#95 | Mom, Marques Houston is at the Door

Constance Wu is fed up with the whitewashing of Asian history in Hollywood, and Brandon, Ken & John discuss the ABC sitcom star’s strong rebuking of Legendary Pictures’ upcoming Chinese-produced and set film “The Great Wall”, starring…Matt Damon? Really? Matt Damon?

Also, on the 48th anniversary of the first appearance of Franklin in Charles Schultz’s “Peanuts” comic strip, Brandon, Ken & John discuss the character’s place in the series in conjunction with reviews of both the first “Peanuts” animated feature film, 1969’s “A Boy Named Charlie Brown”, and the most recent feature, 2015’s “The Peanuts Movie”.

In addition, they discuss “The Rocketeer” getting a reboot/sequel with a Black female lead, the dying art of hand-painted movie posters, Stephen Colbert getting in trouble for being Stephen Colbert on his CBS late night show (as in, his old character from Comedy Central), Fox News CEO Roger Ailes being forced out of he company following multiple sexual harassment claims, a first look at Tyler Hoechlin as Superman on The CW’s “Supergirl”, The CW’s upcoming “Riverdale”, a Motown animated series, a ton of Netflix news about “Luke Cage”, “Stranger Things”, and “The Get Down”, and reviews of Anderson .Paak’s “Malibu”, “Fantasia’s “The Definition Of…”, the (unfortunate in this case) return of late-90s rapper Drama to news headlines, and…Marques Houston becoming a Jehovah’s Witness?

Come and feel the flavor and listen in.

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
