Apple TV+ Hits Friday. Its Series (Mostly) Miss
"Let's start out with the explanation of apple TV this is a relatively new thing what we need to know about apple TV yeah this the views today actually if you bought an apple device after September ten graduations you already have it absolutely free for at least a year you can get a free trial by going to the apple TV app if not you can check out apple TV plus for four ninety nine a month it is launching a bunch of big buzz he shows the top of them is the morning show it's a drama starring Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve corral and it's a dramatic show despite the stars that are in it about a morning show that separate the meat you scanned all all of the today show and throws it into turmoil there's also CD which is a game of thrones style drama about a world where everybody is blinds starring Jason Momoa from game of thrones bunch of other shows on there it's I watch all of them at this point it is very much a mixed bag the only one that I really liked and I really can't recommend to everybody this show called you can send the stars Hailee Steinfeld as young Emily Dickinson and it's kind of like euphoria beats thirty rock meets his drama beats a million different things uncategorized of all but I was fascinated I and like to at least one joke perhaps said the morning show is ridiculously entertaining but supercell Sirius spend fifteen million dollars an episode which is an insane amount of money but apple so they're putting all of their chips in the US but so far I think everybody in the office here to senator greens the shows are not great so if you have a free trial and do you want to check it out certainly I would suggest sampling the morning show sample taken standing if that all sounds interesting if you're into sci fi there's a show from Ronald D. Moore who created it Battlestar Galactica calls for all mankind was about an alternate history where America lost the space race very well made but also reporting frankly but it the other thing if you don't have a free trial I would hesitate to recommend spending even before ninety nine the account just because I've been plagued by a lot of tech issues today people have been proud of had problems logging into free trials finding the shows except for so give it some time listen to the bison that baby check it out in a couple of weeks if you're interested what are they doing on the morning show that's costing fifteen million per episode is that for the kids a great cast is is that a lot of that money goes out to them is that what it is I think a lot of money wanted to them it's also it's a gorgeous looking show it's beautifully shot by being the letter who started director jail for awhile after she corrected the action movie the peacemaker mess and she did deep impact immediately after that but you don't ton of TV since then it's at the starting the shot was very clearly spent a ton of money on this and again the ID it's kind of trashing it's like very much a trashy soap operas so I don't know why they spent that much money on it but I I don't have a lot of time I sat down to watch three solid hours this nonstop back to back yes I could not stop playing so just in terms of entertainment value I think it's worth it for that I'm trying to think of the track record of other networks when they rolled out a new schedule I remember when fox first became a network years ago it was kind of a slow rollout they just did a couple shows at the beginning and then build from there it's got to be tough to come up with a full schedule of shows and have a mall be successful and and great right that's almost impossible it's almost impossible and this is a big problem with apple TV plus right now that they're not taking the lessons but a lot of the other streaming that works done even Netflix did that very slowly enabled out house of cards then they had arrested development arch new black before they wrapped up to you thirty five new television shows every single day of the week apple TV plus is trying to be all of that media plea almost wanting more of their own each be within their own Netflix because the other thing that you should know about this for the apple TV plus price you're only getting the shows you're not getting everything that he is on TV that you would normally get from the iTunes store the TV store or anything like that yeah it's just the additional shows so I wish there were better it seems like they just gave people blank Jackson said to everyone we don't know what's going on the TV so again some of the stuff is get service desk very bad hopefully it'll get better they're certainly not giving it up anytime soon because all the shares regardless of quality have been picked up for a second season I gotta tell ya I'm surprised that that your stars like a Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell are selling out to apple like that it just seems weird to me you know they've found a big screen the alignment and that I think they said was they want to give creators the chance to really express themselves so this case it's it's produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston it's been playing very different parts I will say they're both fantastic at the show Jennifer Aniston is unlike you ever seen her before so I think that's what they're going for the chance and the same thing that other folks are jumping at is actually a new version of Oprah's book club the diffuse its first absent today and again I think it was just this blank check that apple had into them and said you do what you want you follow your muse and some people follow their views and absolutely wrong direction and hopefully of course correct a little bit and that somebody will give them a little more guidance going

