Description

Sometimes we miss things. Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus have been putting themselves through it, catching up on the series that, up until now, they haven't found the time for. In Season 1, Nicole and Lauren got a crash course in Star Wars. Season 2, they toiled their way through The Lord of the Rings. Now, they're on to Tyler Perry's movies, TV shows, and maybe (just maybe) his plays. Join Nicole and Lauren as they get to know the ins and outs of his iconic body of work.

so, now you know how it feels when we are forced to watch rom-coms. LOL. traumatic, dramatic emotional movies , it has the same effect as this movie had on you. but, I'm on board. This is so funny.

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.

As a Star Wars and LotR fan I really enjoy this (even if Lauren and Nicole clearly don't).

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.

i don't see why the podcast is still going at this point. They can't even bothered to watch the material they are covering anymore. I've never seen a starwar myself, I only listen for the hosts, and they sound so over it that i am too.

Awesome show, thank you for doing this. I think you guys would really love to see how the fight between Darth Vader and Obi Wan should have gone. I am obsessed with this video. I hope to hear what you think. https://youtu.be/to2SMng4u1k

I like Lauren and Nicole. I do. I don't know if this podcast is going to work, though. I get the premise, but it's going to be tough making an entertaining podcast out of being alternatively dismissive or proudly ignorant of something a pretty decent majority of the people who are listening enjoy. It's obviously completely fine to feel however anyone feels about any cultural touchstone... it's just a bit of a rough go for the people who feel generally positively about it to have a podcast whose unavoidable subtext is "This is stupid and a waste of our time".
