This week on Geek Girl Riotour Rioters gather to share all the shows and movies they’ve been watching. Get ready to update your watchlist!
Superheroes, Supertech, and Survivors Our Heroic Trio return for a She Said / He Said / She Said, kicking off with some of the TV shows that they’ve been digging into lately. Philip gives his take on the new season of Designated Survivor, while Sherin and Alex give you a spoiler-free tease of Jessica Jones S3 (out Friday!). The trio also talk about the incredible depth of the first episode of Black Mirror S5, “Striking Vipers”.
Monsters, Music, and Mutants Julian jumps on the airwaves with Sherin to dive into Godzilla: King of Monsters and why you might enjoy it with some context. Julian also sings the praises of Rocketman before coming to the defense of Dark Phoenix.
The ones that moved us Our Heroic Trio come back in to talk about the shows and movies that have truly moved them. First up: When They See Us, the incredibly heartbreaking portrayal of the Central Park Five, as told by Ava DuVernay and Netflix. Then our Rioters giggle over all the things they love about Always Be My Maybe (and point out a few things y’all need to be aware of). Sherin says of the movie:
“There’s a lot I want to say about Always Be My Maybe but it’s mostly squealing and giggling in glee. Neither predictable or clichéd, instead ABMM hits the tropes which makes it an enjoyable character driven rom-com that I, personally, loved.”
Philip also gives a spoiler-free sneak-peek of Shaft (if you can handle it) before Sherin and Alex raise a glass of the finest wine to Good Omens.
