New Tomb Raider movie, old Buffy on TV, new Lethal Weapon and animation Big Mouth and F is for Family all make it into this week’s podcast. Move over Jolie, there’s a new Lara in town!
The team talk about the latest Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander, taking over the role from the amazing Angelina Jolie. Vikander has some huge boots to fill. The movie has been lined up as a reboot, alongside the current reboots of the Tomb Raider gaming franchise.
The new Tomb Raider looks to take us back to a time when Lara was a novice of her trade, building on her backstory and developing the character differently altogether.
In other news, Buffy comes up in conversation. The show that launched a number of careers including big Dave, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, Eliza Dushku and Seth Green, to name but a few have been getting repeated on TV and streaming services. One last trip back to Sunnydale before the Hellmouth devours it?
Neil admits to watching Lethal Weapon the TV series, he finds it curiously absorbing but also really bad. You can listen to his thoughts and why he has drawn the conclusion that the show is like a trashy novel and essential viewing because of this.
Sometimes we just need to disengage our brains… Neil does that often, so it makes sense for him to love/hate this show.
Finally, the team discuss more Big Mouth, and Bill Burr’s excellent F is for Family. Both shows have been top of the animation playlist for the majority of the team this past week.
F is for Family is a retrospective look back in time as to how life used to be. Sam Rockwell even supplies a voice for one of the principal characters in the show.
