Halo TV show will air in 2022, alongside Star Trek
"So viacomcbs held its big investor presentation paramount plus which is rebranded and rebooted version of an existing service called. Cbs all access. What did we get yesterday yesterday. There was this three. Plus our event designed to unveil the scope of paramount plus says this revamped version of cbs. All access in a kind of inauspicious. Start this event that was supposed to talk about how the company is going to be really competitive and streaming ended up starting half an hour late because they were having problems streaming so that wasn't a great place to start but generally the main focus last night was squarely on programming all the titles that they're going to be creating the originals the exclusives movies and shows that they're going to be leading into sort of cbs's stable of networks and brands and intellectual property in order to hopefully they hope draw new subscribers to service that has been around almost since the very beginning of services like this. Yeah let's take into that. Because cbs all access has largely been known for shows like star trek discovery and well star trek card and star trek. Lower deck's star trek. What else are we gave from paramount. Plus it how does it differ from. Was he this. All access had been about the last two years. Generally i would say that. The basic proposition of paramount plus is pretty similar to cbs. All access some of the things that make. Cbs all access a little bit. Different from other streaming services is baked into ciba's access. You get a live feed of Your local cbs channel most streaming on demand streaming services. Don't have both. I kind of live and on demand element integrated within them. That doesn't really change paramount. Plus the things that are going to be changing. Like i said it's really about how they're trying to expand people's concept of what's this entire company a includes and so what that is that they're going to be making a lot more originals based on things from comedy central and tv from nickelodeon there's going to be a rugrats boot and an entire new studio dedicated to avatar the last air bender Universe shows in shorts and movies and they're going to be leading really hard into the paramount. Pictures movie studio that the company also owns. They're going to be reviving some franchises from that movie studios past and they're also going to be bringing a few of paramount pictures new theatrical movies to permit plus to stream earlier than would be normal. This is nothing like hbo. Max streaming every single warner brothers. New movie the same day as it hit theaters but subscribers to promote plus a will have the opportunity to stream movies like quietly to the new mission impossible mission impossible. I think at seven on the of subscribers will be able to stream that basically a month and a half after those movies hit theaters. So for example quiet place equal you'll be able to stream in november. That's not as aggressive as as some other services but it does change the proposition. Little bet from what people were used to. Cvs all access right and so. Let's get some details. How what is the service actually launched and home was the cost and did it does it differ from. What's he has. All access was charging. Yeah well this is something. I was kind of surprised that this is going to be such a confusing transition. What's happening is in one week on march fourth they will essentially replace. Cbs all accesses premium tier with paramount plus in a launch on the fourth in the us and across countries some countries in latin america as a ten dollar a month subscription. And that gives you everything on the service. Add freight then in june going to widen paramount plus to be sickly launched a cheaper ad-supported limited tier. That's five dollars month so that's comparable with similar tier that's already on. Cbs all access. So both of the services have these kind of like cheaper ad-supported tears and premium more expensive inclusive tears but ammo plus is going to be rolling them out in. This staggered way which is going to create some confusion for current subscribers and also perspective subscribers know. There's going to be period of a few months where there's going to be multiple apps that have the cbs name in them was have the paramount name in them. And it's going to be hard. It's not as simple proposition for consumers to figure out what they wanna get and where they can actually get it with all those moving parts happening at once so we saw out some difficulty with. Hbo max when hbo max launched last year when they had not only at hbo max as an app out in the market but hbo go and hbo now still existed as made that transition. That was a really bumpy road for them for a while. Because of consumer confusion now add in the element that there is not only just like. Hey there's one subscription it's one price none of that change now. Add in the fact that you've got to tears which launches at one time one of which doesn't launch until another time and those things have different. They unlock different. So it does seem like it's setting up a really a really bumpy transition for them to

Childrens book helps to discuss the environment with children
