This week Matt took his protein pills and put his helmet on for the first ThingPod solo spacewalk. He does a quick recap on all things Oscars, shares his reservations on the second coming of Jesus (Quintana), checks in on the lurking HBO leviathan The Outsider, and more Things Just In.
For this week’s Thing of the Week, Matt breaks down the Ed Norton passion project Motherless Brooklyn and why the world is better for it. Have a listen, can you hear him, Major Tom…Can you hear him, Major Tom…
The boys are back from space to bring you The Thing! Eric and Matt talk Radiohead Spotify surprises, check-in on HBO’s horror drama hit The Outsider, and the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm (according to Eric, just prettaaaay, prettaaaay, prettaaaay, good).
For the Thing of the Week, we keep the Oscar best picture theme rolling with a discussion on Bong Joon-ho directed phenomenon Parasite. It’s a great talk on an absolute roller coaster of a movie that blew our minds. So come out of the bunker and have a listen, it’s safe…we promise.
As 2019 comes to a close, the boys are back to roll out the red carpet and announce the inaugural, annual Thingie Awards!
