Join Brandon, Ken, LaTria, Ali, and their amazing friends as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future of film, television, music, animation, and how the Black experience relates to all of those outlets.



Essentially an audio Media Studies class if it were hosted after-hours in the back of a barbershop/beauty salon, the Say Something Nice Podcast goes beyond standard recaps and reviews to dive deep into the how and why behind the good, bad, and ugly of modern and classic entertainment.



We do it all with a healthy dose of passion, humor, and most of all, love. And we’ll always try to Say Something Nice.

    SSNP 326 | Disney+ Good, “The Mandalorian” Great, “Black Adam” Bad! (feat. @kuroverse)

    Disney's highly anticipated (and heavily promoted) streaming service is finally here! Is the Disney+ content (we'll discuss bugs and omissions in a later episode) what we've truly wished for upon a star, or are we poor, unfortunate souls for signing up? And what of The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars series ,and its breakout character (*redacted* - so cute!). All this plus Dwayne Johnson trying to Dwayne Johnsonify one of DC Comics' most murderous supervillains, whether Vin Diesel's Bloodshot movie will lead to someone playing Magnus: Robot Fighter with their thighs out, and the largest collection of classic Disney movie reviews that has ever been given (and probalby ever WILL be given) on this (or likely any) podcast ever!

    SSNP 325 | TLC’s “Crazysexycool”: 25 Years Later (feat. @kuroverse)

    SSNP 325 | TLC’s “Crazysexycool”: 25 Years Later (feat. @kuroverse)

    25 years ago, Atlanta pop/R&B royals Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas rose through the (literal) ashes of controversy and scandal to release one of the best-selling and best-loved R&B albums of the decade. In this special episode, the SSN Crew, and special guest Tim from the Kuroverse Corporation, do a track-by-track retrospective on TLC's sophomore album, "Crazysexycool." We cover behind-the-scenes stories, the group's origins (and its forgotten original "C", Crystal Jones), and how indeed you can sell ten million records and go broke the same year.



    Plus: reviews of the latest installment of "Watchmen" and Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman," a breakdown of Byron Allen's lawsuits against Comcast and Charter, Mo'Nique suing Comcast, and Elizabeth Banks' "Charlie's Angels" failing to take flight.

    SSNP 324 | 30 Years a Mermaid, 40 Years a Shining: “Doctor Sleep” and “The Little Mermaid Live”

    SSNP 324 | 30 Years a Mermaid, 40 Years a Shining: “Doctor Sleep” and “The Little Mermaid Live”

    In this episode, the SSN Crew indulges in two big discussions about two very different films celebrating anniversaries with new productions. First up, we discuss Stephen King's classic horror novel "The Shining," the subject of a classic film celebrating its 40th anniversary with a sequel, "Doctor Sleep." Can this new entry following an adult Danny Torrence mentoring a Black teenage girl live up to the legacy of the Stanley Kubrick classic?



    Then, we dive back in time again - and under the sea - to explore the dawn of the Disney Renaissance with the making of "The Little Mermaid." That film celebrated its 30th anniversary with a special ABC-TV screening of the animated musical featuring live-on-stage performances of its songs. How'd that work out for them?



    All this, plus a follow-up review of "Bigger" on BET+, reviews of "The Good Liar", HBO's "Watchmen", a discussion of what Paramount can/will do now that "Terminator: Dark Fate" and "Gemini Man" have flopped, and more - including a preview of a potential spin-off show, "Say Something Sexy!"

    SSNP 323 | Streaming Wars, Episode II: Attack of the HBO Max Smorgasbord

    SSNP 323 | Streaming Wars, Episode II: Attack of the HBO Max Smorgasbord

    A long time ago (last week), in a galaxy far, far away (Burbank), a media conglomerate announced a sprawling new steaming platform full of some of their most popular movies and TV shows, as well as new productions. No, it isn't Disney - it's Warner Bros., and, unlike with the Mouse House, there's far more hurdles to overcome. Can HBO Max overcome branding issues and a high monthly price to make new "Green Lantern." "Boondocks," and "Little Ellen" (!) productions successes?



    In this episode, the SSN Crew discusses HBO Max's content presentation, as well as Lori Loughlin staring down the barrel of a 50 year prison sentence, the Internet's best friends - "Game of Thrones" show runners David Benioff & D.B. Weiss - departing Star Wars for Netflix, and more bonus discussion on Eddie Murphy's "Dolemite is My Name!"



    SHOW NOTES:

    0:00:00: Say Something New: News

    ◦ HBO Max Presentation: "Green Lantern," "Strange Adventures," "Little Ellen," "Jellystone," and more...

    0:31:02: Say Something Nice Challenge

    ◦ Lori Laughlin hit with more charges, looking at 50 years in jail

    ◦ David Benioff & D.B. Weiss no longer writing Star Wars trilogy - quit or fired?

    0:31:02: "The Little Mermaid Live" Anticipation (this show was recorded before the broadcast)

    SSNP 322 | “Harriet” and “Dolemite is My Name”: Shades of Blackness

    SSNP 322 | “Harriet” and “Dolemite is My Name”: Shades of Blackness

    The SSN Crew returns to discuss two very different new movies featuring Black actors. First up is "Harriet," the hotly-debated biopic about Black American hero Harriet Tubman embroiled in multiple controversies, some reasonable, some blatant lies. Does the movie do justice to our legend, or is it a white savior movie featuring an implausible interracial love story? Or...is it neither?



    Then, we review Eddie Murphy's return to form in "Dolemite is My Name," with its look at the making of a blaxploitation classic and star turns for Wesley Snipes, Keegan-Michael Key, Tituss Burgess, Mike Epps, a heavily wigged T.I., and Da'Vine Joy Randolph. Plus, reviews of the first two episodes of HBO's new "Watchmen" series, the BET+ streaming show "Bigger," Taika Watiti's Oscar-bait Nazi dramedy "Jojo Rabbit," and Tyler Perry's new BET shows "The Oval" and "Sistas".
