You’ve reached Episode 68! Returning guests Liam (Spocklight) and Eleanor (Bygones) are back for Liam’s choice, Network. Network is the 1976 Sidney Lumet film starring Faye Dunaway, William Holder and Peter Finch, winning four Oscars and influencing much of modern film and tv (Aaron Sorkin and Black Mirror for example). Network is a black comedy and satire, although set in television it can be applied largely to all media. Watching with 2018 it is probably as absurd as it was to 1976 viewers, in that what was outrageous and far fetched then and the reality now. It practically invented reality tv. In Network the news becomes a programmed reality show to boost ratings, sound familiar??!!
[supsystic-tables id=70] Network was generally well received by Flixwatcher and guests, points it dropped on repeat viewing it picks up on small screen score, overall it scores 3.95, just below the highly recommended but still worth a watch if you’re curious.
