On this episode of Geek Girl Riot we talk the internet #showdowns happening on the internet and share some new TV shows we’re loving.

Who Ya With?
We’re in the age of Twitter beef, brand showdowns, and #shade-matches. Sherin, Philip, and Monique dig into the latest wars happening between Popeyes vs. Chick-fil-A over the best chicken sandwich, Disney vs. Sony over the future of Spider-Man, and even Monique vs. Philip (that’s how heated this gets, y’all)

Turn Up the TV Magic
Cancel all your plans, we have your Friday binge-sesh sorted. Carnival Row hits Amazon Prime on Friday, while Netflix is dropping The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and Styling Hollywood this week. That’s a whole lotta magical! Sherin, Sarah, and Alex give you a sneak-preview and a long list of reasons why your weekend just got awesome.

The NFL + What’s On Our Minds
Now it’s back to the showdowns: Jay-Z just struck a massive entertainment deal with the NFL and it’s causing the internet to melt the F down. Some people argue that it goes against Colin Kaepernick’s incredibly important protests against the NFL (by the way, Kaepernick still doesn’t have a new contract). Sherin, Philip, and Monique discuss the pros and cons of what the deal means for the sport industry. Then they squeal over Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba which is a new anime they’re loving, now available on Hulu or Crunchyroll. To close us out, Monique shares a wonderful story about her son, Panic! at the Disco, and why “Dancing’s Not a Crime”.
