    Episode 276: Put a Bonnet On Me, Daddy

    Episode 276: Put a Bonnet On Me, Daddy

    You guessed it, folks: we're talking about the new Netflix series Bridgerton this week! There are bosoms! They are heaving! There are dicks! They are pumping! There is more specific information about the nuts and bolts of pumping and nutting than you might anticipate! (About which Kathryn recently conducted a fascinating interview.) And, to top it all off, there is also special guest Christina Tucker, AKA our Lady Danbury Thirst Correspondent. In addition to Bridgerton, we are also discussing movie directors being whiny little babies about all their movies being simultaneously released to HBOMax and theaters. ENJOY! And, for next week, you'll want to watch episode one of Teenage Bounty Hunters, our newest TV Book Club pick.

    ATV Rerun: A Christmas Prince

    We're taking a week off! Pasted below are the original show notes for our 2017 episode about Netflix's A Christmas Prince. 

    It’s holiday time, so we dedicate the entire episode to a close reading of one of Netflix’s forays into the wide world of dedicated Christmas programming: the Hallmark Christmas-style movie A Christmas Prince. Strap in for lying! Mothra! Negging! Jellied meats! Birther scandals! Romance! Tokenism! Constitutional crises! And so much more!

    Episode 275: Happy holidays from The Bob Newhart Show

    Episode 275: Happy holidays from The Bob Newhart Show

    Sadly they stopped making new Christmas Prince movies (BOO!) so we are celebrating the holidays with an installment of The Old Type. This time we're watching several Christmas episodes of The Bob Newhart Show, a '70s sitcom that led Andrew and Margaret to ask Kathryn "uh why are we watching this?"

    Episode 274: Bull Corona

    Episode 274: Bull Corona

    This week, we're checking in with how TV is handling its uncomfortable task of depicting a pandemic that requires hot actors to cover 1/2 of their face. Spoiler: they aren't doing great! We start with a long, harrowing, collective look at the opening episode of Bull and its terrifying demon CGI baby and then continue on to touch upon: Black-ish, Super Store, The Good Doctor, and a handful of other programs. Obviously, Kathryn wrote about all of this really brilliantly. She also wrote astutely about the sexual harassment Eliza Dushku experienced on the set of Bull, a subject we touched upon at the beginning of the show.

If you like TV....

I’ve listened to this since the first episode. Love the relationship among the three hosts. There’s an almost sibling like banter. This podcast has introduced me to shows I might not have considered on my own, made me reevaluate some shows I had dismissed, and reaffirmed my love of television. It feels like hanging out with 3 good friends and chatting about television.

Excellent Podcast!

I love this podcast! I love the discussion and the humour. There are some very good takes from all three hosts and it's delightful to listen to. Also, I'm very, very close to watching Bones.
