HGTV bought three reality shows at auction sight unseen, and despite adding a multitude of high end finishes, they're definitely over their reno budget! Will they stand to make a profit on this flip, or will they be beaten out by comps on Cottage Life Network? Who's to say? (We are. We are to say.) That's right folks, we've watched all of the Flip or Flop spinoffs with our favorite cyborg duo Christina and Tarek. From surprise weddings to on screen weeping, there is simultaneously a lot to cover and also nothing at all here.

Today we're going to sit down at the wheel and throw an episode for y'all about some British reality tv coming to an HBO Max near you. But first - the Emmy nominations were released and we have thoughts (shocker). Basically if Schitt's Creek doesn't sweep we're quitting. So after our designated time for gripes and gloats, we're on to The Dog House (UK?), a show that's a real mixed bag featuring puppies and poor decision making. While we aren't sure The Dog House is for us, the show that decidedly IS for us is The Great Pottery Throwdown (or as we so confidently call it, The Great British Throwdown - at some point all show names are the same). We learn about ceramics, we learn about how horny pottery can be, there's history lessons... and we won't spill the beans here but it's possible we may even have a new addition to the Dad Canon. Tune in to find out!

What happens when one cohost low key picks up homesteading? Apparently, this. We're here to bring you a true hatewatch this week, Discovery Channel's Homestead Rescue. We watched the pilot and we have thoughts about goat enclosures, conspiracy theories, and the patriarchy. We also workshop an iteration of Homestead Flip or Flop, which feels like a lot more fun (call us, Discovery Channel?). While we're at it, Cottage Life Network, please also call us and give us a way to access Brojects. Thank you!

All crew all crew! Our preference sheet includes bad reality TV about boat crews so that means we MUST discuss Below Deck Sailing Yacht immediately. The thing about sailing is that it's different than yachting, and it's hard to say who spends more time on that distinction, the producers or us. Below Deck Sailing Yacht has problematic chefs, problematic chief stews, problematic crew couples, and problematic third wheel captain dads, so buckle up for a wild ride as we cut the engines and raise the sails!

We've got a custom cocktail of television for you this week: add one part Canadian skating spirit, one part Netflix What Have You Done, a dash of 90s figure skating opinions, and garnish with one brief husband cameo. This week we're bringing you the Canadian ratings juggernaut, Battle of the Blades, and the Netflix original, Spinning Out. Come for the acid wash denim ice dancing costumes, stay for shoe shopping plot twist.

It's the kickoff to Hatewatch Holidays and we're doing our best to get into the holiday spirit by knocking out some very un-merry content from the jump. First we reunite with Kelsey's One True Dad and Kirstie's new Problematic Uncle, Dennis Quaid, in the Netflix Christmas show Merry Happy Whatever. We get to relive all the highlight of moments in television like Last Man Standing and Everybody Loves Raymond and Dennis Quaid's relationship with much younger women and the patriarchy. Then we are discussing the Freeform reality show Wrap Battle. Join us in rapidly wrapping this pilot (see what we did there?) and exploring some reality tv deep state conspiracy theories. Stay tuned, there is lots for Christmas Coverage to come!

We're back (on schedule!) for Part 2 of our regrettable series, Make Each Other Watch A Hatewatch. This week, Kelsey has a moral crisis about watching TV on a laptop as we discuss the MTV series Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club. We're so traumatized by the whole thing that we might buy a whole beach in Mykonos. So join us for hot Annie James takes, Lohan Group empire business updates, and ultimately more discussions of Below Deck Mediterranean. And remember, if you want to be our brand ambassador, please rate and review us on Apple Podcasts!

All crew! All crew! Please meet us in the bridge for a Hatewatch meeting!
Get ready to fill out your preference sheets and drink a whole bottle of wine because we've discovered Below Deck Mediterranean and we can't. stop. watching. After we're done admiring Captain Sandy's management skills, we get into it about snacks! From Cheez-Its to cereal to the qualifications for a good dip vessel, we've got it all (plus grammar lessons, because we are who we are). BONUS: Keep an ear out for the moment we learn we both love oysters! It was a really big day for us.

This week, we're checking in from hiatus with a very special guest - the good and great Frank Ramblings from Beer With Geeks, Supergirl TV Talk, and more! We're here to bring you some quality field reporting on the summer reality TV landscape, a place that many of us love and many more of us fear. First up, Frank makes Kelsey watch Bachelor In Paradise, which includes a giant stuffed puppy murder and a truly impressive bird impression. Then, we're on to Making It - better known as The Great British Craft Off - because who isn't here for a delightful Pawnee reunion that involves felt? Thanks to Frank for coming by to hatewatch this week!

Nothing says content rut like forgetting what both of your segments were and deciding on them by accident. This week we're bringing back a good old fashion BYOB with Glam Masters and Skin Wars. We discuss weird reality TV tropes, compare elimination techniques, and gush about Great British Bake Off. Then we bring you a segment a week behind popular culture, and discuss our feelings about this year's Oscars. Specifically, why we didn't watch this year's Oscars and why we aren't more interested in movies in general. Kirstie and Kelsey go on a first date, we go down memory lane with some of our best childhood field trips, and we meet our Third Chair. It's a big, silly episode and we're not mad about it.
