The One With The Man: An Outlander Music Bracket

Outlander returns to Starz this Friday, 6/16 and thus we return to your feeds from our similarly haphazard and only vaguely explicable hiatus. Now we know you all have heard our feelings about Outlander since we basically haven't published any other shows since the last season, so we decided we'd switch it up this time and once again attempt to teach Kirstie how brackets work to determine the best Outlander Theme Song. We've got greatest hits such as Scotland (Penny Whistle's Version), The One With The Man, and many others. Join us for a surprise plot twist that no one but Kelsey (and anyone who saw the seeds for the bracket) saw coming, and find out which Outlander Theme Song is the One True Theme song.

Outlander Season 6 Review

We're back to shout about one of our favorite things to shout about: Outlander! We're sharing the things we loved, hated, and loved to hate about Outlander Season 6 (MARK ME, we loved more things than we hated?). From the season that brought us such metaphors as THE-STORM-THE-WAR, we were also given gifts like the Benjamin Moore Outlander collection, throuple plots, justice for Fergus, and Matthew B Roberts' PR exit. Did we need season 6? No. Are were here now? Yes. So pour yourself a giant G&T and enjoy recapping with us!

Outlander: Here We Go Again! (Season 6 Preview + Premiere)

Outlander Season 6 is finally here! Join us for our preview of the season, a little time travel, and our thoughts on the season premiere. While we can count the never-ending cold open among the things we lost in France, we've got some positives in there too, like Emmy-worthy crazy eyes acting and what promises to be our drinking game this season, sniffing out the essence of Tequila Sam wherever we can (10/10 would purchase that fragrance???). Anyway, we're happy to be back on the Ridge, even if there's glass in the windows.

Nine Kittens of Christmas and Next Stop Christmas

It's the most Hatewatchable Time of the Year - Hatewatch Christmas 2021 is well underway and this week we are coming in hot with two entries from Hallmark full of time travel, cats, and infrastructure galore. First it's the Nine Kittens of Christmas, a movie where not much happens except a venue for our annual debate about the merits of Hallmark fucking. Next is Next Stop Christmas, and folks Hallmark had no right making this film just for us. If you like trains, time travel, and dunking on New England this has got it all.

Second Act (Dad Month)

Much like Jennifer Lopez arriving in her corporate apartment after a plot twist in her journey to become a manager without a college degree, we are smashing expectations by extending Dad Month two months later than originally scheduled and arriving at the start of the Hatewatch Holiday season with a surprising touch of the holiday spirit. As Treat Dad once famously said in this film, "that was some crazy shit!". We promised you a Mom entry into Dad Month and that will still be coming but likely in January, so stay tuned because, much like adopted mothers and daughters being reunited inexplicably in the middle of a romcom, more crazy shit is yet to come!

Billboard Dad (Dad Month)

When we said Dad Month did you expect it to take us a month to release a new Dad episode? Same! Anyway, we're here today to discuss Billboard Dad, Tom Amande's inexplicable suave, the bizarre investment of the Venice, CA Bureau of Commerce, bedrooms decorated like coral reefs, and teenage swim instructors who have too much interest in their diving team. Stay tuned for the next installment of Dad Month because somehow it's going to be even more buck wild?

Jeff Bezos' Cinderella (feat. Pierce Dad)

IT'S DAD MONTH, Y'ALL! We're kicking things off with a listener request featuring our very good dad Pierce once again just absolutely thriving in the campiest dad roles of our generation. And while we can't agree that anyone was clamoring for Jeff Bezos' Cinderella, we ARE clamoring for Pierce Dad's Oscar for this role. We've got lots of thoughts about what injustice Bezos has inflicted on us this time, like using his space technology to create CGI mice, subjecting us to an hours-long montage to Let's Get Loud, and letting James Corden do dick jokes. After we spend roughly an hour questioning WHO IS THIS FOR? we have some fun new segments like creating Mamma Mia board games, the Sam Heughan James Bond Google Alerts Temperature Check™️, and forgetting to tell you about Dad Month until the last minute of the show. Stay tuned for the next installment of Dad Month: Billboard Dad!

We will not be silent or silenced on our thoughts about this film, the cosumting, or the bronzer crimes.

Both Miracle Workers and Ted Lasso are back, and somehow this epode was recorded before EITHER SHOW's big 3rd/4th episode but trust that we're ready to talk about it. Enjoy 45 minutes of pure delight about two delightful shows. We're happy about Roy Ken's facial hair and DanRad's child star money and infinite professional bliss.

Never Have I Ever Season 2

We're back and here to talk about many things, but mainly how unreasonably hot Paxton Hall-Yoshida is! That's right, it's the Golden Month of Television and we're kicking things off with season two of Never Have I Ever, a Hatewatch Our Joy mainstay that generates an equal ratio of tears to google searches about male characters' heights. Please enjoy our raw, unedited, earnest feelings about this show and what we owe to Mindy Kaling and also what we absolutely do not owe to our two-star reviewer (no, we're not over it). If you missed us, be sure to check out the Everwood Pinecast (, where we've been busy recapping season one of the hit WB series Everwood (which Never Have I Ever may have stolen IP from, who's to say???).

SAS: Red Notice (Our Month on the Rails)

Grab your tobbogans and your gas masks folks because we're boarding a train to a whole new world of trains and infrastructure. The good news, we've found the intersection of our brand containing both Trains and Sam Heughan, the bad news, it's Action Hallmark. It's always Christmas, the good guy always wins, and there's always bombs on trains. We are heart broken to be winding down Our Month on the Rails, but we are so grateful you joined us all for the ride.

Coastal Railways with Julie Walters (Our Month on the Rails)

This is it, after a long month winding through the country side, we have climbed the mountain and reached the absolute pinnacle of our life on the rails, where we found Coastal Railways with Julie Walters. We've seen a lot trains and a lot of countryside but we have never seen anything as joyful as Julie Walters riding the train. We're smoking some fish, touring some trailers, eating some lobsters, and learning a lot about victorian train ettiquette.

We're joining our friend Dick Strawbridge in the journey to Fucking Inverness this week on The Biggest Little Railway in the World. Come for the model trains, stay for the friendship. At the intersection of our inexplicable brand you'll find Scotland, Nice People, Dick Strawbridge, british people, infrastructure, Love Productions and (checks notes) Hamm Analysis????

What A Girl Wants

Hop on board the nostalgia train yet again because we found another excuse to hang out with our dad Colin Firth! This week we're exploring another classic piece of teen girl culture that Kirstie missed in the early aughts, What A Girl Wants. This film is jam packed with flare jeans, hijinks, and Colin Firth dancing in leather pants. We explore some latent feelings about Vespas, wonder what the writers knew about the House of Windsor, and are compelled to say this movie is Not That Bad?

HGTV Design Star Next Generation

We're coming to you late but once you see how much content we crammed into this episode you'll understand why. This week we thought we were bringing you an episode about the reboot of the early aught's classic, HGTV Design Star, but really what we ended up bringing you was almost 90 minutes of our white hot fury. We joked before recording that we'd have the show's run time of complaints, and we concluded that one can be petty and kind, and we hope we were able to strike the balance while still approaching the content with the level of curiosity demanded by Ted Lasso (spoiler alert: it was challenging).

Cinderella (1997)

Join us for an adventure in 90's tv musical production as we unpack the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein Cinderella (you know the one, with Brandy, Whitney Houston, and great ubiquitous character actor Victor Garber??). In between Kirstie reading Victor Garber's IMDB history, we touch on the song mixes, the sound stage vibes, and how much this thing truly slaps. We also promote a certain tv interview that's already aired and unfortunate now-old news about Mr. Hot & Tall In Perpetuity, so this is a blast from the past in pretty much every way.

