This week Jim and Ted host Bryce with his 8-year-old perspective. Ted gives you a bunch of Three Word Reviews to cover all the trailers that were released this week. We can't talk about them all, so Ted does what he can.
In Jennifer Garner's latest movie, Peppermint, we finally have a good use of the trailer to the trailer. The audio bite used from Jennifer Garner is not repeated in the body of the main trailer. It's additive without being repetitive. The other trailers this week are refreshing in their takes on genres that could use new takes.
The Sisters Brothers gives a comedic twist to a gritty western while preserving the verisimilitude of a Westworld real western.
We end with the The Happytime Murders that places your beloved Muppets in an awkward position, but they have a Melissa McCarthy to guide them, which is right in her wheelhouse and looks to deliver another solid comedic performance.

All the major networks (and this year ABC added freeform) still did their Upfronts (a dog and pony show where stars are brought out in front of a theatre full of advertisers and they get to enjoy pandering and extended trailers.) Jimmy Kimmel does some light roasting and NBC tries to sell shorter commercials, less ads - like a bad ripoff of Jerry Maguire. But CBS has a large core audience in the linear space and they intend on keeping them there as long as the TVs can stay on, long after the people watching have gone to sleep or left this plane of existence.

Last, but far from least, Ted has to apologize to Jimmy for understating the cultural importance of Michael Jordan, the man. Ted remembers a 2015 installation reliving some of MJ's greatest Last Shots. The agency was Los York and it looks like an incredible experience.
