Emmys 2020: Who won big at the first virtual ceremony

"Emmy's happened last night. The last couple days I want to say like through last week, there was some of the you know, technical Emmys and Creative arts Emmys and they've all been I've been seeing like the results of those, but these were the actual Actors and actresses and shows and You know the hole, but it was It was virtual, right? Yes. So every I think that they They actually put a show together to do the Emmys. Um But the other ones that I think we're just getting. I'm sure there was some kind of ceremony on zoom or something. But I don't know that those ones were televised. They might have been. No, I mean, look, I didn't I Maybe you mentioned it. Maybe I read. Maybe I didn't. It was a shock to me at whatever time nine o'clock last night when I started seeing the news roll through, and I was like Emmys. You talked about it a little remember? It was, you know, because Jimmy Kimmel was hosting and so there was some talk, but I play police. Li forgot about it and the whole thing so I didn't see one second of it. Oh, yeah, no. And, frankly, these days because of you, Khun DVR things I'd never sit and watch things in real time anyway, so Because who wants us in just to put the others on When I organize S O. The big winner last night is Schmidt's Creek. It's not the name of the show, but right The clothes. They were saying it on TV because I did see a clip after that. They were saying the word, but I don't want you don't want no trouble with you. Just don't I considered it. You know, it spells have pointed out that every time they say it, they had to put the actual words upon these people can read it with. Oh, right. You see, It's not what you think There's an extra tea and they've thrown at sea in there, okay? So I'm just gonna say Schmidt's creek because I'm with you. You know, whatever. I just guess Monday's gonna be hard enough, right? Yeah. What's our theme? We don't want to. We don't want no trouble. That's right. I keep forgetting the better. That's our theme. Well, since I should write that down here, put it up with all my little, you know, daily affirmations. So the Emmys was virtual And Schmidt's Creek swept in all this is it's actually quite amazing because it has never won an Emmy in any other season. Currently they're grand total of Emmy's up till this season when they took him all zero. It doesn't It seems to be a show that we used to have a million of them. And not that, you know. Ahh, that name in particular is obviously means that's a cable show, right? I mean, it's just It's not your Big four or whatever. But it's just a sitcom, and it's fun and it's and it's not that You could miss it, and you wouldn't care. But you could also sit down and watch four episodes on any given night and be like, Wow, that was light. It was easy is their thread that you follow along with? Yes, it's the family that has moved. Uh, I won't tell you the whole story. But yes, there's a story behind Why they're in this motel and Right off super rich. It's only that I find a just a life. Oh, poor things. Is that a Netflix show? It doesn't even say here. Oh, yeah, It's a Netflix. Yeah. So they won nine Emmys for their sixth and final season, including best comedy Siri's. It's a new record for most wins in a single season for a single comedy. Marvellous. Mrs. Mazel had had the record. They said it in 2018 with eight and then they got eight more in 2019. And I don't know if this means that Mrs Mazel was just completely shut out. Oh, end because all the comedy awards seemed to have gone to Schmidt's Creek. The cast swept the acting categories, and that's the first time a comedy Siri's has done that Eugene Levy and Catharine O'Hara won best actor and actress and Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy, one supporting actor and actress. And they're saying here that's never happened. So congratulations to them. Daniel Levy also set a record for most wins for an individual in a seat in a single season with four because he also got trophies for writing and directing and Best comedy Siri's because he's a producer. So he actually technically that four Just for himself personally. Zero m. He's heading into the night. They never had any kind of incredible. But I guess you know, with my cell dominating in the last couple of seasons would be hard for anyone to rack up any numbers. They also set a record last night at the Emmys for most wins by black actors, including Regina King and Yaya Abdul Mateen. Ah, The second for watchman. Ouzo Duba for Mrs America. And Zendaya for euphoria. She's also the youngest Emmy winner in this category. Outstanding lead actress for drama. Stop me. If you have pulled any audio for any of these things in particular, I pulled some furs and die a winning it Isa from Oakland, apparently which is why we wanted to make sure we've got her on. So here she is reacting. Yeah, it is her reacting and she says a couple of things, but just there's there's a party behind her. So I know that I just want to say thank you to the TV academy to all the other incredible women in this category. I I admire you all so much. This is, um Oh, this is pretty crazy. Didn't really crying, Okay? I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating. But I just want to see that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn't always feel like a great example of that. But there is hope in the other people, and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets. I see you. I'm are you I Thank you. And yeah, thank you so, so much. Um, this is thank you. And, of course, is through zoom. So right. Well, everyone was zooming in S O. She's the youngest any award winner for outstanding lead Actress for drama. So congratulations, Twos and Dia. And I guess I assumed that that party was happening in Oakland flatter know about that, But I do know she's she's pretty accomplished for such a young lady heard she's stars in Great America, the greatest showman Ohio. I want to say the great American hero. I don't know what she's in the great American. Ah, SOS and Dia. Congratulations to her. Eddie Murphy and Maya Rudolph one for Saturday Night Live, I guess for guest appearances and Ron Cephas Jones for this is us Eso Black actors Big night of record for most wins by black actors at the Emmys last night. The ceremony itself was obviously very different. Jimmy Kimmel hosted in an empty arena. Tried to fool us with crowd reactions from past ceremonies. Was anyone some of that? Yeah, sure. I'll watch a little of that. Oh watchmen. Also what Jerry Falwell Jr was into Flashing people appreciating and there's a flash of him in the audience. Then how much hilarious here that would mean that no one is in the audience. That would mean that I'm a lump here all alone. You'll see them. They turn the lights up. Just of course I'm here all alone. Of course. We don't have an audience. This isn't a mag a rally. It's the Emmys. Instead of a live audience.

But I don't know is it is this live TV? Both of you very well done. It's super cute. But the awkward, you know, three seconds of science, retired ruins everything before it does. We're very well acquainted with the awkward three seconds of silence, ruining everything. That is the life we're living right now. Anyway. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox and Lisa could row whether she just jetted home after 60 ft. Away appearance on the show the awards, though, as they handed these out So I'm not sure how exactly this happened.

