In this penultimate episode before we go on a little hiatus from The Pick, we bring things full circle by talking about a film we all admitted to not having seen in the very first episode. Yes, we’re talking about crime thriller Training Day, the film that launched director Antoine Fuqua and writer David Ayer on their path of making pretty hit-or-miss tough-guy movies. We give a little bit of backstory of how the film was informed by LAPD’s complicated history, as well as general praise for Denzel Washington’s delightfully villainous turn as evil-doer Alonzo Harris.
