"Second this week it was showtimes. Turn at the virtual. Tc this week. And they came armed with some news. Among the headlines showtime has renewed your honor for a second season despite submitting the show starring bryan cranston as a limited series for emmy consideration and of course ultimately snubbed so bryan cranston will return for season. Two which is expected to return in twenty twenty two other news included a season four renewal for diesels mero as well as a pickup for flash bush misdemeanors and showtime also had some panels for its upcoming originals including dexter. Which was the only panel. That i had time to check out but dan. You watched a lot of this stuff and you did ask a question during the panel is showtime exacts about the what. I'm gonna call category fraud with your honor. And i think ultimately category fraud was something that was easier to charge in a world in which the categories were more set in stone or more black and white and i think the point that my question was to showtime executives was about terminology semantics and win words have lost all meaning also category fraud. Really really only comes into play when it works. So yes if they renewed this show or we're in the process of renewing the show while also campaigning for emmys as a limited series. It's a little fraudulent but it didn't work if it had worked. If you're under had gotten twelve emmy nominations. I assure you they would have held the renewal announcement until after the voting period closed. We would not have gotten a renewal this week. Right in the middle of voting saying yes vote for us for best limited series and we're coming back next year it wouldn't have happened but that's completely moved. It's and and this was a show that you know. A lot of reporters myself included new months ago was gonna be renewed for season two. That kinda started leaking. Which is why showtime wound up announcing this wide because everyone knew it was coming back. So that's another question too so you know as we go back as big little lies which really started the whole debate about is this true limited series or is this just what your advertising it as meaning it's less than twenty two episodes which pardon me but literally everything is like less than that these days but the issue is big allies had to go back and draw new contracts for all of its stars because intrude limited series fashion. They only had one year deals because it was supposed to be closed ended then of course it became. This big breakout one. Pretty much every award. Everyone came up with an idea everyone signed on. You went out. Everyone got raises et cetera. So you know. I look back at to our interview from december episode in episode. Ninety eight with your honor showrunner. Peter moffett who told us quote. Do i know what season two would look like yes. He said at the time that they hadn't really talked about anything. But because his full focus was on finishing season one and all the editing et cetera and promoting it. But he knew then so that to me. It indicates you know. Did they have deals for bryan cranston for more than one season at the time. That's the real question of how. How will know if there was category. Fraud committed but again. Good luck getting getting your your hands on copies of people's employment contracts and to me it's ultimately less category fraud at at this point as the categories no longer make any sense and we've reached the point really and truly at which in a perfect world. The emmys would basically scrap everything. Start from scratch and figure out new ways to approach lots of things. Probably that would include a non gendered acting categories. That's the thing that in two thousand twenty one is probably necessary. We had a a question last week for male back that we didn't get to but the question about drama and comedy and whether those actually reflect what today's television really looks like and the answer is not hugely but if you had a drama category everything would be a drama day. There'd be basically nothing that was actually a draw just a drama or just a comedy and with this limited series thing. It's a thing i've been saying over and over again. We will get a second season of mirror vs town i. I don't doubt that for a second but there. It is nominated for everything in limited fields. And that's just what it is. I anticipate someday we will get a second season of one division. This is just my guess. I don't know anything. Nothing is directly required in a second season based on where we left things. I just happen to expect. We'll get one. Yeah and why did they also like mayor of his town nominated in the limited series category. Yeah so it's no longer to me. An issue of fraud. Exactly so much as an issue of the terminology. That's being used. No longer being reflective in any way of what the television landscape in storytelling landscape. Actually look like and so. I don't know what the alternative is. I just. I've been prone over the years to throw around accusations of category fraud and i still think. Hbo did with big little lies. Was that but. I don't know any more that that's the case it's a little bit angels dancing on the head of a pin in terms of what any of it really means and how it makes the decision of what anything is but you know. Lovecraft country was limited series. Ultimately it's up drama contention. It's all it's all sort of where things are at the exact moment at which you take the picture but it was up for a limited series because hbo passed on season two. So do you redo this. And we do like the best show ten episodes or less or do you do best show that was produced on this kind of a budget like i look at some of the journalistic awards that were submitted for and all these other things and it's like best publication with this circulation et cetera. Which you know obviously the bigger the circulation the bigger budgets the bigger amount of resources that you have in the same kind of applies the same logic anyway applies to television right. So if you're spending twenty five million dollars to get you know. If you're spending an absorbent amount of money to get reese witherspoon and jennifer aniston on your show but you're only doing ten episodes. Should you be competing with a show like betty for example. I'm just grabbing at straws. Because we just talked about that which was six episodes and probably produced for like ten bucks right. So how do you compete at the same time right. And this is a conversation that the broadcast networks have been talking about for a long time. These shows are produced. You do a new episode. In what six or eight days depending on what the production are and then depending on what the time is and then you have to get that rushed through and edited and everything else. So it can air at a certain time. Because you have add. Add loads that have been presold against that and an original episode where versus if you're doing a six episode limited series for netflix. When look when it's done you get a premier date if it's not done you don't get a premier date..

