The Toy Department – Episode 147


In Episode 147, Derek Madden laments his frozen midwestern existence to former midwest sufferer Matt Kolsky before they break down:

  • How Alfonso Cuarón’s Netflix film Roma (4:20) fails to deliver on the hype, and what it says about the world of movie criticism… 
  • Another great episode of Top Chef (27:15) — who takes the blame for a shopping SNAFU, the lovability of NiNi and love for the Makers Mark chef… 
  • The brilliance and beauty of Momentum Generation (41:40) an HBO Sports documentary about a crew of surfers who changed the sport forever, led by all-time greatest Kelly Slater…
  • The Amazon series Patriot (51:20) and how neither host feels like they can make a definitive ruling after just two episodes of the first season…
  • Prodigious music phenom Billie Eilish (55:45) and what is most intriguing about her early output…
  • Homework for next week (1:02:40), including: watching Ellen’s new standup special on Netflix and prepping 2018 Top Ten lists (plus some mention of movies to watch over the holiday season)…
