"She is amazing season to I think it got a little I don't know it didn't like dragged a little bit towards and and Suzy who's Alex Bernstein's. Character is just like driving me crazy. I'm just I just hate her. I just wish Mazel fire. She's just drags her down talented comedian and her like manager Susie is just like this foul person. Who just like like ruins things for sues for? For Mazel for midge Mazel and just doesn't offer any redeeming qualities as a manager. It really makes us it's kind of relatable Leach in those certain way, where she was the person who said, hey, you could really do this, and I'm gonna manage you. And then from there on out it's been this kind of weird symbiotic relationship where clearly midges this like ridiculously talented star in the just in waiting and Suzy is like not up to the task of managing her which definitely comes up a lot season two and just doesn't rever well and like blows opportunities, and it's just kind of a disaster. And so you're sitting there midfields kind of obligated to her and like, I get it. But it is frustrating at times I felt that way to just thinking you need to just you guys can be friends, but you just to fire and like getting ready. She's terrible bench. She's not a good friend. She's like a foul horrible person. And like it almost feels like you're watching an abusive relationship or she's like a to midge Mazel like midge Mazel just like like puts up within. And it's it's kind of sad. Supposed to be it's played as a comic thing. It's actually goes. But yeah, fantastic show the stuff with the Catskills, the episodes or they go to Catskills and season to just a standing stellar stuff. And I like this Ackley character comes in. He's pretty good general. Yeah. Just really good. Steph, really really good ass TV show highly recommended I think that's a prime on problem show yet is Kirkwood about you now have time because I wasn't here last week. So I to cover over too many things I'll go through a few. Well, so the first thing I watched was the first part of leaving never land. Which is the new Michael Jackson documentary like four hour Documenta watch this, but I got away. It's not depressing. It's like horrifying. And really. I mean, it's really it's a rough watch. But I think it's a really important one than they do recommend that you guys watch it. And that people watch it, I think it's I specially like as someone who recently, I did a whole strong songs episode about thriller. Like, I've really love Michael Jackson's music. I've played it endlessly at a million different bands. And like, he's a musical genius, etc. And it was we all did the thing where we kind of looked away from this thing about him because it was never fully settled. And you know, there were these allegations that he had done inappropriate sexual things with children. And then then he kind of got cleared exonerated in that one trial, and everyone could kind of say, well, there was the weird thing that the kids, but I don't know..

"Oh, four wing. Just wait. You'll see. Crazy is the the scene begins with them both talking about how anti-social they're feeling and then they get into this immediately. When each other. Yeah, very deep. Do you think forgiveness thing? Hey stranger. Oh, yeah. Joe's jumping into the deep dry. Hate people are and then he says and Benjamin totally engages. He's like okay weirdo. I'm going now. Walk away that you I've got bummed the life from you. He's like, oh, yeah. Let's have this philisophical. That was applied. The longest and most uninterrupted finale of a fireworks display ever. Because the whole time they're talking like. Lasted for two and a half hours. I thought this scene was Bill shit because I was like, okay. So what's what is it the Joel I've thought Joel was firmly. Here's Joe's conflict. He's in love with midge midges in love with him. He wants to be midges husband. But he also doesn't have much outside of that. And he needs more outside of it. Because midge is so great and is an amazing comedian. He wanted to be comedians. His ego is shattered, and he has to find a way to like build up his ego again, and he knows he can't stand being the husband of popular comedian. And he knows that. So he's taken that hit. And it's like he's dealing with it now, then he's like do we have a gif forgive mistakes? What are you talking about? That's over your done with that part. That's not the problem construct. It was like a flat Sarka time cycle. What are you doing? I don't understand felt like such like, oh, we'll just walk in. It was like Email battle. You know, EMA babble should that's what they should cultural. Imo? Are you on our out on Joe you want reconciliation of out on? Oh, come on. Take those apps. Elsewhere. Yeah. I mean, they're space right over here. But still I'm all timidly with Richie, although I see his appeal more season two. But overall, I just I just wanted to gather picture and Mitch to do the tonight show or whatever she's going to do. No, no, see, you're more interested in this stuff. You are the comedy stuff. Yeah. Because like comedy stuff is solid in. If like if I'm like putting myself in midge Mazel shoes. It's just a matter at time before you get to be on the tonight show. Right. Like, it's like just a tunnel. You just gotta go through it. There's no plot there. Right. What if my life has been that way? Like, there's no what I get out of my career. I put into it. But with bromance, it's different and it's complicated by the aspects by the other things, the the life pursuit is is is what is complicating. You know what I mean? Because it's because of who I am which I attribute to being a comedian that my romantic life is complicated. Right. I allow for the possibility that Joel could have his own Evelyn canary arc that gets them to a place where I would be where I feel like he deserves midge. But right now, he doesn't this is the first episode where you say you allow for the I thought you said you laugh at the idea, and I was like, well, I like the idea that that could happen, but I don't incident. But I don't think he's there yet. He starts to show it just a bit into a four with that speech at worrying tation. And I'm like, okay. Yeah. This guy has some backbone because that's what I think he's been lacking up until this point. And if he can if you can show more of that that'll inch me closer to the idea that maybe they should be needs his backbone. Yes. What do you think you need to be his own person get out from under the thumb of his dad, and he has to be an have enough. You know security to feel like he can support his wife for her own as an as an entire person. Not just an extension of him. Yeah..

