Episode Twenty-Three - Agents of SHIELD 4x19 - Narratives and Infodumps

EDana and Marc discuss Agents of SHIELD's "All the Madame's Men" in a timely manner!

Also unicorn frappuccinos for some reason?

Episode Twenty-Two - French Election 2017

EMarc and Dana welcome special guest Will for a political break from our usual media geekery to discuss the French presidential election, world politics, and parallels and personalities of history. Because when we said we nerd out about everything we love we really meant it.

Episode Twenty-Two - French Election 2017

Episode Twenty-One - Agents of SHIELD 4x15-4x18 - Everything Is Too Good; Help!

EDana and Marc haven't actually spoken for like a month, Agents of SHIELD is unbelievably good, and hence no one can focus on anything. Dana gets so worked up she can't stop swearing (mostly about FitzSimmons and the MCU), while Marc skips from Netflix's terrible new rating system, to DC, and a million things in-between. Idek, guys.

Episode Twenty-One - Agents of SHIELD 4x15-4x18 - Everything Is Too Good; Help!

Episode Twenty - Let's Talk About the Oscars!

EIn this episode, Marc and Dana alternately enjoy and complain about the Academy Awards—because that's temporally topical. They get into Hollywood drama, entertainment industry politics, disenchantment with awards, a little film history, and why Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is infinitely better than La La Land.

Episode Nineteen - Agents of SHIELD 4x15 - Girls Save the World

Episode Eighteen - Agents of SHIELD 4x13 & 4x14 - OMG How Is Everything So Perfect?!?

EMarc and Dana (finally!) catch up on Agents of SHIELD, discussing the way this "BOOM" and "The Man Behind the Shield" deal with terrorism, mad science, robot sentience, weird romances, Cylon & Inception Syndromes, Steve Rogers for some reason???, television deaths (Dana's trying to convince herself of things), and non-powered people in a powered world. There's a lot of excitement.

Episode Seventeen - Agents of SHIELD 4x11 & 4x12 - Like Therapy Through the Television

EMarc and Dana discuss "Wake Up" and "Hot Potato Soup" with a lot of heartfelt earnest adoration and just general geeking over Agents of SHIELD fixing all of its problems. Because now it gives ladies with agency, lets people reject their awful parents, has every character play a role, does fantastic superhero politics etc. Here's hoping it can keep it up.
