On a new episode of Hard NOC Life, Shawn and Keith Chow have another talk about the week in Nerd Pop, with a special focus on rebooting and reimagining classic shows.
Before diving into the topic of the week, Keith and Shawn sing the praises of New York congressional candidate -- and low-key Nerd of Color-- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (1:30) and determine the difference between calling out someone for insufficient wokeness and calling out an actress like ScarJo for taking roles she shouldn't be taking (8:30). After that, they commemorate the tenth anniversary of The Dark Knight (15:00) and look ahead to DC's exciting slate of upcoming movies like Aquaman, Shazam, and a Cassandra Cain-led Birds of Prey (20:00). Later, they go into an extended conversation about rebooting fan-favorite shows like She-Ra (27:00) and which obscure properties Shawn would like to see brought back (32:00). Finally, Shawn and Keith share their favorite things in pop for the week, including looking forward to San Diego Comic-Con and celebrating all the Asian American Emmy nominees (44:00).
