particularly well executed story about the involvement in Latin America. which which if you think about it is kind of A? It's a difficult one to do anything with because most people are either completely ignorant of that topic or the ones who know about doubted realize all right this is how we got shade. Is We got Castilla Mass in Guatemala. This is why they over six hundred ways to kill Castro. That's the real history of the the CIA in Latin America and so taking on as a topic for mainstream populist spy show ID think was a bit risky. And I don't think they got it right at all. I think this is not only bad from a real world propaganda perspective. This is also just kind of badly made. It's badly executed badly. Carried out in my opinion. Do you think is interesting. Is there anything to be said about the Ark of the Old Jack Ryan Film Series Right. 'CAUSE WE START WITH HUNT for Red October now. And that's so be right. But then the film sort of try to track relevance you you to me so you know that movie is made like the very tail end of Cold War you know of the Cold War mattering in the second one Patriot Games. It's like well. We need the villain but like the Soviets aren't good villain anymore. 'cause glasnost you know Gorbachev walking down so like what. Are we going to do what we need. Like an anodyne terrorist. But we don't WanNa insult anybody so what we do we pick the IRA but we can't really pick the regular IRA. Because there's a lot of Irish Americans who support them and most of their money and guns come. I'm for America traditionally so we have to make it like an offshoot splinter group but that doesn't really work and there's a there's a total lack of context of why these guys would wanNA really kill British royalty royalty and then in the third one they do go right precisely to where we're going here. I think it's Columbia right or the drug lords. So it's almost like the series. The series is trying to track whatever the relevant thing was because when that comes out of and I don't remember the year you might you know. This is like the height of the Clinton Era General. McCaffrey is the drugs. Are you know Green Berets. Raise all around that America allegedly because we're trying to stop the flow of drugs and you know we haven't gotten a new enemy at nine eleven hasn't happened and it just seems to me like the Jack. Brian Serious does seem to track or attempt to attract sometimes very clumsily. I think in the case of Patriot Games and in the case of this one whatever they deem or the CIA advisers deemed to be like the relevant story of the day onto anything there to certain extent because you got to remember there are not no maybe at least it. Doesn't Jack Cryan novels that Tom Clancy wrote and only four of them got made into films but I think one of the reasons why they picked the ones they did or at least why the ones that they developed actually ended up going into production was partly because they felt. There's some kind of relevance here to some kind of political relevance that will get people into walk this because it feels like a movie. That's about something more than I've met. Whatever the hell making the nineteen ninety s drastic focus? Drastic is great. But you know what I mean. It's a it was. They wanted to offer audiences something a little bit more meaty and so light you say they had to pick the story lines that in some way wove into real world events because because that's also partly the attraction of plants in the first place. Is that his fiction filled in blanks for people or at least they felt it in terms of what's actually going on in the Cold War and in covert operations in Latin America and so on and so yeah yet clear and present danger Was Ninety Four. The sum of all fears is two thousand and a two so right at the beginning of the post nine eleven where war on terror and in that one actually. Interestingly in the original novel the terrorists.

"There's a stump that is the military porn, and there's the stuff that is spy porn, and I've read the greatest of the military porn, but the best of all them, the number one karnal the Kremlin, which is his masterwork and is pure spy cloak and dagger stuff. It's a little slow for you. Okay, you would you remember rich dome rising? There's a lot of seeds in the run into that Jack Ryan Booker karnal Kremlin. He's in it in that he's a character who exists takes place entirely in Moscow and Jack Ryan is a guy back in Washington who's an animal. They never turned that into a movie. No, he's probably to slow. This is much more. It's a really a hard hard core spy, John Lee Carre like dead drops and everything. I mean, I, it's so good. I remember at the time Russia house came out with Sean Connery thinking that I figured they would also cardinal the Kremlin, but can I just interject briefly, yes. As you mentioned locker, I recently read the Karla trilogy and what they're they're all very well written and in I think the the honorable schoolboy is that was that. Is probably the best of them in could make actually a pretty decent like two and a half hour movie in a way that the other two I don't think could even though it's the longest just pare down a bit. But the the problem with the, the problem with all of these books is that they, they, they revolve entirely around spies trying to get other spies for no other reason than they're trying to get the spies, right. They're like, they're all about trying to get assets without any actual. Plot or not. I mean, not plot, but like any scheme. There's they're not trying to