Taking It Down 91: Midnight Mass and The Many Saints of Newark

It's Taking It Down, the pop culture podcast from The Alabama Take!

Listen with the player above or download/listen from your own podcast app! Enjoy and share with a friend!

For this week’s episode, Taking It Down just has to discuss the college football chaos (0:59). Then the group decides to retire the COVID segment, but for how long (1:49)? The gang determines what to think about the two big trailers from the past week, which show more about the MCU’s Eternals and The Beatles: Get Back, yet what do they offer viewers (2:06)?

One of the two big segments of the week involves some analysis of the first episodes of Netflix’s new horror show Midnight Mass (7:38). After a cursory check-in with the insane Netflix show Squid Game (33:41), Taking It Down then wraps with the second segment which involves thoughts on the HBO movie The Many Saints of Newark and what it adds to The Sopranos mythos (36:15).

Subscribe, rate, review, and share the show with others! Next Tuesday, Taking It Down will be back with more from movies, television, music, or books!

    MM is my favorite of the three too. The spiritual/religious aspect of the show is considered seriously, unlike most horror (usually rendered like a caricature of faith) and that terrified my shit.

    • God, it scares me sometimes! (I get the feeling you and I have similar childhood backgrounds.)

      I’m pretty enthralled with this one. Me and the guys keep messaging one another in our group text and we all want Bev Keane to die. We’re all done with EP4 other than Adam; I’ve also been a little shocked by some plot points. That’s all I’ll say here, though!
