This Week’s MPN Podcast: December’s Most Anticipated Shows and Movies; ‘The Peripheral’ and ‘1899’ Wrapped Up; Best Shows of 2022
December 7, 2022
On this week’s episode of the Media Play News Podcast, hosts Charles Parkman and Charlie Showley introduce a new segment to the show: looking ahead to the coming month’s most anticipated streaming shows and movies, according to data collected by Whip Media. With 20 items on the list, there’s plenty for the hosts to chew on, and they share their opinions on what is worth looking forward to and what can be skipped. There’s plenty of Avatar 2 discussion as its premiere approaches and, to no one’s surprise, it’s the No. 1 most anticipated movie of December.
Charlie sums up his thoughts with “The Peripheral” and “1899” now that he’s finished both series. In summation, the former is a promising new sci-fi show with the potential to become great, but the latter doesn’t live up to its premise and, in the host’s opinion, fails to be consistent with its storytelling. Charles talks about a fun YouTube channel, “Watcher,” which has a recurring series “Puppet History,” consisting of exactly what the title implies: historical events reenacted by puppets.
Looking backward in time, Charlie and Charles dissect a list of top shows from 2022 according to The Economist, along with shows they themselves liked most. Stay tuned to the end to hear what is worth revisiting from this past year!
