Ep 15 – Take 2

8-19-18 (1)

Our first recording of this week’s show was horrible quality and deemed not usable.  So… this is Take 2 on this week’s topics.  It was strange to redo it, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

First, Dhani saw Crazy Rich Asians and loved it so much that she almost has a tough time getting the words out about how wonderful it was!  Next, she tells John about TAG, Adrift, and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

When they get into TV, they first discuss their mutual affection for The Great British Bake Off.  Then Dhani watched Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence on Amazon Prime.  Next, Dhani summarizes the TV shows she is currently watching and enjoying.

And finally, to celebrate Jennifer Lopez receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs on Monday, we discuss our favorite JLo movie.

Ep 14 – Installated isn’t a word!


This week Dhani shows off her language skills and invents a new word!  Maybe this is why she spends most of her time watching TV and movies?!?!

Listen as she explains watching The Meg and not being able to see the end as there was a fire alarm evacuation with 20 minutes left to go in the movie!!!!!  Then John joins in as he finally saw Deadpool 2.  Dhani will explain her disappoint in Book Club and happiness in watching Lily James in The Guernsey Literacy and Potato Pie Peel Society.

Next, John and Dhani have found their new TV show to watch together in Making It!  Something for the kids… Disney has a new remake of Freaky Friday… which Dhani watched because it’s a musical and she simply can’t stop herself.

We dive into the new Oscar category of popular film and found that we might not agree this new addition to the Academy.

Lastly, Dhani gives a fast rundown of the TV shows that she is currently excited about.  (The Sinner, Castle Rock, The Affair, Fear The Walking Dead)

A Special Episode with Mom – Talking Real Housewives!

mom 8-10-18

This is a special off-schedule episode with my Mom, Peggy.  As we all know, John does not like to watch or talk about the Real Housewives, so I enlisted my Mom to discuss the drama!  First we dive into some general questions about our favorite and least favorite housewives are as well as our favorite moments in the past and who we would like to return to the franchise.

Then we discuss the current seasons of The Real Housewives of Potomac, The Real Housewives of Orange County, and then we saved the best for last and talked about The Real Housewives of New York.

My mom and I tend to disagree on most of these women and situations… so what better way to explore shows about arguing women than with listening to two more women debate those arguments???


Ep 12 – You’ve Ruined Movies For Me Forever!


What a week after returning to normal life after vacation.  Dhani still managed to see The Spy Who Dumped Me.  Then she made John watch Avengers: Infinity War.  Listen to him describe his frustration with that ending!  Then Netflix takes over the conversation as Dhani talks about the movie Like Father and series Orange is the New Black.  And finally Dhani recommends The Sinner to everyone while John recommends the trailer for The Nun for some fun scares.

The Spy Who Dumped Me (6:50)  ★★★★ 1/4

Avengers: Infinity War (17:30)  Dhani ★★★★1/2      John ★★★★

Like Father (34:21) ★★★★

Orange Is The New Black (42:30)
