Coming Home To Being The Ricardos

Film critic Tim Grierson joins us to discuss Aaron Sorkin's behind-the-scenes look at I Love Lucy!

Being The Ricardos, Aaron Sorkin’s latest project as a big-screen writer-director is…also very much a small-screen project, so we are claiming it. Look, it’s about TV (specifically, the stars and making of I Love Lucy) and it’s kind of on TV (members can stream it for free on Amazon Prime Video), so IT COUNTS. Anyway: joining us for the discussion is actual film critic Tim Grierson! Around The Dial takes us through film-to-TV adaptation Finding Magic Mike; TV-to-film-back-to-TV adaptation MacGruber; Insecure; How To With John Wilson; Dead Asleep; and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. John Potts asks us to choose a TV getaway for our next imaginary holiday. Ilan brings us back to the TV-to-movie pipeline with a Canon presentation on The Simpsons episode “Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie.” Then we name the week’s Winner and Loser before closing out with a Game Time that really decks the halls. No need to arrange a multi-cam setup: this podcast is for your ears only!
