When is a reboot not a good idea? That’s what we debate with the next chapter of the Sex and the City series And Just Like That… Should that series have stayed an idea? We’ve also got debate on the reuse of tropes and storylines on the soaps, and when networks should cut ties with creative teams that aren’t cutting it. A Euphoria star sparks debate about the hypocrisy of respectability of nude scenes when it comes to women and more!
Podcast 109 | “And Just Like That…The Mess”
Produced by Johnathon K.
Hosts: Ryan White, Coryon Gray, Jonathon K., and Ashley Dionne
Taped: January 27, 2021
Daytime Section [Timestamp 03:40]: The reusing of tropes and storylines. This was submitted to us by @Tres_Natalie. She says, “I never thought about it, I just took for granted that soaps reuse storylines all the time. But the biggest complaint I read on Twitter is how couples/characters keep “copying” others. Is it just hate or a legit complaint?” What does the panel think? Also: When should networks cut ties with their soap creatives?
Primetime Section [Timestamp 22:50]: The new trailer for FX’s Snowfall; ABC scores monumental ratings for Abbott Elementary; Peacock signs Julie Plec after posting $1.7B loss; why you should be watching Showtime’s Yellowjackets; Ryan and Ashley debate the quality and purpose of the HBO Max Sex and the City spin-off And Just Like That…
Trending / Entertainment News Section [Timestamp 55:00]: Tucker Carlson (and Johnathon) don’t find the Green M&M sexy anymore. Why is this even a thing? America is going to die eating McDonalds creations — the new McDonalds menu is an abomination. Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney’s comments about requesting fewer nude scenes leads to a larger discussion about the hypocritical nature of respectability for men vs. women doing nude scenes.
Current Events Section [Timestamp 01:18:20]: The mysterious death of Connecticut resident Lauren Smith Fields and the disastrous handling of her case by the police department. The lack of media coverage for this case is appalling; Celebrity Big Brother castings; Pokemon nerds get it — Arceus is upon us!
Free-For-All Section [Timestamp 01:44:00]: Tasha K and the business of lies for profit on YouTube.