"It's balls. I'm Jesse thorn. The stereotype goes usually that there are character actors and stars a character actor can show up in a couple of scenes, maybe even five minutes, and in that one moment on screen, they make the film. That's the kind of thing that my guest Tony shalhoub can do. Well, a star. Of course, you build the whole movie around our TV show their relatable, usually charming and kind of vulnerable, and my guess Tony shalhoub can do that too. He's a veteran of both the big and small screens. He's had unforgettable parts in movies like Barton Fink men in black quick change. He starred in movies like big night TV shows like wings. And of course, they hit detective series muck. These days he's a regular on the Amazon show. The marvelous MRs Mazel, it's a drama set in the late nineteen fifties. Rachel Brosnahan plays the title character midge Mazel when the series starts out midge is a house. Wife living in Manhattan who puts her old life behind her to take up stand up comedy. She splits with her husband takes kids and moves back in with their parents. And in fits and starts her stand up career takes off my guest, Tony shalhoub. Plays a voice, man. Midges dad a role that's gotten Tony a handful of awards, including an EMMY nomination. The show's second season just launch in it midge is still living with her family. Her mother rose has moved out of the apartment. She fled to Paris. And it I it hasn't really sunk in for a after all rose has a big party coming up back home. But in this scene, we're about to hear it finally dawns on him. Are you kidding? Me. Mama moved to parent. What veteran? What you just said what you just told me. The mama told you she was moving to parent. I never said that I don't feel like I have a life peer everyone in everything that I've ever counted on has let me down, and you said, okay. No. I should lamb was. Okay. And it was brief. Honestly Papa John. Listen, not true. You don't listen to anyone don't feel like I have a lifestyle repeating that. All right. I'll admit that. Sometimes I tune people, but mostly because they rarely have anything useful or interesting to say. What? Emptied her perfume is gone. Wishes things. And guessing Paris. What was she going to wear to the party tonight notice this you sleep right there? Live here to you didn't notice either her husband in her closet way, more than I am. Tony shalhoub. Welcome to bullseye. It's great. Have you on the show? Thank you. Nice to be here. I saw you wince at your character saying he doesn't listen to other people mostly because they don't have anything interesting. That sounds a little Larry Ghent, I suppose. I mean, one of the funny things about your character on this show is. I think the show is not about your character. Your character is a secondary character show character shell right and. In a lot of shows like this, especially funny ones, which is very funny. It would be fine to let the protagonist have the journey. Right. Like the protagonist gets to go on a journey. Everybody else has a funny thing about them that the audience recognize support that protagonists arc I suppose in your character has changed a lot in two seasons of the show. Yeah, it's a very it's rare for for series, very character in series television. Really? Because as you say normally, you're you know, you get hired. And then you're kind of somewhat limited to what you're being called on to to do. What purpose you serve in for actors that can be frustrating at times because you you're the guy that does this or you're the sort of stupid guy, or you're know, the lethargic or whatever it is. And you get kind of confined. Constrained into playing two colors three if you're very lucky, and I been fortunate in in this case to you that they're they're just. My character happens to be in place in his life where he's in is in transition like the, and I think it's because of of the transition that midges in my daughter is going through all her changes are impacting all of the people around her in. We're not just when we're not just stuck in our in our little mode. I was watching the first episode of the second season earlier today where you and your daughter travelled to Paris, and you're wearing an overcoat a Brown overcoat with a blue check that. If they had just showed me that overcoat. I'd be like, yeah. Okay. How many years is the contract for? Guess I get to wear that overcoat. Yes. Salt. Yeah. And that that speaks to this whole idea that know this like I love this idea that we're in we're in the fifth late fifties. I just I guess the forties and the fifties have always been a really good those good decades for me in terms of playing characters and especially today because I think we all need as viewers, and as certainly factors respite from present day craziness. And what this the other thing that this affords us is this, you know, there are no cell phones in this show there. No computers. Computers are the size of this room. You know, there's no. We're low tech were super low tech. And I just find that. So refreshing. I'm Jesse thorn. You're listening to Balzac I'm here with the actor Tony shalhoub. You were the star of monk for many seasons. This won't be news to you. I Saturday's though. Sounds familiar. Yeah. Which was detective procedural on USA comic detective procedural in which your character was the brilliant genius. Detective who in part his genius detecting was colored by his obsessive compulsive Ness. And I really think it is one of the best of this kind of show that has ever been made. It is so hard to make a show like this. That is pleasant to so many people that also is sharp and specific and so on and so forth. You know what I mean? Like, it's sort of defined what the USA network evens to some extent still is today. But like it's about an incredible specificity and especially in your performance. Thank you. And I wonder what it was when it came to you. You and how it came to you? To pilot had been at it was I at ABC for a number of years, and was kind of languishing there, you with a lot of these things, you know, you all has to kind of fit