We’re taking a trip back to Forks to discuss New Moon, the second book in the Twilight saga. Let’s talk about death, youth, religion, and racism—and why Edward being a creep is less troubling than Bella wanting to be young forever.
Back when we recorded this, it was peak spooky season, so enjoy some Halloween recommendations in, uh, mid-November. Also, Dune.
We bring our James Bond series to a close with Daniel Craig’s take on the iconic character. What does it mean to bring this character into the 21st century? Is this take better than what came before? Where can the series go from here?
It’s been a busy time for us, so this week’s WWBUT is a bit shorter than usual! We hope you enjoy it anyway.
We hope you like Norse myth and penis jokes, because it’s time to discuss The Almighty Johnsons, a New Zealand comedy show following the misadventures of gods reincarnated into mortal bodies.
This is a what we’ve been up to episode, but it’s also an impromptu analysis of Promising Young Woman, complete with some minor spoilers. Consider yourselves warned!
It’s officially the 90s, and it’s time to talk about metrosexuality, Michelle Yeoh, and torture scenes as we dive into Pierce Brosnan’s take on James Bond.
Some weeks there’s a surprisingly unified theme to what we’ve been up to, and then there’s this week. We’ve got horror movies, mushrooms, and, uh, spicy book content once again.
James Bond is a seriously weird franchise. In this episode, we’re tackling the short-lived, non-canon Bond stories: Casino Royale (1967), On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Never Say Never Again, and both Timothy Dalton films.
Taking a week off sure left us with a lot to talk about, and we even cut a few things out! (We’ll miss you, Goethe’s Faust.) Join us as we catch you up on what’s been going on in our spare time.