The Great British Sewing Bee

This week, we pushed the boundaries of geographical internet roadblocks to finally watch The Great British Sewing Bee! While there are no tears over works of art on this iteration of the quaint maker competition, we do get to learn a lot about things like darts and sewing on the bias and whether or not sewing makes for good tv. The most important thing this week is that we get a REALTIME REVIEW at the end of the episode and we have a lot of feelings about it (THANK YOU NIKNIK!).

Ted Lasso

We've got soooooo much to unpack this week. Kelsey finally has her moment to deliver a friendship gift to Kirstie in the form of Ted Lasso and Kirstie........politely accepted. We spend some time trying to understand why a beautiful, self aware, well humored, kind show about friendship and the workplace wasn't somehow made specifically for Kirstie and the answer is.....fascism? This was our last episode recorded in Trump's America cut us some slack. Oh also Kirstie cries for the first time ever on the podcast so get hype.

Get your holiday lights and music display kits ready because it's finally time for Hatewatch Holidays 2020! We're kicking off the festivities with A Treat for Christmas... A Christmas Treat... Christmas for Treat... Treatmas? Whatever you want to call it, the important thing here is that our Treat Dad Treat Williams is in not one but two holiday films this year. After a lengthy discussion about the user experiences of streaming services that end in Plus, we're off to the races with The Christmas House, Hallmark's first endeavor to win over the gays. Honestly, it's not as bad as we thought it would be, despite some dicey plot choices (looking at you, fixer-upper on the Hudson). It's another story altogether for Christmas on the Square, arguably the biggest disappointment of our holiday movie season. We're gonna commission an episode of Handsome Justice to investigate the claim of whether angels can fly because they take themselves lightly and also why this movie is so bad. Stay tuned for several more Hatewatch Holidays installments coming soon!

Something something holidays, something something technical difficulties, listen: some of us were busy crafting, watching Princess Diana documentaries, listening to Princess Diana podcasts, and otherwise gossiping about Prince Charles, which cut into editing time.

Chasing Liberty

Well folks, it's Election Week 2020, and what better time than the present to (1) come to you with breaking news about Celine Dion, and (2) revisit some patriotic content from a simpler election year. For those of you who haven't trained Google to push notify you with news about Sam Heughan, we spend more time than we ought to (and yet not nearly enough time???) discussing his new film Text For You/SMS Fur Dich/Text For Dick. Then it's time for a Romcomducation History Lesson™️ about teen romcoms from the early aughts, a time when we were all apparently CLAMORING for movies about teenage presidential daughters. The important takeaway from all this is that Chasing Liberty is the better of these films based on the ~Matthew Goode wearing men's bell bottoms~ factor alone.

Buckle your seatbelts and make sure your seat backs are in an upright position because this episode making a late arrival in your podcast feeds is about none other than the 90's classic sitcom Wings. It's Kirstie's turn to make Kelsey watch some formative media, and we agree that Wings is a delight that has aged MOSTLY well despite its fat jokes and Kennedy complex. Is Wings more charming than when Kirstie and Kelsey both forget everyday words and phrases in a single episode? You'll have to listen to find out. ALSO, there's a Treat Dad Update!

Christina and Tarek's Flip Side on the Coast 101

HGTV bought three reality shows at auction sight unseen, and despite adding a multitude of high end finishes, they're definitely over their reno budget! Will they stand to make a profit on this flip, or will they be beaten out by comps on Cottage Life Network? Who's to say? (We are. We are to say.) That's right folks, we've watched all of the Flip or Flop spinoffs with our favorite cyborg duo Christina and Tarek. From surprise weddings to on screen weeping, there is simultaneously a lot to cover and also nothing at all here.

We're back from our impromptu hiatus, which means we have an episode that's a little bit sloppy but mostly just friendship. We kick off with what's sure to be an award-winning pitch for Hallmark Channel this holiday season (spoilers: it involves a royal sibling, dogs, and bikes). Then, Kirstie has huge news to share, which leads to a discussion of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, known to this podcast as FRIENDSHIP ISLAND. We're very excited to be able to virtually hang out again, on this podcast and on Friendship Island, and if you are too, please give us a 5-star review!

Hatewatch IRL: Hotels

Hey guys, remember hotels? We took a trip in the Hatewatch time machine this week and traveled back to a more innocent time last year when your hosts got to be in the same place, at the same time, recording a podcast on the floor of a Holiday Inn. In addition to some unwise choices, including broad speculations about the possibilities of leisure travel in 2020, we also have some thoughts about hotels! We're talking bars, we're talking pools, we're talking birthday parties(???). Like our delightful canned gin & tonic cocktails, this episode is ready to enjoy!

The Dog House and The Great Pottery Throwdown

Today we're going to sit down at the wheel and throw an episode for y'all about some British reality tv coming to an HBO Max near you. But first - the Emmy nominations were released and we have thoughts (shocker). Basically if Schitt's Creek doesn't sweep we're quitting. So after our designated time for gripes and gloats, we're on to The Dog House (UK?), a show that's a real mixed bag featuring puppies and poor decision making. While we aren't sure The Dog House is for us, the show that decidedly IS for us is The Great Pottery Throwdown (or as we so confidently call it, The Great British Throwdown - at some point all show names are the same). We learn about ceramics, we learn about how horny pottery can be, there's history lessons... and we won't spill the beans here but it's possible we may even have a new addition to the Dad Canon. Tune in to find out!

Hot or Tall

Welcome to the entire episode that we've dedicated to our favorite game: Is He Hot or Is He Tall? We take a scientific approach to the hot or tall dichotomy, discuss Kirstie's Tall Man Hierarchy, and generally spend an hour sharing the results of hours of "[celebrity name] + height" Google searches. Feel free to tweet us the heights of various famous men at @hatewatchwithus (please, no comments about our horticulture).

Meghan Markle, Hallmark Star

It was the week that we learned Meghan Markle starred in not one but TWO Hallmark movies! You heard that right folks, we're discussing When Sparks Fly and Dater's Handbook, two fine films that feature Meghan Markle, relatable video conferencing, and men who do the very least. We've got hot takes on Meghan's acting chops, her Hallmark hair journey, and the intracacies of Fourth of July wedding attire. If you, too, feel like you are stuck in a dead-end job making bad tv movies, just hold out hope that a year from now you will meet a dashing prince and get married and then divorce the royal family and live happily ever after because that is a much better story than the plots of either of these movies. THE END! If you enjoyed this, we think Meghan would want you to join us in donating and learning how you can help at the following links:

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Do you like Eurovision? Do you like fun? Do you wear a mask in public? Please allow us to point you in the direction of Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, a gift from the universe for us all. We could not have fewer regrets about dedicating two hours and two bottles of rosé to this movie. It's got songs that slap! It's got Pierce Dad! Honestly, if you need something to get you through until Mamma Mia 3 or the end of quarantine (whichever comes first), you will not go wrong with this film.

We were watching a tv show the other daaaaay... That's right folks, Kirstie watched eight whole seasons of television (ALLEGEDLY) and now it's finally time to talk about Letterkenny, the filthiest show for nice people only. This super soft episode features over 50 minutes of us talking about how much we like this show. Nots to be impolite, but if you have a problem with Letterkenny, you have a problem with us, and we suggest you let that marinate. If you haven't watched it yet... pitter patter!

More Quarantine TV Recommendations

We are back this week with a Kuarantine Korner update, because it appears that Quarantine will never end! Fortunately, Bravo's like a second stew offering us expensive champagne because Below Deck Med is back and we have some thoughts! After we discuss which members of the crew may or may not be unhinged and update our preference sheets for these our Quarantimes, we talk about a few more shows that have piqued our interest, including The Great, Peaky Blinders, and Letterkenny (stay tuned for next week PHEASANTS).

