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.

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.
