This is it, after a long month winding through the country side, we have climbed the mountain and reached the absolute pinnacle of our life on the rails, where we found Coastal Railways with Julie Walters. We've seen a lot trains and a lot of countryside but we have never seen anything as joyful as Julie Walters riding the train. We're smoking some fish, touring some trailers, eating some lobsters, and learning a lot about victorian train ettiquette.

Dear loyal subjects, it is finally time to talk about The Crown! We've got feelings about season 3, the monarchy, and the fine fine line between prestige dramas and sad boi lion sex made-for-tv movies. There's also plenty of recast talk, including lamenting the loss of a Wine Matthew and gaining the good and great Tobias Menzies (we for sure do not have a Tobias Bias). If you would like to congratulate us for successfully recording an episode in the same place at the same time for the same reason, please do so by giving us a 5-star review!

This week we bring you a gift of pure delight. Two shows full of field trips, lessons learned, and throwbacks to other classic hatewatches. We call this, "Cottage Life, UK". First, we bring you Mary Portus, Secret Shopper, where we visit a bridal shop and eat some coleslaw sandwiches. Kelsey finds out trains exist, Mary Portus' origin story is revealed, Kirstie learns vocabulary and we find ourselves trying to navigate some messily told character stories. Then we transition to Weekend Aristocrats, a show about rich white men and their endless fear of plebs. Kelsey gets to relive the show vicariously through this episode, from peacocks to divorces. Come for the Halloween, stay for the tough conversations about socioeconomic inequality and generational aristocracy.