The Durrells In Corfu

Note from your cohosts: This week's episode is coming to you from several weeks ago, so there's a noteworthy lack of commentary about these, our ever changing modern times! In lieu of begging for 5-star reviews, please focus your efforts on a much more worthwhile cause and join us in donating and learning how you can help at the following links: Have you done that? Great! Now if what you need is some escapist tv, we fortuitously chose this week to talk about The Durrells in Corfu. This show may or may not be a prequel to Mamma Mia (yes we know there already is a prequel), and what it lacks in song and dance numbers it makes up for in sass and men that are both Hot and Tall.

Homestead Rescue

What happens when one cohost low key picks up homesteading? Apparently, this. We're here to bring you a true hatewatch this week, Discovery Channel's Homestead Rescue. We watched the pilot and we have thoughts about goat enclosures, conspiracy theories, and the patriarchy. We also workshop an iteration of Homestead Flip or Flop, which feels like a lot more fun (call us, Discovery Channel?). While we're at it, Cottage Life Network, please also call us and give us a way to access Brojects. Thank you!

Never Have I Ever

The story of this podcast is that we won't be discussing Eurovision 2020, because it was a lie. Instead, we are here to talk about our feelings as they relate to the Netflix original series, Never Have I Ever. You all are delighted, we assume. Come for Hot or Tall, stay for tales of high school romance from Kirstie's past. Also, if you know the height of Ben Gross, please contact us immediately at @hatewatchwithus.

Bind Off: Outlander Season 5

Welcome to our slightly delayed review of Outlander, season 5! We've got highs, we've got lows, and we've got petty thoughts. But that's not all, folks. We channeled the spirit of Outlander with this unwieldy 1:40 minute episode, which means we also had time for Mustache Moments™️, Jamie Fraser's Big Hagrid Energy, and wild speculation about the future of this series! If you don't care about Kirstie & Kelsey's Kuarantine Korner (rude), feel free to skip ahead to minute 8 to jump into Outlander talk.

Inside the Episode

This week, we're bringing the energy of an overconfident showrunner in a 3 minute postshow featurette with a topic we're fondly calling Inside the Dick. We present some groundbreaking theories including: audiences are smart, clip shows right after episodes are dumb, and maybe certain men should be less smug. This episode isn't an Outlander episode, but it's also not NOT and Outlander episode. Please enjoy, please stay home, and please tell us what you're watching so we can mention it in our new segment, Kirstie and Kelsey's Kuarantine Korner! --> @hatewatchwithus

Miracle Workers

Hello loyal listeners! This week, we are chatting about Miracle Workers and Miracle Workers: Dark Ages, a nice show (shows?) that demands absolutely nothing from you during these our Quarantimes. If you enjoy the more unhinged end of the Daniel Radcliffe spectrum or simply want to laugh at some poop jokes, this show (shows?) is for you. This episode features a trademark Hot or Tall investigation and at least two teasers for upcoming episodes!

William & Kate: The Movie(s)

What happens when you come to recording night to discuss one film, but the universe delivers you a different mission? Is it destiny? Kind of like when you arrive to your first day of university and you bump into your future wife, who happens to have a life size poster of you on her wall? Today at Hatewatch, we are here to discuss the age-old questions, Who are they? and What is this?, as we watch not one but two(!) made for TV movies about the love story of Prince William & Kate Middleton.

Things are getting weird in 2020 and we're coming at ya with some content recommendations to get you through self quarantine! First, wash your hands, then settle in for a grab bag of things to watch, things to avoid, Census PSAs, and Kirstie's soapmaking adventures. We also have a GLOWING review to discuss in detail, and Kirstie gets mad that Kelsey watched a movie without her (some things never change, even during pandemics).

Below Deck Sailing Yacht

All crew all crew! Our preference sheet includes bad reality TV about boat crews so that means we MUST discuss Below Deck Sailing Yacht immediately. The thing about sailing is that it's different than yachting, and it's hard to say who spends more time on that distinction, the producers or us. Below Deck Sailing Yacht has problematic chefs, problematic chief stews, problematic crew couples, and problematic third wheel captain dads, so buckle up for a wild ride as we cut the engines and raise the sails!

Sam Heughan Appreciation

Outlander season has returned, and in that spirit, we are bringing to you a spicy hot discussion of a spicy hot man. That's right folks, we are embarking on our favorite pastime and diving into Sam Heughan's IMDB backlog this week. We watched Where the Starlight Ends, a questionable film featuring attempted American accents and also jorts. Then, as a treat, we watched The Spy Who Dumped Me, which will henceforth be referred to as Kirstie's Sam Heughan Sexual Awakening and/or The Time Kelsey Was Right. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we enjoy the raw animal magnetism of Sam Heughan.

We're taking a Christmas journey to two Europes, both of which are based in a reality so otherworldly, Candace Cameron-Bure remains our only tether to life here on Earth. First, we journey to Rome to catch up with our old friend Lacey in the Hallmark Original, Christmas in Rome. It's another Christmas, and another jockish businessman who only knows spreadsheets and overtime, but luckily Lacey is there to help him knead bread, however questionable the technique. Then we head to Aldovia to reunite with Queen Amber, in A Christmas Prince 3: The Trilogy We Never Asked For. I'm sorry, :The Royal Baby. We're bringing the hot takes on birth plans, contractions, paint rollers, feminism, and the naming conventions of fictional countries.

Christmas In Evergreen 3 and Sense, Sensibility, and Snowmen

Hatewatch Holidays continue this week with two new original movies from the eternally sexless Hallmark Channel. First, we're revisiting Evergreen for the THIRD time with Christmas In Evergreen 3: Tidings of Joy. Our favorite totally real Vermont town is back to their whimsical ways with a plot heavy advent calendar time capsule situation! Stay tuned for next year when we inevitably cover Christmas In Evergreen 4: Small Boy Gets Another Key and Everybody Goes To Therapy. Our second film this week is Sense, Sensibility, and Snowmen, which carries on the Hallmark tradition of disgracing Jane Austen's good name for the sake of Christmas content. Also, the podcast would like to note that the jingle bells in this episode is not in fact our own festive sound effect but rather the resident pod dog channeling the spirit of Christmas with his collar. We're not sorry.

First we reunite with Kelsey's One True Dad and Kirstie's new Problematic Uncle, Dennis Quaid, in the Netflix Christmas show Merry Happy Whatever. We get to relive all the highlight of moments in television like Last Man Standing and Everybody Loves Raymond and Dennis Quaid's relationship with much younger women and the patriarchy. Then we are discussing the Freeform reality show Wrap Battle. Join us in rapidly wrapping this pilot (see what we did there?) and exploring some reality tv deep state conspiracy theories.

Then, it's time for us to circle back on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, one of the great films of 2001.

We are Tits Out At The Colosseum for our new two-part format, Make Each Other Watch A Hatewatch. Part 1 is the Starz show Spartacus.

Schitt's Creek

Everything is fine this week as we roll the dice and stay up way past our knitting curfew to give Kelsey a space to yell about all the reasons she was right about Schitt's Creek. It's an act of gate keeping, friendship, self restraint and shitty railroads. We get hype about characters, place, romcoms, sitcoms, Canada, and the Gay Agenda. If you listen to our show because we hate stuff, this is not the episode for you. If you listen to our show and think, "man I wish you liked stuff sometimes?", then this is for you.

We are dutifully recapping Game of Thrones over at our other podcast, Our Watch Has Ended, but in the interest of Alternative Content, we are here today to recommend content that scratches Game of Thrones' various itches.

We discuss Oreo, Shake Shack, the American Red Cross, Mountain Dew, Urban Decay, Love Pop, Rolling Pins, Johnny Walker, and Spotify. How many houses are there? How do you fit a house on a cookie?

