"I feel like I've seen your face on my car I'm bus bench even a cute gay guy now what yeah that's me. Christopher is just not thinking let's K. extra I had a lot in a bad way. okay is beautiful I talk to dead to me creator Liz Feldman back when the show premiered take a listen to our conversation. there are many twists and turns along the way so as a writer did you have a beginning and an end and then you filled in the middle or did you always know you had this twisty tourney mystery script that's a good question I think I so enjoy the shows that have twists and turns and I was so eager to make a show like that and I think as soon as we set the show but Netflix I thought here's a great opportunity to have cliffhangers and things you don't see coming in you know in a way to like that is like life things happen in your like if I wrote that nobody would believe. and so I I I really am to make a show that reflected that aspect of life when I get to the end if I watch it again will I see are there any sort of Easter eggs along the way in the beginning or or. okay. so this it's a weird thing and it grief as a place to find comedy I mean I think one of the all time best comic episodes is the very Tyler Moore. cloud server she starts laughing at the funeral at Asner by the way I got in your show I shall I know what a dream so I'm curious about what was it about grief that you wanted to explore and how did you find the balance of funny without going too far you know I was truly exploring my own grief at the time I we had a family member passed away on my fortieth birthday and I was already kind of looking at my own mortality in a new way you know sort of getting into mid life and then my cousin who was not much older than me passed away and it really set me into this pretty dark place but because I'm a comedian I am just weirdly trained to look at everything to find what's weird and funny about it and so that's sort of you know where this comes from is it my own my own grief and also at the time I was going to some fertility struggles and ongoing and you know I it's when things are dark and they're not going the way you want to for me the only thing I can do is laugh is the it's it's it's just how I get through life and so I thought you know I'm not the first certainly to do it but to to to explore grief from a comic perspective just feels like like a coping mechanism you know we could all use so in the show these two women me at a at a grief support group one of whom Jenner's not that she's really is not much time for the sport right which can I know she needs to go and she's played by Christina Applegate who give such great dead pan I have a theory about it yeah I mean what you just said okay I think my theory as well is that because of her age and because people are vintage grew up with her as Kelly Bundy and then Rachel sister on friend yeah and Veronica Corning stow. and Ron family run pretty anchorman yes that we're her age and she's a widow yeah so there's something about seeing her in that position which feels relatable yes I mean I think you know it is it is the sort of unthinkable thing that we all I imagine fear won't even let ourselves here but I actually grew up with an aunt who was a widow and she was with it at thirty six and she was such a major person my lesson to really looked up to and was inspired by and I watched her resilience as she went through that I always wanted to kind of make an ode to her and this is in part that owed you know to to show that you know you can go through an incredible loss like that and and find strength through well in this in this case a new friendship and Jenna so mad that she's going around trying to figure out she looks at cars I have dance in them to see if maybe that's the car that hit my husband Jack for pictures and measures at one point she decides if this yellow corvette that's been speeding through town the cut and she she takes to it with a with a crowbar as a group are as a golf club golf club yes the cop says I got a winner running around town like a white wine vigilante yeah. why is Jay and why do you have for being so angry because that's to me the authentic feeling she would have she's been wronged and I think it's so unusual to see an angry woman portrayed in television and film you know if there's something really scary I think to general audiences about us about an angry woman but she's unrepentant me angry she never says I'm sorry. no she's alive I know I know and and I think that you know for me maybe you know that was an aspect of of my own anger and certainly the other writers anger that we're not really allowed to express on our real lives but if you're a widow you sort of get a hall pass on on your anger and maybe on your behavior and you know another line from the show is that grief does weird things to people and for her it's just almost on leashes who she really is and it's so fun and I think obviously really fun to write but I think like you know it's so fun to watch her do that because it's like she becomes like our avatar you know this person this behavior that we sort of wish we could do and you watch her do it and she kind of does it for us all the other woman who is her friend becomes our friend yet in this so far as I know. this is Judy Linda Cardellini and just sort of you physically the opposite