"Over it, and I would like to move on, please. Thank you. Thank you. Okay, we shall move on. We do want to spend a little bit of this episode talking about this wonderful HBO series for the last of us. Consider this your official warning for spoilers. If you are not caught up on the last of a series on HBO, you might want to not listen to the next segment of the show. Because we're going to talk about how we feel about it and if you've played the games, we're spoiling nothing for you, but if you plan to watch the show, this I think is the first episode where they have departed from where the narrative at was in the game and to what they decided to do in the show. So you have officially been warned, spoiler warning, done, who cried. The whole, almost the whole episode. Oh my gosh. This episode was so good, but also we didn't talk about episode two 'cause it was last week, but I also liked episode two, but I thought online it was a little divisive. I loved divisive. I was just gonna give a shout out to the beginning of episode two where they have that, were they in Indonesia? Was that yeah, Jakarta? Okay, yeah, that was, I love how they started the series, right? That interview on stage. And then they had that little segment at the beginning of the second episode. I just love how they're also rooting this in as much science as possible 'cause it is kind of a terrifying thought when you watch it. You're like, oh crap, they're not just pulling this stuff out of their ass. And if you watch every episode until the very end, you know, they go into you again, like the research they've done. And the things they took into consideration. And it was eerie, that part of it was eerie, but anyway, yeah, let's just talk about episode three 'cause I feel like that's the one that I have the most say about. I think that was one and again, I don't watch a lot of TV, so take my opinion on the green of salt, but I think the elbow is one of the best episodes of TV I've seen. That was just from beginning, middle to end. It was beautiful. And there's part of me that's like, okay, so wait, so we just took an entire episode and told a story between a love story between two men and at first I'm like, how does this build upon the series? Like how does this benefit the story between Joel and Ellie? And then the more I thought about it, I was like, it's world building is what it is. And it really sets the tone for and it gives you a different perspective of two survivors and what the world was like for them to live in. And so when Joel does get to Bill and Frank's house and they are gone and there is that note there, us knowing what they went through and Joel reading that note and now kind of feeling like, you know, they want to be protect test, test is no longer here. All I have is Ellie. I really like, I think how that impacted him as a character because obviously that's not how it went down in the game. So anyway, that's like my TLDR thoughts. And I'd love to hear your guys as well, but I just loved it. It was just such a beautiful story. It's a beautiful episode. So I want to give a big shout out to not that they're listening or will ever listen to this podcast. But to Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett, the two lead actors in this episode, playing Bill and Frank. We already knew that Nick Offerman was going to be playing Bill, but I think Murray Bartlett's role as Frank was in the real turn for me in a very positive way because obviously in the games we never get to meet Frank for all we know Frank is a giant a hole and Bill actually hates him and I think that these two actors play this episode so wonderfully and it saddens me that there are people out there who are making it their mission to take this episode down for whatever reason they've decided to cook up in their mind, whether they think it's a ploy at positive LGBTQ representation, whether they think it's some kind of woke agenda, even though the kind of hilarity of, as you mentioned, this was in the original game, if you found it, they had this relationship. If you missed it, that's on you, bro but it's saddens me that what I think is such a beautiful love story is being taken to task by people who are just mad about it. And I'm like, are you mad because you don't have a Frank in your life and a bill in your life? Is that what you're mad about? Because yeah. That was my takeaway when I was sobbing at the end of the episode and they were like, it was more like happy tears, I think, than sad tears. 'cause I think when I first started seeing people tweet about like, oh my gosh, episode three made me cry. I was like, oh no, does something really tragic and gross happen? Like, I'm worried, and then instead it was, don't we all wish we could have that ended. It reminded me of how hard I cried at the end of the notebook of all fucking things. This is like, they were like holding each other at the end. Of a life well lived in somebody that you care about and you don't want to go without them. And so they go together. And I'm just like, oh my God. It was awful. And great at the same time. It was. And just for some context, what we know about Frank from the game is that he was, I think, bitten by a bunch of infected. And on his way back instead of going to bills, he hung himself, and you eventually do find his corpse and well, I guess a suicide note was what you would call it. And in that note, he does say how he hates bill's guts and he didn't like the way he managed the town. And that is all we know about the bill and Frank relationship. But yes, like bill does call Frank his partner. And if you want to be like, oh, you know what he meant when he said partner? Why are these people acting so oblivious and Ellie is gay? Like, that's the thing. It was like, oh, two game Ellie is gay. And she's like, she's the main character here. I don't know. People are just fucking weird. Internet was a mistake. I mean, criticisms aside whether or not you like that gay people survive the apocalypse. It is such an incredible love story. Granted, it has some really, really great commentary in contrast to Joel and Tess's relationship and the fact that he in front of Bill is not even able to bring himself to acknowledge her as his partner. Assumably lost the mother of his child, he's lost his child like Lake loss is hard for Joel. And so attaching himself to people is clearly not something he's interested in doing. But regardless, he is attached to tests, right? And Bill picks up on that, of course, Joel calls out, oh, these are your lives. You and Frank are a unit. You have somebody you care about too. They're very much the same, right? They draw parallels between the two characters. As soon as they meet, and it's a really hilarious scene, they're just full of tension and not trusting each other fully, but are clearly coming from the same place. They want to protect what they've reluctantly come to love and cherish. And I think one of the best moments for me is when you see at the end of the episode when Ellie and Joel come to the house and Ellie finds the note and she's reading through it and she gets to the part where Bill is referencing use whatever you can find here to protect Tess. He writes the right so name down in Ellie doesn't read it out loud. You just see Joel reading it when he takes the letter from her. And he becomes so overwhelmed with the motion. This is like the first time since we saw the death of Sarah that we've seen him that emotional. And he has to leave the house.

