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)

No clever caption, this pic is just here because C. Hendricks is gorge.

*It’s a Krishna Christmas! And it’s 1966, so that means that STAR TREK now exists!
*Lane’s having money problems, I don’t understand what they are and I don’t care to
*”The twist is that the Negron are white”
*Pete can’t drive stick (and yet he wishes Don would kiss him on the mouth)
*Uncle Roger wants to provide baby Kevin with more than just bicycles
*Epic fraternal goodness between Don and Joan (I actually typed “Doan” at first, sue me — or don’t, at least not with any model airplanes around)
*”Lakshmi” (or, as I like to think of her, “The Lovechild of Juliette Lewis and Cobie Smulders”) screws Harry, and then he returns the favour. But the question is, will Paul actually go west?

TUNE IN next week for the return of Trudy!
