Everyone's favorite Tuesday-Adjacent podcast is back to get a little meta as we talk about podcasts becoming tv shows and tv shows about podcasts trying to become podcasts companies......or something. We start with the new Zack Braff show Alex Inc., where we struggle with our feelings about Zack Braff, teenage magicians, family comedies, and 401Ks. Get the sco op on the upcoming Hatewatch With Us adaptation including episode synopses, the dream cast, and other hot details. Then we move on to discussing the idea of adapting podcasts into television. We ponder deep questions like which podcasts are television worthy, what podcasts would we hate to watch, and play our favorite game Listen to Kirstie and Kelsey Google. Our main take away was Zack Braff isn't great, ABC needs to stay in their lane, and Roman Mars and Kevin McCloud should face off in a competitive reality show. Send in your pitch package for the Hatewatch With Us TV Adaptation! Best one gets pitched to Hulu.

The good news about this episode is that the Outlander Omnibus is back! The bad news? We promise you two segments but only deliver on one! We promise, it’s actually kind of worth it. We’ll force our feelings upon you, talk about memorable moments and crying at TV, and shout our favorite catchphrase a whole bunch. If we failed to mention your favorite thing about Outlander, tell us at @hatewatchwithus!

This week we bring you a gift of pure delight. Two shows full of field trips, lessons learned, and throwbacks to other classic hatewatches. We call this, "Cottage Life, UK". First, we bring you Mary Portus, Secret Shopper, where we visit a bridal shop and eat some coleslaw sandwiches. Kelsey finds out trains exist, Mary Portus' origin story is revealed, Kirstie learns vocabulary and we find ourselves trying to navigate some messily told character stories. Then we transition to Weekend Aristocrats, a show about rich white men and their endless fear of plebs. Kelsey gets to relive the show vicariously through this episode, from peacocks to divorces. Come for the Halloween, stay for the tough conversations about socioeconomic inequality and generational aristocracy.

Something strange happened with this episode, as if it fell through the stones at Cragh na dun and got lost for a few days before finding its way back to these, our modern times. Or at least that’s the story we’re going with to explain why this episode is late. This time on the Outlander Omnibus, we’re talking MEN, specifically men we want to bone, more specifically, Jamie. We spend some time objectifying everybody’s favorite fantasy husband, then we expand to discuss the rest of Outlander’s men. Kirstie has some latent feelings about turtlenecks again, and we wrap it all up with the legendary Hatewatch segment, listen to us Google a thing. JE SUIS PREST!

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.
