Episode #49: She’s All Fat

  • Jenny has been rewatching Full House on Netflix and the nostalgia for white girlhood in the ’80s has overtaken her
  • Cynara was inadvertently exposed to the trailer for the upcoming “Designated Ugly Fat Friend” makeover movie The DUFF and rage has overtaken her
  • The new Keira Knightley/Chloë Grace Moretz flick, Laggies, is really great and also we are firmly pro-Keira at this point
  • We recommend some German Christmas traditions

End clip: Full House theme song as it was played during the credits for season 3 (1989-90)