of her she's Loftin brunette and big eyes and and just the whole curves and she we think she's Kelly to like burn sage in a place she does burns agent like take self help seriously and follows the rules what do you think Linda Cardellini brings to that role I mean it's. easy I think warmth you know isn't well I hadn't met Linda before I caster and we met just one time and we sat there and I she's so endearing in real life she's so warm she's such a genuinely kind person and I think that that really comes through which is also in a very talented actress who X. I mean really you you you've never seen her like this you know there are so many layers that she gets to play but in in real life she's just like a lovely person and I think that's really what you see I needed Judy to be really lovable and and when you watch the show you'll see why and because you have to believe this angry woman Jen would let her yeah would would be with I have some be penetrated by this person when Jen is in a place where she really is rejecting all comfort and connection with people but but Judy sort of makes her way in and I think it's just because she's leading from such a place of love and their friendship is really interesting to watch too that is a shout out to Kate Allie yes I like I like I said I I see you there yes you did their lives so what do you think about the evolution of female friendships in television what did you want to do with this one regardless of how sticky it gets I wanted to create a female friendship that for me reflected the power and strength that I've gained from my own female friends I've been extremely lucky in that I have some you know twenty year plus relationships with some incredible women they know who they are and in fact one of them Kellie Hutchinson as a writer on the show so we got to be in that writers room together with this long beautiful friendship and you know that that French of that you see in dead to me is really based on real that's how we really talk to each other and I wanted to create sort of aspirational friendship that you had to root for but you just want to see these two people together that you wish you had a friend like that or maybe it reminds you of that friend that you do have and. when you know we first started shooting it was pretty instantaneous that they have this incredible chemistry and they really really nailed that that friendship that I think you know we we wish we could all have that you've been in the business you got a fabulous resume of your own but I do all this there but the series executive produced by will Ferrell and Adam McKay had you had you worked with them before they meet there for people not make very funny movies very very funny movies they're very funny guys I hadn't expressly worked with them before I mean it's certainly been a fan of both of them I was developing something without him a previous to this that we decided not to go forward with and that when this came along I wanted to share with them honestly specifically because they have a a female producer named Jessica album who is really incredible and she is the head of their glorious Sanchez arm of Gary Sanchez and it's all female you know fronted of material and she's you know I mean they're great but so is she that's so interesting so I felt very I had to be very prepared for this interview because you have your own talk show. that's so funny you're amazing though I mean I like I used to work should be when you're on MTV all things with them thank you I appreciate it you're like a real journalist on MTV you're relying on your like highbrow MTV. we can have that conversation later on I'm interested in in being and someone who has their own talk show and and has to sit across from people why did you want to do that you this whole great career. then this talk show thing okay so I have a talk show called this just out with Liz Feldman and it is what I describe as a gay positive talk show that I host from my kitchen table and I interview lesbians and women of interest to the lesbian community I myself am day and I just felt there was a real dearth of shows for the lesbian community especially shows that really aim to encourage women and you know and all LGBTQ people to come out and be proud and laugh and you know I I wish I had something like that when I was growing up and so I do it as a as a sort of an act of love honestly and it's it's probably of all the work I've ever done the thing I get the most out of it's the so when she took a representation because on April twenty six you put it on Instagram a picture of you as a kid that I'm better eleven years old this pack I didn't know I was gay but I definitely knew I was different hash tag Liz billion bills ability to AS. that was very sweet thing to put on yeah what did you really feel comfortable with you what age. that is a great question it is it is it is a revolution in progress yeah I know I I mean I'm there now I mean I think you know I mean I came out around seventeen sort of not by choice my mother dragged me out of the closet because she just you know knew me better than I knew myself and it is an evolution but I would say I'm extremely happy with who I am in a lot of that is because I have a wonderful wife name Rachel camp to who makes me feel good every day hi Rachel hi rich my guess is that.
