Rent was on FOX on January 25th and Blake is back for this special episode to discuss in with special guests Robert E G Black and newcomer Emily Kastner. The three of them break down the positives and negatives of the show, the injury news that plagued the show, whether the show could have been aired differently, who stood out from the cast, what made Blake cry and more. It's a fun talk and it may have convinced Blake to do a future project.
Blake finishes up Rent solo, breaking down everything from closing the door on the parents and homeless people (Voicemail #5, Finale A), Mark finally finishing his film, Roger finally finishing a song, Collins Robin Hooding and then Mimi fighting for her life. (Your Eyes) Then it's time to close things out in grand fashion (Finale B).

It's time to start the movie proper as it officially December 24, 1989. But before we do that, we look at how the Broadway show opens and how it sets up the world and then get into Rent and You'll See. The discussion goes through the questions how many candles can you possibly in their loft, how many posters does Maureen need to advertise her gig, why do they throw the fire out the window and do we agree with Benny's offer? It turns out that we may side with Benny more now as adults. Tune in and find out!
