J.J. Abrams + Justice League Dark

Read more
Is being mostly good really good enough?

Jake + Mitch share thoughts on the latest DC property hitting HBO Max. In some ways, they celebrate that JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK is finally getting the TV treatment. In others, they can't help but wonder: Is J.J. Abrams the best choice to run the show?

What starts as an innocent conversation on the new DC series turns into a full-blown Abrams examination. The guys go through his IMDb rap sheet, and ask a few questions along the way:

- Why does J.J. seem to only operate in existing properties?
- What's the best work he's ever done?
- Will this new JLD series work?

There's a lot to unpack when it comes to a popular name like Mr. Abrams. Regardless of where everyone lands we know the internet will be full of rumors and takes.

Give a listen, rate, and review!

To conclude our mini-series covering the films of J.J. Abrams, Kieran and I rank his six directorial efforts from our least to most favourite. Along the way we reflect on his career to date (including our thoughts on his TV work), what we would like to see next from Abrams as well as talk about 'Barry Lyndon' (naturally), the career of Peter Jackson, Stranger Things and all of the Mission Impossible films (and the importance of Dougray Scott's performance).

One of my favorite people to interview is Andrew Peterson. He's been on the show once before (in its previous incarnation), and he's a great guy to talk books, music, and theology with. Well, today I have some good news: Andrew joined Dave and me in the studio to talk creativity, music, books, and his beef with J.J. Abrams. Listen in to hear:

  • Where to get the best burrito in Nashville
  • The difference between writing a song, a fantasy/adventure story, and a memoir
  • The best advice to people who want to write but think they don't have the time
  • Andrew’s love of Victorian era ghost stories
  • What happened when Andrew and his wife thought they saw a UFO
  • Two theologians who are fans of murder mysteries
  • What’s happening with The Wingfeather Saga in 2020

A few of the books we mentioned on this episode:
