Heroes Reborn, The Emmys + More | Most Shows Recapped Ep 1

Listen to the Podcast

 

Listen to the podcast:

Rob Cesternino (@robcesternino), Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) and Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) launch the first official episode of their new weekly podcast series, MOST SHOWS RECAPPED on Post Show Recaps!

It’s as the name of the show suggests: Rob, Josh and Antonio are getting together every week to talk about most of the shows — starting with HEROES REBORN, the resurrected version of the NBC series about super-powered individuals living among humans. But the days of Peter Petrelli and Sylar are a thing of the past in the new version of the show, with new characters like the video game-dwelling Katana Girl and number one ice cream fan Tommy taking the main stage. The MSR hosts talk about the two-hour premiere, what’s working and what’s not, and what they remember from the first four seasons of the series.

Beyond Heroes, there’s talk about GAME OF THRONES sweeping the Emmys, plus some catching up on shows from the summer like MR. ROBOT and REVIEW, based on Antonio’s suggestion during last week’s unofficial episode. If you haven’t listened to that one, click here and do so!

  • Interesting, I was pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoyed Heroes. I was definitely in the camp of “didn’t think this was going to be a good idea”. But similarly to Rob I was quickly into a “this is actually pretty fun to have Heroes back”. We got a good mix of old characters and call backs with a new bunch of interesting diverse worldly people that I do feel compelled to follow for the next dozen episodes. It’s no season 1, it’s impossible to replicate that, but I do feel from that 2 hours that it is better than seasons 3 onwards.

    *sigh* so you all talk about the Emmy’s but neglected to mention Viola Davis’ historic win which was arguably THE moment of the night. I have long felt that the RHAP universe could do with a little bit of diversity. Please understand that this is not an indictment on anyone. I have been riding with Rob since the fishbowl years but there have been a number of moments that go right over your head, not because you aren’t thoughtful open people but moreso because your experiences don’t lend themselves to the mind shift required to grasp the gravity of certain moments. Then again how can you expect to foster diversity of thought when most everyone who represents this “universe” views the world through a similar prism? I guess I shouldn’t be all that surprised. One of your hosts did after all refer to a black actor as “colored” while I did point it out, it fell on deaf ears or at least that is how it felt.

    I have felt this way for some time and have remained largely silent partly because I don’t want to offend anyone but mostly because these types of posts do nothing more than elicit anger or Damon-esque type responses because you know our president is black…post racial America or whatever. I realize such talk makes some uncomfortable but I have long held my tongue and felt my own share of discomfort (i.e. any time Rob interviews certain BB 15 cast members) and did so in silent disdain but as a fan, subscriber, & champion of RHAP I feel it is my right to express myself without fear of retribution. Yes, I realize this is the internet. Going forward all I ask is for a little more mindfulness.

    Thank you

    P.S. In an entirely unrelated note, Rizzoli & Isles is onTNT not USA.

      It’s fuckin insane that it’s taken until 2015 for an African-American to win an Emmy for leading actress in a drama series.

    • Matthew Douglas Joseph Murphy

      So Robs supposed to go searching for people of different race? I think it’s good he’s hired everyone on their own merits. I don’t look at the crew and notice things like race but whatever.

      • Carole A.

        Let me be clear, I happen to like the RHAP team well enough: Josh, Antonio, Jessica, Curt et. al are thoughtful and intelligent individuals and I have enjoyed their contributions to the RHAP community. That being saiid, raising the issue of the importance of diversity and enjoying the contributions of the aforementioned hosts aren’t exactly diametrically opposed ideas.

        When one speaks of diversity it refers to many cross sections of population including: nationality, gender, age, etc. You however focused entirely on race. I found the flippancy with which you addressed the subject to be rather troubling. You made no effort to understand my POV and seemed to speak from your bubble of privilege.

        Word to the wise: if in the future you dare tread in these waters ever again take care to first acknowledge your privilege and then promptly check it at the door. My points were valid and the Emmy recap was yet another example of how someone from a different walk of life could have enhanced the discussion because as I said before none of the hosts seemed to grasp the gravity of Viola’s win.

        And by the way saying things like “I don’t look at the crew and notice things like race” doesn’t make you an enlightened being. Unless you’re blind you are feeding me some Pollyanna, after school special, we are the world, politically correct bulls—. Acknowledging and embracing the differences in others and allowing that to enrich your world is is true enlightenment but like you said, whatever…

        • Matthew Douglas Joseph Murphy

          Okay your right I have no idea what I’m talking about. I am white and a male therefore I am wrong about everything. But seriously I don’t think anyone watches her show so why would they talk about it? They could offer insight on game of thrones and all of that. And I only addressed race because that’s what you brought up. But if you want a gay Hispanic quadraplegic to give his insight on life struggle and things that don’t involve priveldge than I’m sure there’s a podcast out there for you.

    • Denise Bryant

      I hadn’t thought of it before, and I think that you’re right. I think that it is an innocent oversight though. People don’t think about how diversity or non-diversity affects other people.

      • Carole A.

        Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I sincerely appreciate YOUR acknowledgment of a very important issue.

    Hey guys, great show! Your discussion about how “Game of Thrones” finally won a Best Drama Emmy for a weak season might be explained by a technical change to the Emmy voting rules. According to an opinion piece in “Variety” and a press release from the Television Academy final voting for 2015 was opened to all 18K+ voters instead of limited to Blue Ribbon Panels. Most likely the Panels skewed older and more conservative in TV viewing habits and now with an open vote the results reflect more diverse tastes.

    Looking forward to the next show and love all the content Rob Has to Offer!

    Ugh BTX ep ended with a tween girl getting her nose cut off…. Dropped. Loved Heroes Reborn! !3 episodes is good for this, more condensed. I have a good idea how she’s dead if she’s dead. Have you guys seen the pre season videos?.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9syPaNcTXI Josh! My friends agrees that Penny guy is The Puppetmaster!

    I love this new podcast segment! I feel like there are so many shows that I would love to hear your thoughts about, that don’t deserve an entire podcast recap, and this is perfect!
    As far as new fall TV:
    -Limitless (esp if you watched the movie)
    -Quantico (I think Josh watches Scandal, so I think there’s a lot to compare with the Shonda shows)

    I’m not too sure what else you guys watch regularly, so if there are any shows that you’ve been keeping up with for a while that you recommend, that’d be great too.
