[SEGMENT 1: Disney Detective] (8-12 minutes)

  • More Disney Entertainment Returning With Fan-Favorite ‘Yehaa Bob’
  • https://insidethemagic.net/2021/09/disney-yehaa-bob-returns-kc1/?utm_content=bufferf588c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer&fbclid=IwAR3eh2d0dFEmkRuqnzt8N0FgqsdYhmCC4mnSMCjpDH9UT-XWXonZz_DZvtE

    • More entertainment is returning to Walt Disney World as Bob Jackson, also known as ‘Yehaa Bob’, just confirmed he will be coming back to Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside!
      • In case you are not aware, ‘Yehaa Bob’ was a Disney World entertainment performer for 23 years. 
      • Guests could find him putting on a fun and unique show over at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside almost every night as ‘Yehaa Bob’ played the piano, sang familiar tunes, and somehow managed to get every person up and out of their seats — creating memories that would last a lifetime.
    • Unfortunately, ‘Yehaa Bob’ was part of the massive layoffs last year due to the ongoing pandemic
      • It was unclear if he would return to the Walt Disney Company. 
      • This news affected many Disney fans as not long after the layoff was announced, a Change.org petition surfaced, asking Disney to re-hire ‘Yehaa Bob’ at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside.
    • Now, nearly one year later, we have some great news to share as Bob Jackson himself confirmed that he would be returning to Port Orleans Riverside when it reopens to Guests next month!
      • In a TikTok video, Bob Jackson said that Disney called him this afternoon asking him to return to his stage at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside on October 14! 
      • At this time, the Walt Disney World website has not been updated to include showtimes, but we will update you as we get information regarding ‘Yehaa Bob”s return. 
    • Disney World describes this fan-favorite entertainment offering as:
      • Head over to this cozy club at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside and enjoy boogie-woogie musical stylings and comedy from a local legend. 
      • Sing along to Disney standards, songbook classics and kid-friendly ditties.
      • You may even get called up to participate in the show!
        • As a Side note, since he hadn’t been at the Resort, he’s peen putting on a weekly show on Facebook Live to keep the music & entertainment going!
  • Disney’s Space 220 Reveals Elevator That Will Blast Guests 220 Miles Above Earth!
  • https://insidethemagic.net/2021/09/space-220-elevator-ad1/?fbclid=IwAR16ccYBuTalEIDdIbeyEcw7mWpGhWY78RsA5zZy2-Tob17lsiax-bwSC_E

    • Disney World fans have been very excited as of late, with the 50th anniversary quickly approaching, bringing in a boat-load of all-new offerings for Guests to enjoy, explore, and indulge in.
      • But, before the celebratory fun begins on October 1, we will get to see the Patina Group restaurant Space 220 finally open its space shuttle doors on September 20 at EPCOT. 
      • The location was originally meant to open last February. 
      • Still, it was delayed and then paused due to the pandemic, so it is obvious that Guests are on the edge of their seats waiting to try the new dining option.
    • Space 220 will let Guests feel like they are actually dining in space, creating an immersive dining experience like no other. 
      • Now, Guests can get more excited as a new website has been launched, which has also allowed future space travelers to see the concept art of the iconic elevator that will shuttle them into the solar system.
    • The elevator is meant to transport Guests 220 miles above the Earth and will be an integral aspect of the Guest experience and overall storyline of the location. 
      • Currently, the new website is quite barren in terms of information, as not all information has been released as of yet.
      • For now, it seems that the site will soon feature hours of operations as well as the locations menu once that information is open to the public. 
    • The official Walt Disney World description of the upcoming Space 220 restaurant reads:
      • A Stellar Adventure
      • Embark on the ultimate culinary exploration from this new expansion of the Mission: SPACE pavilion.
      • Step inside Space 220—a celestial panorama of a space station—for a delicious meal! 
      • As you dine, peer out and enjoy amazing daytime and nighttime views of Earth from 220 miles up.
      • Going Up and Dining Out
      • To begin your journey, board a special space elevator that will ascend to the stars! 
      • Along the way, viewports will give you an aerial view of Epcot as you travel high above the planet.
      • Upon your arrival, you will dine from a menu featuring modern American cuisine, more than 1,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines and a wide selection of craft beer.

[SEGMENT 2: Tales from the Edge of the Galaxy] (8-12 minutes)

  • Darth Vader Might Be Joining ‘The Mandalorian’ Universe
  • https://insidethemagic.net/2021/09/darth-vader-mandalorian-universe-rwb1/?fbclid=IwAR3QWdrgkGcuudI89g_0Q2AKdKOAqS6cyo_xu_eLbVPH7FEhRDIUpGybg90
  • https://bit.ly/3Cg8NV3 
    • When The Mandalorian Season 2 ended with its spectacular finale episode (“Chapter 16: The Rescue”), Star Wars fans were already processing a lot before the credits even rolled.
      • The return of Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker! 
      • Bounty hunter Din Djarin wielding the Darksaber! 
      • Grogu (AKA “Baby Yoda”) leaving with Skywalker and R2-D2! 
    • Then, in a post credits scene nobody was expecting, Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni announced a brand new series, The Book of Boba Fett, 
      • The scene, which took place sometime after Fett and Shand parted ways with Djarin and his motley crew of heroes — including Cara Dune , and Bo-Katan — took us back to a very familiar location in the Star Wars universe, Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine.
    • Jabba, of course, was killed by Princess Leia in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, but, in the Mandalorian post credits scene, we learn his former right-hand man, Twi’lek Bib Fortuna, has taken his throne.
      • Shand makes quick work of Fortuna’s henchmen — and frees a slave who is shackled to the floor — but leaves Fortuna himself for Fett. 
      • Once the Twi’lek is unceremoniously killed, Fett takes the throne, signaling that he’s about to take Tatooine — and who knows where else in the Star Wars galaxy — for himself.
    • To date, Book of Boba Fett showrunner Robert Rodriguez and series directors, like Favreau and Filoni, have all remained unsurprisingly tight-lipped about the upcoming Mandalorian spinoff, which Favreau has billed as “The Mandalorian Season 2.5″.
      • Furthermore, it has been confirmed that the show will “go back in time” to the original trilogy era, perhaps telling us once and for all how Fett survived the Sarlacc pit.
      • These details, however, scant, have most “Mando-verse” fans thinking that we are likely to see a number of cameos throughout the show, which is set to air in December 2021.
    • While Marshal Cobb Vanth and Han Solo are both frontrunners to show up, there’s also a very viable possibility that Darth Vader will make his way into The Mandalorian universe.
      • Fett, after all, has been connected to the Dark Lord of the Sith since Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back and it seems highly unlikely that Rodriguez and his team could stage a return to the original trilogy era without including Vader in some capacity.
    • What is, perhaps, most intriguing is that we know that both The Book of Boba Fett and the upcoming Deborah Chow series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, both recently finished filming at The Volume soundstage.
      • Hayden Christensen was, of course, on hand for Obi-Wan Kenobi, as he will be reprising his prequel trilogy role as Darth Vader alongside Ewan McGregor’s Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
      • Who’s to say that Christensen didn’t film scenes for both shows while he was on the Kenobi series set?
    • This, of course, remains unconfirmed by Lucasfilm, but the appearance of Darth Vader in at least one flashback scene in The Book of Boba Fett almost feels like a foregone conclusion given the relationship between the notorious bounty hunter and the Sith Lord.
      • While this remains speculation at this time, there is even the possibility that The Book of Boba Fett could somehow tie Darth Vader and Grogu together. 
      • Thanks to Ahsoka Tano, we know that the tiny foundling was present on Coruscant at the Jedi Temple during the execution of Order 66 — and Anakin’s siege on the younglings.
    • Fans want more of “Baby Yoda’s” origin story, and what better way to deliver than by connecting him to one of the most famous Star Wars characters of all time?
  • Star Wars’ Old Republic Strikes Back in This Look Inside a New Anthology
  • https://gizmodo.com/star-wars-old-republic-strikes-back-in-this-look-inside-1847665238
  • https://bit.ly/3kblJoT 
    • The current Star Wars canon may be embracing the time of the High Republic, which takes place 200 years before the events of the movies. 
      • But in the series’ old Expanded Universe, now the “Legends” of Star Wars fiction beyond the realm of canon, the Old Republic rules the roost. 
      • Last week, we saw Darth Revan’s return in the Knights of the Old Republic remake, and now, another Sith Lord contemplates war in the sneak peek inside Star Wars Insider’s latest anthology.
    • io9 has a look inside Star Wars Insider: Fiction Collection Vol. 2, the magazine’s second collection of classic original fiction from decades of storytelling. 
      • Since its launch, Insider has played host to new adventures from iconic Star Wars writers from the height of the old expanded universe all the way into the current era of canon—such as Alan Dean Foster, Mur Lafferty, Alexander Freed, David J. Williams, and Mark S. Williams—including ongoing short stories set during the High Republic period that have revitalized Insider as a home for new bites of Star Wars storytelling.
    • But this look inside the latest collection goes back thousands of years and into the Star Wars legends for a tale from the world of Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic
      • That itself is set thousands of years before the movies, and 300 after the events of the beloved duology, Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel, The Sith Lords. 
      • “The Third Lesson,” by Paul S. Kemp and featuring art from Marek Oko, follows Old Republic villain Darth Malgus. 
      • It’s set after the Sith Empire’s crushing rout from the planet Alderaan during the ongoing fire of the war between the Old Republic and the Sith, as depicted in one of the game’s cinematic trailers, “Hope.”

