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.

This week we are two hosts who are feeling confident about what we have prepared for you: two shows that have names, a show that gives us feelings and a show that doesn't, and a rundown of the ways our heros have failed us. We watched Jane the Virgin and the new Mike Schur show Abby's. We've got an episode of our Everwood Podcast Within the Podcast, a lot to say about narrative stakes, and some broad and varied hot takes on television pilots.
Jane the Virgin spoilers end around 37-38 minutes.
Don't forget to subscribe to our new podcast, Our Watch Has Ended, for all of your Game of Thrones content!

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!

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.

This week we are taking you through the hole in the fabric of space-time, back 5 weeks to our first attempt at returning from hiatus. It was a simpler time when Kirstie was getting a lot less sleep and watching a lot more TV, and Kelsey was living her best RomCom life. First we discussed all the TV Kirstie watched on maternity leave, including the gringiness of 90s sitcoms, the argument for the 30 minute sitcom as a format, and Kirstie admitting she was right to lose the great Brooklyn 99 Fight of 2018. Then we have a rare opportunity to put a positive spin on everyone's favorite segment, Netflix, What Have You Done? With a pep in our step and sheer delight in our mics, we review the Netflix RomCom To All The Boys I loved Before, as well as praising the platform for their contributions to the RomCom Renaissance. For the second week in a row, we're glad to be back!

Back when we recorded this, we were so relevant and ready for our cultural moment. But then the internet betrayed us and thus we were lost to time much like the two time-warping topics we have for you this week. First, we talk about the new season of Arrested Development, our feelings about mid-2000s political satire, and we put all the men in rice. Then, we take a deep dive into the highly anticipated new romcom, Little Italy, staring Emma Roberts and notorious Anti-Sand advocate Hayden Christensen. We write some off-season Hallmark fanfiction, explore Hayden Christensen's biography and escape to the farm.

The theme of this episode is Netflix, What Have You Done? But it also could have been Soda, What Have You Done? Sweet Tea, What Have You Done? IMDB Pro, What Have You Done? We BYOB two Netflix originals. Kelsey watched the Netflix Original RomCom When We First Met and her algorithms will never be the same. We learn about IMDB and all the different ways you can tag panties. Then, Kirstie reveals a shocking plot twist: Netflix, What Have You Done can have positive connotations! We discuss the Series of Unfortunate Events, Kirstie's unbridled joy over television adaptations and dark stories for children. It's a bumpy episode for Netflix, Kirstie's knowledge of actor's names, movies of the mid 2000s and our understanding of the fundamental question, Netflix, What Have You Done?

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!
