The opening music to the Water Cooler Podcast clues you in to one of our main topics this week. David Gordon Green’s Halloween returns to theaters, breaking box office records for the series. Premiering at the 2018 Toronto Film Festival, Halloween has also been warmly received by critics thanks, in part, to its female power narrative. But does that shift work for die-hard fans of the series? We talk about our reactions to the film and discuss the possibilities for future, inevitable sequels.
Additionally, Clarence finally saw The Wife. We talk about reactions to that film and Glenn Close’s chances at Oscar glory.
On the TV front, we’re wrapping our ridiculously early look at the 2019 Emmy race. Prepped for the biggest shake up of all, the Drama Series race enters the 2019 Emmy season with several major contenders potentially absent. We talk about what nominees are likely to repeat and what returning series will make it in. Finally, what new series, currently airing or future dated, stand the best shot at entering the 2019 Drama Series race.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