together you have to have the right person in the right at the right time and. That was just. Just not getting any traction. And then he an executive. Was departing ABC and going over to USA and asked to take this property and see if they could develop it and that was fine. And then and then I believe it was at ABC. I mean, I'm sure I believe it was at USA for a year. Before it came to me. Number of people had they had approached a number of different actors at both networks some accurate approach them. And it just it just never would I even think Michael Richards. I heard was circling it for a while or they were circling in in. I you know, I just it was just fortunate. My manager at the time. I was reading the pilot for another client of hers. She was actually reading it for the character of Sharona this system, and then she was reading it. She thought of me, and so it to me. I had never heard of it. I didn't know anything about it. In and I met with the network and the writers and we were off to the races. And we had to I was the first one attached. So they asked me I mentioned that I would like to be involved as a producer too. So I could have some input voice. And so they asked me to read with people audition. Moore auditioning people for two Ronin startled Meyer, and all the other regulars. In which I was happy to do. That's how we put it all together. What did you think about it? When you I thought. Well, when I first read it, I didn't really respond to it. Because I didn't I thought it was good. But I didn't see my way into it. And I called my manager. And I said that I should look I I I get what you're I don't. I don't get how how's this me? And she. He's very subtle. And she said, you better read it you should read it again because this is more you probably want to admit. And so I did. And I read it a second time and. It to become clear. And in the script that I read the pilot script, and I remember there's a long time ago. Okay. But the script that I read was. It wasn't really the pilot that we wasn't exactly the pilot. We shot. It was written more. It was broader. It was I think it originally was conceived morals like almost like inspector clue. So ish thing except with OCD. It was broader comedy, you know, in that was the part that I felt was was was not a good fit for me. And. Why spoke to my manager about this? And then she said, well, you should sit to sit down you can sit down with the writers and express this and tell them what it is about it that works for you. And how you would like to have them change it. And maybe they will. And and that's exactly what I did. And they were fantastic they were open. And and I said, look, I love comedy. But I think we should maybe tone down the really really broad stuff and let the comedy come out of the guys pain and out of the guys problem. In. And also you have to remember we're talking about a time when we did this right after nine eleven notch not long after nine eleven. So culturally, I think we entered a new level we were entering an age of anxiety of hirings -iety, which this character. I don't I mean, certainly the show the script and the and the idea was conceived before nine eleven is I said it laid around for years, but. Came came time to actually put it on do it and put it on the air people were, you know, I think feeling is they we're we're all in a bit of a state of. What now? How fragile is it all? And so we enter we kind of enter the mindset of this character how he's been living his entire life really until he met his wife and got better. And then she died, and then it got worse. So, but then we were entering also at the same time. We were we knew that we were on a slippery slope because we're dealing with OCD, which is very real and tragic kind of debilitating disorder. And so you don't want to send that up too much you want to honor the people who have it. So we had to we we were kind of like holding our breath that it was going to be received by that. Those people are know that community. In the right way. And do it in do it in a way that. We want what we were trying to do really was to sort of distinct metabolize the disorder because the character had so many good qualities and was so talented in so many ways and could make all these gigantic contributions to society. But it, but maybe just getting out the door. Taking fifteen minutes was would be funny. You know? But we did we I think the writers did a really good job and the whole creative team. Because in capturing the town, we found that sweet spot, and we got a lot of very positive feedback from people who suffered from the disorder or people who had family members who did or even doctors get letters from psychiatrists and psychologists and people say, you know, have referenced your your show in our book in my book that I'm writing about. Mental illness. Oh my God. It was it went way beyond what we intended. Yeah. I mean, I think that the challenge the fact that the the challenge that the character faces is what leads to the resolution and met the the challenge and the pain inherent in the challenges. Real makes the hopefulness of it which is fundamental to this kind of TV is that like part of what you're offering is that the problem will be resolved. So it's comforting in that way. And so the fact that you know, that you will get that comfort. But that you will get it from something that actually feels like it might mirror pain that you might have or fear that you might have exactly because we all I think we all do many many people do to a degree. We have these kinds of. Obsessive compulsive tendencies. But but or we just get fixated on things or. But many of us have ways of dealing with it in coping with it and filtering it. So that it's not as hot as to the rest of the world. And we don't voice or demonstrate these kinds of things were among and have that filter. He just says it and does it and feels it and and demonstrates even more from the great Tony shalhoub when we come back from a quick break still to come. He'll tell me where and why it gets the drive to make art. It's bullseye for maximum dot org..

