    Sort of Episode 50

    Y'all. Can you believe it. We've been sorting characters into Hogwarts houses for FIFTY EPISODES. You've been listening to us for 50 whole episodes! More than 50 hours! Have you listened to every single one? If you have, let us know, you win a cookie. This episode we do not sort any new characters, instead we look back on our last 49 episodes and talk about the characters we've already sorted and the friends who helped us sort them along the way. At least we tried to. We went of on many many tangents. We even talked about people who have never been on this podcast, go figure, but MAYBE THEY WILL BE SOON. Anyway! We hope you enjoy Sort of Brilliant: Unfiltered. If you don't, don't tell us, we'll be crushed. If you do, come be our friends and tell us to make a Patreon. Here's to 50 more!

    Sort of New Girl: Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Cece and Coach

    Sort of New Girl: Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Cece and Coach

    Hey sorters, whatcha doing? Hey sorters, which house ya going to? We're glad you're here so we can tell you. Finally, the long awaited New Girl episode is here, where we sort the most amount of people we've ever sorted in one episode. And we actually succeed in under 2 hours, can you believe it. Tune in to this wonderfully compact and reasonably lengthed episode where we sort Jessica Day, Nick Miller (from the streets of Chicago), (Winston) Schmidt, Winston Bishop (aka Winnie the Bish), Cece Parekh and Coach. Just Coach. These loft dwellers are a beautiful and eclectic mix of houses. Some are insane and some of them live amongst us, and some are insane but still manage to live amongst us (Nick Miller I'm literally in love with you). We all know you've seen this show. Everyone in the world has seen this show. Listen to the episode and this give us your thoughts. We want them. Don't let us down.

    47. Sort of Doctor Who: Amy, Rory and River

    47. Sort of Doctor Who: Amy, Rory and River

    It's our first threepeat! We're back in the world of Doctor Who to talk about 11's companions (and River, who was never a companion). Just like 10 has a favorite house, so it seems does 11. This era of Doctor Who is chock full of wibbly wobbly timey wimey, with River being a Pond kid and moving backwards while the Doctor and her parents more forward...it sure does make for some unique sorting. Are we here mostly for the women? Absolutely. Do we have thoughts about Rory? He's ok we guess. Anyway, screw Clara, screw the Weeping Angles and most of all screw anyone who thinks Amy and River are in any other house than the ones we say they're in. Listen to our episode and be schooled! Remember, we like sorting, sorting is cool.

    46. Sort of The Boys: Butcher, Homelander and Soldier Boy

    46. Sort of The Boys: Butcher, Homelander and Soldier Boy

    Vought tried to keep this information hidden, but we here at Sort of Brilliant knew no one would be able to rest until you knew what house all of these crazy Supes (and the man trying to kill them all) are in. Sure, now we're on Homelander's hit list for reading him for filth, and sure, maybe Butcher calls us a couple of cunts (non-affectionate) but at least Soldier Boy still loves us! What? Oh...he's back in the cryo-tank? Well, this is awkward. Ah. Anyway. We're back at it for Rachel's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL) to talk about some of the most unhinged men in media. Why do we continue to love unhinged men? The world may never know. Soldier Boy, if you're reading this after waking up again, call me.

    45. Sort of Star Wars: Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padmè

    45. Sort of Star Wars: Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padmè

    We go straight up uncivilized in this week's episode of Sort of Brilliant. Originally reluctant to dive back into the Star Wars universe, Rachel was convinced when she was repossessed with the soul of a shitlord memer. That's right - we're talking about the prequels. We sort Anakin (Darth Vader), Padme, and Obi-Wan Kenobi (or Ben for short. Because that makes sense). We had a lot of fun with this episode, please ignore the anti-Jedi propaganda and the Anakin and Kenobi apologist energy - we can't help we are, and they can't help who they are. All we can do is love them, and love to watch them hate (love) each other. THIS EPISODE WAS THE BOMB. Sorry it's two hours. Actually we're not. Listen to all of it, it's all worth it, even if it is a day late.

    44. Sort of Marvel: Jane, Valkyrie and Hela

    44. Sort of Marvel: Jane, Valkyrie and Hela

    It's 2AM on the day this podcast releases and I'm only now remembering to upload it. I think this slapstick type comedy matches the ~vibe~ of the episode, you know. Because I am too stunned by how beautiful these women are to remember my own name. This week, in honor of the release of Thor: Love and Thunder, we are sorting the women of Thor. That's right, this week is all about Jane, Valkyrie and Hela and they are better than ALL OF US. That's not an argument. They're also all different houses, although let's just say a certain house runs in the family (not for Loki though, he's adopted). So kick back, throw in some Guns N' Roses as very very low background music, and listen to us talk about women for an hour straight.

So Educational

While I know nothing of the HP houses, this podcast helps me understand them better as they sort my favorite fictional characters. Also,the arguements are fun!

Favorite Sorting Podcast!

I really love this podcast! The way they view the Hogwarts Houses is very intriguing! And I often agree with their sortings (with a couple of exceptions). In fact I blame them for making me sort characters from my favorite shows/books!

It’s A Yes From Me

If you enjoy personality tests, character analysis, Harry Potter, or TV, just do yourself a favor and listen to this podcast already. Rachel and Lauren are so fun and I love listening to them analyze (*ahem* and fight about) some of my favorite characters. Top episodes I’ve listened to so far are: Superstore, Community, and Star Wars! 👏🏽