Linda Cardellini on new Netflix show, 'Dead to Me'
"Hi, everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening in the culture. And my guess today's Linda Cartolini, who is having a year of years, first of all green book wins the Oscar as best picture, you know, that's pretty great. And then basically, you do a horror film, cursive, love Ronin becomes number one over the Easter weekend. And now you have a series on Netflix called dead to me, which is secret is that other little indie movie made this year called ventures endgame? Tiny movie. You know, that's why we're here we, we wanna push that kind of thing, you gotta help that one out. But dead to me. Is this like wonderfully interesting show where I've read talk to some people say, but I don't know what it is. Is it a comedy? Is it a drama? And I keep saying what's life, right? Yeah, yes. All of those things. But so that I don't get in major trouble. Okay. You set up, what did to me is, we jokingly call it a trauma D, because Trump so that they go through. And it's about these two people myself and Christina Applegate, who meet at a grief group and become unlikely friends. I'm very free spirited sort of optimistic person and she's very guarded angry widow, and, and we've both done through tremendous loss. But we both have secrets that were keeping and, and in major complications in our characters that make it interesting. And, and so it sort of unraveled from there. But the thing that I loved about. It as you can't define the tone of the show or the Jon Rao of the show. It doesn't really fit in a box, so shimmy ends where I go, what I know that I love that. There is a suspense element to it that it wasn't just these two characters to, to females that you could kind of inner change your line. They're very separate very defined characters that sort of lock in on this intimate relationship. But then it's a character story. But it's also that a lot of plot. So that, you know, twists and turns, and I can barely talk about it because everything is a spoiler. Have you ever said the phrase, the title of this any other human in your life? You're dead to me. No, no. I have. Yes. I know it's, it's a good one, though is it's, it's tough somebody's dead to somebody. That's while you're still living. Of you. Women in this show have many reasons six. Yes. Absolutely. To absolutely no careful. I was Hank, you I very much appreciate, well, you basically, and Christina Applegate r. The controlling forces of this show. You know, you could just say, hey. I didn't like episode four improve at USA. Know how diva esque. Or she actually where near not just in general, which is nice is something we actually get along about. I think for big team players. So that was really fun and important to me going into the project because you, you work if you were going to series, you work with people for a long time. So I wanted to be sure that I really enjoyed the people I worked with, and she's amazing, Liz Feldman. Who's the creator in the show. Runner is incredible. Her mind is incredible. Her is incredible her heart is in is, is genuine, she's a wonderful person. And so a she, it's her vision and her bay. We have brilliant writers and staff and everything, but really choose at the head of it all. And it's very easy to trust her. So we just sort of give you know, ju- given before they had never met really look that in one way. It's very right for the series. Yeah. Yeah. 'cause you don't. Yeah, but there's such an easy -ness of between the two of you there. Is and I was so grateful, because it just happens or at dozens and the first time we met, we both were signed on to do it. And we had lunch with Liz, and Jessica, Alba motor, our producers who we both know we both worked with the different movies, and they both said, you know, you guys are gonna love each other, and we met, you know, people say that often, and then you meet somebody, like, okay, you know, it takes awhile to get to know somebody, but we really instantly felt like we knew each other and, and it's been very, very easy to be with her and to, to do this with her and, and she really has my back and I have her, so it's, it's a wonderfully worked beautifully. I couldn't be more

"To me is that there's so much more to explore, but also what you think you saw in season, one may not be what you think you saw specifically in the end of the of the season. So here's what I want to tell you this might be you wife said to me when that ended I don't want to give it away for everybody. But I have to say some version here, my wife said to me, I bet it was the sun that did that. And I was like, how can that be? We just saw Christina Applegate, do it. I don't want to give away what season two's going. But that was that was the discussion that we had in our house. The moment we finished the season. Well, that's good to know because, you know what I'm always interested in doing. The storyteller is subverting expectations. You know, my experience of life is that just when you think one thing is going to happen. It's always something else. You know, it is life itself is still with somebody, we're turns, and twists. And so pretty much from moment, one from the, the pilot episode in season, one of that to me, that's the kind of story I was looking to tell which is like something that you think you know what you think you know it's going to happen, but you probably don't. So I'll just say, though, I really appreciate your wife. Theory, you know, she may think that, but you'll have to watch find out all rest assured. We will now what kind of timeframe are we talking about here? Yes, they said yesterday that you guys can do season two. But how long is this going to take? We're looking at, like twenty twenty twenty twenty one when, when do we think we can get this done? Well, that's a great question. You know, I I start tomorrow. So I will I will, you know, do it as quickly as I can. But I think we are airing out around the same time, that's he's out, but in twenty twenty so hopefully may twenty twenty do do Christina or Linda call you and say, hey, we're good to go. Here's what might be fun, do they throw any ideas that you do? They get any say in this. I this is a collaboration for sure. And, you know, it's, it's only Michael as the show runner to make sure that everybody feels comfortable with what we're doing. You know, they're both really incredibly trusting in terms of the creative process, and they had no input into season, one, because I had written it pretty much, you know before they were cast. So with season two I feel like they're kind of excited. And, and you know, when the love to joke pitch at me like she loves to, you know, come up with ideas, but she knows that a millionaire, we would never do, and so mostly, it's just for fun. But, you know, I, I will definitely involve them more in, in the creative processes time around just next the next time she joked, pitches, you, deadpan, her and say, I love that. Just say what she does. I, I will try that. Liz Feldman congratulations on season. One success. It's a fantastic show. If you guys haven't seen a dead to me is the name of it. It's on Netflix. It is absolutely worth your time. They look Liz, there's so much good TV out in good series stuff out right now. That I mean, man, if you're not good enough, it's like the restaurant business. If you're not good enough, you're going to go by, but guess what you're not going by by because you are good enough. That's the compliment that I can give you. Thank you so much. It's been such a pleasure talking to you. I really appreciate you know, your support and until you're listening to, to watch.

