The content of this week’s episode is somewhat fluffier than what’s gone before, and we are more than OK with that.
-Cynara just saw the new Apatow-produced movie Get Him to the Greek, starring fave fatty Jonah Hill, and she has her review. Plus: a little bit of love for the (in our opinion, unfairly) backlashed Diablo Cody.
–Kate (minus Jon) + 8 is back on the air, and we talk a bit about the trials and tribulations of la famille Gosselin, up to and including reminiscences about the hairstyle that captured an international imagination.
-Coming soon to your television: Winnipeg-reared WWE wrestler Chris Jericho hosts Downfall. It’s probably a sign of our society’s coming demise. Also: Jimmy Fallon’s ratings have dropped since last year; lamenting the networks who quickly axe underperforming but quality programs; our speculation on the eventual evolution of Joss Whedon (he will leave the physical plane); Cynara has a few props for The Good Wife, which Jenny pledges to watch on DVD over the summer.
-Milla Jovovich is in Winnipeg! Shooting a movie! Famous person in a small city! We get excited about this stuff! Also, the movie she’s shooting sounds (quite strangely for a Milla Jovovich movie) interesting.
-Cynara talks about the Fiske Matters 2010 conference, and how John Fiske’s mid-century pop culture theory is still relevant.
