Rachael and Amberlee discuss the FX series "The Strain."
113 – “The Master” – I Always Travel With Theatrical Lighting
This week Rachael and Amberlee wrap up their discussion of “The Strain.” While some things certainly happened in this episode, it just didn’t feel like a season finale.

Rachael and Amberlee look forward to the season finale while discussing the use of “brah,” bad facial hair, and creepy age differences.

In this episode of The Canary Underground Rachael is so done with Nazi flashbacks and Amberlee still finds Eichhorst hypnotic.

108 – “Creatures of the Night” – #MomWatch2014
This week: Surprise, racism! Thankfully, this is the only undesirable aspect of this episode. Though seriously, what was up with the racism? Rachael and Amberlee celebrate the return of Dutch!
