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.

We're coming to you late but once you see how much content we crammed into this episode you'll understand why. This week we thought we were bringing you an episode about the reboot of the early aught's classic, HGTV Design Star, but really what we ended up bringing you was almost 90 minutes of our white hot fury. We joked before recording that we'd have the show's run time of complaints but then it turned out this was the curse of having watched this episode of television. From social media challenges, to cruel judging, to all of the reasons why we think british tv is better, we have an almost infinite laundry list of gripes and only some of them are grey and pink.

Join us for an adventure in 90's tv musical production as we unpack the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein Cinderella (you know the one, with Brandy, Whitney Houston, and great ubiquitous character actor Victor Garber??). In between Kirstie reading Victor Garber's IMDB history, we touch on the song mixes, the sound stage vibes, and how much this thing truly slaps. We also promote a certain tv interview that's already aired and unfortunate now-old news about Mr. Hot & Tall In Perpetuity, so this is a blast from the past in pretty much every way.

Sometimes you record an episode of a podcast and think to yourself, man I could really record another episode of that. So here we are, revisiting Ted Lasso. After having a Rebecca reaction to Ted Lasso, Kirstie rewatched the show and is back for another go at talking about what we love about it. Tl:DR we love it and we just want to spend more time talking about it so please come talk to us about Ted Lasso some more.

This week, we pushed the boundaries of geographical internet roadblocks to finally watch The Great British Sewing Bee! While there are no tears over works of art on this iteration of the quaint maker competition, we do get to learn a lot about things like darts and sewing on the bias and whether or not sewing makes for good tv. The most important thing this week is that we get a REALTIME REVIEW at the end of the episode and we have a lot of feelings about it (THANK YOU NIKNIK!).

Have you ever wondered what it would be like for Alec Baldwin to expose himself to Steve Martin on webcam? Well have we got a film for you! This week we're resisting RomComducation with It's Complicated which brought up a lot of beef about kitchens, kitchen renovations, kitchen size, kitchen storage, dream kitchens, and John Krasinski. Also in breaking news we reveal the true identity of QAnon?

This week we're reporting live from the floating glamping dome at Château de la Motte-Husson. We wish??? Alas, we are forced to Escape to the Chateau by way of Dick Strawbridge and his enigmatic aura. If you too enjoy watching questionable people make questionable choices with both their home renovation and their business, look no further than this gem that includes highlights such as taxidermy! narrator shade! growing vegetables and eating them! We actually cannot overstate how much we love this show or how many questions we have about Dick Strawbridge's credentials. If you have information about the petty chateau wars, please contact us!

We've got soooooo much to unpack this week. Kelsey finally has her moment to deliver a friendship gift to Kirstie in the form of Ted Lasso and Kirstie........politely accepted. We spend some time trying to understand why a beautiful, self aware, well humored, kind show about friendship and the workplace wasn't somehow made specifically for Kirstie and the answer is.....fascism? This was our last episode recorded in Trump's America cut us some slack. Oh also Kirstie cries for the first time ever. on the podcast so get hype

It's time to channel our best Ladies Whistledown to throw some shade and adoration at Bridgerton! This is part 2 of 3 of our Pilot Palooza Extravaganza and we're getting into the spoiler zone to talk about the entire season, including costume choices, romance choices, and sex ed choices. We still think the Duke of Hastings is hot, the Other Men are a waste of time, and Sam Heughan can get it (what how did that get in there???). If you liked this, please rate and review with the height of your favorite man of Regency adaptations!

Listen to find out who the winner was and what height we think will dominate the year's famous hot (or not) men. Thanks for helping us get to another podcastiversary!

It's a wonderful feeling, feel the love in the room from the floor to the ceiling. It's that time again, The 2020 Really Fucking Good Television Award Show for Nice People Only is here. With the blessings from above, we send you our love for all of the television we watched in 2020 (and we do mean all 1000 episodes that Kelsey very casually watched). Do note, there was an audio issue with Kelsey's track that we can't explain or fix but we thought this episode was magical enough to preserve it in its current form.

What would Christmas be without revisiting our favorite places? We are returning reluctantly to Evergreen, Vermont, where we can apparently no longer see the North Pole, nor partake in magical advent calanders, but do apparently have plenty of hat factory ghosts, before we jet off to Chicago for a scavenger hunt inspired stay-cation. Tl:dr, we want Hallmark to do more weird townie shit and fewer start-up marketing stunts. Stay tuned for the end when we draft our pilots for Pilot Palooza!! Make sure to make your list and do your homework!

We made it 3 episodes into Hatewatch Holiday before we had to argue about letting Hallmark Fuck (guys, these aren't even Hallmark movies????). We've got hot takes on Streaming search tools, Emma Roberts and Kristen Stewart, a snappy new name for Quarantine Quorner, and a very important new submission to the Christmas Movie Cannon (listen to find out what movie we want you to watch instead of Holidate).

Get your holiday lights and music display kits ready because it's finally time for Hatewatch Holidays 2020! We're kicking off the festivities with A Treat for Christmas... A Christmas Treat... Christmas for Treat... Treatmas? Whatever you want to call it, the important thing here is that our Treat Dad Treat Williams is in not one but two holiday films this year. After a lengthy discussion about the user experiences of streaming services that end in Plus, we're off to the races with The Christmas House, Hallmark's first endeavor to win over the gays. Honestly, it's not as bad as we thought it would be, despite some dicey plot choices (looking at you, fixer-upper on the Hudson). It's another story altogether for Christmas on the Square, arguably the biggest disappointment of our holiday movie season. We're gonna commission an episode of Handsome Justice to investigate the claim of whether angels can fly because they take themselves lightly and also why this movie is so bad. Stay tuned for several more Hatewatch Holidays installments coming soon!

Like Princess Margaret arriving for an official function fashionably late, fabulously drunk, and with no fucks to give, we are rolling up in your podcast feeds with our regular Tuesday episode on...........Saturday. Something something holidays, something something technical difficulties, listen: some of us were busy crafting, watching Princess Diana documentaries, listening to Princess Diana podcasts, and otherwise gossiping about Prince Charles, which cut into editing time. Anyway, we're here to talk about the Crown and somehow ended up talking more about the mask wearing habits of mid level network sitcoms.

It's the great Hatewatch tradition of Make Kirstie Watch A Thing, and this week, she finally caved and watched a Jane Austen adaptation. We're talking about the 2005 Pride and Prejudice, featuring emo Darcy, Kelsey's feelings (and Kirstie's lack thereof), plus some cinematography. If you too think that Kirstie should appreciate Jane Austen more, or you would like us to send you the photo we found of a large paper mache Mr. Darcy in a lake, please contact us at @hatewatchwithus.
