TV Series: Episode 19

We’re back at it, folks: time to tackle yet another episode of the masterpiece that is the Animorphs TV Series. This time we talk about episode 19 called Face Off: Part 1. There are three parts to this arc and, not surprisingly, there aren’t really any face offs to speak of in the whole thing. This is also yet another showing of how terrible TV show Ax is.

Oh also, Jarred will be joining us, as usual!

Game of Thrones (Season 8) w. Jodie McRobbie & Dustin Meisinger

Ep. 97

Jodie & Dustin & I are back from our previous episode covering Game of Thrones Seasons 1-7…and now it’s time to talk about Season 8.

Now that we’ve had time for the ashes to settle, we break down how we feel about the final season and how it fits into the series overall (numbers included), we address the highs, lows, and middles of these six episodes, and we revisit our hopeless predictions from before the season aired.

Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Ep. 58

We’re talking about the 2019 Netflix film staring Ali Wong & Randall Park: Always Be My Maybe.

Sophie & Mitch gush about their new favourite movie, how refreshing it is for a mid-level romantic comedy that doesn’t just repeat tired tropes, and how these characters’ relationships with food reflect their inner struggles and all that good stuff.

TV Series: Episode 18

We’re still chipping away at this block, people. Today we talk about the Animorphs TV series once again, this time about Episode 18: The Release, the one where the Kandrona is busted and Tom has a sore tummy because of it.

Also, this is the one with the kind of badass teacher who has a weird understanding with Jake and the rest of the bandits.

Okja (2017)

Ep. 57

We watched 2017’s Okja and now we’re going to talk about how we’ve been processing it.

We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of this film, the difference between making a movie about meat vs. one about corporatism, and we dive into the world of meat alternative burgers!

CW: This movie has a 3rd act that is essentially a pig-POV inside a breeding centre/slaughterhouse and Okja is personified to a degree that we wanted to ensure folks with sensitivities towards physical/sexual abuse are aware that those topics come up (around the 30 minute mark).

Game of Thrones (Seasons 1-7) w. Jodie McRobbie & Dustin Meisinger

Ep. 88

Winter has come! Jodie McRobbie & Dustin Meisinger are here to gush about seasons 1-7 of Game of Thrones!

Who will win this decade-long series? What has been some of the best (or worst) parts of this journey so far? Who are our favourite characters and who can just get roasted by dragonfire? What about the BOOKS? So give this episode a listen as you build up hype for the final season of Game of Thrones.

CW: Game of Thrones involves lots of violence, sexual violence, and the like, so heads-up as we’re talking about the whole series.

Plus we provide some channel updates right at the top of the episode, so don’t miss that.

TV Series: Episode 17

Mikael is not here this week so it’s up to Tessa, Brayden, and Jarred to wade into the next episode in the Animorphs TV Series: “Not My Problem.” Incidentally, this is also the thought going through Mikael’s head.

Get ready for some more Ellimist tomfoolery as Jake jumps back in time to a world where he never became an Animorph. Get ready for some bad twists!
