Part 1 of my conversation with guest Matt Phillion as we discuss the decade in TV and movies.

Show notes:

- This decade has flown by

- 10 years ago, Matt was getting ready to move to Ireland

- Hard to rank the best movies and TV because there's so much we haven't seen

- Recording on the day that Disney+ launched

- Some bugs because of the huge demand on day 1

- Biggest change is the move to streaming content

- Binge-watching has become a huge trend

- Spoilers abound

- Jay: Don't read reviews until after I've watched something

- HBO's Watchmen series is pretty good

- So easy to fall behind on a show

- Shows switch to different streaming services

- We're so distracted that many people are doing multiple things while watching a show

- Short seasons are appealing because you can finish them quickly

- Rare to watch shows live

- Matt watched final season of LOST from Ireland, live with his family via a laptop

- Similarly, there's so much new music being released but a lot of it doesn't get heard

- Radio stations play a lot of the same music over and over

- More and more original programming on non-traditional outlets: PlayStation, Amazon Prime, Apple+

- So many streaming services available now

- The end goal is to replace your $200 cable bill with an equal amount spent on streaming services

- Jay: Cut the cord three years ago, went to all streaming

- You can't get everything

- Takes a long time to decide what to watch sometimes

- Sometimes we watch two different things while in the same room

- Seeing movies in a theater is great, but dealing with other people isn't

- Stay off social media if you don't want spoilers

- Jay: 10 years ago, I was watching late night talk shows every day

- Now, watch clips online the following day

- Jay: Haven't seen a Star Wars movie since 1983

- Something to be said for holding onto hard media

- Bringing back dead actors using AI

- Deep fakes are freaky and amazing

- Superhero movies became big moneymakers in the last decade

- The Shining happened because Kubrick was at a low spot and needed a hit

- The new Fantasy Island reboot is a horror movie

- To be continued
