SNL Stole our Joke, which we Repurposed from Amy! Episode #60

Did you think the list of creepy pervs was done? Ah, neighbors, if only! This week, we jump right in with talk of Al Franken’s resignation, John Hockenberry, Leonard Lopate, Bryan Singer, Lorin Stein, and sadly, a few others. But it’s the holidays, so the neighbors try to brighten the mood with recent movie reviews–THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI and LADYBIRD. One neighbors liked her movie; the other didn’t. Guess which is which! We have shout-outs to listeners and a friend of the pod recommendation (Thanks, Josie!). But on an up note, Ally Walker responds to Margo’s tweet and Erin’s enjoying Judd Apatow’s book, SICK IN THE HEAD. Jingle all the way, everyone!

Check out this episode!

    Just discovered your podcast(s) via the Dorking Out Show and F This Movie. Really enjoying your work thus far. I don’t disagree with any of your complaints about Three Billboards, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. Like you I’m a sucker for the Hallmark-style Christmas movies, with 12 Dates of Christmas topping the list. Maybe at some point on your show you can discuss a theme I see in so many of these movies (though not so much in 12 Dates): so many plots feature a successful career woman giving up her life in the city to settle down in some small town with the humble man-next-door. Maybe it’s just a trope of Christmas movies to be anti-urban, anti-corporate employment, but I find it troubling that it’s usually a woman depicted as unhappy in the big city.

      It’s a very old, tired trope. Woman graduates from college, moves to the city, finds a man and moves to the suburbs. Which happens for sure but city living is so much better than it used to be and I wish the old storyline would go but I still enjoy them. Thanks for reaching out! Be sure to leave a review in iTunes if you like the shows! 🙂
