Episode #47: Out of Order

FOI 47

-Cynara gives a NEGATIVE review of the new Jason Reitman flick Men, Women and Children. As she is wont to do with movies she hates, she gives spoilers BUT I warn you before it happens (trust me, it’s not really a big deal). Anyway, most of this has to do with people’s misapprehensions of what the internet is really like and how internet friends are REAL, DAMMIT

-With some effort, we redirect the conversation to The Good Wife (a discussion which does contain spoilers up to October 12, as well as a casting spoiler for the future)

-We even touch on How to Get Away with Murder, which Cynara isn’t sold on but wow was that final scene on October 16 a doozy (our discussion of this show is rather spoiler free — we do NOT reveal the “last nine words” that Viola Davis says, which weren’t as good as the 90 wordless seconds that preceded them, anyway

-Would Dollhouse have been a better show if the final episode had been shown first (à la HTGAWM?)

Saturday Night Live is tanking in the ratings! Stefon is crying about this! (Maybe they should ditch the North Korea yellowface sketches and see how that goes?)

End clip: Eliza Dushku singing in the line of duty in the first season of Dollhouse

Cynara gives her take on two flicks, one in theatres and one on Netflix.

Right now on Netflix: The Punk Singer, a biographical documentary about musician and Riot Grrl Kathleen Hanna, including her recent diagnosis with late-stage lyme disease.

Right now in theatres: Gone Girl, based on the best-selling thriller by Gillian Flynn, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Cynara’s review doesn’t spoil the movie but might prepare you for some disappointing aspects of it.

Also:

-Jenny encourages all Winnipeggers to attend a new thing that’s happening called Cootie Club, an initiative to improve the representation and safety of women and feminine spectrum people in the music scene, check out all the details on Facebook

-Some gossiping about Ben Affleck  and Jennifer Garner

-The way men’s behaviour on the internet often resembles that of the animated paperclip that used to pop up and offer to help you with your Microsoft Word document

End song: Bikini Kill, “Bloody Ice Cream.”