"We begin briefly with a message from the moon from a dog. One you know. Yes i dog on the moon. A friend of johnson. Greens of blueprint fame. I orchestra and a graphic book called the carbon neutral adventures. The indefatigable enviro teens and it is a mixture of fun in fact. Isn't it dog. yes. I wanted to talk not just about what climate change is because i think a lot of people understand that over and this is a book for ten to fourteen year old so i did want to explain what climate changes but almost more importantly i wanted to talk about. Why climate changes and what happened. How it happened and why it's still going on and why it's so hard to do something about it because that if you think about it logically which clearly a lot of people. It doesn't make any sense at all. No you actually summit up marvelously on page one hundred eighty and you say in fact if you imagine the person talking to you. This dog is in fact. A sort of modern version of the mad towed in a speedboat saying the planet is being ruined so wealthy adults can have second jetski. I don't know whether to be scared or sad or angry or something else. I just wanted to the all. Does that sort of sum it up. Yes it does because we talk a lot about the legacy that we're leaving young people and we're very apologetic and for all the grades in the world but we do talk about how they're going to have to fix it and that's just simply outrageous. Not only that we've trashed the planet so badly but also that we're now starting to talk to young people in terms of how it's their job to take care of it and win. Of course i say we. I mean the vast majority of humans on the planet because a lot of the decisions are in the hands of regular folk. But we do have this kind of desperation expectation that people will come along and put together something that we haven't been able to do and that's not really fair now. It isn't but you see in the book your referring to someone who looks like greater but she has a different name what is the name. Cordelia pine kind with it or gardenia. Pine cone is one of them. And that's the most wonderful name. I've come across in a long time. I wanted to put greater in the book infected. I tried to contact her and say would you read my book and write a forward and she didn't get back to me and that's okay 'cause she gets four million emails a day. Yes exactly so. I totally understand that. She wasn't available but it was really about being able to say someone like greater is doing this and we can't all be greta but she's in fact just one person who's doing the same thing that we need. Millions of young people to do now. There are lots of really good scientific references there. But there's one puzzled me. It's fairly long so let me actually read. What's here in the book. It's about piece of technology and you understand very well so far that when it comes to technology. I haven't a clue what's going on anyway. It says the d. foof elisa solar powered vacuum matic vowel sucks up all the nearby poop. Poison foof and flange through the hyper magnetic recycling filter to remove all the bills. Then it's passed at light speed down the anti-gravitational spewed out to be flogged. Back ended home in front. That spits the remains out the plumping shoot into a bucket. All that's left behind is a few nuggets of nickelodeon and you won't believe this. All the bandicoot of the workshop thought. This was hilarious because nickelodeon is a previously unknown form of completely renewable energy that is hugely powerful and totally clean how. We laughed and laughed now in three words. Could you summarize what have just read letitia. The inventing warburg come up with no. I can't not three words there. That's one of the superheroes in the book is leticia who was a genius. Science one bet and she invents all sorts of different machines that do different things with the that work in the mic workshop underneath a headquarters of the environs and the default elisa machine that latisha invented and it removes what they call the poison off which is in fact the in the greenhouse gases. And we know that that carbon isn't infect poisonous. But you just wanted in the right places in the right quantities. The default removed the poison for from the atmosphere. And one of the things. I realize with this wonderful invention which they start trying to deploy around the world. Is that even if you do in fact remove the carbon from the atmosphere. There's still a lot of other problems and difficulties that are going to be solved and it really trying to talk about how chafe nickel solutions to. Climate change are important but they're not infect the answer indeed and where is the island on which this otx. it feels like tasmania. But it isn't is it. It's not a nickel knows. Island is one of the places. I visit with. Captain snoot hall. Who runs the secret. You refuge the and suggests that if they really want to understand what climate change is that need to go on a perilous journey across the waterfall. And are they need to go and talk to the great nipple and the great nipple is a creature who lives at the top of the haunted volcano and explains climate change to them in

Avatar: The Last Airbender Creators Depart Netflix's Live-Action Series
