Settle in for a remix reloaded episode, packed full of some of Geek Girl Riot’s fave binge-watches of 2020.

Dash & Lily, Jingle Jangle, Alex Rider
Pour yourself some eggnog and get festive with Netflix’s Dash & Lily. Sherin and Alex tell you whythis warm & fuzzy YA romance needs to be at the top of your Christmas [watch] list. Then they get even more spirited with Jingle Jangle, a Netflix Christmas film starring a Black family that’s sure to become a magical holiday classic. To close out the segment, Sherin switches from festive cheer to mystery thrills to talk about Alex Rider, the IMDb TV + Amazon adaptation of Anthony Horowitz’s beloved spy saga.

All Anime, All the Time
Julian jumps on with Sherin to chat all things anime. They show some love to Lupin III: The First and introduce you to the (in)famous character. They also hype up Kimetsu No Yuigon: Mugen Train which is coming next year to make you squeal in delight. Julian then gives a shoutout to Digimon Adventure, before the dynamic duo break down the recent Webtoons x Crunchyroll team up.

Ted Lasso, Song Exploder, The Forty-Year-Old Version
Alex returns to talk with Sherin about Ted Lasso, the sparkling new comedy series starring Jason Sudeikis on Apple TV+. Then they share their feels about Song Exploder, the enthralling Netflix music documentary based on the popular podcast of the same name (S2 is out Dec 15). To close us out, our Rioters tell you why you need to watch Radha Blanks gorgeously made Netflix film The Forty-Year-Old Version.