"Doctor a musician. I'm about to embark on a concert tour in the deep south would other experienced. Public relations skinny is using working for black man you and the deep south Louis problems. I've never had fried chicken at my life. We have a very narrow assessment of me told me. I'm right. And by the way, Greg Russell. That's that was Vigo Mortenson is his driver who's nominated for best actor in green book. But the consensus seems to be it will go to Ali for his performance in green book. What do you think we'll win? I absolutely go along with that yet. Mahershala Ali has just putting on some great performances or the past few years. I mean, he won the Academy Award last as well. He probably will win it this time for green book. But again, I also like them Rockwell invites you, there's a great voice, and you know, my sentimental favorite really is Sam Kelly always loved this guy. You know way back when with his performances, so I would not feel bad at all if they call his name. All right, Elliot woman. I Don I never understood why Steve corral didn't get a nomination for his performance in vice he was shut out for some reason or other but your pick for Betty look at what's the vote for Donald Rumsfeld. He was great in the movie. Yeah. He was fine. He was terrific in the movie. But there was one performance here that I think overrides all the others. And that was Adam driver in black klansman, which by the way, if I were voting member of the academy and was looking at the top eight films, the the nominees for best picture of the year to me black Lanzmann is the movie of the year, the most important movie of the year combination of spike Lee's career and the picture that's going to mean, the most of the most people for a long time. It's it's a thrilling movie who is speaking up there. Greg. Is that you grow. And we gotta get to supporting actress, this seems to be a done deal as well Cynthia Ford, and that would be Regina king in if Beale street could talk finding out that her daughter is about to give birth to a man who is going to jail. And somehow some way has to reconcile that situation who's your pick in the category of Amy Adams in the vice. Marina Tabora, I think in Roma and then Emma stone in the favored, Rachel fights in the favourite, they'll cancel each other out. So you're pick to walk away with the Ayrshire for best supporting actress Cynthia, well, I agree that the two from the favorite will probably cancel themselves out. I think Amy Adams. Just rises to the top of everything anymore. I I'm very fond of her performance. But and I never heard of or seen anything that Regina king had been in. But I thought she was magnificent. I so happy that I found this new actors for me because again, I've never seen anything. She was in. So I'm going to go with Regina king Elliott Wilhelm quickly Cynthia is almost always right almost always. In this case. She's absolutely right. And Regina king is fantastic. In a field street to talk, which is a wonderful movie it Amy Adams wins. I will not be crying. She was fantastic film advice. All right. Finally, Greg who you going with I go along with L A, and I loved any atoms in white. But if you believe that Regina king will walk away with your war tonight. And so happy for her. I mean being a child actor who actually knew her crap and his continued to so many years. So yeah, I believe that's the way it's going to go and the winner of the best song. Wait a second. Don't say anything you three. Lady gaga. Shallow. And Bradley Cooper. Hey, thanks, a lot to you three. Enjoy the Academy Awards have some popcorn for me. And we'll talk again soon Elliott Cynthia.

"Think that's fair. I think I'm gonna listen to Buzz Aldrin. Yeah. Over that guy from Hollywood. Well, he has a suggestion. Even though he's a big fan of the space force idea. He did tell the Daily Mail that he thinks that the name should be changed to space guard. Okay. Because he thinks space force is a little silly sounds a little more. He says it's too aggressive. Okay. It's too aggressive. It sounds like we're going out there to do mean things where it'd be more of a deterrent. Not an aggressor because it's not a strike, right? He wants there to be less meanness in the name in pay. So I right. I listen, I think that's fair. And like I said, I mean, I I trust what he has to say dude been on the men now when he when the news first broke last, June of the space force, even happening Buzz Aldrin tweeted about it that he thought the plan was quote, one giant leap in the right direction, which is.