I give credit to anybody who's trying to do a show right now. Absolutely. It's a pain in the butt, and you'll see why they could absolutely see why they went through with it. But I could also see if they said not this year, everyone where does it go ahead? Mail you your prize and Here's the announcement work and that and the example the best example of it is that three The five second lag between the friends and less like Jesus. What is that? That's that's live. That's national TV. That's international TV right now. Well, that's you know, that's the world. We're living in pin, right? Everything sucks. The best variety sketch. Siri's went to Saturday night live and actually have a little bit of news about that. The full cast from last year is coming back this year.

And it's coming back to Rockefeller Center studio for the first time since the shutdown. They are going toe put all kinds of safety protocols in place, but it looks like we're going to get actual I'm sure will be no audience. But it will be live apparently, and that will happen there at their normal studio. So they say. The last time there was no caste turnover between seasons was 07 when the 33rd season began with the ensemble intact, So everybody who you liked last year and everybody who didn't like last year We'll be back. That season 46 in playing Joe Biden. On Saturday night Live will be Jim Carrey. Oh, wow, really adding a big name to play one of the candidates. Ah, it looks like You know, they're saying it's gonna happen Ah for the for the debut, but they're basically safe in the 46 season, which debuts October 3rd.

So maybe they said we, you know, and we'll pay you and we'll put you up and you could be alone. Fancy shmancy penthouse in New York City. So they are adding three new featured players to their cast. They'll have a limited studio audience for the coming season, but it's going to it's going to happen.

Here are the 2020 Emmy Awards highlights

"So much nowadays traditional Glam, gathering of the EMMYS was shrunk down to a virtual version. This year, the winners had to dial in from their sofas but did to scale down show remove any of the fun while I'm joined by the phone critic Karen Cranach from welcome back Karen. Now, Jimmy Kimmel called this the pandemic. What was it like? You. Don't I was reading about the run up because of course, they had five days of the creative emmys, which was very interesting which covered documentarian sports things like that. We don't really get to see those its role waiting for the television ones television on comedy and they're all saying, oh, it's can be terrible to glitches and there were absolutely no. Glitches at all the writing was sensitive national it probably would have worked alive, and in fact, what they were doing is they were cutting back into the audience of previous years. So at first we thought Kimmel was presented to reluctance of couldn't be, and then of course, we see that it's an empty staple center with cardboard cutouts except one person Jason Bateman. It worked really really well, and as you said, he called the Pan Denny's. You can't have virus without a host modest M.. It. Last year it was host free. So he's making a double point there isn't he? Will he is I mean there is a discussion for all the wards shows that you know do we really need a host to carry through to give a a link King presents between all of the awards and sometimes you need that sometimes you don't, but he's very, very good in this effect was. Nominated himself didn't win but for for this year. So he solid reacted really well, and particularly with Jennifer Aniston was was there in I'm assuming was a prerecorded, extra it live. Where he's burning one of the emmy envelopes to sanitize it, and if the fire gets out of control, she actually does put put. The. Fire. Out on stage. Tell US little bit more than about. Who won who lost how things went? Arguably, this was possibly our final reminder. Some was that it was a blissful reminder of our recent past, but people could still make television in the same room. I think we're we're all I. Think we're we're going to get nostalgic about these virtual awards shows really because they could do so much more with with a with a regular live show somebody sends in a prerecorded or televisual link you feel cheated. Now you feel that you've got more possibility because the people can actually record something or talk to you live. So it Kinda works really well, for example, before I go to the awards there was almost apprentice reunion lease a Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and Lisa kudrow showed up altogether and Jimmy Kimmel's going what are you doing together and he goes she goes well, we've Jennifer says.

Leaker Jon Prosser Claims Apple Watch SE Will Launch Soon

"Now another dispatch from prediction land one we are likely to hear this week if it's actually a thing. called. The mark has prolific apple leaker John prosser calling for something like an Apple Watch as e. At probably not the name and the thing may not happen as I say. The name Apple Watch S E is being used as a sort of shorthand name for what's being rumored. Basically, an Apple Watch series four without the watches E C G Heart Monitor or always on display of Apple Watch series five. I'm not sure why apple would do that. Instead of what it usually does sell the latest and greatest at the top end with the watchman couple of years ago a less expensive alternative. Is One of those stories I dislike all we have to back it up prosser being prosser. Still, he's right about two thirds of the time according to the peace. So. This is the thing that's out there. And it may be a thing that we see tomorrow.

2020 Fall Movie Preview

"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow. She's the Russian assassin with no superpowers road just skills she's like the female Batman this Prequel looks back, Arjun story in it's a doozie forints pugh is there as Natasha, surrogate says sister and Rachel Vice is the leader of this black widow organization. It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times. Okay. Altogether now with me candyman candyman candyman candyman candyman, we did it. So I'm looking around here to see if some him up. Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel. Craig's fifth and final outing James Bond you know for my money Craig and Sean Connery are in dead heat for the best bond ever. This one directed by Kerry from Gonzaga who did true detective from Script Co written get this by sleeping bags phoebe Wall Rich Daniel Craig asks for her because he really wants a little feminist touch to this. This is the. Twenty fifth, all seven Cape and you know this is a record and we're GONNA lose Daniel Craig. But in the movie James Bond's been retired for five years and he gets called back in. You know that's what happens to everybody from the Godfather on. You know Bohemian Rhapsody oscar-winner. Rami ballot plays the facially scarred villain named SAFM and he's described the director as more dangerous than anyone bond has ever encounter. Man How about you?