Jane the Virgin and Abby's

This week we are two hosts who are feeling confident about what we have prepared for you: two shows that have names, a show that gives us feelings and a show that doesn't, and a rundown of the ways our heros have failed us. We watched Jane the Virgin and the new Mike Schur show Abby's. We've got an episode of our Everwood Podcast Within the Podcast, a lot to say about narrative stakes, and some broad and varied hot takes on television pilots. Jane the Virgin spoilers end around 37-38 minutes. Don't forget to subscribe to our new podcast, Our Watch Has Ended, for all of your Game of Thrones content!

Return to Cottage Life UK: Cabins in the Wild and House Doctor

We're revisiting our favorite network in our hearts this week and have found some gems from Netflix's selection of Cottage Life UK content. However, we don't visit Netflix without generating a few gripes, and we have A LOT OF THEM because Netflix has unjustly removed Canadian Cottage Life from their offering. Once we get over our feelings about that (and begin our letter writing campaign), we meet our new friends Dick Strawbridge and Willie Fedora over at Cabins in the Wild. This segment includes Dragon themed cabins, live reports from Snowdonia National Park, and everybody's favorite time - Kirstie and Kelsey google some things about pioneer life. Then we move on to House Doctor (how can I help?), where we meet yet another bag of dicks, Grumpy Old Dickie. We learn a lot about rooms with a point of view and our point of view is that this show is a disaster. This episode wraps up with a discussion of the maple syrup grading system, so don't miss that. Happy sugaring season, y'all! Don't forget to check out our new Game of Thrones recap podcast, Our Watch Has Ended, wherever you're listening to this podcast!

The Night Shift and Manifest

This week, we're judging NBC and their choices in the drama category from the past few years. First, we're talking about two buuuckwild episodes of The Night Shift, a summer medical/military drama that just did a lot of things badly. Next up is Manifest, a disaster drama that's also very bad and features heavy amounts of Jesus. But never fear! We have some unexpected Jane the Virgin feels and even more unexpected TREATS, so make sure to stick around til the end.

Legends of Tomorrow and Everwood

Thanks to a listener suggestion, we spend this week's episode down a rabbit hole known as the WB Then and Now, Pilot Palooza Bonus Round, Make Kirstie Watch An Everwood, or The Greg Berlanti Factor. We bring you in depth reporting such as show runner horoscopes, Comics vs RomComs, and Legends of Eurovision. Kirstie says "tonality" a lot so you know it has to be good! Then we finally talk about Kelsey's heart and soul, Everwood. Doc Brown comes to comfort us, and we sling some Hot Hallmark Takes and argue about Schitt's Creek. Like any small town, this episode has a lot of heart. Stay tuned for an announcement about our new project, pending the resolution of our endless struggle against A Major Podcast Distributer!

Sweet Home Alabama and Sitcom Living Rooms

It's a real grab bag of hatewatch nostalgia this week! Fate leads us to revisit Kirstie's "favorite romcom of all time," Sweet Home Alabama, and we have some thoughts about low rise flare jeans and jokes that make us uncomfortable in 2019. After a brief discussion about novelty Instagram belts we have a chat about the living rooms of sitcoms, because nobody likes a high end finish like Hatewatch With Us.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and A Winter Princess

Before we begin this episode, let's take a moment to greet the podcast home. You know what that means: it's finally time to talk Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Spark joy with us on this adventure as Kirstie spends the entire segment masterfully avoiding admitting that she's wrong about how many steps there are in the KonMari method. Then we move on to kimono, which is actually just the Hallmark Channel. We discovered A Winter Princess (Winter for Princess? The Winter of Princess?) and we are here to tell you that it is a delight. Hallmark really phones it in in the wake of Hallmark Christmas, giving us the gift of our favorite fake European country name of all time.

Pilot Palooza 2018

It's that time of year where we look at the television landscape, put on our best White Savior Doctor lab coats and say, "How can I help?" We entered our third Pilot Palooza with a lot of hopes and dreams, and as it turned out nothing was our shit. After getting our squirrel on with this year's batch of shows, we may just need a montage to Coldplay's Fix You or a time machine. We watched New Amsterdam, Timeless, Glow, Sharp Objects, Vida, Killing Eve, and checked in briefly with Last Man Standing, play a quick round of Hot Or Tall, talk about a lot of other shows we would have rather been watching that weren't on the list, and nominate this year's Downward Dog because as always our heros have failed us.

Join us as we trade our gloats and gripes for the season and try to come to terms with challenging ideas such as actual human emotions, facial expressions, drawing, and sad tent sex.

Y'all better buckle up because drunk Santa is driving this podcast sleigh this week. In this very special episode of Netflix, What Have You Done? Christmas Edition, we're airing our grievances about The Christmas Chronicles and A Christmas Prince 2: The Royal Wedding. But it's not just DTF Santa and Aldovian wedding planning over here at Hatewatch HQ. Somehow, this episode takes us from Chris Columbus The Entity to JC Chasez's discography, desperate pleas to Ron Moore, and even a very special Hugh Grant deep cut (Hugh, where were you in Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again!????).

Pride, Prejudice, and Mistletoe and A Shoe Addict's Christmas

It's our last installment of Hatewatch Hallmark before moving on to the endless bounty of off-brand Christmas movies, so we are coming in hot this week. We start with the sequel to our Outlander Store Dot Com special: A Novice's Guide to Destiny Dice and honestly we feel this should have been its own segment because it had way more to offer than either of the films we watched. We then move on to Pride, Prejudice, and Mistletoe where we had a lot of questions about our stock options next fiscal year. Before long we are visited by the Ghost of Jean Smart Past, Future, and Present, and were transported to A Shoe Addict's Christmas where Kelsey bestowed upon us the gift of her Candance impression and ERHMERHGERD did we dig up an old ass meme.

Road to Christmas and Christmas In Evergreen: Letters to Santa

It's #HatewatchHallmark Vermont week! We watch Road to Christmas, where Kirstie learns how to identify a Chad Michael Murray in the wild, then it's like Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! all over again as we revisit our favorite town with an inexplicable Christmas theme in Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa. Ok, it's not quite as good as Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!, but what could be? We chat about the specific boundaries we want Hallmark to push, Kirstie references male romantic leads as "the guy... the love guy," and we even get some good old fashioned tchotchke ponzi schemes.

TV Weddings and Outlander Store Dot Com

We're going back to the archives this week with an episode we recorded when we "hadn't talked about Outlander in a while" (what?). Kirstie also drinks one 5.2% ABV beer, so get hype. We kick things off with a discussion of TV wedding tropes, and Kelsey tries desperately to get Kirstie to believe in television romance yet again. Then, we decide it's time to ruin the Outlander fandom's fun and visit, a truly wild place. That's right folks - they've got shower curtains, pocket standees, $500 replica gear - and we're here to bring you hard hitting reporting on all of it.

Hatewatch Holiday: COLUMBUS DAY 2018

It's time for one of our favorite Hatewatch Holidays: Christopher Columbus Day! We carry on the Hatewatch tradition of spending some time with the first two Harry Potter films. This year it's Chamber of Secrets and while we have a lot of gripes about the adaptive choices Chris Columbus made, it turned out we had a lot of gripes with JK Rowling, Ginny Weasley, and the romcoms our generation was promised. Then we discuss the 1995 film Nine Months, a nice and accidental tie in from recent events from Hatewatch Nation. Chris Columbus gets back on his bullshit, Hugh Grant is a dweeb, and y'all get the birth story you never asked for. After all, the big childbirth scene is every actresses dream???

Return from Hiatus and Netflix, What Have You Done?

