Over the past three seasons one character has been through more than any other on The Blacklist. Today Megan Boone stops by to chat with the guys about Agent Elizabeth Keen, but more so about Megan herself. In today’s world of media frenzy and social media especially, it is hard sometimes to remember that there is a person hearing those words someone types or speaks, and Megan shares with us how she is trying to assist in crafting a world for future generations that can be as civil online as we should be in person.

In season three, the unthinkable happened to Agent Keen. Where does Megan channel those feelings from? What drives her to create the character of Elizabeth Keen the way she has? When you hear this interview you will most certainly look at the character of Liz differently, and maybe even the world and your actions in it.

Every once in a while, a sequel comes along that makes you sit back, take stock, and wonder, “What the hell is Hollywood thinking?!”

Our topic this week is unnecessary sequels, why do we have them? Not the worst sequels, mind you, we are talking about the most UNNECESSARY sequels ever made. Movies where the original didn’t even do well financially, it’s been too many years, the original stars didn’t return, or maybe the story was already complete. Those movies where, by most standards of reasoning, a sequel shouldn’t even be a thought. And ultimately, what IS the most unnecessary movie sequel ever?

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

One of our most popular topics is our Movie Battle Royale. Eight great movies walk into the ring, eight favorites or classics. We then begin the process of voting for the best of the best, until we are left with one. Final. Champion. The greatest film of that genre in the known HO universe.

This time, we’re storming the beaches of Hollywood to identify the Greatest War Movie. What film about war spoke to us all the most? Could it be the heartbreak of Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan? How about the brutal tragedy in Platoon? Perhaps we’ll get a bit more classical with The Longest Day? But you can never rule out the power of Shakespeare in Henry V. This week, all bets are off and the battle is on as we settle this debate once and for all.
