    Episode 07 - Hamilton

    Episode 07 - Hamilton

    We finally get around to talking about Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda's award-winning musical about the until-recently unsung Founding Father. We're as late to this party as we are with this episode, but we bring oodles of enthusiasm for legacy-building, revolutions, and Alexander Hamilton's fatally poor impulse control.

    Episode 06 - Down With Love

    Episode 06 - Down With Love

    This extremely belated episode goes into the nitty-gritty of Down With Love, the 2003 rom-com/pastiche of "no-sex sex comedies" from the 60s starring Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor. In this episode, we talk rom-com tropes, feminism, 60s set design, and why Down With Love - though largely ignored by both critics and audiences - is the perfect film to rehabilitate the rom-com genre.

    Episode 05 - The Good Place

    Episode 05 - The Good Place

    In this episode, we talk about The Good Place, that sitcom by the creator of Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn 99 that you've definitely heard about. Join us for a heated debate about the season one twist, the unusual pairing of philosophy and comedy, and which characters we think should hook up in season three.

    Episode 04 - The Powers That Be

    Episode 04 - The Powers That Be

    In this episode, we talk about the little-known but powerfully influential 90s sitcom, The Powers That Be. Much darker than an American sitcom has any right to be, this show you've never heard of was created by the folks who went on to create Friends, featured actors like David Hyde Pierce and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and helped to set the benchmark for modern political satire. Join us for this extract-heavy episode that should be accessible to both newcomers and veterans of the show.

    Content warning: due to TPTB's unbelievably black humour, this episode contains references to depression, anxiety, suicide, eating disorders, and euthanasia. But it's a comedy, we promise!

    Episode 03 - The Last Jedi

    Episode 03 - The Last Jedi

    After our internet took a brief sabbatical, we're back with a king-sized episode about the latest Star Wars film. Join us for an hour (and a bit) as we talk about plot holes, real holes, and whether the Force is a viable alternative to Skype.

    Episode 02 - Uncharted 4

    Episode 02 - Uncharted 4

    In this episode, we talk through our thoughts and feelings after the harrowing experience of finishing Uncharted 4. Tune in to hear us go through our Stages of Sam, Nate's emotional issues, and wax lyrical about Sully without ever finding the time to actually properly talk about Sully. (If this episode feels a little disjointed, it's because our original chat was almost two hours long.)
