The Cold Open #28–The Hell or High Water Edition

In The Cold Open #28, The Hell or High Water Edition, Matt Reynolds and Robert Sickels begin with a deep dive into the state of contemporary movie Westerns, using Hell or High Water and The Magnificent Seven as our jumping off point.  We then briefly discuss the rapidly evolving business model of the television industry in the age of viewing on demand. Our intro this edition is Townes Van Zandt’s “Dollar Bill Blues” and our outro is Nick Cave & Warren Ellis’ “Texas Midlands,” both of which are on the outstanding Hell or High Water soundtrack. The Cold Open is on iTunes, so please rate it and subscribe to it as you can both help others find us and also have all the Cold Open goodness delivered to you immediately upon publication!
