A special two-part episode. In part one, Matthew Wrather, Matthew Belinkie, Mark Lee, and new regular Josh McNeil (who ditches us halfway through) overthink:
- The Simpsons‘s longevity
- The coming revolution in film exhibition
- How none of us saw Bond
- Synecdoche, New York: Painful but Good
- Recent advances in video game technology
And in Part Two, Wrather sits down with Ryan Sheely for a profound discussion of the sociological implications of Gossip Girl. The word “purports” is used repeatedly, and the word “telos” at least once.