"It is 8 11. There's a new HBO drama debuting Sunday Night. It focuses on a post apocalyptic U.S.. It's called the last of us, and it's based on a video game that has sold more than 20 million copies earning widespread critical acclaim. Vulture critic Jen chaney joined WTO's Mark Lewis earlier on Skype with details. While it's a very narratively driven video game, so I think it is sort of well suited to be adapted into a television series. But I think a challenge for the last of us is that we've seen so many post apocalyptic shows and films and books over the past say ten to 15 years that it's hard to tell a story like this and make it feel like something entirely new and fresh. That being said, I think this is a really, really well done series. The sort of crisis that has happened is that there's been a fungal virus that has wiped out much of the world's population and it follows two people, one of whom is a teenage girl played by Bella Ramsey, who was on Game of Thrones, who seems to be immune and may offer a way to make a vaccine. And so it's really about her journey alongside this man played by Pedro Pascal as they try to see if she is going to be able to provide a vaccine. It's really, really compelling. Interesting. Do you think producers can satisfy both audiences here, the many who have enjoyed the game, as well as those who've never seen it? I mean, I'm not a gamer, but I do think so. I think they follow the general arc of the game pretty closely, but there are some diversions. For example, the third episode focuses entirely on two men played by Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett. It's a total sidebar episode that's just beautifully beautifully done. So there is some new stuff here in addition to what people may recognize from the game. Debuting on Netflix today is the documentary series breakpoint, and this takes us behind the scenes of professional tennis, tell us about this. So this is from the same production team that did the series Formula One drive to survive, which really got a lot of people who weren't into Formula One racing very interested in it. And they kind of applied the same formula to tennis. I'm already a pretty big tennis fan. So this is really following some of the players during the 2022 circuit, a lot of the players who are expected to be sort of the next generation coming up after Serena Williams and Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer. And as a tennis fan, I thought it was really great. I love learning more about some of the players that aren't as well known and the access is amazing and the way they film the matches is amazing. So if you're into tennis at all, you will probably appreciate this. And that's vulture critic Jen Cheney with us on Skype.

She's raising money for the wilderness society to protect endangered animals.

And finally, in consecutive runs, a single mother of three has run 233 half marathons in a row and shows no sign of stopping, Welsh runner, Helen, age 42, has beaten her own Guinness World Record of a 111 consecutive half marathons. She gets up at 4 a.m. each day to fit them in before she starts work as a cleaner. She started running a couple years back after separating from a difficult marriage and hasn't stopped yet.

