B.J. Novak’s ‘Vengeance’ hits theaters, Amazon’s ‘Paper Girls’ delivers and ‘Nope’ gets a big Yup | Streamed & Screened podcast

Wisc 1920 1

We spend the first chunk of this episode weighing in (spoiler free!) on Jordan Peele’s spin on the flying saucer genre, “Nope,” which was filled to bursting with big concepts, memorable images and over-the-top set pieces that deserve to be seen on the biggest screen you can find.

We also offer up a preview of “Vengeance,” a fictional riff on the true-crime podcast genre that was written and directed by B.J. Novak who many will likely know better as Ryan from “The Office,” as well as a look at “Paper Girls,” a soft sci-fi time travel series premiering on Amazon Prime that’s adapted from a comic by the absurdly prolific writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Runaways, Saga).

Streamed & Screened is a podcast about movies and TV hosted by Bruce Miller, an entertainment reporter for multiple decades who is now the editor of the Sioux City JournalJared McNett, a reporter for the Sioux City Journal, and Chris Lay, the podcast operations manager for Lee Enterprises.
