The M&M Report: Talking 'The Lego Movie' and 'The Americans'

This week on the M&M Report, The Eagle columnist Devin Mitchell and lifestyle editor Mark Lieberman invited managing editor for news and Editor-In-Chief elect Heather Mongilio to discuss “The Lego Movie” and “The Americans.” Bonus: Mitchell delivered another classic rant in the return of Devin Doesn’t Like Things.

First, all three praised “The Lego Movie” for its vocal performances, animation, subversive themes and, of course, the cameo appearance by Shaquille O’Neal.

After that, Lieberman and Mongilio dissected one of their favorite shows, FX’s “The Americans.” From fancy wigs to fantastic performances, this show has it all.

Finally, Mitchell returned to unleash a torrent of criticisms and general animosity on this winter’s wicked weather in the latest installment of Devin Doesn’t Like Things.
