We talk for 40 minutes about Al Franken. We are conflicted. Should he resign or not? Melissa brings perspective from Kate Harding in The Washington Post: I’m a feminist. I study rape culture. And I don’t want Al Franken to resign. And then we talk about Justice League. [WARNING: some spoilers] We loved it but Andy and Melissa have some complaints. Superman II. Coco. Andy missed his screening because of Mike Pence!!! Mark’s personal story is why Pixar is amazing. Pixar makes us cry.
We’re back with a supersized episode so giant, it had to be split in two parts! First up, the pop culture part! Melissa saw Coco and it’s amazing! Andy and Mark saw Thor: Ragnarok and loved it, too! And then a long discussion on the ethics of Star Trek: Discovery . Also the ethics of paying for CBS: All Access. Anthony Rapp, Kevin Spacey, and the culture of Hollywood and sexual assault.
