We're fairly deep into our trip down memory lane, but our heroes are no closer to figuring out how to stop the ever-evolving force that's pursuing them. With few other options, they'll have to adopt a new, remarkably costly strategy. Magnus helps out some Losers. Taako eats a fateful meal. Merle makes a powerful new friend.

Watch out noise makers and corn nuts teeth! Bryan and Erin have your number, hussy, and one of them is day drunk! This week hop on the outrage train with a new classic from an ol' fav Susanne Venker and her opus "Most Men Just Want a Woman Who's Nice " and a San Luis Obispo high school special education teacher pens a "gays deserve to die" diatribe to the high school paper and no one is havin' it. Plus, Bryan's BFF from college Stephanie Stenta-James schools you on the Judge Judy fan Facebook page and the time Bryan got his cape stuck. You'll get it when you get it.

This week, Karen takes over as host as the gang discusses summer blockbusters. They are joined by film critic and writer Alonso Duralde to discuss which summer films they're most excited for, which ones they aren't, and which ones just shouldn't have been made. Margaret tells us what she expects from the perfect summer blockbuster. We find out what the logistics are for a hit film's international release, and the gang takes on the DC versus Marvel movie debate. Plus the panel discusses summer releases that don't have explosions and muscles but rather heart and wit.

We are treated to some awesome recommendations from the gang, from season two of Master of None (watch out for a few tiny spoilers!) to a biography of Harvey Kurtzman, the creator of Mad Magazine. And as always, the gang tells us what their jam of the week is.

Don't forget to check out Alonso's writing at The Wrap magazine or his super smart and hilarious movie criticism podcast Linoleum Knife. You can also follow him on Twitter if you want (you definitely want to!).

With Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler, Wynter Mitchell, and Alonso Duralde.

Jams:
Karen: Wave Hello, Say Goodbye - Soft Cell
Margaret: 2 Good 2 Be True - Nite Jewel
Wyter: Believe in It - Michael McDonald
Alonso: Here Is My Butt - Saturday Night Live

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.

The Greatest Generation Ep 137: He’s A Real Evil Boy (S6E12)

| 0 comments

When the Entrepreneur’s holodeck tries going for a deep callback, the crew is once again facing a villain that can defeat Data. Now a man who should be inside the computer is wandering all over the ship and causing all kinds of trouble. Did Q steal that book? Is Picard trying his equivalent of ‘giving the chocolate’ to Moriarty? Who gives Guinan the most hat-envy? Everybody knows that holodeck peril is a snooze-worthy premise. It’s an episode that presupposes, maybe it isn’t?

Let's ride that crimson wave over into grown up town and talk about that dreaded monthly visit from Aunt Flow. Or maybe talk about how much we all hate euphemisms for periods. Join the sisters as they discuss that time of the month and...poop ghosts? Also, one of them achieved James Bond level period story so, enjoy.

We did it. We beat it. We finished watching the final four episodes of Bachelor Pad Season Two in a single week, a feat that we wouldn't recommend trying to recreate at home. See you next week for the Bachelorette premiere!
