    The BEST of 2020: Movies and TV Shows

    The BEST of 2020: Movies and TV Shows

    We bring you our first episode of 2021, that was actually planned for 2020. But if we learned anything from 2020 it is that sometimes things do not go according to plan and unexpected surprises may happen. So here we are, in the new year, looking back and wrapping up 2020.

    Since the last year was full of major changes, we decided to have a very different approach to our wrap-up episode as well. Eventually we ended up talking about movies that were not 2020 releases, TV shows of 2020 we enjoyed and finally movies that, against all odds, were released in 2020 and ended up being good.

    Structure:
    00:00 – Introduction
    03:00 – Quick chat
    13:30 – Main Discussion - Favourite Non-2020 Movies, TV-shows of 2020 & 2020 Movie Releases
    01:50:40 – Plugs and Goodbyes

    Episode 91: A Very Jolly Christmas Special

    Episode 91: A Very Jolly Christmas Special

    Merry Christmas!

    We are bringing you a very special Christmas related episode. Each of us picked a movie, more precisely a romance movie that has a little bit of Christmas in it! Then we sat down and talked about them and before we even realised we were discussing the disappearance of the romance genre, Nancy Meyers and the lack of charismatic actors everyone loves. So if this episode were a gift, it's a multi-layered adventure of surprises until the very bottom of a tall gift box!

    We wish you all the merriest of holidays and hope that despite of everything you will still find some joy and magic this holiday season. Stay safe!

    After six years, David Fincher is back on our, well, small screens with Netflix's Mank - a cinematic exploration of the roots of the "Greatest Movie Ever Made" Citizen Kane, and the man(k) behind it.

Along with that, we also look into our Interesting movies/TV shows of the fortnight, as is tradition.

    Episode 89: Normal People (2020) - Part II

    Episode 89: Normal People (2020) - Part II

    Are you normal people? Well, if so (and even if not) this two part episode discussion on the BBC+Hulu miniseries Normal People is just for you! Based on a book of the same name by Sally Rooney, we dive deep into the world of this character driven miniseries as well as the book. We talk passionately about Marianne, Connell and their romance for hours. No, we're not kidding, we had a lot to say and even now we feel like we left some things out.

    Since we had so much on our mind we decided to divide our discussion into two separate parts and subchapters. Unfortunately we did not have the time to dedicate an entire subchapter to Connell's chain but there's always 2021.

    Structure

    00:00 - Connell (spoilers)
    35:57- Marianne and Connell's relationship (spoilers)
    01:20:18 - Plugs and Goodbye

    Episode 88: Noirvember 2020

    Yes, it is that time of the year again- when we descend into the corrupted heart of society with troubled private eyes and dubious conmen and a dangerous dame or two, aka Noirvember!

    This year, instead of some common theme, we decided to watch any noir or neo-noir of our own choice and just have a fun discussion on them along with musings on the pressures of watching and appreciating classics, as well as our Interesting Movies/TV Shows of the Fortnight. 

    It's the stuff dreams are made of! (Okay no, but it's still fun!)

    00:00 - Introduction

    01:45 - Interesting Movie/TV Show of the Fortnight

    23:24 - Main discussion - Noirvember (Body Heat, The Long Goodbye, The Third Man)
