About This Show
We are Merri and Missy, two girls who love talking about the things they love both as fans and as critics. We love comics, video games, movies, books, and everything from The Avengers to Zelda. Merri is a communications major with a special interest in gender, women's studies, and Sailor Moon. Missy is an English major and Hermione Granger trivia champ.

< 1 day ago
Welcome to episode 64, in which we fundamentally destroy all humor by examining it and explaining every joke. Except Jim Carrey's teeth, which remain an enigma and a horror to all.Mistakes: Missy didn't revisit A Modest Proposal before recording, and mistakenly said it's about solving world hunger. It's actually about classism—Jonathon Swift (satirically) suggests that poor Irish parents sell their children to wealthy people as food.What Missy's Been Up To:
Watching:Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Reading:You Should've Asked by Emma (the comic about housework and emotional/mental labor)

I love these girls!
I am a trans female. I love hearing FakeGeekGirls and hearing about new LGBTQQIA+ comics/shows, and I am still learning about representation of all minorities. I am especially loving these recent Sailor Moon reviews. My favorite Anime/Manga. <3