"They do ED's now on NBC website. And also, obviously on their TV networks. So it's I think it's actually smart, it's too complicated. But I think it's smart in the sense that it's it's them admitting they need to build their own streaming service. While also being accepting the fact that there's a current way they make money, and they need to keep the money rolling in in that way. But this is an example, I think Mike when we talk about all these streaming services and all the silos going up like it used to be everybody had their own business. And then there was this insularity business for streaming where you just chucked bunch of your archival content and your old shows into it, and that's basically net flicks at the beginning. Which was like, sure, Netflix, whatever, blah, blah, blah, and they did their own things on their primary business. And now all of them realized they can't do that. Netflix is the primary business they need to take their stuff back and build their own net. Flicks. The Bill their own silo. And so everybody's doing it. Disney's doing it Warner's doing it and doing it CBS did it. And then obviously there are other players like apple. So this is just this is where we're going to end up, and and it's interesting if we bring in the other piece here, which is of and I think we've got an item about it in a minute is net. Flicks is aware that providers of content like NBC universal are going to be less inclined to sell a lot of their content to Netflix and the future because they're going to want it for their own service. Just like how Disney is going to build up marvel shows on Disney, plus and the marvel shows are are going to get canceled at Netflix. So we're we're seeing this realignment happen where all the big players have realized that inflex is not going to they don't it's not Nance Larry revenue stream anymore. It's like the revenue stream of the future, and they want to own it. And so they're all going to build their own silos and pull the content off of Netflix. Eventually with the exceptions of like we mentioned a few weeks ago that friends deal where Warner Brothers basically got paid a huge amount of money by net flicks to keep friends on Netflix because it's a huge show for for net flicks. But in the end, they're gonna put it on their own streaming service.

Be would pay to see that motion capture twins. That'd be tested a Hannah you'd seen the documentary. You were a fan of the documentary. I think he puts on a screening of it last year amongst Kaufman. And I did a screening of it. And I yeah, I very much the documentary. And I think the documentary is a much better film than walking tomorrow. And but I'm here Steve Carell fan. So I was excited about this. Just because I love Steve. And I'm, you know, I'm always excited when he gets a movie that kind of challenges him as an actor and is more kind of serious. And I think this is a good role for him. I think he gets a lot to do. And I think he's very good with a character. Who is not he's sympathetic, but he's difficult. And he does a lot of things that you kind of raise your eyebrows in the way. So this lesson around character, Nicole who moves across the road from him. He becomes kind of fixated on her. And you're kind of like, wow, this is like. Straight into quite uncomfortable territory. But there's something about Steve corral. He never kind of lose him. You know, you you always like invested in the journey that Mark is going on. I think I think it was really a good casting choice. But the thing I will say about this foam is that is very much as a Machiavellian like Forrest Gump mode. Even the score. You know, it all feels very kind of this man who has an impairment fixate on this lovely woman who comes into life, and she has to kind of like, you know. Gently. Would've spoil it. But you know, there are a lot of several areas between the two and the other thing I found quite jarring about it was part of the reason that Mark was attacked is that he likes to I women's women's shoes. And whatever this happened the Phil maybe it was just a screening. I was up whenever this came up in the film. People laughed, and I was like this isn't like a funny thing. I don't understand. I think some scenes, yes. The the problem is like I can't really think of a better way of doing it. But I don't want this film to make a joke. Oh this story because it's not a joke. You know? It's really Hauer wing thing that happened to him. And. Yeah, that for me just really sort of. You know, what he thought address? I might have just been the screening. I was out. I mean, the film sets itself up as comedy. I mean, it's obviously this slightly bitter sweet redemption story for this guy who's who suffered this trauma. But the same time you there are loss in this film. A lot of it comes from the motion capture sequences because they're quite silly, quite fun. And I think maybe that's the reason is is quite I mean, even in those scenes where capita hoagies is like fending off the Nazis is often wearing like bright vegeta- letters. And they are the Kurds is kind of comment on that. Because they are surprised, and I think the auspice to feel the same way. And I think is they should be commended ams makers than the screenwriter for addressing the cross dressing. And not just kind of brushing it to one side of Hollywood by picks often do, but yeah, I think as you said, it's quite tricky to handle, I'm not sure. That they could have done much else with it. This is strange detail, which was very confused by is where it kind of implies that one of the attackers was nuts. That didn't happen. So that's a weird thing to just add into the film to kind of make reference between oh Neo Nazis and the Nazis in his kind of mall when world that is weird to me. This is one of those things where Hollywood films always have to spoon feed, you information and make connections in a very literal way.