defuse. There's no bomb to defuse the just just like we need to get this guy. And that's the case of all of them were just these Carlos Trillo is that's that's the those three books in it's, it's like, I found it vaguely frustrating like. Love like, okay, I know it's heresy among people who love spice stuff. Karnal Kremlin is, is the story of the highest placed US by in the who is actually like on the politburo and he's on the verge of being compromised. Finally, and this CIA drift by Bob Ritter who is the Henry Cerny character who's the bad guy when, but but of course, in the books, he's not a bad guy. He's he's a very honorable ops guy, and he decided that they're gonna pull him out. They don't need to pull him out. There's an, there's another side of the CIA agents like, hey, look, we, we've done what we could for this guy. You know, this is what happens. And Ritter says, no, we gotta. We gotta get him out. So it's the story of how they tried to extract their their biggest asset. Tasked question. You mentioned the third category of Tom Clancy books. What was it called? You had just trash. Okay. Like like, what? Like rainbow six. All the rainbow six executive orders. Executive orders is basically Jack Ryan in the. Balanced. I'm sorry, becomes president. Is this the one where the ones based on the video game aren't very good. Is that what you're telling me is that the video games based on them, but nibble once he becomes president, the books are on ranch style full of speechifying about it is as if our friends at media matters were writing a parody of what conservatives doing fiction when right, right, right, right. And Jack Ryan said, well, we have this amendment. It's right there in the constitution and the number two whole, perhaps you've heard of it because we have to be able to protect. It is. Why do you hate guns bad? Are you saying it's really in, but here's the one final thing there's only because then great. This is perfect. He almost certainly would have been Trumpian. Clancey despite the fact that the Trump ISM stuff is all totally countered his actual ideological beliefs. Foreign policy was foreign policy wise, tax wise size of government. Live wise Senator that I don't wanna get what I mean say though that for guy who was very, very conservative was Trumpian..

"Today. Show ain't over yet. Folks. It's time for roll call before we get into roll call. I just wanted to say team that I saw a headline today that goes in the pantheon of. Wow, headlines quarantined vanilla ice offers to solve Eminem machine gun Kelly feud. That this this really happened folks apparently vanilla ice who is somebody forever associate with my childhood because I- I- spe we all we are. You are seeing with me. I don't care where you are across the country. And now you're singing with me, dude. You do you know, he he ended up getting sued by David Bowie's, whoever owned, I guess, it was Bowie himself or whoever owned the rights to that song and under pressure. Under pressure. And he he lost all the money that he had left from the vanilla ice song. But just be honest, folks. And Brandon, I know it's true of you when I say stop collaborate, and listen, you know, exactly what I'm talking about. Okay. So he he made a a Mark on on culture for better for worse. But he was in. He was in a plane coming back from Dubai, and he said he tweeted out this is from vanilla ISIS official account. Stuck on the runway with like a thousand police ambulances firetrucks? This is crazy. And then he also offered well, this is because there apparently a hundred people sick on the bottom floor so happy I'm up top. It's a double decker plane. This is crazy. And I don't know when he got into the machine gun Kelly thing. Oh, yes. He he did weigh in on that. He says these to have a problem, yo l solve it. And it was machine and Kellyanne Eminem. I don't know anything about I didn't know rap. Brandon rap feud still a thing. I this is the first one I've heard about a long time because Eminem just dropped as the kids say a new album. So that's why and also if I may go ninja ninja go. That was my favorite Manila. I song. I mean from teenage details to choose, of course suit. See this is this is our childhood coming back to visit upon us now with the no ice. He's also a DIY TV show host now. So just just ruined. That folks a man of many talents stop collaborate and listen ISIS back with the brand new. Okay. I'll stop all right. Facebook dot com slash Buck Sexton. If you want some action in the roll call and by the way, I've decided that until we get our new Email up and running we're just doing Facebook from now on I can't keep logging in logging out of I forget the password, then I get angry. I I've blown whole afternoons is trying to figure out my password something, and then got to do the all the, you know, the hoop do in the loop de loop and running around. Okay. Here we go James writes one thing I'm not seeing a lot of these days is white cats. And I mean that literally I see a lot of black cats here in Norfolk Virginia, maybe a few gray ones Brown ones here. And there I am suspecting. The worst antifa is involved in killing the white cats gut feeling. James? Brandon. Do you have anything to add to that? I'm. I I don't know about the white cat. Dearth? I don't know anything about this cat guy. My girlfriend has a cat. So. Yes. So your your your then by transit of property of cats, a cat guy. Yes. All right. Do you have a white cat? She has no it's not white. It's kind of like a brownish Khan Academy. But yeah, I I don't think that's the