The World Cup of Soccer Games for Futbol Enthusiasts™ is continuing to kick off strong as we enter the end of the group stages and move on the the Group of 16. John is seriously upset about his poor choices of backing Peru and so he continues to make bad choices and backs Iceland. Both of which are eliminated on the same day. He then decides to go “all in” and back Germany, his favorite team. Let’s hope John’s pick carries him through the entire tournament to the covetous gold medal trophy. (Post-Recording-Script: Germany was eliminated from the tournament the next day). In non-sports news, Westworld wrapped it’s season two this past Sunday and Henry’s got all the hard hitting answers for those MiNd BlOwInG questions the season left us with. Are any of us actually in control of our destiny? Can any of us be so bold as to proclaim that? No one knows. What we do know is that the boys put on their flippers and snorkels for a good ole fashioned, family homemade, ranch style with a colonial twist DEEP DIVE into the third Austin Powers movie Goldmember. What hath post-post-post sequel film making wrought? We have what we like to call “it all” in this episode and we’re up to sharing it with you, now, on Zero Credit(s).
It’s all TV Talk this week as we journey through the world of good and mostly bad shows still on the air for some reason. But first, Wrestlemania was really good this year, so keep it up WWE. Representation in media is huge. Black Panther proved that, as a recent example. Wonder Woman proved that. It matters. So when a certain longest running animated show that has considerably dropped in quality over the years sort of downplays the importance of representation by refusing to address why it is a problem in favor of defending choices made in the past in times when we weren’t as aware of the importance of representation, it kinda comes of as being tone deaf in a world where that isn’t an option any more.
Also discussed is an experiment by one Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy of Westworld wherein they might spoil an entire season of their hit robot filled drama so people can inoculate themselves against spoilers. Is it a good idea? Time will tell. It’s here, it’s on your TV, it’s in the air without a care. It’s Zero Credit(s)!
