EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Featuring Katey Rich and Elizabeth Taylor’s Corpse In Space

This week, Joanna Robinson takes the reigns to bring her residency to a climactic happy ending, much like romantic comedies. That’s right, Manhattan Love Story and A to Z failed at bringing serialized rom-com to the TV screen so it’s time to examine this genre: can it be drawn out and still be satisfying? Did the genre grind to a halt after the execution of Love Actually? IMPORTANT THINGS! Also discussed: The theater critic in Birdman has us thinking about professions portrayed on film and John Wick has each host picking a favorite dumbly plotted movie.
