    David,
    I remember awhile back on the Hey Watch This podcast you said you thought OJ was innocent, or at least weren’t sure. Did the movie change your mind on that?

      I don’t think I ever actually thought that but this movie has certainly made me less likely to joke about such things.

    In regards to the sexist voters moment: I overheard a conversation (pre-election) at my work where a girl (!!) said she wouldn’t vote for Hillary because “what if she does something like launch nuclear weapons because she’s upset while she’s on her period?” I was fucking dumbfounded. Seriously?

    Love the Sully discussion. I’ve seen people acting upset by how the film depicts Sully’s nightmares and the way Eastwood depicts the event (the big critique seems to be “we know everything worked out fine, why show it multiple times and portray the government investigators as bad guys?”), but what they seem to overlook is how subtly heroic everyone is by simply doing their jobs (and for me, that include the investigators).
