Yeah, so, in this week’s episode of Dorking Out we talk about anti-heroes. Smith thinks there are too many and it’s ruining TV. I don’t disagree. I think most anti-heroes are the result of lazy writing. We have a good discussion about it, and we share our favorite TV anti-heroes.
In our second segment, Abbie Bernstein, an entertainment journalist and author, joins us to talk about modernizing classic stories. We review The CW’s “Riverdale,” which the radically reimagining of the old Archie comics. Yes, really. We also discuss NBC’s “Emerald City,” which is a remake of “The Wizard Of Oz.” I really hated it.
And finally, in our Favorite Headlines, we discuss Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards and Producers Guild Awards, and the influence they will have on our Oscar picks.
But wait, there’s more. I also joined The Pop Show for a lively discussion about the Television Critics Association panels, “Wonder Woman,” “The Flash” and why Smith keeps watching all the “Transformer” movies.
