Plus, the reason we're all gathered in this amazing super group: our shocked and  applaudable moments!

    Let's join forces (your ears and our opinions) for something amazing and peculiar! This part is so huge, we won't even discuss the plot for either episode we're reviewing this month.

    Lydia helps bring us into non-theatrical entertainment for the second time -- "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever", also her choice last December, was our very first.  But this month is definitely something new, as we cover two great ep...

    It's time to land this mothership, hyuck yuck! We'll finish the plot with some discussion over the introspective thoughts from the cast while traversing the community theater-like expansive set of the klown's ship. Plus, Naomi lists all of the names she's given to the klowns; we'll tell you who played Klownzilla and reveal who or what a 'grenade' is.

    And, as always, our shocked and applaudable moments!

    We'll start with Sean Facts so shocking to us that it nearly made us do a spit take. Then, as we dive into the plot, be ready for some quaint discussions on the "right" way to sell ice cream to sexed up teenagers, t...

    Let's do the Mario! Take one step and then again, fall not-so-gracefully through a wall of rock. 

    We'll say "girl, get it!" to Big Bertha, introduce you to "The Evolution of Schmucks", pant heavily at the sight of John Leguizamo shirtless, spend some time with the only thing that aged well -- Yoshi -- and discuss the finer points of elevator music.

    Us: Laughs in 8bit! 

    It's a speed run, y'all! Let's see how many times we can say we unironically love this horrible special effects sci-fi film from the early 90s.

    We'll start with how we came to this movie, go through some sad Sean Facts, and begin to somehow make the audio scrubber move from the left of your screen to the right side without us falling to our untimely deaths.

    Let's jump in!

    We go a bit overboard this week, with some deep discussions that will leave you feeling drained. Haha! Water.

    It's time to whet your appetite with a thriller nobody wanted or expected us to review ... 2006's "Lady In The Water"!

    We'll dive in with a quick discussion on how we came to this movie (...we don't really remember), list out the multitudes of sinful awards this fish out of water earned, and discuss the plot, up to the point where we see Bryce Dallas Howard's Nair Hair-removed Narf legs.

    Our first episode of 2022 comes to a flaming end! We'll round up the last of the fourth wall breaks, finish any last Sean facts we can rope together, and herd our shocked and applaudable moments into the barn to finish off January as casually offended as we can be while still remaining American white women who watch movies for the Internet.

    We'll start as we normally do, discussing how we were introduced to the film, wrastle up about two pages of Sean Facts, and dive straight into the plot -- just about to the introduction of Bart to the town of Rock Ridge.

    Sean and Maddie are back! It's been a while, but they've got some fresh takes on our 13th Warrior episode. Like, is this a movie about genocide? What's an appropriate amount of mead for a Muslim to drink? Who the heck directed this movie?

    It's a fast yet epic take on a movie you may not even know we watched this year! Welcome to the after-show party you never knew you never needed.
