Mamo 1044: Quiblammo
Mamo! — the show about movies and popular culture — focuses this week on the identities of the various platforms in the Streaming Wars, and somehow does all of that without mentioning the demise of.... Quazzle? Quambo? Quimdim? Quizzle. Qui-gon. Quaqum. Quo.

MAMO 500: Fantastic Crimes And Where To Grind Them
Can you believe we've done 500 of these? Neither can we! It's time to convene a Wizengamot on the future fates of the Harry Potter Expanded Universe, as evidenced by the lukewarm-at-best reaction to J.K. Rowling and David Yates' FANTASTIC BEASTS 2: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD.

Mamo 475: The Man, The Myth
Less about the Joss Whedon clusterfuck than one of its underlying questions: what's the deal with aspirational morality?

Mamo 473: Dear White People
As Mamo gets near the end of its first season, we take in the formal mastery of DUNKIRK while wondering aloud: just white people? Really? And at least one of the Matts is a pretty hefty fan of GAME OF THRONES but greets this CONFEDERATE news with a hefty: really, white people? Really?

Mamo 472: We're Almost Up To The Breasts
Is intellectual curiosity a privilege, or a basic human value? Springing off Matt Zoller Seitz's twitter conversation this week about easy-access movies, we parse out how harshly one can judge anyone in this day and age for being behind the curve.

Mamo 471: Peak Mamo
Wonder Woman is here, and we dive deep into the suddenly-refreshing waters of the DCEU - with additional talk of Batman, the Justice League, Aquaman, and the cult of narrative around projects of this scale. Plus, Price's Disney boycott finally worked, and with Sense8 on its way out, peak TV may have finally peaked.

Mamo 464: Live From Trump Tower It's Saturday Night!
As if inspired by our recent comments re: our lane and his, Bozo POTUS doubled down on bringing the pop culture straight into the American government. Is Saturday Night Live now the voice of the resistance? Will corporations tilt towards, or away from, the cheesy-haired weirdo? If pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy, can PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES be the right course?

Mamo 463: Uber Iger
America is dying a very specific "Germany in the mid-1930s" sort of death, and even if we don't know the outcome, we're beginning to identify the collaborators. Not so Mamo-related when it's a taxi company, but what about when it's the chairman of Disney? What are our responsibilities to this "popular culture" we've been gabbing about for 12 years? Before you say "stay in your lane," sorry friends, this shit is our lane.

POWER!! Who has it? Who needs it? Who wants it? Who lost it? Team Mamo recaps the year 2016 in movers and shakers as the pop cultural landscape is wracked by celebrity deaths, digital doubles and orange-faced idiots. Hey 2016: don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. And for sure don’t fall down that flight of stairs, accidentally set yourself on fire and throw yourself off a bridge.