Well, it's based on a two thousand ten documentary tomorrow on coal, which I would really highly recommend say Imia is a really good companion piece to this movie and actually probably essential viewing. Actually, if you do one of them a bit more but Marc HOGAN camp the circumstances, which basically left him with partial brain damage and with memory loss. I think that's one aspect to this film that they brush over a little bit like not the attack itself, but the memory loss did he basically created this model village a new as a way to. I guess it's a form of self therapy. And our therapy, essentially, it's just to to create this this new world and find his own identity and personality, and rob is macro. I think he had a hit or miss late career. But certainly his motion performance capture animation films things like polar express and bear war flight films. Big fan base are thinking haven't always performed particularly at the box office for his work with with that technique is always kind of pushing you know, that that frontier, and I think he he uses it to quite magical affecting this film in the opening scene that we see is actually Steve corral as his fighter pilot US military alias, and you know, he he's constantly came back and forth between the various mundane reality of HOGAN comes real world existence. And then these these these really immersive spectacular scenes where everyone their action men figures, so you can see their joints. And they have this weird plastic sheen of refu people saying it's like quite of putting and uncanny valley aspect to it. I think of intended, and you're not MENA thing that these are just like real people is this. Fantasy is a strange I think for Hollywood biography is one of the stranger. I can think there's ever been made for for shoot major studio tobacco movie. Like, this feels like a big risk, and you know, the film's not perform well at the US box office. Unfortunately, his last few films. What were they the walk? He did flights was almost in the Oscar conversation for the performance their flight, do quite well, interestingly, the War, I assumed was based on Munawar documentaries, actually the other way round in the the inspiration for for the war came from a meeting between Machias, and I forget the guy's name. Sorry, who's? Renascent thing. Oh, the Frenchman who had you did the wall. Yeah. They basically decided we're going to do this film at years and years before. Yeah. So the the idea for the war came kind of before think the documentary. This one's the other way round with it was the documentary inspired to mecca, but it seems to have all the ingredients to have been fairly successful at whether it's just been marketed badly as slightly weird one to sound..

Could it be on the show? Thanks so much. I gather you're not happy about secretary Mattis impending departure either. No, look, I've been in public life for twenty five years. I'm an armed services member from a state. That's connected to the military. I have a son in the Marine Corps secretary Mattis has one of the best public servants. I've worked with in my career and his resignation, and especially the asserted reasons for the resignation should 'cause every American to be really really worried. Although was this inevitable Madison self in the resignation letter that I soon you're referring to there. He said the president deserves a Defense Secretary who shares his vision of the world, I think that's very diplomatically put. But if you look at the letter, basically, what secretary Mattis says is this that the two pillars of American security that are constant. And this is a guy who spent more than four decades providing security is a marine is one building strong alliances among democracies and second standing up. To thorough -tarian adversaries, and he basically said Mr President on these two values you and I disagree, and we've certainly seen in a president who undercuts allies at many opportunities using national security waivers to punish Canada and Europe, for example, and then cosies up to a thorough Teheran's such as Russia and and Kim Jong Hoon in North Korea. And that reason asserted by secretary Mattis is very very troubling. Have you talked to him if you talk to dramatically? I have not talked to him since the announcement. The announcement set off a firestorm now leave news, but ambassadors of European and other allies reaching out to Senator saying sort of what's going on announcements this week about Syrian Afghanistan, obviously, causing huge concerns among allies who were side by side with us.

