A few months have passed since our last show and we know the question on everyone's mind - what did Kat and Shomari spend their summer watching? Check out this new episode, where we count down our five favorite movies & series, to find out. Plus, what show does Shomari call "early 1900s Mean Girls" and will someone please send Katherine a Rachel Bloom bobblehead so Spidey isn't all alone on top of the monitor? Welcome back Rovers!
Five episodes ago, Shomari was decidedly NOT on board with the trippy world of Twin Peaks. Has anything changed with the passing of a few weeks in which he finished Season 1?

Whew. Within the first 15 minutes of this one, Kat loses all credibility with the superhero crowd, neither of us can figure out basic New York geography, and we misplace Ben Urich on the wrong 90s medical drama (it was Chicago Hope, not ER, ya dummies!) But you know, everyone has days where they mysteriously end up with lettuce in their hair.

Sure, we're all in the Julianna Margulies's Arms Appreciation Club, but there are a few important questions - mainly, is Will smoking hot or not - that Katherine and Shomari just can't seem to agree on when discussing "The Good Wife". That, plus we confuse David Spade & James Spader to disastrous results, Shomari makes a plea for another superhero dressed in red, and the return of the Mandy Patinkin stinger. Tweet us, share us and review us on Itunes! 00:00 - 5:56 Intro 5:56 - 33:41 "The Good Wife" throwdown 33:41 - 45:00 Shomari assigns Kat "Daredevil" 45:00 - end We love "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" Kat's "Daredevil" homework - S1 Ep 1, S1 Ep 2, S2 Ep 1 - all available to stream on Netflix
Mean girls and V-necks and shipping, oh my! We're out of the "spooky small towns" fire & into the "big city troubles" frying pan in this week's new episode. And we promise that no one's blackmailing us via threatening but not very creative texts. Listen to find out who "the darkest timeline Rob Lowe" is plus what Shomari and Ron Swanson have in common(hint, it involves cured pork) However you listen, subscribe so you never miss an episode & like and review us so we know to keep making them! 0 - 3:52 Intro 3:52 - 25:42 Pretty Little Liars 25:42 - 38:17 Kat assigns Shomari his "The Good Wife" homework 38:17 - end Happy endings Shomari's homework for next week: The Good Wife (available for streaming on Hulu) Season 1 Ep 1 "Pilot," Season 1 Ep 22 "Hybristophilia." and Season 2 Ep 23 "Closing Arguments"
Things get heated as we begin to wrap up the apparently contentious topic of scary.....I mean... strange small towns. The coffee might be damn good in Twin Peaks, but "I never felt anything for these characters" - SOMEONE says about "Shaggy Jimmy", "Laura...something" and "Younger Waitress". So basically if you love the idea of hearing Katherine's heart crushed over and over and with great enthusiasm, this is the episode for you. We also introduce a new segment - Red Rover Treats - to talk about some current pop culture obsessions. This batch includes Into the Badlands, Fargo & many more. And if you like us, like us on Facebook, Itunes, Stitcher etc(pretty please with a piece of cherry pie on top)

When Kat and Shomari get down to an extended discussion of Battlestar Galactica, it's less "So Say We All" and more "So Say You, but You're Extremely Wrong and Here's Why" Check out our take on the cult of Gaius, Lee's fat suit and yes THAT series finale above. Includes spoilers for the entire show, duh. We'll be back with our usual Red Rover tricks next Wednesday - till then, like us, review us and leave us lots of comments!
