Episode 60: What is Mrs. Gloop Doing?

In Minute 60, we discover that there’s no better time to learn to swim than when you’re drowning. By the end of the minute, we have officially lost our first child. Veruca, oddly, shows some compassion…and her father does not. David tries to decide whether or not you would actually need a plumber to extricate Augustus. Mrs. Gloop makes a series of inappropriate faces that David and Jason get a kick out of. Also, David has a problem with Grandpa Joe…surprise!

We’ll see you back here on Monday.

Episode 57: Chocolate Covered Steak

It’s Friday!!!

Todd is with us for one last episode, as we discuss minute 57. We’ve wrapped up the joy of “Pure Imagination”, and now we turn our sights to the Chocolate Room. Specifically, the centerpiece of the room the chocolate river and waterfall. Todd has questions about the buttercup, and the sound design of the bite. Mr. Salt and Mrs. Gloop have a weird reaction to the river running through the Chocolate Room. Mr. Salt seems pretty impressed with the fact that Wonka confides in him. We discuss the recording of the dialogue in this scene, which leads to a discussion about the the possibility of another filmed remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We end the episode discussing the Oompa Loompas and comparing the version in this film to Tim Burton’s version.

Thanks to Todd for being with us one final time. You can find Todd on Minute of the Apes and The Other Kind Radio. Also, you can find his book, The Risen, at this link.
