Podcast Like It's 1999

Jun 27, 2018

To paraphrase the great 20th century philosopher Lisa Turtle,  "What is art? Are we art? Is art art? And, most importantly, is The Thomas Crown Affair art?"
Television writer/producers, and the subject of a recent Hollywood Reporter piece on their courtship, Stacy Traub (Glee, Blackish, SMILF) and Hunter Covington (It's Always Sunny, Alone Together, The Carmichael Show) join Phil and Kenny to discuss that very question. 
Does "The Thomas Crown Affair" rise to the level of the pieces its protagonist steals? Does it have the delicate touch of Manet's "The Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil?" Does it's scope and emotional heft more closely resemble Edward Burkne-Jones' "The Mirror of Venus?"  Is Pierce Brosnan's mysterious nature mirrored in Magritte's "The Son of Man?" Is Rene Russo's effortless elegance akin to that of Monet's "San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk?" Or is its simple structure and sophomoric execution more like Cassius Macellus Coolidge's "Dogs Playing Poker?"