"Okay, let's start off with A bit of news that I'm sure comes to some disappointment our own ht. What is going on with Avatar the last air bender they were GonNa make a live action TV series for net flicks. What is the update? The latest update is a real bummer for avatars last Air Bender Fans Michael Dante Di Martino and Brian Connie ebsco who created the original acclaimed nickelodeon. Animated Series have parted ways with net flicks over the creative direction of live action remake series. De Martino Post announced in a post on the website titled An Open Letter to Avatar last air bender fans saying that they couldn't control the creative direction of the series and decided to just exit the project altogether and he he had some pretty not I wouldn't say harsh but not. Veiled for in terms of thinly-veiled In like knots unhappiness with Netflix production So he said at one point The project, which is still ongoing has the potential to be good. But what can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on screen, it will not be what Brian and I had envisioned or to make. So this is a massive bummer for Avatar. The last Air Bend Fans because De Martino. Goes involvement in the first place was kind of the reason that There was somewhat cautious excitement for this because these the creators at donors in executive producers for the new Netflix series and they promised or shared rather that they would be deliberate. Choice to a cast as. A people of Color and ethnically accurate to the depictions in leverage animated series and the. The memory of the last live action attempt. Ed Bender is still strong in fans mines, and we don't want a repeat of that. So now that contracts go rhino are gone, there's a lot of fear that the the. Disaster will be. Repeated. Yeah, we shouldn't insinuate that this disagreement it's probably over like the the the racist of casting or anything could be like story or character that we don't even know what the disagreements are over. This is a little surprising to me though because my conversations with filmmakers on and off the record has been that like Netflix's is pretty hands off with stuff. So I'm actually very surprised that big Conflict here I'm curious as a as a fan of Avatar the last air bender now that the creators are known no longer involved in this, would you still be excited to watch live action series not at all? My cautious excitement from before. Has now turned to a sort of read. which not to say that there can you know the situation can't come out the better I'm sure that there are some great. Writers and creators out there who could have an affection for Avatar last bender could. Steer this in the right direction, but it just feels like. Martino and Connie lasko are such a major part of Avatar less air bender and its success in why such great perfect animated show that they're not being involved in stepping way in a in this situation where it seems that they clash with the Netflix's executives in some way can't really know what? I sure what it just doesn't dumb. Bode well for the production at large.

Last week we talked about the dawn of the Internet while the news service revolutionized a decade. Decade it also created pervasive concerns over the future of ethics, technology and communication today will focus our attention on yet another screen, the small screen that is, we'll dive into the explosive appeal of kids television in the nineteen nineties and the meteoric popularity of Nickelodeon, the network would carve its name from the landscape of novel programming with larger than life game, shows and suggestive animated series. But there's more to the story of these shows, and all of the controversy woven within them. We'll take a dive into nickelodeon slime right after this. A picture is worth a thousand words right. In the early nineteen hundreds before talkies became popular, working urbanized Americans could head for the nearest nickelodeon. Tiny theaters tucked into storefronts along city streets. For, the price of nickel patrons were admitted to view moving pictures within a makeshift setting, and so was born. The saying put another nickel in in the NICKELODEON. Almost a century later, the term had morphed into a commercial beast, though its new identity was still an image to its origins. Pinwheel a television network that originated in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven was renamed nickelodeon in Nineteen, seventy nine in just a decade, the young network vastly set itself apart from the competition, and by the nineteen nineties Nickelodeon had become a home for the Wacky, weird and the off color. Eventually it would cement this reputation through its live action, programming and animated series programs that would be off the cuff and unapologetic, which catered perfectly to a very hungry market nineties, kids were primed to ingest content that both appeal to them, aesthetically with its Brash actors and Quirky Graphics, and that cater to their own, loud and rambunctious sides. These programs were only made possible by changes that swept children's television the decade before. One shift in particular had set the stage. In nineteen eighty-four, the FCC which sets broadcast regulations decided it was no longer compulsory for television stations to provide quality programming for children instead broadcasters. To consider the needs of children in programming decisions gone were the days of nineteen sixty six sesame street with its wholesome anecdotes and moral takeaways shows were no longer obligated to enrich anything for children, which paved the way most importantly for marketing opportunities. The landscape of kids TV in the nineteen eighties was a dizzying blur of transformers strawberry shortcake in G. I. Joe, which critics like into? Into half hour advertisements, these programs created iconic marketable characters for kids to obsess over. When the screen went dark, they craved corresponding merchandise, thus the era of model figurines and breakfast cereal tie-ins was born. Advertisers