"But I do also appreciate the fact that this was kind of a wholly original different sprung from obviously from current events, but not directly based on something true, whereas these other shows, not so much, although I did really, really like the dropout. And I enjoyed Pam and Tommy to a point. Yeah, I thought the dropout was excellent. I think I've actually watched the drop out all the way through twice. But that's partly because I'm like an Elizabeth Holmes obsessive. But I did think that was excellent. I think the white lotus is like as a holistic thing kind of has problems, but is full of great performances and great scenes if I can say it that way. Dope sick I thought was a little heavy handed at times, but again, full of performances that I respected. So I have no quarrel with that. Inventing Anna, I kind of thought was I watched it and forgot it, but same. So for the lead actress in the limited or anthology series or movie, we've got Toni Collette for the staircase. Julia Garner for inventing Anna, Lily James for Pam and Tommy, Sarah Paulson for impeachment, American crime story, Margaret qualley, for made and Amanda Seyfried for the dropout. This is a pretty interesting lineup and pretty strong lineup, I think. And full of stars. Yes, very starring. We're sort of going back to that thing where like, well, sure, Toni Collette, who's a big movie star, and Amanda Seyfried, who's a big movie star. You know, you have some of these performances that I like more than others. I do not like that Sarah Paulson performance in American crime story. I just think it was silly. But I love the Margaret qualley performance in maid and there's a little bit of recognition for maid kicking around that's still on Netflix. I really recommend it if you haven't watched it. I am delighted that just a little bit of recognition for what was one of the shows that really kind of blew me away this year. So lots of good stuff in that category. Yeah. And in the lead actor category, we've got Colin Firth for the staircase, Andrew Garfield for under the banner of heaven, Oscar Isaac for scenes from a marriage. Michael Keaton for dope sick, himesh Patel, for station 11, and Sebastian Stan for Pam and Tommy. I think it's worth mentioning that station 11 was a hugely admired show critically by a lot of our colleagues. And I think the places where it was recognized like this category for himesh Patel, who's kind of the only non big movie star person in this category when you're like, oh, Oscar Isaac, Andrew Garfield, and so forth and so forth. Yeah. So for outstanding supporting actor, we've got from the white lotus. So again, this category is another we got a bunch of the same shows going on here. So from the white lotus, we have Murray Bartlett, Jake lacy, and Steve zahn, and from dope sick, we have will poulter, Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael stuhlbarg. Also, Seth Rogen for Pam and Tommy. That Seth Rogen performance is a really interesting one to me. I kind of liked it myself. He was kind of playing against type. He's basically the villain, but a villain who kind of thinks he's the hero or at least not a villain. And that? Yeah. And to clarify, he's playing the guy who basically stole the sex tapes of Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee. And our responsible for the world seeing it basically. Those white lotus nominations, Murray Bartlett, is wonderful on that show. And I also think Jake lacy, who had been kind of playing a lot of nice guys, came into this and plays