"He's in one of the great cities, New Orleans and in this theories, Bryan plays a judge. And it was interesting for us. Brian, We've seen you on Broadway in film, but you waited a while before you tackled another television. Syriza. I mean, breaking bad was so powerful that probably that was the smartest thing to do. Give it a little rest. I did I For some reason, I came up with this arbitrary number of three years after breaking bad finish to just step away from the medium and And to do some theater and do film and I attracted to the storytelling aspect of it. So whether that takes me To live theater or television, Syrians, orbits, comedy or drama, or if it's a family film or for adults, it really doesn't matter I'm go with to wear. I'm I feel motivated. Andre having these stories resonate. And they do resume. Now This one is a little bit different, because these are questions that as parents, many of us tackle or try to deal with your character in this case, ah, very well regarded Judge With a strong sense of honor and Morrow's his son became involved in a hit and run and then were taken on this journey. How far Should or what a parent go to save their own kid. And here we have this honorable judge with an impeccable reputation, and he's faced with this awful dilemma and You know you yourself apparent, thank gonna still have to deal with this for we all deal with issues concerning our Children. It's one of those things, Joan, That is so base it Z the Foundation of a human being. When you become a parent is that your number one responsibility is to protect the life of your child. And so the question here on this Showtime. Syriza. Your Honor asks that question. What would you do to protect the life of your child and in my character realizes that my child's life is in mortal danger. If I allow him to accept his mistakes and go into the court system on be exposed and vulnerable in that way, Um very bad People are going to get a hold of him. And they will kill him. And so that's that's something that my character and even myself would say. I can't allow that to happen. I must protect my child. So I asked people all the time when I tell them the premise of your honor. I said, Well, what would you do? Would you become a criminal if it meant that you could protect your child's life and to a person? They said I would. Absolutely. And I said, Okay, so you would become a criminal and like my character does he has to He has to create alibis. He has to lie to authorities. He has to destroy evidence. He asked to diminish testimony of other people even manipulates the system. Okay, I can see all that in grade situation, but would you be involved in something that harms or kills another human being and all of a sudden, it's like No, I can't. I couldn't do that. And that's where this series spirals to a place that is so dramatically appealing and horrifying. And sometimes that you so grateful that it's not your life. No as you're watching because your character this judge More than a lot of people knows that kind of risk involved in this behavior, which spirals and it's almost out of control. It does raise so many issues. When you're watching this was and let me ask you a question What made Everyone decide to shoot this in New Orleans. Well, New Orleans is one of our more beautiful cities, and it has a culture that steeped in And food and music and drink and togetherness and and celebration. Even when there's a funeral, they have what's called a second line. Participate in a second line is an ad hoc group of musicians who just march with with the casket down the street playing jazz. And as a celebratory way of sending their loved one off to a better place. It Z beautiful. And in a sad way, um But so And then the judicial system down there, collect anyplace else. It's challenging. There's corruption. There's the inordinate amount of African American people who are locked in. This. Uh, you