We saved the best and the worst for last this year! Mrs. Davis is a little zeitgeisty and a little head-fake-y and a lot of fun, while Citadel kind of wants to be all of those things and isn't any of them? Also if three or four dozen of you tweet at or email us I guess we'll fuck around and watch the entire first season of Citadel, don't disappoint us!
In this week's (comically belated) episode, we're tackling Kathryn's Spring 2023 GOBO picks, the shoulder devil and should angel of the Mom TV genre: The Diplomat (good, currently streaming on Netflix) and The Last Thing He Told Me (preposterous, not in a fun way, currently streaming on Apple TV+). In addition, we take some time off from discussing wood turning, houseboats, and even-weirder-than-Sweeney-Todd Stephen Sondheim musicals to discuss the current writer's strike in Hollywood and what's driving writers' discontent. Listen and enjoy and pretend this came out on Thursday like it was supposed to!
Daisy May Cooper's Am I Being Unreasonable is fascinating and strange and maybe (probably) doesn't work? Particularly because we all get into an argument about who we're supposed to be sympathizing with and why! But one thing's for DANG sure, and it's that Am I Being Unreasonable is a more interesting and successful show than Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies!
