On the 24th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman discuss Alpha, the survival epic about the first ever "boy and his dog" from writer/director Albert Hughes. It's a gorgeous looking movie set in 20,000BC with long, beautiful shots of the uncompromising wilderness, acted in an ancient language (with subtitles) and tells the story of the first man who ever bonded with a dog. It might not REALLY be the story of the first man and dog to bond, but it's a great one. Puzzle pieces include Apocalypto, 300, 10,000 B.C., and Annie.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Alpha (and any other movies we discussed)!
The song at the end of the episode is "Covered In Blankets," by The Pup Pups, aka my comedy side-project featuring all songs about my dogs (and in some cases sung BY my dogs)... Yeah, I'd say we've come a long way since the days that Alpha took place in.
