Everything is fine this week as we roll the dice and stay up way past our knitting curfew to give Kelsey a space to yell about all the reasons she was right about Schitt's Creek. It's an act of gate keeping, friendship, self restraint and shitty railroads. We get hype about characters, place, romcoms, sitcoms, Canada, and the Gay Agenda. If you listen to our show because we hate stuff, this is not the episode for you. If you listen to our show and think, "man I wish you liked stuff sometimes?", then this is for you. Come for the salty salts, stay for the shiny clean grand romantic gestures.

It's a romcomducation bonus episode! We're here to discuss the 2007 rom-com Music & Lyrics, starring our problematic fave, Hugh Grant. Mostly we just want to talk about how all we want to do is find a way back into loveeeeeee. Then we're jumping to some more timely, topical content and sharing our thoughts on Someone Great, a new Netflix original movie that was fine. As reporters in the target demo field, we discuss hangovers when you're 29, millennial home decor, and career depictions. We also snuck in some exciting previews for Hallmark Channel movies AND some choices Lifetime is making, so stay tuned for more there.

It's a real grab bag of hatewatch nostalgia this week! Fate leads us to revisit Kirstie's "favorite romcom of all time," Sweet Home Alabama, and we have some thoughts about low rise flare jeans and jokes that make us uncomfortable in 2019. After a brief discussion about novelty Instagram belts we have a chat about the living rooms of sitcoms, because nobody likes a high end finish like Hatewatch With Us. Come for True American, the safety version, stay for... a teaser of our new side project? Stay tuned for more details coming soon!

If you're here for a hatewatch, we're offering ourselves up as tributes this week. You get to Hatewatch Kelsey's Joy and Hatewatch Kirstie's Feels in this double header as Kelsey BYOBs the new romantic comedy The Big Sick and we FINALLY get to discuss Jane the Virgin in all its glory (including season 3 spoilers, you've been warned). TL:DR, we really like these things and we just really really want you to like them too. In return, we give you gifts such as Kelsey reenacting movies, a primer of Kirstie's complicated relationship with Ray Romano, digs at House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Confederate and the RomCom badlands, and Kirstie getting lost in time and space. Find us on Twitter, because if the episode run time doesn't make it clear, we really want to talk to you about these stories more.

There's a show coming back to television on some network and we think we've maybe seen it before or it's important or something, so we're previewing it for you. Game of Thrones? Does that sound familiar? We're not sure. We don't know where we are in time or space, much like the Game of Thrones writer's room. We attempt to reorient ourselves to Westeros, make some wild speculations about the season to come, and preview for you what we will be doing to survive this season. Next, we have the finale of our 5 episode series on RomComducation. Kirstie waxes poetic about how far we've all come and Kelsey guides us through closing the loop on this long saga. We should all take a moment to praise her sage wisdom and all the gifts she has to offer. Let us know if we missed anything along this journey!

Welcome back, listening friends! It took us a couple of days to work off that Vacation hangover, but we are back at it! This week we are continuing our segment on RomComs with Part 4: RomComs for These, Our Modern Times and Bromantic Comedies. We talk body humor, buddy plots, and take turns telling lots of fun stories from our younger years including major relationship milestones and silly friendship moments. Log it away for Hatewatch Trivia some day. Then because summer is upon us, we wanted to equip you for the People Watching Spectacular that is Summer Beer Festivals. We've got tropes, archetypes, personalities, and the infinite trauma of gender normativity. Feel free to pass along your beer recommendations, we're going to need all the help we can get.

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!