know, unfair, a system of justice and in the penal system, um So we we show that we were very authentic and presentation of the story and it's it's rich. It was a beautiful place to go toe to shoot this series. And it's a 10 part. It's a real thriller. But what I'm curious about is during a pandemic and you have a big cast right over 300 people. How do you deal with that? Well, what was interesting is that we've shot eight episodes before we got stopped in March. We couldn't complete our order. And then during the seven months of of the lockdown, Peter Moffett, our writer. On executive producers decided to embrace it. We were looking at being faced with protocols that would not allow us to continue with the story as it was written, so he called an audible and changed several components to it, and we are now embracing the lockdown. So at the beginning of the main try Ellipse near the end of the Syriza is when The world is entering into the pandemic Awareness right at the end of February. Beginning of March is when the trial takes place 2020 so it actually by just racing that the real condition It helped us keep socially distant. Some people are wearing masks. You know, we're not having large crowds, things like that. And you and your wife. I remember you telling me both got the virus was that well before you started shooting We got it back in the second week in March, so early on surprised us all. But you know my life and I look back and realize how lucky we were. We had some body aches. Not enough to keep you in bed. But just still uncomfortable. And you don't. Well, yeah. You don't feel great. We had just extreme exhaustion for a week and then the Strange one. Is that what what's lingered is the loss of taste and smell. We had impact us for several months, and now it's come back, but not completely. It's about 75%. And you guys like to eat. Who doesn't Joan? That, you know, we certainly do. It's one of life's great pleasures. Had one of the things that's happened during the pandemic is not only do we watch TV nonstop, something we have not done before. But where, in that kitchen cooking baking. It's like what happened to us. And there is some silver lining to that. I, too, got out my baking sheets and learned how to make sour dough Bread. And my my grandfather, who was a baker for profession would have been proud, I think, and it was fun to do following the recipes and trying different things and Ah, lot of people found silver lining to this lockdown, and I think that that's also a very Joyous human trade is to try to find the benefits of certain situations. Absolutely right. I'm talking to Bryan Cranston, who tonight at 10 O'clock December 6, his brand new Syriza's. Your Honor is going to premiere on Showtime, and I'm curious. Because you've done a lot of theater. A lot of film. I know you've been offered so much stuff. What made you say? Yes to this very complicated judge. I. When I first read the script, I was captivated by the concept of it. Of, uh of a broken man, A man who willingly puts himself in a position to break the law. Um, and I just simplified it by thinking. Okay, So here's a good man. Uh, He does the wrong thing for the right reasons and that stuck with me, and I think it's really lovely storytelling. It's harrowing. It's exciting and thrilling and Tragic. Uh um, yeah, it's it's exciting and leads to a very shocking ending, very appropriate and very surprising. And it was surprising even to me when I first read it. Mm. All right. Well, we've got to wait to the end. We've got to start right at the beginning. So now Are you going to give yourself a little time off arrest or you're going to start another project? Oh, no, I'm I'm shutting down the circuit here. I'm I'm on the press tour to promote it for showtime and happy to do so. Um, but then after this, I I need to Closed down and hibernate for a few weeks and then see what comes up. I don't have anything that set..

