Because we talked about Saturday Night Live on this week’s Podjiba, it gives me an excuse to talk about my love of the sketch “The Jockey” - specifically, the way it evoked Goldfinger’s “Superman”, the fun, absurd pivot from prestige horse racing movie to music video/video game nod, and the way it made me immediately want to go play more Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (this is not a video game post obviously, but the remaster has been my favorite game to drop in and play when I have a few minutes and just want to chill out).
I also love that it gives me an excuse to post this:
Tony Hawk singing on a cover of “No Cigar”! And for good measure, Steve Caballero playing guitar!
Anyway, before I get distracted and start playing THPS again, we also talked about all sorts of television this week, including:
- The return of Dexter in Dexter: New Blood! Also, my first time ever watching any amount of Dexter! (I found it to be mostly fine.)
- Tori lets us know about a show that hasn’t technically premiered yet (although the first episode is available online from Showtime): the new drama Yellowjackets!
- Obviously, we go INTO THE SINKHOLE [plonk] with Dustin on La Brea!
- Tori and Dustin dig into the first two episodes of Doctor Who, which I promise I will still eventually catch up on!
- And of course, we end with Succession, even as we find it difficult to find things to say beyond “hey we’re enjoying it, turns out it’s a pretty good show.”
