    Episode 50: The Blanche Devereaux Episode

    Episode 50: The Blanche Devereaux Episode

    I've been wanting to celebrate Rue McClanahan's nuanced Golden Girl Blanche from the moment I first watched her figure out what "lesbian" meant. Blanche is more than just the original Samantha Jones--while she's best known for being a vivacious sexpot, Blanche has moments of wackiness, dismay, anger and confusion that make me love her even more. This week I'm highlighting ten different scenes in the series that show just how genius McClanahan's performance is (with some cameo moments from Bea and Betty!).

    Episode 49: Rose's Last Birthday

    Episode 49: Rose's Last Birthday

    Rose Nylund may seem like the least nuanced of the Golden Girls gals, but in one Season 6 episode, she got a whole scene to herself to prove otherwise. Betty White hand acts and self-interrupts and eventually even talks through tears in a brilliant flashback to her final birthday in St. Olaf, and this week I'm breaking it down beat by beat.

    Episode 48: The North Avenue Character Actresses (w/ Craig Filar)

    Episode 48: The North Avenue Character Actresses (w/ Craig Filar)

    The North Avenue Irregulars is an admittedly obscure 1979 Disney family film, and an unlikely source of nuance. But not only is the movie teeming with double entendre and a delightfully 70's color palette, it's filled to the brim with wackadoo set pieces featuring pitch-perfect comedic actressing from like Cloris Leachman, Kim Valentine, Virginia Capers, the infamous Patsy Kelly, and patron saint of the podcast herself, Barbara Harris, as a ragtag group of church ladies banding together to bring down organized crime in their town. I'm joined this week by Craig Filar, a longtime listener who is responsible for bringing this movie and Barbara Harris into my life.

    Episode 47: A Tearful Goodbye to Schitt's Creek (w/ Nick Kochanov!)

    Episode 47: A Tearful Goodbye to Schitt's Creek (w/ Nick Kochanov!)

    Canadian cult favorite "Schitt's Creek" went out on a high--not only with a satisfying final season but a post-series documentary/love letter "Best Wishes, Warmest Regards." (I spend the whole episode calling it "Best Wishes, Warm Regards," I know.) My Best Supporting Podcast co-host Nick Kochanov joins me this week to queen out on the most emotional moments, from the filming of Ted and Alexis's final dinner to The Letter from the moms to the heartbreaking Sarah Levy. We discuss the ways in which we both identify with David on an emotional level, our appreciation of the appreciation of Moira Rose as a gay icon and the sheer Canadianness of it all.

    Episode 46: Channeling My Inner Brenda Vaccaro

    Episode 46: Channeling My Inner Brenda Vaccaro

    Strange times call for strange content! This week I'm queening out on some recent favorite nuances that have found their way into my life in lockdown. From a perplexing Sylvia Miles in "Midnight Cowboy" to some really wackadoo Italian horror movie soundtracks to Best Supporting Actress winner compilations on YouTube, this is an odd sampling of what's keeping me sane these days. (And that includes Brenda Vaccaro.)

    Episode 45: I Am Trapped in Small, Private Elevator!

    Episode 45: I Am Trapped in Small, Private Elevator!

    I'm certainly empathetic to poor Mrs. Hilyard in 1964's sweaty, sleazy "Lady in a Cage"--trapped like a caged animal while the world outside seems to go mad. This week I queen out on some of my favorite acting choices from star Olivia DeHavilland, who sinks her teeth into one of the better "mature lady in peril" roles of the 60's and 70's. Plus: a swarthy James Caan, a blousy Ann Sothern and an overly-ambitious indictment of society at large. In these strange times, it's somehow exactly what I needed.

Fun, funny, informative & always entertaining!

I would stalk Colin Drucker if I was smart enough! But I’m not so I listen to ‘In The Details’ as it’s a great podcast for lovers of fine film & acting. Don’t expect run of the mill pieces for Colin to ‘queen out’ on...he delves deep into lesser known actors & films but always comes up with things you want to hear about & hunt down & watch for yourself.
