2016 Netflix Originals Part 2

2016 Netflix Originals Part 2

We have decided that there should be Netflix for pets. But, since there isn’t currently, we can only talk about the one for peoples. So, here is the rest of 2016.

  • Orange is the New Black – We don’t care for the main characters, but Red is awesome. Also an interesting look at the difference between private and public prison institutions. Just look what happened to Luke Cage!
  • Voltron: Legendary Defender – Absolutely excellent! Completely worth the watch, especially if you aren’t into other areas of anime. Season 2 will be out in January 2017.
  • BoJack Horsemen – BoJack has issues. The animal jokes throughout are funny.
  • Stranger Things – This show is crazy good. The 1980s nostalgia alone is worth the watch. Mystery/thriller/sci-fi that really represents the 80s. It’s dark and gritty. We talk about the differences between the disappearances of Will and Barb and the importance of an active imagination. We go in depth with the different characters and actors on this one.
  • Luke Cage – Damn. He is hot. Aside from the hotness, this show is really good. Definitely one to check out and binge. Long discussion here.
  • Black Mirror – Totally fucked up, so it may take some time to get into. Kind of like your Klout score becoming your net worth.
  • Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – A 4 part 90-min series catching up on what happened since we last visited Stars Hollow.

Be sure to leave us a 5-star review on iTunes or wherever. Because we are awesome.

2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

Episode 57 – 2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss all of the 2016 Netflix Originals Part 1 that we have seen or heard good things about. Sit back and enjoy the first part, as we blab way too much for a single episode.

2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

We are also drinking on this episode – Fireball whiskey + Cream soda = Delicious! Plus a random discussion about coffee.

2016 Netflix Originals Part 1

  • Fuller House – Definitely worth the watch if you were a fan of the original series back in the 90s or in the last two decades as it has run in syndication.
  • Daredevil (Season 2) – Marvel has done an awesome job on these Netflix episodes because they can do so much in this format that can’t be done on network TV.
  • PeeWee’s Big Holiday – Same personality as back in the day, so check it out. Totally makes you forget about him jerking off in a movie theater.
  • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 2) – So freaking funny. Enough said.
  • Patton Oswalt’s Talking for Clapping (stand-up comedy special) – So unbelievably funny. He is delightful. Also recommended: Lady Dynamite. Also, check out the College Humor series of BadMan (a take on Batman) – Patton Oswalt plays the Penguin and it’s awesome.
  • House of Cards – Creepy and awesome.
  • Grace and Frankie – Meh. This one had high hopes, but hasn’t really thrilled me yet.

2016 Movie Review - Part 1

Episode 51 – 2016 Movie Review Part 1

In this episode, Heather and Liz cover a 2016 Movie Review – Part 1 for our annual episode. Make sure to catch up next week with the second part of the episode. Last year, we did our first year-in-movies review, so we are excited to bring this back as an annual event.

2016 Movie Review Part 1

Movies – Part 1 (January through May)

Listen in as we talk month by month through the first half of the year covering the movies we did see versus the ones we wanted to see.

January

  • The Hateful Eight – Samuel L Jackson at his best. This technically came out in January, though it did have a release date in December.
  • The Witch – how did you like this, horror fans?

February

  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – We have a book club coming up on this book in the next few weeks, so we haven’t seen the movie yet. Stay tuned!
  • Zoolander 2
  • DEADPOOL!!! We both just LOVED this freaking movie. We didn’t know what to expect, but it blew all expectations out of the water. So funny and bloody at the same time. SUPER offensive, so stop taking your kids to see these thing! We are thinking of doing a movie commentary on this movie because there is so much to talk about. We apologize for not getting an episode out earlier, but this year has been crazy busy. Well done, MCU! Well done indeed.
  • Zootopia – This movie was really cute! Great messages and fun for both kids and adults.

March

  • 10 Cloverfield Lane – Didn’t see it, but Heather is looking forward to it.
  • Whiskey Tango Foxtrot – A maybe later movie
  • Divergent: Alligient – OMG This totally made us happy that it crapped out and went straight to distribution. We absolutely hated the third useless book of the series when we did our book club episode, so this just gave us a lot of joy. Of course, we still keep on ranting.
  • Batman vs. Superman – We are so tired of talking about this movie. The extended edition was definitely better than the theatrical release. It was really curious why they would cut out these SUPER IMPORTANT plot points in favor of the crap scenes they let in. Wonder Woman is still the best part of this movie. Stop fucking it up, DC.
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 – We didn’t get a chance to see this, but really want to.

April

  • The Boss – We didn’t get around to seeing this. The trailer didn’t do as much for us as Spy or The Heat. We hope it is great, but we haven’t seen it. Probably Netflix later.
  • Hard Core Henry – We aren’t big on the shaky-cam first person stuff. It is nauseating.
  • The Huntsman: Winter’s War – Didn’t see, but are more interested in seeing it now that it doesn’t have Kristen Stewart.
  • The Jungle Book (live action)
  • Keanu

May (Part 1)

  • Captain America: Civil War – WOOOOOO!!! We both really loved this one! We really meant to do an entire movie review on this one, but didn’t get around to it with all of our Comicpalooza daze. Team Cap vs. Team Tony – we aren’t really buying the lineup here.

Catch us next week for the second half of our annual movie review!

Episode 1 – Introduction to the Nerdy Bitches Podcast

Nerdy Bitches Podcast

Nerdy Bitches Logo Created by Heather

Welcome to the Nerdy Bitches podcast!

In this introduction episode, Liz and Heather discuss all manner of nerdy topics, including Star Wars, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, and more! Liz is the owner and blogger at Self Saving Princess, and Heather, in her words, is just your average Nerdy Bitch. The bitches recall their indoctrinations into nerd culture, and discuss some of their favorite things.

When searching for female-hosted nerdy podcasts, we found the genre was a “sausage fest”, and any podcasts run by chicks were either solely dedicated to one nerd topic, or were the kinds of female-related issues you don’t really want to listen to–A podcast with wings!

We are also taking back the word “Bitch,” so deal with it. We discuss what that means in regards to women who are willing to speak their minds versus terms given to their male counterparts.

This episode introduces the kinds of topics we enjoy, our weekly Bitch of the Week, random internet comments taken out of context, and each bitch’s recommendations.

Our first Bitch of the Week – Fucking Hipsters! (Adjective, not verb – we never condone sleeping with hipsters!) Stupid nerd-posers who wear their geeky glasses (with or without lenses) and beanie hats, and ruin Geekdom for the rest of us.

Recommendations:

  • From Heather: Snowpiercer (movie), available on Netflix
  • From Liz: The IT Crowd (BBC series), available on Netflix

Explicit language is to be expected – but it is all in good fun!
