CP Episode 73: That Could Have Ended Differently

This week our heroes discuss a bunch of shows that they really liked except for that one little flaw...the way it ended. Sometimes we fall in love with a show in the beginning but the route that they go later leaves us behind. Or sometimes the writers start to slack in the last couple of seasons. Or, they may try to pull together a conclusion to a story and it just doesn't sit right with us. These are some of those shows in our opinions.

CP Episode 70: Reviews and Scandals

This week Shawn and Rick were joined by journalist and author Christopher DeFilippis. They talked about what's happening on this season of The Flash and then have a little spoiler-free discussion of Thor: Raganrok.

They also had a pretty deep discussion about what is happening in Hollywood with the sexual assault and child molestation allegations that have been coming down left and right. We will warn you that this episode is a little heavier than usual so we'll perfectly understand if you want to wait until next week when we talk about something a little more fun. But, talking about it is the only way to keep things from going back to the way they were before.

CP Episode 64: That Girl That Was In That Thing

In this episode Shawn, John, and Rick went back to complete the thought from the "That Guy" episode a few weeks ago. This time they talk about some wonderful actresses that have been in tons and tons of things that you've seen many, many times. These are women that are known for being able to play an array of characters, but they're not usually the leading lady. Because of that, you may not have ever learned their names. But their performances have definitely left and impact on us.

CP Episode 63: Flip The Script


This week Shawn, John, and Rick take a look at some famous characters in film and TV from another angle. Maybe the villain wasn't such a bad guy after all. Maybe the hero was really wrong the whole time. Maybe the monster was just misunderstood.
