What a Creep: Vince McMahon “WWE” (Season 4, Episode 6)

What a Creep

Season 4, Episode 6

Vince McMahon

Our Creep this week is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of sports.  Vince McMahon is the Chairman and CEO of the WWE as well as the founder of the soon-to-be relaunched XFL. Vince is unique and one of the most recognizable CEOs in the media. He is also a total creep, asshole, and weirdo–one of the most despised people in the history of wrestling—which is saying something!

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”

The 2001 YA Classic Novel Vs. the Beloved 2005 Movie

We needed a break here from the intense and decided to dip back into the YA novel waters with the lovely first installment (of five!) of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants from author Ann Brashares and what a delight it is!

In this episode, the Margos talk about the main plot points in the book with the characters of Lena Kaligaris, Tibby Rollins, Bridget Creeland and Carmen Lowell and their unique friendship. It’s such a sweet, loving tale–we can’t stop gushing about it!

What’s not to love about this story, really? It has strong female characters, an interesting premise, summer vacation locales, real family issues and a great message about keeping your friends close and embracing every wonderful opportunity that comes your way.

We compare all of this with the 2005 film directed by Ken Kwapis and stars Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, and Blake Lively.

So between the novel and the movie–which did we like better? Click the link at the bottom to find out.

In this ep the Margos discuss:

  • The backstory of author Ann Brashares
  • The way sadness, family, and sexuality are discussed in both the book and movie
  • The major differences between the book and the film
  • The amazing chemistry between the leads in the movie
  • How much we now want to travel to Greece!

Clips Featured:

  • The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (original trailer)
  • Tibby (Lively) flirting with Eric (Mike Vogel)
  • Carmen ( Ferrera) confronts her father (played by Bradley Whitford) about abandoning her
  • Lena ( Bledel) & Papou (George Touliatos)
  • Outro music Closer to You  by Brandi Carlile

Book Vs Movie “The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society” (Replay)

Book Vs Movie

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Replay)

The Story Behind the 2008 Novel & the 2018 Movie

Are you ready for a little 1940s weepy? The Margos sure are as they talk about the novel The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society that was started by Mary Ann Shaffer who brought on her niece Annie Barrows to help her finish when she became ill. Shaffer spent some time fogged in at the airport on the island of Guernsey which is located by the English Channel.

After checking their local bookstore she found out the island was occupied by the Germans in World War 2 and she became obsessed with the idea of placing a historical fiction story based there.  The novel is told in an epistolary format and features an array of intriguing characters who come together under terrible circumstances and create their own magical world.

Taking place in 1946, London-based writer Juliet Ashton is stymied on what to write after her last book was a disappointment in sales. After starting a correspondence with a group of book club members based in Guernsey she impulsively decides to visit the island and her life is upended by the power of love.

The film is from director Mike Newell and at the time of this recording, is streaming on Netflix.