case that white cats are being exterminated. Oh, I don't think so either. But I will say that white cats are for bond villains. So I'm glad we I'm glad you clarified that Michael up next year high buck. I just watched the first episode of Jack Ryan on Amazon and have a question do all analysts get extracted from birthday parties by coast guard helicopters shields, high from the People's Republic of Connecticut, by the way, doesn't Senator Blumenthal resemble the stereotypical s s major who's always threatening to report to the general staff. If politics don't work for him. There's always a job in Hollywood's. On the Jack Ryan thing. I I haven't seen it yet. But I will tell you that I did watch recently the hunt for Red October A for the I don't know how many if time the millionth time. I watched the hunt for Red October. It's so good. And I got to say that I I really enjoyed that little trip down memory lane. But when they when they pull him out of. Whatever he's essentially, academia, they pull that Jack Ryan out of academia, haven't doing all this really cool stuff. I remember thinking this didn't happen to me when I was in the CIA. It's not really it's not really how it goes. There's some interesting stuff. I don't know. I thought about this guys. I didn't I never wrote a book about my time the CI because I didn't want to be one of those guys who who was forced to try to. I see this with a lot of. I'm just going to tell you with a lot of the I was in the CIA. Here's my books, you get one the high level guys meeting the guys who ran the place, and they're not, particularly, you know, they're not particularly interesting because it's going to be very very sanitized. And then on the other end of it. You have guys who didn't do very much, and they feel the need. I read one memoir. And this was an official cleared memoir of somebody who had been in the CIA, and he starts talking about a bar fight. He was in kind of like. This is not really I don't need to hear about. I don't really need to read about this. It's not so and I felt that there. So people tend to. I can only do it. If I could write it with a bit of sarcasm and a little bit of of dark humor. But I would also say that that I've thought about just clearing a bunch of things. So I could tell you guys some some real CIA stories because I did do some I got do some pretty cool stuff. And it's been long enough now that as long as I checked out with the pop the proper authorities, and they signed off on it. There would be no I mean, it's none of this stuff that I would tell you would be would be sensitive, and so, but I'd have to go check with Langley. I'm thinking about it. Now. The Jack Ryan show is out. I will give it some thought. Okay. Now, we got Taylor who writes, the Buck Sexton show podcast, boo. More time to hang with buck. We'll Taylor more time to hang with Taylor. So I appreciate that you enjoy that show. And like I said we're going to start releasing a daily Buck Sexton show podcast earlier in the day, hopefully up most days before twelve eastern that'll be just your rundown of what's going on in the news cycle. So you can really kind of get it early. And I'm hoping that everybody will get a chance to listen to on that. And then later you can join me for the whole three hour broadcast of the Buck Sexton show on radio or any parts of it that you have time to join for. That's that's the way we're going to structure it basically, I don't like waiting until later on in the day to have any connectivity with team block. I I wanna talk to you guys earlier. And then later on we could spend the full three hours diving into things. So that's that's the approach. We'll give it a shop. We'll see how it goes. I think I think once we get into a rhythm with it. It'll be it'll be great, Josh. Right. Hey, buck. I heard you filling in for L. Rushbo about two years ago. And and listen to a lot of your podcasts ever since you offering an inch. You offer interesting perspective, I can't find anywhere else. Well, thank you very much. Joshua, very kind of you to say, and yeah, it's it's an honor and a privilege to have held the Mike for elrushbo at various times in my past. And I really liked that I've brought over so many people who are who are elrushbo listeners have also become part of team buck. So that's a great. Well, it's going say great testament to the excellent taste of El Rushbo, Saudi audience. So there you have it Jason writes, the Pensacola Star Tribune is better known as the Pensacola news journal. Yeah. Jason, I know I'm sorry. I didn't know the name of the local paper. I got I got that one. And I said, I got it wrong or whatever it's called the Pensacola news journal. The greatest name for a paper. I've ever heard that doesn't really I don't know. It doesn't really tell me much. I really big fan. But thank you Jason for clarifying that one Kyle rights book. I was never Trumper for a long time, and he's still grates on my sensibilities. But when I hear clips of code pink fan, she cries from the Senate chamber, how I have to think to myself, this is why you vote for Trump and twenty twenty you know, Kyle. I think that's I think that's a very apt, my friend. I think that's totally fair. I I'm sure you're not alone in that. By the way, I think a lot of folks feel that way about all of this. They feel like you know, what? Now, this is just the left just needs to not be crazy. And they can't do it. They can't do it if they could just manage to sound more sane, then I think we'd have much bigger trouble on our hands. And we do so. Yeah. And