Melvin & Dan put on some no-slips and get to work talking about The Bear! Corner!
- (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) 37-minutes of various topics: She-Hulk Episode 1 Twitter response, Warner Bros. can only afford to release two movies this year, and that nonsensical MoviePass revival (PATREON EXCLUSIVE)
- The Bear is mercifully efficient and accurately represents kitchen work.
- Melvin feels The Bear‘s realistic depiction of work-space experience and people relationships might actually so relatable that it becomes difficult to watch.
- Daniel has worked with coworkers just like some of the characters in The Bear.
- Melvin has an affinity and yearning for structure, so seeing a healthy and positive depiction of work and hierarchy in The Bear is greatly appreciated.
- Melvin jokingly says, “This is the most loving show I’ve seen… and I’ve seen The Chosen!” which heads into a retrospective on how Melvin & Dan have grown less fond of The Chosen since reviewing it in 2021.
- Talking about what makes Richard such a great, compelling character.
- The Bear has a really understated and kind way of depicting redemption and change, two things that require strong perseverance.
- Melvin kept thinking of both a Biblical and Cultural Christian perspective of The Bear‘s depiction of relationship strife and reconciliation, and how a Biblical approach to these issues will likely look different than a cultural Christian one.
