Episode 25 - My Fellow Citizens and Her Private Life
Episode 25 - we continue with My Fellow Citizens and share a common complaint about the series and we're picking up Her Private Life, which was unexpected.

Jane wrapped up Sky Castle and clearly no longer cares that Mel won't watch Running Man as she talks about it anyway! In personal news, Jane fell while walking and is looking for pity on the show (it's okay, she's fine now). Aiming for our next 25!

Episode 22 - this really is our last look at The Last Empress as our guest, John, comes back for a final analysis!

Episode 21 - Cuteness overload fills the gap of the Last Empress
The mamas bid goodbye to our Empress but happy to report that any void left by The Last Empress is filled by the cuteness overload in Touch Your Heart.

It's an introductory episode - Jane's fishing for topics for future hijackings - dedicate an episode to favorite cast members? Special guests? Storylines? LOVELINES? Come listen and have your say!

Episode 17 - What are we doing here?... and The Last Empress
Episode 17 - we carry on with The Last Empress and it's all sorts of crazy!