      • Wilson joins LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish in a roll call for a production that is described as an ensemble in nature.
    • Story details are being kept in the dark, but it is known that ostensibly the film will follow a family that moves into the titular mansion. 
      • However, it is the characters around that nucleus that will have a big portion of the moonlight shining on them.
    • The project begins shooting in Atlanta in October. 
      • It is the latest to be based on one of the company’s classic rides and comes in the wake of the studio releasing Jungle Cruise, also inspired by a theme park attraction. 
    • Wilson became a fan-favorite when he played Mobius, a middle manager who works with Tom Hiddleston’s lord of mischief in Marvel’s Loki, the series that unspooled in June and July on Disney+.
      • The comedic actor also will be seen in this fall’s The French Dispatch, the latest film from frequent collaborator Wes Anderson, and recently wrapped shooting the romantic comedy Marry Me opposite Jennifer Lopez.
  • TMZ sold to Fox Entertainment
  • https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/13/media/tmz-sold-fox-entertainment/index.html
  • https://cnn.it/3nCw2ES 
    • TMZ is now part of Fox Entertainment, the companies announced Monday.
      • The news and entertainment brand, best known for breaking news on celebrity gossip and deaths, was previously owned by WarnerMedia. 
      • WarnerMedia’s parent company AT&T (T) has been shedding assets to help pay down its debt and pave the way for investments in 5G. 
      • The telecom giant sold anime brand Crunchyroll to Sony and its TV service DirectTV to TPG Capital. 
      • WarnerMedia is also slated to be spun off and combined with Discovery.
    • Harvey Levin, the managing editor of TMZ who co-founded the company in 2005, will stay on board and report up to Fox’s management.
      • Other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
      • Fox Corporation Executive Chairman and CEO Lachlan Murdoch said in a statement, “The unique and powerful brand Harvey has created in TMZ has forever changed the entertainment industry and we’re excited to welcome them to FOX.”
    • Fox will operate all of TMZ’s channels including its programs, TMZ and TMZ LIVE, which already air on 18 network affiliates owned by Fox Television Stations, according to the release.
      • “When I see a breaking celebrity-related story that is equal parts shocking, fun and addictive, I know it’s TMZ,” Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier said in a statement. 
      • “Whether via broadcast or digital, TMZ has brought its brand-defining energy and sense of urgency to fans across the planet.”

    • https://www.pbs.org/show/frankie-drake-mysteries/
    • https://to.pbs.org/3lvCfiW 
      • Set in 1920s Toronto, the series follows the adventures of Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and her partner Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley) at Drake Private Detectives, the city’s only all-female detective agency, as they find themselves fighting crime in the age of flyboys, gangsters, rum-runners, and speakeasies.

    • Spycraft
    • https://www.netflix.com/title/81014547 
    • https://bit.ly/3llpKGE 
      • Spycraft, the new Netflix docuseries takes viewers on a guided tour through the work and tech of espionage. 
        • Each of the eight half-hour episodes focuses on a specific topic, highlighting an assortment of gadgets and techniques, and then backing it all up with historical context covering how these resources are put to use in the field.
      • Spycraft is filled with little historical nuggets of information like this. 
        • There’s the bullet that was fitted with a tiny microphone. 
        • Or the covert communications device that transmits messages through the water, between two specially designed fishing rods. 
        • Or the squad of East German spies — the “Romeos,” as they were called — tasked with seducing women who were in a position to pass along information and who were deemed susceptible to acts of “sexpionage.” 
      • Personally I’ve been fascinated by the technology and techniques of spying for a long time
        • Spycraft seems to check most of the boxes as far as that little guilty pleasure of mine goes
        • You get an intimate look at some of the more unique pieces of technology
        • You also get a great history lesson and some of the more dirty details of the spy world
        • Broken down into 8 episodes they do a great job of dedicating just the right amount of time to each topic
        • I can honestly say I learned a number of things I didn’t know prior to going into the show, and more details on some of the things I did know about.

