Indoorswomen - Episode 75 - Trilogies: Thrice As Nice

Trilogies! Join us as we talk about what makes a good trilogy, why some trilogies fail, and which trilogies are our favorites.

In this episode:

Meg has a message for Domhnall Gleeson, and Jen schools BuzzFeed. 

We recast the leading roles for Fight Club and Titanic in a game of "Gender Swap."

Shazam! and Schitt’s Creek get our stamp of approval during random recommendations.

And more!

Our intro/outro music is "We Are Highscore" by Krackatoa.

Jen and Meg are on summer vacation (jk we’re both up to our eyeballs in work), so it’s rerun time! We bring you: Never Judge a Book by Its Movie (Or a Graphic Novel by Its Adapted TV Series?) In this episode, we ask ourselves the age-old question: which to consume first, the book or the movie? The answer may surprise you! In our discussion, we relate our experiences with various forms of adapted media including Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, superhero movies and comics, Game of Thrones, Gone Girl, Harry Potter, and more! We also play the hit card game “Geek Out” and try to stump each other with trivia! Stay tuned for our random recs: The “My Dad Wrote a Porno” podcast and Westworld. Spoiler: They are awesome. As always, our amazing intro/outro music is “We are Highscore” by Krackatoa.

Hello, we are back with original content! In this episode, Meg and Jen discuss tropes in a new game we like to call “TV tropes roulette”! For our main module, we talk about our favorite pop culture sidekicks, from Samwise Gamgee to John Watson to Harry Potter’s pals Hermione and Ron, plus a quick shout-out to Star Wars sidekicks the audience can’t understand (Chewie, R2D2, BB8, etc). We wrap everything up with a discussion of the Pokemon Go phenomenon!

Next week we head off to San Diego Comic Con and hope to be dropping you a line from the convention! Until then, thanks for listening

As usual, our excellent intro/outro music is “We Are Highscore” by Krackatoa.