"To Chicago's very own, Amy Land. Decker may be related to somebody who also works at the station s. Oh, you are a detective in this new Showtime. Syria's tell us what the Syriza is all about, because it's getting a lot of Gabby right now. It's um It's very twisty, Turny kind of murder thriller. Like psychological drama with Bryan Cranston and at the helm, who was a nap salute, genius and a cast filled with Just incredible. Um, actors from Michael Stolberg to car Diego Tonto. Hope Davis was just goes on. And it's um really, um, the writer is was one of the producers of the night of and there's a producer from the good wife and it's just like a very strong classic. Drama of like, You know of that era of like when cable started with the wire and Sopranos and breaking bad and so it's really a thrill for me coming from Kind of a more comedic job recently to go into kind of, you know this other completely different type of style. I was reading the script. It was really fun. I mean, I had a blast. There's something very iconic about. You know, playing detectives and attorneys. And But what's great about Peter Moffett, who's the creator? If he writes those characters with like a real life to them, you know if it doesn't feel like it's just a procedural, it has like a real. There's a real bill to the plot. So as it goes along, it's like a page Turner but on the screen, so you just kind of want to know what happens next. And it sort of culminates and you know a big finale, so it zah burn. It's a fun burn week to week of house and kind of just go wrong with sort of, you know, just simply like the premise says. You know, just trying to save this, You know, basically, if you watch the trailer, not giving anything away, there's a hit and run and it involved Bryan Cranston, son and the kid that he hit is not someone that he can hit. It goes into a whole cover up, and it's just a very, um It's a really cool sort of thriller. I guess it together, you know, sharing your term? Yeah, but I mean, you know, it does ask the question for those who have kids like how far will you go? And I imagine right off the bat after after reading this and seeing some of the Previews that Yeah. I mean, I I try to do it the right way. But, yeah, I'll do anything for my kids, and it's one of the things we're one bad decision can lead to a million more, You know, like, if you if you get yourself in a hole, the hole just have to keep going deeper and deeper, And that's kind of the other part of this is You know, how do you get yourself out? Once you started that that chain and you're just further and further implicated into something, So, Yeah, maybe it would be better from the start to make a really, but I don't even know. I mean, it's also the idea of a dilemma where you don't really have a good choice, right? You know, there's no good choice. Then you just kind of go into survival mode, You know, Um, but, yeah, I think I'd go pretty damn far. You know, it's a hard, you know, I want to have to face it and the great thing about Brian and snack. Sure if he's just so willing to go to like I'm very deeply difficult psychological places and imagine what that would feel like when you absolutely believe that he's going through it. You know, it's just he's extraordinary. Have you worked with him before he's I mean, do you think about two of the biggest series of the last decade was breaking bad? Transparent and yes, during the signal? Lucky no, I haven't I worked on repeat what she was an e P O. Here's an executive producer, and s, so I I know him. My husband friends with them and had done I, uh L B j movie for HBO with him, And so I knew him socially little bit, but no, I never acted with him, and he was very intimidating to me. I mean, he's literally one of my favorite actors in the world and breaking bad is One of the greatest performances I've ever seen in a television show. Um, so it was like I haven't pied in that nervous in a scene with someone the first time we were together like it was sort of like a slightly like out of body where you're like watching someone who's like an icon, too. Now you're kind of in your playing with them. It's cool. Really weird. It was fun. That was a lot of fun. That's really like, you know, in New Orleans is also a star of the show. When you feel that was the same when you film this. When did you end up filming this? I'm assuming, obviously pre pandemic. It was both. I literally just finished shooting when they last week, So we were pre pandemic. And then we took a huge break. And then we finished. We had three episodes left to shoot. We went back and October. Wow. Um yeah, I was there for both. It was. It was interesting because I had I had worked on Project Power in New Orleans, which is the Jamie Foxx movie that was on Netflix the summer and that was my first time ever being in New Orleans, and we were actually doing reshoot..