our domain provider so i have to fix

0:05:32.639,0:05:38.320
that just insights into things.com okay

0:05:36.320,0:05:40.880
yes i discovered that during the whole

0:05:38.320,0:05:43.440
changeover of the video hosting so

0:05:40.880,0:05:45.039
that’s kind of kind of a bummer but i’ll

0:05:43.440,0:05:47.120
get it fixed

0:05:45.039,0:05:50.120
anyway ready to get into it sure all

0:05:47.120,0:05:50.120
right

0:05:54.880,0:06:01.280
go for disney detective so this was kind

0:05:57.440,0:06:03.039
of the uplifting uh news to hear so more

0:06:01.280,0:06:06.000
entertainment is returning to walt

0:06:03.039,0:06:09.039
disney world as bob jackson who is also

0:06:06.000,0:06:11.360
known as yeehaw bob just confirmed that

0:06:09.039,0:06:14.319
he will be coming back to disney’s port

0:06:11.360,0:06:17.759
orleans riverside so in case you’re not

0:06:14.319,0:06:21.680
aware yeehaw bob was a disney world

0:06:17.759,0:06:24.080
entertainment performer for 23 years

0:06:21.680,0:06:26.720
guests could find tim putting on a fun

0:06:24.080,0:06:29.280
and unique show over at disney’s port

0:06:26.720,0:06:31.680
orleans riverside almost every night as

0:06:29.280,0:06:34.800
yeehaw bob played the piano he would

0:06:31.680,0:06:37.520
play the piano sing familiar tunes and

0:06:34.800,0:06:39.840
somehow would manage to get every person

0:06:37.520,0:06:42.240
up out of their seats creating memories

0:06:39.840,0:06:44.639
that would last a lifetime so

0:06:42.240,0:06:47.440
unfortunately yeehaw bob was part of the

0:06:44.639,0:06:50.240
massive layoffs that happened last year

0:06:47.440,0:06:52.560
due to the ongoing pandemic so it was

0:06:50.240,0:06:55.680
unclear if he would return to the walt

0:06:52.560,0:06:59.440
disney company uh this news affected

0:06:55.680,0:07:02.800
many disney fans as long

0:06:59.440,0:07:04.319
long as you know um sorry let’s try this

0:07:02.800,0:07:07.120
again the news

0:07:04.319,0:07:09.479
affected many disney fans as not long

0:07:07.120,0:07:12.639
after the layoff was announced a

0:07:09.479,0:07:15.520
change.org petition actually surfaced

0:07:12.639,0:07:18.639
asking disney to rehire him at disney’s

0:07:15.520,0:07:20.639
port orleans riverside so now nearly one

0:07:18.639,0:07:23.440
year later we have some great news to

0:07:20.639,0:07:25.120
share as bob jackson himself confirmed

0:07:23.440,0:07:28.160
that he would be returning to port

0:07:25.120,0:07:30.960
orleans riverside when it reopens to

0:07:28.160,0:07:34.400
guests next month there was a tick tock

0:07:30.960,0:07:36.000
video where bob jackson said that excuse

0:07:34.400,0:07:39.199
me disney had called him in the

0:07:36.000,0:07:41.520
afternoon asking him to return to his

0:07:39.199,0:07:45.199
stage at disney’s port orleans riverside

0:07:41.520,0:07:47.520
on october on october 14th

0:07:45.199,0:07:50.240
so at this time the walt disney world

0:07:47.520,0:07:53.360
website has not updated

0:07:50.240,0:07:55.199
anything to include show times but

0:07:53.360,0:07:56.639
obviously as it gets a little closer

0:07:55.199,0:07:58.479
they’ll probably

0:07:56.639,0:08:00.879
have some more information

0:07:58.479,0:08:03.680
so disney world had described this fan

0:08:00.879,0:08:06.720
favorite entertainment offering as head

0:08:03.680,0:08:09.360
over to this cozy club at disney’s port

0:08:06.720,0:08:12.160
orleans riverside and enjoy boogie

0:08:09.360,0:08:14.800
woogie musical stylings and comedy from

0:08:12.160,0:08:17.280
a local legend sing along to disney

0:08:14.800,0:08:19.840
standards songbook classics and

0:08:17.280,0:08:22.800
kid-friendly ditties you may even get

0:08:19.840,0:08:24.879
called upon to participate in the show

0:08:22.800,0:08:29.039
and as a little side note

0:08:24.879,0:08:32.320
once he uh was laid off from disney he

0:08:29.039,0:08:34.640
actually was doing a live show every

0:08:32.320,0:08:37.360
sunday night from his home

0:08:34.640,0:08:40.560
and he would post it on uh facebook live

0:08:37.360,0:08:42.399
so he would go live um and you’d always

0:08:40.560,0:08:43.919
see hundreds of people

0:08:42.399,0:08:46.959
logging in he would usually do the show

0:08:43.919,0:08:49.040
for like an hour um of various things

0:08:46.959,0:08:51.360
and and he had a monitor set up so he

0:08:49.040,0:08:54.480
could read comments that that people

0:08:51.360,0:08:56.160
were doing and and everything so um

0:08:54.480,0:08:58.959
unfortunately it’s a show that we’ve

0:08:56.160,0:09:01.040
actually never seen and we have stayed

0:08:58.959,0:09:03.360
at port orleans riverside and we were

0:09:01.040,0:09:05.440
going on the one night it was going on

0:09:03.360,0:09:07.760
the one night and there were no seats

0:09:05.440,0:09:10.399
available and then the other night when

0:09:07.760,0:09:11.920
we were going to happened to be the

0:09:10.399,0:09:14.160
night that he didn’t perform because i

0:09:11.920,0:09:16.240
think you know like he performs like six

0:09:14.160,0:09:18.720
nights a week or something so the one

0:09:16.240,0:09:20.080
night that we wanted to go we couldn’t

0:09:18.720,0:09:22.320
and

0:09:20.080,0:09:25.040
there are people that will stay at that

0:09:22.320,0:09:26.720
resort just so that they can see

0:09:25.040,0:09:28.800
a couple of his shows

0:09:26.720,0:09:30.399
um because it’s you know it’s one of

0:09:28.800,0:09:33.200
those things where it’s never the same

0:09:30.399,0:09:36.480
show twice but there’s so many familiar

0:09:33.200,0:09:38.160
aspects right to the show so hearing

0:09:36.480,0:09:40.720
this news

0:09:38.160,0:09:43.040
is is very uplifting that things are

0:09:40.720,0:09:44.959
starting to kind of come back

0:09:43.040,0:09:46.800
yeah it’s nice to see that disney is

0:09:44.959,0:09:48.160
still trying is trying to get things

0:09:46.800,0:09:50.480
back into that spring they’re bringing

0:09:48.160,0:09:52.800
back some of the favorites they might

0:09:50.480,0:09:54.959
even get to the point where i’m slightly

0:09:52.800,0:09:57.279
interested in going back again we’re not

0:09:54.959,0:09:59.200
there yet no we’ve got a long ways to go

0:09:57.279,0:10:01.279
to get there before i’m comfortable

0:09:59.200,0:10:04.240
right and before i’m willing to spend

0:10:01.279,0:10:05.839
the kind of money that disney’s asking

0:10:04.240,0:10:08.640
for the diminished experience that they

0:10:05.839,0:10:09.519
still are having right but i expect them

0:10:08.640,0:10:11.360
to

0:10:09.519,0:10:13.040
continue to improve there and and

0:10:11.360,0:10:14.800
hopefully we’ll get there

0:10:13.040,0:10:17.040
here’s to hoping

0:10:14.800,0:10:19.839
if that doesn’t bring you back maybe

0:10:17.040,0:10:22.000
dining 220 miles above the earth bill

0:10:19.839,0:10:24.160
tell us about that yeah so this is

