UNBREAKABLE, THEY'RE ALIVE - DAMMIT!

Y'all females is strong, and so is the comedy in the hit Netflix Original Series: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The 4th, and final, season of Kimmy Schmidt just wrapped up, and we think they did a stellar job at bowing out at the right time, and hitting a home run with the final season. From the mind of Tina Fey, this is the ridiculous sitcom we were all missing since "30 Rock" and "Parks and Rec" have gone off air. It's full of wit, shade, immense comedy, sing-a-longs and extremely quotable moments. Come relive the journey of why KS is so great, and why it's required watching TV (not-super-spoilery!)

 

We Love you BB's!

BB's: If there is one thing we love here at Beauty and the Bitch it's DRAMA. Fyre Festival is one of the most dramatic, well crafted marketing fails EVER, targeting rich millennials who specialize in Social Media and being disconnected from reality. This shit show has two documentaries out on streaming networks at the moment, so we each watched one and got together to DISH ON THIS!

In addition to Fyre Festival we come together to catch up and look forward, and supply lots of tangential conversations......ENJOY!

We love you BB's!

Nostalgia brings us back to a classic: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lews. Beauty and the Bitch goes over the merits and vices of The Lion, the With, and the Wardrobe, what we like about Lewis, and what we LOVE about James McAvoy as Mr. Tumnus (SPOILERS: he's everything). Do you feel like you've aged out of this story or does it still speak to you? Do you want to hear about J.R.R. Tolkien's view on the series (SPOILER: he's shady)? Do you love to just chat about fantasy??? YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

 

Tune in for this and more BB's!

In 2018, PBS embarked on the difficult task of polling America to identify The Great(est) American Read(s). Over the year, they narrowed down the list of options to a contentious 100, which were then voted on by millions of people.

Did your favorites make the list?!?

Tune in to catch a detailed examination of the TOP 10 MOST BELOVED NOVELS OF ALL TIME as chosen by contemporary Americans (followed by a haughty and despairing perusal of the other 90). 

 

Cheers! We love you BB's!

Today we're counting down our favorite 2018 books, movies, tv shows and more! If you need some recommendations, we've got you covered!

Here's hoping you have a bright and shiny 2019 and that your 2018 is wrapped up with a bang (or with a night spent in, eating snacks... whatever).

HOLD THE PHONE: we are gathered here today at the Beauty and the Bitch Headquarters (aka Mic's bedroom) to discuss MORGAN'S ALL-TIME FAVORITE queen: Mary, Queen of Scots. She has a new film out this year that regales us with the tale of her life and her nasty battle with Queen Lizzy of England.

How real is this movie gonna be? Probably not real-real. How stoked are we anyway? VERY. QUITE!

We love storytelling with a grain of salt and we love gossiping about the lives of the royals...and we love speculation...and starting rumors in general....so this topic is especially DELICIOUS for us.

Cheers - we love you BB's!

Who loves Transformers?! WE DON'T!

Well, the Michael Bay situation anyway....but we're open to this new Bumblebee addition to the fam! Come join us as we discuss the travesty of the Transformers franchise, what we do like about it (we're looking at you BeastWars!), what is absolutely ridiculous (Mark Wahlberg, anyone?), Shia LaBeouf's descent into madnes....AND MORE!

 

We love you BB's!

Whether you care about DC films or not, the GOOD NEWS is that Jason Momoa is the star of this one! Beauty and the Bitch are exploring our very low expectatons for this film, how the character of Aquaman stacks up against other superheroes, questionable casting choices, how this is tied into the Entourage franchise and more.

We haven't loved recent DC adventures (except for you, Wonder Woman! Two for YOU, Wonder Woman!)....but we're willing to give them a few more tries. Like we said, the bar is low, and so is our guard, because we are joined by our favorite guest -WINE!

We love you BB's!

Well, we almost nailed this numbering system....oh well. Beauty and the Bitch dives into the newest iteration of the Fallout franchise!

And y'all.....we got feelings. On a scale from garbage fire to Fallout: New Vegas, this game is...a broken pipe pistol.

Spoilers ahead in this episode!

Morgy saw Fantastic Beasts, Mic is here to listen and help judge....and y'all, we got feelings (as per usual). We discuss the nuances of updated canon information that JK Rowling casually slips in this new installment, how they handle Dumbledore, WEIRD ASS SHIT that doesn't fit the timeline...and also a few things we actually kinda like.

Tune in if you love Harry Potter as much as we do!

K, love you, bye!

Beauty and the Bitch LOVE Harry Potter, but aren't afraid to discuss our qualms....and speaking of those qualms, have y'all seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?!?

The second installment of this film series (The Crimes of Grindlewald) dropped recently, but before we tackle the current housefire, we're taking a step back to examine our feelings on the first film, the franchise as a whole, and, of course, 25 non-sequiters.

K, bye!

Beauty and the Bitch consider themselves queens among men, but we're happy to bow down next to the incomparable talent and fierceness of Freddie Mercury (and Rami Malek!). The new biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" is taking on this MONSTER legend, so it's our duty to wade in and sound off!

We've got lots of jokes about queens, plenty of shade, questions about queer representation and accuracy AND MORE on this week's episode!

Beauty and the Bitch is very on the fence about the upcoming reboot of "Charmed" on the CW. Now, look, it IS true that Morgan was into the original Charmed, But these days she recognizes that it's probably just a pile of 90's garbage.

Mic watched it for the first time recently and can confirm fully that it is indeed a pile of 90's garbage. But it certainly contains drama...and you know we love drama!

Catch all the deets about the original run and the reboot that's out now!

We love you BB's!

This week Beauty and the Bitch are tackling the wildly popular and extremely relevant The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This book and upcoming movie follow Starr Carter as she balances her life in the projects with her responsibilities and friends at an upscale private school.

