337: Justin Halpern, On Critical Consensus And Creative Differences

This week on the Frotcast, Justin Halpern, recently of Powerless, joins to talk about his cancelled show being Adam West’s final screen credit, accuse Vince of being the new Armond White, and tell apocryphal stories about Lord and Miller on the set of Method Man shows. We talk about the critical hive mind, what Lord and Miller must’ve done to get canned from the Han Solo movie, DC fans, Marvel, and more.