"Accords was rolled onto the plane in the premier. Take start at rolling on twitter. People started saying who was dead. People were talking about whether or not. This is a satire. Whether or not it's a self-aware take-down of colonialism or is it actually just a product of colonialism itself so white lotus. What are your feelings about it. Can i just say that. I hate that binary thinking i don't like binary put me down rocking binary potus which is to say i watched that show on in one fell swoop because i had the screeners. 'cause i'm really important because i'm a tv critic and the show is actually not telling you to watch it as a satire right like there are certain satirical notes when you see the first few episode you meet some characters who feel like caricatures and then mike why is he always says this affection kind of arises right and you start to see for instance tanya mcleod ten for coolidge est character as someone with an inner life and so on and so forth and so i just got a little frustrated when maybe it's not frustration. I'm certainly interested in the idea of this shows matter relationship to colonialism. But i think it's kind of like a show at the end of the day and it's not supposed informing this takedown action or mechanism or appraising of the white liberal imagination. I think it's just like a little bit smarter than people are. Maybe diluting it to be online. But that's just my thought It's also to like i guess. The suspense of the show is the sense that all the characters will probably interact in one way or another and so i found myself kind of guessing like oh how will jennifer coolidge. And this kid. Interact or what you're kind of guessing like how these Storylines will intertwined. And i feel like that's more were. My head is at than actually met a narrative. Just because these people are so unpredictably in some cases self absorbed but also occasionally showing. Or whatever that i'm predicting where the explosions will happen. More than i'm having really anything smarter to say about it so it's more like a reality show you know. I'm i'm more thinking like. How will these people like blow up each other. I mean the connection to a reality show is one of the important pieces of the puzzle mostly because mike white loves survivor and has been on it and he brings it up like it's just i ask. Every time he does. He famously came in second on. The david versus goliath season to nick and i found the series almost sort of like he was just writing survivor. You know he wrote it in a yeah. It was him picking like a tropical location and he just loves characters. The one thing. I love about mike white's shows is that like he likes wacky. Sort of like you said almost satirical characters that sort of reveal themselves like the heart behind them even the awful characters towards the end. And i sort of feel like our mind was representation for himself and him sort of like battling with jake. Lacy character. Shane the entire time was sort of him replicating his survivor time and like shane. Winning at the end was sort of like nick beating him. But that's sad. I really liked this gay character in it. I thought that he was really interesting. And something we hadn't seen sort of lake. Murray bartlett getting to play a gay breaking bad. But i will say that i'm not worried about the whole like is it satirizing or like taking down white people because too many people expect shows with white cast to do that now as if every white creator needs to be invested in creating a show that is going to skewer whiteness in general i mean just what succession everyone as a show. I found a little bit wanting. I enjoyed the show. But if you even watch it as just a show. I feel like every beat in every episode in every story was eighty percent predictable. That's really interesting. I have been thinking of the white lotus. As a very ornate experiment and mike white serve because he's a really fascinating creator because this is someone who likes school of rock dawson's creek. He has made some of the most mainstream of mainstream television and film and people like at the same time. Don't really know who he is. People who aren't pop culture obsesses and then he's made shows like enlightened which i mean bring it back on it. It's the turn assange. It's the perfect time that's a show. Where like part of the reason why it was cancelled was that people didn't really watch it and so i think the white lotus is ending up ensnared even in this strange attention economy were mike wipes his shows or his films like that are much more subtle or cambier feel more art house are now getting an attention that they weren't maybe necessarily created for this so clearly an idea that he had. Hbo approached him. he wrote it. He directed all the episodes shot. It in one location four seasons in hawaii and it has both the fortune in the misfortune of coming out during a time where people there paris social relationships to television is off the charts. Because that's kind of all they've been doing for a year and a half like i've been watching people sort of get really angry at these characters. Paula is an example of someone. People aren't talking roth while now not politics. Oh our first of all you know you know. I watched so much tv. That i'm like what i watch it. I just be like oh you know. Paula was over there talking to connie britton. I remember care to by the actor's name first name well by the way this show is like a prime example of await. That's the characters name like when you said that jennifer is character named tanya. I'm like are you sure. That's it is tanya. Wow i mean going back to big little lies. I feel like know has the cast name right and renova. Renata and reese witherspoon. yeah. I love that slippage. You know like mike white really understands white women. He just picks women that people already have so much like spiritual investment in. And when you're watching tanya you're like but that's also jennifer jennifer heading out something like a revenge fantasy for the way that she's been sequestered by hollywood and the past thirty years like i'm read so into it. You know and he knows that he has me right. I was going to say. I want to know. If molly shannon has some residual rage which i believe is channel pretty well through this character. I wouldn't say it's perfect casting. There are pro actresses who do better the thing of like. Oh i'm evil. I'm leaning in getting in your face but how bad a personnel. But molly shannon just has a very inherent quietness. That makes the character a little bit more interesting. Even though i don't know if i love the casting anyway. I adore molly shannon but i agree. I did not like her in that role. It's sort of didn't jive with who i felt. His mother was supposed to be based on how he was acting but What were you saying about paula. Well so paula is. Someone who read hearing is maybe like too strong of a term to use but people became really attached to her when they were watching the first episodes because she felt like a surrogate for the viewer one because she was non white too because she seemed to be not as wealthy as mossbacher family. Who's kinda like a cross between like goop and the guy who lady. Ceo britain does she. Was sarah sandberg asfaw like theories that steve zahn was going to die. Shell standards knows.

