Writing show notes unfortunately would break the picket rules. So would doing episode art. So instead, enjoy these random words: SAG-AFTRA, WGA, STRIKE, PICKET, MOVIES, TELEVISION, TIKTOK, NPC MOMENT, ETC.
After being mad and screaming all last week, it’s time to dial things back a bit and just vibe. Little influence from current news, little influence from our lives, mix it up and just vibe and see where we end up. Has the cultural landscape evolved beyond the scope that allowed Game of Thrones to be the tour de force that it was? Let’s discuss how our lives have been changed and shaped by technology so that we’re just little islands for wave after wave of content to crash into. This is Zero Credit(s).
Heading into this week’s episode, we had no content and things looked bleak when a shining statue descending from the heavens and nominated a bunch of actors, directors, writers, production people, etc., for awards. So I guess let’s talk about that forever. It’s the annual Emmy nominations episode right here, 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)!
