We’re taking a break from the depressing summer movie season to talk about television. We discuss Stranger Things star Gaten Matarrazo’s new “prank” show on Netflix, and with Emmy nominations underway, we discuss a problem unique to the Emmys: the same shows win every year. The only relief the sameness of the awards year to year is the Outstanding Limited Series category, which this year ought to feature our favorite show of the moment, Chernobyl. Join us as we talk Chernobyl, the Emmys, and why Jared Harris should be cast in everything.
