Stephen Marche, Rachel Giese and Norm Wilner join guest host Piya Chattopadhyay to talk about the most discussed entertainment stories and debates of the week.

At issue today:

  • They come with the Oscar buzz, but not the audience. Is the film market for adult stories eroding?
  • How does a superhero show like Marvel's Jessica Jones tackle topics like psychological drama and sexual assault?
  • Why won't Star Wars: The Force Awakens have a screening for critics before the general release?
