GWYGH, Ep. 078: Hot Mess

Did you know that the hit song Mr. Brightside by The Killers has stayed on the Top 100 charts in the UK since its release in 2004? Kate and Janine revisit the band's debut album Hot Fuss (2004), including creating the definitive ranking of songs from Bop Lite to Bopgasm. Don't miss another installment of Janine's embarrassing middle school memories!

GWYGH, Ep. 071: Thanks for the Bean!

We have been on a bit of a hiatus and we know you missed us -- but it was for a good reason! Janine went up to Chicago to visit Kate for a few days and they got up to a lot of fun things. Seeing Janine's favorite movie BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER (1999) was a very special treat -- and the topic of this episode. Happy pride month to all of you! We love you!

Thanks to Paul Ryberg of Minute Pod and Plug-in Missing for our awesome theme song.

GWYGH, Ep. 030: Baked Potato Earth

Janine offers Kate the choice between two delightfully awful science fiction movies: The Core (2003) or Day After Tomorrow (2004), both movies wherein the Earth is trying to kill itself and intrepid scientists have to find a way to survive. Also, thinly veiled political criticism? The 2000s were weird.

Thanks to Paul Ryberg from Plug-In Missing for our incredibly catchy theme song!

GWYGH, Ep. 027: A Super Cool Skeleton

Kate and Janine celebrate the anniversary of Guess What You're Gonna Hate? by watching the movie that ought to be the tagline of our podcast: National Treasure (2004). We also discuss what treasures we'd hope to find as well as the future of National Treasure 3.

GWYGH, Ep. 025: Spiritually Transmitted Disease

Another spooky week of October means another spooky movie. Why not watch the Thai horror movie Shutter (2004) -- oh, what? You watched the US remake, Shutter (2008)? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?! Kate and Janine compare the two plots and discuss their survival plans if ghosts started showing up in their selfies.

GWYGH, Ep. 021: Vocal Tots

Do you ever want to recapture the feeling of watching something that perhaps shaped your prepubescent humor and appreciation for tater tots? Well, unless you have a time machine, it's not possible. Keep your nostalgia goggles firmly on and reminisce about Napoleon Dynamite (2004) with us, a film we refused to rewatch because we loved it too much. 

GWYGH, Ep. 020: Gross Pair of Converses

Let me tell you something about Mean Girls (2004). It was an iconic movie for us in middle school. I know, right? So embarrassing. I don't even... whatever. So then in eighth grade, I saw my first PG-13 movie, and the quotes permeated my sense of humor growing up. And now I guess Kate Harlow from Subverted Tropes is here to let us quote this movie into oblivion! We discuss cliques, questionable fashion choices, PG-13 ratings, and how formative this comedy is for most Millennials.

GWYGH, Ep. 019: Man Babies

In 2000s media, men were encouraged to be immature and irresponsible, because having fun beats growing up any day. Long-time listener, first time guest Darrell Winfree offers his wife Janine the choice between two terrible 2000s bro comedies: Saving Silverman (2001) or Without a Paddle (2004).

GWYGH, Ep. 011: Lucy and the Spy, With Diamonds (Janine's Notes)

A few episodes ago, Kate and Janine watched of D.E.B.S. (2004), wherein a secret test hidden in the SAT is used to select the perfect spy. This LGBT action/comedy/romance/spy movie is a wonderful film full of fluff and meetcutes and perhaps one of the only movies we review that we'll recommend you watch. The following is Janine's notes while she was watching the movie.

GWYGH, Ep. 014: Radio Requests

At a listener's request, Kate and Janine watch Saved! (2004), a satirical teen comedy starring Mandy Moore, Jena Malone, and Macaulay Culkin. Turns out it's hard to stay on topic when the movie is legitimately enjoyable and worthwhile, so there's an absolute mishmash of elements in this episode, including: censorship via hiphop airhorns, mistaken identity via email, repeated requests on the radio for Smooth by Santana featuring Rob Thomas and Matchbox 20, and walking out of movie theaters.

GWYGH, Ep. 13: BasketBlades (TM)

Picture this: you're at a yard sale, browsing a selection of DVDs, when you're faced with a choice: Secondhand Lions (2003) or Dodgeball (2004). They're marked $3 dollars each, and you only have $2.83 in assorted coins jangling in your pocket. Your hands are shaking. You know you can't take them both home with you. You'll barely be able to haggle the price down to buy one and still have a quarter for that waterlogged paperback copy of "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey that you've been eyeing. What do you do? Which do you choose? Well, we can't answer that for you. That's your own journey. When Kate made the same offer to Janine, however, she decided to go with Dodgeball, a mid-2000s comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller.

GWYGH, Ep. 004: Hostile Work Environment

In the very first episode of 2018, Janine and Kate discuss the absolute plethora of early 2000s media centering around romance in the White House as they consider their hardest decision yet: whether to watch First Daughter (2004) or Chasing Liberty (2004), two movies that are nearly identical in plot.