"watchmen" Discussed on The Official Watchmen Podcast

"Craig Mazin, and this is the official watchmen podcast. Throughout all of my conversations with Damon Lindelof last year Damon kept bringing things back to the writer's room demon. Why? The writer's room is the core of the creative process and probably more. So for the way that I like to do it. Then some of my peers I cannot right by myself and more importantly a lot of writing happens in that room and I think by time script gets written, you may see one or two names on it, but every one of the episodes of watchmen including the pilot. was basically generated by conversations that came out of that room, and there's never been a more democratic room I think that sometimes a writer's room has to be a benevolent dictatorship. If decisions don't get made, you cannot move forwards at all watchmen was not that room. It was a jury room where you had to have unanimous excitement in order to move on and although that process I think was. I'll just say brutal and unpleasant. For for everybody in it when you arrived at that consensus and you knew that everybody was on board with that versus someone had been kind of bullied into it real magic happened if I may I just WanNa make sure I keep talking about this writer's room like as sort of a collective hive mind but it's actually individuals that make it up and so for that first twelve week phase where we did a tremendous amount of the world building, we figured out who will reeves was we figured out his connection to Bass Reeves. We figured out all the mechanics of the pilot and where the square the reins of. squids were coming from and that room was crystal Henry and Leila Biok and clercq Shell and Jeff Johnson and Tom Speedily nicu's Stacey Kuffour Cord Jefferson and Janine neighbors. Brandon Jacobs Jenkins, and we had an incredible writers Assistant Ryan Lipscomb who not only wrote down everything we said, but somehow arranged it into coherent thought and often pitched himself, and then for phase two and three Carly Rae basically came in just an incredible writer. You could literally spend an hour talking to any one of these individuals. So many of the great ideas that are watchmen did not come from my mind I was just smart enough to say that sounds cool. I'll never get to work with this group again because that's just not the way that the world works anymore where there are no more bands. It's sort of like we're all roving mercenaries, but the fact that we got to come together to make this show is something that I'm immensely.

Xbox they pointedly used the term consoles Klerl the first time they even mentioned Nexgen, and then when the xbox series x was officially announced, it was called the series x, which obviously implies that it is one of many but. Those teases there hasn't been much official word on what additional buying options will be available for the next generation of xbox but. Recently, we learned about something called the xbox series s from an unlikely source, the fine print on the packaging of an xbox one controller. Tom Warren reported on the xbox says asked for the verge and wrote the verge has obtained photos of Microsoft's new next Gen xbox controller in white complete with packaging that mentions the xbox series S. Twitter User Zach S was able to purchase the controller today and we've confirmed it is genuine. The new controller was sold on a resale site today, and the side of the packaging notes that the controller works with both xbox series x and xbox series s consoles Microsoft has not officially unveiled an xbox series s yet nor has the company even confirmed a white xbox series x controller a mysterious white xbox series x controller also appeared online last month complete with the new D pad texture triggers and new share button. This new league matches the previous. Controller League and retail packaging suggests that these could be appearing in stores. Soon, the XBOX series s will likely be Microsoft's second cheaper next Gen. xbox that's been code-named Lockhart a Microsoft document leaked back in. June. Shed some further light on the company's plans for to next Gen consoles. Microsoft's xbox series x Deaf Kit. code-named Dante allows game developers to enable a special lockhart mode that has a profile of the performance that Microsoft wants to hit with this second console. Then story is linked in the show notes. The rumors related to Lockhart which I think we are safe to rename the xbox series s at this point is that it is not as powerful as the xbox series x so it's probably going to be cheaper and it will probably focus on streaming using exe cloud. That's my assumption. Anyway I guess console manufacturers are now renewed value in multiple consoles skews working at game stop during the playstation three and xbox three sixty era I feel like people are generally just confused about the different buying options when it came to those consoles so. Then the playstation four and xbox one at launch. Basically each had one skew I. AM curious to see how people will react to the different playstation fives and different xbox series. Maybe, it won't confuse consumers at all especially since most purchasing as don online these days and it's just easier to do research in general or maybe it will create confusion again I don't know I. Guess we will find out at some point later this year you know it would really be nice to start saying an actual date soon I hope we learn about that. Injustice three may be on the way according to artist boss logic. This is firmly a rumor and far from a confirmation but artist boss logic who works in video games a lot. An recently did a live drawing the assassin's creed Valhalla cover art as a means of officially announcing the game for Yourself Sheridan image that just had the word injustice three stylized where the e at the end of justice is the number three and the dot on the second I was stylized to be Dr Manhattan symbol from watchmen, and it is all placed in front of a clock implying the potential game could feature watchmen characters. There's even the familiar watchmen smiley face floating around in the clock parts. Boss logic tagged Ed Boon in the tweet who is credited as the director of injustice to and is perhaps better known as one of the CO creators of mortal combat. It's really not clear what this is. Boss logic could have just mocked something up for fun as injustice fan he could just be sharing found image online and tagging ed boom to see what kind of reaction it creates or it could be totally legitimate. And tore you know maybe boss logic forgot how email works and. tweeted his to Ed Boon instead of sending it to him directly. It feels a little early to be talking about injustice three especially considering more combat eleven just came out last year and it's big DLC. Expansion was pretty recent to just a few months ago developer Nether Realm is a big team though capable of working on multiple projects at once. So it's not outside the realm of possibility that they would be ready to announce a new injustice game soon. It could be fully announced at the upcoming. DC. Fan Dome Event with maybe a plant twenty, twenty, one release that that would make sense.

