Episode #40: Orange You Glad?

Samira & Lea

OINTB cast members Samira Wiley and Lea DeLaria

This episode was SUPER TIMELY when we recorded it in August, around the time that everyone was wound up over Orange Is the New Black. Now, at the start of November, it’s less timely, but we hope you’ll prefer late over never.

Some of the points covered in this monotopical episode:

-How much we love Laverne Cox

-Laura Prepon’s unfortunate past foray into Canadian true crime TV movies

-How great it is that Netflix has finally delivered an original show that Jenny actually wants to watch

-Our differing perceptions/tolerances for “camp.”

Episode #38: It Ruins Lives

Supermarket SweepWe spend 20 minutes not talking about Star Trek: Into Darkness. Jenny tries to convince everyone to watch Canadian-made sci fi series Orphan Black. Cynara reviews Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.

PLUS: Game show nostalgia. We put out a call for submissions to a list of Feminist Horror flicks. And we close out with some weird My Little Pony stuff.

Episode #37: Honourable Menschen

ebert

  • Cynara recently finished the first season of Game of Thrones, so we do a spoiler-lite roundup of the good, the bad and the nonugly of that series.
  • Big Brother has come to Canada, and I’m sure you’ll all be surprised to learn that the Canadian contestants are less vicious and violent than their American counterparts. Cynara covers the highlights of the series so far.
  • We are deeply saddened by the death of Roger Ebert, so we talk through our feelings.

Episode #23: Boobs Out

Little Bayar takes a stand on the Mongolian steppe in Babies

In this epsiode:

  • That adorable Babies documentary (see photo)
  • That (according to Cynara) objectionable sci-fi Timberlake vehicle In Time
  • That unforgivable thing Seth Meyers did on Saturday Night Live wherein he dragged the blameless and pure Kermit the Frog into his mire of fatphobia
  • Childhood anecdote about cows
  • Metaphors involving breasts
