Sometimes you look back on your life and realize that you've grown into someone else. That along the way you learned new things about this world that changed your perspective.
Here at Wonka Watch, we realized we had changed. We had climbed a Fudge Mountain, turned around, and saw our reflection in the sugar-covered hills, 'til the Timothee Chalamet landslide brought us down into a deep well of despair and truth.
This episode is full of retractions, cringey high school videos, music theory, and seeds of hope for Wonka as we finally accept and support Mr. Chalamet as Young Willy Wonka.