0:10:22.000,0:10:26.880
something that uh

0:10:24.160,0:10:30.560
disney world fans have been very excited

0:10:26.880,0:10:32.880
uh waiting for this to to open up um

0:10:30.560,0:10:35.440
obviously you have the 50th anniversary

0:10:32.880,0:10:38.160
which is quickly approaching and you

0:10:35.440,0:10:41.200
know there’s all these uh new offerings

0:10:38.160,0:10:44.399
for guests to enjoy explore and indulge

0:10:41.200,0:10:47.519
in uh but before all the festivities

0:10:44.399,0:10:50.720
begin on october 1st there is something

0:10:47.519,0:10:53.200
that will will be opening beforehand so

0:10:50.720,0:10:54.880
it’s the patina group

0:10:53.200,0:10:57.440
restaurant

0:10:54.880,0:11:01.360
that will be running space

0:10:57.440,0:11:02.560
220 and that will finally open how much

0:11:01.360,0:11:05.839
each meal is

0:11:02.560,0:11:08.240
i don’t know probably

0:11:05.839,0:11:09.839
well they’ll finally be opening their

0:11:08.240,0:11:13.360
doors uh

0:11:09.839,0:11:15.440
next week on september 20th at epcot

0:11:13.360,0:11:17.600
the location was originally meant to

0:11:15.440,0:11:20.000
open last february

0:11:17.600,0:11:22.640
uh still it was delayed and then pushed

0:11:20.000,0:11:25.279
back because of the pandemic

0:11:22.640,0:11:28.079
so now guests are kind of you know

0:11:25.279,0:11:30.160
very interested in this new dining

0:11:28.079,0:11:34.320
option that we’ve been hearing about for

0:11:30.160,0:11:36.480
for so long so space uh 220 will let

0:11:34.320,0:11:39.680
guests feel like they are actually

0:11:36.480,0:11:43.120
dining in space creating an immersive

0:11:39.680,0:11:44.880
dining experience like no other

0:11:43.120,0:11:47.120
now guests get

0:11:44.880,0:11:50.000
can get more excited as a new website

0:11:47.120,0:11:52.240
has been launched which

0:11:50.000,0:11:54.880
has also allowed future space travelers

0:11:52.240,0:11:58.000
to see the concept art of the iconic

0:11:54.880,0:11:59.760
elevator that will shuttle them into the

0:11:58.000,0:12:02.000
solar system

0:11:59.760,0:12:05.760
the elevator is meant to transport

0:12:02.000,0:12:08.720
guests 220 miles above the earth and

0:12:05.760,0:12:11.600
will be an integral aspect of the guest

0:12:08.720,0:12:12.880
experience and overall storyline of the

0:12:11.600,0:12:14.560
location

0:12:12.880,0:12:16.880
currently the new website is quite

0:12:14.560,0:12:18.959
barren in terms of information

0:12:16.880,0:12:20.399
not much information has been released

0:12:18.959,0:12:23.200
as of yet

0:12:20.399,0:12:25.279
so hopefully once the restaurant

0:12:23.200,0:12:27.920
actually opens there’ll be some more

0:12:25.279,0:12:30.240
information on there so the official

0:12:27.920,0:12:33.120
walt disney world description of the

the world’s finest wine and a wide

0:13:26.079,0:13:33.560
variety uh selection of craft beer

0:13:29.600,0:13:33.560
sounds like somebody’s getting drunk

0:13:34.079,0:13:38.639
have 500 of them um so

0:13:37.440,0:13:40.959
this sounds

0:13:38.639,0:13:42.399
you know almost like

0:13:40.959,0:13:46.240
it’s funny because they use the

0:13:42.399,0:13:48.000
immersive experience it’s it’s star wars

0:13:46.240,0:13:51.839
restaurant right it’s star wars

0:13:48.000,0:13:54.959
restaurant and you don’t have to

0:13:51.839,0:13:57.199
you know pay six thousand dollars to we

0:13:54.959,0:13:59.600
don’t know yet well more than likely i’m

0:13:57.199,0:14:00.320
hoping um i’m pretty sure the 220 is

0:13:59.600,0:14:02.079
going to

0:14:00.320,0:14:04.079
be the base price for the base i’m sure

0:14:02.079,0:14:06.800
that’s gonna be like the ongoing joke as

0:14:04.079,0:14:08.880
that 220 is you know so it you know

0:14:06.800,0:14:10.560
obviously it’s not

0:14:08.880,0:14:12.720
as

0:14:10.560,0:14:15.600
at this restaurant the sky is the limit

0:14:12.720,0:14:18.720
right it’s not the futuristic

0:14:15.600,0:14:20.880
in space this is more

0:14:18.720,0:14:22.240
quote-unquote realistic it’s

0:14:20.880,0:14:25.360
contemporary

0:14:22.240,0:14:27.680
dining in space right like if we could

0:14:25.360,0:14:29.360
this is how it would happen so you’re if

0:14:27.680,0:14:31.440
you don’t pay the bill there’s an

0:14:29.360,0:14:33.360
airlock with your name on it right you

0:14:31.440,0:14:35.839
know so there’s not going to be a storm

0:14:33.360,0:14:38.480
trooper coming in or or anything you

0:14:35.839,0:14:39.440
know i could see like astronauts

0:14:38.480,0:14:42.560
if they

0:14:39.440,0:14:44.959
got corny enough is spacex selling like

0:14:42.560,0:14:46.639
marketing banners and stuff

0:14:44.959,0:14:49.680
csp

0:14:46.639,0:14:52.000
that would be kind of funny so

0:14:49.680,0:14:53.279
you know elon musk

0:14:52.000,0:14:55.440
his car

0:14:53.279,0:14:58.079
didn’t have the tesla the tesla go by

0:14:55.440,0:14:59.360
like oh that’s where it is so kind of

0:14:58.079,0:15:00.800
kind of cool

0:14:59.360,0:15:03.839
they’ve been talking about this for a

0:15:00.800,0:15:06.880
while that they’ve wanted to to add

0:15:03.839,0:15:09.120
something uh you know a restaurant to to

0:15:06.880,0:15:12.079
this so kind of interesting

0:15:09.120,0:15:12.079
to to have

0:15:14.959,0:15:17.920
more than this to bring me back to

0:15:16.399,0:15:20.000
disney i know

0:15:17.920,0:15:21.519
uh an exceptionally expensive dining

0:15:20.000,0:15:23.920
experience isn’t going to bring me back

0:15:21.519,0:15:25.760
right exactly this isn’t the oh

0:15:23.920,0:15:28.320
now that this is opening all right i’m

0:15:25.760,0:15:29.440
there sign me up no but it’s nice that

0:15:28.320,0:15:30.320
they’re

0:15:29.440,0:15:33.440
you know

0:15:30.320,0:15:35.199
starting to reopen things but also bring

0:15:33.440,0:15:37.120
it’s new things back

0:15:35.199,0:15:40.480
it’s nice to see that disney is learning

0:15:37.120,0:15:42.560
different things with computer monitors

0:15:40.480,0:15:44.320
i mean that’s really what this is it’s

0:15:42.560,0:15:46.720
basically a restaurant that has a bunch

0:15:44.320,0:15:48.560
of computer monitors for windows

0:15:46.720,0:15:51.040
right and they’ve managed to sync them

0:15:48.560,0:15:54.440
up kudos to disney for coming up with

0:15:51.040,0:15:54.440
video technology

0:15:54.560,0:15:57.759
i’m i’m sorry it’s just

0:15:56.880,0:16:00.639
okay

0:15:57.759,0:16:02.320
it’s not that impressive to me okay

0:16:00.639,0:16:04.800
i wasn’t waiting for the restaurant to

0:16:02.320,0:16:07.120
open it wasn’t like whoa

0:16:04.800,0:16:08.880
sign me up but like i don’t know

0:16:07.120,0:16:10.800
like there’s so many other things that

0:16:08.880,0:16:12.480
disney needs to be doing to make the

0:16:10.800,0:16:15.040
experience right

0:16:12.480,0:16:16.399
that this isn’t even on that list of top

0:16:15.040,0:16:18.000
20.

