(NB: This episode was recorded earlier in July but was delayed in posting due to a death in Jenny’s family.)
-Cynara reviews Seth Rogen’s apocalypse comedepic (to coin a phrase), This Is the End and Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring.
-Jenny returns to the ranks of Patton Oswalt fans when he apologizes for being a dick.
-Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy unite under the directorship of Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) for the buddy cop extravaganza The Heat.
-Cynara gives an update of racist shenanigans and real world consequences (!) on the current US season of Big Brother. (This leads into a little bit of Paula Deen talk.) (Also a bit about Amazing Race Canada and Survivor season 1 (!) nostalgia.)
Big Brother 14 cast members compete in a veto challenge where they are dressed as nacho chips and have to dig in pools of “dip” for clues.
This episode would’ve been way more topical if Jenny had been more timely in posting it. OH WELL. What you get in this episode is some now outdated mid-Olympics talk, as well as our predictions on how Canadians will behave a weird competition reality show when Big Brother comes to Soviet Canuckistan.
Also: the TV ads that have been annoying us most lately.
In our first recorded-ahead-of-time ‘cast, we have two main topics of discussion: the new Bravo reality competition series Work of Art: The Next Great Artist and bratwurst.
***JENNY’S DISCLAIMER***: let me just say that our discussion of Work of Art is based SOLELY on the first two episodes and not any of the ridiculous crap that goes on in episodes three and four. Expect a follow-up on those goings-on in an upcoming episode, possibly with commentary from our friend Cam, whom we mention in this podcast.

End clip explained:
Canadians will need absolutely no explanation of this, but for the rest of you: “Don’t You Put It In Your Mouth” is a classic PSA that aired on Canadian TV (produced by the Concerned Childrens’ Advertisers). You can watch the entire video here. Yes, it’s real.
