I'm with Alyssa on Adam Sandler. There are others too. You are not alone.

All of Zaslav's decisions have been probably right given the current situation. Things would probably have been better if Warner Brothers and Discovery hadn't merged and taken on $15B of debt though.

I’m not a fan of Adam Sandler but I do watch his movies when the critics go wild, and uh, that’s okay. Uncut Gems was good. I totally get why MM2 is so popular.

LOVE this pod! That said, I think Ryan Murphy’s insane deal (and others like it) are not a SECONDARY question at all: MAX is a lazy solution to a problem no one seems to want to understand well enough to find an actual good solution. In addition to the Disney model to which Sonny refers, there is the Amazon come-play-here-and-embellish-as-you-choose model with mGM+, BritBox, and other add-ons. A reasonable approach; and, as with most things Amazon, it’s going to generate customer/use/price data everyone else is going to drool over😉

And I’m totally with Amanda re Adam Sandler.

I am totally in agreement with Amanda. I can not really stand Adam Sandler or Aniston. Also was very disappointed in the Clooney /Roberts movie.

totally mean comment. Sorry. I am Canadian so I must apologize. I love your pod cast. Never miss it, but if Adam Sandler was on every Netflix show, Sonny, that would be truly awful.
