The Toy Department – Episode 203


In Episode 203, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky have MUCH to discuss, so dive right into:

  • The HBO Sports documentary Ali & Cavett: Tale of the Tapes (1:25) and how it adds something to the historical record on a well-covered sports titan…
  • Dwyane Wade’s documentary Life Unexpected (8:00) and how it is very much the Dwyane Wade version of the Dwyane Wade story…
  • PBS’ American Masters episode on Miles Davis, entitled Birth of the Cool (14:55) and what a complete picture it painted of a complicated man who was truly one of the great musicians in human history…
  • The return of Better Call Saul on AMC (24:00) and how it is probably the best show on television right now…
  • The new Amazon show Hunters (30:55) and the surprisingly understated performance of Al Pacino…
  • AMC’s new show Dispatches from Elsewhere (37:00) and how producer/writer/director/star Jason Segel has created a fascinating and exciting curiosity through two oddball episodes…
  • The new Netflix comedy Gentefied (44:55) and how it fails to really grab the viewer in its first couple episodes…
  • Pete Davidson’s Netflix standup special (48:10) and how he’s a promising young comedic talent…
  • Homework for next week (57:40), including: the return of Better Things on FX, the end of The Outsider on HBO, Devs on FX/Hulu, Dave on FXX (it’s an FX-heavy week), the Netflix Lil Peep documentary Everbody’s Everything, Netflix’s I Am Not Okay With This, the HBO Sports documentary and Marc Maron’s new special End Times Fun…