More Shows To Watch If You Liked HBO's Watchmen

"We're GONNA talk about recommendations. I for the long haul and these are things that we are either current or in the way back and there's this you know the. He is like when I sit down to try find something there's so much going on that I spent like an hour being watched I don't WanNa Watch. That should do this and it's like I, just want someone tell me what to watch. That's what we're going to hear for. Yeah. So we're GONNA basis off the some of the nominees for best show in the emmy categories I start off with HBO's watchmen as from Damon Lindelof this set in an alternative universe and drafting off the ground and comic book watchmen is It's like this dazzling procedure designed to also make you think that twenty six emmy nominations, the most of any serious. Like NERF gun to your head best show of the year. What would you say? Oh, it's watchmen watchmen to me like for limited series. So it's an a different categories, but I would even say it's better than all dramas on I. Think. So it's it's crowning achievement of TV this. So for sharp for me, I'm I'm thinking of like I want a show that looks great. Visually also will make me think. So I I wanted to go directly off of Damon Lindelof because I feel like he's kind of peak of his powers right now. So guys are wondering like other stuff he's done and I I can't think about the leftovers it's a similarly. It's a great show. It's alternative universe incredibly well, made really thoughtful but also like very simplistic in terms of you applying it to your that feels like watchmen felt current but also set in a different time. And leftovers current but also sat in a different times. So I love that the weirdness of the masks in watchmen which was so precious. So yeah, it's it's. It's phenomenal the other one I was thinking of when I want to. Recommend a show in in that Washington vein I'll say Black Mirror it's close enough. It's not really narrative based. Yeah. It's vignettes and different standalone stories, but it's kind of an alternate. Reality it looks close enough to realize that you're not sure that it's not. Yeah. But it's also telling us some darkened weird stuff about yourself. And the good thing about Black Mirror is to watch it. You're not watching it in each episode is its own Y'all episode so That's will put like some of our own favorite episodes that we both have really loved that we can include in the note. So you don't have to wonder because listen that first episode it's Just you just need to skip it. Hear me if you don't hear anything else if you don't hear Jamie doing the weird change of momentum at the beginning of the show if you forgot that already that's okay. Forget it. Here me this do not watch the first episode. Mom Don't do it dad don't do it much mom don't do it nobody do. It. Would be a mistake. Okay. It's a for me. If you love watchmen where you're like, that seems like it's good. Let me tell you to other shows that are good. So on that flakes, you can watch Jessica Jones I chose this because you got strong female lead just like you have in watchman, you have a superhero component which you also have and Jessica Jones it's dark. It's Gritty the villain in Jessica Jones is played by David tennant in that first season and he is per faction it keeps you on your toes. It's also very you're very to the visuals also recommending legion. Hulu. That's weird. Right because I think when you watch watchman, you're like I'm confused. Limits where you're like I, need to watch this again. Being, existing Ip it makes you think should I know that and I can confirm I. Didn't know. And watchmen I would sometimes read like recaps after I. Would Watch an episode and that would help me catch things maybe that I didn't grab the first time with Legion stars Dan Stevens? Famous playing. Matthew on. Downton Abbey He. It's a done by Noah. All Superhero Jason because this is the story of professor x his incredibly powerful, mentally ill mutant sign and so it's it also stars Jean Smart who is also in watchmen man she's in a Lotta. Golf that she has very good taste, and so it's weird enough that you're like It's not that classic Superhero which is what I also like about watchmen if we had done if we'd time traveled and done a designing women saying draft Jean Smart would not be my. Number. One pick would be any pots it would be we'll for private. Not. It be any pods, Anthony Delta Burke Julia sugarbakers. dixie Carter lab next to last over Jean Smart. Yeah. My point here is everyone would have been before Jean Smart Jean Smart was second. I'm going to be in Sweet Home Alabama and you're not going to know what to do with the low key cares. Okay.

