Together, they chat about the power of live music (And, of course, The Eras Tour), the differing cultural impacts of The Voice and American Idol, and why it’s so important to label who everyone is in a documentary.

Lauren and Nicole have finally reached their final film of this epic Batman journey: Andrés Muschietti’s The Flash (2023)!

Joined by special guests Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, King of Queens) and Pete Holmes (Crashing, The Pete Holmes Show), Lauren and Nicole weave their way through the complicated multi-verses of the DC world while also taking time to wonder about The Flash’s snack intake, time travel, and how much in life is effected by a can of tomatoes.

Along the way, they discuss the hilarity of eating an entire Lobster Thermidor alone, the Dickens-esque morality journey Batman goes on this time around, and, of course, the power of friendship.

This week, Lauren and Nicole dive into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Edition, which has approximately 30 more minutes of action-packed Ben-Affleck-as-Batman heroism to dissect than the non-ultimate edition! Extra special guest Scott Aukerman (Mr. Show, Between Two Ferns, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Threedom) provides beyond helpful background knowledge on the commonalities between Superman and Batman’s mothers, Jesse Eisenberg’s probable acting inspiration for Lex Luther, and why Superman is so hot.

Lauren and Nicole enter the Christopher Nolan Batman-verse with very special guest Mary Holland (Self-Reliance, Happiest Season, Harley Quinn) covering 2005’s Batman Begins with Christian Bale. Fun! Together, they weave their way through knowing (and then not knowing, and then knowing again) who Ra’s al Ghul really is, give ample praise for Dawson’s Creek legend Katie Holmes, and feel comfortable enough to make a shocking confession (this is their first time watching a Nolan film...ever!).

Lauren and Nicole’s trip through the Batman universe takes an interesting turn with very special guest Matt Gourley (Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, Superego, I Was There Too, With Gourley and Rust, Bonanas For Bonanza) covering 1997’s Batman & Robin with George Clooney. Is this really one of the “worst movies ever made”... or actually one of the all-time greats? Is the hyper-focus on Batman’s nipples an expression of artistic vision or does it miss the point? Are we sure Batman and Robin are not a couple?

it's so weird to hear a different take. I thought this movie had too many jokes (Kat Denning was the only good comic relief). I read the comics as a kid and Thor was a very serious dramatic comic, with hardly any jokes at all. But that's how I like my superhero movies, too many jokes make it more like a parody). I love the podcast by the way. I guess your different takes is exactly what we want 😄

This show always cracks me up. I love the part when Brennan is talking about tables you use to roll for things like weather. Lauren and Nicole are asking if there is literaly a physical separate card table the dm pulls out (DJs!) and Brennan thinks they're asking something much deeper and less tangible and goes into a long detailed explanation about the finer points of the game in a totally different direction. Their question is never answered.

I'm not sure if they were just trying to be comedic or what but I feel like these two ladies we're not into this movie from the very beginning. they could have at least tried to give it a chance.
