Nutty Bites: Gotham – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Gotham should have been called GCPD, too many people who watch expect a Batman story, and that isn’t what this show is about. They would have been better off not even including Bruce Wayne (though we would have not has the most awesome Alfred). This is Jim Gordon’s story more than anything. I paired this with Pho because it is magical and sometimes medicinal.
Nutty Bites: Absolutely Fabulous the Movie – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Absolutely Fabulous was a favorite show from way back and I have always loved the hilariously awful duo of Patsy and Edwina. When I heard there was a movie coming out my only thought was “Please don’t be bad.” It wasn’t, it was everything I might have expected it to be. It is awful and full of pop culture jokes, the AbFab duo is clinging to anything trendy and getting it 100% wrong, as always. It is hilarious. It’s not a mockery of anyone one real person but a mockery of the idea of chasing the latest thing I think. I paired this with champagne cupcakes with 24K gold dust on top of the champagne butter cream, mmmm.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Fozzi Forester. (I will only call him Fozzi, the name he preferred, not his birth name.) He will be forever missed by now one of the patron saints of Nutty Bites.
Nutty Bites: The Mindy Project – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
The Mindy Project is such a fun show that I talked more about how fun it is and never really explained the show. Oops, well it’s about a woman who is a OB/GYN and the people in her office and her love life. It’s a refreshing take on the medical drama trope and while sometimes I can get annoyed by things on the show I think it strikes a good balance between humor, satire, and being responsible. I paired this with a donut, but I also rambled a bit on making butternut squash risotto the cheating way because that’s what I made tonight.
I decidedly didn’t talk about Dunkirk for Dinner and a Movie, but I did talk about why it didn’t get a Dinner and a Movie episode.
Nutty Bites: Ant-Man – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Ant-Man wasn’t marketed properly I thought. It just didn’t seem interesting or any fun. Yet when I finally watched the movie I was impressed with how much fun it was. I think this is a lesson that Marvel and other movie houses need to pay attention to, hire comedic actors to play your heroes and the viewers will feel connected to them.
Nutty Bites: Deadpool – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Deadpool and Chimichangas, is there anything more perfect? I don’t think so. This movie is a perfect example of breaking all of hollywood’s rules and succeeding. I wish the movie industry would take their cue here and have fans make these films and make it for the fans. Not for the masses.
