Sep 1, 2020

Like everyone, we at the Network were blindsided by the news of Chadwick Boseman's death at the age of 43 from colon cancer. Boseman left behind a towering legacy in the world of film and in the world as a cultural icon. We at the Network wanted give our thoughts on his passing and invite some special friends to offer their thoughts. We finish it off with our Oscar Spotlight episode on Black Panther with special guest Professor Tiffani Saunders. Rest in Power, Chadwick.

The Rundown is a day late this week but that's because there was just TOO MUCH NEWS coming from the Comic-Con International #AtHome event. Here's a recap of the biggest news coming from pop culture's premiere weekend including all the newest trailers emerging from the con.

“Rowing is as old as time itself. And for so long the terrain of favorite sons of famous families in places far, far away from the West Side; light years away.” Mary Mazzio’s new documentary A Most Beautiful Thing is about the first African American high school rowing team in the US. At least that’s what you would think at first glance. As the film slowly unfolds it becomes very clear that what this film is up to runs much, much deeper.

World Wrestling Entertainment

WWE has pushed forward in the months since the COVID-19 outbreak in the US. It hasn't been easy but they've been able to build on some storylines and give us one of the best champions we've had in a long time in Drew McIntyre. We've seen yet another evolution in these live shows as WWE has now taken to adding a limited audience by having upwards of 50 WWE trainees at social distances in the arena while separating the ring with plexiglass panels. It's added much to retrieving the old feeling of having a crowd and we might even have more evolution that we'll talk about later.

For the third month in a row we're breaking out the bracket to decide a champion! This time it's our #MayMusicMadness as the bracketmaster Lou has given us the chance to crown the Greatest 90s Song of All Time. Join our all-star panel as they make the picks and crown the champion of 90s music!
