Operation Kino 131: The Crazy State Of TV Criticism, Where Theories Grow Like Meth Empires

This week we're finally cracking down on the symbolism of Skyler White's hairdos, as we dig into modern TV criticism and the theorizing that can surround it. David fills us in on the rest of his Toronto Film Festival experience, Patches marvels at the miracle that is live looping in music, we borrow from our pal Joe Reid to play the IMDB game, and we pick our favorite actor-director pairs in honor of Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve in Prisoners.

Take a listen below and find your downloading options; for more from all of us, you can follow the show (@opkino), Da7e (@da7e), David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner), Patches (@misterpatches) and Katey (@kateyrich) on Twitter.

We also welcome your feedback, and there are lots of new places you can find us! Find us and like us at our Facebook page or call and leave us a voicemail at (914) 410-6450-- if we like it, we may play it on an upcoming show.
