It’s tricky to critique or even analyze a show like …
The Legend of Korra
2015 is here – but before the spring season begins, Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti sit back and reflect on the year that was 2014. Ok, no they don’t; instead, they talk about a buttload of television, beginning with the series finales of The Legend of Korra and Selfie. Also on the menu is BoJack Horseman’s Christmas special, TBS’s little-watched sitcom My Boys, and the Benched finale and Empire premiere. Finally, the guys spend a healthy 25% of the podcast discussing Charlie Kaufman’s beautiful, heartwrenching, inspiring, utterly unique film Synecdoche, NY, capping off the podcast with a philosophic conversation about film, life, and the perfection of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s performance. Enjoy!
The end of 2014 is coming, and with it, the end of The Legend of Korra – and on this week’s episode of The Mid-Season Replacements, Randy and Sean try to prepare themselves for the end of Korra (along with figure out where the hell this season is going). In another week absent of any interesting, tangent-worthy news, the guys spend plenty of time talking about The Flash and Arrow mid-season finales, and then have a healthy discussion about their latest Six Degrees of Everything film, the Greg Mottola-directed The Daytrippers, starring Hope Davis, Parkey Posey, and a screen-stealing Liev Schreiber. Plus Sean talks about weather and Randy talks about his cat: what better way could we kick off the holiday season?
Welcome to the first installment of “Living Pictures on the Small Screen,” a weekly column dedicated to animated programming on television. Cultural commentary inevitably comes with bias, and I wanted to create this column in appreciation of the people and shows that helped me overcome my own bias regarding animation.
