#47 – Writers Strike, NBC Turmoil, and ‘Citadel’ Spends $300 Million On Some Spy Stuff

The one where we delete your memories.

May 5, 2023

The Writers Guild of America is on strike demanding a more equitable deal for streaming rights and we’re here with the entirely biased news and analysis you deserve as a true connoisseur of streaming. Coincidentally (really!) we’re reviewing the $300 million Russo Brothers spy series Citadel that just premiered on Amazon Prime Video. (Spoiler alert: We think there are better ways to spend $300 million.)


  • We’ll take a look at which shows are immediately impacted by the strike.
  • Roy Wood Jr. hosts the White House Correspondents Dinner.
  • The Super Mario streaming story gets Super Confusing… again.
