Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed episode:
00:36 Dancing with the Stars: Terri discovered that she can enjoy a contemporary routine, but neither of us enjoyed the very rushed double elimination that ended the Halloween episode. Mentioned: Season 1 star Kelly Monaco's controversial win and super-sexy dancing; Team FranneyPack's adorable Facebook Live video; that week with no elimination that we couldn't quite remember.
16:30 The West Wing: Season 4 continued with episode 3, "College Kids," which is somewhat unremarkable (except for Allison Janney's really toned abs). Mentioned: The West Wing Weekly podcast ep.
24:45 Challenge Round: The Good Place: Catherine challenged Terri to watch the first two episodes of season 1 of The Good Place. It turned out that even knowing the big spoiler about season 1 did not spoil our enjoyment of this very funny show.
For next week, Terri challenged Catherine to watch the 1984 movie All of Me, starring Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin (whom we are now enjoying as Debbie Fiderer on The West Wing). We'll watch that, West Wing's "The Red Mass," and Dancing with the Stars trio night.