rights book. Why so silent on the current crisis in the Catholic church? You haven't mentioned it at all that I can tell and I haven't been silent on it. We had Matt Walsh on recently talk about it. And Matt Walsh is one of the most vocal Catholic and Jews. I don't know how to said both barrels critics of the whole situation in terms of the way to hire. I mean, look everyone's everyone is has has rage about what was done to these victims. But I'm talking about being a critic of the hierarchy of the pope himself. So it's not fair to say, we haven't covered it and in terms of not covering it enough. You know? I I I wonder I guess, you know, every time every day, I'm on the show. And I try to think what can I do? That's adding to other the knowledge or insider com, just the conversation that folks are going to have when the show is done and on the Catholic church scandal. There's just a part of a, yeah, it's it's terrible. And as a Catholic is deeply unsettling, and I want there to be a fury unleashed within the Catholic hierarchy to just clear out. Not just all of this behavior, of course, which in many cases, we're talking not vile criminal behavior, or even then you add to that just the unethical behavior. I mean, it's it's it's unacceptable for priests to be sleeping with the priests in their early twenties as well. Right. I mean, there's there's a lot of things that that have come out or as a result of the recent revelations..

"Tara loves to watch king a queens at night. And like the same thing with that show is like is not that far in the past, but they just really have some problems when they introduced, you know, Gay Mitchell into the show and and it was a little it was cringe worthy. The part that actually bug me the most about this episode just like little moments was the moment in the gym allure ally and Rory are like just sort of pick up two guys to get massages and the gym, such a weird moment and like I don't know what they were supposed to be like, are they like to sex idiots that hang around the gym and like local massage you for Ted, but will. Goes just such a weird moment and it just seem very, like I don't like, I guess these characters. I mean everybody's entitled to selfishness once while, but it just seems so out of place. And so like suddenly there it kind of took me back and it really was like a a a moment that made me hate both characters a lot like it was. It was bad, but like for the no neck. To be like so bad that it becomes no neck. Were they like, is this like that big of an outlier from for this show? Like I understand there's this whole craters leaving, you know, everybody hates the show now stuff. If you didn't tell me that I would've liked this episode but didn't think it was like an especially egregious they they were still here at this point, no, sorry to interrupt, but they want one less state thought that was okay still there. Okay. So this is this is the season before they left? Right. Well, then there's no excuse guys. This episode didn't make me like anybody, and I know like Gomer girl's passed up, assaults like yellow, they're corgi. They're fun, the allies goofy in, you know, like I, I wouldn't want to hang out with her in real life because one hundred, ten percents sugar sometimes, but like it's still fun to watch. But this episode wasn't that like everybody seemed to be a a dick in their own particular way. And while that is annoying and makes an uninterruptible episode like for me like a no Nak has to be so far off the path. You know, I always kinda like the mentioned. I know nag which was black market from battle star galactica where really seemed like they were doing a different show for an episode and nobody had access to the show bible. This sort of seemed like just like an off performance and some bad decisions, but not like a total trainwreck. All right. Analii. Why definitely agree with what everyone said so far. And I do think though that Cory had a. Good point in that Dan palladino did right, Andrew. This episode put you to a different standard..

"Very quickly. I haven't really done anything on around the dial in a while and feeling kind of bad about it. So I actually just went to Netflix and clicked on the first thing that they're presenting this morning. I woke up really early and couldn't get back to sleep. So speaking about Sarah was talking earlier about the show shock clock, basically, how long can you last through a terrible show? I'm here to report. I lasted seven and a half minutes through paradise PD. Animated show from Netflix new, nothing about going into. Basically it's like if you like family guy, but you wish there was more swearing. This is basically that show the laughs are not to be found. It is extremely bad. The first three minutes of the show involve a flashback where the son of the police chief who is one of the main characters shoots off his balls in bed. Boys having sex with his wife because he's done and kind of just goes from there. There's also a talking dog just like family guy who was like one of the police officers, it's like pretty shameless and like idol. I mean, I guess, hey, you'll like family guy more power to ya. I think as a terrible show in this show is like even like a an echo, family guy. So like to put that perspective, I believe it's the same creative team as Brickell berry. That makes sense. Yeah. Yeah, a lot of sexual harassment, jokes and all that sort of stuff. So you know, you know, quickly for my plug. If your finding yourself in Austin, this coming Saturday night with free time on.

