Our editor and writers break down the culture
In this week’s groundbreaking episode of the BFG Week in Review, editor Neal Pollack welcomes writer Kristin Clifford to discuss the meta-meta ‘Scream‘ reboot. Or is it ‘Stab’? Regardless, Kristin attended a sold-out opening-night showing in Los Angeles. Fans were cheering when their favorite characters appeared. Pop culture is not dead, and either are the movies, apparently.
Meanwhile, everyone, even now people on the coasts, has now seen ‘Yellowstone.’ Adam Hirschfelder, from Marin County, California, has been skiing in Montana. So he’s the perfect choice to review the most popular TV show in America. Yellowstone’s over-the-top family melodrama and endless rodeo scenes really impress Adam. It may not be “woke,” but it presents the lives on Montana Native Americans and Black cowboys on the universe’s largest ranch with intelligence and nuance.
Jamie Mason stops our podcast ranch by to talk about Neal’s favorite topic, Cobra Kai. Themes of personal honor and integrity are key to martial-arts culture, and the latest installment in the endless Karate Kid saga addresses those themes head-on. How is this show even possible? Plus the martial-arts scenes are good and realistic.