"And that's when i kinda loved about that any it doesn't it doesn't let her have like it. Sets it up to have it to be like. Oh you know strong independent woman power and in the end. She's just like never mind. I'll just off. They married to this rich man who murdered someone. Although i what do you think she knows he committed that that. I guess it's not technically murder because he gets away with it but Manslaughter would be the term. The the know it's not really We don't really know if she knows he did or not. There's a part of me that thinks she doesn't know but department thinks she does know which makes the ending like ten times. I think she does. I think it's it's ten times darker i think that's ending that you're talking about my wife and i watched it together. And she pointed out to me. Like i think the next day or something after it aired like the last thing one of the last things that rachel says to shane at their dinner is the armone character walks by in the background and shane make some quick or something and she's like. Will you just leave that. Poor man alone. Like that night ends with with shane murdering him and then rachel going back to him after that which is just yet man like talking about dark but My question to her now opposite to you. Do you think that diesel rachel. Shane continued their honeymoon onto. Tahiti has planned act in the wake of f. murder. I do think they continue. That and i think they continued their life and they ended up having shitty kids and they were. They ended up sleeping in separate bedrooms in some huge house and they stayed married all the way into the future. She took. She took the easy way out. I genuinely think that's what happened here and again. I don't think that's a good thing. But i love the show for having the guts to be like what we're gonna do this. We're going to end. We're we're not gonna give you the happy ending that you want. And yeah sometimes that can backfire. And sometimes i get work in. And here i think it really worked. I also wanted to give a shed out to just the cast across the board was so good especially murray bartlett. Who plays armand who. I've never even heard of before. But he was so good. I wanna see him like everything now because he was so good here. Yeah yeah totally agree. And i'd never seen him in anything either. See i feel like this might be one of the last chances. We have to really talk about this for season. 'cause i know they greenland it for a second season. Peter and i talked about that on a previous episode of the show. So maybe we'll talk about season to a little bit more. Indepth once that gets round to airing in a year or two or whenever But the the quin plotline. What did you think about that. How how that How that ended. I don't know what to make of that. Honestly i like the plot line but even my wife was like. Is this like a dream because it shows like you know. He runs away from the airport at the end that he gets on the whatever. It is the new thing you can do. And it's like well. How is he like living their money. He's sixteen years. Like i guess it's possible. He managed to pull it off. But a part of me wonders. If that's like some sort of fancy but the show doesn't really have any other scenes like that where characters have elaborate fantasies. So you kinda cheat. So i guess it really is happening but again. I don't know how at the weird thing because i feel. The show is like pretty realistic about the logistics of of how things work until you get to that moment like i think i heard somebody say there's no way that steve zahn and the rest of the family members would have allowed that plane to take off without the kid on it and like i there's a part of me that kind of is like i don't wanna get that pedantic about you know that that nit picky about stuff like i understand that a storyteller can take some liberties to hit an emotional beat or whatever and like you kind of have to be okay without a certain point at as an audience but at the same time like the show. This is the the only instance. I think that. The show kind of took a swing. That was quite that big in terms of logic leap. That that i didn't really think about is this a fantasy but But that almost makes more sense to me than him getting away with it because like what you're saying like you know he he's sixteen the affording this and all that so yeah men that i loved the way. The show looks those shots of just like the the water in the sunsets in the us. It's just a gorgeous show on the music was so weird anxiety inducing. There's just so much. I really love the show and i am. I look this up. The they shot an actual resort. And i think it costs like what the cheapest room they're like. There's different tiers of rooms. I looked up. Just for the hell of and i think like the cheapest room. This is the cheapest room for one. Night is five thousand dollars and that's just one night. Okay so that's the cheapest cell so that must have changed because my wife and i stayed at that hotel for one night during our honeymoon and we went to hawaii for. I wanna say it was maybe four or five days or something like that for honeymoon and we're just like man. Let's let's go all out celebrating. I wanna stay at a really nice place and we saw the price and we're like all right so let's do one night at this place And it was not anywhere near five thousand dollars. So because i absolutely would not have been able to afford that. So that was in twenty fourteen so things very welcome of they could've upgraded substantially since then but But yet the so. That was that was kind of a cool thing to be like. Oh yeah. I remember like eating breakfast right there were. They're always remember murder here. Yeah exactly All right so then. Let's see any other final thoughts about white lotus any other aspects. You wanted to touch on now. I just i like over on..

