This week, we examine the quirky action film and Bob Odenkirk starrer, Nobody.

Odenkirk, of course, is best known for two exemplary shows, Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, and is hardly the first actor to spring to mind when you think “action.” But he acquires himself wonderfully here as a supposed family man with a shady shady past who crosses wires with some Russian goons.

On this episode:

  • John Wick
  • Bob Odenkirk
  • Road House
  • Canadian suburbs
  • A History of Violence/Eastern Promises