tried to spin this as a positive for everyone, insisting these partnerships were all quote unprecedented opportunities to participate in our capitalist economic system, but while companies loved this regulators apparently did not. Briefly it seemed like TV for. Kids would be overhauled to prohibit this pipeline. The Children's Television Act of Nineteen, Ninety attempted to stall some this mindless consumerism, but the language of the legislation was decidedly vague. The FCC simply did not delineate the difference between shows that were meant solely to entertain children, and those that were meant to provide specific educational tools, meaning basically anything could be presented as indistinctly educational, leaving Nickelodeon a pretty long runway to start building out a wacky crass slate of shows. You can't do that on television was zeitgeist Canadian sketch program featuring young actors. It was picked up by America's Nickelodeon to run from nineteen, eighty, two until nineteen ninety, and in that time a record nine seasons were churned out in the US. It was the most popular show on Nickelodeon as vox put it. The show was beloved by American kids, because it represented the anarchic spirit, the very one that would come to define the network. You can't do that ended his run just as the nineties were kicking off. Had already, said a desirable precedent of messy and. Dog shows a stark contrast to it's dry. Educational counterparts children delighted in seeing actors, their own age, performing comedic sketches, laden with physical gags and toilet humor nick had struck gold sketch. An underutilized format for kids serve dual purposes for the network for one. The silly often slapstick nature drew in young viewers like Garfield to lasagna on a more disenchanting note, the constant shuffle of sketches made it nearly impossible for kids to process the meaning of what they were laughing. You can't do that was able to quite literally cut in and out of sensitive topics, not only were the underlying themes of the sketches, not explained they often went completely above the heads of viewers take one of the show's recurring skits known as the firing squad.

"Two. Thousand Eleven wasn't the best time to be a twentysomething adult or Something in fact, most everyone in America could agree. The great recession had left behind a sense of bleakness. In, those disheartening times, people turn to small comforts, television was especially soothing, the more familiar, the better this sentiment, a thirst for nostalgia in trying times, certainly informed conversations about programming at one major television network. The question of whether to bring back the golden era of nickelodeon shows wasn't one of if but when. As one network executive recalled, there was an insatiable desire to just play the hits so to speak. millennials especially wanted the cheeky brash catalogue of shows that had defined their childhoods. Soon enough nickelodeon revived a block of television called. The nineties are all that it tug on the heartstrings of young adults ratings went sky high. These shows were beloved, no doubt bringing back memories of Saturday mornings, huddled on the couch with sugary cereal, and of late nights, guzzling soda with friends, but distance makes the heart grow fonder, and time has a way of bringing clarity.

Diving Deep with Melissa Joan Hart
"I would love to just kind of start off talking about. I mean you've kind of been in the limelight for most of your life. Now you've been behind a screen and I'd love to hear Maybe how that has affected you. Would you let your boys do acting if they wanted to get into it? Just kind of love to hear your story a little bit. You know the thing is. I didn't know any other childhood right. My childhood was I had a fairly normal childhood where I grew up with my parents siblings on a Dead End Street Long Island walking to school every morning riding my bike valet classes. Because my parents couldn't take me because were too many children in our house. and But I also auditioned ended. Theater ended commercials and stuff like that so I think it was a little bit short of the way anybody else would take take a hobby seriously if somebody was a major soccer player at school and doing really well with that or if someone was gymnast and be being pulled out of school at the time for certain events started Nowadays everyone does travel. I don't travel was a big thing when I was growing up. But like you know missing. School for work was kind of odd but it was what I knew and everyone else had a lot of questions about it and I got very embarrassed about that kind of thing but Yeah but time I was like thirteen I was on Clarisa or maybe fourteen but not a lot of people had cable so my my kind of well growing up I was known as the rice krispies girl I was known as the Arnold Bright Girl like all these commercials I would do. Or if someone's parents let them watch me on the equalizer or they happened to see me on Saturday night. Live or I let a bunch of girlfriends come see me play ones but most of the time when I was doing a lot of theatre in my early middle school days nobody knew I was doing big FYODOR. Nobody they just knew I was going out at night. They had no idea at I was I was doing. You know a big play with big names and all this other stuff so And then Clarisa happened and while I was on a TV show filming in Orlando. I wasn't in Hollywood. I wasn't going to Red Carpet. Wasn't part of the whole scene circuit and then the show is