Kirstie is a Vermonter and municipal bureaucrat (and yes it's exactly like Parks and Rec, binders and all). She likes music, podcasts, politics, beer, cocktails, Snapchat, knitting and her cat.

Note from your cohosts: This week's episode is coming to you from several weeks ago, so there's a noteworthy lack of commentary about these, our ever changing modern times! In lieu of begging for 5-star reviews, please focus your efforts on a much more worthwhile cause and join us in donating and learning how you can help at the following links: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/# https://secure.actblue.com/donate/bail_funds_george_floyd?refcode=cwg
Have you done that? Great! Now if what you need is some escapist tv, we fortuitously chose this week to talk about The Durrells in Corfu. This show may or may not be a prequel to Mamma Mia (yes we know there already is a prequel), and what it lacks in song and dance numbers it makes up for in sass and men that are both Hot and Tall.

What happens when one cohost low key picks up homesteading? Apparently, this. We're here to bring you a true hatewatch this week, Discovery Channel's Homestead Rescue. We watched the pilot and we have thoughts about goat enclosures, conspiracy theories, and the patriarchy. We also workshop an iteration of Homestead Flip or Flop, which feels like a lot more fun (call us, Discovery Channel?). While we're at it, Cottage Life Network, please also call us and give us a way to access Brojects. Thank you!

The story of this podcast is that we won't be discussing Eurovision 2020, because it was a lie. Instead, we are here to talk about our feelings as they relate to the Netflix original series, Never Have I Ever. You all are delighted, we assume. Come for Hot or Tall, stay for tales of high school romance from Kirstie's past. Also, if you know the height of Ben Gross, please contact us immediately at @hatewatchwithus.

Welcome to our slightly delayed review of Outlander, season 5! We've got highs, we've got lows, and we've got petty thoughts. But that's not all, folks. We channeled the spirit of Outlander with this unwieldy 1:40 minute episode, which means we also had time for Mustache Moments™️, Jamie Fraser's Big Hagrid Energy, and wild speculation about the future of this series! If you don't care about Kirstie & Kelsey's Kuarantine Korner (rude), feel free to skip ahead to minute 8 to jump into Outlander talk.

This week, we're bringing the energy of an overconfident showrunner in a 3 minute postshow featurette with a topic we're fondly calling Inside the Dick. We present some groundbreaking theories including: audiences are smart, clip shows right after episodes are dumb, and maybe certain men should be less smug. This episode isn't an Outlander episode, but it's also not NOT and Outlander episode. Please enjoy, please stay home, and please tell us what you're watching so we can mention it in our new segment, Kirstie and Kelsey's Kuarantine Korner! --> @hatewatchwithus

Hello loyal listeners! This week, we are chatting about Miracle Workers and Miracle Workers: Dark Ages, a nice show (shows?) that demands absolutely nothing from you during these our Quarantimes. If you enjoy the more unhinged end of the Daniel Radcliffe spectrum or simply want to laugh at some poop jokes, this show (shows?) is for you. This episode features a trademark Hot or Tall investigation and at least two teasers for upcoming episodes!

We're using the Force to channel ourselves into your podcast feeds this week with an old favorite, Nerducation! That's right, Kirstie watched another Star War and we're here to attempt to tell you about it with our usual attention to detail and respect for the lore. After watching nine films, we're here to bring the serious Star Wars insights, mainly: 1. Who fucks 2. Who should fuck 3. Is it dumb? Maybe? 4. The names are bad
Don't forget to tell us what % Star Wars would be improved by Outlander Kisses by voting in our Twitter poll at @hatewatchwithus!

We are coming to you from The Great Quarantine of 2020 to talk about a very good thing that happened - the final season of Schitt's Creek! We've got lots of thoughts on character development, TV weddings, narrative arcs, and costume choices. We would also like to advise you against both purchasing a home without the consent of your partner, and singing, in general, at any time. Hopefully you, too, enjoyed this happy ending!

What happens when you come to recording night to discuss one film, but the universe delivers you a different mission? Is it destiny? Kind of like when you arrive to your first day of university and you bump into your future wife, who happens to have a life size poster of you on her wall? Today at Hatewatch, we are here to discuss the age-old questions, Who are they? and What is this?, as we watch not one but two(!) made for TV movies about the love story of Prince William & Kate Middleton. This episode features all of your favorites, including Kirstie and Kelsey Google A Thing, Hot or Tall, and requisite judgment towards Some Members of the Royal Family. If you know who any of these people are, please let us know via a review or tweet us at @hatewatchwithus!

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!

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!

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.
