Best Pop Culture Happy Hour Episodes
I’m still shocked at what happened last night at the Oscars. If you’re up for Best Actor, stay classy. And he used his speech time to kind of apologize, but not really. And I like how people are comparing this to Kayne, Will smith wasn’t escorted out, does this show the flaws of Hollywood? What do you guys think?
"Blunt, but toothless" Yes, finally my feelings about Don't Look Up are put into words. Entertaining enough while I watched, but not as profound as its makers imagine it to be.
Loved Squid Game. I was gripped from the beginning to the end, and managed to binge it with my husband over the course of 3 days. I agree with the critics here that I would prefer to see a prequel as a second season as opposed to a continuation of the story!
Interesting discussion about this new Hulu show about podcasting! They chat about the cast chemistry and the podcast making scenes 😂
Melissa Braden another great discussion and break down of the Britney Spears case - hopefully we will see some progress at today's court hearing!
