Love Duck Dynasty? How about Storage Wars? Hoarders?
Youre not alone. And now you, along with millions upon millions of people, just might fall in love with A&Es new show, ‘Think Tank. Or not. Because it’s not like those other shows at all.
We sat down in the Magnet Theater lobby with one of the show’s actors, Ed Herbstman (The Mantzoukas Brothers), to get an inside scoop. It was a lively and wide-ranging conversation, and we hope you enjoy it.
Full Disclosure, Ed is one of the co-owners of Magnet Theater, and therefore we were very conscious of the appearance of a journalistic conflict of interest. In light of this possibility, we made every attempt to be even-handed and unbiased.
Magnet Theater: So. This show. What is it?
Ed Herbstman: Why do you ask that way? Are you mad at me?
MT: Oh, youre tough now because youre on a TV show?
EH: Wow. Do you hate me or something? Youre really hostile. Is this part of the interview?
MT: Cant handle it Mr. Im On a TV Show?
EH: First, its not technically a TV show. Its a web series.
MT: You calling me a liar?!
EH: Your phone just fell off the desk because youre pounding it so hard.
MT: SHUT UP! Ill burn your house down!!
EH: Whoa, not okay. Calm down please.
MT: burn it down motherfu—