"Up in just about ten minutes. Liz Feldman, the creator of the series dead to me just got renewed yesterday by Netflixing sure enough. He's coming on today. So can't wait to talk to get a lot of questions for love that series. If you haven't seen it yet stars, Christina, Applegate, Linda Cartolini and fantastic series only one to one season so far really good. And got a lot of questions for her. And a meantime. Waffles. There's a waffles a big sports guy for those of you don't know. And there's something that's got his knickers in a not. So I'm gonna give you a couple of minutes here to get this off your chest. Waffles, you go. Right ahead vs. You see the thing going on the Tom Brady is now enraged, all of New York Mets nation. I have. Yes. So Tom Brady is seeking to trademark the nickname. Tom terrific. Now, for those you out there that are listening that are all while my age or, you know, within ten years of my age. Probably don't know that Tom terrific was actually the nickname for hall of fame pitcher, Tom Seaver for the couple of decades that he pitched in the major leagues including here in Boston fervor, what seven games not only seven games, but it was part of his deal that he didn't have to be with the team if he wasn't pitching. I never heard of that before, but Seaver was just. And then the other four days. Yeah, you're not you're golf there. But whatever. I assume that this isn't really Brady doing this. I assume this is some people, I'm sure, and I'm not sure that he knows about it. But even if he does, or doesn't is irrelevant they shouldn't, get the name, I think he should. That's not there's two reasons why he shouldn't. I think it's a very high standard in order to get a name trademark part of it should be that you are. Recognizably identifiable with that name. For example, Lou Gehrig, the Ironhorse. Sure. Because when I hear Ironhorse I think Lou Gehrig, salt, miss, what? Yup. Babe Ruth, splendid splinter Ted Williams, like there's certain the great one wouldn't go down the list, whatever. But there's certain names that are so obviously used. So when you hear Tom terrific, you immediately think of Tom Seaver. Yes. See. I see. Okay. But that's number one, but you don't think Brady this is the problem copyright is for protection. So that. Someone can't profit off of you anyone trademark. Yeah. Okay. But anyone selling his shirt that says, Tom terrific, no one's going to buy that. Thinking Brady will once he gets it will they can't do it then. But, but so unless Brady's now nicknaming himself. Tom terrific. It's not his name. No one goes, he's go. You wanna do. Tommy Goater Brady go to find, but he, he would be better doing that. Gio, ET than doing Tom Sawyer. He's not Tom terrific. Nobody calls them that nobody but anyways v because Mets fans are just a miserable bunch of. Anyway, they're planning to gather at an upper east side restaurant called sojourn today at five pm for a Boston tea party. See what they did there, where they will where they will dump jerseys and memorabilia of Brady into garbage bags filled with beans. I stupid with Sola. Then what are they gonna fish them out? And then wash them and take them back home with them or like, why would anyone in New York have her? So she vers former teammate arch sham ski will be in attendance at the rally to discuss the legacy of the one and only. Tom terrific, Tom Seaver while fans will hold a press conference, demanding Brady apologize to see her his family, and Mets fans everywhere soldier in the restaurant will provide free beer and food for any Mets fans in attendance. The I'm for Brady getting this just because it's made Mets Mets Twitter Mets nations. So angry and I just want them to be miserable for everything anyway, the Mets fans have pretty miserable. I'm wondering, I haven't seen it, but I'm wondering if. Tom Seaver is plaque in the hall of fame. I bet it says, Tom terrific think it does. Yeah. I think I saw the picture of it that he would have to. He is that that's absolutely him. So this is a foolish thing that Brady's people do you think that's one of the best nicknames over? Sports wise. I if you relevant, whether it's good or not. But yeah. That was his name, if you had to come up with the top ten no, I did. I see where you're going here. Li- waffles. You want to do that tomorrow. Why not? All right. So we'll do the top ten sports nicknames of all time. Tom Terrific's not going to be in there. But Tom terrific is Tom a lightning list. Yeah. We'll be I could even find ten times that are better to be terrific than Thompson. Who's doing at me or you because I I'm happy to do it. Turco Health Day of the ten best sportsman, I'll give him my Craigslist. Correct. Ten fine tomorrow, top ten sports nicknames of all time in honor of Tom terrific, who is Tom Seaver, who is Tom Brady? Eightieth TB, twelve Tom terrific. He's on all the above.