on cable wasn't like a lot of people had it until later so really that's show became popular very slowly. Nickelodeon knew that there was good numbers behind it but as far as being recognized on the street it happened and I was living in New York City where nobody looks at your face anyway. Often keeps going. You know once in a while I would get stopped on the street in my teen years and I'd be kind of like flabbergasted by it and annoyed by it was weird. I don't know them but they're pretending they know me you know and and then Sabrina happened. We moved to La. I was twenty you know and I was a little more prepared and ready for it and so you know I feel like in a sense. I had a pretty normal childhood. Really until ninth grade and then ninth grade but you know teen years or was weird anyway kind of happy to get out of the high school setting away from peer pressure. I had a few friends but didn't really have group and felt like feel like I belonged which I think a lot of middle schools do so when I was around adults and working I felt very safe. I felt very accepted as long as I was. Nice to everyone It didn't matter what I wore. What music I liked who I dated. None of the adults care about that. Yeah so I learned very quickly that like L. Like how middle schoolers. They're mean to me because I were the wrong shoes with my outfit or desma. Mahir read for a play or something you know. And I'm like you know these adults are just like just be dumping ass right like as long as I was nice and I think that's sort of why I learned very early to like on a sat like you. You WanNa be professionally one. Do Your job you Wanna hit your mark in. It doesn't matter if you're the star or not like everyone has to behave themselves in a certain way. You don't get to be a diva because your names the one on the idol in your face. The one they're using to promote it like doesn't am. I get you a few things but I like to whenever I use sort of diva behavior. It's only to benefit everybody

So the success in Canada doesn't have to be a portmanteau doesn't you can just leave it at the door, you know? But this was back in the eighties if before everyone was doing it, the success in Canada got Knicks interest in Nickelodeon aired a handful of episodes in they edit it down to a half hour format during nine hundred eighty one as a test run. This is something that I find very fascinating. So over the next few years, the ratings gradually declined in Canada. So by nineteen eighty five, you can't do it. You can't do that on television with seen only once a week day morning, timeslot on TV, but continued to go. To go strong in the US on Nickelodeon where it aired at I five times a week and eventually every day they want every day. Also, I think it was because they started to change their format. Their topics like once they knew that they were going over to the US Airways to Nickelodeon audience in an American audience. I think they kinda lost their Canadian viewership.

"Name nickelodeon nickelodeon i logo was a cartoon mime looking into a viewer i've never seen this before but apparently it was shown as an interstitial between shows and the mine would always turn the crank when the next program was about to start and i can't imagine the mind logos stuck around for all that long right like if feels like a very outdated idea to even be using a mime in the first place yeah it really was and the network changed logos a few times in those early years eventually they settled on this big silver pinball with the name of the channel ridden in rainbow letters and they with that until the iconic orange splat logo hit the cnn this was in one thousand nine hundred four all right so everybody can remember that one everybody that watch tv in this generation so so how did that come about exactly because it is this strange transition to go for mind pinball to orange slime i wouldn't say it's a very clear cut progression yeah this land actually debuted on the networks i hit show you can't do that on television which we talked about earlier this series it started abroad in nineteen seventy nine but nickelodeon did begin airing it until i guess nineteen eightyone in the us and featured both scripted and improvised skits with a few adults and a rotating cast of teen actors or preteen actress actually and those were the first folks that were slide by nickelodeon so it that point so it was slime was a recurring part of the sketches i mean i feel like that would be hard to write in over and over again so that's the thing apparently the green slime was roger prices idea he was the show's creator any came up with a as kind of a punishment for whenever one of the kids would say i don't know during a sketch right i'm sure you remember that was the code word to get slammed and i always thought it was just like a fun joke but the phrase really got on his nerves and then price also took the dumping water on the actors whenever they said water but that was just because he thought it was funny i mean it was pretty fun exciting as a kid to see this happening and you have course would pretend to have these kinds of scenes at home or you'd say i don't know and pretend to dump slime each other it is funny that he came up with this idea just because the phrase got on his nerves it doesn't really sound like the type of guy you should be working with kids yeah and i think the network was more or less aware of that because the show actually had this rule where no parents were allowed onset and the kids weren't allowed