"Trouble with Adam, you drove away. Four. They weren't chasing. That's right to help him. But I couldn't give something You called 911 time too. But he would even try again. Please. Yes or no, please, that I got you couldn't Breathing, okay? I got your body back, guys. This 10 part series begins like the HBO miniseries the Night off following the young man as he descends deeper and deeper into our horrifying spiral of accidents and consequences. That in grossing 2016 miniseries was created by Peter Moffett, who adapted it from his own British Syria's Moffett is the adapter of your Honor as well. But this time he's not working from his own story. Showtime's Your Honor is his new version of a 2017 Israeli drama called Co Voto, which has the same basic plot and is available of sample on YouTube. But for this adaptation for the United States, the location has changed in New Orleans and other elements are given an American spin from police brutality, toe local criminal activity. One thing stays the same, though, and it's the thing that makes your honor so gripping from the start. The father doing the right thing is both a judge and a citizen, a sports his son to the police station to turn him in with an explanation. But when he gets there, he sees the father of the victim and recognizes him is a powerful local mob boss. All of a sudden, the judge realizes that to turn his son in would be the sign his death warrant. So from that point on what is the right thing to do, and how many people does he have to enlist or deceive to do it? There's a certain flavor of breaking bad to this because we're essentially put in the position of sympathizing with and rooting for a person who's breaking and avoiding the law. But that's not a complaint because breaking bad maybe the best TV drama series ever made, and Bryan Cranston once again crafts a marvelously nuanced and empathic performance. And in your honor, he's not alone. The executive producers, In addition to Moffett and Cranston include Robert and Michelle King, the talented creators of the Good wife so both the characters and the legal twists are fully drawn. Hunter do hand as the judge's son has the same relatable acting skills is Cranston and needs to since he carries most of the show's opening, our and other riveting characters and actors abound. Michael Stuhlbarg from TV's Fargo plays the mob boss and Hope Davis plays his wife as a very fierce and involved sort of Carmela soprano to his Tony. And while Margo Martin Dale from Justified in the Americans doesn't show up, is the judge's mother in law until Episode four. Wow. Is she worth the wait? The writers on your honor include Moffitt himself, and the directors include Clark Johnson and actor and director Way Back on Homicide. Life on the Street and Edward Burger, who did a marvelous job directing another Showtime miniseries Patrick Melrose. Showtime provided only four of the 10 episodes of your honor in advance, but each one both impressed and surprised me. It made me hungry to see the next Cranston's Michael Dizzy Otto is smart enough to think on his feet and almost every scene requires him to do just that to avoid exposure in danger and to protect his only son. Whatever the repercussions to others. A serious title. Your Honor isn't just the judge's work title. It's also at the center of the show..

That's one thing we've gotta talk about but yeah.

Any wrote one of my favorite stories, the five doctors. That was his last one this this was his penultimate store. Exactly, but he was also script editor during the PERTWEE era. So he's obviously a very major contributor of course, wrote a ton of doctor who target novel adaptations Oh yeah. A various TV episodes from the classic era that a lot of fans including myself loved because especially for me for the five doctors because it took forever for them air that here in the states yet. So I actually read the novelization before seeing the televised episode PBS same here. So I. Was very, very grateful for that novelization. Let me tell you and I. So I was so waiting to see that rest on warrior robot in action. Yeah it didn't quite live up to what how it came off the book. Did it you know I think terrence did a little bit of a better job writing it than they actually did with production but. I kinda WanNa see like an updated modernized restaurant warrior robot. Be. Fantastic. That directed by Peter Moffett obviously directed a lot of great classic who episodes. This is the four serial from season eighteen in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, starring of course Tom. Baker as the fourth Doctor Lalla Ward as the second Romana Matthew Waterhouse's asterik stowaway. That it of course, John Leeson as the voice of Canine. So glad that in canines final season that John Leeson came back after David Brierley. Yeah it was You gotTa love, Canine, but the voice the voice was a little bit different. It was a little too drastic for me..

