Are you gonna see Avengers: Endgame? Have you seen it 20 times already? Either way, come revel in our thoughts and feelings (recorded a few weeks back). We are still relevant and still dumb and sometimes hilarious and always rude (duh).

WE HERE AT BEAUTY AND THE BITCH ARE HYPED AS HELL FOR THE FINAL SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES! 

We recorded this episode before the final season began to air, and we know these discussions have been beat to death, but there is so much to guess about, think through, predict, process, and mock...even before the season begins!

Come on this Game of Thrones journey with us - we have none of the answers and all of the opinions!

Thanks for listening, BBs!

Beauty and the Bitch feel (and they are so, so often correct) that The Silver Chair is one of the best Narnian books. It's also the first book that doesn't include the spoiled Pevensie siblings - whoo hoo! Check out our recap, feelings and tangents.

Thanks BBs - we love you!

Today we're diving into our thoughts and feelings about Disney's upcoming reboot: DUMBO. It's looking like a possible Tim Burton classic, but we've got mixed feelings...mostly because the original is problematic, dark and scary. 

Thanks BBs - we love you!

Beauty and the Bitch are back with a cheap-ass bottle of wine and too many opinions about children's literature. We're discussing the dreary second child in the Chronicles of Narnia series: Prince Caspian. You know we love some C.S. Lewis, but this is not our favorite book ever. And don't even get us started on the movie, okay?

Thanks for listening BBs - we love you!

Beauty and the Bitch have (mostly noncommittal) feelings about Captain Marvel - tune in to hear our highs and lows (and 4,000 non sequitors). We don't mind Brie Larson (duh) and we hope the movie does well...but who gives an eff about Captain Effing Marvel?!?

Thanks BBs - we love you!

Netflix original content continues to step up the game with shows like Russian Doll (starring the irrepressible Natasha Lyonne). We follow Nadia as she dies and re-lives the night of her 36th birthday....BUT IT'S SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. Time Loops, comedy, drama and self-actualization accompany us on this ride, and WE LOVED IT.

Lyonne is a fucking star as Nadia and the accompanying cast is the perfect accent to this dark and gritty version of New York. We've got thoughts, feelings, tangents and all the jokes. So tune in to us, and to Russian Doll!

Thanks BBs - we love you!

Where our emo kids at? And which of us have thought that Gerard Way, musical and angst icon of the early 2000s, would create an incredible graphic novel series? And which My Chemical Romance nerd guessed that his prize-winning graphic novel would be adapted into one of the first Netflix hits of 2019? 

The Umbrella Academy is a dark, sexy and engaging story about a gaggle of superhero orphans - all grown up and thoroughly broken. While catching up with estranged siblings and trying to overcome their personal demons, they're also attempting to prevent the end of the world.....YA KNOW - LIKE YA DO. This one definitely gets our seal of approval. Check out this spoiler-free and EXTREMELY DARK AND EDGY episode! Does it smell like Hot Topic in this recording studio? Ugh.

Thanks BBs - we love you!

Beauty and the Bitch loves to make predictions based on very little  (or absolutely zero) knowledge...so here we are! We LOVE the Oscars and the 2019 trash heap is rolling in to the station this weekend. Join us for gabbing, predictions, shade, tangents and so much more. Did we watch very many Oscar nominated films? NO. Do we still have strong opinions? ALWAYS.

UNBREAKABLE! THEY'RE ALIVE, DAMNIT!

Y'all, those females are strong and so is the comedy in the hit Netflix original 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 just the right time. From the mind of Tina Fey, this is the ridiculous sitcom we've all been missing since 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation finished their runs. It's full of wit, shade, immense comedy, sing-a-longs and extremely quotable moments.

We Love you BB's!

BB's: If there is one thing we love here at Beauty and the Bitch, it's DRAMA! And Fyre Festival is one of the most dramatic and well-crafted marketing fails EVER. Targeting rich millennials who specialize in social media and being disconnected from reality, this shit show is the subject of two documentaries currently available on streaming networks, so we each watched one and got together to DISH ON THIS!

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

We love you BB's!

m. night shyamalan is a really fucking hard name to spell, AND DON'T ASK BEAUTY AND THE BITCH TO DO IT AGAIN.

 

What we can do is go over the Sham-ba-lam oevure and tell you what's good and what's shit (spoilers: the last decade has not been kind!). Come listen along, hear our predictions, and see which ones are worth catching up on!

 

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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR BB'S! We are so thrilled to ring in another year of the podcast and to celebrate all the amazing pop culture we consumed over the last year! Beauty and the Bitch is definitely sticking around to bring you thoughts, opinions, secret histories and games about all the latest...everything! Well, whatever we want!?

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).

Cheers! We love you BB's!

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!

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.
