It’s an Avengers kind of day on Between the Streams, with the latest trailer bringing more mayhem, thrills, and a big, cartoony purple guy that sounds a lot like Josh Brolin. We’ll be discussing the latest look at the action in Avengers: Infinity War. We don’t know much about the plot aside from ethnic cleanser Thanos’ coming reign of destruction, but what we almost certainly do know is that a lot of Avengers are going to bite the big one over the course of this two-film arc (the title of the second of which is yet to be revealed), and at least a few are likely to do so when the first film arrives in May.
There’s plenty more to talk about this week, of course, including HBO’s plan to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on Game of Thrones spinoff series, which is part of the premium cable channel’s ever-escalating war against Netflix and its streaming compatriots for all the spoils of streaming land. Also this week, we’ll talk about John Wick: Chapter 3, Deadpool 2 reshoots, Sony’s growing Spider-Man villain universe, Margot Robbie’s Tarantino film role, Handmaid’s Tale season 2, the latest 007 auteur, and so much more.
So check us out today at 2 p.m. live, or download the podcast at the links below and take Between the Streams on the road.
Between the Streams
Between the Streams is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was and a preview for what’s ahead. We tackle the best and brightest movies and TV shows coming your way, including way too many superhero movies — and we love it.
At Between the Streams, we take on the big issues of our times, like whether or not Star Wars is going to go off the rails in the next few years (probably), or why five seasons is the ultimate zenith for any drama that wants to go out on top (thank you, Breaking Bad). We’re just as happy arguing about whether or not Alf was a quintessential ’80s sitcom as we are pondering Hollywood’s increasing penchant for reboots and nostalgia-driven mash-ups like Stranger Things. In short, we’re all about the coolest, most water cooler-worthy entertainment subjects that happen each and every week.
We do the tough part so you don’t have to, digging up all the stories you need to know about each Friday in a fun and succinct weekly chat. So sit back, grab something to drink, and enjoy the ride. It’s all entertainment from here; and let’s face it, we could all use the break.