"watchmen" Discussed on The Official Watchmen Podcast

"Hello and welcome. My name is Craig Mazin. And this is the third and final. Episode of the official watchmen. PODCAST I'm here. As always with Damon Lindelof the executive producer and writer of watchmen and today at long long last. You like us know everything and I should warn you. If you don't know everything you haven't seen every episode of watchmen yet. Please turn this off. Especially the tenth episode need to see the tenth episode. There's no tenth episode but there are nine incredible episodes. Make sure you've watched all them and I think think also if you haven't listened to the first two episodes of this podcast definitely worth a listen to before we get to this one. We are going to be unpacking everything we are going going to be analyzing everything we're going to be talking about the big finish now. I can just jump to the end if you want. I could just go right to them and start saying okay. Does this this meanness does. This mean this but I'm not going to do that. I I will eventually get to those but I like to UNWRAP. These gifts. Slowly are three episodes that we're covering here episode. Seven eight and nine nine are entitled an almost religious. Aw a god walks into a bar and the final episode. See how they fly. The series stories managed to throw dozens and dozens and dozens of balls into the air. And not only did they all land beautifully but everything turned out to be intentional. Everything had purpose. Everything added up and that is Beautiful it's a beautiful thing when the equation balances out and you know. I asked you last time. We spoke what. What was your sense of how things are going? What's your sense of how things went? Can you feel about what you've accomplished now that it's done done well. I'm immensely proud of the show. I've I've talked a lot of I apologize for my stammering because I'm I'm still processing. And the experience of making the show overlapped period of the show starting to air. We were finally viz effect shots and working on the sound in the music. All the way up until basically Thanksgiving so I've had maybe nine or ten days as the conversation that we're having right now to be finished finished with it and so I'm still processing so I'm immensely proud of the show on a on a subatomic level. All writers want is to communicate this thing inside out of us that we can't quite verbalize can only verbalize it through our storytelling. And so you don't know what that is when you first start you feel that that that glimmer twinkle of inspiration Spiratou of I have something to say. And then basically spent two years of my life figuring out what that wanted to be and then as that effort became more collaborative the show stopped feeling like mine. It started feeling like ours. The second most important thing if not the most important thing was that when these nine episodes were all said and done whether people love them or hate them that the general consensus would be. This guy really loves watchman and his. His intention was clear that he wanted the show to earn. The name watchmen. It had to be watchman for people who have had a thirty year. Relationship with watchmen like I have or came to it later. People who have a pre existing relationship with this who may have watched the show with their arms crossed from jump which is how I would have been watching it had I not been making making it if their arms gradually sort of unfolded. I don't need them to be clapping at the end. But if they made it to the end of episode nine in her sort of like okay this thing can call. Itself Self Watchmen. That was the brass ring. And I don't know right now whether or not that's going to be the mass consensus or what the mass consensus even even is any more in the pop culture. But I am sort of feeling right now at this moment in time like this thing is in conversation with the original watchman you you can call it a sequel. You can call it in Oman but it's not a cover band like it tapped into that same kind of energy that launched the original. Its Own thing but that's the thing that I wanted most under my Christmas tree. Well you are allowed to be proud and it strikes me that you saw something as a kid. Did in watchmen that you really admired that you loved and one need decided. I think I'm going to go create some life of my own and you did. I WANNA get into our first episode here an almost religious awe. And we're GONNA talk about Fema Lot here because as I arrived at the end of this show I kept finding in these loops of themes that were going through and recurring over and over and here. We see the Millennium Clock. We're not quite sure what it's going to do yet. That is ticking. Down to an event you talk a little bit about how you guys thought of time as an element in a show called watchman. I think that anybody who's ever been in a writer's room and engage in that collaborative process. You spend hours and hours and hours and hours talking about theme and ideas and you interrogate gate. Why you're doing this? You talk about things that are interesting to you etc.. And then it comes time where the Buzzer goes off and you just have to write the story but hopefully the audience can feel all the conversations that you had. I've talked about this with you before. which is we made? The sort of recipe list of adjectives that we would use to describe. The original watchmen are also also plot ideas the Matt visual ideas like the Smiley face it Cetera. But we also knew that we had to sort of invent our own. So it's like we did a smiley face in the pilot but then we were like we have to start to find our our own motif. So maybe that's going to be an egg and the reason that it's GonNa be an egg is gonNA set up something that we're doing in the finale so it all comes together but it screenwriting one. Oh one that you need to have a ticking clock and if you try to avoid it in the third act of a movie if you're doing any kind of particularly this genre right Superhero Asura or sci-fi it's like you always want to avoid it and so it kind of felt like one of the narrative postive necessities of this show was setting up in the pilot that the seventh cavalry had a plan and that their plan was gonna come to fruition in the end game of the series and that was going to be one the things that was just sort of powering things through and on the heels of that revelation was the idea of God. We don't WanNa do that. You know like is there a way to subvert that idea the cavalry is going to have a plan but what if someone has already figured out a way to decimate their plan. What if the cavalry's plan is secondary to someone else's plan and then per the the clock idea? I think that the ideas like it's not watchmen if you aren't constantly referring to clocks and so that is going to be a motif and how can we make o'clock in emotional no idea for many of the characters and kind of went from there. Well in general I think one of the things you guys do so well is considered what is expected. And then lean in into it. Only because you're using misdirection. It's a a really useful technique but only when it's well done as we have progressed through the series. It's not like we have detached from what I think is the main theme which is race And there is a moment in the story where we're getting Angeles story and Angela a bar. There is this not well known comic called Ibar Black Superman. It's a it's actually a black station film. Oh to fill. Yeah Yeah Oh comic. It's no Not Not if there should be a comic of it well there might be now. Yeah exactly and so. That was intentional. Yes this is one of the hidden little bits here and that is mirrored by something that happens in this episode. We see Young Angela. She's a little girl. She's living in Saigon with her parents. The wars concluded America Echo has won because of Dr Manhattan's intervention and. She is trying to rent a movie..

"There's a lot of good superhero hero movies and TV out there and I watch all that Shit. I watch it. Because they can be a fun and Kinda fantastical way to explore how we think about the problems and fixes for society but watchman taste that idea and puts in fucking steroids. It's smart challenging managing funny and delightfully dark so before we can get into just why and how this show blew my mind. I need to give you a bit of back store the TV show is based on the watchmen. Comic it's one of the most popular graphic novels of all time. It set in his pretty crazy alternate reality president. Nixon never resigned world. War Three was void because a giant squid fell on New New York City and regular people have been putting on mass to fight crime since the nineteen thirties but the TV show picks up today in twenty nine hundred nineteen focusing on the origin story of one loan hero and her name is Angela. Tesla Abar Angeles play by the Legendary Regina King and yes that means that this show is all about a black woman that that alone is fucking rare. She's supposedly a Baker by day but at night. She's a mass detective sister night black sale. I know her costume is really cool. Kind of bad ass. None Outfit but Regina Kings nine isn't saving souls. She's laying hands cavalry involved off shooting last night and I don't get a little bighorn until two hours ago. We were still working the scene it was late. You're going to give me the speech now. What speech about how I'm over reacting by calling article for should calm down and take a breath for organ? There's a guy in my trunk. Think I knew you were going to tell us around at the likely. He's got to jump on things in this world. Most cops apps where mass which is pretty fucking weird but they put on the mask to protect their identities while they track down and investigate members of this villainous. White Supremacist Group. Are you a member of or do you associate with members out white supremacist organization. Seven Kevin do you believe that trans dimensional attacks or hoaxes stage by the US government. Maybe show has all the wild fund comic book tropes that I love but when it comes to its exploration of the racism that black people have always experienced reinstate. The show feels very different from anything. I've seen there's this one scene from the latest episode shows a lynching but they show it through the eyes I of the black person experiencing it. That is not something you see. Every day in television even dramatic television at particularly not from the angle. We you shot it in court Jefferson. He wrote last night's explosive episodes six along with the show's creator Damon Lindelof we shoot it in the perspective of somebody being lynched inched through that that point of view as the as the dark who goes over there is there the raised into the into the sky and and choking them choking.

