The Toy Department – Episode 146


In Episode 146, Derek Madden and briefly discuss Madden’s trip to LA to see some music before:

  • The new season of Top Chef (5:50) and the most enjoyable characters in the premiere episode… 
  • Season 2 of Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (18:35) and how the show remains an utter delight (despite a few nits to pick)… 
  • A wrap-up discussion of Amazon’s Homecoming (27:00), how it left each of the guys feeling and whether there’s interest in another season…
  • A check-in on Escape At Dannemora (39:35) and how the acting performances are sustaining a curiously slow-moving series…
  • Netflix’s Bumping Mics (45:25) and the roast-y stylings of Jeff Ross and Dave Attell, plus where they may have gone wrong…
  • Russell Brand’s new special RE:BIRTH (52:35) and how he’s more of a general orator than a stand-up comic per se…
  • Homework for next week (59:15), including: the new HBO documentary Momentum Generation, the new film Roma (available on Netflix and in theaters), Amazon’s new spy show Patriot and some music from young singer Billie Eilish…
