We talk about what Chris has labeled “Toxic Heisenberg Syndrome” and share our favorite TV anti-heroes. And speaking of anti-heroes, in our second segment, we review The CW’s radical reimagining of the wholesome Archie comics, RIVERDALE, and NBC’s grim take of THE WIZARD OF OZ, EMERALD CITY with entertainment journalist Abbie Bernstein, author of “The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Art Of The Great Wall,” which is coming out in February.

Masked maniacs, ferocious fish, unhinged vigilantes and a wheelman from hell. Reading a list of Michael Wandmacher’s prolific credits feels like a particularly crazed membership drive for The Suicide Squad, a rogue’s gallery that he’s taken out for a spin with a distinctively energetic ability for pounding action where a metal attitude often hits the pedal. Starting his career in the rhythmic company of Jackie Chan with the English version scores for ARMOR OF GOD, TWIN DRAGONS and ONCE A COP. Wandmacher has brought his passion to CRY_ WOLF, THE KILLING FLOOR, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, PIRANHA 3-D, THE LAST EXORCISM:PART II  and PUNISHER: WAR […]Read On »
