    248 - Little Women

    248 - Little Women

    It's been awhile! Brian and Chris return from hiatus to talk LITTLE WOMEN, a sharp adaptation of a canonical text that neither of us have read or seen before! Listen as two men tell you why media that centres the experience of women is important! #Justice4Greta
    Note: This episode was recorded before the COVID-19 outbreak in North America. As such, it'll likely be our last episode recorded in the same location for awhile, but if you're wondering why we don't talk about it much in the ep, there you go.

    247 - Booksmart

    247 - Booksmart

    BOOKSMART is the movie of the year. Best picture winner, 2019, already locked up.
    Alright, this might be a small exaggeration. But BOOKSMART rules! Brian saw it on release and has been evangelical about it ever since! Chris finally saw it and now also knows the joy! We talk Olivia Wilde's directing debut, the incredible characters of Molly and Amy, the pitch perfect soundtrack, and debate the nature of cringe comedy. Let's get (consensually) bashed!

    246 - Bon Appetit

    246 - Bon Appetit

    The BON APPETIT brand has been making YouTube videos for years - so why are they taking off now? And why are we helplessly in love with them? In this ep, we celebrate the charming, Springfield-esque nature of the Test Kitchen, talk Bon Appetit's strong blend of personalities, and even do a rarely seen That Thing You Like draft to build our own three person cooking teams! Basically, we love Claire and Brad and Chris and all of them forever. Enjoy the lovefest.

    245 - Deadwood the Movie

    245 - Deadwood the Movie

    HBO's DEADWOOD was a Good+ show taken before its time. One Brian and Chris both love and have never really had the chance to talk about. But good news: 2019 saw the release of the long rumoured Deadwood movie! And it's FANTASTIC. (Brian cried.) We talk about wrapping up loose ends 13 years later and poignant grace notes for Al, Bullock and Trixie, plus the dialogue that's never been better.
    Fan of Deadwood? Did you love the movie? Or maybe hate it? Let us know on Twitter @TTYLshow!

    244 - Us

    244 - Us

    Jordan Peele's US is a wonder of a film, and maybe even more fun to pull apart than Get Out? After both seeing it a little belatedly, we sit down to celebrate the INCREDIBLE performance of Lupita Nyong'o and how the movie makes you complicit in cheering on oppression, and once again return to "elevated horror" as a bad term. Watch Us! Let us know what you thought of Us!

    243 - Pokemon Detective Pikachu

    243 - Pokemon Detective Pikachu

    Pokemon DETECTIVE PIKACHU is the live action Pokemon movie we all wanted when we were kids. Back when we wanted to be the very best. Like NO ONE ever was! We talk about Ryme City and its incredibly fully realized world, the Ryan Reynolds voice vs Pikachu cuteness, our thoughts on Pokemon that aren't the original 151, and decide which Pokemon we would be our Pokemon partners! Enjoy!

Literally the best

I can't get enough of these guys. Their friendship is magical and the way they talk about pop culture is not only entertaining, but thought provoking and respectful as well.

A wonderful podcast

The podcast is a real treat to listen to especially when you want to talk about a new show when none of your friends have seen it yet!
