What the Flick?! Online Video Talk Show Goes Live February 19

What the Flick?! Online Video Talk Show Goes Live February 19

Thompson on Hollywood

I was as unhappy as anyone with the last iteration of At the Movies–the disastrous match-up of celeb-hugger Ben Lyons and Hollywood scion Ben Mankiewicz. But the latter, at least, had some potential as a professional cinephile, if not a serious film critic (I am blissfully happy with the current hosts, evenly-matched alpha males Michael Phillips and Tony Scott).

With their promise to deliver “entermation” (a word that offends me), I doubt that I am the target audience for this young-male-skewed show, but I will dutifully check out the Turner Classic Movie host’s new internet video talk show What the Flick?! with partners Rotten Tomatoes’ editor-in-chief Matt Atchity and Mank’s one-time co-host on The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur, a blogger for The Huffington Post. The weekly talk show launches live on February 19 at 2 pm PT/5 pm ET through the The Young Turks (TYT) Internet Hub. Like producer The Young Turks, What the Flick?! will have its own YouTube channel.

Presumably, separate from micro-managing TV producers and demo-chasing, this show has a chance at being what the hosts promise: unscripted, irreverent and unfiltered. That’s a plus.

Isn’t “infotainment” already a word?

Entermation…..that sounds like a disease. And the word offends me, if only because it’s being called a word.