This week we are taking you through the hole in the fabric of space-time, back 5 weeks to our first attempt at returning from hiatus. It was a simpler time when Kirstie was getting a lot less sleep and watching a lot more TV, and Kelsey was living her best RomCom life. First we discussed all the TV Kirstie watched on maternity leave, including the gringiness of 90s sitcoms, the argument for the 30 minute sitcom as a format, and Kirstie admitting she was right to lose the great Brooklyn 99 Fight of 2018. Then we have a rare opportunity to put a positive spin on everyone's favorite segment, Netflix, What Have You Done? With a pep in our step and sheer delight in our mics, we review the Netflix RomCom To All The Boys I loved Before, as well as praising the platform for their contributions to the RomCom Renaissance.

Things We Refuse to Watch and Regrettable Hobbies

Even though we're on semi-hiatus, we're still here bringing you spicy hot new content! Actually, this content is very old, and we're just bad at editing these days. This week's episode pulls from our favorite grab bag, the one that Pop Culture Happy Hour fans unknowingly created for us. First, we get into things we refuse to watch, and we learn that Kirstie has beef about content that people love too deeply. Then, we talk about regrettable hobbies, which turns out to be a regrettable segment topic too. But we make the best of it and spend most of our time discussing puzzles.

First, we talk about the new season of Arrested Development, our feelings about mid-2000s political satire, and we put all the men in rice. Then, we take a deep dive into the highly anticipated new romcom, Little Italy, staring Emma Roberts and notorious Anti-Sand advocate Hayden Christensen.

Alex Inc and Podcast TV

Everyone's favorite Tuesday-Adjacent podcast is back to get a little meta as we talk about podcasts becoming tv shows and tv shows about podcasts trying to become podcasts companies......or something. We start with the new Zack Braff show Alex Inc., where we struggle with our feelings about Zack Braff, teenage magicians, family comedies, and 401Ks. Get the sco op on the upcoming Hatewatch With Us adaptation including episode synopses, the dream cast, and other hot details. Then we move on to discussing the idea of adapting podcasts into television. We ponder deep questions like which podcasts are television worthy, what podcasts would we hate to watch, and play our favorite game Listen to Kirstie and Kelsey Google. Our main take away was Zack Braff isn't great, ABC needs to stay in their lane, and Roman Mars and Kevin McCloud should face off in a competitive reality show.

Kelsey finds out trains exist, Mary Portus' origin story is revealed, Kirstie learns vocabulary and we find ourselves trying to navigate some messily told character stories. Then we transition to Weekend Aristocrats, a show about rich white men and their endless fear of plebs. Kelsey gets to relive the show vicariously through this episode, from peacocks to divorces. Come for the Halloween, stay for the tough conversations about socioeconomic inequality and generational aristocracy. We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network.

Outlander Omnibus: Je Suis Prest for the Men of Outlander

Something strange happened with this episode, as if it fell through the stones at Cragh na dun and got lost for a few days before finding its way back to these, our modern times. Or at least that’s the story we’re going with to explain why this episode is late. This time on the Outlander Omnibus, we’re talking MEN, specifically men we want to bone, more specifically, Jamie. We spend some time objectifying everybody’s favorite fantasy husband, then we expand to discuss the rest of Outlander’s men. Kirstie has some latent feelings about turtlenecks again, and we wrap it all up with the legendary Hatewatch segment, listen to us Google a thing. JE SUIS PREST!

Reality TV BYOB and The Oscars...Kind Of

Nothing says content rut like forgetting what both of your segments were and deciding on them by accident. This week we're bringing back a good old fashion BYOB with Glam Masters and Skin Wars. We discuss weird reality TV tropes, compare elimination techniques, and gush about Great British Bake Off. Then we bring you a segment a week behind popular culture, and discuss our feelings about this year's Oscars. Specifically, why we didn't watch this year's Oscars and why we aren't more interested in movies in general. Kirstie and Kelsey go on a first date, we go down memory lane with some of our best childhood field trips, and we meet our Third Chair. It's a big, silly episode and we're not mad about it.

Outlander Omnibus: Outlander, An American Girl Story and Sorting Outlander

The time has finally come friends! The Outlander Omnibus has arrived and we are the most hype. First, we introduce you to our unconventional take on the show, Outlander: An American Girl Story. We cover all the hits like Meet Claire! Claire Learns A Lesson! Claire Saves The Day! Claire Makes A Friend! It's a costume drama steeped in historical moments but for Adults (and the occasional Ebay Seller?)! Then, we go a different adaptive route and try our hand at Sorting the characters of Outlander. Find out who the Surprise Slytherin is, which family is most likely to produce Gryffindors, ponder with us why there weren't more Ravenclaws, and appreciate the strength of the Hufflepuff representation. There's truly something for everyone in this episode even if you don't like time travel or pagans! We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network. Find us at: @thoughtbubblefm @hatewatchwithus

Bachelor Winter Games and A Princess For Christmas

Listen DingleDorks, don't let the name of this episode scare you. It may say Christmas up there but we're really just talking about questionably constructed romances and Sam Heughan's Thighs. We're starting off in the Motherland with Bachelor Winter Games and Kelsey's very first introduction to Bachelor Nation. We have a lot of feelings about Vermont, Chris Harrison's lowkey racism, and Canadians who don't know how to ski. Then, we begin with the Prequel to our Outlander Omnibus with A Princess for Christmas. Good news, it was never really about Christmas. Bad news, we did still watch this movie. Come for the objectification of Sam Heughan's body, stay for the jokes about tight pants and Buffalo. Next week we're coming in hot with all the Outlander content we've been promising you for months, so consider this your warm up episode. We sure did.

Brojects and Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party

The red thread of this week's topics is chicken wings, so it's bound to be a good one. First, we're revisiting our friends at Cottage Life Network, where we spend some time in Nova Scotia tracking lobsters through the woods with our one true handy brother duo on Brojects. Then, we learn just how metal Martha Stewart is on Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. Come for the pot puns, stay for the sensible household tips about splatter guards.

The Bad Place and The Good Place

Worlds collide in this episode as you, the listener, get to join us just hours after we learned that the Daves (of Game of Thrones fame) would be given a Star War. We yell, we make bets, we have feelings. This is our bad place folks. Then we take the train over to The Good Place to catch up with Season 2. There is thirst for Chidi, we might have accidentally written a Chidi/Outlander AU, we get a little deep, and Kirstie is disappointed by references.

Cheapest Weddings and Randos of Facebook

This week we're tackling two classic Hatewatches. First, we start with the Australian import Cheapest Weddings, aka: the Randos of Facebook of Reality TV. The are red carpets, gossipy bowling alleys, tropical storms, crochet wedding dresses, and lots of other budget fun. Then we switch to some Hatewatch Analog to discuss Randos of Facebook and the new reign of terror that is Randos of Instagram. We start off making fun of weddings of the ghosts of high school past, and end up lecturing you on internet safety. At the end of the day, we just want you to be safe and happy out there. Also, have we mentioned that we're watching a lot of Outlander? We really like Outlander. We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network. Find us at: @thoughtbubblefm @hatewatchwithus

The Really F*cking Good Television Awards Show (For Nice People Only)

We did it, we managed to emerge from our Outlander binge to record our first annual Really Fcking Good Television Awards Show (For Nice People Only)! And truly, we deserve an award just for that. In this, our most awkwardly timed episode, we honor the nice television we watched in 2017 and definitely don't associate with any other political events related to awards shows. Come for the Hot or Tall Award, stay for the reveal of Best Hatewatch of the Year (and the surprise musical number). Worth noting - this episode was recorded before the allegations against Aziz Ansari. We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network. Find us at: @thoughtbubblefm @hatewatchwithus

Pilot Palooza 2017

It's our second favorite Hatewatch Holiday of the year! Pilot Palooza is back with all the shows we didn't watch in 2017. We start with a retrospective of the shows we watched during last year's Pilot Palooza and get emotional about all the friends we've made along the way. Then we dive right in with the 6 shows from our hat. The only thing hotter than Kirstie's mic are all the takes. We had feelings about men, computers, feminism, Scottish men, HBO, Rob Lowe, time travel, and knitting patterns. This was a year of long episodes and an overall impression of "meh". Find out which show stood out in the pack and start making plans for next year's Pilot Palooza. We also have a very special shout out for our first Apple Podcast reviewer! We also deeply apologize for Kirstie's audio quality, take it as a lesson to never spend time in a closet. We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network.

