We’re back! Apologies for the lack of podcast two weeks ago—audio issues meant we weren’t able to bring you our Tony Awards episode Luckily we’ve captured the spirit in this Tony Awards Chat. On to this week’s topics! With Game of Thrones and Veep both ending their seasons, we thought it was a great time to talk about these HBO shows.
Ahh, baseball. With one of the longest seasons and the highest number of professional games per season, it truly is one of the dullest sports we have. If you find yourself dating/married to/befriending a person who loves baseball, you are in for a bit of a dull ride. But I truly believe that there are […]
There are so many reasons to be upset about the loss of Marvel’s Agent Carter. Maybe you really liked the way the show handled its characters’ post-war trauma and wanted to see where that would go. Maybe you were captivated by the budding romance between Peggy and that-guy-who-isn’t-Captain-America. Or maybe you appreciated the lessons on […]
This week’s episode of The Pop Cult Podcast was going to be all about the best damn awards show there is—The Tony Awards. Due to some technical difficulties, however, we unfortunately don’t have a new episode to share our opinions with you. Instead, here are just some of our thoughts on this year’s Tonys. Jeffrey […]
Classic musicals are pretty damn great. The music is moving, the lyrics are sharp, the dancing is impressive, and the costumes are swoon-worthy. Theatre is built on tradition and many (most?) of the great stories told there are retellings and adaptations of very old stories. This traditionalism adds a heaping dose of nostalgia to the […]
This week marks the release of the 17th animated feature film from Pixar: Finding Dory. I am an unabashed Pixar fan, and while I tend to enjoy their original movies more than their sequels (don’t worry, I’m not talking about you Toy Story 3), I’ll admit to still having very high hopes for this one.
This Sunday is the 70th annual Tony Awards and we couldn’t be more excited. The Tonys are often described as the most entertaining awards show to watch. The Oscars have their pomp and prestige and it’s always fun seeing actors get drunk at the Golden Globes but there’s really nothing like watching trained theatrical performers […]
This episode we dive right into the summer reality TV show So You Think You Can Dance as it heads into its 12th season with a twist: the contestants are all kids this time. SYTYCD (as it is cumbersomely named) is a unique corner of reality television that has managed to bring awareness around the art […]
You may remember that I made Jane the Virgin my Kool-Aid Pick on a recent episode of our podcast, and hoo boy, I’m in deep now. Much like Rogelio, I’m ultimately #TeamJane, and I’m excited to share my excitement with you all in this telenovela-fueled Jane the Virgin Edition of our Friday Link Roundup. Noted […]
Today, television producers, writers, and creators have an unprecedented amount of access to the opinions of the people that watch their shows. For better or worse we live in a time where creative executives have access to the critical lemons being thrown at them by their audience on a mass scale. There are lots of […]