"But anyway, it just had to do that. Kind of get to move because. I! Don't get to talk, but my doctor very often so. Modular data. We start, go hang, think it's it's vital that we acknowledge I your choice of home decor evening. In tray with. Lovely little, Peter Davidson trae gear and the Brig. your exactly unfortunately I don't have. Obviously. They never released an older brig or you know like either nine hundred seventy, seven ninety three brigadier, but so I had a breakout. My Classic Brigadier! Got My? Peter Davison now be appeared. Doctor this one. This version with Panama hat although I do have one with no Panama Hat. No decorative vegetables from MELVA ALVA-. And then I also the regenerated one where he's still in. The fourth doctor's cost you. You know as we explained I think it was last week much like West, wing CJ's fishbowl. Key Charles Charles's bookshelf always has a some kind of. Significance to the episode were discussing so thanks for pointing that out. Yeah, I gotTa get address this thing up somehow, but obviously you guys got out. There can't see it, but I. Just you know just kind of for for us. This is for just the three of us are little thing so this episode. Written Modern Dad written by Peter Grimwade. Who wrote the previous stories time? Flight The rather dubious time flights and planted a fire, which is also planning to fire. That's the last story with Turlough as we kind of get a finally an explanation about who he is where he comes from just in time for him to leave the show. So and we talked about that before here on next up. Everywhere still haven't talktime time flight yet, but I'm perfectly willing because I kind of really perverse way I kind of enjoy that story. I know Hannah scrunches up upper face. At that one. But yeah I know a lot of people are just like us, but you know. We got to talk about the bad stories to right. To need to be fair, I did not see the master reveal that one coming. It gets that point that one point. Yeah, yeah! We talked about that for a little bit on twitter, didn't we? Right. So this was directed by Peter Moffett. So you had written by Peter Grimwade directed by Peter Moffatt, starring Peter Davison. Noticing a trend. In this one. Just a little bit. The third serial from Season Twenty and nineteen eighty-three, starring of course Peter Davison asked the fifth doctor. Janet fielding his Jovanka Sarah Sutton is Nisa and marks tricks in in his first story as visitor turlough. And obviously, we're going to talk about turlough. He's all kinds of shady in this one, and let's talk about their so Before we get into our guest, Kastner. Trivia Let's get everybody's general thoughts on this story Jesse. Let's start with you. And in. Get your general thoughts before we got. Yes trial news had got a sneak preview, and blatant plug that we'll get to later Charleston I. DO Other podcast together. And I met you him at the that this one was really good, and for those of you doing the drinking game, you will not be able to take a drink because I will not be able to about these slow pacing in the episode. I really liked this episode I thought, it was really well done I have some concerns about some of the characters, but the story itself was solid. It moves really well it. It was a great episode. Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it. 'CAUSE you know. Obviously, it's it's very. Hit or miss. With Jesse and the pacing so some glad I'm glad you enjoy this one and and hopefully you got a little bit more out of Davidson's doctor than you have before maybe hopefully. Yeah. I liked him a lot I think it. It. One of the things that we that does not serve the doctor doctrine. The companions well is that we pick and choose which ones to go in. That's good for the podcast. Because that way we pick episode that are interesting to talk about, but like I don't remember. Young, two or three years ago when we talked about this, the episode that follows like two episodes from this with Turlough. Don't remember that. Right and so in and I do see like sometimes unless the companions are really really strong it is hard for them to stand out. They just become kind of characters, and we get to talk about the companions. I'll share some more of that and I'm sure a lot of that has to do with the writing as well. Right hand what about you? Since? You were kind enough to agree to talk about this one instead of arc. What's your take on this one? What do? You like this. Or is it okay or what do you think? I say I tend to like it I think the first two parts are stronger than the last two end for me, honestly parts three and four. Canada blend together for me a bit so. I mean at that point kind of becomes okay. We're just GonNa Conga round the spaceship. Yeah, but I think it could have been condensed a bit I actually probably going to be the unpopular opinion in the room and say I actually liked just the trio of the fifth doctor this. In teagan not a big Edrich fan or Turlough fan for that matter so. I understand that.

"Oh, okay. So Dan he had reported the top of the hour. That's Netflix says renewed sex education, it's the U K drama. To eighties music. Would you say it's more comedy than drum drama because I haven't watched this drama. So just right down the middle. It is it is it is it's sweet. And it's charming, and it's heartfelt. Captures. The teenage awkward teenage experience in a way like we have not seen before. And I love that the person created the show woman. She said I wanted to capture the inks that John Hughes movies perfectly captured captured and that's why she's using eighties music. Even though it set in the now. Oh, I didn't know is today today's day, and also, you know, showing all the ranges of you know, where you can be high school is like, oh, meaning what kind of sexual? Like, you know, trans or you're gay or by they're showing all of that. Which is always says oh in that way. It's so much easier to be in high school now, but it's still all the same angsty stuff that goes around, regardless of what error you come of age in the click the group that is this bully that is in high school. It doesn't matter for, you know, forty years