    Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    On this episode of Good Pop, we check out Amazon Prime's new series Mr. & Mrs. Smith, a re-imagining of the 2005 film and the 1996 series, starring Maya Erskine and Donald Glover as two secret agents for hire who are paired up by an agency that matches up couples for special ops assignments. The show is part spy procedural, and part millennial romantic drama, and definitely not what we expected, but does it make the grade as good pop?

    The Tiger's Apprentice

    The Tiger's Apprentice

    Just in time for the Lunar New Year, we check out the new animated feature film from Paramount+, THE TIGER's APPRENTICE, an fantasy action story about a boy who discovers he's descended from a family of guardians and protects the world by an evil sorceress with the help of the zodiac warriors. Starring a cast of top shelf Asian voice talents, will this new animated film be good pop?

    American Fiction

    American Fiction

    On this edition of Good Pop, we check out the film Amercian Fiction, which recently picked up 5 Academy Award nominations, and found that we related hard to the dramedy's themes of the politics of representation, how diversity is commodified in media, and the trials and tribulations of taking care of elder family members.

    Echo

    Echo

    On this episode we dip back into the MCU (Spotlight) to discuss Echo, featuring the character of Maya Lopez, who we last saw as an antagonist for the Hawkeye mini-series, as she returns to her hometown in Oklahoma to lie low after killing her adopted uncle, The Kingpin, and has to reconcile reconnecting with her roots with her personal ambitions in taking over The Kingpin's criminal enterprise.

    The Brothers Sun

    The Brothers Sun

    For our first Good Pop of the new year, we check out the new Asian American action dramedy The Brothers Sun, starring MIchelle Yeoh as the matriarch of a Taiwanese triad living in hiding in the SGV with her younger son who has no idea he's in a crime family. Their lives are thrown into chaos when her eldest son arrives in town to protect the family from rival gangs. It feels like we've been waiting forever for an Asian American show set in the SGV, but does The Brothers Sun make it as good pop?

Good topics but not exactly SMEs

I really enjoy the topics you discuss but the hosts seem oddly unfamiliar with the material they refer to. Eg, wushu is not the same as wing Chun as mentioned during the martial arts episode.