A Christmas Prince and Christmas in Evergreen

Last week we told you a story about wanting to limit our Christmas content. This week we said fuck it. First we're coming in hot with another installment of Netflix, What Have You Done? We talk about A Christmas Prince, princess shit, whether or not certain cohosts do or do not want certain protagonists to bone, laws stuffed in acorns, our pitch for A Christmas Prince 2, and most importantly, we fancast the Aldovian Eurovision Team (Spoiler alert: It's Adam Driver in a horse head mask). Next up we're baking up some Chicken and Pinecones in the Hallmark Cinematic Universe with Christmas in Evergreen. There are magic snowglobes, Coke Santa and airport rants, somehow Kirstie blacks out and forgets half the plot, Kelsey manages to sneak in some Everwood feels, and then we round the whole thing out by complaining about how much we hate Ted from How I Met Your Mother. If you're looking for us, we'll just be in our Christmas Void until the next installment of #HatewatchHallmark. We are members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network.

American Girl Christmas and The Mistletoe Inn

This episode of Hatewatch With Us is funny, smart, AND festive - a triple threat! First, we’re talking about the Amazon Original American Girl movie, Maryellen: An Extraordinary Christmas and hoo boy is it ever extraordinary. We learn about transporting snow from Georgia to Florida, and Kelsey temporarily forgets that skirts are an article of clothing that exist. Then, we take a brief break to discuss Hallmark Channel breaking news before diving into the latest in our #HatewatchHallmark saga, The Mistletoe Inn. Make sure to ask Kirstie if she can confirm that the Rocky Mountains, British Columbia, and New Zealand are not in Vermont! She’s not bitter at all.

#Twinning: The Parent Trap and Switched At Christmas

IDENTITY THEFT IS NOT A JOKE, JIM. This week we are going all in on stories about twins switching lives and #twinning. First, we revisit Kelsey's Formative Media and have a long overdue conversation about The Parent Trap. There's some breaking wine news and plenty of yelling about Dennis Quaid, DILF and One True Dad. Come for Kelsey getting emotional about her early learning in RomComs, stay for the child endangerment. Then we discuss the Hallmark movie, Switched At Christmas, a delightful film in which two fully grown Candaces decide that in order to chase their bliss they must be a different Candace and trick men into falling in love with them. It's a classic hatewatch complete with high end finishes, pink tape measures and egregiously aggressive holiday decorations. We're members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network.

First up this week, Sandra Rinomato and her pink tape measure introduce us to the Single Ladies Of Toronto™ and their $750k condo budgets, a true gift from HGTV Canada.

Bob's Burgers Thanksgiving and The Sweetest Christmas

Pass the cranberry sauce! We're having mashed potatoes! It's our Thanksgiving special and we're thankful for you! This week we're starting with an overview of all the Thanksgiving themed episodes, from Linda songs to Bob being a sad sack. Spoiler alert: both Kirstie and Kelsey end up singing and that's something for YOU to be thankful for. Then we begin what will be a 5 week Hatewatch Celebration of Hallmark Movies with The Sweetest Christmas. It's great, as long as you don't get any gumdrops in my garlic knots. We get distracted by the female gaze, Kelsey loves ginger snaps and Kirstie yells about exactly which Starbucks Syrups she has personal beef with. Also gingerbread happens in multitudes.

Nerducation Part 3: Kirstie Wants Everyone To Stop Boning

A long time ago in a podcast far far away...... Episode 3, Kirstie Wants Everyone To Stop Boning. Kirstie and Kelsey have returned to their home hatewatch of Star Wars to rescue their friend Rebel Hot Pilot from the clutches of Kirstie's surprise Anti-Rom-Com attack, and Kelsey has no problems with everyone boning. Kirstie has a lot of feelings about DIY Jedi's, and eventually establishes that she and the Force just have different priorities. Kirstie and Kelsey are obsessed with Han Solo's rockin' bod and the Female Gaze. Kirstie's beef with the Force contains multitudes, but with all her blood magic she still manages to rise from the ashes as a Star Wars Fortune Teller, fortelling the arrival of the TV series. To round it all out, there are quotes from viral videos in 2003, an appearance from the Seatbelt Deputy and a discussion of the benefits of the five point harness, and an argument about knitting organization because brand game gotta stay strong.

Designated Survivor and The Writer's Strike

This episode stands as a Monument to the sheer force of the human spirit as we overcome our various afflictions to bring you some kind of shit related to Designated Survivor using the Lucas Method of Hatewatch. Break out your hoody and your Warby Parkers and sit back as we get to know some friends such as Keither Suferland, some Coiffed Young Sirs, and the Everyshow's Aarons and Collins. Kelsey doesn't know the Capitol Building, and everything comes to a grinding halt when we discover Earmapping. The high end finishes really increased the value of this Hatewatch. Then, we pivot to celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the 2007 Writer's Strike. We've got the oral history of the Strike, as well as an overview of all the shows we loved and how they were impacted. Come for the historical context, stay for the history of how WE ended it. Things were going well until Kelsey's great Dinner Party reveal, at which point everything comes to a grinding, petty halt.

We've got the ghosts of bad costumes, trick or treat horror stories, and two ~Spirited~! sitcoms (see what we did there?).

Then, we try out a new segment in which we explore recurring Very Special Seasonal Episodes of our favorite TV shows.

Norsemen and Reno My Reno

This week we are channeling the full spirit of Li'l Hygge with two shows that are members of Li'l Hygge's Knitting Corner. We start with the Netflix original, Norsemen, which is equal parts Game of Thrones, Monty Python, and poop. We apologize. Then, we cover a Netflix offering from our neighbors to the north, Reno My Reno from the Cottage Life Network. As our second Hatewatch from the Cottage Life Network, Reno My Reno starts off as your typical hatewatch, but quickly devolves into Kirstie and Kelsey doing some live, on-air investigative journalism to learn more about this scrappy network. We delve deep into Pinterest, the Cottage Life Convention, and all four of their featured shows. Kelsey then insults Kirstie's motherland, and we all come out of it about as well as the emasculated home owners at the end of their cottage renos. We are members of the Thought Bubble Audio Network.

Nerducation: Episode 2 George Takes the Wheel

A long time ago, in a podcast far far away.... Episode 2, George Takes the Wheel. The greedy Trade Federation has stopped all haircuts in all the films of 2005, making this the Year Without the Haircut for jedis, wizards, and elves alike. Over 20,000 Jedi Blood Bacteria have threatened to leave the podcast under the leadership of Anakin Skywalker and Jonah Ryan's 2020 presidential bid. There are heros on both sides somehow inexplicably. Jedi Blood Magic has swept into the Republic in search of the Three Eyed Emo, Anakin Skywalker, who has taken time away from his presidential campaign to finish his degree from the DanRad School of Acting. While the congress endlessly debates this distressing turn of events, all of the women leave the galaxy with their OBGYNs, leaving Natalie Portman alone with nothing but George Lucas and a bad trip to the beach. Kirstie and George Lucas both have burning questions which were only resolved when George Ask Jeeved. Star Wars Produce are returning to the set to cast their final vote on just how stupid George Lucas really thinks the American public has been at various points in film and food history.

Kirstie admits that she has never seen A Star War, and Kelsey must guide her through the Original Trilogy. Danger lurks in the stars above in the form of fennel, poorly thought-out government infrastructure, questionable bronzer, and trash compactors. While the Congress of Hatewatch endlessly debates the alarming turn of events during the Trivia portion, listeners are reveling in Kirstie's naivety.

