The Toy Department – Episode 144


In Episode 144, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky jinx the possibility of doing a short show by talking about doing a short show (THE FIRST RULE OF SHORT SHOWS IS— oh, nevermind) and then bring their signature verbosity to bear on:

  • A season wrap-up discussion of MTV’s The Challenge: Final Reckoning (1:35), which the guys agree is a prime specimen of well-executed reality television…
  • Trevor Noah’s new Netflix stand-up special Son of Patricia (21:45) and how it didn’t really connect too well with either of our hosts…
  • Netflix’s Coen Brothers “film” The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (26:35) and how the bro’s still bring it, even if neither Madden nor Kolsky loved everything about it…
  • AMC’s new limited series Little Drummer Girl (36:25) and the disagreement between Kolsky and Madden on its level of quality and charm…
  • Homework for next week (49:40), including: the films The Frontrunner and Creed II, the Netflix drama Narcos: Mexico and Anderson .Paak’s new album Oxnard, plus whatever else the guys come up with during the course of the week…
