No dildos! (RENT live/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

Judith and Leah discuss RENT: Live on Fox. They'll tackle such questions as: Why doesn't Roger realize that One Song Glory IS A GREAT SONG? Why did Entertainment Weekly drag Valentina so hard? Does pasta with meatless balls actually taste the same (if you close your eyes)? WHY NO DILDOS? Also on this episode: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tour! Not getting to the factory until the end of act 1! Weird decisions on which children are played by children! Nothing is catchy! How can we defend it???? (spoiler: ummmmm..... )

Belle, Gaston, and the Great Comet of 1812

What do Waitress, the Great Comet, and Beauty and the Beast all have in common? I'm not sure, which is why it was so hard to find a name for this episode! (If you can find a connection, please please write in. There's got to be something. Maybe relating to pies?) Anyway, today's ep hassome discussion of Waitress and Great Comet. Then, Judith and Leah are joined by special guest Dagney to discuss the live-action Beauty and the Beast! Hilarity ensues
