Angela reunites with Valerie and Tatiana after an extended hiatus to talk expectations for Incredibles 2 (0:40) and our feelings on Netflix trying to take on the world of Kdramas (10:35). We then preview the upcoming Korean remake of Life on Mars (20:28) before discussing how American TV should bring back
miniseries and anthologies (29:00). Finally, we give the shortest reviews ever on recent movie releases: Rampage, Krystal and A Quiet Place (36:00).
Valerie is back alongside Tatiana to talk all things Marvel, this time with an in-depth squee session over Captain America: Civil War. We discuss everything from our burning hatred of the Steve/Sharon story to our deep love of the Steve/Bucky friendship and the curious balance required in Tony's point of view.
Pop A La Carte decided to try something new with this week's podcast(s), separating into two shorter episodes about few topics. First up, Jessica and Tatiana tackle The Magicians' third season finale - and really the whole third season as a whole. Check it out and let us know what you think!
Valerie and Tatiana go through every gritty The 100, Siren, Constantine, Agents of SHIELD and Black Lightning moment of WonderCon (1:15) before wondering about Fox's decision-making skills in X-Men vs. Darkest Minds (28:20). Valerie previews Starz's Howard's End and BBC America's Killing Eve (34:31) before diving into the Westworld trailer (43:22). Finally, we go through all our Age of Ultron (48:07) and Ant-Man (1:06:27) before introducing a phone interview with Alberto Rosende from Shadowhunters (1:16:38).
Valerie and Tatiana preview our Wondercon experience (1:10), continue our discussion of Jessica Jones season 2 (11:00), talk Black Panther's continued success and Infinity War teases (31:30), rewatch Guardians of the Galaxy (50:00), discuss Starz's upcoming Spanish Princess (1:16:40) and finally share some interviews for
The Terror (1:24:00).
Bryan joins Valerie and Tatiana at the Pop A La Carte podcast once more to discuss several items of note. Ava Duvernay will be directing a New Gods movie for DC, so the state of the EU must be acknowledged once more (0:43). Deadpool 2 had some confusing reactions after a test screening (13:55), while Ready Player One seems poised to lower all our expectations (25:00). Finally, we talk about some of out Jessica Jones season 2 feels (38:00) and gush about Captain America: The Winter Soldier in our MCU rewatch (47:41).
Valerie, Tatiana and the ever-present yet ever-silent Matt reminisce about this year's uneventful Oscars (1:19) and discuss our more in-depth feelings about The Shape of Water now that it's been crowned the winner. Then we preview the upcoming AMC horror series The Terror before Valerie re-recommends her favorite British series, Endeavour (19:48). Tatiana gives a mini review of A Wrinkle In Time (30:45), which was actually quite a deal more endearing than many are suggesting. Finally, we continue our Marvel rewatch with the unfortunate entry Thor: The Dark World (41:00) and speculate about the sure to be awesome Infinity War (58:10).
Valerie and Tatiana have a hodgepodge of topics to cover today, starting from Westworld spilling Sweetwater secrets at SXSW next week and Mute being another one of Netflix's mistakes (1:00). Then we cover some interesting CW reboot casting news for Charmed, Sabrina and Roswell (8:00). We compare Joss Whedon stepping down from Batgirl and the state of the DCEU as a whole to the success of Black Panther (15:30) before finally diving into our Iron Man 3 rewatch (30:00). Finally, Tatiana explores the world of Vatanim Sensin, the good ship HiLeon and the power of shipping overall.
Valerie, Angela and Tatiana are joined by Corey to gush about Black Panther (1:10) and discuss the few criticisms we managed to scrounge up. Then we were markedly less enthused by the latest Ready Player One trailer (48:10), but Angela assuaged us with a recommendation for a Korean webseries called Long Time No See (1:00:40). Finally, we rewatched and re-discussed the first Avengers (1:05:30) movie for your listening pleasure.
Valerie and Tatiana are joined on the podcast by Bryan in order go through the Oscar-nominated movies that they've seen - specifically The Shape of Water and The Phantom Thread (0:27). We also discuss what introducing Benioff & Weiss to the Star Wars universe might mean (18:29) and then we breakdown our feelings on the latest Deadpool and Jessica Jones trailers (44:36). Our somewhat shortened rehashing of Thor and Captain America (1:03:10) is permissible because we actually enjoyed both, so what can you do? Finally, Valerie explains Netflix's newest German offering, Babylon Berlin (1:29:55) and then we leave you alone after one super-sized podcast.
