026 – The Fuck Modifier


We’re back with another new episode, this time featuring the wonderful Sara (aka Cheesa Tonkas)! While we do get pretty derailed, we also manage to talk about our episode of the week, which is season 2 episode 14: The Fuck Buddy. We sadly have to deal with Skipper one last time, and it’s possibly his most insufferable appearance yet. Good thing Dennis Duffy is also here to bore us to tears while Miranda’s boyfriend of the week makes us :mood: emoji.

Episode 69: Do You Know Sports?


Good news, sort of! It’s S03E23, “Round II”, and it’s not a merciless onslaught of negativity like the last episode! Are any of these Nice scenes earned? No, not really, but at least this episode doesn’t kill you when you watch it – despite Ashley’s best efforts! This week, the Brenda Hampton Apology Tour is coming to take you away. Thanks, Henry!

Just because someone is absolutely one hundred percent guaranteed by the stars to kill one of your co-hosts is no reason not to stan. It’s a Cassie book, which means a lot of fumbling through trying to process the philosophical core of the Animorphs series. Also, eels! Join three people who have grown so ancient & wizened that they can no longer handle your standard iced tea to discuss this sweet treat of a book, number 29, The Sickness. Ooh ah ah ah.

Derek and Michelle are back in town and ready to send two more movies to the second round.
