A new week brings a new episode of the Screen Babble podcast, with hosts Kelly Crichton and Steven Ross joined by NationalWorld digital journalist and now full-time co-host Benjii Jackson from here on in!

On this week’s episode, Steven takes a deep dive into Prime Video’s new reality competition, ‘007: Road to a Million’ featuring the incomparable Brian Cox, while Benjii discusses the importance of ‘The Sopranos’ both in terms of prestige television and the late James Gandolfini’s everlasting influence across the screen. 

The team also discussed what they’ve been watching over the last seven days, with Steven discussing three films he managed to catch: ‘The Royal Hotel,’ ‘The Killer,’ and Martin Scorcese’s latest epic, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ while Benjii regales us with how he coped with a case of Covid - in the loving arms of FX series ‘What We Do In The Shadows.’

Kelly also admits she has still been following ITV’s reboot of ‘Big Brother,’ while finally finishing up ‘The Bear’ and the television adaptation of ‘Boiling Point’ starring Stephen Graham.
