This week the word is Heist! The guys discuss classic heist movies and stories that follow the heist formula but aren’t usually thought of as heist stories. Keith describes a mind-melding heist RPG he’d like to run someday, and talks about the celebrity D&D game he just returned from filming. After the spoiler warning they discuss Mandalorian episodes 4-6, the season 1 finale of Watchmen, and Rick and Morty.
Spoiler warning: Contains Spoilers!
A note about this week’s cartoon: For those who may not recognize him, that’s Kylie from Fantastic Mr. Fox. But why Kylie and not Bilbo? We were confused too so we asked Goodloe. Turns out that since he just goes by the title and blurb when creating these cartoons, he didn’t realize the title was meant to refer to The Hobbit, and its 13 person team, and instead thought of The Lord of the Rings and the team of 9 that Gandalf anchors there. Then, as Goodloe explains, “Gandalf’s 13 would be playing off the trope of Oceans 11, 12, 13 etc where they add some weird tie in actor each sequel. So by the time they got to sequel 5 from the original 9 members of the fellowship it would be scraping the bottom of the sequel barrel and who else would be the worst member to add to the fellowship of the ring but the least capable member of another heist film.”