Multiple Brady is so good. He doesn't need. He's risen above that. That's the thing about Brady others need it because you wouldn't know him. Otherwise, quick break.

"Bloodbath. I gotta tell you this. There was a time when I doubted myself this week, not unlike probably the Golden State Warriors after they lost a game four, and it was locked up with the rockets. I'm sure they doubted themselves. And you know, certainly, they doubted themselves after Kevin Durant hurt his calf. I don't have to explain this to you guys now. And I thought to myself, you know, maybe I should have included those crazy of Philippine buses. Somebody made a documentary about them, they're they're wild. They're amazing all kinds of customization and stuff like that. I think maybe maybe those Lino crazy colored colorful, beautiful buses of Mexico or India to other places with famous crazy buses. But then I said to myself Jesse. Why are you questioning yourself? This is what you're good at. Sure. This is your gift, you know, God gave you a voice sing out. Beautiful. Thank you very much. I'm a sort of an inspirational figure. Yeah. I can for me. You are right in this sorta like Brunei Brown sort of for digits. I mean, I think what is what is winning these the factor that I think we're seeing is influencing these is it's all it's travel based like I think elephants was huge because people have done elephants when they travel audiences well traveled. Yeah. I guess so. Yeah. I think I am leaning on like I mean leaning on kind of like like pop nerd stuff, right which is doing well. But I mean, I think you know, it seems like you gotta leave the country because leave the country. Yeah. I I got some here. Okay. And I don't think this is I don't think this is going to be a huge one. Is it just one where I want to know the answer. So I think a lot of our listeners probably do karate. Yeah. Or done karate like Jordan. You did karate right? Yeah. I did Crotty lessons as a kid me to buddy. Sure, I got like four six lessons. Hi ya. Exactly. To put your fist ups ident-. And then put right side up when you're punching. Ha, yeah. You've got it. You didn't need any more lessons. How many Jordan Jesse go listeners have done karate? In real life. Not in a not audio outside the karate contest or the karate practice room or DOJ. Oh now studios. Really, I have not done crowd, for example, one place. You could do it Pilates studio that would count that account. That's real life recording studios. There's real life. Ha when you're practicing karate in it. It's doj. Oh, yeah. Any any place can be a DOJ and even the human heart. Wow. Wow. I guess there's a new brunette Brown for shit. It's me. I don't think I know who that is. Looker out. Okay. What an inspirational figure she's friends went from real. She's friends with our friend. Liz gilbert. Oh, all you need to know golden with us. Okay. So I'm also going to say, I'm interested to know if you practice a non karate, martial art, and you've dead in you've done that in real life. I'm interested in that too. But I want you to clarify what martial art you've done that would Tai Chi count because you can do people do that everywhere pushing dancer, I'm just talking about. No, I'm not talking just about a venue. I'm talking about a practical use. So you're saying karate someone if you ever karate someone or Jeep Coon Dodi, someone more whatever the only thing I'm going to say it's got to be an actual martial arts. So if you just took self defense class where you learned to kick people in the shins than the balls than the head. That's awesome. I'm all for everyone empowering themselves to defend themselves, especially people who live under the possible. The threat of violence. That's great. You know, defend yourself. Be proud be strong. That's my purse. I don't know you. However, I I'm specifically interested in martial arts training. Gotcha us in a practical context. And I think mine will be have you ever interacted with someone who is on Buffy the vampire slayer or it's spin off a jolt. All right. That's really good. What about doubling down? What about the Buffy the vampire slayer comic books? What if we met like the artist Ryan cave on what have you met? I've met cave. So nice, man..

