This week’s selection was originally Billy Madison to coincide with the beginning of the school year, but I vetoed that pick and offered Rodney Dangerfield’s Back to School instead. Steve decided a fourth option was best and opted for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 kiddie classic for reasons explained in the episode. Its equal parts heart warming and WTF, but mostly a fun, wild ride of genre blending, nostalgic importance.
The episode in which my car gets broken into again, The Muppets are playing Outside Lands, Seth Rogen is adapting another comic book for TV, Warners has decided in favor of more DC instead of risks, Marvel is going to Freeform and Sony, while not staying true to itself, reactions to Rogue One’s first trailer, Starz joins the OTT train, and 4K UHD Blu-rays are becoming a clearer picture. Plus, sports broadcasting on Twitter and Yahoo/the latter being acquired, VR being used for real world applications, Pharrell is producing Hidden Figures, Charlize Theron re-teaming with past directors, and Caitlyn Jenner appearing on Transparent.
