Coming in hot with some Spicy Hot Bonus Content, it's our first ever bind off special! Binding off is the knitting term for finishing a project, and hot damn was season 6 of House of Cards a project. We're weaving in the ends on some thoughts and feelings about this season of the show including some returning favorites like Power Claire and her Power Hair, Cathy Durant's pant suits, Tammy 1, wild speculation about next season, some real good puns, and of course, we managed to get a few digs in at the ABC show Downward Dog. Stay tuned for future bind off episodes! Regular episodes will be back atcha on Tuesday evenings.

Ok first we're gonna shoot straight with you, yeah we know the sound quality is rough, but it does get better. Hatewatch With Us: Production is hard and cross platform editing is rude. Just like these, the badlands of our audio quality, we will be exploring both the peaks and valleys of RomComs in Part 3 of Kirstie's RomComducation. We've got the movies that defined the genre as well as the movies that destroyed the genre and trust us, we've got feelings on them all. Then, we decided to watch a show no one asked for: ABC's Downward Dog. We've got feelings about allegories, dogs, CGI, millennials, and more. Come for the snark, stay for the knitting patterns in a new segment/social media campaign we're calling Hatewatch Knitting Circle. Stay tuned for Downward Dog related project updates, and feel free to send up any and all of your knitting projects!

House of Cards sure was a thing that happened huh? The slog is real y'all. We've got feelings, we've got gripes, Power Claire has Power Hair and Beau Willimon is a Digimon. Then it's time to saddle up because we're headed to Lil' Hygge's Knitting Corner to discuss all the ins and outs of consuming media while knitting, crafting, or otherwise multitasking. If you thought House of Cards was a slog through dry government dialogue, just wait until you hear how we feel about counting stitches. You'll also get to hear (in real time) the spontaneous creation of our new segment, Hatewatch Knitting Circle. Please join us in the joy of knitting by sharing your knitting patterns, projects, and favorite knitting television! It's Lil' Hygge approved, wholesome fun on this podcast.

This week we're getting romantical. We've got Part Two of Kirstie's RomComducation, where we discuss two new categories of RomComs: RomComs of Kelsey's Formative Years, and High School RomComs. You're going to learn a lot about Kelsey and we're all going to learn a little something about our teenage selves. Keeping in the spirit, we're bringing back our favorite non-media segment, Hatewatch Analog, because TIS THE SEASON! That's right, Wedding Season is upon us and we all know that Facebook feeds across the country are about to be barraged with a mix of wedding photo albums and statuses from single people who are annoyed by wedding photo albums. We figured you might need some coping skills, so our gifts to you include Randos of Facebook, Fantasy Wedding League, and a few pointers on appropriate Hatewatching of people IRL. Bonus, we're offering personalized Grand Romantic Gestures to anyone who engages with us on Twitter or by email, and bonus points to anyone who makes us goofy Say Anything super cuts.

April Showers bring May Netflix Originals. Or something. Netflix decided to release all of their originals in one month so we decided to talk about it before the month was over. We've got Pavlov's Netflix and Hulu branded tin foil hats. Next, we begin Kirstie's RomComducation with an overview of some of the key Foundational and Quintessential RomComs. Kirstie muddles through all her feelings and misconceptions of the genre and winds up doing Journey covers and Kelsey gets lost in time and space. It's a pretty productive conversation. This will be a multi-episode series so get hype!

You sunk my aircraft carrier in the parlor with the revolver! This week, we took yet another dive into the realm of movies based on toys with the little known Board Game Movie genre. We take you through sex-farce-McCarthyism allegories, alien take overs, chicken burrito heists, and a series of running dog poop jokes. WE HAVE TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED WHO, WHERE, WITH WHAT! Sir, that's a hit.

It's that time of year again! Eurovision 2017 came in hot this year as a beacon of headlights in these, our gnarly modern times(drink twice).

Come for the performance recaps, stay for the world peace.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!! That's right folks, this week we're tackling a MAJOR PROBLEM IN SOCIETY. That problem is spoilers, and much like the conversation in Episode 2 about cable, Kirstie and Kelsey will come to an awkward impasse because these crazy kids just don't live the same life. Just another sign of these, our divisive, modern times. Then for something completely different, we attempt our first Hatewatch Analog, a joyous hatewatch of non-media life happenings. This time, it's office supplies.....because that's a thing people care about we guess. It's 15 minutes of all of our feels about pens, notebooks, binders, and everything else you can find down at the local Dunder Mifflin.

This episode contains a lot of soul searching, deep shit, and our feelings about human emotions. In the first lesson of Kelsey's Rom Com curriculum, we watch Catastrophe and revel in its Britishness, saltiness, and joyfulness. Then, we talk about characters you're intended to hate and what it means to like or hate characters. We cover ground from the HGTV Prestige Russel Crowe blockbuster Almost Famous, to Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, You're The Worst, Girls, and many other properties in between. It's basically a cityscape of properties with hate-able characters, and we round the whole thing out with a deep exploration of our most human vulnerabilities. We also finally created the Hatewatch With Us Drinking Game to make these episodes a little higher stakes.
PS: We know Almost Famous is actually by Cameron Crowe. Shut up.

This episode we do a lot of soul searching in an attempt to discover the true meaning of reboots, revivals, and spin offs. We've got vocabulary lessons, cinematography lessons, the complete history of reboots, revivals, and Vince Gilligan's television empire, a Kirstie/Kelsey Origin Story, thoughts on vertical integration, and so much more! Friendly reminder that season three of Better Call Saul is a thing, so get hype!

Whoa baby do we cover some GROUND in this episode. We've got a throw back to Anastasia, we hatewatch the reboot of Beauty and the Beast, and we get to Hatewatch Kelsey's Joy in celebration of the announcement of NBC's Great British Bake Off knock-off, The Handmade Project. This takes us on a journey through films sets, gender roles, casting, bad CGI, and all our Comfort TV feels. So saddle up your miniature horses, Lil' Hygge is taking this dog and pony show on the road.

This week we dive deep into some arm chair psychologist shit with the Made-For-TV American Girl Doll Movies. To all the Samantha's Felicity's and Kirsten's out there, we apologize in advance. We're throwing it back to the Revolutionary War, Victorian times, our roots as nerds at any age, and the WB.

This week is all about Kelsey settling scores. First, she takes a bullet for us all while taking Buzzfeed to task over NBC's new show (and falsely advertised Parks and Rec placebo) Trial and Error. Then, she challenges Kirstie's assertions that she knows anything about network television with a new game segment, conveniently timed as a spring TV preview.

In this episode we split the Hatewatch Difference. First, Kelsey explores a hatewatch staple, the Prestige HBO Drama Tiny House Hunters. We cover all the bases including yurts, millennial humor, and a Tiny House Hunters drinking game. Then we enter Kelsey's fear landscape with a Hatewatch BYOB, a segment where we each get to bring something to the table potluck style. In this case, The Bachelor serves as the stand in for that shitty friend who always brings PBR, and while Kirstie fails to justify or otherwise expand upon any of her original talking points, we do get pretty deep into some weird shit.

Today we quietly ignore our bad internet connection in order tackle a major point of contention in our friendship: Kirstie doesn't watch cable but Kelsey does! So spicy. In this episode, Kirstie fails to argue anything better than "I'm cheap" and Kelsey fails to argue anything better than "I like cable". Then, we celebrate the announcement of Matt Weiner/Weiner's live action Anastasia reboot by revisiting the 1997 animated classic (and Kirstie spends the whole segment misstating the year very confidently). We discuss ball gowns, our One True Dimitri, and our gratitude that this film has returned to Netflix.