0:16:16.399,0:16:20.240
okay so

0:16:18.000,0:16:22.240
anyway that was all we i didn’t give

0:16:20.240,0:16:24.240
anything else to bash disney about today

0:16:22.240,0:16:25.759
so i had to pick on something right to

0:16:24.240,0:16:28.079
find something

0:16:25.759,0:16:30.399
uh that was all we had for our disney

0:16:28.079,0:16:32.399
detective we’ll be right back and i’ll

0:16:30.399,0:16:36.199

this week in our tales from the edge of

0:17:50.960,0:17:54.880
the galaxy

0:17:52.960,0:17:56.880
darth vader might be joining the

0:17:54.880,0:17:58.960
mandalorian universe

0:17:56.880,0:18:01.840
inside the magic tells us

0:17:58.960,0:18:05.360
when mandalorian season 2 ended with its

0:18:01.840,0:18:06.559
spectacular final episode chapter 16 the

0:18:05.360,0:18:08.880
rescue

0:18:06.559,0:18:11.600
star wars fans were already processing a

0:18:08.880,0:18:13.760
lot before the credits even rolled

0:18:11.600,0:18:15.200
you had the return of jedi knight luke

0:18:13.760,0:18:17.440
skywalker

0:18:15.200,0:18:19.039
you had bounty hunter din jaron wielding

0:18:17.440,0:18:21.840
the darksaber and of course you had

0:18:19.039,0:18:23.840
grogu leaving with luke skywalker and

0:18:21.840,0:18:26.559
r2d2

0:18:23.840,0:18:28.559
then in a post credit scene

0:18:26.559,0:18:30.559
nobody was expecting mandalorian show

0:18:28.559,0:18:31.679
runner john favreau an executive

0:18:30.559,0:18:33.039
producer

0:18:31.679,0:18:35.760
dave filoni

0:18:33.039,0:18:37.360
announced a brand new series the book of

0:18:35.760,0:18:39.679
boba fett

0:18:37.360,0:18:42.880
the scene which took place some time

0:18:39.679,0:18:45.600
after fett and chan of ways with jaron

0:18:42.880,0:18:48.080
and his motley crew of heroes including

0:18:45.600,0:18:50.880
cara doon and bo katan

0:18:48.080,0:18:53.120
took us back to a very familiar location

0:18:50.880,0:18:56.240
in the star wars universe

0:18:53.120,0:18:57.919
jabba the hutt’s palace on tatooine

0:18:56.240,0:19:00.240
jabba of course

0:18:57.919,0:19:02.559
uh was killed by princess leia in star

0:19:00.240,0:19:04.400
wars episode four

0:19:02.559,0:19:06.320
five

0:19:04.400,0:19:09.039
six six six

0:19:06.320,0:19:10.880
episode six return of the jedi

0:19:09.039,0:19:12.640
there’s so many episodes now it’s hard

0:19:10.880,0:19:14.880
to keep them straight

0:19:12.640,0:19:16.559
but the mandalorian post-credits scene

0:19:14.880,0:19:19.360
in the mandalorian post-credits scene we

0:19:16.559,0:19:21.039
learn his former right-hand man twilight

0:19:19.360,0:19:23.200
bib fortuna

0:19:21.039,0:19:25.200
has taken his throne

0:19:23.200,0:19:27.600
shan makes quick work of fortuna’s

0:19:25.200,0:19:29.679
henchmen and frees a slave who is

0:19:27.600,0:19:32.720
shackled to the floor but leaves for

0:19:29.679,0:19:35.600
tuna himself for fat

0:19:32.720,0:19:36.799
once the twilak is unceremoniously

0:19:35.600,0:19:38.559
killed

0:19:36.799,0:19:40.400
fett takes the throne

0:19:38.559,0:19:41.840
signaling that he’s about to take

0:19:40.400,0:19:44.240
tatooine

0:19:41.840,0:19:46.960
and who knows where else in the star

0:19:44.240,0:19:48.720
wars galaxy for himself

0:19:46.960,0:19:50.960
to date the book of boba fett show

0:19:48.720,0:19:53.600
runner robert rodriguez and series

0:19:50.960,0:19:55.200
directors like favreau and filoni

0:19:53.600,0:19:57.520
have all remained

0:19:55.200,0:19:59.840
unsurprisingly tight-lipped about the

0:19:57.520,0:20:01.679
upcoming mandalorian spin-off

0:19:59.840,0:20:04.880
which favro has billed as the

0:20:01.679,0:20:07.600
mandalorian season 2.5

0:20:04.880,0:20:09.760
furthermore it has been confirmed that

0:20:07.600,0:20:12.559
the show will go back in time to the

0:20:09.760,0:20:14.720
original trilogy error perhaps telling

0:20:12.559,0:20:16.799
us once and for all how fat survived the

0:20:14.720,0:20:19.760
sarlacc pit

0:20:16.799,0:20:22.080
these details however scant have most

0:20:19.760,0:20:24.799
mando verse fans thinking

0:20:22.080,0:20:27.039
we are likely to see a number of cameos

0:20:24.799,0:20:29.600
throughout the show which is set to air

0:20:27.039,0:20:32.480
in december 2021

0:20:29.600,0:20:34.720
while marshall cobb vanth and han solar

0:20:32.480,0:20:37.440
are both front-runners to show up

0:20:34.720,0:20:40.080
there’s also a very viable possibility

0:20:37.440,0:20:43.200
that darth vader himself will make his

0:20:40.080,0:20:45.520
way into the mandalorian universe

0:20:43.200,0:20:47.760
fett after all has been connected to the

0:20:45.520,0:20:48.960
dark lord of the sith since star wars

0:20:47.760,0:20:50.400
episode

0:20:48.960,0:20:52.880
5

0:20:50.400,0:20:54.880
the empire strikes back and it seems

0:20:52.880,0:20:56.480
highly unlikely that rodriguez and his

0:20:54.880,0:20:58.799
team could stage a return to the

0:20:56.480,0:21:01.280
original trilogy error without including

0:20:58.799,0:21:03.760
vader in some capacity

0:21:01.280,0:21:05.600
what is perhaps most intriguing

0:21:03.760,0:21:08.400
is that we know that both the book of

0:21:05.600,0:21:11.440
boba fett and the upcoming deborah chao

0:21:08.400,0:21:13.679
series obi-wan kenobi both recently

0:21:11.440,0:21:15.370
finished filming at the volume sound

0:21:13.679,0:21:16.880
stage

0:21:15.370,0:21:19.840
[Music]