ago forty years from now twenty years ago ten years happening right now that is. That's very real. Okay. I wanna I wanna check out sex education. It's so so so anyway, they've renewed it. We're happy about that. Hey, they. Showtime is added Bryan Cranston drama. Are we excited about that? I heard that Bryan Cranston on Broadway doing network right now, you know, the old movie. He's Jews stunning. His. Anything? So this is your honor a limited series legal thriller said New Orleans. He's a respected judge who son is involved in a hit and run that leads to high seek game of lies deceit impossible choices, it is from Robert Michelle king who did the good wife. Peter Moffett who did the night of perfect. Yes. Saying this is gonna be amazing. Yeah. That kind of eight episode thing. And then Showtime said this will be the last season of homeland, which I think we knew. And the affair will wrap it up after five seasons. So they're looking for new fresh stuff to put on the air. Yeah. They are shameless is coming back for tenth season unbeliev really do either of you watch shameless this one that's on the air right now. No, I watched it like that very first season. And I think Casey watched it for maybe a couple more years. I just dropped out of it for. I don't know. I've probably had some high school show to watch. Sexy mermaids to watch. Riveting television. But I think Julia watches shameless does. Yes. And I love the fair that show was just I like the storytelling how they do it from four different characters. Just kinda interesting is anyone watched black Monday on Showtime, tried you tried for you know, was a little too just kind of humor. Just doesn't work for me at all. All right. No pratfall said, I didn't like it. Either. Ahead. We're talking about shows that are on Showtime legacy shows. I was going to like it. But I Don t did house of lies for a couple of seasons over on Showtime. Yeah. It felt like I already saw that movie called Wall Street eighties. Excess on Wall Street cocaine is just not just not Laurie seen it cocaine. You might save. The CW is all American because they renewed a bunch of shows yesterday and people were not watching all American. It's low rated but show. Digs is it's based on a true story about a guy that kid who was recruited from like Compton play for Beverly Hills high. He had a chance of being somebody. And it's it's really good in the kid who's in. What is the movie if Beale street could talk that? He's he's in all American. I think getting that. Right. It's loosely based on the life of former NFL player Spencer pay singer. Anyway, they are going to try on net flicks. And see if it does like what you did. Yeah. Which was the lifetime show that did gangbusters on Netflix. Let's so hard, and this is such a good move for TV shows looking to find their audience. There are some stat. I think it was an ad age magazine. Will they were talking about network television and network TV shows are down in their prime demos by like twenty five percent compared to two years ago? Yeah, why don't they do more partnerships with Amazon, and Netflix that would be kind of like do like they all want to do their own standalone streaming service. NBC wants to do. There's Disney's going to start. There's which is ABC CBS all access apple apple. I mean, all this stuff. But it. Yeah. People aren't watching the only network TV show. I think that people are really watching. It will that this is us in like demographics. This is uh is really the only show that is translating in two thousand nineteen but it's a stunning drop because when was the last time that either of you sat down and watched a real time network television show in prime time when it actually aired commercials and all old school. Detective on network. Not network broadcast, the big networks, NBC, CBS, FOX, etc. Etc. Like, you said this is maybe the batch. Yeah. That's it. And so two shows for Laurie. Donnie, I've got a couple. Yeah. Well, I I still like big bang theory. And I just adore young Sheldon. I think it's one of the best shows on television. Is that airing right now follows the big bang bang. I gotta I gotta watch any as Melissa Peterman to. Yes. Yes. But that's something where each of you who are high consumers of TV are only watching to network shows period. Like when they're actually. No. Everything. And so this all American CW got sixteen episodes. It's been low rated again, you know, so it, but it's going over to net flix, and then they're going to see if it will do what you did here we subscribers then they'll do a second season. But that is another that's a high school show that is kind of showing like the the Richy riches and the people who are living paycheck to paycheck. And there's you people at the close this story. CW? Tightness. I love it. So Netflix might save. We might get another season of that. By the way, want to let you know before we go to break if you are a deter detective episode five is streaming early. Now. Also, if you want to get ahead of the thing because Super Bowl. Yes. Is good. Are you watching that Moore? Herschel is amazing. Just are generational treasure. He is. He is just I love him so much. This is the first time I've ever seen someone do the age thing. Yeah. It's seamless. Look, I feel like I'm watching two different actors. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. That the hair and makeup in the way, he's doing it at night, I will elite. You know, when I saw him a Herschel backstage has just relive it for okay? Sunday night. I said, congratulations.
