We’ve covered how summer is the season of sequels, but so far this year we’ve avoided mentioning Tom Cruise. Well, no longer, because he’s in a—say it with me—sequel. This sequel’s special, though, because it’s in a franchise that has a colon right in the main title, and you know how much Daniel loves those. Franchises with colons in the title get to use dashes for the installment names, though, so that makes it a bit better. OK, so the movie’s Mission: Impossible—Fallout, but you already knew that. The only way we could say something unexpected about it was to talk about punctuation. We hope you’re happy.
Just so it’s not all Cruise all the time, though, let’s also take a minute to talk about some TV. Err, sort-of TV. Whatever we’re calling all these streaming services that are turning into premium cable networks. Hulu has a new show called Castle Rock that’s produced by JJ Abrams and draws from all over Stephen King’s body of work. It’s a show made for Josh to hate, but sadly he’s not here to talk about it. We’ll let Chris, Melody, and Daniel do that instead; we’re sure they’ll be just as pessimistic about it.
And with that, it’s off to Facebook. How many impossible missions will it take for the word “impossible” to lose all meaning? You decide!