0:21:16.880,0:21:22.640
hayden christensen was of course on hand

0:21:19.840,0:21:24.799
for obi-wan kenobi as he will be

0:21:22.640,0:21:26.159
reprising his prequel trilogy role as

0:21:24.799,0:21:29.200
darth vader

0:21:26.159,0:21:31.120
alongside ewan mcgregor’s jedi master

0:21:29.200,0:21:33.520
obi-wan kenobi

0:21:31.120,0:21:36.400
who’s to say that christiansen didn’t

0:21:33.520,0:21:38.799
film scenes for both shows while he was

0:21:36.400,0:21:40.400
on the set for siri for the kenobi

0:21:38.799,0:21:42.840
series

0:21:40.400,0:21:45.360
this of course remains unconfirmed by

0:21:42.840,0:21:48.400
lucasfilm but the appearance of darth

0:21:45.360,0:21:50.159
vader in at least one flashback scene in

0:21:48.400,0:21:53.120
the book of boba fett

0:21:50.159,0:21:54.720
almost feels like a foregone conclusion

0:21:53.120,0:21:56.840
given the relationship between the

0:21:54.720,0:21:59.280
notorious bounty hunter and the sith

0:21:56.840,0:22:00.799
lord while this remains speculation at

0:21:59.280,0:22:03.120
this time

0:22:00.799,0:22:05.760
there’s even the possibility that the

0:22:03.120,0:22:08.320
book of boba fett could somehow tie

0:22:05.760,0:22:10.960
darth vader and grogu together

0:22:08.320,0:22:14.080
thanks to ahsoka tano we know that the

0:22:10.960,0:22:16.400
tiny foundling was present on coruscant

0:22:14.080,0:22:18.240
at the jedi temple during the execution

0:22:16.400,0:22:21.120
of order 66

0:22:18.240,0:22:23.840
and anakin’s siege on the younglings

0:22:21.120,0:22:26.240
fans want more of baby yoda’s origin

0:22:23.840,0:22:28.240
story and what better way to deliver

0:22:26.240,0:22:32.640
than to connect him to one of the most

0:22:28.240,0:22:34.960
famous star wars characters of all time

0:22:32.640,0:22:36.640
now you know i am not going to complain

0:22:34.960,0:22:39.200
at all if this is the route that we wind

0:22:36.640,0:22:41.919
up going right oh absolutely you’re

0:22:39.200,0:22:44.480
you want more vader all the time uh and

0:22:41.919,0:22:46.799
you know i had not even considered the

0:22:44.480,0:22:49.760
possibility that he might be making a

0:22:46.799,0:22:53.039
comeback in here because it is set

0:22:49.760,0:22:54.720
um post return of the giant right dead

0:22:53.039,0:22:56.320
and and that was the thing too when i

0:22:54.720,0:22:58.320
had first

0:22:56.320,0:23:00.960
heard that he might be and i’m like well

0:22:58.320,0:23:02.159
wait a second he’s we know he’s dead we

0:23:00.960,0:23:03.679
know

0:23:02.159,0:23:06.720
you know at the end of return of the

0:23:03.679,0:23:09.679
jedi look there’s his ghost he’s he’s

0:23:06.720,0:23:11.120
dead so how is he supposed to to make it

0:23:09.679,0:23:12.240
then reading that they were going to be

0:23:11.120,0:23:15.760
doing

0:23:12.240,0:23:20.080
flashbacks i was like all right that

0:23:15.760,0:23:22.400
makes sense because we don’t know where

0:23:20.080,0:23:24.480
boba fett’s been and the speculation is

0:23:22.400,0:23:26.080
right he has been very much tied because

0:23:24.480,0:23:27.679
he even even if you look at the novels

0:23:26.080,0:23:31.200
in the comics right

0:23:27.679,0:23:32.880
he’s fought vader on numerous occasions

0:23:31.200,0:23:36.080
and and beat them a couple of times

0:23:32.880,0:23:39.200
actually right uh so it would be an

0:23:36.080,0:23:41.279
awesome opportunity to see vader at all

0:23:39.200,0:23:44.480
it’d be even cooler to see vader in

0:23:41.279,0:23:46.960
action right that would be cool

0:23:44.480,0:23:48.840
speaking of seeing people ghosts in

0:23:46.960,0:23:51.840
particular in

0:23:48.840,0:23:53.200
action our second story comes from

0:23:51.840,0:23:54.960
gizmodo

0:25:36.799,0:25:41.840

its sequel

0:25:50.000,0:25:53.200
the sith lords it’s also worth

0:25:51.840,0:25:55.120
mentioning that

0:25:53.200,0:25:56.640
the next uh

0:25:55.120,0:25:58.080
role-playing adventure that we do is

0:25:56.640,0:25:59.600
gonna be set in that period as well

0:25:58.080,0:26:00.960
we’re gonna be doing a star wars role

0:25:59.600,0:26:03.919
playing

0:26:00.960,0:26:06.640
uh the third lesson by paul s kemp and

0:26:03.919,0:26:08.240
featuring art from maricopa follows old

0:26:06.640,0:26:11.919
republic villain

0:26:08.240,0:26:14.320
darth malgus it’s set after the empire’s

0:26:11.919,0:26:16.400
crushing route from the planet alduran

0:26:14.320,0:26:19.279
during the ongoing fire of the war

0:26:16.400,0:26:20.960
between the old republic and the sith

0:26:19.279,0:26:23.360
as depicted in one of the game’s

0:26:20.960,0:26:25.919
cinematic trailers which is

0:26:23.360,0:26:27.760
magnificently done called hope

0:26:25.919,0:26:29.520
so this is kind of i don’t know if

0:26:27.760,0:26:31.360
they’re going anywhere with this it

0:26:29.520,0:26:33.200
would be really neat to see them do

0:26:31.360,0:26:34.240
something else with this

0:26:33.200,0:26:36.000
um

0:26:34.240,0:26:38.480
but malgus is one of those recurring

0:26:36.000,0:26:40.799
characters in the game itself you know

0:26:38.480,0:26:42.880
he was a key character early in the game

0:26:40.799,0:26:44.400
and then you killed him and then he came

0:26:42.880,0:26:45.600
back and then you killed him and then he

0:26:44.400,0:26:46.640
came back

0:26:45.600,0:26:48.640
so

0:26:46.640,0:26:50.799
he’s very similar to

0:26:48.640,0:26:52.480
revan in that respect where revan’s died

0:26:50.799,0:26:54.480
probably a dozen times at this point in

0:26:52.480,0:26:57.360
time so you just can’t kill a good sith

0:26:54.480,0:26:59.360
the good you can’t keep a good sift down

0:26:57.360,0:27:01.679
now what is interesting is the the

0:26:59.360,0:27:04.640
website that this article came from

0:27:01.679,0:27:07.600
actually had an excerpt of

0:27:04.640,0:27:10.159
of the the book right so if anybody is

0:27:07.600,0:27:12.080
interested in in reading any of it

0:27:10.159,0:27:13.840
you can go to copyright reasons i did

0:27:12.080,0:27:15.679
not include that in the article right i

0:27:13.840,0:27:18.080
didn’t either so

0:27:15.679,0:27:19.919
just saying if you wanted to go and read

0:27:18.080,0:27:22.159
if you’re a fan of this here’s a way

0:27:19.919,0:27:24.799

0:30:09.840,0:30:15.440
uh so from the hollywood reporter it

0:30:12.559,0:30:18.480
seems that now we have another star that

0:30:15.440,0:30:20.320
has signed on to the uh new haunted

0:30:18.480,0:30:23.360
mansion movie that’s going to be coming

0:30:20.320,0:30:26.399
out so owen wilson has now joined the

0:30:23.360,0:30:28.960
cast of the haunted mansion uh disney’s

