This week Jim and Ted recap the Amazon series, Jack Ryan before covering three incredible movie trailers.  Netflix and Amazon are at it again, and they end with Overlord.  Yes, Operation Overlord, which was the codename for the Normandy invation on June 6, 1944.  The trailer takes a bit of twist... oaky, a major turn.

Homecoming | Prime Video | Trailer drop 09.13.2018 | Release date 11.02.2018

Here is the show open Ted mentions for the Mr Robot that is completely out of character for the show. But a fun stretch for Sam Esmail and the whole cast to take a breath from all the heavy stuff happening while leaving the death and kidnapping in the show open it still pokes fun at it with a laugh track throughout the show too.

...but first a #TJPquickHIT Sometimes something will come out and won't fit in the run of our show but if we feel strongly about it we'll jump straight into is as the #TJPquickHIT. This week's quick hits are Eureka and Homecoming.

Eureka | Amazon Prime Video | Series Promo | Promo drop 06.30.2018 | Release date Out now

Welcome to EUREKA.png

So this one is here just to show that there is an effort to push an old show out to a new audience.

  • No mention of what how old the show is (It originally ran 2006-2012).
  • No Colin Ferguson on the thumbnail.
  • The title confused people - in the comments people were looking for Welcome to Eureka (I suspect with a round or two of notes they would have teased out the copy to make "Welcome to" less like the title)

Homecoming Season 1 | Amazon Prime Video | Teaser | Teaser drop 07.20.2018 | Release 11.02.2018

This teaser is juicy but we will really dig into this when the full trailer comes out but this shows a big check in a very classy way. They paid for...

  • Radiohead Everything In Its Right Place (both the music and lyrics add to the tension of the piece)
  • Mr. Robot legacy & pedigree - Sam Esmail given money and creative freedom
  • Julia Roberts - how juicy does this product have to be to get Julia to do streaming? 

But now to the Deeper dives.