"Martis people that would be so cool. If he was like, I wish she'd be go and Lenny. Asap. So anyway, I read into that. But I do think they are trying to foreshadow that a little bit. I think they're trying to to tease it because they did have chemistry in the beginning. And now, she is essentially free and Lenny is around. Miriam ISA row right in longtime listener thank you for the question. She says, I mean, Daniel definitely wrote the cartoonish thugs who wouldn't hurt a Rockaway girl, right? Daniel scenes in the Melvin, Amy. Yeah. Yeah. We're all. Layton, goofy Ellen g with the thing with the see the little girl. Like you better find that quarter? So Daniel it's also like we're already here again. Maybe it's it's good to think about Amy stuff is like an RA to Disney movie. Yeah. And maybe midge Mazel will be in the next Disney princesses movies alongside with them. They deconstruct that pretty well. In the new RAF breaks Aaron that they do. Oh, yeah. I heard about. You know, a former friend of the show former guest, Pamela ribbon wrote that movie she voices. Snow White knit because she's so good at it. And she wrote all the stuff with the Disney Princess or they like deconstruct like do you need a man to set like the the the hit all the chokes? It's really smart, and they'll the movie that's mart too. But seemed like particularly I think they're gonna make a franchise like the princesses teaming up at some point. A adv common said didn't win cry. During this episode mailing the midge Joel phone call. Do you think that Joel is redeemable slash was partially redeemed this episode or season over all I think the redemption for me is on like, why do we need this character unless so like the man who he is? But his value to the story. I'm really curious. How to the story is set it. We have children together. We're gonna see each other for the rest of our lives. Right. So he might not be the romantic, you know, but he always has that Christopher. Sure Christopher was in like two to season. I know but he's still being into the season. Didn't mean that he was like the brass ring of, you know, right? But I'm saying Jolson in every episode of this dam season. I think I mean, we haven't seen just saying he doesn't have to be walking alongside midge to be as important to sure her. I'm just gonna I'll be a little bummed if this season ends up being like midget Suzy on the row road. What's going on with Jolo anything? Joel and Ethan Coen brothers movie. It's true. They didn't do it on purpose. So yeah, I guess there's a possibility of that. But it did. Redeem this scene made it like, okay? This is again like I said last season. This is interesting to me. It is interesting. I know this guy this a real guy that I've dated. So let's see if this guy can start to figure out his shit and get his life together to me. It's like, but one of Joel's what's going on with JOL. Is that Joel meet somebody else that you know, he's like yet again another ball breaker. Who's got you know, like what if he starts dating somebody above him at a company or I don't know. Is there a possibility of that for Joel? I mean, there's a lot of ways this could go for me. That would be interesting. I just think man after all the the fatty he so he should make out with a hot guy. He should make hot guy. Yeah. This is just a page from your fan pick loop. See see what's little page fell out of my nose. If you're a comic in this. If you're castle shows like a recurring you would be your catchphrase on stage would seep see kick your Guston, the go. And they'd love it. They frigging just a little band. LA comic. I'm just a little dead. Current LA comic saying things like I'm just a little bitty stupid.

