Episode 62: The 2nd Most Well Known Ocean Liner Disaster

Welcome to the middle of the week!

In Minute 62, Wonka brushes off criticism of how he handled the Augustus situation, and introduces the tour group to their new form of transportation. Wonka fat shames Mr. Salt…which I suppose is only fair, since Mr. Salt did the same to Augustus. Jason has a theory about the diegesis of the Oompa Loompa song. David offers a different way of looking at the staging of the scene, and it may owe to some confusing camera work. Jason compares this issue to a similar issue during the semi chase in The Dark Knight. David wonders why Wonka names his boat after a sunken ocean liner.

Also, I found this auction listing for some Harper Goff drawings of the Wonkatania.

Episode 58: Green Wigs and Orange Makeup

Happy Monday!

Jason and David start a new week talking about minute 58. We learn more about the Oompa Loompas and Loompaland, and Mrs. Teevee is being a know it all again. David doesn’t really understand the creaming and sugaring process in the chocolate river. Mike Teevee wonders aloud if the Oompa Loompas are real…and if they’re not real, what are they? We also talk about Rusty Goffe who is the Oompa Loompa with the most credits.

Episode 26: A Habitual Disinclination to Exertion

It’s the middle of another week, and time for a sweet treat!

On today’s minute, we discuss the introduction of Mike Teevee (or Teavee, or TV, depending on your spelling preferences). Who are these ladies standing around? Does the Teevee family have maid service? Did Mrs. Teevee want them to bear witness to the glory that is Mike’s golden ticket win? What is Mrs. Teevee’s relationship with hyperbole?

See you Friday!
