In a first for our podcast, we're live watching the latest DCOM du jour, ZOMBIES. This classic spin on Romeo and Juliet features a tale as old as time, that of a cheerleader with a bad wig and the zombie who loves her. Listen for our real time reactions to the magic that is Bucky the Cheer Captain.
This week, we have a surprise interview with bestselling YA author Beth Revis, who graciously sat down to chat with Ariel about Stranger Things. They talk the redemption of Steve, if we can ever stop worrying about Will, and of course, Barb gets a shout out. Beth also shares her favorite TGIF show and there's tons of Babysitters Club references. Plus, Ariel's trademark interview lightning round and Beth gives us the scoop on her new book, "Give the Dark My Love." Find Beth on social media @bethrevis.
This week, we're diving into Grown-ish, Freeform's spinoff of Black-ish. Its a long one, but a good one. Does anyone working on this show know what college is like? Are we getting more Tracie Ellis Ross? And that direct address, oh man (side note - we find our preferred narration style, and it may be controversial. Don't @ us.) Winning Personalities That Walk Into a Night Class Count: 6.
In this episode, we finish off the first season of Marvel's Runaways and BOY HOWDY do we have thoughts. We start with a fight about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, take a quick dive into why on EARTH Gert pronounces it arsenic like that, and end with our hopes for season two, with a tiny panic attack about Rupaul's Drag Race thrown in for good measure. But seriously, what the HELL is the Pride?!
We're ALIVE! We've returned from the depths of the internet to talk about the first half of the first season of Marvel's Runaways. Once again, Dana has watched the first half while Ariel has arrived hyper-prepared and read the source material. Listen as Dana lists all of her first reactions (I mean, really, WHAT is going on with that dinosaur?!) and Ariel tries to avoid spoiling it for her. Gert is the best, Tina is weird, and Dana has a deep "Get off my lawn" old lady moment about Molly. Girl Who Walks Into a High School count: who even knows anymore?
Jughead Jones is back, baby. And this time, he's on a motorcycle. Season 2 is here and its pretty cool. Girl Who Sashays Into a Hospital Count: 1, but its Cheryl, so its as powerful as 1000.
This week, we're featuring our generation's ultimate comedy - Boy Meets World. We go over some of our absolute favorite moments from the TGIF classic. Plus, Ariel's thoughts on Teen Wolf ending. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: One Topanga, One Angela, and One Jennifer Love Fefferman.
This week (end), we dive into the surprise of the summer - The Bold Type. Freeform, you can get it. We love it. We love Melora Hardin, we love Sutton, we love their jade-egg grabbing friendship. Plus, lengthy impressions of the "Previously On The Bold Type" voice. Jacqueline Who Walks Into Our Hearts Count: 1 times 1,000.
Today, Ariel is joined by Brent Bailey (Emma Approved) for a surprise interview! Thanks, Brent! Brent is in the super awesome movie LBJ, which is officially being released nationwide November 3rd! Take listen to hear about auditioning for Emma Approved, what movies Brent really loves (hint: Ashton Kutcher), a special teen-themed lighting round.
In this week's episode, we watch a classic of our generation, and meet the love of our lives - the one, the only, Seth Cohen. Dana loves it, Ariel feels "meh" about it, and Sandy Cohen's eyebrows are the only thing that matters. Also, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO RACHEL BILSON?! The 2000's are strong with this one. Plus, a message of hope for American Girl Store employees. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: None, but again, Seth Cohen, so who cares?
This week, Ariel takes a bullet for Dana and recaps the entirety of Famous In Love's first season, to Dana's shock and horror. From grabbing people's balls in a crowded restaurant to the insane plot of this "Biggest Series Since Harry Potter" movie, we go through each painful moment of this series so you don't have to! Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: NONE because they're not in high school, which should've been the first warning sign.
Its Tuesday but we're still launching our first ever Failure Fridays with "Twisted." "Twisted" has everything you need for a great mystery show - unreliable narrators, child murderers, and a dreamboat named Avan Jogia as our lead Rebel Without a Cause. What went wrong? OH SO MANY THINGS. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: 2 + 1 Extremely Broody Young Man.
Trigger warning this week, babes. This week, we watched Netflix's controversial drama, "13 Reasons Why." Its so upsetting that Dana gave up trying not to swear. Ariel makes a strong argument for the show, but in the end we can't come up with a good reason (see what we did there?) to watch this show. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: 2.
In Episode 2, we dive deep into the breakout hit of last season - season one of the CW's Riverdale, which Dana watched in two days. Grundie: Why? The drug thing: No, really, why? What's happening with Betty's fingernails? Why did Archie think a music career was a good idea? We cover that plus the Gothic magic that is Thornhill, plus lots of talk about the raw sexuality of Jughead Jones. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: 1.
Welcome to the first episode of Girl Walks Into a High School! For our inaugural episode, Ariel and Dana share their two favorite shows right now: Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf. Ari doesn't understand A's grammatical choices, and Dana thinks that Scott's coach needs to settle down. A treaty is made over the magic that is Stiles. Girl Who Walks Into a High School Count: lots.