She is torn between worlds and faces a series of gut-wrenching decisions after she witnesses the the murder of one of her oldest friends by a police officer. This story focuses on the issues at the heart of the Black Lives Matter movement and on the importance of standing up and speaking out. Extremely powerful!

Beauty and the Bitch have a love/hate relationship with AMC's The Walking Dead. We used to love it, and now we hate/love it. Like, is it truly terrible now? Or are we missing something?

Either way, we're back this week to get "hyped" for the a new season of Robert Kirkman's masterpiece with criticism and jokes about death. Your favorite kind!

Beauty and the Bitch is here to bring the nostalgia back with GOOSEBUMPS this week. SPOILER ALERT: the theme song is lit and so are WE. We've got recaps of your childhood scares and unlimited shade about the movie situation(s) that are doing R.L. Stein's legacy no justice.

Beauty and the Bitch is obsessed with Superstore and we think YOU SHOULD BE TOO. If you've never seen this NBC sitcome (also available on HULU) then you need to stop EVERYTHING you are doing right now and go watch all of it!

Today's episode has *some* shade, but we're mostly here to share the love (plus indulge in tangential non-sequitors where we complain and chat as per usual). 

PLUGS:

Mic recommends you check out Go-Go Boy Interrupted featuring Nico Santos (MATEO!).

Morgan actually enjoyed (Cock)Blockers, so check it out for laughs!

Beauty and the Bitch is bringing nostalgia back (YEP) and talking all things The House with a Clock in Its Walls. This 1973 juvenile mystery fiction novel written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey is the first in a series of twelve novels featuring the fictional American boy Lewis Barnavelt.

Mic was a big fan as a young person and there will likely be many more fans of the upcoming movie adaptation that is set to release on September 21st, 2018.

Whether you love YA, mysteries, half-dead sorcerers, awkward children, a little bit of fantasy, rudeness, games OR everything in between: this is an episode for you!

PLUGS:

Mic want's you to check out Dorothy and the Wizard in OZ (different from the first Oz book, but TOTALLY worth a read!).

Morgan assumes you already know, but Netflix's adaptation of "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" is AMAZING! Go watch it.

Sep 11, 2018

Beauty and the Bitch GOES THERE (like Degrassi); this week we are taking on true crime and one CRAZY case in particular.

The Golden State Killer was arrested for his crime spree (circa 70's-80's) just this year, thanks to advanced DNA technology. Michelle McNamara unfortunately didn't live to witness justice. She passed away in 2017, but her book I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer was published posthumously. Her desire to help get this case solved and bring an end to the living terror still felt by the GSK's victims was inspiring. She is a wordsmith like no other, as well as an amazing journalist and investigator.

Naturally we've got (some of) the facts, the jokes (yes, we even joke about this), the recommendations, and everything else ya need!

PLUGS:

Mic want's you to check out Castle Rock (on HULU). He also plugs "his personality, which is effervescent".... OKAY GURL.

Morgan for sure wants you to read "I'll Be Gone in the Dark" (IT'S SO GOOD Y'ALL). ALSO: Check out the Paul Holes episode (#122) of My Favorite Murder. This is a great follow-up after you finish the book!

This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Neil Gaiman's CLASSIC "Neverwhere." Originally adapted as a BBC II Mini-series, Gaiman quickly saw the need to re-write and adapt as a novel alongside the show. (TIPS: The novel is way better).

Mic and Morgan discuss a shared love of Gaiman (and Gay-men), while disecting Neverwhere and who should check it out (EVERYONE REALLY).

PLUGS:

Mic just saw Room (he's late, okay) and thinks EVERYONE SHOULD SEE IT. It's beautiful, sad, inspiring, and makes you value your life and relationships. He gives this his only 10/10 on his summer watch list!

Morgan want's to plug the book she got out of a free-library in Atlanta - "The Friday Night Knitting Club": Sounds......lame? Actually sweet and very good. Family drama, and said to be "Steel Magnolias set in Manhatten".....so. There's that.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are diving into Diana Gabaldon's Outlander! Oooh sexxxy! Starz has popularized this fantasy/romance/period drama and season 4 starts VERY SHORTLY.

Morgan is a big fan and is currently plowing through Book 4 in preparation for Season 4. Mic thinks it all sounds slightly ridiculous, but agrees that Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) is a god among men (SPOILERS: we talk about this fact. A. Lot).

So, if you're into time travelling, fantasy, period pieces, messy families, comedy and romance and more, you should check it out! It's less about romance as time goes on, so if that's holding you back DON'T LET IT.

This week Beauty and the Bitch are actually wrapping up our Harry Potter talks with Part 2 of our Deathly Hallows discussion. It's bittersweet that we made it all this way; a year-and-a-half into our podcast and our beloved Potter-talk is ACTUALLY wrapping up. We've got all the feelings, all the hype, lots of jokes (we coat our sadness with comedy), predictions about futures & musings on the past. Also shade. SO MUCH SHADE.

Hot takes:
Hermione is NOT a virgin, but Harry and Ron for sure are (for sure!).
If you read Harry Potter backwards, the satanic messaging becomes clear. FACT.

OKAY.  We will now commence... 
BURNING THE ENTIRE SERIES IN EFFiGY!!! Praise Be!!! May the Lord Open!!!

GROSS. 
Sorry.
Religious Fit.

Hope you've enjoyed making your way through Harry Potter with us over the last 1.5 years. It's been great on our end. NOW, onward to filler episodes! :) 

PLUGS:

Mic wants to remind you of his strong stance: FUG THE EFFING EPILOGUE.

ALSO: check out our Voldemort Origins of the Heir episode, and also check out the full length movie on YOUTUBE!
