“Are you still watching?” asks Netflix as the seventh episode of a series we’ve been binging begins. First of all, nosy Netflix, it’s none of your business (aside from the fact it’s quite literally your business). And second of all, yes. Of course, we’re still watching.
When not playing online poker, we’ve all indulged in streaming platforms across the past year and with so many options available and so much content on each, it’s often tricky to pick what to watch.
Not for EPT champion Niall “Firaldo87” Farrell, mind. Over the past year, he’s put poker aside, spending most of his time being a dad and “streaming anything and everything”.
In the latest pop culture special edition of the Poker in the Ears podcast, James and Joe discuss some of the movies and TV shows they’ve watched in recent months – with Farrell’s assistance as their special guest reviewer.
Be warned: there are SPOILERS left, right and centre as the trio break down the Season 2 finale of ‘The Mandalorian’ and talk about the first few episodes of ‘WandaVision’, before moving onto ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ and Pixar’s ‘Soul’.
They finish with a critique of Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’, which James actually failed to watch because he was too engrossed in ‘The Morning Show’.
Finally, the 2007 adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ is the topic of ‘Superfan vs Stapes’, as Lisa Scott Gordon from the UK competes for a #SundayMillion ticket.
Joe is out of action for the next two weeks, so #PokerInTheEars is taking a brief hiatus. The guys will likely drop the next episode at the end of February. In the meantime, please don’t forget to comment, like and subscribe.