"And also you know you can think about this. In the larger context of CON- Yays dog attempt to break into you know sort of high culture to sort of do something that he's putatively been told he can't or shouldn't do which. That's kind of thrilling rolling. That's an interesting animating impulse but not much follow-through you and the times classical music critic marks. WED had this conversation in the paper and it feels like both of you are trying to figure out if it actually was opera. How you define opera? It seems really hard to categorize what it was that you guys saw Maher had some great points which was that opera is open to all kinds of interpretation. I didn't know the opera. The the word in Latin just means works artistic works. That's cool that's Creatively liberating but other other people have sort of said that no this is actually an Oratorio because it was just sort of reciting Bible verses as the music and the sort of downsizing went on sort of next to him so. I don't know I like the idea that it it disrupts what we think of as an opera but I also don't know how purposeful houser willful that disruption even was. I think it's probably impossible to know what's in the mind of Kanye West Con. You may not even know. Oh but I want to ask you about this whole recent embracing of religion. He recently did a Sunday service program with a televangelist Joel hosting osteen and there was a quote in the Washington Post from Jonathan Walton. Who was the dean of the wake forest divinity school who said Connie West and Joel Odeen or a match made aide in market-driven Heaven? The communion table has become a merch table. And I'm wondering if you felt the same way that may be part of this. This is as much a commercial play as it is. Maybe a spiritual reawakening for sure. I mean if you've seen Sunday service. You can't help but be struck by the fact that this is a commercial enterprise but also the sort of worship of Konya himself itself. What you come away with is that the whole thing is built around hung yea being worshipped by the audience last night at the Hollywood bowl? There's a part of the show where dozens maybe hundreds of rude figures. Who are part of the show? Came down the aisles but then Kenya in the on stage like everybody in the audience you know. Put your arms up and so you know people do and these robed figures do as well. It was pretty colty. You know what I mean. I don't I don't WanNA use that word lightly but it was pretty colty but again like what is the cult. What is the belief system? Here I don't know Michael. Wood is the pop music critic at the L. A. Times Michael. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thank you coming up on the frame. HBO's watchmen had a pivotal episode last night the series Creator and the episodes director.

"From the broadcast center. KPCC it's the frame. I'm John Horn on today's show. Kanye west takes his operatic vision into the Hollywood bowl. Then the graphic novel watchmen explored good. Nevil through a dark satire of superheroes the HBO series has its eye on another target. One of this country's original sends audiences are used to the idea. That guy is going to fight against the bad guy and prevail when the bad guy is the institution of supremacy honestly. The good guy is not going to an episode nine season one spoiler alert white supremacy is not defeated and the Grammy Museum expand the gallery that dedicated dedicated to Latin music. All that coming up on the frank welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn on Sunday evening. Gene fans of rapper. Kanye West gathered at the Hollywood bowl to see and hear the artist latest venture. It's an opera based on the biblical story of a Babylonian King. This comes on the heels of Connie's most recent album called Jesus is king in a series of Sunday services. He's been mounting at various locations nations. La Times pop music critic. Michael Wood was at the Hollywood bowl and he says the cast and crew could have used a little more time to get ready. This thing was down to the minute I mean look. I've been to the Hollywood bowl a jillion times. I have never seen through the gate in the back Sawdust all over the place. They were constructing something that I think when I saw it later come out in. The show is like some sort of long feasting table. You could hear what was either. There's soundcheck or just indeed Konya like finishing writing the opera like they didn't even let people in till however long past doors supposed to open and you could hear them working on on the opera inside so even if the paint was dripping wet. Did you get an idea of what it was that he he was after because it feels like it was not finished but maybe there was a germ of an idea at the center of it. Yeah that's fair to say. Say Look you you want to be charitable somebody WHO's trying his hand at a new form but I think maybe somebody said opera to Connie a and he said yeah. That's the ticket. Nothing about this. Felt like he had anything to say that required opera as the form to say it in. I think that the story such as it was was not really considered I mean the whole thing was just sort of grabbing I from what we think of as opera and just sort of pushing them altogether. How does this fit into some of the other things that Kanye has been doing doing recently including Sunday service and his Jesus is king album? Obviously there's the sort of religious content which connects to the album. Jesus as King Album which connects to Sunday service.