"How are you to talk to you? We have to be very very careful whenever discussing game of thrones. Because I know how much it means to people to not know too much. If they haven't seen the episode has spoiled everything I haven't watched it. But you already know what's going on? All over social media. Listen, there's been a lot of discussion about this and spoilers in particular between vendors and gave the last weekend as well. As the battle of winter filled episode with game of thrones. And you saw opposite things you've seen with Gabe, certainly some people have talked about things online. But for the most part people have been relatively quiet even for a full week about that movie. I is that a winter fell in all cop to doing this myself as it was happening. Every single plot beat it was boiled stuff. And I think part of that is people are treating it like almost like a live sports event. It's not exactly the same thing. Right. It's something that everybody's watching together. Everybody's streaming together. Everybody's excited screaming at the same time. And that he might opinion at least I don't want to step on anybody who has spoiler phobic, in my opinion. At least there's something very special about that at a very different way. It's nice about not having seen a minute of it. I'll see a headline that says, can you believe what they did with the winter Warlock? And I'm like, I don't know what that means. So I'm you know.

But literally dark, you know, certainly spoiler. I guess people died. There was a huge battle got. But there was a huge uproar because it was filmed in the dark. It's a night battle the entire time. The name of the episode belong night, and a lot of yours complaining that they could not see anything in the episode for the most part the lighting was off with torches that people are carrying a little bit of dragon fire that was coming down. And that was pretty much it depending on the settings on your viewing device. It really was just a black. And that was it the cinematographer shot back at people and said, well, that's not by fault. I shot at correctly. You've just set your TV the wrong way. Like, maybe the wrong response to that. I did. But I will say as somebody who watched on my laptop with contrast all the way up. It is a really beautiful episode at if you've got like on your TV you couldn't see it for whatever reason that give it another shot on another device and see what you. Picked up you talk about like the live tweeting in the social media with game of thrones ABC, the kids are all right is on the bubble. They don't know if they're going to be picked up for a second season. So on Tuesday night during the episode a lot of the stars Michael cutlets? Mary McCormack these people were live tweeting as it was going on. And it was super fun and the ratings went up because of it. We're gonna be talking to Mary McCormick on Tuesday about the kids are alright, but there's some kind of community where you feel like you're there with the stars. You know, watching it together. It's kind of a cool feeling it's actually become and this is not necessarily for many behind the scenes to reassess info so much is seeing people talking about it a lot at hearing people talk about it and show runners, but social conversation become a very important part of a pickup process, particularly as ratings have gone down across the board because less about. Necessarily those live viewers, but so much about how passionately those live years are talking about that saying specifically that works like say the seat w or free far better a little younger skewing that are a little more social they almost don't care about the broadcast ratings so much as are. They streaming it are they talking about are they meaning at I think that's starting to bleed through into other shows like ABC shows like the kids. All right, but are on the bubble that if they're not quite sure if it has all the viewers there at the very least people are excited about having the time talking about it. But that can give it the push it to be picked up. It's so interesting because this is a concept that not that long ago would have been impossible, of course. But now, it's becoming more commonplace. Isn't it? Absolutely. I mean pretty much any sale if you're a fan of it you'll see on a given week the show runner, the creators the actors involved live tweeting about it, particularly if they're savvy about it like you were saying, we're kids. All right. Certainly I see a lot of shows like last night cloak-and-dagger was obviously for they. That's actually a great one. If you're a fan of that show because it's very layer Duan show and the creator will pop in almost constantly through the episode. And this really fascinating behind the scenes info about the show. Like, hey, here's why we picked this thing about the set. Maybe you didn't notice this thing that was a callback to an episode season one. Here's where we got to use it for this part of the episode, and it's almost like that age myself. But it's almost like VH what pop up video time. It's that. Yeah. You know, what else is nice dimension is on the goldbergs at the end of episode where they'll have on the actual teacher the real teacher. And then the actor who played him on the show. They'll talk about what they did to to make that happen. That's an impressive little