Thunderpants and The Wine Show

This week is apparently all about short British men. First, we maybe get a little too close to rules 34 and 36 of the internet with Rupert Grint's most famous cinematic masterpeice, Thunderpants. We watched a two hour fart joke so we could spend a half hour using fart jokes to make fun of people who think fart jokes are funny. Really, we were just jealous we didn't fart ourselves into space. Kelsey then takes some safari style polaroids, and we transition into talking about The Wine Show.

For our A Segment we try lots of things so you don't have to, namely Facebook Watch but also, Maple Bacon Potato Chips. For our B segment, we decided the time had come to watch two formative texts from Kirstie and Kelsey's lives.

What Fresh Hell Is This and Qwikster Day

This week we literally had to fight off a curse which included coffee spills, jacked up audio, and a mid-recording spider ambush in order to bring you this glorious content. We've got our Fall Tv Preview, complete with the return of everyone's favorite game segment, What Fresh Hell is This???? We talk about the Military Industrial Television Complex, Young Sheldon, Super Magicians turned FBI Agents, single cam sitcoms, Reboots, and so much more. Spoiler alert, we're not happy about any of it. Then for our B segment, it's time for a Hatewatch Holiday: Qwikster Day. Announced on Sept 18th, 2011, Netflix made a life choice that they regretted and rectified by October 10th, 2011. Kelsey has had this day marked on her google calendar ever since. We chose to commemorate this mistake by watching the new Netflix Original: The Adventures of Bobby Draper. Sorry, I meant White Gold. We've got grown men peeing their pants and other stuff that helps us keep our explicit rating. Spoiler alert: We don't hate it as much as we should have. Mark your calendars for next year!

Bind Off: Game of Thrones S7E6

We start this episode in Westeros Middle School and end this episode in a lizard uterus because all things in this show come full circle except for plot. It's the second to last episode of season 7 and it's tough to be 13 years old and running a kingdom during a zombie apocalypse. We've got all the hot gossip like Tyrion passing notes to Jon for Dany, Tormund trying to get Brienne to go to the dance with him, Li'l Finger stoking the fear of his li'l finger, and Westeros finally got a mall for everyone to hang out in! Also, Arya totally made it personal when she offended our knitting, so girl can take her silicon faces and shove them right up her Fossil briefcase. Good news though! The dick jokes are back, Kelsey is still looking for the RomCom and we have some quick updates on the fantasy teams.

Facebook TV and Formative Media

Whether or not anyone asked for it, Facebook is trying to be the rom com career woman of television and we’ve got some spicy hot content predictions coming at ya this week. From lonelygirl15 spinoffs to meta livestreaming to workplace comedies about Facebook for Work, the opportunities for Facebook Watch are endless with our buddy Zuck at the wheel. Then in part one of a two-part discussion, we take a look back at the formative media in our lives. While Kirstie gets hype about developmental psychology and media theories, we find out neat Hatewatch trivia like Kelsey’s consistent thirst for her childhood crush, Kirstie vs. Matt Damon circa 2002, and our collective Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing experiences. Also we brag about spending time together in person, which is exactly as compelling as it sounds.

Hatewatch Our Joy: The Big Sick and Jane the Virgin

If you're here for a hatewatch, we're offering ourselves up as tributes this week. You get to Hatewatch Kelsey's Joy and Hatewatch Kirstie's Feels in this double header as Kelsey BYOBs the new romantic comedy The Big Sick and we FINALLY get to discuss Jane the Virgin in all its glory (including season 3 spoilers, you've been warned). TL:DR, we really like these things and we just really really want you to like them too. In return, we give you gifts such as Kelsey reenacting movies, a primer of Kirstie's complicated relationship with Ray Romano, digs at House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Confederate and the RomCom badlands, and Kirstie getting lost in time and space. Find us on Twitter, because if the episode run time doesn't make it clear, we really want to talk to you about these stories more.

The Emmys and Moonlight in Vermont

So the Emmy nominations dropped and our feelings can best be summed up as.....meh??? We debrief our feelings about This Is Us, the number of repeat nominations, air our grievances about the VICIOUS SNUBS, and have nothing to say about several categories. Then, we take a field trip to the motherland and hate watch the Hallmark original movie. Moonlight in Vermont. You're going to learn a lot about syrup grading, maple trees, Montpelier, locally sourced ingredients, and New York real estate agents. Much like the oyster-mushroom-Meet-Cute, this segment is the beginning of something beautiful and unexpected, as Kelsey and Kirstie begin to fall deeply in love with Hallmark Original Movies.

Bind Off: Game of Thrones S7E3

It's Sunday so of course we're checking in on Game of Thrones. The season 6 writers are back with Choose-Your-Own-Adventure dick and grammar jokes, Kelsey Has A Gripe, Li'l Finger and his Li'l Finger pew pew pew their way through the Li'l Finger News Bulletin, Cersai scored at Mac on Free Lipstick Day, we have our first point in our Fantasy Draft, and Policy Wonks win the episode in both Dragonstone and Winterfell. Cross over universes this week included the Grand Designs tour of Dany's Bespoke Dragonstone Throne, Bran Potter and the Goblet of Winterfell, House of (Ice and Fire) Cards, and The Office. Sorry, there were no funny puns for that one. We also jumped aboard the #noconfederate bandwagon. We're off the next two weeks for vacation, but join us again for Episode 6 later in August! Regular episodes will continue on Tuesdays.

TV Friendships and TV Talk

We are overcome with friendship this week as we FINALLY discuss a topic near and dear to our hearts: Television Friendships. We cover some greatest hits like Anne and Leslie and partners who are cops (cops who are partners?), Kelsey does a Teddy impression, we wax poetic about tv friendships as instructional texts, Kelsey gets a dig in at Kirstie's cat and Kirstie gets a final dig in at Downward Dog. All of this then got us thinking about what happens when people disagree about television. What do we do when people watch bad television, people are wrong about television, people don't like our input on television, television becomes a proxy for these, our modern times or people are too attached to Game of Thrones? Honestly, we aren't actually sure. Join us for a long and wandering journey through our feelings, insecurity, and soul searching in an attempt to avoid crushing the spirits of other TV watchers. There's no right or wrong way to tell this story, except this is maybe wrong.

Bind Off: Game Of Thrones S7E2

We're back at it with episode two of season who the fuck knows! This week we got grammar lessons as plot devices, Dany and Tyrion gave us a Grand Designs cross over, Arya and Hot Pie gave us a Great British Bake Off cross over, we were treated to Varys Story Time, Arya met a Hyppogriff, The Greyjoys bought some fireworks at a New Hampshire liquor store and brought them on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, Theon recreated THAT scene from the Titanic, Sam is brewing polyjuice potion to cure Sir Friendzone's gonorrhea, and Jon looks like a bowl of vanilla ice cream. It's a high stakes game of sibling rivalries, stray pets, and alternative cross-over universes, complete with grammar lessons, dick-less jokes, and food that looks like STDs. Oh, and the Li'l Finger News Bulletin is coming in hot, perhaps foreshadowing the outcome of our Fantasy League, so get ready to place your bets on the House Snark's JV team!

Downward Dog Update and Narrators

Y'all gotta get as hype as Kelsey for this episode because the final verdict on season one of Downward Dog was released recently and it's time to put this show to bed. We talk about the last couple of episodes of the season and all the reasons your dog can't be you boyfriend, even if he is narrating your millennial life. Then we take everything we've learned from Downward Dog to discuss narrators: ones we like, important ones, literary devices, and the best Mad Men AU ever written. Dear listeners, please feel free to jump on that opportunity and send us the Peggy/Joan/Carrie Bradshaw narrator fan fiction of our dreams.