"watchmen" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"Terms and exclusions apply capital one and a welcome back you just met Glen Weldon of the NPR desk joining us. Today is the culture critic for the undefeated Suraya McDonnell Seraya Alot. It has taken. It has taken US way too long to get you on the show and I'm so happy that you're here we also also have with us. She's an executive producer at stitcher. Daisy Rosario our buddy daisy daisy. Glad to have you highland US happy to be here before we get too deeply into to this. Let's let's set the stage. A little. Bit More watchmen takes place in essentially an alternate history United States. Where somethings something are the same? But some things are different. Some of the show is set in Tulsa. Oklahoma in the opening sequence retails the real story of the looting being and burning of the prosperous black business district known as Black Wall Street in Tulsa in nineteen twenty one but when we come to the present where the show is set we we learned that the United States won the Vietnam War so Vietnam as a state and Robert Redford is president which they have a lot of fun with At times the show is is pretty stingy with information at first but that initial story is about the fact that in this version of the world. The police wear masks asks to hide their identities. And their primary antagonists are white supremacists. Glenn help us locate ourselves all right. It is hard to overstate how deeply the original comic. Kinda hit me came out when I was eighteen years old and going to college And it hit me so hard I guess. Because it was interrogating superhero idea. In a way that then was novel it is no longer novel and it hit me and a lot of people of my generation exactly the same way because you can tell because that. Ah I dea which is essentially what if superheroes no but for real though. That's that's A. That's the premise of this show. That quickly became a well. The people kept going back to over and over again long after it dried up The two thousand nine hundred Satterfield. Did what a lot of people comics community do. They treated watchmen the comic as a sacred texts and just reproduced. It almost shot for shot and got the tone wrong. Got The meaning wrong. which is let's take This superhero idea which just black and white you know good versus evil and just insert nuance into it. That's something that the movie did not do in any meaningful way. The show happily for me uses the original comic as a jumping off point and a jumps squarely onto with both feet. The third rail of American culture which is race and police brutality thirty. I'm fascinated by this. I admire its fearlessness. Because it does insert nuance much-needed Nuance episode by episode. It just gets more complicated needed and complex and and hard to still. And that's why they get so much. We do have a clip of Damon. Lindelof who created the show was also one of the creators of lost and the leftovers and A lot of other cool things and he talks to morning edition about the decision to focus this show on race and we actually brought a clip of that. At at the time that I was sort of coach to consider rethinking watchmen. I had to answer the question. What is the pervasive sort of anxiety in America right now and and it was impossible as all these things were happening not just Charlottesville but everything was happening through the Lens of race and it felt like there was a great reckoning happening our country overdue and necessary? Sorry this idea. That watchmen has always been about the history that has been kind of hidden and camouflaged and also it's about the pain and trauma that is sort of buried in the American consciousness consciousness and I started to feel like it was incredibly important to tell a story about race To tell a story about race in the context of a political tax taxed in two thousand nineteen almost felt borderline irresponsible so those are lindelof thoughts so critics have seen and we have all seen the first six episodes that's what HBO provided The first as we tape this the first three have aired so obviously we're not going to spoil anything out of the three we haven't seen but after seeing those six Ri- are you wrote. A great piece about watchmen in which you talked about that you really liked and admired it. Yes absolutely one because is it actually feels so different from anything else. That's that's on television right now Both in just the the way that it approaches its storytelling which is so strange and deliberately strange and immersive and so committed to who like imagining and building out this alternate America but also because of this really detailed focus on run the role that race. Racism plays in American history by starting out with the Tulsa Race massacre of nineteen twenty one and and then continuing to build off of that To the point that now I think we're going to start. Seeing an exploration of intergenerational trauma which was one of the things that I just really loved so much about transparent the way that show uses intergenerational interracial trauma to talk about all these different aspects of Jewish culture seeing that sort of unfold watchmen just made my heart grow several several sizes. Yeah and you know you mentioned and I felt this to that. First opening sequence sat at the Tulsa race massacre makes a a large promise. I think to kind of justify the use of that imagery and make sure it doesn't feel exploitive and I felt like ultimately particularly Louis by the end of these six. They absolutely got there and I got the feeling that you thought they got there too. Oh yes definitely Because I like that is you. You know a legitimate worried that if you decide to deploy something that so horribly traumatic and violent violent. What is the reasoning for this like? Is there going to be any sort of payoff or is this just being treated as like. Hey here's like another thing that happened in American history and we're not actually going to examine trauma for the sake of kind of showing how daring you are exactly. I don't get the feeling that that's what this this show is doing at all And if that wasn't like that's a big enough challenge on. Its Own. But that on top of that Damon has also decided to fold then Oklahoma. The musical and I do. I remind me to come back to Sarai about Oklahoma the musical because I wanna get to daisy but then I wanna come back and talk about Oklahoma. They don't let me forget Daisy Rosaria. Tell me what you think about watchmen. I would start by saying yes. We are not going to spoil anything but boy am. I glad they gave six six minutes. So this show is ambitious and I feel like you know when I look at some of the things people have been saying particularly response to just the first three. The episodes have aired. I think concerns that I saw some of which you know things that Seraya just address. I understand why people have those concerns but you gotta stick with it and it really i. Do you think it pays off. It's fascinating watchmen the original series of comic books. And thus the graphic novel really is this like all sprawling rolling like massive landmark thing that exists in our minds above us as you know. has this reputation that is just so hard to live up to I don't I know that I've ever said anything positive about Zack Snyder. On the show even while never being on an episode out anything. He's made just find a way to work in acknowledging aging that I don't think he's ever actually understood this material of anything he's ever made I stand by that assessment of the movie But my goodness I think that while Oh people are so afraid that this This series will not respect the source material. I think it respects the source material. More than anything we've ever seen come out of any kind of Relations watchmen before and that's amazing but I also didn't completely feel that way until I got through all six episodes. So if if you are listening to this if you're on the fence if you're only three episodes in and you're not short absolutely stick with it but it to me. This is what I would love to see if people are going to go back to things that we already know is update them respectfully. Think about them in creative ways really look at what the core is that worked. It's for us and grabbed us. As as people you know years ago in the things I came out I mean that aspect of it really just knocked me out you know and I think that you can also so I think many people have probably rightly made the point many times That the original watchman one of the faults of it is that it doesn't acknowledge race in any meaningful way and you can't really look in American Society without acknowledging the Lens of race and so I feel like also the first three episodes alone especially the first to really make it feel like that will be only focus and watching all six. I I really feel like this is a complex look at American American culture because American culture is complex of this one gets that you can't talk about it without that but it is not only focusing on that it is taking all of the things things that we know from all of the questions that we know from the original and I think genuinely updating them for our times yeah and you know one of the things that makes me think about when we have this conversation station about. How do you adapt? And how do you. Update is weirdly having seen the original Broadway cast of Hamilton I when it began to tour for and also when the Broadway cast turned over one of the things that occurred to me was that was a good way to be reminded that it's not just a performance is that it was great to see but that it was a work of authorship and I think when you take something like watchmen if you demonstrate that you can update the ideas of it to respond in two different contemporary things what you're respecting is the fact that it's hip. It's a bigger idea and that idea can bend and adapt upped and and have new shape and I think it reminded me a little bit too of Spiderman into the spider verse in the sense that miles is a different different spider man. That's a different idea. But it still spider man and then that film has different points of Focus and Spends this energy in different ways but it still operating with that idea of of Spiderman and I also want to say we haven't talked about it too much yet but I just I think the performance in this show are so fantastic. I mean I think Regina King is is having this wonderful phase of her career where she's getting a ton honey great roles and she's great in all of them. I did not see the big year. That Don Johnson is having coming. I think he's pretty. He's a pretty goodness he's also very very funny and knives out which is coming out soon and I think that you you know as you go through no Louis Gossett. Junior is in this They're such a big terrific cast and then with the episode three. The addition of Jean Smart happens on the show in so many meaningful ways with wonderful performance comments but also real solid connections at last to the to the comic that Are there for people like me..

