It's everyone's favorite problematic holiday, Chris Columbus Day! Instead of celebrating the historical figure who did the genocide across North America, we are celebrating the casual racism of children's film director Chris Columbus. This year we are discussing the film Adventures in Babysitting, and listeners, we are deeply concerned. Then, it's time for us to circle back on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, one of the great films of 2001. We take this opportunity to explore many of the other great films of 2001 and their standing against Harry Potter. Find out how we feel about the Thumbs from Spy Kids, and if you have any information regarding the not 2001 film Ella Enchanted, please find us on Twitter @hatewatchwithus.

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.

The time has finally come friends! The Outlander Omnibus has arrived and we are the most hype. First, we introduce you to our unconventional take on the show, Outlander: An American Girl Story. We cover all the hits like Meet Claire! Claire Learns A Lesson! Claire Saves The Day! Claire Makes A Friend! It's a costume drama steeped in historical moments but for Adults (and the occasional Ebay Seller?)! Then, we go a different adaptive route and try our hand at Sorting the characters of Outlander. Find out who the Surprise Slytherin is, which family is most likely to produce Gryffindors, ponder with us why there weren't more Ravenclaws, and appreciate the strength of the Hufflepuff representation. There's truly something for everyone in this episode even if you don't like time travel or pagans!

It's one of the biggest Hatewatch Holidays of the year! Get you a guy who can do just one, because it's Chris Columbus Day! Join Kirstie, Kelsey and her bread starter in celebrating the second most douchiest Chris Columbus we know by covering two of his cinematic masterpeices, Harry Potter and Home Alone. We've got debates such as whether or not Susan Bones had a speaking role, fucking flutes, naive newborn babies on all sides, two of the Three G's of the DanRad School of Acting, and a receptionist named Dambledoor. Mark your calendars for next year!

Winter has come for House Hatewatch. We rejoined our forlorn ensemble cast and our lost and lonely writers for yet another season of Game of Thrones. Though to be honest, we might have been watching Harry Potter. We weren't sure. We've got our Official Dick Joke Count, the Airing of Grievances, the Li'l Finger News Bulletin, and an introduction to our fantasy teams - House Snark and Valar Prestigious. Tune in every Sunday night for our 15 minute recaps and updates, and feel free to live tweet along with us using the hashtag #hatewatchGOT.