Bind Off: Game of Thrones S7E1

Winter has come for House Hatewatch. We rejoined our forlorn ensemble cast and our lost and lonely writers for yet another season of Game of Thrones. Though to be honest, we might have been watching Harry Potter. We weren't sure. We've got our Official Dick Joke Count, the Airing of Grievances, the Li'l Finger News Bulletin, and an introduction to our fantasy teams - House Snark and Valar Prestigious. Tune in every Sunday night for our 15 minute recaps and updates, and feel free to live tweet along with us using the hashtag #hatewatchGOT.

Game of Thrones Preview and RomComducation Part 5: THE FINALE

There's a show coming back to television on some network and we think we've maybe seen it before or it's important or something, so we're previewing it for you. Game of Thrones? Does that sound familiar? We're not sure. We don't know where we are in time or space, much like the Game of Thrones writer's room. We attempt to reorient ourselves to Westeros, make some wild speculations about the season to come, and preview for you what we will be doing to survive this season. Next, we have the finale of our 5 episode series on RomComducation. Kirstie waxes poetic about how far we've all come and Kelsey guides us through closing the loop on this long saga. We should all take a moment to praise her sage wisdom and all the gifts she has to offer. Let us know if we missed anything along this journey!

Utopia of Awesomeness: Property Brothers and Grand Designs

Sometimes, you encounter a home improvement program, and it's ordinary. Guided by a contractor, a friend, or perhaps, two brothers, the buyers face adversities that limit their budgets and imaginations. They wind up with a home that's perfectly suitable for their purposes. But other times, you may happen upon a builder who yearns for more.

When you embark on the audacious task of evaluating home improvement television, you may just discover the spirit of humanity. Saddle up your Lil' Hygge and enter this Utopia of Awesomeness to discover all of the secret lives of home improvement host extraordinaires, Jonathan and Drew Scott and Kevin McCloud. We're talking cob, mahogany, bespoke suits, The Most Interesting Man In the World, amusement parks, the Third Olsen Twin, and more.

RomComducation Part 3 and Downward Dog

Ok first we're gonna shoot straight with you, yeah we know the sound quality is rough, but it does get better. Hatewatch With Us: Production is hard and cross platform editing is rude. Just like these, the badlands of our audio quality, we will be exploring both the peaks and valleys of RomComs in Part 3 of Kirstie's RomComducation. We've got the movies that defined the genre as well as the movies that destroyed the genre and trust us, we've got feelings on them all. Then, we decided to watch a show no one asked for: ABC's Downward Dog. We've got feelings about allegories, dogs, CGI, millennials, and more. Come for the snark, stay for the knitting patterns in a new segment/social media campaign we're calling Hatewatch Knitting Circle. Stay tuned for Downward Dog related project updates, and feel free to send up any and all of your knitting projects!

House of Cards and Lil' Hygge's Knitting Corner

House of Cards sure was a thing that happened huh? The slog is real y'all. We've got feelings, we've got gripes, Power Claire has Power Hair and Beau Willimon is a Digimon. Then it's time to saddle up because we're headed to Lil' Hygge's Knitting Corner to discuss all the ins and outs of consuming media while knitting, crafting, or otherwise multitasking.

You'll also get to hear (in real time) the spontaneous creation of our new segment, Hatewatch Knitting Circle. Please join us in the joy of knitting by sharing your knitting patterns, projects, and favorite knitting television! It's Lil' Hygge approved, wholesome fun on this podcast.

May at Netflix and RomComducation Part 1

April Showers bring May Netflix Originals. Or something. Netflix decided to release all of their originals in one month so we decided to talk about it before the month was over. We've got Pavlov's Netflix and Hulu branded tin foil hats. Next, we begin Kirstie's RomComducation with an overview of some of the key Foundational and Quintessential RomComs. Kirstie muddles through all her feelings and misconceptions of the genre and winds up doing Journey covers and Kelsey gets lost in time and space. It's a pretty productive conversation. This will be a multi-episode series so get hype!

We take you through sex-farce-McCarthyism allegories, alien take overs, chicken burrito heists, and a series of running dog poop jokes. WE HAVE TO FIND OUT WHO KILLED WHO, WHERE, WITH WHAT!

Spoilers and Hatewatch Analog

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!! That's right folks, this week we're tackling a MAJOR PROBLEM IN SOCIETY. That problem is spoilers, and much like the conversation in Episode 2 about cable, Kirstie and Kelsey will come to an awkward impasse because these crazy kids just don't live the same life. Just another sign of these, our divisive, modern times. Then for something completely different, we attempt our first Hatewatch Analog, a joyous hatewatch of non-media life happenings. This time, it's office supplies.....because that's a thing people care about we guess. It's 15 minutes of all of our feels about pens, notebooks, binders, and everything else you can find down at the local Dunder Mifflin.

Catastrophe and Characters You Hate

This episode contains a lot of soul searching, deep shit, and our feelings about human emotions. In the first lesson of Kelsey's Rom Com curriculum, we watch Catastrophe and revel in its Britishness, saltiness, and joyfulness. Then, we talk about characters you're intended to hate and what it means to like or hate characters. We cover ground from the HGTV Prestige Russel Crowe blockbuster Almost Famous, to Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, You're The Worst, Girls, and many other properties in between. It's basically a cityscape of properties with hate-able characters, and we round the whole thing out with a deep exploration of our most human vulnerabilities. We also finally created the Hatewatch With Us Drinking Game to make these episodes a little higher stakes. PS: We know Almost Famous is actually by Cameron Crowe. Shut up.

Better Call Reboots and Revivals

We've got vocabulary lessons, cinematography lessons, the complete history of reboots, revivals, and Vince Gilligan's television empire, a Kirstie/Kelsey Origin Story, thoughts on vertical integration, and so much more! Friendly reminder that season three of Better Call Saul is a thing, so get hype!

We've got a throw back to Anastasia, we hatewatch the reboot of Beauty and the Beast, and we get to Hatewatch Kelsey's Joy in celebration of the announcement of NBC's Great British Bake Off knock-off, The Handmade Project. This takes us on a journey through films sets, gender roles, casting, bad CGI, and all our Comfort TV feels. So saddle up your miniature horses, Lil' Hygge is taking this dog and pony show on the road.

What Fresh Hell Is This?

This week is all about Kelsey settling scores. First, she takes a bullet for us all while taking Buzzfeed to task over NBC's new show (and falsely advertised Parks and Rec placebo) Trial and Error. Then, she challenges Kirstie's assertions that she knows anything about network television with a new game segment, conveniently timed as a spring TV preview.

Tiny House Hunters and Hatewatch BYOB

In this episode we split the Hatewatch Difference. First, Kelsey explores a hatewatch staple, the Prestige HBO Drama Tiny House Hunters. We cover all the bases including yurts, millennial humor, and a Tiny House Hunters drinking game. Then we enter Kelsey's fear landscape with a Hatewatch BYOB, a segment where we each get to bring something to the table potluck style. In this case, The Bachelor serves as the stand in for that shitty friend who always brings PBR, and while Kirstie fails to justify or otherwise expand upon any of her original talking points, we do get pretty deep into some weird shit.

Cord Cutting and Anastasia

Today we quietly ignore our bad internet connection in order tackle a major point of contention in our friendship: Kirstie doesn't watch cable but Kelsey does! So spicy. In this episode, Kirstie fails to argue anything better than "I'm cheap" and Kelsey fails to argue anything better than "I like cable". Then, we celebrate the announcement of Matt Weiner/Weiner's live action Anastasia reboot by revisiting the 1997 animated classic (and Kirstie spends the whole segment misstating the year very confidently). We discuss ball gowns, our One True Dimitri, and our gratitude that this film has returned to Netflix.

Welcome to this amateur media podcast where we hatewatch our way through the good, the bad, and the beautiful across media platforms.
