911, what's your emergency? Uhhh....we've just watched the 9-1-1 franchise and we have THOUGHTS. We're coming in hot with toilet babies, Rob Lowe's journey of self discovery and skin care routine, a shocking number of jokes about the Google Campus, and plenty of white saviorism.

Things are getting weird in 2020 and we're coming at ya with some content recommendations to get you through self quarantine! First, wash your hands, then settle in for a grab bag of things to watch, things to avoid, Census PSAs, and Kirstie's soapmaking adventures. We also have a GLOWING review to discuss in detail, and Kirstie gets mad that Kelsey watched a movie without her (some things never change, even during pandemics).

All crew all crew! Our preference sheet includes bad reality TV about boat crews so that means we MUST discuss Below Deck Sailing Yacht immediately. The thing about sailing is that it's different than yachting, and it's hard to say who spends more time on that distinction, the producers or us. Below Deck Sailing Yacht has problematic chefs, problematic chief stews, problematic crew couples, and problematic third wheel captain dads, so buckle up for a wild ride as we cut the engines and raise the sails!

We've got a custom cocktail of television for you this week: add one part Canadian skating spirit, one part Netflix What Have You Done, a dash of 90s figure skating opinions, and garnish with one brief husband cameo. This week we're bringing you the Canadian ratings juggernaut, Battle of the Blades, and the Netflix original, Spinning Out. Come for the acid wash denim ice dancing costumes, stay for shoe shopping plot twist.

Outlander season has returned, and in that spirit, we are bringing to you a spicy hot discussion of a spicy hot man. That's right folks, we are embarking on our favorite pastime and diving into Sam Heughan's IMDB backlog this week. We watched Where the Starlight Ends, a questionable film featuring attempted American accents and also jorts. Then, as a treat, we watched The Spy Who Dumped Me, which will henceforth be referred to as Kirstie's Sam Heughan Sexual Awakening and/or The Time Kelsey Was Right. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoy the raw animal magnetism of Sam Heughan.

It's time to welcome back our oldest Hatewatch tradition, Pilot Palooza! This year, we are mostly disappointed in the pilots and ourselves, but we muddle our way through the Pilot Dumpster Fire of 2019. We discuss Russian Doll, Slings & Arrows, Gentleman Jack, State of the Union, Fleabag, You, and the pilot that chose us, Classic Mary Berry. If you liked this episode, please gift us a subscription to Acorn TV.

We are bringing you hot takes, a play-by-play of our work day as the news broke on Twitter, a preview of a drinking game for our next episode, and a very important game for your work day. We understand your desire to take a different approach to podcast coverage of #Megxit, but these are complicated matters and only we are taking the time to work through them, here, together with our Sad Boi Sex Lions.

Dear loyal subjects, it is finally time to talk about The Crown! We've got feelings about season 3, the monarchy, and the fine fine line between prestige dramas and sad boi lion sex made-for-tv movies. There's also plenty of recast talk, including lamenting the loss of a Wine Matthew and gaining the good and great Tobias Menzies (we for sure do not have a Tobias Bias). If you would like to congratulate us for successfully recording an episode in the same place at the same time for the same reason, please do so by giving us a 5-star review!

We're taking a Christmas journey to two Europes, both of which are based in a reality so otherworldly, Candace Cameron-Bure remains our only tether to life here on Earth. First, we journey to Rome to catch up with our old friend Lacey in the Hallmark Original, Christmas in Rome. It's another Christmas, and another jockish businessman who only knows spreadsheets and overtime, but luckily Lacey is there to help him knead bread, however questionable the technique. Then we head to Aldovia to reunite with Queen Amber, in A Christmas Prince 3: The Trilogy We Never Asked For. I'm sorry, :The Royal Baby. We're bringing the hot takes on birth plans, contractions, paint rollers, feminism, and the naming conventions of fictional countries. With the Hatewatch Holidays winding down, it's time to start looking ahead to two of our favorite annual traditions, The Really Fucking Good Television Award Show For Nice People Only, and Pilot Palooza. Send us your suggestions!

Hatewatch Holidays continue this week with two new original movies from the eternally sexless Hallmark Channel. First, we're revisiting Evergreen for the THIRD time with Christmas In Evergreen 3: Tidings of Joy. Our favorite totally real Vermont town is back to their whimsical ways with a plot heavy advent calendar time capsule situation! Stay tuned for next year when we inevitably cover Christmas In Evergreen 4: Small Boy Gets Another Key and Everybody Goes To Therapy. Our second film this week is Sense, Sensibility, and Snowmen, which carries on the Hallmark tradition of disgracing Jane Austen's good name for the sake of Christmas content. Also, the podcast would like to note that the jingle bells in this episode is not in fact our own festive sound effect but rather the resident pod dog channeling the spirit of Christmas with his collar. We're not sorry.

It's the kickoff to Hatewatch Holidays and we're doing our best to get into the holiday spirit by knocking out some very un-merry content from the jump. First we reunite with Kelsey's One True Dad and Kirstie's new Problematic Uncle, Dennis Quaid, in the Netflix Christmas show Merry Happy Whatever. We get to relive all the highlight of moments in television like Last Man Standing and Everybody Loves Raymond and Dennis Quaid's relationship with much younger women and the patriarchy. Then we are discussing the Freeform reality show Wrap Battle. Join us in rapidly wrapping this pilot (see what we did there?) and exploring some reality tv deep state conspiracy theories. Stay tuned, there is lots for Christmas Coverage to come!

Also, please let us know if you genuinely know who we can donate to to help the elephants. Happy Holidays!

Somehow we're still watching ABC this week as we DIVE IN to The (regrettable) Little Mermaid Live. We air our grievances about the false advertising that led us here, popup countdowns, crowd participation, and Shaggy's apparent kidnapping at the hands of ABC. But never fear! If you can help Kirstie acquire the naming rights to Score: A Hockey Musical, she has a distribution plan that will knock your fins(?) off.

This week, we are talking about ABC's fall tv offering, but we are ALSO talking about The Barenaked Ladies (again). First, we discuss Stumptown and Kirstie's war on lead female characters on network tv. Then, we try to work through our Downward Dog PTSD with Emergence, a show that is Spo0o0o0o0o0ky. Come for the Topical Content, stay for the Vermont dome folklore. If you are a broadcast exec, please come talk to us about what we can offer by way of Victorian ghosts if you set your show in New England instead of New York! Also, Downward Dog was a bad show.