0:30:26.399,0:30:31.120
family adventure spookfest based on one

0:30:28.960,0:30:34.880
of the company’s signature theme park

0:30:31.120,0:30:37.840
rides so wilson joins la keith stanfield

0:30:34.880,0:30:39.760
and uh tiffany haddish in a role

0:30:37.840,0:30:42.000
of uh

0:30:39.760,0:30:44.799
that hasn’t been

0:30:42.000,0:30:46.960
determined as or hasn’t been mentioned

0:30:44.799,0:30:49.200
but it kind of sounds like

0:30:46.960,0:30:52.480
the whole movie is gonna be kind of an

0:30:49.200,0:30:54.480
ensemble in nature so story details are

0:30:52.480,0:30:56.480
still being kept in the dark

0:30:54.480,0:30:59.600
but it is known

0:30:56.480,0:31:02.480
that the film will follow a family that

0:30:59.600,0:31:05.360
moves into the mansion

0:31:02.480,0:31:07.440
however the characters around uh the

0:31:05.360,0:31:09.840
family will have you know

0:31:07.440,0:31:12.640
a big portion of the moonlight to shine

0:31:09.840,0:31:14.720
on them uh the product the the project

0:31:12.640,0:31:17.519
is actually going to begin shooting in

0:31:14.720,0:31:19.039
atlanta in october um and it is the

0:31:17.519,0:31:22.399
latest to be based on one of the

0:31:19.039,0:31:24.799
company’s classic rides obviously

0:31:22.399,0:31:27.519
uh over the summer we had jungle cruise

0:31:24.799,0:31:29.200
which was inspired by the theme park

0:31:27.519,0:31:32.399
attraction as well

0:31:29.200,0:31:35.279
so wilson became a fan a fan favorite

0:31:32.399,0:31:38.399
when he played mobius a middle manager

0:31:35.279,0:31:40.320
who works with tom hiddleston’s

0:31:46.399,0:31:51.360
the comedic actor also will be seen in

0:31:48.880,0:31:53.679
this falls the french dispatch the

0:31:51.360,0:31:55.200
latest film from frequent collaborator

0:31:53.679,0:31:57.600
wes anderson

0:31:55.200,0:32:00.559
and recently wrapped shooting on the

0:31:57.600,0:32:02.640
romantic comedy marry me opposite

0:32:00.559,0:32:04.399
jennifer lopez

0:32:02.640,0:32:07.200
you know i have to i have to say that i

0:32:04.399,0:32:08.480
was never really a fan of

0:32:07.200,0:32:13.039
of his

0:32:08.480,0:32:14.799
uh up until i saw loki yeah and i really

0:32:13.039,0:32:16.480
appreciated the job that he did in loki

0:32:14.799,0:32:18.240
so i’ll allow this

0:32:16.480,0:32:20.640
this is this is acceptable yeah and

0:32:18.240,0:32:23.360
there was somebody on

0:32:20.640,0:32:26.880
i think it was one of

0:32:23.360,0:32:29.760
my haunted mansion fan groups

0:32:26.880,0:32:32.880
on facebook somebody now again i don’t

0:32:29.760,0:32:34.720
know how real it was

0:32:32.880,0:32:37.600
seemed somebody who knew somebody who

0:32:34.720,0:32:39.440
knew somebody got a hold of a copy

0:32:37.600,0:32:42.799
of the script

0:32:39.440,0:32:46.240
and it kind of sounded like his

0:32:42.799,0:32:48.799
character was like a relative of master

0:32:46.240,0:32:50.799
gracie maybe this isn’t that behind the

0:32:48.799,0:32:53.120
scenes person who gave us all that bogus

0:32:50.799,0:32:54.640
information about the mandalorians no no

0:32:53.120,0:32:57.440
this was somebody completely different

0:32:54.640,0:32:59.679
so again it was kind of like

0:32:57.440,0:33:01.279
i don’t know if that’s true or not and

0:32:59.679,0:33:03.679
and everybody basically said i don’t

0:33:01.279,0:33:05.919
know maybe it you know so it’ll be

0:33:03.679,0:33:08.240
interesting to to see

0:33:05.919,0:33:10.240
when well and we we really don’t even

0:33:08.240,0:33:12.240
have any idea what the premise of the

0:33:10.240,0:33:13.279
plot is at this point in time so i’m

0:33:12.240,0:33:16.000
hoping

0:33:13.279,0:33:18.399
right it’s it’s one of the original

0:33:16.000,0:33:20.880
haunted mansion stories right that it’s

0:33:18.399,0:33:23.519
something a little bit more spooky right

0:33:20.880,0:33:25.440
but i really don’t hope just i hope this

0:33:23.519,0:33:27.519
is not a remake of the eddie murphy one

0:33:25.440,0:33:29.200
that was just terrible

0:33:27.519,0:33:31.279
it wasn’t horrible you liked it because

0:33:29.200,0:33:33.039
it was a haunted mansion oh yeah

0:33:31.279,0:33:34.720
yeah you could have smeared dog poo all

0:33:33.039,0:33:36.880
over the screen that you know you still

0:33:34.720,0:33:39.519
would have liked it no not not if there

0:33:36.880,0:33:41.279
was

0:33:39.519,0:33:42.799
i want something because the haunted

0:33:41.279,0:33:44.559
mansion and there’s a number of stories

0:33:42.799,0:33:46.960
associated with that oh absolutely and

0:33:44.559,0:33:49.679
all of them are really cool stories

0:33:46.960,0:33:51.519
they’re spooky ghost stories right right

0:33:49.679,0:33:53.039
you know they’re not these goofy love

0:33:51.519,0:33:54.720
stories that the original haunted

0:33:53.039,0:33:57.120
mansion one was it was just terrible

0:33:54.720,0:33:59.519
right no i got it so i’d love to see the

0:33:57.120,0:34:02.000
mario one i’m kind of a partial to the

0:33:59.519,0:34:04.480
the mariners on that mansion story

0:34:02.000,0:34:07.919
captain culpepper him yeah

0:34:12.240,0:34:17.119
oh is that it

0:34:14.720,0:34:21.599
i’m used to it jokes another service i

0:34:17.119,0:34:23.200
offer right right speaking of dad jokes

0:34:21.599,0:34:24.560
that has nothing to do with this next

0:34:23.200,0:34:26.639
story but

0:34:24.560,0:34:29.960
apparently fox entertainment bought the

0:34:26.639,0:34:33.200
rag tmz yeah so coming from

0:34:29.960,0:34:35.679
cnn.com it seems that tmz

0:34:33.200,0:34:38.560
is now part of fox entertainment the

0:34:35.679,0:34:40.800
company announced this past monday so

0:34:38.560,0:34:43.040
the news and entertainment brand best

0:34:40.800,0:34:44.240
known for breaking news on celebrity

gossips

0:34:44.240,0:34:48.720
gossip and deaths

0:34:46.480,0:34:50.480

0:34:48.720,0:34:51.359
yeah it was like

0:34:50.480,0:34:54.720
um

0:34:51.359,0:34:57.760
uh was previously owned by warner media

0:34:54.720,0:35:00.000
warner media’s parent company at t

0:34:57.760,0:35:02.640
has been shedding assets to help pay

0:35:00.000,0:35:04.400
down its debt and paved the way for

0:35:02.640,0:35:05.760
investments for g

0:35:04.400,0:35:09.920
for 5g

0:35:05.760,0:35:11.359
so the telecom giant sold an anime brand

0:35:09.920,0:35:13.520

everything away while selling it they’re

0:35:21.760,0:35:28.000
not giving it away uh so warner media is

0:35:28.000,0:35:32.880

news for this week

we’ll be back momentarily with our

0:37:45.680,0:37:53.119
insightful picks of the week

0:37:49.190,0:37:55.359
[Applause]

