This week's episode is a testiment to women who have it all and the compromises they have to make, such as finding the time to record an entire episode in one sitting. In our first recording session we bring you your favorite segment, Listen to Kirstie and Kelsey Google, and react in real time to the 2018 Hallmark Christmas movie lineup. There are several hot titles we're looking forward to including apperances from at least one Candace. In our second recording, we bring you the Film That Was promised: Little Italy. We beg you, do not watch this movie but do listen to this segment because we've got bespoke rooftop garden lamps, organic pizza dreams, taking shots while playing sexy rain soccer, wet armpit make outs, The Best Pizza Competition, and lots of premade dough. We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

It's time for one of our favorite Hatewatch Holidays: Christopher Columbus Day! We carry on the Hatewatch tradition of spending some time with the first two Harry Potter films. This year it's Chamber of Secrets and while we have a lot of gripes about the adaptive choices Chris Columbus made, it turned out we had a lot of gripes with JK Rowling, Ginny Weasley, and the romcoms our generation was promised. Then we discuss the 1995 film Nine Months, a nice and accidental tie in from recent events from Hatewatch Nation. Chris Columbus gets back on his bullshit, Hugh Grant is a dweeb, and y'all get the birth story you never asked for. After all, the big childbirth scene is every actresses dream??? The plot really thickens when we find cause to give thanks to Chris Columbus, which brings a whole new meaning to Columbus Day.

This week we are taking you through the hole in the fabric of space-time, back 5 weeks to our first attempt at returning from hiatus. It was a simpler time when Kirstie was getting a lot less sleep and watching a lot more TV, and Kelsey was living her best RomCom life. First we discussed all the TV Kirstie watched on maternity leave, including the gringiness of 90s sitcoms, the argument for the 30 minute sitcom as a format, and Kirstie admitting she was right to lose the great Brooklyn 99 Fight of 2018. Then we have a rare opportunity to put a positive spin on everyone's favorite segment, Netflix, What Have You Done? With a pep in our step and sheer delight in our mics, we review the Netflix RomCom To All The Boys I loved Before, as well as praising the platform for their contributions to the RomCom Renaissance. For the second week in a row, we're glad to be back!

WE'RE READY!!!!! Lol get it? We're back from hiatus with content timely and not at all timely. First, Kelsey takes one for th team and reprots back on watching this year's Emmys. Honestly, we could have probably stayed on hiatus for this one. Then we're bringing you Ready Player One in all its white-male-Star-Wars-Prequels-CGI mediocrity. We have a drinking game and complaints aplenty. Did you miss us? Cuz we sure missed you more than we would have missed this movie had it never been made. We're working on new content so watch your feeds!!

This week, we're checking in from hiatus with a very special guest - the good and great Frank Ramblings from Beer With Geeks, Supergirl TV Talk, and more! We're here to bring you some quality field reporting on the summer reality TV landscape, a place that many of us love and many more of us fear. First up, Frank makes Kelsey watch Bachelor In Paradise, which includes a giant stuffed puppy murder and a truly impressive bird impression. Then, we're on to Making It - better known as The Great British Craft Off - because who isn't here for a delightful Pawnee reunion that involves felt? Thanks to Frank for coming by to hatewatch this week!

Even though we're on semi-hiatus, we're still here bringing you spicy hot new content! Actually, this content is very old, and we're just bad at editing these days. This week's episode pulls from our favorite grab bag, the one that Pop Culture Happy Hour fans unknowingly created for us. First, we get into things we refuse to watch, and we learn that Kirstie has beef about content that people love too deeply. Then, we talk about regrettable hobbies, which turns out to be a regrettable segment topic too. But we make the best of it and spend most of our time discussing puzzles. Be sure to stick around after we say goodbye to catch Kelsey's best/worst Freudian slip of 2018!

Back when we recorded this, we were so relevant and ready for our cultural moment. But then the internet betrayed us and thus we were lost to time much like the two time-warping topics we have for you this week. First, we talk about the new season of Arrested Development, our feelings about mid-2000s political satire, and we put all the men in rice. Then, we take a deep dive into the highly anticipated new romcom, Little Italy, staring Emma Roberts and notorious Anti-Sand advocate Hayden Christensen. We write some off-season Hallmark fanfiction, explore Hayden Christensen's biography and escape to the farm.

We're a little late but still celebrating Kelsey's week of content delight and talking about The Americans' series finale. Then, we borrow an idea from PCHH fan requests and discuss fast food restaurants. Kirstie has some advice for road trippers and throws (undeserved) shade at the 99. Other highlights include an important Grand Designs red alert and a Perd Hapley appearance.

There's another Star War in theaters which means its time for another Hatewatch. This time its Kelsey who DELIGHTEDLY takes one for the team by seeing SOLO: A Star Wars Story and bringing back a whole universe of feelings, thesis ideas, and attractive disasters. Listen as she makes bold proclomations about space hijinx, the RomCom, space sex, Han Solo Lite, Sam Heughan in Space, and declares yet another unpopular Star War as HER Star War. We're also sure to rehash old favorites like Kelsey Wants Everyone To Bone, some cheap digs at the Daves, shipflags and Outlander feels. Whether or not this is YOUR Star War, it will be your hatewatch.

This week, we're revisiting Eurovision 2018 and talking about the semifinalists, because we just can't get enough Eurovision here on Hatewatch With Us. You're in for a lot of middling, forgettable songs, and Kelsey drinking juuust enough wine to make sweeping promises about her editing capabilities. We also promised a link! So here's that...

If you're looking for more jokes about ship flags, you've come to the right place. This episode begins with an adventure into Scrabble content that goes to a real weird place. Then, we have a fight complete with media criticism trash talk about Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NBC's Schur-a-palooza, and lazy viewing. Don't forget the bonus content where Kelsey accidentally ghosts the podcast!

This episode was delayed by engagements, dog bites, multiple internet outages, and a general feeling in the universe that time is meaningless. But Captain Feelings is a persistent one, and we made it through this feelings journey just for you, our dear listeners. This week we're discussing the Jane the Virgin season 4 finale, all of our feelings, and then more of our feelings. Basically, prepare to Hatewatch Our Feels because that's all we've got for you this week. Kirstie and Kelsey fight and there's rose sorbet involved. This is your official warning that EUROVISION is coming for your feeds on Tuesday!

The theme of this episode is Netflix, What Have You Done? But it also could have been Soda, What Have You Done? Sweet Tea, What Have You Done? IMDB Pro, What Have You Done? We BYOB two Netflix originals. Kelsey watched the Netflix Original RomCom When We First Met and her algorithms will never be the same. We learn about IMDB and all the different ways you can tag panties. Then, Kirstie reveals a shocking plot twist: Netflix, What Have You Done can have positive connotations! We discuss the Series of Unfortunate Events, Kirstie's unbridled joy over television adaptations and dark stories for children. It's a bumpy episode for Netflix, Kirstie's knowledge of actor's names, movies of the mid 2000s and our understanding of the fundamental question, Netflix, What Have You Done?

That’s right folks, it’s finally time to debate the differences between Outlander and Game of Thrones (multitudes rejoice!). Highlights include The Case of the Missing Thirsty Shoulder Footage, How to Make a Villain 101, and a classic Kirstie Feelings Journey™. If you also think Game of Thrones is garbage, come at us in our Twitter mentions @hatewatchwithus!