"So great because that's what she gets into. It is her like shock, and that's how it doesn't celebration. Where it's like, oh, you you're beautiful. I don't like the celebration the excessive salutes. Condescension. It. Does if feels like aren't you doing so? Well, like, but that would be someone in the fifties would cla mate, it's hard to put twenty would. I really like. Wow. Okay. You know, like I feel like they would just kind of be weird it out and be like this is normal. Okay. You know? But like treat them like there's fizzle way to treat them as people without like so putting kid gloves on and like conspicuously onboard for it that gross to be like, I love it so much. It's just like the good. Does. And yet bothered me. It's tough because we're viewing it through some eight lenses. Well, also, it's one of those things where she does this all the time where she makes the heroin like like, she's so great everything. She does. It's great chisel. Right. Opinions. She has the right. You know, never wrong. You know, like like you're supposed to like her all the time. And it's like, I don't know. I just feels pollyanna. I dunno. I don't care. This is a game that wanted to go in the conversation of like, even like a lot of male critics are like, oh, this is because this was made preemies to or Lavi was conceived before then and then it coming out. It does seem of time and like women reclaiming what is identity what is power and all this stuff. But that being said, I think there is such this happens in every show where there's a female protagonist every show again, it kind of gets back to that conversation, Dewey, allow female diligence like your feminists hero, right? Mitch Mazel or it's like not really like neither. Was Laura liar. Michelle or Livia po- for like, the these women aren't built to carry the weight of all your cultural expectations, but we still kind of zero the conversation into like, you're kind of everything we need your hero. But this was a move that like a supported that. Which is see. Yeah. 'cause I'm like, I don't need her to be super okay with this Bosnian being confused. Yeah. I will say I think what road remind can be blown without her being like cool. Cool. All right. You know? Yeah. Like lower. Feel the French translation stuff it's choice. It's a choice is both. Yeah. It is magical. That's one. I was like this is a fairy tale. This is a very and helping everybody the minute you're in you're in the movie in the beginning. She's helping everyone no one can do their job place. And she's the only one she's been up at the till the later season. But she's been on the in the show. You know, it's an R rated Disney movie. Have I forgot about midge, and how midge Mazel is just amazing, and it's of ROY Gilmore it's like like, it's amaz-. She's a superhero. Well, Gilmore seasons one through right? But yeah, but she's an amazing like uncanny super complex superbeing that is just a fun hang at the same time. And I forgot about that. When I started watching this. I I hid attached to the story without remembering that we're supposed to all be in that world and believe that. And so when they did the phone thing. I was like, oh, yeah. That's right. Well, because sometimes we've actually talked about us like would stand up work like this do jokes work like this and the answer to those questions is no like no way would some of these jokes like work cross culturally cross linguistically where so much of comedy is based on timing, and the choice of words, it's like no way. No zik. Crazy. It's insane. It's insane. But it's funny. The rhythm at the end when the kind of got into it. And I did like the actress who played the American who could translate who've recommend Sylvia Plath. I thought she was really good. It was like the best case. Era of that. I think I wanted like to less minutes of it or some like, okay, we got it..

And I it's so funny they play upon so many of the Jewish stereotypes in so many funny ways, especially in season two they go to the Catskills, and they're just gone for the summer. And like the kids are just like shift off for two months, and they're just doing and talking the most Jewish ways ever sees a moment the same way too. It's like the names the close, the accents the behavior all of it is so so Jewish and I find it hilarious because I'm from New York, and I have Jewish family, and I've Jewish friends and I've been making fun of Jewish people doing Hanukkah Christmas forever. And like, I I probably know more about I know as much about Jewish people as most some Jewish people because I'm so entrenched in it here in New York, but I can't imagine. And this show is very popular. She wins awards. I think it's it wins awards as a show. So a lot of people are watching it. But it's gotta just be like, New York, and LA and Israel. There's. No way that someone from the mid west can understand any of this just took it on the surface, as it was like, I don't know these are Corky characters not understanding that these are like spot on accurate stereotypes and truths about the Jewish religion. But I can't imagine being being from the midwest being like, I get it moisture Masha, and you know, mule. I get it like I would love to get trends of Indian right? Yeah. Trail will be perfect. It's like, do you get any of this you understand or vibes? Vips had me film, like a Hannukah party skit with him, and he had legitimately never met a Jewish person or came here. I mean, there's yeah. If you're from middle America. Jewish person as is as rare as against I mean, there's there's three people there's three places on earth that you guys exists new LA in Israel because it. And Florida cause that's like New York south yet. That's where the retired us. Great. It's probably it makes it cool for them because it's like a fantasy series game game of thrones says the dragons this show has Jesus. Wow. I could never even imagine something like this creative writers making up characters like the there are no real humans like this. I'm watching a fantasy series. Now man this how they really are. Remember, I only watched half of season one. I liked it. But I I stopped. I remember I texted you. And I was like you watching the show miss Mazel. You were like, yeah. I was like pre Jewish. You're like fuck the most Jewish Fleischmann. Our girl cuts are hair is she is. She is MRs basil like the attitude the jokes the Jewishness all of it. I'm like, you are midge. And she was like fuck. Yeah. I am damn right. It's a very funny show. I I find like if you. The episodes where they go to the Catskills. It is just Jews at summer camp. It is. I think it's ho Larry's because I know that I know how much like the kids just get shipped off to camp. And I know what the parents want to do, and I know all of that shit. So it's and it's spot on. But if you're some Cornfed boy from Iowa, I don't think you're gonna understand midge Mazel. And when I told Fleishman, I wasn't going home for thanksgiving. She was like, oh, you have to come over you're invited. I was like who's going to just my family. You can't. But you gotta come over. And then for a week after she was texting me like the what the spread was making him. I coming thought. This was just a nice offer. She was like no seriously com. Yeah. Yeah. She she is for sure like Jewish mom now. And when I when I tweet like not doing anything for Passover, dinner, whatever I get serious replies. And emails being like, hey, come on over for Passover. My mom said you're welcome juicer, just the nicest people they include she she was telling me about when she did the team tour. She was a kid.

