This week starts off with allergies and strange words… but I think we get it together long enough to discuss a few things that were watched this week.
First, Dhani talks about watching the movie The Darkest Minds. She liked the performances, but the story still lacked a bit of explanation. Next, Dhani talks about the documentary Three Identical Strangers and the horrific twist that these siblings discover about their lives and adoption story. It’s quite fascinating and everyone should check out this movie.
Next, before moving on to TV, we talk about an exciting cross-promotion we are doing with another podcast called Pop Culture Nickel. Dhani gave them 5 thanksgiving epsiodes of Friends for them to rank on their podcast before Thanksgiving and then we will compare their rankings to our own. Listen to their promo and check them out!
Moving on to TV, Dhani first discusses binging the new series Homecoming on Amazon Prime with Julia Roberts. She loved the direction by Sam Esmail more than the story… but it all truly worked well together and she was intrigued by the series as a whole.
Then we talk about the new late night show called Busy Tonight hosted by Busy Philipps. Both John and Dhani have really enjoyed the first week’s episodes and find it to be very fresh and new.
Finally, Dhani surmises about the depressing show A Million Little Things. She doesn’t think she can take one more sad thing happening on this show. They are trying too hard and she can’t even find the sympathy for the characters anymore!
And then we get into the Actor’s Corner and this week we chose Julia Roberts. We share the projects of hers that we love, like, hate, haven’t seen and want to see.
