On our latest weekly roundup, some of the men in our lives are dealing with excessive amounts of mulch (or bark, or wood chips; whatever the terminology, there is too much of it). What we're watching: In episode 6 of Ripley, "Some Heavy Instrument," the law starts to close in on Tom, in the form of Inspector Ravini, played wonderfully by Maurizio L…

On our latest weekly roundup, we are still trying to teach our kids about conveying urgency in their texts. What we're watching: We finished season 2 of Reservation Dogs with episodes 9 ("Offerings") and 10 ("I Still Believe"), two more opportunities to weep through our laughter and cheer on the Rez Dogs as they finally make it all the way to Calif…

On our latest weekly roundup, we start with a cautionary tale about baking your own bread: It could lead to an ER visit. What we're watching: On season 2 of Reservation Dogs, episodes 7 ("Stay Gold Cheesy Boy") and 8 ("This Is Where the Plot Thickens") could not have been more different. One focused on Cheese and his big heart, and the other on Big…

What we're watching: We continued with season 2 of Reservation Dogs with episodes 5 and 6: "Wide Net" and "Decolonativization." We learned a little more about the aunties as they headed to an out-of-town conferenc…

On our latest weekly roundup, Terri's making a Lenten sacrifice and exploring its technicalities. She may need to be more specific next year.

On our latest weekly roundup, we report on our preparedness (or lack thereof) for Valentine's Day. We love you, dear listeners! What we're watching: We finished season 1 of Reservation Dogs with episodes 7 and 8: "California Dreamin'" and "Satvrday." These were both heartbreaking in their own way. We're glad we can roll right on into season 2 and f…

What we're watching: We kicked off a new TV series this week, watching the first two episodes of season 1 of Reservation Dogs ("F*ckin' Rez Dogs" and "NDN Cinic"). We can already see that the rave reviews are justified. Mentioned: Primo and Rutherfor…

On our latest weekly roundup, please forgive Terri's squeaky, scratchy voice. She's not contagious through your podcast player. What we're watching: The movie The Holdovers, which is on an awards-season roll so far, was moving, affecting, and sad. We say you should grab a box of tissues and watch it. Catherine's library find this week is all about …

What we're watching: Instead of watching something together, we reported on what we consumed during our time off.

On our latest weekly roundup, some of our kids are moving back and forth from college, and one is moving down to the basement apartment... little by little.

On our latest weekly roundup, Catherine's stressing through finals week from a distance. What we're watching: On Dancing with the Stars, Xochitl Gomez took home the Len Goodman Mirrorball Trophy, so it's another win for the teens. Good for her, but a big fat BOO to the judges for not giving Alyson Hannigan a full set of courtesy 10s for her freesty…

On our latest weekly roundup, we have a happy update to Terri's dog-boarding dilemma. Cousin dog to the rescue! What we're watching: On Dancing with the Stars, we went from a (not so) shocking elimination to a kinda shocking non-elimination, as all five semi-finalists went through to the finale. Go, Alyson and Sasha! And Ariana and Pasha! And Jason…

On our latest weekly roundup, Catherine reported on her recent Airbnb stay, which didn't sway Terri at all from her "not for me" position. What we're watching: On Dancing with the Stars, it was Taylor Swift Night and, at long last, the exit of Harry Jowsey. Mentioned: A report that Harry asked to leave in place of Lele Pons, and a theory that Swift…

On our latest weekly roundup, we started with an update from Terri on her broken wrist and how her recovery is progressing. She still does not recommend breaking a bone. What we're watching: On Dancing with the Stars, it was Whitney Houston Night and Barry Williams danced his last, after a good long run. Kudos to you, Greg Brady! On The Gilded Age,…

On our latest weekly roundup, we started by learning about the specialized profession of library moving, and Terri came up with an idea for a new TV show.

What we're watching: As always, Dancing with the Stars went all in for Halloween with "Monster Night," with the costuming, hair, and makeup departments working even more overtime than usual (but we still th…
  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, Catherine is sorely tempted by some very cute kittens (it's easy because they live 2,000 miles away). Mentioned: Heidi Wrangles Cats on Instagram. What we're watching: It was time for that Dancing with the Stars staple, "My Most Memorable Year." As always, that meant lots of emotional, barefoot contemporary dances (and…

On our latest weekly roundup, Terri shares some decluttering success stories, including finding a loving home for her vintage record albums.

