\\ "Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down..." \\
On this installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!, Talley and Doofin (who's doped up and down a finger) discuss the mostly-good nostalgic escapism that is Steven Spielberg's big screen adaptation of Ernest Cline's READY PLAYER ONE, as well as the greatness of both a Spielberg chase sequence and said director's recent secret weapon, Mark Rylance. As is the norm, they also spout off some misinformation, including mistaking actor Derek Luke's roles more than once and referring to Marvel's 'Secret Wars' story arc when they (Talley) meant 'Secret Invasion.'
The second half gets a little sopabox-y (which is also par for the course), with the gents choosing not to watch the Roseanne reboot; showing reverence for greats like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mister Fred Rogers, and Roger Ebert; and wondering how America got to a place where empathy and kindness is a political stance that has to be defended. Take the sticky buns, but leave the aioli with them on episode 25!
