    Flimsy as a Floozy

    NEAME willing, Kelly & Amy are proud to present their last Downton Abbey recap ever. All your favorites are here for the movie: Fashion Backwards, Amy Repeats History and a litany of goofy-ass callbacks to episodes past. They worry that this movie might get nominated for a gd Oscar, speculate about Matthew Goode's reaction to being contractually obligated to appear in this enjoyable but ultimately pointless thing, learn about hot gay sex throughout history, rejoice that there's basically no plot for Bates, call Isobel an Isoballer, get weepy at Maggie Smith's final scene as the Dowager Countess and Thomas' trip to the gay bar, ponder the inevitable zombie-laden sequel and lambast Branson one last time for being such a traitor to the cause of Irish independence.
    Finally, we can't thank you Cousins enough for your many, many years of loyal fandom. You've been with us through the good, the bad and the downright weird (Strumpet City, we're looking at you). There's not a Molesley among you, and we certainly hope you'll be along for whatever projects we cook up next. We won't be far away--you can find us on Twitter, where we often make humor jokes. Our handles are @kellyanneken & @TheCynicalBetch. See you on the internets!
    LUNCHEON OUT (for reals, though)!

    Pagets All the Way Down

    Kelly & Amy overcome texts not going through to bring you the golden episode of Victoria, S2E2. They chat about Tilda Swinton, Dadbert and DODubs dividing up all the arts, the deliciousness of Ernst, poor baby Ada Lovelace, the rudeness of Shakespeare fans, Victorian Shake Weights, Lord M playing The Sims, marriage advice from Lord Byron, and the fact that Vicky doesn't understand metaphors

Cousin Ashley ,

THE BEST PODCAST

Best Downton podcast ever. Love the show but listening to them echo my thoughts on a lot of points is hilarious. I love them both!

paddlethis ,

Not as funny as they think they are

Tried a few times to listen to this podcast and couldn’t finish the episode. Has potential but they waste so much time laughing at their own jokes and references. Perhaps more editing would make for a better podcast

Gabi Christie ,

Can’t stop coming back

I swear I’ve listened to every episode of the Crown coverage 5 times each. You two are so funny and personable and fantastic and I always make sure to have a few episodes downloaded before I travel anywhere. Keep up the awesome work!!
