Episode 88: Everything Always Comes Back to Nickelback

It’s a brand new week! Thanks for starting it with us!

In minute 88, Mike Teevee is interrupting Willy Wonka, and explains television poorly. Wonka explains how he created Wonkavision…poorly. Also, we realize how much of this scene is lost in translation with today’s television technology. Jason explains his version of 4K to David. We briefly discuss video formats, and why formats end up being adopted. Jason makes a Star Trek reference that completely goes over David’s head. Wonka gives us another literary quote, and we talk Lewis Carroll’s gifts to the literary canon.

Episode 74: Wonka’s Sense of Humor

Happy Wednesday!

In Minute 74, we’re continuing to deal with Violet’s transformation. The Oompa Loompas moralize, and Mr. Beauregarde is very concerned for his daughter’s well being. We talk about this version of the Oompa Loompa song, and whether or not it’s diegetic. David breaks down the lyrics, trying to figure out what they’re getting at this time. We discuss how difficult it must have been to be Denise Nickerson for the shooting of this scene, and talk about the costume that she had to stay in for long stretches. There’s also a discussion about the gum chewing habits of our hosts.

Episode 40: How Many Spiders Are In These Slippers?

Welcome to a new week!

In Minute 40, Grandpa Joe sings “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket”, and starts to wander around the room. We try and break down exactly where Joe’s perspective is coming from in the lyrics of this song. We have a lot of problems with his selfishness (and hyperbole). Jason points out that after 20 years of non-use, Grandpa Joe’s slippers, which he demands, probably have spiders living in them.

See you back here on Wednesday!
