What’s particularly interesting is how much he talks up Bret Ellis’s wealth.

Todd Michael Schultz’s father is Bill Schultz. Bill Schultz was a producer on The Simpsons. Not just any producer. He was a producer from 1992 to 1998. Golden Age Simpsons. Those episodes, arguably among the greatest achievements in television, will air forever. Those episodes would have made BS more money than Bret Ellis could dream of.

So it’s a little odd that he would puff up BE like that when no one under 30 knows who Bret Ellis is. Everyone under 90 knows what The Simpsons is, thanks to the early seasons that Bill Schultz produced.

Bill Schultz won an Emmy for this:

De gustibus, r105. What I wanted to say is that you don’t have to love BEE to recognize that he’s a very good writer, and has written at least one masterpiece in American Psycho.

TBH, I stopped listening to his podcast aeons ago, so it might have improved since then. But I gave up because the first half of any episode was dedicated to “how great I am,” and there was just so much I could take of his narcissism.

by Anonymousreply 106February 18, 2024 6:26 PM

R106 The Shards is his magnum opus. I think it's better than American Psycho.

You really think the first half of his podcast is "how great I am?" Back a few years ago, the first half would be dedicated to film and TV reviews, from which would sometimes spring personal anecdotes. Then, he spent a (glorious) year reading The Shards, chapter by chapter. When that ended, the show went from 3+ hours biweekly to 90 minutes weekly. He no longer dedicates the first half to reviews, he goes right to his guest. But there are weeks dedicated to reviews, and then he answers questions from listeners.

It was NEVER "How great am I?" In fact, he tends to be pretty self depreciating. As I suggested before in this thread, that literary prince of darkness persona was thrust on him- he may have played it up for a while in the '80s and '90s, but no more. He now goes to bed at 10pm. And it turns out that while moody at times, he's actually a nice person. He's positively avuncular.
