Weekly Roundup: A Special Guest, “Only Murders in the Building,” “The Afterparty,” Animal Fights, and School Strategies
On our latest weekly roundup, we have a special guest star. Nicole is back for a cameo appearance!
What we're watching: On Only Murders in the Building, "The White Room" was not about expensive Manhattan real estate, but about stage fright (and there was a catchy song). On The Afterparty, "Feng" brought some surprising subtlety from Ken Jeong, even in the midst of a lot of TikTok videos.
Catherine's library find this week is another nonfiction series for kids that she found disturbing--actually, there are at least two series in the same vein, so we have concerns. Mentioned: "The Wolverines" on Saturday Night Live from October 11, 1975, and whether gophers and groundhogs are the same critters.
In the archives, we revisit chats on our best school strategies (September 2, 2021), back-to-school emotions (September 3, 2020), and what was left out of the parenting manual (August 28, 2015).
We'll be back with a new episode next Tuesday. Our TV watch will cover S2 E9 of The Afterparty ("Isabel") and S3 E5 of Only Murders in the Building (“Ah, Love!”). If you miss hearing from us every single day, the archives await you!