"So the totals for wins, combined creative arts and the regular telecast HBO and Netflix tied with twenty three. So it's much trash that I talked about. Netflix based twenty three wards NBC one sixteen and then affects one twelve, which is pretty good programs. Multiple awards game of thrones was huge, headed huge nights, seven creative arts. And then to the telecasts nine Sunday Night, Live had eight seven at the creative arts and one and then marvelous MRs may Zell which is a fantastic show. Mazel it's hard. I, it's one of those side just learned that it was married Jewish. Yes. They had three with creative arts and they had five on the telecast tonight for them that show is awesome. Show is gotta watch. It was amazing. It actress is amazing. I don't know her name and she's super familiar Rachel Brosnahan, but I can't remember what I've seen her in and she's just can't take your eyes off her. No, she's fantastic. She's fantastic. It's great. I mean, all the other. Characters are also get everybody does a good job in that show. But yeah, she's, they won five, Alex bore Stein one for supporting actress in a comedy series. Amy Sherman palladino is the writer and creator of the show. She also did Gilmore girls and she was the first person to win writing and directing back to back in the same night for the show. Yeah. And so that's pretty awesome. And so like within like thirty minute timespan they went like four words. It was just crazy and Rachel Brosnahan one for the main character whose Miriam midge Mazel. And if you've never watched that show, it's on Amazon prime video and it's essentially about the fifties. It is the fifty s and she's a housewife, you know, 'cause it's the fifteen and a very well to do family Jewish family in New York, and she decides I'm not going to get into why or how, but she decides to do stand up comedy almost by accident, but she's fantastic headed. And it kind of goes from there. It's it's a little. It's very, very funny. It's somewhat serious at times and you really, she's just very real in it like her reactions to things the way she deals with the stresses in her life, like it's very, very real. I'm not sure if it would be super to it. Easy to identify with for people who are have never been married or had children, but it's still going to be hilarious. So all of you should totally watch it anyway. And it also plays with all the gender, you know, ES not stereotype. She's definitely not. She has a mind she likes to use at Tony shalhoub is her dad, the hand, the show, and one of the funnier things for me and I've not watched the whole season but hit. So her mom, they sleep in separate beds like you say, twin bed and with mom does is because she never once. The husband is here without makeup. She will o go to sleep with a makeup on and they'll go to sleep too. Does it to. Oh, really? Okay. You see her do it. I think in the. And show then when he falls asleep, she gets up after you fall asleep goes and washes. All the makeup off goes back. The fake eyelash raise and puts the cold cream on Setzer alarm earlier than his gets up, puts all the makeup back on and then lays back down on the bed for him to wake up and see her. I'll tell her maker affect eight is hilarious, Dickie Lewis and hilarious at the same time. And to think that people actually used to do that kind of boggles my mind. I can't even be bothered to put on makeup for work half the time, but there is also something I'm really enjoying about this show. That's kind of I, I don't really have a better way to describe it other than it feels like play a lot of the staging and the writing feels very much like it was meant for the stage and I'm really enjoying that. I don't get to go to the theater as much as I would like anymore..

"But I like that one as well. I'm almost done with it. Are you done with it? Oh, yeah. I've ripped through anything. Really. You have Vishva now? I haven't. I have two more episodes to dude. I fucking brand into that little that little redneck chick at the airport. I couldn't talk to our and I was just like, cool. I can hang God. Mice. Vilely would fan girl so hard. She's obsessed. She's so good. Everyone shall like him. Bateman is so good in that so good. And he's like God. His like is arrested development like that guy can never shed his humor like that's just who he is totally, but, but it's so subtle in this good. He does such a great job with it and then Laura Linney who it is and I don't know. I think it's, I think it's Laura Linney. It's like MacBeth, like she is starting to take over the heroin, former wife and a husband thing is still, yes. Oh, good. And they're so Caridi ho so creep. The wife wife, especially suf- scares me. Sarah sometimes where I literally think she looks demonic. Yeah. Oh, yeah. They've done such a good job and then low redneck girl the. And so here's the thing. I really love that first season and I'll send man. I don't know if they're going to be able to keep up the momentum like sophomore slump I say, I think I might think that the second season is better than the I I agree with you because season one actually started to lose my interest about three quarters of the way through and I paid finish it, but I was feeling like I wasn't as into it. I haven't been really into season to love it. Other show that I watched, I had to kind of push through it because I'm a guy, but I will say the marvelous MRs Mazel is not what is that. So at one like everything at the Emmys, but you didn't watch the this year because you're. Whatever you're watching raise anatomy or some shit. I feel like I was busy. I feel like I was like in Iceland or something. We didn't talk about that this. Let's just bookmark that for second. Okay. But Mark, the marvels MRs may Ville is a period piece happens in New York in like the thirties or the forties. Maybe midge may Mazel is Jewish housewife, well, to do family. Her husband is like kind of like a normal businessman. But at night he goes and goes to the the gaslight in Greenwich Village and does like stand up. And then all of a sudden one day he leaves midge Mazel because he's cheating on her with his secretary midge Mazel like Connell loses. It gets drunk and goes down to like where he'd perform and like jumps on stage and just like starts ranting about like, how should he men are and like how terrible predicament she's in. And you know that woman who does the voice for a mom and. Only guy. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah. It was on mad TV. So she's, she's like the owner of of this club where she gets on stage and all of a sudden she's like, you are fucking hilarious, your comedian, we enter you a comedian. So then it's like the transformation of this like housewife into this amazing comedian, and it is. It's really, I think the reason why it was hard for me to get into. 'cause it's very female and empowering. Right. And albeit like a someone who's like all about that. It doesn't like hold me as much as like it held Sarah because like Sarah finished it like an day. Oh yeah. And like it took me a while, but then once it got going was like manage shows really good. And then the way it's shot, you're in Birdman where they would do like an entire scene with like never cutting like different Amera. They end that like like it's like six pages in like one shops as critical. So anyways, that show is phenomenal deserved like all those frequent Emmys at one lives. Other show that I really really liked. Oh, have you seen the center. I can't watch it. I tried just as the first two episodes were just so violent. I couldn't keep going do watch with Jessica Biel. Yeah, too. I really, but I'm like weird like that where I like making the murderer and what kind of stuff..

