Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Hologram Tupac
By Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan
It's all smoke monsters and orange sherbet this week as Chris Ryan and I tackle the twin titans of Sunday-night television, Game of Thrones (1:30) and Mad Men (10:30). But talk of nihilism in Westeros and nostalgia on Madison Avenue eventually gave way to a more zeitgeisty discussion about holograms in the desert. Specifically, what does the rise of Hologram Tupac (22:10) say about our taste in music, our desire to relive our youth, and, as Chris put it, life on the bleeding edge of "Jedi technology"? Put down the LSD, Roger Sterling. We have a stranger trip for you.
