Sometimes, it takes time for things to pass before you can come back around and reconnect. Sometimes it's as if no time has passed at all. Well we get the best of both worlds on this weeks episode of the Q.
Bj "The No Limit Honkey" Lange joins Mark, Gary and Jason as he travels back to the STL where he called home for many years. Mark and BJ were co-hosts on a weekly music video show called "Mega Music" back in 2001. Since those days, they have kept in contact and decided to re-connect for an episode. Which is great since it's the final episode of 2018!
First up, BJ discusses where he has been the past 15 solid years. From moving to LA, to acting, to improv and even into his cancer diagnosis which he has fought TWICE now and succeeded.
But don't think we stepped away from our core for another episode. No way. Donald Trump kept up his ridiculousness all the way through the holidays and up to the last days of the 2018. From asking a 7 yr old girl if Santa is real, all the way to throwing a temper tantrum and refusing to leave the white house for Christmas break when everyone else did. Finally he did something nice that no one on the Q can fault him for....he visited the troops in Iraq for Christmas...but only because he was shamed into it again. 1 Step forward, 2 steps back is his M.O.
From there, the show hits a lot of notes from the year 2018. A list of things you might have forgot happened in 2018 (weak list). As well as discussion on Oscar worthy performances and if Heath Ledger would have won for the Dark Knight had he not passed away.
This leads to the Final HOTSEAT of the Year with BJ and a discussion on what song gets you all emotional. Which one is the one that catches you off guard every time and you start to get the feels deep in your gut.
And Finally the guys discuss BJ's cancer diagnosis and how he fought it and some of the stories and people he works with to this day trying to help and better during their fight against prostate cancer. All this and much more on this episode of The Q!
Fake outrage is the thing on the interwebz today and unfortunately Mark, Bobby, Lucy and Dan deal with it a lot on the Q. In fact if it weren't for fake outrage from the political spectrum, the chances of the Q being successful are slim to none. But it exists and Mark has had it up to here with it on social media, the web and in the media. Mark discusses how there is a constant stream of it and how this played into the current situation in Ferguson, with ISIS and many other aspects of life in 2014.
Also on the show, an actress from the movie Django Unchained, Daniele Watts, was acosted by the police in outside a hollywood soundstage and once again the video went viral of the interaction with the police. But thats not the only one...a Fire Fighter from Oakland was also involved in a officer called situation that made the news and it was stated that it was "racially motivated". These two incidents have audio and video the team breaks down on the show to discuss whether the current rash of "against the police" feelings are justified. Are the police out of control or is it just a situation of fake outrage playing into the heads of people since the Ferguson situation.
Finally Producer Bobby and Mark bring up a movie they recently watched called "Gods Not Dead". Mark, Dan and Lucy discuss with Bobby the virtues of Christian based movies. This leads to a much deeper and longer discussion about the virtues of Religion in 2014 and where some of the stories come from within the bible and then it takes a turn for the serious. Mark decides to present a somewhat controversial view from a religious aspect in regards to some of the bigger stories of the year. This leads to very in depth talk about religious values and how religion should view certain things based off the general beliefs taught in church. Definitely a interesting thing to hear and very thought provoking.
