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

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.

 

Nerdy Bitches on the Town!

We have both been crazy busy preparing for some AWESOME conventions! Heather and Producer Craig just made it back from Salt Lake Fan X where Craig served as panelist and moderator for some great events and Heather had an awesome time covering the con!

This weekend, Liz will be hitting Houston’s first Fandemic Tour with Miss Jenny Kelley and Geeks of the Galaxy! There will be celebrities, artists, and a lot of our podcasting friends to play with!

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Episode 105 – Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In this episode, Liz and Heather take a crack at listing the top ten best parody movies ever! This, of course, leads us to define what a parody movie is. We also give a little history on why we each think the movies on our respective lists deserve to be there. Enjoy!

par·o·dy (noun): an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.

Top Ten Best Parody Movies Ever

Top Ten Best Parody Movies EVER

In deciding on our top ten list, Liz and Heather each created their Top 5 lists, which were kept secret, only running them through Producer Craig to make sure we did not have duplicates on the list. Here is a rundown of each list.

Heather                                                 Liz

#5:   Wayne’s World                                      Robin Hood: Men in Tights

#4:   Austin Powers: Goldmember                UHF

#3:   21 Jump Street                                     Spaceballs

#2:   Anchorman                                           Galaxy Quest

#1: Tropic Thunder                                       The Pirate Movie

Honorable Mention: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Go check out our Twitter draft to weigh in on who had the better list!

Gilmore Girls

Episode 96 – Gilmore Girls

On this episode, Liz and Heather finally tackle all seven original seasons of Gilmore Girls! During another one of our infamous fan-trades, Heather agreed to watch all seven seasons plus the revival. In return, Liz will be watching Game of Thrones, which will be discussed sometime during the summer. Probably. We are only tackling the original series in this episode, as also covering the revival would have put the show around 10 hours. The revival and our final-final thoughts will be released this summer. Stay tuned!!

Gilmore Girls

Tropes and Cliches

Episode 94 – Tropes and Cliches

In this episode, Heather and Liz explore popular Tropes and Cliches used in movies, tv, and literature. Seen it over and over? So have we.

Tropes and Cliches

Tropes and Cliches

We wanted to talk about the difference between a trope and a cliche, because we see the same things over and over in TV and movies, especially with the advent of binge watching due to streaming services, DVRs, and on-demand options.

Examples:

  • Boy meets girl/loses girl/gets girl back
  • Will they/won’t they/ of course they will

Some of our discussion:

  • Action stars will fight their way through 2,000 henchmen to get to the big bad, but won’t kill him because he doesn’t want to be “just as bad as him.’
  • To change your life and everything about you, all you need is a makeover!
  • Scientists have to say things deliberately complicated so that someone else can make the statement, “In English, please!”
  • Every ensemble needs an idiot. [See potential scavenger hunt for Comicpalooza]
  • “We need to talk.”
  • It always rains at funerals.
  • Underdog will always win.
  • Badass female character must be perfect AND a physical badass.

Star Wars: Thrawn

Episode 90 – BOOK CLUB – Star Wars: Thrawn

In this Book Club episode, Liz and Heather dive into Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn! This beloved extended universe character has been brought back into the Star Wars canon in this book and in the animated series, Rebels.

Star Wars: Thrawn

Star Wars: Thrawn

Welcome to our first book club episode of 2018! We are actually on time (for once), so listen in as we start the new year off right! In this first book, we get the origin story on one of the greatest “villans” of all time (in Star Wars), Grand Admiral Thrawn. This book, unlike others we have read, comes from his perspective, rather than those of our regular Rebellion heroes.

Obviously, the whole book club will be full of spoilers. Duh!!

This story follows Thrawn, Eli Vanto, and (B-story) Ahrinda Pryce and how they have come to be in their positions within the Empire.

Episode 88 – The Last Jedi (Spoilers!!!)

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss The Last Jedi and their 3 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe that we have been “on the air” for three years already, but here we are! We are also welcoming another new year.

The Last Jedi

Happy New Year and Happy 3 Year Anniversary to Us!

We have had so much fun over the past three years and cannot wait to see what 2018 holds! We talk a little about our troll who came back out of the woodwork over Christmas. If you want to troll the troll, be our guest.

We also devote a lot of time talking about winter in Houston, because it has been crazy cold here for no good reason. We even had snow this year.

Recommendation: WTForecast app – This is for iPhone users and it is a weather app that gives you snarky commentary to go with your forecast.

Warning: This is a SPOILER-filled episode. Spoilers start around the 13:00 mark. You have been warned. Proceed at your own risk.

The Last Jedi

Liz and Operaman watched the movie the first time on opening night with Mandy from Casterquest, while Heather and Producer Craig missed their original screening due to shitty plumbing and had to hit it on Saturday morning.

Listen in for all of our opinions, fan theories, and where we think the franchise can go from here.

Also, for those who hated the movie, try watching it again.

#metoo

Episode 87 – #METOO

#METOO: In this episode, we are taking our the trash #METOO style. Listen in as Liz and Heather talk about the current movement in Hollywood, but also what happens to us (and others) all the time as women in this world. We also answer a couple of listener questions on the subject.

#metoo

#MeToo

This movement, if you aren’t familiar with it, is bringing awareness to the prevalence of sexual harassment or sexual assault. It started with the Harvey Weinstein accusations, but has become so much more. We wanted to talk about this because we are women, we host a podcast, and it is important for us to engage in the discussion.

Heather tells her story of pornography being e-mailed to her by an upper manager in a previous job, where that manager was related to the big boss.

Liz talks a lot about Human Resources and hopefully doesn’t put you to sleep.

Liz goes WAY back to the second grade for her first #metoo incident. We really don’t think about those little things which can have so much impact as we move forward in life.

We answer a couple of awesome listener questions from Bry-Fy Podcast and Home Video Hustle Podcast.

Fair Warning: We definitely get a little passionate on this subject. It’s a conversation that needs to be had.

**We had some technical difficulties with this episode, so we do apologize for that. We didn’t get to talk as much about recycling as we planned.