"Right. Welcome back it is time for the random channel that moment of the week when we talk about some of the random items that were occupying attention or causing some buzz in the virtual geekwire newsroom. It's todd bishop. I'm here with john. Cook requires co founder and laurel deepen our geekwire. Twenty twenty one. Dow jones news fund intern. So we thought we talk about some of the shows or podcasts. Things that we've been watching or listening to lately that have really struck a chord world. You wanna start sure. So i had seen on my twitter feed of discourse about the show on. Hbo called the white lotus and the tweets. That convinced me to watch. It was when they said it is just as good as succession in succession is one of my favorite shows that i've seen in a really long time so i was like well. I'd just absolutely have to watch this show. I love succession. And i just saw promo on. Hbo that it's coming back for a third days. Yes in the promo let fantastic. So as the media mogul says to son. I'm going to like grind. Your bones make read out of and the son like us no retort. He tries to he tries to respond. Like i'm gonna do this to you. Daddy and it sounds really meek but anyway secession was the one that was loosely. Based on the murdoch's yes right. Yes it's all media moguls and infighting and so so the white lotus. Yes you know. I hate to say it but it is not as good as succession but i will say it has held my attention. There's going to be six episodes. Five have been released. So i've watched all five It's basically about this resort in hawaii. It follows the lives of you. Know these people in this week and you know. They're just all very very unlikable people that's very much like succession. Yes but i do like the characters in succession more than i liked the characters on white lotus. I will say okay well. I've seen it advertised a lot. I i been thinking about it. Give it a shot. it's okay everyone just makes me kind of nervous like it's supposed to be funny but for some reason it's presented in such a way that is just like nerve wracking which services it on. Hbo mac hbo. Max that's my problem like everything's on something else. There was back in the day. We were all looking for all a cart. We're like oh. Yeah we're gonna cut cable bill and a half i swear to god i'm paying twice as much. It's so much it's ridiculous. It's totally ridiculous. Yes all right okay. White lotus good one all right. Well i don't have. Hbo max were no. Don't do that that's can you multiple users anyway. Your family your family. What's yours. So i got tipped off to a new podcast That just sounded wonderful to me as many of you now. I'm kind of a sports nut. And so the podcast is called the etch. Now it's all about sport that i don't pay that much attention to baseball but the underlying premise of it is so interesting. It's the story of the houston astros and how horrible they were back in the early part of the two thousand ten's they're losing over one hundred games and this sports illustrated reporter did a story like analyzing the got to embed himself with the team and did a story. I think that year And a cover story that said welcome to your world champions 2017 houston astros and he kinda got laughed off. The you know laughed out of the ballpark away. The houston astros suck well. This is the team that ended up winning the world series in twenty seventeen. Now the reason. I really like this and it was recommended by a local technology executive who who i very much respect The reason i really liked it why he pointed out to me was because there's this great journalistic element to it that this sports illustrated reporter really struggles with his story. After the fact because those who follow sports now that the houston astros was the team that even though they won the world series with this stacked lineup they were cheating the whole time through the system of banging a drum basically stealing signals and they would bang the drama certain way if it was an off speed pitch and i don't think they would bang the drum if it was a fastball and so these guys were just hammering the ball out of the park and just destroying teams and so the edge is the story of this journalist. Kind of coming to terms with is reporting that he missed this big story that was right in front of them and and kind of figuring out. Why but i'll just give a little tease on the first episode. It's a starts out in such an unpredictable and interesting way. This reporter sports illustrated reporter goes back. He doesn't start with the astros he doesn't start out with. The management team doesn't start with his own perspective. He starts it with a pitcher for the toronto blue jays who faced off against this lineup and was like a mid level mid tier pitcher and he got shelled by the astros in game and after that game the manager came in and and send them down to the minor leagues and then eventually got like transferred over to the league in japan and it's career was over because of their cheating or well struck out three of the players. Maybe his career would have been different but like it. It's just such an interesting way to tell a story so the edge. The story of the houston astros in their cheating. Scandal is are well the one that i'm going to talk about this podcast. Host does not need my help promoting her work. But i do wanna give a shout out to sway. The new york tall right has with cara swisher. And the reason is. And i will say i've kind of been on kara overload. Over the years. I listened to pivot her. Podcast scott galloway. Kara swisher longtime technology journalist Founder of recode co-founder with.

Not just for the speech that she had on the boat while scattering hormones ashes but also twitchy lay down in bed and through the ashes go. I also want to commend. Mike white for like really analyzing like whiteness. Liberal privilege In this series such an interesting way. Because it's like natasha rothwell honorable we should i. Should i should be playing like a mammy character right but she knows that this is what this woman was. But she's leaning into because she wants to escape This life that she's at it's such a great nuanced portrayal from both of them and it's amazing and other thing. Murray bartlett is giving me a gay character. I've never seen on tv before. He's giving me anti hero. He's giving me breaking bad. He's giving me rooming lucas gauge in his office. I want more white lotus seasons with like him still running the white lotus and like continuing to fall apart with new guests. I got you. You want like i ryan murphy situation.

