Jordan Peele's 'Us'

EBummer news, Be Good and Rewatch It fans: we’re going on a hiatus. We’ll be back. Probably. Somebody's gotta rewatch all of Neon Genesis Evangelion, right? But even if this is our final episode, we’re going out with a banger. Cado, Austin, Natalie, Rob, and Patrick recently spent time in a theater with the latest horror film from writer/director Jordan Peele, Us, a movie that’s impossible to watch without having a strong reaction; it’s a movie that will not be ignored.

Jordan Peele's 'Us'

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Finale

E​Caution Warnings: ​We talk about assault and sexual violence over the course of this episode Be not alarmed, listener, that this episode contains any further renewal of the ​Pride and Prejudice ​podcast series. But many different letters were laid to our charge over the course of this re-watch, and now honor demands that Austin, Natalie, and Rob be allowed to respond. We have a very serious conversation about Lydia's storyline and the challenges it poses in any adaptation or in any attempt to modernize it. We also also get some excellent food for thought about neurodivergent characters in Austen's work and in this particular adaptation of ​Pride and Prejudice. ​Speaking of food, we finally learn what that "sausage pastry" was from the first episode. Thanks once again for listening to this absurdly detailed, loving, and ridiculous return to a landmark TV series. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Finale

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Part 5

E​Here we are, huh? The last episode of the 1995 BBC ​Pride and Prejudice​​, and therefore the very last episode of our Be Good and Rewatch It series, which of course will conclude next week because we ran long and broke the letters section out into its own podcast! God and Waypoint aren't done with you yet, Mr. Darcy and Lizzie Bennett! First, however, we have to get these two problematic faves into a marriage knot... and see Lizzie finally square-up with Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who has condescended to get her ass kicked. We also delve into the mystery of who tipped Lady Catherine about Darcy's attachment to Elizabeth, and consider our final verdicts on Mr. Bennett. We also talk about the more realistic, restrained portrayals of the BBC adaptation with the more tempestuous approach taken by the 2005 film, which tries to render the interior monologues of the novel into action on film.

BBC's Emma (2009)

EWith their co-hosts out of action this week, Rob and Austin take a break from the team's ongoing deep dive​ into the BBC's 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice ​in favor of something altogether different... a deep dive into the BBC's 2009 adaptation of Jane Austen's ​Emma​. They dig into the story's class satire, the startling chemistry between leads Romola Garai​ and Jonny Lee Miller, and their own romantic missteps. And they do all that in just ​one​ recording, making this a true Waypoint achievement. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

BBC's Emma (2009)

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995)- Part 4

EThings are going well, a little too well, for Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. Which means it's time for Lydia Bennett to stop being a supporting player in this comedy and become a star in her own romantic drama. Today on the first part of ourPride and Prejudicerewatch finale, we discuss the fatalist snark of Caroline Bingley, Lizzie's growing maturity and awareness, and what Georgiana Darcy reveals about this story. But the biggest topic of discussion is Lydia's disastrous elopement with Mr. Wickham. How do we approach a story that treats as a scandal the sexual agency of a teenage girl, and underplays the predatory aspect of Wickham's conduct? If the entire subplot is built on an outdated, misogynist foundation, is it still fair to find Lydia to be a loathsome heel by the end of it?

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Part 3

EFor BGRW We might as well face this head-on. There's no hiding from it. We spend an hour of this podcast discussing, in detail, our discomfort and ambivalence about the way our heroine, Elizabeth Bennett, begins to turn all the way around on Fitzwilliam Darcy when she sees his mansion. Is she being influenced by crass material considerations? What do we make of this weird, almost mythologized connection between Darcy and his estate at Pemberley? We discuss Romanticism, Transcendentalism, and Austin's slashfic about Peter Parker and Darcy. We also dig into both the creepiness of Wickham, and the ways he is still misjudged and his dangerousness under-rated even after his character has been revealed, plus Mr. Bennett's maddening complacency. We learn Natalie has trouble with imagery and metaphor, Rob is a bootlicking landlord apologist, and Austin has a worrying thing about wolves.

BBC Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Part 2

EThis continues to get out of hand. Once again we got in too deep, so our second episode of the BBC ​Pride and Prejudice ​only covers the third episode of the miniseries. But who can blame us! As connoisseurs of human folly, we are eager to savor such delights as these: Charlotte Lucas's marriage to Mr. Collins and what it is meant to say in the original novel, versus Lucy Scott's decides to portray in her reading of the character. Mr. Wickham's increasingly oily charm and aggressive self-pity. Lady Catherine, in which we get a taste of what happens if you took Lizzie's and Mrs. Bennett's worst possible traits and poured money over them. Col. Fitzwilliam's catastrophic assistance to Darcy. And finally, Darcy's own attempts at balancing romance with radical honesty.

BBC's Pride and Prejudice (1995) - Part 1

EIn what was supposed to be an episode covering the first half of the six-part series, Rob, Natalie, and Danielle spend two hours breaking down the first three-quarters of the first episode. Then Rob and Natalie reconvene to discuss the second episode. The third episode, our original stopping point, is completely forgotten! It will have to wait for next week. But don't get discouraged, there's a lot to dig into here. Who do we find ourselves strangely sympathetic to in this telling of Jane Austen's masterpiece? Mr. Bennett: avuncular dad or secret villain of the entire story? Is Lizzie actually that good a sister? How did we miss the red flags with Wickham? Is Matthew Macfadyen's awkward and conflicted Darcy in the 2005 film a more convincing portrayal than the intensely magnetic Darcy portrayed by Colin Firth? And finally, what are you supposed to do with Mr. Collins? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Clueless

EContent Warning for discussion of incest, sexual harassment, and relationship age gaps. Clueless ​was one of the most successful movies of 1995, and also proved to have one of the most important legacies. A modern adaptation of Jane Austen's ​Emma​, ​Clueless ​was a comedy of manners for children of the 1990s... or at least those who dreamed of what life might be like if you were that young, that rich, and that insulated from consequences. But does its tongue-in-cheek portrayal of young women and their social lives hold up today? Did the media that came after ​Clueless ​and often imitated it, like ​Cruel Intentions ​and later ​Gossip Girl​, break from the film's philosophy or merely unearth a darkness that was already there? So is Paul Rudd like her step-brother, and isn't that kind of weird? Danielle, Natalie, and Rob dig into all of it on this episode of ​Be Good and Rewatch It​.