You know, it's too early to say that there's a person that I'd like to see, but I want somebody who will be willing to stand up and speak truth to power one of the challenges. And this administration is those who do general McMaster, the national security advisor and secretary Mattis, they get pushed aside, but we need people who are experienced who will look the president in the eye and and speak truth.

Who would not get as long as there's a shutdown? Yeah. I heard you on Sarah calling him the Grinch about to steal Christmas, which I will give you credit. It's a good line. But subsidies. Senator or else? Well, thousands of people who are going to have to work without being paid over the holidays. You're you're absolutely right. And that was what we did when we gave them a bipartisan deal less than forty eight hours ago that he agreed to I know. But here we are society afternoon. So what happens? Well, what's going on? Right now is the vice president, Jared, Kushner, and Mick Mulvaney. The new chief of staff were up talking to Senator Schumer, and we're seeing reports out of that meeting that there may be an announcement soon about a path forward possibly a deal. I understand those administration officials went over to talk to speaker Ryan. So this is very much kind of a work in progress right now, no reason to shut the government down. Absolutely.

Dick Costolo and Peter Levine talk about everything
"Hi, and welcome to the a sixteen podcast. In this episode, dick Costello, former CEO of Twitter and as succeed, general partner, Peter Levin talk about all things leadership, how to do what you love. Why a background in comedy improv might be more useful than you think and the importance of resilience? The conversation was recorded as part of the brake line tech program for military veterans hosted at Andriessen Horwitz. Last time we met you were still CEO at Twitter and we haven't met sense. So what have you been up to and what was the departure? Like when I told the company I was leaving and one of the employees asked me what I was going to do next. I think I'm going to sleep until ten am like didn't do anything for six months, except travel around, went to Cuba, went to Africa, sort of all over the place. And then I'd not strange background in comedy, and I'd always wanted to go into comedy. So I contacted the HBO folks who are doing the TV show Silicon Valley and said, have want to come work on Silicon Valley and the CEO. HBO Richard pep ler said, well, we need to like technical consultant, but like we can't pay you to do it. And I said, I'll just do it for free. It was like, oh, okay, great. That's works. That works for us. Anyway. So I went and worked on season three of Silicon Valley for that year. So it was in the writer's room the whole summer, which was awesome. And just funny to see the perspective that the people in Hollywood have about like Silicon Valley and the way they view it differently than the people here view it. You did improv early on in your career and I needed tack. And how are those two? Are they related like outed one overlap and the other? You're the only person in Silicon Valley who kinda has that background for my under. Yeah, you're, I think that's true. So the need to tell the idea what happened was I was getting computer science degree, university of Michigan, and at the time it wasn't an engineering department. It was in the sort of humanities department back when I got it because I'm oldest. Fuck. So. I decided I had to take a class in my senior year that allowed me to have time to work on my operating systems class because my operating systems class was super hard involved tons of coding and I had to spend tons of time on that. So I thought while I'll take an acting class because that'll be like super easy. And I won't really have to do anything, and I'll just go up and do scenes and stuff and can spend most of my time on my operating systems class and had a ball doing that my first term senior year. So I decided it was gonna take another acting class and start doing like stand up at the student union on like open mic night and stuff. And that went really well and was super fun. So I decided when I graduated not to take any of the programming job offers I had and instead tried to go to second city in Chicago and do improv comedy and get into Saturday Night Live from there because that was sort of the steppingstone to SNL for everybody at the time and still is. In fact, I remember I got my first day and you're doing the second city training center and Steve corral and I in Rachel drafts role in the same group. So he and I and Rachel know each other from like. God thirty years ago. Now, anyway, long story, short, eventually, several years later, got my audition for us and Allen didn't didn't even make it to call backs. They're just got sort of nuked in the first round and addition for mad TV, which was on FOX at the time and didn't get that was like, all right, got to go get a programming job and went back into tech from there and amazingly using years later, the improv background and doing improv in front of, you know, hundreds and thousands of people without having a script like totally serves you well being a leader. One first thing you learn improv is that listening is the most important thing you can do on stage because he got to be aware of what else is happening in the scene and what else other