"Wherever find podcasts are heard, and also mine. Emily. So for me as been previously discussed, it takes me a very long time to watch any show. If I love it, I try and Brel ish and make it stretch as long as possible. So I have been watching halt and catch fire for the first time. I the show love the show so much. I saw the pilot at south by south west premiered itself by south west. The year before until six years ago, five years ago and didn't really think it was necessarily for me for anyone that doesn't know about computers in starting in Dallas, Texas in the nineteen eighties doesn't sound that intriguing or that exciting saw the pilot, and it's really four main characters that you're dealing with, and I just didn't really connect to any of them wasn't my jam, but then people kept talking about this show and our office, all of our office staff here at the festival. LA fell in love with it wouldn't stop talking about it kept going on and on until finally was like, okay, well, I think you watched it. I right. I did Jin made a very strong plea for me to episode six specifically. And if I didn't like it by episode six, I could give up. But if I liked it by then I could keep going. I fell hard and deep for them specifically the ladies. Freely what it is. Pretty much. I watch a couple of a week every few days I sit down and just completely tune watched the episode and sees them. One is great. All the characters are incredibly interesting, and they all have moments that you fall in love with them in the moments that you want to wring their necks. Once you get to season two, and it really focuses on the two women Davis and carry a shea, the actresses and their partnership. I think part of it maybe as being half of a female partnership, you understand a lot of things as women, no, not at all about what these women are going through and really trying to start something different. And the way they communicate. One of us may be a lot like one one of us maybe not gonna say which ones. How you look at these four characters and how they each partner up in different ways. I don't think I've seen a show that has that incredible on someone really. I mean, even including John BAAs worth the character with that, like their relationships together are so just fascinating and they're so deep. And then you also we where we are with computers and where we are the internet right now, knowing where this is going and knowing what's going to even know what's going to happen before they do, but you don't know how they're gonna handle it..

"Re linking all of the podcast posts and the visual aids. So you can all along if episode I had a lot of very strong opinions about desserts, which. So check it out. All right onto Caitlyn, what do you have? Well, this took me a little bit, but so I spent the entire Labor Day weekend in my house cleaning and watching television like a good TV fan and made me think when you were saying that you should alternate the purge and an with an e. I kind of did that with Ozark and pose. Pose. And so needed some lightning up from time to time. And so I'd watch a couple of episodes of pose which I could talk about both of them obviously poses been out for a little bit. It is a beautiful, loving, gorgeous, Ryan Murphy show. Sometimes they shows or not gorgeous, and they do lots of weird things, and there's something really beautiful about the show and I could talk about it a lot. But the reason Ozark is the one I'm going to talk about is I did not love season one. I didn't think there was anything wrong with it, but it almost kind of ties into the Jack Ryan thing when it came out, I watched all of it. I am a binge unlike Emily, and I watched all of it and was like, I love a dark Jason Bateman. I like it when he goes goes deep, but it felt like it wasn't really any different than anything else that we have been seeing in terms of that world of drug money laundering and terrible anti heroes villains like they were just. Always in trouble and always upping the stakes for some terrible thing that they had to do. So I watched all of those season one, but I just didn't really care the way some of the rest of the world seemed to care about. But of course it showed up on my net flicks on Friday, August thirty first. And I had a whole Labor Day weekend in front of me and there. So I watched all of it and I literally can't tell you if it's just building on season one. And so I'm invested somehow tricked or if it's actually a good and better with Ozark. I think the thing that it was really interesting about season one. Two of the only things that I really liked about season one where Julia, Garner's character she played Ruth Langmore who's from a trailer park and sort of all of life has been against her or for her to sort of end up the way of criminal and wind. Jason Bateman comes to town. She kinda sees him as being an answer to. I don't know. About prayers, but in terms of showing her way out and wait as sort of build things on her own and her decision making process is just really interesting in the show, and she's just extremely interesting looking and sort of fascinating to watch. And the other person that I really liked NC's one was an actor by the name of Markman Chaka who I wasn't familiar with. He plays wrestling Moore who ends up his Ruth's uncle and ends up in a romantic relationship with the FBI agent that's investigating sort of everyone. But it was just a a really fascinating relationship. That was one of the only things in season one that I felt I hadn't seen before. And so season to the thing that I think was really interesting the way they use the two of them, but also the way they build out Laura Linney character. I think these one sort of starts with a marriage on the rocks and so Jason Bateman it's not really spending a lot of time with. Her and their their marriage is just not all that interesting. He's doing a lot of things on his own in sort of hiding them from the family. And in season two, they really kind of doubled down together and become. I don't know if they're exactly crime bosses yet, but there's it's sort of setting up a really big thing for season three, but that she gets to be a lot more interesting. And there's there's another female character from the drug cartel from the Mexican drug cartel. That's a lawyer. Those characters really got brought out in season two. And so I did it..