Wesley. So we're about to do some really interesting mental calisthenics. And and figure out how Omarosa feels like to us a type of black klansman. Yes, I'm going to go big. I okay. Okay. We're playing black jeopardy's. I'm excited back to you. Let klansman for five hundred. Alex gone. Well I mean, look, my inclination was to go. Hi. But I'm gonna go low, go obvious. Okay. We're talking about two stallworth what we met Omarosa America that Omarosa as Omarosa Nanan gold stallworth at so weird. I don't believe in coincidences. So this is your is this is interesting the stallworth coming from her first husband and here we are talking about one Ron stallworth. Fascinating. And the second thing I guess is they are both executing adventures kind of in the name of of black people kind of in the name of themselves partially out of kind of naievety about what they're actually doing and whether or not what they're doing can be effective at all or whether it even needs to be done. Right. I mean, that's a question. We have to ask ourselves, you know, they reached the abyss to pull out something and was it worthwhile. There's a scene toward the middle of black clansmen where. Where Ron basically says, listen, I don't think it's really possible that a guy like David do grow white supremacist could become president of the United States, and his boss is basically like, wow, sir, you you're really you to wake up class class that you lied. I mean, I guess we're supposed to believe that someone who wants to affect change by joining the police force in the first place is that naive about the, you know, the ideals of American democracy are has a belief system that is outdated, outmoded, but it's not ever clear where it comes from where he house imbued with any of that. You're making a great point though because one of the problems with both these projects at least for me is I don't know why either of these people is doing this in the first place like we don't really know from this book y. Omarosa really is working in the White House, like at least immerse stated goal of being the outreach coordinator for Africa, barricades in the Trump campaign and Trump administration, which we still don't know what that meant. She does. Explain it and we don't know. We literally shaking out. Picking up the phone? The other thing is like we don't know anything about Ron. We don't know where he came from. Why? Colorado Springs? Why is he so committed to stay on this police force? Eight, none of it is made clear. So both these people in their respective ways are kind of cypher figures, and there's no one really around who can crop rate or refute any of the testimonials of the accounts that are putting forth they might as well literally have been abducted by aliens and founding back like an own Rosa's book unhinged. She talks about how she advocated for Puerto Rico, all these various countries, various causes, and like maybe she did, but like, I'll never know like, I'll never know. And the same is true in Ron's book because this is a little bit of a spoiler but so is history. So I- decay. But at the end of the movie becomes apparent that for whatever reason, it's not really made clear to the moviegoer the investigation is terminated, and they're told. Destroy all the files related to this undercover sting that they've, they've been engaging in and they don't know why. And they're told budget cuts and they have to move on. But the point is though like the files were destroyed. So all we have to go on his runs account, and all we have to go on is gross account. Know to be fair to Omarosa phrases..