to take scripts home with them either but to be fair when the cast started complaining about how frequently they were getting slammed in soaked price did start paying out bonuses of twenty five or fifty dollars for each slamming so these kids every time they got slime they would get an extra payment and it feels like maybe they would just start saying i don't know on purpose just like an extra fifty bucks but it also feels like a lot of effort just to keep the whole slime gag going i mean it was kind of out of necessity what's interesting is that you can't do that on television was pretty much all the network had going for it at this point and even that wasn't enough because one thousand nine hundred four the channel had lost four million dollars and they routinely finished last in ratings among cable channels i mean it's kinda surprising to look back because that was such a pop show that it it's hard to remember that there was a time where they weren't doing that well so to how did they manage to turn things around so this is so strange but the thing that actually turned it around was the slime or at least i guess this like wild messy attitude you know that's lime represents there was no other place on television where kids could see themselves acting up right alongside grownups or playing games joking around and of course making a huge mess as well and people at the network took notice of this appeal i mean this sounds dumb but that summer i was talking about threes in we all love nickelodeon so much was that instead of being something dished out and given to kids it actually felt inclusive like kids were part.

"Hey podcast listeners welcome to part time genius i'm wilkerson and his always i'm joined by my good friend man gosh how ticket her and on the other side of the soundproof glass wearing a spot on recreation of quayle man you know the quail men costume from from doug of course that's our friend and producer tristen mcneil you remember quayle man right mango vaguely he was the kind of the imaginary superhero persona that doug was always doodling and his little journal you remember this so i liked doug but i was really more of a hey arnold guy myself i'll be honest i'm i'm with you on that but yeah it's tough to choose a favorite from so many of the iconic shows from nickelodeon the networks golden age gave us so many memorable characters in fact i'm not sure if you knew this but nickelodeon actually going through a bit of a resurgence right now and that's thanks largely to the nostalgia that people feel for those early shows yeah it's funny to me because my son was at camp and while they were waiting pickup like they were all watching rocco's modern life and i could leave it feels like a tv show that was so many generations ago well actually if you look at the hollywood headlines from recent years i mean i it's kind of crazy how many old nick shows are currently set for revivals and reboots so i was just making a list of these you've got hey arnold rocco's modern life double dare which is awesome clarissa explains it all are you afraid of the dark invader zim ren and stimpy and the wild thornberrys i mean the list just goes on and on it's got everything on there except doug for some reason yeah but you know that that is of course a notable emission but maybe today's show will drum up some interest in a doug comeback and you know with nickelodeon being back in the limelight now feels like a pretty good time to take a closer look at the networks history and trying to get a sense of what made those nick shows so special in the first place and also i think we both just want to know how they got into the slime business to begin with that's right but i do feel like we're getting a little ahead of ourselves because nickelodeon wasn't always the network that slime built in fact in its earliest days it wasn't even called nickelodeon back in nineteen seventy seven the network launched as pinwheel which was this low budget channel aimed at preschoolers and this was during the earliest days of cable tv and then after two years modest success the network decided to expand its audience and in that process is when it was rebranded as nickelodeon which is i guess that word means kind of like an old movie theater right yes so i actually realized that like nickelodeon was this pop up small theater and the name actually comes from a combination of the admission price which was obviously just a nickel and the greek word for theatre apparently the first of these nickelodeon opened in pittsburgh and this was way back in nineteen oh five and then they popped up all over the country for the next five years or so at least until the larger movie palaces began to replace them and it wasn't something i thought about as a kid i just i didn't even know the word came from anything but it does feel like a little bit of a weird name for kids network and hindsight yeah this true and actually people in general to be a little confused about the word really means and that's partly because of a popular song from the late forties i includes the line put another nickel in the nickelodeon which was i guess more of a coin operated jukebox or music box or piano player i don't know exactly what it was but there's actually a third meaning to nickelodeon which refers to these old timey movie picture viewers where you turn a crank and through a viewfinder you'd watch short vaudeville act or something and it's actually that last one that the network had in mind when they chose the.