extra layer. I like that element. Listen, the more bonus you can give the viewers and the more you make them feel part of the show the better it is for your experience. Yep. Yep. I have seen Christina Applegate on a bunch of late night. Talk shows talking about her new series dead to me that premiers on Netflix today. What can you tell us about dead to me? Sure, this is the from writer. Liz Feldman stars Christina Applegate. And Linda Cartolini is to grieving widows dark comedy, according to our viewer, and according to a lot of their views. It's not the best show in the world. That's very focused on twists. It's a little long. Josh Kraushaar, attach writer is actually reading something right now about this says, regardless of anything, Christina Applegate, Linda Cartolini are superb at had and they're normally treated as just comedic actress, quote, unquote, this really gives them a chance to act and delve into the material. And so regardless of what you think of the show if you like these two performers you might have a really good time watching she used the phrase, I watched her the other night on his show. And she used the phrase nothing is what you think it is. I meant got my attention. And then I thought, but that's the way real life is now do I want that on TV? We're nothing that is. Unless you're having twists that happened to you every certain minutes, it's slightly different. Okay. I guess that's good news Zack Ephron is on TV playing the evil evil. Ted Bundy, what's that all about? Yeah. Those are the new movie that came to net flix today. He's starring as Ted Bundy as you said, but name of the movie is extremely wicked shockingly evil, and vile is actually from director Joe Berlinger who did conversations with a killer. Ted Bundy tapes, it was on Netflix earlier this year that was a documentary. This is a biopic. But what this does is the script a little bit and focus other women in tight, but these life, but people that loved him despite have absolutely everything. And according to our viewer animate. It's also movies. Okay. I if you're looking for something a little better about it Bundy, maybe check out documentaries. But Zac Ephron is superb at it. He's magnetic. He's terrible. They don't away for the fact that Ted Bundy is one of the first human beings that's ever existed. But it's a great performance. I have to say that is one of those people that I don't know if I'm supposed to like, but I always end up liking him, everything, cinnamon. Yeah. He did movie with Hugh Jackman about the circus. I thought he was fantastic. And that greatest show. And he's super magnetic performer. And I think at a very weird way. Underrated. Yeah. He's too good. Looking to be Ted Bundy. I know everybody said Ted Bundy was very good looking was he was all right? He was no Zach Ephron. All right. Well, good. What is flinch all about? This is another Netflix show, right? Oh, boy, I cannot believe this is real at all. So there's a new show called plant. It's on Netflix today as a game show was made in Ireland. It didn't broadcast there though. This is a Netflix original. And here's the causes of the shot. I've got to tell you the concept that you're not gonna believe Israel. So the cost of the show is contestants sit in chairs of the game show things happen to them like chickens peck at their faces or they get trotted or they get tickled. And if they flinch they get electrocuted. Why is that? Tire concept of the show. So it's like make me laugh but times thousand make me fry. Cute it. I mean is it like a shock collar electrocuted because I mean. With a real it's with a cattle product. Oh, really? Yes. Now, a what by writers Brett way was brave it up to actually watch this dive, you know, Bill pun intended for it forever south. And he said that about it. It sounds like a distortion game show that would exist in some sort of movie Rigo while that's terrible that could never exist. Right. But the thing that works is everybody apparently is laughing hysterically and having the best time the entire time. So even though these horrific tortures scenarios the people involved in it or joining it, the people that are watching it if the audience or a joy it so. Yeah, I don't know if I can watch it to be perfectly honest with you. But it's sounds like one of the crazy issues that Flynn it's on that flicks. Watch cops when they get in a fight or there's some kind of physical thing going on. There's no way I could watch this. Can you actually hear I need to see it? Now. I really do. I need to see. All right. I'll watch it. It's on Netflix. You said and that starts when today today it's up today. All right. Very good. A couple of cast members. There's controversy says to whether or not they are leaving Saturday Night Live one is Kate McKinnon and the other is Keenan Thompson, do you know, the case either one. I don't think there's been any definitive call about either of them Kate. Mckinnon contract is up suits. You certainly been doing a lot of movies. She also just signed up a fishery to Hulu show based on the Lisbon homes, but Serono's founder, so she's going to be doing dramatic comedic take on that. But that's not going to be out for a while. I would say that one's a little fifty fifty right now, certainly she has star power to go and do her own thing that also she clearly still enjoys SNL as our home base..
