The latest Geek Girl Riot talks about the healing emotion of film, TV, and books (featuring some fab recommendations).
Finding Comfort in Reality TV
Sherin and Alex start off the show by talking about some of the reality shows they love—y’know, the ones that make ’em feel good about the world again. From slowly melting into Blown Away to embracing the hot mess of Nailed It!, there’s plenty to smile about (and plenty of shows to add to your binge-watch list).
TV & Movies that Make Our Hearts Go Boom
Next up, our Rioters trade off on the new movies and TV that have been making their hearts happy. Their list has it all—thrilling trash-stache action, murder mysteries, even the OG zaddy Jeff Goldblum—so get into it.
Books are Our First Love
