Why did Josh Brolin and Imogen Boots go from being top film actors to agreeing to be on a streaming sci-fi show? We do not know but we’re glad they are here. Ivan & Red leap into The Hole to escape some terrifying country brothers and are compelled by what they find on the other side.

A TV show is on the air right now with Julia Roberts, Betty Gilpin, Shea Whigham, Dan Stevens, Hamish Linklater, and yet nobody’s watching it! Despite the title, Gaslit is real and it’s on Starz? *checks notes* Starz. Huh. Ivan & Red cover the part of the screen with Sean Penn in a fat suit and dive in.

Paramount+ has hitched its Warthog to one of the most quintessential post 9/11 video game franchises of our time in its 90 Million Dollar show: Halo. Ivan & Red spent an hour with a Spartan’s groin humping rhythmically in their face so you don’t have to.

Just because a show breaks up the long running partnership of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, doesn’t mean two lads in a bunker can’t strengthen their friendship over the resulting prestige television episode. Ivan & Red load a roll of grainy, oversaturated film into the camera and  HBO Max project, Winning Time.

Robert Pattinson heads his first effort in the Batverse, and I for one welcome Batman! At The Disco. My Chemical Batman. Taking Bat Sunday. Dashbat Confessional. Bat New. He looks emo is what I’m saying. Ivan & Red slowly, menacingly, unhurriedly tromp into the studio to talk Matt Reeves’ The Batman.

Spider-Man has truly reached its Boho Days and gone all in on cross rights nostalgia that dates back a whole two decades. Ivan & Red pull on discarded Goblin masks and dive in to find out if they exist in the multiverse where Spider-Man: No Way Home is a good movie.

With a cast featuring Hodor, Hizdahr zo Loraq, and a despicable character murdered unexpectedly, is it Game of Thrones or a David Jenkins (People of Earth) comedy? Ivan & Red talk good jokes, competent management, A-List celebrity Rory Kinnear, pirates, and Edward Row Boat Hands.

I did not have Ben Stiller directing a sci-fi psychological thriller on my 2022 bingo cards, but with a cast featuring Adam Scott AND Patricia Arquette, I’ve got my lucky stamper at the ready. It’s not clear if Apple TV+ is a real streaming network, but it looks like they might have a second good show! Ivan & Red talk work/life balance, Braun design, and talk the coolest Rick who ever Ricken’d.

Steven Soderbergh looked at the bloated, over-indulgent run times on modern movies and made a perfect 89 minute thriller starring Zoë Kravitz in the techno thriller, KIMI. Ivan & Red talk casting comics, tight cabling, unfilmable software, and the absolute worst man to have as your Dentist. Remember: Every Good Podcast Starts with A Good Listener: BGaS 6.0.
