Austin, Texas' very own Ernest Cline has given us a sweeping sci-fi/fantasy epic made for every kid from the 80's who LOVES nostalgia (and video games, and movies, and books, and style AND DRAMA). "Ready Player One" was one of Morgan's favorite reads of last year (though it came out several years ago), and is definitely for most any Sci-Fi/Fantasy Lover!

It hits all of *our* buttons, so we're a little biased here, but WE LOVE IT. And, to commemorate our love for the book, we have brought another superfan onboard (Allison Jackson!) to talk about all the great things and speculate about how horrible we think the movie will be (spoiler: we're not too sure about it). 

Dive into our shade (THROWN AT STEVEN SPIELBERG?!), our predictions, our desires anddddddd so much more! Come share in the love BB's, it's good for the soul <3

PLUGS:

 

The Good Place (You should watch it you Messy Bench!)

Black Mirror (on Netflix! Mic thought it might be boring, turns out he was hella wrong)

The Wise Man's Fear (OMG SO GOOD. But, Patrick Rothfuss, don't make me an enemy. YOU. WILL. REGRET. IT.)

Beauty and the Bitch are taking on part three of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" series. Will they be more bitchy than before? Will "The Hobbit" movies continue to be unneccarily long? What happened to Smaug? Can we hold our own attention? If anyone can do it, Beauty and the Bitch can!

We continue on our path of jokes at the expense of Benedict Cumberswizzle, we mourn Smaug, we salute  Martin Freeman (and his Bilbo), and we complain about everything. We also continue to confront the controversial love story of Tauriel and Fili: where do you stand on this invented melodrama?

Not to be missed is (OF COURSE) the shade we are serving on a silver platter....and now I'm hungry. What's for second breakfast???

I DIGRESS.

Thanks for tuning in to our three-part Hobbit podcastathon! We hope you love Tolkien...and tearing down great things as much as we do!

PLUGS:

Marvel's "Legion" (on FX!, and available on HULU)

Diana Gabaldon's Voyager (specifically the last 200 pages, where shit gets LIT) & Season 3 of Outlander on Starz!

Beauty and the Bitch has taken a step into the wild, deep darkness of Jeff van der Meer's Southern Reach Trilogy. This interesting, and twisted trilogy has received the Hollywood treatment with *amazing* director Alex Garland (Ex Machina), who co-wrote and directed Annihilation.

 

Naturally, we have feelings about how the adaptation has shaped up (and changed in a number of drastic ways) and what we think that might mean. Revel in our feelings, effortlessly thrown shade and shared love for Alex Garland, sci-fi (in general) and drama. PLUS: miscellaneous ramblings (obviously our forte).

 

Be sure to catch Annihilation while it's still in U.S. theaters and watch it on Netflix soon if you are international!

 

PLUGS:

Morgan (& Mic) think you should check out Grace & Frankie (in case you've been living under a rock and have *seriously* missed out.

 

Mic also wants to plug robots. Just generally (He is REALLY sucking up to them, so *when they take over they remember he is an ally and a loyalist).

 

***Note: they will be taking over.***

Mic also wants you to check out The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells, an extremely readable (and extremely short) science fiction trilogy. The second and third books are coming out this summer!

Listen,

what follows is the truth. MADELINE L'ENGLE IS A MAGICAL UNICORN GENIUS AHEAD OF HER TIME, INSPIRING YOUNG PEOPLE TO DREAM BIG, AND OH YEAH REMEMBER WE ARE INFINITESIMAL IN THE UNIVERSE SO EMBRACE BIG IDEAS.

Glad we got that out of the way. So. On today's episode we are covering "A Wrinkle in Time," which is getting the Reese Witherspoon treatment on the forthcoming adaptation. Witherspoon has made strides in Hollywood to became the go-to gal for book to screen adaptations. She has a new production company (Hello Sunshine) & a mission to empower women by telling stories for, by & about them. #Feminism. So, needless to say, we're here for it.

A Wrinkle in Time is one of her many accomplishments where she is helping break down barriers for women & people of color. One of our favorite aspects of the AWM movie adaptation is the inclusion of POC and the normalizing of interracial relationships. I mean, IT'S 2018 Y'ALL.  This shit is F.I.N.E. So, thanks for relaying that message to kiddos.

We're also talking all things book- of course! We were big fans as kids, and Morgan can't wait to share it with her future children! A delightful tale guiding kids towards the light, in a world that can often be dark and damp.

In addition to our book & movie talks, we've got some mad shade to throw at the Youtubers & crazy's that have some hate to give in regards to this story. (We're coming for you).

So, be sure to check out the movie (coming to theaters on March 9th) & be sure to read " The Time Quintet" by Madeline L'Engle, starting with book 1: A Wrinkle in Time. <3

PLUGS:

 Mic wants you to check out his favorite brand of delightful trash this week: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which you can catchup on, on Hulu!)

Morgan wants you to join the nerdy side, and catch up on The Kingkiller Chronicles (which she just read- starting with The Name of the Wind), and help her be angry while we anticipate book #3 coming soon (or never. we'll see.)
