Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:54 The Big Sick: Catherine entered an actual movie theater to see this movie, which is a delightful take on the cross-cultural rom-com.
07:30 John from Cincinnati: Episodes 7 and 8 were a bit more traditional, but this series is as weird as ever.
18:26 Challenge Round: Amélie: Catherine challenged Terri to watch this film that's set halfway around the world from John's IB (in Paris) and 180 degrees different in style and tone. Terri found it twee but worth a watch. It reminded her of the TV series Pushing Daisies, so for next week's challenge, we'll watch that shows pilot ... entitled "Pie-lette" (did someone mention "twee"?).
Next week, we'll also return to The West Wing with "The Black Vera Wang" and continue with the final two episodes of John from Cincinnati ("His Visit: Day Eight" and "His Visit: Day Nine").
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