"Seen from trailers so there's like legions of a police kind of shock your Roszak Matt's yet is it looks as though is going to be more of a cultural movement I'm seeing I'm kind of getting the feeling of things like V. indebtedness style which is another comic movies trope isn't like the villain inspires leads to imitate recording this and the the joker has absolutely yeah effectively I think what the extrapolating the watchman World Yeah and I believe Adrian Vitus still alive in this as I believe so edged by played by Matthew Good in the movie and the style of young Mr Burns from the simpsons and again not to get what you about pivotal to the narrative and not not in a way that you'd expect he's still around he's played by Jeremy Irons let's go let's go through the cast so we have got Francis Fischer who's playing Jane cruelty we've got Louis Louis Gossett Juniors playing will reeves Andrew Howard who's red scare very fear those names anything from the world of watchmen for major invite so the suggestion at the end of the original series both in comics and movies that we're going into a peaceful world there and it's going to be peaceful on a balance of terror that we are going to be so terrified by external threat the war will seem pointless in the divisions between the Communist Eastern and capitalist West will dissolve actually we saw in real life was a huge external threat came in and actually occurred in New York in two thousand one that didn't bring the world together at all so in that respect the TV series may be awesome thing there's there's there's one mention of Rohrschack throughout the whole of this cussedness and asked Kota Rule Shot God they implications for the trailers I saw was that essentially you know Rohrschack is the US become emblem of the private police that that's I'm which is interesting because Roy sharks moral dimension which is which is more black and what they can possibly imagine you either obeying the law or you you deserve to be thrown down a lift shaft you can very much say that contemporary ideas from authoritarian populists look at duets I I'd shoot a drug dealer myself listened to chocolates shoot illegal immigrants in the knee look at pre he pal we won't criminals to Farrell's Roszak is a powerful individual because he is an archetype it's an immature teenage type of like you know what if I was in judge on really kicks acid locker we give all the homeless houses yeah yeah well actually companies just light machine-gun everybody we disagree with neo-fascist I believe in his opponent point in watchmen weather discussing the comedian the fake the character he's murdered or the star and he's basically a government black ops individual commits atrocities across Vietnam across the world I think Nitel is dying well you know Edward Blake the comedian the guy was practically a Nazi and Russia says he stood up for what he believed in Anita Gt amongst all Nazi too I think before we recorded this you're watching this alongside is a proxy who's your eyes and is it rural shut there's an innate reason why Russia is the narrator because for route one third or rather our proxy because he doesn't rateable he's not are is because we're GONNA one third to half of the port we'd actually don't know who he is now discover to our surprise somebody that wait relatively familiar with I think this is the the the book the Comex have kind of a Greek chorus of regular joes uh-huh who comment on the action describe what's going on they don't really appear in the movie because he's already two hundred and forty five minutes long it feels like it as well it does yeah so we don't have in the movie what we have in the comment which is a guy new stand on the kid reading the comics by the Nissan who come in and discuss things we also hop in and out of newsrooms as people discuss what's going on there for me that in in the movie and the comic there isn't really a point of view there isn't an character that we identify with them we follow through the story there's no one consistent character that is in every scene of the action for instance from the the case you think they'll have to put that character into the series now because I think we all know ballistic television now is so well adopted an audience is so well adapted to multicolored uh-huh multi strong narrative but don't need your hand holding anybody you can if you can follow game of thrones if you can follow breaking bad if you can follow Reseda that these things he's population but if you can follow madman you can follow this the person in charge of Asia watchmen is the daddy of complexity polarized a lot of people with lost I loved it even the ending I was fully on board allow Hurley and still with us but there are a lot of eyebrows raised when he was given the Gig I mean I on looking forward to but I don't think he's going to be I mean take something like Westworld for instance which is so uncompromising interns of its narrative and expects the audience to do a hell of a lot of heavy lifting yet I think there's going to do you think that is GonNa be the same here I hope so because I don't want to you know I think one one thing that's happened since the comic and there's action item of in two thousand and is that the world is not just acculturated to superheroes that he's no longer weird ned will that people understand these off on man aw Captain America's Spiderman these are some of the most well known characters in the entire world now not just what they look like but also the psychological motivations and who they are so people are acculturated Oh cultures it's complicated television no I mean I'm not I'm not suggesting it's in the wrong way guy and this is what the movies are so unsatisfying these tim is really all you got and actually everything into is you have to trumpcare character arcs flatten everything out make the most complex and we may find I hope we finally get in that Terry Gilliam visioned the true complexity that I have an issue with making a sequel to this at all I think it was a story that ended perfectly irk me it's a bit like saying well why I'm next in the world inlets what'd you need to happen as he could guard so either this ends up being like a five series story of basically an elongated version of the doc or more likely what I think will happen is that the end of the first season ended this the ending that we kind of vaguely about ah that it brunches awful untold but you know I'm under the impression that it is actually a continuation of the movie world right so it's not a it's not is actually not a reboot it is an arm's length sequel in that it's it's not a cycle in the sense I'm sorry I didn't know that this impression I get we can keep going with that okay Yacky the impression I've got for the very very limited stuff that's come out she no you'd have to be like we're both got little bits of infant program to do this pretending that we know nothing because generally if you go steaming in saying this because I wanted to you know like I said I've got an issue with them doing it at all because it's a bit like it's a bit like what just to the left of the Mona Lisa. What did he miss a house you know what happened to her the next day yeah what how much he wasn't smiling happy I think it's a little bit slutty but disrespect actually DC comics have just done their own sequel called Doomsday clock which is immensely crass and unpleasant because what they do is they take the characters the Watchmen Universe and using comic book all G. T. potent across into the superman and Batman so they're just pieces of I pay so Dr there's not just another superior running around so if you know elevating cities and teleporting people into the Sundays so you've taken some of the most real characters to come out of comic books I don't think the most really the movie realization of the Marvel Castle most human and believable but some of them Icefield cactus and you've kind of reduced them to the level of just another member of the just the Society of America's I'll find that I thought that was kind of insulting to Alamos original idea this I'm hoping because I read what Lindelof is said and he's clearly.
