It’s been a long summer, and we’re still not done with Covid-19 (2:21). The guys at Taking It Down discuss their love of the Coen brothers (6:32) before complaining about what streaming services get wrong (10:28).
Blaine asks why does everyone recommend that we watch Umbrella Academy and Donovan tries to answer that vital question (15:43). Next, Adam and Blaine give what could be some final thoughts on the possible drift of the show I May Destroy You on HBO (18:35).
Then the big conversation begins: what album artwork perfectly hints to the music inside (24:28)? After the break, the guys discuss that Perry Mason finale and why it may be a signature HBO show for years (42:09).
During the break, the point is made that you can now support the podcast and The Alabama Take website by visiting BuyMeACoffee.com/TheAlabamaTake. This will help keep the site and the site’s various podcasts up and running! It’s like Patreon, but more fun.