On our latest weekly roundup, we are once again grateful that we don't have to deal with all the logistics surrounding high school events (even though we have a front-row seat to some of them). What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building's "Thirty" (episode 9), the trio started to close in on Ben's killer (killers?). We were quite proud of…
  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, we checked out a celebrity charity auction on eBay. Proceeds are going to support striking actors and writers, but we think the potential for awkwardness is rather high. What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "Sitzprobe" (episode 8), set at a rehearsal for Oliver's musical, was fittingly filled with dram…
  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, we celebrated some decluttering triumphs (even as we know this is a job that never ends). What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "CoBro" did bring us some more details that we should probably use to figure out what happened to Ben. But we were more excited by the return of some old favorites (Theo! Uma!)…

On our latest weekly roundup, we don't have any kids in public school anymore, but we can still complain about back-to-school issues like traffic and loud robot voices. What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "Ghost Light" was entertaining but entirely expendable; we're no closer to knowing whodunit. On The Afterparty, we do now know …
  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, we have questions about when to notice someone else's hairstyle, and what to do when someone notices yours. What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "Ah, Love!" upended two relationships and (maybe) kicked off a third, while (maybe) exonerating one suspect and lining the next one up. On The Afterparty, "Is…

On our latest weekly roundup, we have a special guest star. Nicole is back for a cameo appearance! What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "The White Room" was not about expensive Manhattan real estate, but about stage fright (and there was a catchy song). On The Afterparty, "Feng" brought some surprising subtlety from Ken Jeong, even…
  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, we check in on a couple of milestones: losing a landline and gaining a new capacity for passive-aggressive commentary.

  continue reading
 
On our latest weekly roundup, we check in on social events, with kids and without; at this point, sharing a fast-food lunch with a friend is a special treat. What we're watching: Only Murders in the Building is back! Season 3 started with a fake-out death and then a real murder that was, conveniently, in the building. We're looking forward to follo…

On our latest weekly roundup, we check in with our furry family members. Terri's dog is making friends, and Catherine's are making enemies. What we're watching: On The Afterparty, this week's episode, "Sebastian," was a heist caper, complete with double-crosses, switcheroos, and high-stakes Connect 4 games. On Brothers & Sisters, "Prior Commitments…

On our latest weekly roundup, we start with the unavoidable cultural onslaught that is Barbie, the movie (which allowed us to reminisce about the Barbies of our youth). Mentioned: One of Greta Gerwig's previous movies, Lady Bird, which we discussed back in 2018. What we're watching: We continue with The Afterparty's "Hannah," a pitch-perfect take o…

On Parenting Roundabout's weekly roundup this week, we chat about the generational divide when it comes to laptop stickers (Terri's sticking with Gelaskins, but Catherine's pondering some individual stickers, like a young person). What we're watching: We continue with The Afterparty's "Travis," a film noir from the POV of Grace's ex, hat-wearing Tr…

Nicole is leaving us (sob!), so this week she is sharing some of her favorite episodes from our years (and years, and years!) of podcasting together.

We're united in ou…

Nicole is leaving us (sob!), so this week she is sharing some of her favorite episodes from our years (and years, and years!) of podcasting together. Today's farewell memory comes from January 8, 2018; we've piled on a lot more episodes since then. We reflect on our 200 podcast episodes to date. My, how we've changed, and grown, and spent a whooool…

Nicole is leaving us (sob!), so this week she is sharing some of her favorite episodes from our years (and years, and years!) of podcasting together. Today's farewell memory comes from June 13, 2022. Nicole's dog, Missy, passed away recently. Since she's been a presence on the podcast over the years, today's episode is all about Missy and her explo…

On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, we followed Sally Field from Pasadena to Boston and watched the movie 80 for Brady (also starring Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Lily Tomlin). It's pure cameo-filled fantasy, but also a lot of fun. As usual, Brothers and Sisters was less fun, but both Sarah and Kevin did seem to get a win so we'll take it.…
