Nathan, Beware: Our Review, ”Insecure” S5 episode 4

November 17, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 4 of "Insecure", season 5.

Our takes... Black folks are Spades' racists; this is not how sunscreen works; Kofi Siriboe is too fine so of course his characters are problematic; we reminisce on when we were spontaneous youths and Atlanta never closed (club Kaya and 112); Issa should’ve “8 Mile’d” Crenshawn; and we believe Issa is gonna ruin poor, fragile Nathan.

Two Idiots & A Baby: Our Review, ”Insecure” S5 episode 3

Two Idiots & A Baby: Our Review, ”Insecure” S5 episode 3

November 10, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 3 of "Insecure", season 5.

Our takes (and we preference this with Mel had been drinking-drinking this episode)...
Mel was so stressed out and had questions for the married couples of the ’cast; Mel explains “fluid-bonded”; we feel Lawrence is a f’boy masquerading as a “nice guy”; lack of communication and no plan is a set up for failure; Lawrence with the weird romantic “Omega Psi Phi” nursery set up; and Peppa and Pepper Pig have messed up a generation of kids.

Breaking the Big A*s Chains of Stagnation: Our Review, ”Insecure” S5 episode 2

November 3, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 2 of "Insecure", season 5.

Our takes... We love Molly’s new 'do; we had ideas about how Molly/Issa's reconciliation and COVID could've been cover; we want Quoia to have her own show; Mel thinks Kofi is “Baby you ain’t gotta work no more” FINE; also you can’t be so specific on your dating profile; and Issa should’ve called Crenshawn instead of Nathan.

 
Also, last but certainly not least, #RIP to the special Jovita Moore. You will be missed.

Give Kelli Her Flowers! Our Review of episode 1 of the final season of ”Insecure” :(

October 26, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 1, "Insecure" season 5.

Our takes... This “AKA on Amanda” violence is tew much; have more in your obituary than “had a good Stanky Leg”; Kim hates Molly; Mel says the universe doesn’t want Issa and Lawrence together; and Mimi jokingly suggests that one should have babies when they’re either really young or damn near too old — no in-between.

New Suit, Who Dis? Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep.6

April 29, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 6, the finale of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" on Disney+.

Our takes... sort of an anti-climatic ending with a typical Disney ending; Karli makes bad decisions as a villain; MiMi & Mel absolutely HATE Falcon/Cap's new "Gordon Gartrelle" knockoff super hero suit.

We also show our love for the hip-hop greats we lost recently.

A New ‘Uncle Sam’: Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep.5

April 22, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 5 of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" on Disney+ before tomorrow's finale.

We also give our thoughts after the episode on the Derek Chauvin verdict which came in two hours before our recording.

Our takes... good episode but not the emotional “Hold The Door” toll we thought was coming; Karli is mad because she didn’t finish her twist out; Zemo is a good villain; what does "country" mean to Black American DOS; Bucky to Falcon’s sister “Hi my name is Bucky and I’m a Cancer”; John Walker desperately makes paper machete shield in his craft class; Mel stalks Ikea workers.

Disney Goes There: “Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep.4

Disney Goes There: “Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep.4

April 15, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 4 of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" on Disney+ before tomorrow's — possibly emotional — new episode drop.

(Scene-by-scene breakdown starts at 21:00)
An episode must be good if it has us beginning the discussion for 20 minutes on the themes included and how they parallel current events.

Our takes... Palestine/Israel conflict, Native American and African American experiences mirror the Flag Smashers; MiMi would take the serum and go straight to Mar-a-Lago; new Captain America thinks he has jurisdiction all over the world… sounds familiar; Ayo put in that Contra code on Bucky’s arm; the Dora Milaje is how incels are made; the hillman college approach to voter suppression; is the new Captain America as bad as Homelander?

“LaTavia” and Destiny’s Confusion: Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep. 3

April 8, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 3 of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" on Disney+ before tomorrow's new episode drop.

Our takes... we didn’t sign up for "Disney John Wick"; only thing MiMi understood was Krog Street Tunnel; Maya Rudolph Jr. is gangsta; MiMi only understands the episode in terms of Beyonce beefs; Marcus gives breakdown on Zemo and other characters that may be confusing. 

We also wonder where "Black Panther" goes from here without Chadwick and we couldn't leave without giving our thoughts on one Ron "Zaddy" Isley.

Same ‘Merikkka (Even in Marvel): Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep. 2

Same ‘Merikkka (Even in Marvel): Our Review of “The Falcon & the Winter Soldier” ep. 2

April 1, 2021

In today's show, we review episode 2 of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" on Disney+ before tomorrow's new episode drop.

We begin today's podcast briefly speaking on anxiety and quickly touching on the new Tina Turner documentary, which is AMAZING, before we get into the Marvel review.

Our takes... Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have great chemistry; everyone can’t be a majorette; Mel has a weird affection for inanimate Marvel objects; “Maya Rudolph’s” daughter was wrecking dreams; plot twist, it's was the white man who had all the warrants; no one has had a lit onscreen death since Queen Latifah in “Set it Off”.

Plus, here's the link for the backstory on Isaiah Bradley — the forgotten Black Captain America.  https://www.marvel.com/comics/series/2577/truth_red_white_and_black_2003
