Not much plot, just vibes. Richard Linklater gives us a look at the teenage years with doses of refreshing honesty, but keep in mind, this movie is still plenty problematic. But maybe that’s the point? Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey, and Ben Affleck star in this time capsule of the teenage years. Jim and A.Ron reflect on the cultural shifts between now and the setting of Dazed and Confused.
Season 2 is in the books and David S. Goyer is back to talk about it. As fans of the show, A.Ron and Jim have some burning questions that need answering. When did the Spacers make a deal with Hober? What was up with those lens effects? Is the Mule a Thespin? Though the future of Hollywood seems uncertain, Goyer is confident in the future plot developments of Season 3.
