MBMBaM 285: Home Alone 0: Blood in the Snow


There's a lot more to the Home Alone series than slapstick home defense and Tim Curry's pronunciation of the word "pizza." Like, a lot more. Some dark stuff, too -- and it all exists within the confines of Justin's pseudo-canonical thriller fiction.

Suggested talking points: Great British Fancast, Detergent Cop, Hugs for Drugs, Bye Bye Potter, Mrs. Bakula, Utility Ghost, Prequels

One Bad Mother
Kristin Quinn

Biz and Theresa return from the holidays to reflect on toys that suck and wonder: is this a good way to teach kids that life will never be what you expect and nothing's actually as cool as the advertisement suggests? Sure! Plus, Biz finds herself in a "Noon Year’s Eve" hell, Theresa is just glad it's all over, and we talk to blogger and author Kristin Quinn about Misadventures In Mommyhood.

TS216: 2016, Making a Murderer, Ted Cruz, US Women Fail

Throwing Shade

Happy New Year! Here's to a new year full of true crime, false allegations and documentaries about amputated legs. Bryan is kicking it off right with new claims that Ted Cruz is the most gay-friendly Republican candidate (he's not). And Erin discusses a new United Nations finding that says America is really nailing it when it comes to women (it's not). Oh well. At least we'll always have Gloria Swanson jeans.