"Exempt series. Seven is just like it's actually fun to watch is like generally fun and and and kinda goofy. But very violent at the same time. And that's what the purge should've been and as not and kind of the purge makes you feel a little dirty after you watch it. Like, you know, like there's no nothing to soothe you about it? Yes, series. Seven is much more satiric. I just looked it up in. It's not streaming anywhere at all. Really unimaginable. Yeah, it's not even like on. I tunes so seek by the DVD. I promise me, I promise you, it's worth it. I'd also recommend along the same lines as the purge the belco experiment, which is currently on HBO go. And it's also a film with Tony Goldwyn, John Gallagher, junior from the newsroom others, and it's a similar thing where people are trapped in this building, and they're told by an unseen boys that they have to kill each other at certain intervals or else they will start getting killed. And I just watched it last week and it's it's it's much smarter. It's more along the series of in lines also just to backtrack for one second digest Ryan, because I forgot to say this when we were talking about. It storyline with the drone pilot never came up in our discussion perhaps because some of the people didn't get far enough for it. It's really dumb. It's like, that's for sure. The worst thing about the first season of Jack Ryan, it's like handled in this awful stupid ham handed way of this, like grief-stricken, remorseful, drone pilot guy. If you're interested in that story done well, I in the sky is also it's streaming. I, I looked it up while we were watching the show. It's on stars. It's a feature film with Aaron. Paul from breaking bad. It's an Helen Mirren. It's great. It's a basically in real time I want to say right, Dave, pretty much. It's really good. The purge is fine. I mean, we watched the first two as I said, I don't know if I would continue watching it. No, definitely skip. The other problem with the purge is like they have that diverse cast, but everybody's is out of central casting. There's no imagination in the characters that are happening in the show, and and there's nobody really wanna root for like the guy or his sister in the cult. Like while that sister just let her go do. That's like, that's like. And the colts going to end up being for profit entity. I'm sure we enter the story line there, but it was just like, dislike such a great stupid concept for a piece of entertainment disorder. Squandered it being too serious too much. Oh, you know to everything, you can also imagine a Ryan Murphy taking this concept in doing something like really perverse in weird with it versus this, which is just like it's very average. And then occasionally someone gets hacked up with an axe offscreen anyway. At the opposite end of the spectrum. I also watched all of an with an e. Which is Annette flex. If I may tar next time you have something like this, you should do. You should alternate episodes. Occurred cleanse your pallet with with the and the knee, and they get back to the the pilot, sir. Yeah, that's under percents something that I would do absolately that's something that I would do. It wouldn't. It wouldn't quite balance out because there's ten in with an ease and we only got three the purges. But anyway, this season to the end of green Gables adaptations on net flicks. I think it's coming to CBC in Canada later this year I, it's, it's still good. It's very sweet. I imagine if there was a tween in my life, I would enjoy watching it with him or more likely her. But the I also appreciate in theory the way that they have tried to expand upon the world of the book by bringing in like making it not so bound by its actual time. So we have like a major non white character. This season Gilbert goes to work on a ship, and he meets this Trinidadian fellow coal Stoker, and spend some time with him in Trinidad and brings back to Avellino then they can get into prejudice and stuff..