When people heard that I was on the story, they all wanted to know what kind of wellness I was. Was talking about, and then I would say it's a Quintas Petra story that that wellness would. Says some which some people call rich wellness and other people call white wellness. And I would Google what is white wellness. And here's what I found is that there is a Ryan white wellness center with you mean Ryan white from like the nineteen eighties, who was the emblem of aids is in your health last videos? Yup. But that's not the white wellness that we're talking now. That's just his name, right? The I seventy five pages. And if you make your way through it after the seventy five pages of Ryan, white wellness center comes my story. When I do go white bonus. Now I come up and this had happened, I don't know. But what how are we standing for this thing that we don't fully fully understand and when I would get overwhelmed like that in the story, I would just remember that I it wasn't really about big wellness and there are a few paragraphs in there. And that's what happens when you have an eight thousand word story that to me, it was a story about goop and what goop means and Gwyneth Paltrow and what she means. And that's always the story to me like, what is this person mean in our culture? And Gwyneth is so interesting to me because she's decided what she means in this culture, whereas she not really understand, and I actually believe she doesn't understand what she means in this culture. She knows she is something big and triggering and she does not understand why she invited meter house to show how normal it was. And I, I left any left absolutely. Sevice stated. By then us you can I just tell you the bar. I hang out with celebrities all the time I'm in. They're nice houses. I leave and my rental car and I go back to a hotel that's on the times budget. And I feel sad. It's funny because when you put it that way, the sadness is somewhat more professional and care. But in the in the piece though you two seem like like a glorified woman, like getting closer to the source of something that people aspire to get close to and having kind of allergic reaction to it. I don't know if it was allergic. I mean, I think that the reason I always wanted to do the story it was because in my stories, you know, there's a lot of controversy about whether or not you should ever use a first person. And the only time I really use a first person, even though I'm very specific in my first person is when I believe that I'm representing the reader like the glorified woman. That's what you mean writing that. I'm like standing in for a lot of women, and I feel comfortable doing that because because we're all their beneath her. Her in the way she exits in our society the way she's the lifer of something and the way women like her have come to be emblematic of some unattainable ideal. And so what does it mean to strive towards that?.

"Of two Golden Globes, and now nominated for fourteen EMMY awards, including outstanding comedy series and outstanding, lead actress and a comedy series where Rachel Brosnahan's performance as midge Mazel, open your heart to the show that Vanity Fair calls infectiously triumphant and a relentlessly charming comedy, considerate marvelous in all categories. Before we get started on this week's episode of little Goldman, I'm here with Richard Lawson. Hi, Richard below emergency session of a minutes. After we finished recording this week's episode, the academy announced these huge changes to the way that the Oscars are going to work both in this coming year. And then in the future, Richard, I reconvened to talk about this. I'm just gonna read what's in the tweet, which assists far as I can tell most of the information that we have. There's going to be a new Oscar category designed around achievement and popular film. We don't know what that means beyond that. Putting in twenty twenty. They will. The Oscars will air a little bit earlier. It'll be February ninth, whereas they've usually been at the end of February or sometimes early March, and then they are planning a quote more globally accessible, three hour telecast which according to other reports will involve them giving out some awards during commercial breaks and then airing them later on in an edited format something it's all a little bit vague, Richard. What was your initial reaction to this news? Well, multifaceted I hated when the Tonys did it, and I in terms of not airing certain categories technical categories like these are people who work very hard and this is they're, they're asking for one moment, you know, sort of in the spotlight and the academy now seems to be following the American theatre wing in denying them that moment. You know, even if they show it later, and I think that's a shame. Obviously, we, we'll get into the new category thing which has potential for ruined and you know, and I have some theories about why they're doing it this year. But I, I think for our purposes, like I'm really curious to see what shortening the season is gonna look like, and what kind of almost. Comic effect that has what sort of like in terms of momentum, because I find, you know, we, we covered this pretty exhaustively, but so maybe it's just my experience, but I find that you know, it's a long wait. Like there's kind of an a desert between Golden Globes and the end of February for the Oscars. So maybe it'll kind of make the word season feel and the Oscars themselves feel that much more exciting. Yeah, I think they definitely have gotten a sense that their momentum gets stolen by the Golden Globes. The saga words are critics choice awards the Baptist, which a lot of which happen in mid February. And I mean for us, we know we're not having to dress up and go to all these things. We're following it and we're all kind of exhausted by the time the Oscars roll around. So I see the argument for that. And I think a lot of people have set a shorter season when serve them better in the future. The main downside I can see for this is for smaller movies that get nominated like they, they sent out the screeners by the time of Christmas break of voters, have time to catch up on what they wanna nominate, assuming they're not gonna move up the nominations date beyond much early January, that leaves them only a month to kind of catch up on what got nominated. So. Say that you haven't seen a more which gets a surprise was picture nomination. Then you've got the screener, or do you think voters are going to have time to catch up on all this stuff? The way they might have. I mean, we'll see. I mean, I think that it it certainly adds a sense of urgency to the proceedings. When you know in even, you know, two weeks makes a big deal. And last year it was longer. Is there March because of the Olympics? You know, maybe that sense of urgency will alive and everything, but maybe like you said, it will mean that that much more doesn't get. It's kind of do consideration because there just isn't time. Yeah, and I think that would be a real loss that would dovetail kind of grossly with this idea of introducing a popular film category. Okay..
