Tommy Metz leads an all-star cast of Krissy Lenz and Rob(by) Kubasko(z) in this SatMat Season Finale with trailers, games, and a list of movies you’re too young to watch.

But first, Krissy misunderstood the assignment and saw the wrong Elvis movie. Don’t worry, though, the mix-up leads to hijinx and inspiration for not one, but two new spin-off podcasts involving pineapples and exhaustive rewatches of other wrong Elvis movies.

Rob is healing, and used the time to catch up on a lot. Rob’s Homework: Red Eye, No Time to Die, Stranger Things, Strange New Worlds, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Along the way, Netflix is in trouble. They just fired another 300 people. Still, the stream screen is performing just fine, as more people are watching Stranger Things and Obi-Wan than Top Gun Maverick or Jurassic World. Netflix has responded by piloting their password-sharing crackdown. “Excellent” timing.

Meanwhile, tv+ dropped some serious cash on their Ted Lasso-esque plan to own all MLS with a ten-year ownership deal of MLS distribution with no black-outs. Says Eddy Cue (that’s Apple’s SVP of Services), “For the first time in the history of sports, fans will be able to access everything from a major professional sports league in one place.” In the history of sports, Mr. Cue? Wethinks you are a touch too proud. But still, cool for football hooligans.


This week’s list takes us back in time to the moments we were somehow allowed to see movies that were way out of our league: Movies we were too young to watch.
