#92 | Emmys So “black-ish”

Brandon & Ken are back to continue discussion of the new remake/reboot of “Ghostbusters” and the negative reactions to the film by both professional reviewers (really, Mr. Roeper?) and the denizens of Twitter and IMDb who’ve seen nary a frame of it, but apparently hate women.

Later, they review “Stranger Things” on Netflix and discuss the 2016 Primetime Emmy nominations, including the diversity of the nominees, the significance of Tracee Ellis Ross’ nomination, and which performers, shows, and _networks_ got shut out. They also explore the good, bad, and ugly of the 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors Show, Kid Flash being added to The CW’s “The Flash”, who the baby was on Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody”, and more – including why far too many celebrities supporting “All Lives Matter” without actually understanding what they’re doing.
