Ep. 166 – Saraband

Wait, you thought we were done with the adventures of Johan and Marianne? Didn’t you watch the final episode of Scenes from a Marriage? That was clearly way too optimistic, am I right? So, roughly thirty years (and some weird in-universe aging shenanigans) later, how do you think our (un)happy couple is doing? Let’s find out in Ingmar Bergman’s final film: Saraband.

Ep. 165 – Scenes from a Marriage, Ch. 5 & 6

This week, we bring the sage of Johan and Marianne to a close. Will they reconcile? Is marriage truly the strongest bond on earth? Can Ingmar Bergman produce a happy ending? Find out in Scenes from a Marriage, episodes 5 and 6.

Ep. 164 – Scenes from a Marriage, Ch. 3 & 4

Another week, another reminder that all that is warm and rosy is destined to wither and fade. Sorry, we rejoin Ingmar Bergman this week for the continuing tale of Marianne and Johan. Will their marriage survive? Will they find happiness? Find out in Scenes from a Marriage, episodes 3 and 4.

Ep. 163 – Scenes from a Marriage, Ch. 1 & 2

Marriage. It can be pretty trying. But leave it to Ingmar Bergman to take a deeper look at this wonderful social institution and leave us with a “realistic” depiction of individuals growing and changing. Join us for the first two episodes of Scenes from a Marriage.

OC23 – Always Be My Maybe

Best believe, I watched Keanu Reeves in a Netflix Movie that was way better than Speed.

Join us for Always Be My Maybe.

OC 22 – Midsommar

Dr. Zed is moving to Ireland, which is…kind of near Sweden, so he thought the podcast would take a look at the ethnographic documentary, Midsommar. After all, what could be more exciting than a group of graduate students ardently pursuing their super-niche theses projects, right?! That’s enough to label this a terrifying horror movie.

Ep. 162 – Jubilee

Queen Elizabeth I travels in time to a punk dystopian 1970s England. Do you really need to know anything else? It’s bonkers, but is it good? Find out as we cover Jubilee.

Ep. 161 – Valley of the Dolls

Sometimes a life of glitz and glamour might lead to utter ruin. Join us as we look at the dark side of Hollywood and the perils of show business in Valley of the Dolls.

Ep. 114 (Re-Release) – Barry Lyndon

A day late and a euro short. Dr. Zed is relocating to the Emerald Isle, so forgive him for being a bit tardy in uploading an episode. However, in honor of the move to Ireland, we’re going to re-post our episode on the Stanley Kubrick classic, Barry Lyndon.

OC 21 – Booksmart

What happens when you’ve played it safe throughout high school? No, you don’t join the Breakfast Club, but you do get up to some hijinks. Join us for Booksmart.
