Buckle in Junkies! JM takes Jim and Ted on a wild ride from an aircraft carrier to Spider-Man! Double sized for all the stories. The beers were eclectic. JM’s Rasputin 22oz was a lot to handle and Jimmy’s Trappistes Rochefort #8 looked awesome and Ted returned to IPAs with Laugh It Up, Fuzzyball from Claremont Craft Ales.
This week Jim and Ted discuss streaming strategies from the sidelines (absolutely no insider information here - only the speculation from a couple of savvy armchair quarterbacks). As well as the stylistic pivot of the Sonic design, what do all the Veronica Mars Kickstarter funders get from Hulu? And is Bezos trolling the other media content studios with their streaming movie Late Night?

Three types of companies make three very different movies for a variety of reasons. The most interesting is Deadwood, can a movie reanimate a short-lived, but loved HBO series? Does Netflix finally hit Sandler paydirt with Murder Mystery? Can a very traditional combination - Paramount, Will Smith, Jerry Bruckheimer & Ang Lee make a actioner worth watching?
