Anglo-Filles Episode 65: Double-O Feature
Welcome to episode 65! Also known as the one in which Alina was sure she could find a great pun for the title, but then gave up and gave in to her stupidest impulse. The “double O” refers to the Olympics and the Oscars, two things that happened that we will dissect and discuss in this two-parter. We’ll talk about the Olympics first, the post-Oscar wrap-up begins at around 1 hour 5 minutes into the episode.

Anglo-Filles Episode 62: Potpourri-tangent-palooza 5
Welcome to episode 62, in which Les Filles discuss various topics, from recent news to a recent movie release. We also hear about Redheadedgirl’s pre-Edinburgh vacation experience (no lackluster tour guide shall go unroasted) and recommend our most recent TV/streaming discoveries. Mostly, we miss being together. Download Direct as an MP3 Subscribe in a Newsreader Subscribe in iTunes Listen on Stitcher The movie we’re talking about is Murder on the Orient Express with Kenneth Brannagh. Other versions include the 1974 with Albert Finney and the 2010 with David Suchet. Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma is on Crunchyroll and if you’re into cooking, battle anime, and a more literal (but PG-13) interpretation of “food porn”, then check it out. The Big Family Cooking Showdown is something to watch if you like The Great British Bake Off and Nadiya. If you’re outside the UK, it may be on Netflix. The Good Place is currently airing its second season, but the first may be available on your local streaming service. P.S. Alina’s headset has finally put her, itself, and you, dear listeners, out of its misery and broke for good. A new one is in the mail and hopefully brings better quality with it.

Anglo-Filles Episode 54: Riverdale (our childhoods may be a little bit dead)
Welcome to episode 54, in which we discuss CW’s newest teen drama: Riverdale. As an adaptation of the Archie comics, it may be a little… strange. But it has everything we’ve learned to expect from and love in a CW teen drama. We’ll also discuss our experiences and memories of the essential viewing entries in the TV teen drama canon. Let us know yours in the comments. Download Direct as an MP3 Subscribe in a Newsreader Subscribe in iTunes Listen on Stitcher Gossip Girl is, of course, the quintessential example of the Teen Drama genre. It stands on the shoulders of Beverly Hills 90210 and Dawson’s Creek. Canada offers the Degrassi franchise while in the UK there was Grange Hill and Skins. Reign is a historical (well, “historical”) twist on the formula, while Misfits, The 100, and Vampire Diaries add a speculative fiction layer. A time-stamp guide to the episode: the first 40 minutes are on Riverdale, the next 40 are on the other teen dramas, and the last 20 are an “epilogue” to last month’s, discussing our reactions to the big Oscars kerfuffle and strongly praising Logan. As promised, the scene from Being Human.
