CW Arrowverse News

CW Arrowverse News

In our shortest episode to date, we sit down to talk a little about some things that are coming up on the CW Arrowverse shows. This includes some speculations about the Elseworld’s crossover event with Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, etc. We know that we will also get an introduction to Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, so we talk a little about that.

We also talk about a potential cameo that may be in that series, so stay tuned! Elseworlds Crossover begins on December 9, 2018 on The Flash and will continue on each of the subsequent shows, so make sure to check that out!

Liz goes on a very short shark rant…obvs.

The Doctor is in

Episode 107 – The Doctor is IN

In this episode, The Doctor is IN! We sit down to discuss the Series 11 premier of Doctor Who and the full introduction to the new Doctor, played by Jodie Whitaker. This is historic, as this is the first time the Doctor has been portrayed by a woman!

The Doctor Is In

After watching the season premiere of Doctor Who on October 7th, we had to sit down and discuss our thoughts on the new Doctor and Jodie Whitaker. In the past, we have each had issue with the new actor taking on the role, before eventually (some seriously eventually) coming around and loving them. Did this follow suit for Jodie? Listen in to find out!

We also discuss what we thought about the first episode, and talk though the majority of the plot line and characters, including what will become the new companions.

Finally, we check in with the wardrobe department to talk about the Doctor’s new look, and how it compared to her previous counterparts.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Episode 106 – Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

In this episode, we finally get back to Stars Hollow to review the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival. If you missed our review of the original Gilmore Girls series, you can check that out here: http://www.nerdybitches.com/episode-96-gilmore-girls/

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

When we decided to cover Gilmore Girls for the podcast, we quickly realized that there was no way for us to cover all 8 seasons PLUS the four-part Netflix revival in one show, so we broke it down into the OG series and the revival. In this show, we hit all of the what the fuckery of it all, what our characters have been up to since the series ended, and what in the world is happening with them during this one arbitrary year.

The revival was broken down into four 90-minute shows, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. We break down each episode to talk about what we liked, what we didn’t, and OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING moments. We follow Emily, Lorelei, and Rory Gilmore through a year to see if any of them have bothered to grow since the OG series ended.

One thing that we both really loved was the fact that this series was developed for Netflix, which meant they could get away with a lot of things that never would have flown with a network. This includes a few choice swear words, which when coming out of the mouth of Emily Gilmore is total life.

We also thoroughly enjoy the spiral downward of always-perfect Rory, who is just annoying in the way everything has always worked out for her.

We also get to check in on all of our favorite characters from the town.

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Episode 104 – Sheroes

In this episode, Heather and Liz sit down to discuss Sheroes: the women who inspired us as we grew up and influenced how we saw life. This term is also used to describe women who fight for women’s equality and rights. The term can be a little controversial, since the term “hero” is supposed to be gender neutral, but usually is geared towards men.

Sheroes

Who inspired us growing up? We talk about our direct sheores when we were kids, and some of the lack of female representation in the world (and some that were always there, but have just recently came to know about). Family, athletes, historical, and fictional figures all make the list.

Who inspires us NOW? Who are the women today who inspire us to work on making the world a better place? Public figures, media gurus, fictional women, and the youth of America.

Who are our historical female heroes? We each highlight a women in history who shaped the way we see the world, whether we knew their names or not. Hint: Heather and Liz both chose women from NASA’s history. Click HERE for the photo Heather references in the episode.

Episode 103 – Mainstreaming Nerd Culture Across Generations

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss mainstreaming nerd culture across generations. Has nerdom become more acceptable in mainstream society? Are nerds the new hipsters or exclusive club? Will Liz and Heather ever choose to clean their respective homes if they can get away with it? Tune in to this week’s episode to find out!

Mainstreaming Nerd Culture Across Generations

Heather has returned from her adventures with several comic cons in California and has much to say about them, compared to our experiences with Comicpalooza. Both are looking forward to the upcoming Fandemic Tour in Houston, so hopefully Liz will be able to attend and report.

Liz and Heather debate whether or not NERD has actually gone mainstream, or if it is specific to certain fandoms/genres. They also discuss how this has changed over the generations and some of the potential jumping off points.

We also talk quite a lot about cleaning (or not), and other off-the-rails topics, as usual.

Thank YOU!

We want to send a heartfelt thank you out to all of the people who made this episode and video happen! First, thank you to Producer Craig for always making sure we sound good, and for helping to host the game and keep things moving along! Second, thank you to Paul (aka Operaman) for always being the show’s #1 fan and supporter, and also for taking Liz’s niece out of the room so she wouldn’t be scarred for life!

Next, we of course want to take the ever talented Seale Adams for volunteering his time and abilities to take amazing video, both of this show and our Women in Podcasting panel. You are completely awesome!!

To our Houston-area podcast friends at Cult 45, Dogfin Studios, and Carla Sue Houston for being there to support us, as always! You guys are the best!

Thanks also to the University of Houston – Clear Lake’s The Signal for coming out to cover the event! This is Liz’s alma mater, so finding that they took an interest in our little dog and pony show was a delight! You can read more about that here: https://uhclthesignal.com/wordpress/2018/06/18/a-houston-natives-first-time-at-comicpalooza/

And finally, thank you to ALL of the strangers who came out to play the game with us and for being awesome participants! We couldn’t have done it without you! We were in a tough timeslot, and up against the Star Trek Q&A, so having a packed room was amazing!

xo, Liz and Heather