"Okay. I mean, it's it's, I won't say it's an anthology show, but it's sort of immune, you know what the premise of the purges. And so this is sort of like it's it follows, I guess three and a half storylines Dave. Would you say? Sure. So there's one where there's a guy who's just come back from being deployed and he's trying to find his sister and their parents were killed in the first purge, and she has fallen in this is the half a storyline. She's fallen in with like this cult where they drive around in a bus on purge night and volunteer to get purged. And so he's trying to find her before she gets killed. Basically. Then there's a woman who works in finance and we find out, I believe in the first episode that she is has essentially bought a hit person to go and kill someone. And it seems like we know who probably is, but I feel like there might still be a twist that reveals. It's not who it seems like it's going to be. And in her story line is William Baldwin. That's about right. He's the biggest name on the show, for sure. It's a whole bunch of nobodies that I've never seen before the woman who's who's. Like a big man on campus. Yeah. She also played the mayor in the first season of the leftovers. I, I don't know the actress name but her. And then in the third story line, there's these a couple is going to a purge party that's run by the new founding fathers of America who are basically the GOP plus who have created the purge. And so there you know, gross, an awful and this couple is like, feels weird about it, but they're going to try and kiss up to the host of the parties played by the ageless re diamond. He's the second most famous person on the show. He's like some big state mucketty MAC in this new creepy party, and their backstory is that they had a threesome with the guy's daughter and everyone is weird about it. And also the guy in the couple looks really a lot like Jared, Kushner. So this is the least subtle of the storylines by far. It's fine. I mean, I'm not a huge person other than American horror story. I don't super love horror TV shows, and I know there's been a proliferation of them since Walking Dead, but I find them like kind of unsatisfying, Dave, what did you think of it? I think that the TV show the purge and all the purge movies in general are like lesser versions of series. Seven. Yeah. I don't know how many people have seen series seven, but it is like a really great take on sort of the distortion man, hunt genre. If it can be called genre, there is comedic elements. It is sort of absurdist in series seven, but the purse takes self. So seriously, even though his premise is so stupid. Yeah, and the stuff that happens in the purchase o- stupid. Like I think it's the first episode. There's certainly a game show within the purge that happens like, yeah, it is done presented. So mirthless -ly that is just like such a missed opportunity. Now, if they kind of took the TV. Show as an opportunity to turn the purge more into something like series seven, that would have been great because actually soon, seven is extremely watchable in Syria. Seven is a little more like the purge me survivor like is actually more of a a formatted game show in the universe which makes it more fun. What is serious? Seven series. Seven is a movie and it stars of turn west Bentley in. Yep, not west Bentley. The other guy, the guy that looks exactly like him who have to look it up Glenn FitzGerald from Fennelly disaster, and Brooke Smith from silence of the lambs are the are the leads and Merritt Weaver is in it as a teeny, tiny little child love her, and it's sort of the same idea. There's like this national lottery and then like people who are picked, have to go into the survival game. So it's got very similar elements..

"Caitlyn McFarland Emily Gibson from the ATS television festival. Hello. Welcome. We are here today to talk about Jack Ryan. We're starting to get into the period where there's just a shit ton of premieres coming. And you chose this from a list of several different options Caitlyn. Why don't we start with you? What was it about Jack Ryan that that you wanted to that made you intrigued about it enough to have it be our lead topic because you're both ex marines. How did you know Alexa tell you that Dave. It's one hundred percent Carlton qs. These come to the festival a couple of times and we just find him very interesting and sort of the way that he works with writers and the different shows that he picked. So we were kind of curious what he would do with such a long standing franchise. Okay. And how do you think he did? We'll throw this to Emily. What were your? What are your high level opinions of Jack Ryan? High level is I would say it is a solid spy thriller. It's not really my generous. I can't say I have a lot to compare it to, and I realized that I haven't seen clear and present danger and at least twenty years those trying to go back to remember what that was like versus what this is like. But I mean at the end of the day, I love John Krimsky and I love watching them onscreen. I don't know if this is the most charming that I've ever seen him, but it was a solid performance. Okay. Thank you because that was one of my big questions about this, which is what makes. John Krasinski wanna do this show at this point in his career, even if you grant that this was probably underdevelopment pre a quiet place coming out like now, he's a director. The seems like kind of step back in terms of the progress of his career versus what he wants to doing before Sephora quiet place. Like, you know, the leather heads franchise didn't take off. Well, he wasn't that Benghazi exactly. I demand like. I, I mean, Phil, like he was still around and yes, it's true that in terms of feature films, like thirteen hours is closer to Jack Ryan than quiet places in terms of politics, but like it seems, I don't know that his audience -sarily wants to see him being this guy versus doing another sitcom if he was going to be doing a t. I don't know. It's so true though, because I know you really want him to be Jim helper at me to help with all my being. But you want people to be able to do something different, play different roles and try new things. I don't know if I believe him as a CIA agent, but officer officer. He's an analyst. Yeah, and and also one who's like he starts out as a nerd and they have to they layer in this back story of, well, he was also deployed. He was a marine, so he also knows tactical stuff, whatever fine. But then it's like, okay, he was like working a desk two weeks ago and now he knows everything about everything like he's -tective gory of the CIA. Totally air. What did you think? I do not care for Kristen ski generally. So I liked him in this and I didn't need him to be sort of like goofy floppy-haired sitcom guy because I didn't like that guy with that said, I am always happier when you're just talking about the money, like follow the money. But like there's enough of that there's enough of lake code cracking and trade craft. And then at the end of every episode, there is an unbelievable expenditure of ordinance that like everybody within eight city blocks should have been killed, not just a handful of people. And then another episode starts in your back at the office doing not the office, but. That's very different show and I'm not..

