We are filthy trash dogs folks, hear us roar. We love trash so much because we come from a long line of trash dogs and as such we could not resist revisiting the ultimate filthy trash dog, the ABC 8 episode one hit wonder, Downward Dog. TL;Dr we still don't know why everyone except us loved this show but we sure don't!

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).

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.

Y'all gotta get as hype as Kelsey for this episode because the final verdict on season one of Downward Dog was released recently and it's time to put this show to bed. We talk about the last couple of episodes of the season and all the reasons your dog can't be you boyfriend, even if he is narrating your millennial life. Then we take everything we've learned from Downward Dog to discuss narrators: ones we like, important ones, literary devices, and the best Mad Men AU ever written. Dear listeners, please feel free to jump on that opportunity and send us the Peggy/Joan/Carrie Bradshaw narrator fan fiction of our dreams.

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!
