Iron Man And Giving Up

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and special guest Matt Thompson talk about 'Iron Man 3,' directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey, Jr. They'll discuss why the latest installment of the superhero series is about much more than a man and his gadgets. Also, why it surprised the panelists by passing the Bechdel test and featuring minimal robot vs. robot action. Next, they'll discuss pop culture they gave up on, including 'Game of Thrones,' 'American Idol' and 'Breaking Bad.' All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