"It's fine. But one they really liked is they made Jim Greer, his boss a Muslim is that the black So show. shutouts all the wire, the wire people, you put him in your good to go the TV show, just hiring at least three people from the wire because you instantly get there and the it. It's say that you're good to go to like homeland. Does it to where you have kids kids kind of boring where you just have so much like Muslims are evil. We're good people and it's good because it was like, see where they're coming from up their kids. It's right, right. And it's like, and all the muzzle in this one window pierces the Muslim and is currently there. Couple of are just like, you'll not all that evil. Terrorists are bad. Muslims are good, right. Tell the whole story, but without the fucking shots at the Mets, what the fuck was that about? It was just like, so I was waiting to be seen Jacob degrom. He's not getting any runs up more than my right, like, fuck you, man. I actually, I saw an article today that was kind of it was questioning whether or not a hero. Jack Ryan can exist nowadays because first of all, he. He is Jim's a little too ripped to be Jack, Jack, is in every man. Jack is Jack, is me Jesolo paunchy Jackson little kind of. Yeah. Yeah. Sell yourself. But I think I think he was describing in books as you six one on assuming and like now he's getting picked up from all the movies in the past have had him like doing particularly the most recent one with Chris pine where like he's a superhero? Uh-huh. And the show goes back to the roots where he's not really anymore six pack, but it's not that he's like. Doesn't like using guns all that shit, and it's kinda gives you the movie. Bigger faster, stronger. They, they show the comparisons of GI Joe's in history and like GI Joes used to start off as like these little normal looking people because now rafted for nearly seventeen years old now known as the toy, the toll right every GI Joe now looks like Bain got veins popping everywhere because that's what we want. Jack Ryan is not that bureau. So it'll be interesting receptive the I've already seen half the reception is this is a white male privilege at it's finest..

And then I have signed a letter of agreement contract in which I have accepted that responsibility. It's my scream duck. I don't think that he. How are you watching? Are you watching when the Stephen King one Castle Rock known? I have any Simpson. Yeah, it's it's still watching base videos, but I should. I watch it? Is it good? It sounded middling Castle. Rock Castle Rock. I'm enjoying the experience of watching it. It's no sharp, Jack Ryan where I'm watching Jack Ryan, but it's isn't that good, but it's good. It's good. It's okay. It's not it's no patriot, but it's it's fun. I think you like Castle Rock. I think you should watch it. I have not for that. Have you seen Ozark it that I recommend Ozark you? I've watched some Ozark and use to is out now and it's it's, it seems really good also. My TV. Oh, you know, I'm watching the defenders as my sort of late night kind of cool should be going to bed and haven't gone to bed yet. Seen all the other shows are kind of just watch that. I have seen. Both seasons of Jessica Jones. I've seen one and a half seasons of Luke cage and I couldn't get into daredevil. Maybe I'll revisit now. I didn't get into season one of daredevil. I don't know why. I'll give it another try, but they're the defenders is great. I'm really enjoying it. And the answer is you don't need to see. I mean, I know the characters. I just haven't. Jump jump and the other one was Castlerock Castlerock. I mean, I'm putting Castlerock over defenders for shore moving it up and Ozark is fantastic. If you liked breaking bad at all, Ozark is going to be right in your wheelhouse. That's what's his name in it. Right. Yeah, it's God, Jason Bateman, Jason Bateman, cool and low. There's other things I watched a movie called lock l. o. c. k. e. Tom hardy. Have you seen? It looks to me. It's really, really good. I was surprised that it's basically a movie in a car. It's him in a car, and he's I and on screen. But what's interesting is like he's having phone calls the whole time and and one of the people that call place his son is Tom Holland, Spiderman, what? Yes. My Spidey and venom in the same movie is allowed to be English. It. Does he even have an English accent? They both doing American accents. No, he's Tom Hardy's Welsh or plays a Welsh character in Welshmen and move..
