Ep 43 – Catching Up

5-4-19We are finally back to our old format… with Dhani talking about all of the things she has watched.  However, this week, she has to make up for the last 4 weeks of not producing a podcast, so she has a lot to cover!

First, she talks about On The Basis of Sex and the pure awesomeness of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Next, Dhani talks about the Netflix movies Someone Great and Unicorn Store.  While they were both about the process of growing up and change, she preferred the story of Someone Great more.  However both are enjoyable.  Moving on to a documentary of YouTubePremium called Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story.  Since Dhani is a superfan of *NSync, she really appreciated the insight gained from this behind the scenes doc.  And finally, both John and Dhani watched the Netflix documentary Knock Down the House.  This focuses on 4 women running for Congress in 2018 and following their grass roots campaigns. 

Moving on to TV, Dhani wanted to visit some shows that have ended that she highly recommends.  These are Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and You’re The Worst.  She was happy with the way both shows ended.  Then Dhani talks about the second season of Cobra Kai on YouTubePremium and how much she truly loves this show!  Being a fan of The Karate Kid, she is truly in heaven watching Johnny and Daniel battle again.  Next Dhani talks about the Hulu show The Act.  This is the story of DeeDee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard.  The show is good, but she recommends the documentary about this story first, called Mommy Dead and Dearest.  We next discuss a new Netflix show called Dead To Me with Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini.  They are so fantastic in this show and while it wasn’t what Dhani thought it was, she loved it and hopes for a second season.  

Finally Dhani felt the need to address the cancellation of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix.  She loved the show so much and just wanted to let people know that it is still worth checking out what’s streaming even though there won’t be anymore. 

In the Actors’ Studio we chose Drew Barrymore this week.  So we list the movies we love, like, hate, secretly love, haven’t seen and want to watch.

endgame

*******************SPOILERS**********************

This week John and Dhani talk about Avengers: Endgame.  They speak about the movie in great details, spoiling the plot and all details of the film.  Only listen to this podcast if you have seen the movie, otherwise, wait until you have seen the movie and come back and listen.  

If you have seen the movie, and want to hear our opinions, please listen.  It is the only thing we discuss this week.  

At the end of the discussion, we break down the MCU and list the movies we love, like, hate, secretly love, and haven’t seen.  

We will be back next week with lots of TV and other movies to discuss.

Ep 41 – That’s Life

3-31-19After an unexpected week off, we have LOTS to cover for these two weeks.  We try not to spend too much time on most of these things, but they still needed to be talked about.  

First off, Dhani saw Us and gives it 5 stars!  She explains as much as she can without spoiling the plot.  

Next, she talks about the Netflix movie The Highwaymen and how surprised she was that she really enjoyed it and was enthralled in the story.  Another Netflix film that both Dhani and John watched is The Dirt.  The movie about Motley Crue.  Neither really enjoyed it and thought there should have been more to the heart and soul of the movie.  

Moving to TV, Dhani talks about the latest episodes released of Arrested Development.  She has always liked the show and suggests people go back and watch from the beginning.  The next series Dhani discusses is Catastrophe and it’s 4th and final season on Amazon Prime.  She has loved every episode of this show and advises that most people will enjoy it if they haven’t watched it already.  

Next, Dhani and John watched the HBO documentary The Inventor: Out for Blood, the story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos.  Dhani liked the details of the podcast on the same topic called The Dropout better than this documentary… but they both agree it was well done and worth watching.  

The next series Dhani watched is The Disappearance of Maddie McCann.  This is a very involved docuseries on Netflix diving very deep into the circumstances of Maddie’s disappearance but also broadly into the child trafficking problems happening globally. 

Another show on Netflix that both Dhani and John watched was Amy Schumer’s standup special called Growing.  This is a new chapter in Amy’s life and she has handled the transition in a way which she is still hysterical and relatable.  

The newest show Dhani has watched is the 3rd season of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix.  This is one of her favorite shows in recent history.  The cast is wonderful, but the situation and writing is so funny that she gets joy from watching this show.  Highly recommended that everyone watch and enjoy!

Next, Dhani wanted to touch on some shows that are just starting.  The first being The Act on Hulu.  This is based on the Gypsy Rose Blanchard story and has been really good in the first 3 episodes.  Moving on to Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.  Dhani was a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars and so far this show isn’t as good… but she’s sticking with it for the time being.  

Another show that Dhani really wants to like is Whiskey Cavalier.  She loves the cast and all of Bill Lawrence’s previous shows…. but the dynamic of the hard female with the charming male is tired to her and she’s not sure she can keep watching.  🙁

Finally, Dhani just wanted to make a public announcement that everyone needs to watch Season 15, episode 19 of Grey’s Anatomy.  This episode was important and something everyone needs to see, even if you have never watched any other episodes of this show. 

And in our Actors’ Corner this week, we chose Richard Dreyfuss.  Listen as we choose his films that we love, like, hate, secretly love, haven’t seen, and want to see.

Ep 40 – Next

3-17-19We first find Dhani and John admitting they are very tired as they record this week’s episode… but we march on as there is a lot to talk about this week.  

First, Dhani talks about Captain Marvel.  She tries not to give anything away but does discuss some themes that she enjoyed in the film.  

The next movie Dhani saw is The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.  She was very pleasantly surprised that this sequel was as clever and interesting as the first movie.  

The next movie Dhani saw was Holmes & Watson.  Even though this was so openly panned, she still wanted to give it a try… and while it was fun to watch the two stars, the overall story wasn’t good.  

And the last movie discussed is Mary Poppins Returns.  Just a reminder to everyone that it is out on Digital now and what a wonderful movie it is.  

Moving on to TV, Dhani talks about the Hulu show Shrill.  She really feel in love with the main character and advises people to watch the show without really being able to describe it.  

Next, both Dhani and John talk about the Netflix show After Life by Ricky Gervais.  They both loved this show so much that they use the word perfect to describe it.  

Next they revisit their love of the show I’m Sorry and beg TruTV to give it a 3rd season.  

Now Dhani talks about the shows and movies coming out in the next week that she hopes to watch before the next podcast.  

Finally, we move on to the Actors’ Corner and they chose Will Smith’s movies to cover.  They list his movies that they love, like, hate, secretly love, haven’t seen, and want to see.
