Can you learn all you need to know about an actor from trailers? Jim and Ted try and find out.

Joaquin Phoenix has had a long career and quiet a variety of films but something about his look gives his audience the idea that it's him acting there, and surprisingly - that is a comforting feeling.

Up first this week is this indie flick with Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black in the streaming film, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot. 

On March 9, 2018 he's in theaters in You Were Never Really Here. 

These are great directors why do they like working with JP? Here's a great, yet underrated Paul Thomas Anderson film that reads more like a Coen Brothers script than the typical focused percision of a PTA film.  OK, Ted put this one in to hear Jim's Terrible British accent impersonation.

...and to round it out Walk the Line.

The Super Bowl cycles through the major networks (NBC, CBS & FOX) so the AFC and NFC championship games go to the other networks. The sweet renewal contract is here at TV by the Numbers. NBC got the best part of this deal.

"Cold Open," "Tease," etc. we don't know why we call these things what we call them we just do. This look inside... baseball? in the TV promo space. Sometimes I think media marketers make stuff for their own amusement but this time the meta message rings true to the everyman.
