There is no episode more indicative of the quality of this show than this episode right here. There’s bad audio. There’s swearing. Lots of swearing. There’s unexpected spoilers out of nowhere. There’s complaints about how hot it is. There’s an argument. There’s Bernadette telling Andrew he’s a fool. There’s also a double five star rating of a film. And there’s also TISM. (That last one isn’t a regular element of the show.)
So, what’s covered? Well, Damian Chazelle’s La La Land gets discussed with spoilers in the first film of the evening. Heath Davis’ first feature length film Broke gets covered alongside an interesting discussion about gambling addiction. Mira Nair brings us a story about chess in Uganda with Queen of Katwe. Finally, Andrew wasn’t about to let this film be the first film discussed on the episode, so it’s stuck at the end of this episode, and that is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which also includes spoilers. Because of course.
This was recorded on Christmas Day 2016 so there’s drunkenness and discussions about food and then films and arguments. It’s just like talking about things with your family.