people are doing. Otherwise, if you go out there was some preconceived idea about where the scene should go, and it's already going in another direction. It's not gonna make any sense. I mean, the people who are the best listeners turn out to be the best improvisers while eighty percent of what you do as a manager and a tech company and Silicon Valley is gather feedback and listen to your team and the people who go into the room thinking that they already know what the answer is and. Making decisions that create misery for the team or aren't based on the right information or full information, or maybe based on one stakeholders point of view, and they don't end up being very good managers leaders. The second thing was it was very easy to do things like interviews. I remember on first CNBC interviewed. The person was like, hey, this is going to be live. Is that okay with you? And I was like, I've been booed on stage at eleven pm at the Adelaide opera house by two thousand drunk Australians. Like I'm gonna be fine. Having a camera here while we talk for five minutes about advertising, you know, all these things that you do seem like they're totally random end up helping you as a leader. I teach at the DSP here and often my students come to me and say, hey, like what should I do after I graduate? What should I do with my career? And the simplest answer I give them do what you love as opposed to what's expected of you. Because many people come out of whatever environment and there's all these external pressures. He come out of school. You come out of a program, whatever, and people expect you to do certain things and. We tend to bend in those directions because of these external pressures. And so you're famous for doing what you love and not what's expected and how do you get over that? What's your advice there couldn't agree with you more? My commencement speech at university of Michigan in twenty thirteen. I basically told them the exact same thing. You just said, I said, listen, you all got here by meeting and exceeding expectations. You know, you get into the university of Michigan and you graduate from it by meeting and exceeding expectations. The problem is now there are no longer expectations, and if you do what you think you're expected to do or supposed to do instead of doing what you love, you know when things go wrong as they never do, you'll be standing there frozen on the stage of your life wondering, well, now what am I supposed to do? And instead if you do what you love and things go wrong as notably, will you become resilient, you know? All right. Well, the acting stuff I just all right. Well, that didn't work. I'll go do another edition. Okay. That didn't work. I'll go do this and you know, bounced around and do that stuff for seven eight years and didn't make any money. But it was awesome. I was having a ball performing and every time I took a big risk in my life that wasn't the right thing to go do next. It totally paid off for me and worked out long-term, and you know the other problem with doing what you're expected to do is people always tell students, they have to make an impact in the world. And I always thought like, I don't know what to do with that. What I'm supposed to do. And if I think back on the things that Twitter of things that I did in my life that ended up making an impact or having a big impact, I didn't even know they were making an impact while we were doing them to remember one time Medvedev the president of Russia was at Twitter and we were scrambling around trying to deal with him being there that day. And you know there were all these security dogs in the building and the building landlord didn't want dogs in the building. And the CIA was like, you're going to have frigging dogs in the building, and you're, you're running around and like it's a nightmare. And people are like trying to get an autograph from him. He's not going to give you an autograph is the president of Russia. Anyway. The next day in the fun of the New York Times was like, you know, Medvedev greets Obama on Twitter and there's the exchange greetings on the platform. And I was like, oh, that was like a big day in the world. But at the time I was like, shit stop asking for an autograph. So I just remember that is one of those great examples of you can't think about that stuff in advance and try to plan it out. It's kind of like what happens when you look over your shoulder is like, oh, that was those things that we did made this big impact. So you just have to do the things you want to do. If you're not doing what you love, you're not really going to be great at it and there's going to be somebody else who's doing that job that you think you're expected to go do. Who loves that job who will crush you right? Because they really want to go do it. And so the answer is actually so simple. Go, do what you love. No, you're right. I remember I saw hadn't seen St. for like twenty five years and he gave a talk here at the Lucille. Oh, Packard children's hospital, and it brought the Chicago Tribune review from nineteen Eighty-six six of our show at second city. It's picture of him and I and the other six people in the group and went up to him afterwards and showed in the picture. And he patted me on the back, you know, the CEO of Twitter, this slick, two thousand twelve, and he patted me on the back and said, I'm sorry, it didn't work out for you.
