133 – Amazon’s The Tick with Returning Guest Griffin Newman!

the-tick-pilot-griffin-newman

This week, Joanna is mysteriously gone as Patches, David and Da7e wrap up the summer. Starting off with a discussion about a series of tweets about original summer movies from author Mark Harris and transitioning into a short list of Summer Superlatives (like the best performance). Then, since he’s basically the star of Amazon’s The Tick pilot (where he plays Arthur the sidekick), we thought it’d be great to have Griffin Newman back on the show (he was on Episode 19 back when Draft Day was out). The guys probe Griffin to get the EXCLUSIVE on his history with ticks, then some really cool information on how he ended up in this version of The Tick.

Plus a "bad" mini segment

This week, Patches, Joanna, David and Da7e wake up to find themselves in a world where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 & 2 is published Potter canon. Then, Patches wants to talk about the trend of "Bad" movies after disliking Bad Moms. The bulk of the podcast is spent debating just how much (if at all) a person can separate their politics from viewing and discussing a movie. It doesn't get super specific about the politics side, we know you hate it when we do that.
