Megan gives her Our Favorite Movies Volume 4 pick, There’s Something About Mary. We talk about the greatest moments of this comedy classic and discuss if this would fly today.
This week, we’re wrapping up Volume 4 of the Our Favorite Movies series with Megan’s pick, the 1998 comedy There’s Something About Mary. We dive into this modern Farrelly Brothers classic and see how it has aged. Plus, much of the humor is incredibly un-PC, so we discuss whether or not this film could be made today. More specifically, we talk a lot about the Warren character, played by W. Earl Brown.
In the return of TV Tidbits, we talk about the recent controversial episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. We dig into spoilers, so watch for this section if you haven’t seen episode 10. Plus, we’ve seen GLOWSeason 2. Does it avoid the sophomore slump (spoiler free)? Finally, the Television Critics Association unveiled their nominations in the middle of the Television Academy’s nominations voting window. We talk about the history of the TCA Awards, whether or not they have any correlation to the Emmys, and what, if anything, they could influence in the 2018 voting cycle.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
Don’t forget that next week’s podcast, dropping Tuesday, July 3, marks the return of the Water Cooler Podcast Book Club. We’re reading Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects, and we hope you are too.
