I Just Don't See The Big Deal
Episode 25

The Reboot, Queen Be, and Worthless Grief in a Tiny Room

Alexander von Sternberg published on

After a two-month hiatus, the boys realized that they were getting too old for this shit, this shit being the 18 month process of watching Donald Trump run and win an election to the highest office in the land. So they went back to the drawing board, produced an idea for a rebooted franchise, and started anew with the next season of I Just Don't See The Big Deal by focusing on what they know how to do best: overanalyzing the shit out of movies. But it's no longer free-form. A format has been established and will be explained to you, dear listeners, all in good time.

So in this new and improved episode of I Just Don't See The Big Deal, Burgess skewers the Grammys in the only way he knows how (by using overwrought academic hipster logic), von Sternberg vents about a Facebook slight because that's just how insecure he is, and the boys discuss two  of their favorite films that both have been avoiding for years now. Strap in and get ready to understand why Room and/or The Counselor just ain't that big a deal.