"White has a real year for the way that People who have rarely encountered actual hardship relates to the world that seen as a great example of it so far. This series is completely fun. Like there's i can't imagine a sort of more delightful way to spend time than watching these jerks Sort of exercise their jerky nece at each other and at the world and believe themselves to be essentially good people all revealing at every turn That they are disasters of human beings. I know that that has unlimited returns. Necessarily but it's only a six episode series. So i expect that it will continue to be extremely delightful To watch these chumps get shocked okay. A limited series with perhaps not unlimited returns dana. Would you make these jerks and paradise. I mean different response from dan but similarly positive like i really like the show. I think it's beautifully written and it is one of those shows where the writing is really what makes it. The performances are all excellent to and the the whole sort of setting is beautiful. Obviously the idea of setting this this sort of nasty morally rotten universe in this idyllic Places is a great contrast The things that pop to mind for me and watching this fawlty towers right sort of it's sort of a very twisted version of the you know the basil fawlty story with that australian actor that we heard Murray bartlett as as the john cleese character sort of you know. It's the comedy of errors everything that can go wrong in the hospitality industry but then it starts to have this side of Of of a book. By one of your favorite author.

I expect it to But it's gonna be we don't have a long Oh my gosh. Just pay now. Let's start with some some some Premiers that we have now. This is a mini series. So these are usually one and done about six episodes on hbo. This new show called Miniseries called the white lotus and anytime. Hbo does mini series. They usually pack it with some beloved performers It's a way to get like the list to commit to tv. Yes because then you only have those they okay we only got six eight episodes sit-ups whatever it's done so the white lotus on. Hbo basically means it. Premieres on the premier channel. But you can also watch it on hbo mac. So if you have the. I feel like there's two things that people get confused about the prime situation and hbo versus hbo. Max so that is happening. Hey people hbo. Max has all hbo plus. They called an hbo. Plus i think it would sink in a little better well. The thing is every time i think about. Hbo max. I think that it's a combination of hbo cinemax. But you don't obviously i own style tax properties. Hbo max it is the max. Cinemax is the same maximum. Hbo mac so you know there's a lot happening but anyway these miniseries usually attract Some premier talent. I am always excited when i see a certain someone as you are. Connie britton Coming in.

Mrs coming to us from mike white. What a name. And just it's just plain on mike white and the thing is if you look mike white.

I mean they're making more people there but like few people are as ready to watch shows set in the nineteenth century on boats. As i am. It's incredible i mean. I don't know we never really did a follow up because i think longtime fans and grandma readers know your prevailing. He's a statement which is at the is dope the frozen sea. It's a whole other animal right. It's dope. Mrs honestly still up for debate because in the terror it's not so hot rail at in north water. It doesn't look like those guys are having a great time. I mean so. It's as if though dummies at bbc. Amc plus like they. They gathered together their creative brain. Trust you know like in a madman style room. They locked the door and they were like gentlemen. We have a new target a target of one and they pulled the cloth that was covering the easel. And there's just the astill from the gif of you playing air guitar you know and it was just like then and then they brought in some supplementary supplementary materials they brought in seized. Oh they brought in everything you ever said publicly about taboo. They brought in every text. You sent me when. I stopped watching taboo which was literally like eighteen lines into the taboo pilot one hundred percent. They said they brought in the head that antarctica show that. Fuck yeah yes yes.

What is the tesla battery. Pack that will allow this show to flourish rave coral. Exactly just like who is the. Mvp of chris's super he go. It is friend of the watch called farrell. He he is in this show. It looks like he is completely going for it. And jack o'connell plays the ship's surgeon. I don't think we jack o'connell from mc mafia. So that's james something jack jack. O'connell is like he was in forty seven or so. I can't remember what the name of the ira movie he was in right. Here's angelina jolie movie. I'm really sorry.

Chris a disgraced surgeon. That's even better. I'm i'm personally willing to sacrifice my body for redemption ark. What is the preferred word to be placed before surgeon in a sentence. Is it neuro. Is it highly respected. Or is it disgraced and i think if you're watching television show on the couch of chris. Ryan is the ladder a competent surgeon. You want a guy who's got the shakes reason.

Which would you prefer my favorite part of the trailer. And it's it's great. The trailer is great and the trailers great in the same way. Like spinal tap is great. Because you're like we get it and then they're like.
