Hype Podcast

Episode #135 – Sit-Coms In Real Life

Hosted by Pamela Gocobachi, Marama Whyte

February 27, 2017

Join Marama and Pam for a movie news heavy edition of Hype Podcast! This week, the ladies continue their discussion on the upcoming release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast, and also get into some news about Star Wars, King Arthur and more!

Show Notes
– In How We Hype, Pam’s been all about the non fiction and talks about reading Anatomy of a Song. She also urges listeners to check out Planet Earth II. Marama, on the other hand, has been loving George Watsky’s How To Ruin Everything.
– We kick off this movie-centric episode of Hype with some Disney news! The House of Mouse has released a clip of Emma Watson singing “Belle,” and both Pam and Marama have some thoughts!
– We might not be sold on Beauty and the Beast, but the same can’t be said for Mary Poppins Returns— especially now that they’ve cast the legendary Angela Lansbury!
– Donald Glover and James Earl Jones have both joined the cast of The Lion King and Pam is totally here for it!
– On the Star Wars front, we’ve got our first look at the characters from The Last Jedi. There’s also a new cast photo from the upcoming Han Solo movie, but there seems to be one glaring thing missing.
– Jennifer Garner has joined the cast of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and Marama cautions everyone who hasn’t read the book to read it sooner rather than later!
– There’s a new trailer for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur out and both girls have some thoughts!
– Marama gives us the scoop on the upcoming Dark Phoenix X-Men movie
– This episode’s Patreon submitted topic has the girls reminiscing over some of their favorite moments at fandom events
– In TV Show of the Week, Pam FINALLY gets around to talking bout THAT episode of Jane The Virgin.
– We wrap up the show by going through your listener feedback!
