Whoa! It’s Visser of Ozcast’s 10th episode and it still feels just like it did the very first time!
We decided to put all of the fanfare on ice (we’re saving ourselves for our 1,000th episode!) and just get down to business. Very important business! Especially very important business if you’re Eric Spoelstra and a square peg/round hole team of tear-prone prima donnas.
Yup, we kick off the show dishing on America’s favorite team to hate: The Miami Heat, or as some people like to call them these days, Two and a Half Men (for the record, Sheen jokes are not funny anymore unless they come at the expense of Chris Boshtrich). After Sunday’s 4th straight loss (UPDATE: Now 5 after Portland blazed a trail of tears through South Beach last night) to the Bulls, the Heat are looking like a team primed for a second round playoff drubbing.
And while the Miami Heat have a medley of internal problems (late game inefficiency, questions surrounding alpha dog roles, a supporting cast not up to the challenge, a cry-snitching coach, etc.), their biggest problem on Sunday was Derrick Rose. At this point in the season, it’s no surprise to watch Rose carve up any team, but the way he methodically and efficiently got to the hoop and consistently finished looked like a bullet point on a M.V. P. resume.
From there, we take our talents to the silver screen to talk about two movies: Monsters and The Adjustment Bureau. One of which is a pleasant, unheralded surprise and an uncovered sci-fi gem with a modest budget. The other, the poor, poor, poor man’s Inception filled with plot holes, smoke and mirror stakes, and angels in hats!
So pull up a chair and grab a Q-tip. You’re going to want your ears fully optimized for this one.