0:37:53.119,0:37:57.680
go for your insightful pick so my

0:37:55.359,0:38:00.960
insightful pic of the week i’m going

0:37:57.680,0:38:04.240
back to uh pbs happens to be a

0:38:00.960,0:38:07.760
uh mystery uh called the frankie drake

0:38:04.240,0:38:09.760
mysteries it is set in 1920s toronto and

0:38:07.760,0:38:12.240
the series follows the adventures of

0:38:09.760,0:38:14.640
frankie drake drake and her partner

0:38:12.240,0:38:16.560
trudy clark at the drake private

0:38:14.640,0:38:18.640
detectives agency

0:38:16.560,0:38:21.040
it’s the city’s only all-female

0:38:18.640,0:38:24.160
detective agency as they find themselves

0:38:21.040,0:38:25.440
fighting crime in an age of flyboys

0:38:24.160,0:38:28.880
gangsters

0:38:25.440,0:38:30.400
rum runners and speakeasies um

0:38:28.880,0:38:33.440
it’s one of those

0:38:30.400,0:38:36.480
shows where you don’t necessarily have

0:38:33.440,0:38:38.480
to watch it in order uh it seems

0:38:36.480,0:38:41.359
according to the information that i

0:38:38.480,0:38:43.920
found they only did four seasons of it

0:38:41.359,0:38:44.960
and it wasn’t renewed uh for anything

0:38:43.920,0:38:47.440
else so

0:38:44.960,0:38:50.640
the the four seasons kind of just

0:38:47.440,0:38:51.839
continue to play on on pbs um it

0:38:50.640,0:38:55.680
originally

0:38:51.839,0:38:57.440
uh was a canadian show uh that

0:38:55.680,0:39:00.400
was um

0:38:57.440,0:39:02.720
on canadian tv and then pbs

0:39:00.400,0:39:05.119
you know brought it over so that’s where

0:39:02.720,0:39:06.960
a lot of the seasons are um but it’s

0:39:05.119,0:39:10.400
interesting because you kind of get to

0:39:06.960,0:39:11.680
see that you know 1920s and every now

0:39:10.400,0:39:13.040
and then they have a couple of like

0:39:11.680,0:39:15.520
historical

0:39:13.040,0:39:18.240
figures that come in um but it’s

0:39:15.520,0:39:19.640
interesting to see like the underground

0:39:18.240,0:39:21.920
parts of things again like the

0:39:19.640,0:39:23.839
speakeasies and things like that and all

0:39:21.920,0:39:26.000
these different characters that kind of

0:39:23.839,0:39:29.119
come in and change throughout the the

0:39:26.000,0:39:31.119
season so um the shows are like 45

0:39:29.119,0:39:33.839
minutes long um

0:39:31.119,0:39:35.599
and it’s you know your classic whodunit

0:39:33.839,0:39:37.760
you know somebody always

0:39:35.599,0:39:40.560
gets killed or murdered and it’s you

0:39:37.760,0:39:42.640
know them to to figure out why or who

0:39:40.560,0:39:44.800
and and and all of that with their

0:39:42.640,0:39:47.119
little team that they have that they put

0:39:44.800,0:39:48.570
together so all right cool pick thank

0:39:47.119,0:39:51.510
you

0:39:48.570,0:39:52.960
[Applause]

0:39:51.510,0:39:55.359
[Music]

0:39:52.960,0:39:57.839
and my pick this week as promised is

0:39:55.359,0:39:59.520
kind of a cool one on netflix called

0:39:57.839,0:40:02.640
spycraft

0:39:59.520,0:40:04.800
spycraft is a new netflix docu-series

0:40:02.640,0:40:07.839
that takes viewers on a guided tour

0:40:04.800,0:40:09.920
through the work and tech of espionage

0:40:07.839,0:40:12.720
each of the eight half-hour episodes

0:40:09.920,0:40:15.280
focuses on a specific topic highlighting

0:40:12.720,0:40:17.440
an assortment of gadgets and techniques

0:40:15.280,0:40:20.160
then backing it all up with historical

0:40:17.440,0:40:22.400
context covering how these resources are

0:40:20.160,0:40:23.920
put to use in the field

0:40:22.400,0:40:26.160
spycraft is filled with little

0:40:23.920,0:40:27.200
historical nuggets of information such

0:40:26.160,0:40:29.040
as

0:40:27.200,0:40:31.599
there’s the bullet that was fitted with

0:40:29.040,0:40:33.520
a tiny microphone or the covert

0:40:31.599,0:40:35.760
communication device that transmits

0:40:33.520,0:40:38.800
messages through the water between two

0:40:35.760,0:40:41.440
specially designed fishing rods or the

0:40:38.800,0:40:44.560
squad of east german spies known as the

0:40:41.440,0:40:46.880
romeos as they were called

0:40:44.560,0:40:49.520
tasked with seducing women who were in a

0:40:46.880,0:40:51.599
position to pass along information

0:40:49.520,0:40:54.640
and who were deemed susceptible to acts

0:40:51.599,0:40:56.640
of quote sexbionage

0:40:54.640,0:40:58.400
personally i’ve been fascinated

0:40:56.640,0:41:00.480
by the technology and techniques of

0:40:58.400,0:41:02.400
spying for a long time

0:41:00.480,0:41:05.520
spycraft seems to check most of the

0:41:02.400,0:41:07.920
boxes as far as the guilty pleasures of

0:41:05.520,0:41:09.280
buying go with spycraft and

0:41:07.920,0:41:12.720
gadgets and

0:41:09.280,0:41:14.480
uh you know those cloak and dagger stuff

0:41:12.720,0:41:16.880
you get an intimate look at some of the

0:41:14.480,0:41:18.800
more unique pieces of technology you

0:41:16.880,0:41:20.960
also get a great history lesson on some

0:41:18.800,0:41:23.599
of the more dirty details of the spy

0:41:20.960,0:41:25.440
world broken down into the eight

0:41:23.599,0:41:27.520
episodes they do a great job of

0:41:25.440,0:41:28.800
dedicating just the right amount of time

0:41:27.520,0:41:29.839
to each

0:41:28.800,0:41:31.760
topic

0:41:29.839,0:41:33.920
and i can honestly say i learned a

0:41:31.760,0:41:35.280
number of things i didn’t know prior to

0:41:33.920,0:41:37.200
going into the show

0:41:35.280,0:41:39.440
and even more details on some of the

0:41:37.200,0:41:41.839
things that i did know so it’s a really

0:41:39.440,0:41:43.119
cool show it’s done documentary style

0:41:41.839,0:41:46.560
they do some

0:41:43.119,0:41:47.920
animations they they do some recreations

0:41:46.560,0:41:49.599
and they kind of keep the whole thing

0:41:47.920,0:41:51.680
moving pretty quickly they don’t get

0:41:49.599,0:41:54.000
bogged down in a lot of the

0:41:51.680,0:41:55.920
technical details that that tends to

0:41:54.000,0:41:58.880
bore people so

0:41:55.920,0:41:59.920
spycraft on netflix it’s an eight part

0:41:58.880,0:42:02.490
series

0:41:59.920,0:42:06.400
and we’ll be right back

0:43:16.720,0:43:20.560
our daughter being into legos like now

0:43:18.800,0:43:22.560

0:43:54.560,0:43:58.800
at the nurse shrine center that happens

0:43:56.800,0:44:02.640
to be we’ve never gone to the train show

0:43:58.800,0:44:06.640
we always just go to the the toy show

0:44:02.640,0:44:09.200
but lots of older toys retro toys

0:44:06.640,0:44:11.760
some new toy sometimes

0:44:09.200,0:44:14.800
i always find something there that i’m

0:44:11.760,0:44:16.720
either desperately looking for or never

0:44:14.800,0:44:18.160
thought i wanted but i always almost

0:44:16.720,0:44:21.200
always walk out of there with something

0:44:18.160,0:44:24.640
right right um you know so that’s and

0:44:21.200,0:44:26.800
you know it’s it’s a not a huge area so

0:44:24.640,0:44:29.119
you don’t usually spend a lot of time

0:44:26.800,0:44:30.880
there uh it’ll be interesting to see how

0:44:29.119,0:44:32.480
they do it

0:44:30.880,0:44:35.119
you know

0:44:32.480,0:44:37.200
during the the pandemic usually pretty

0:44:35.119,0:44:38.880
densely packed in there right so i don’t

0:44:37.200,0:44:40.640
know if they’re gonna be cutting down

0:44:38.880,0:44:43.200
the number of vendors right i was gonna

0:44:40.640,0:44:45.680
say they might not have as many vendors

0:44:43.200,0:44:47.680
there so it’ll be interesting uh

0:44:45.680,0:44:49.680
hopefully we’ll be able to uh to get

0:44:47.680,0:44:52.240
there for for that

0:44:49.680,0:44:55.280
