Episode 2.15: Everyone's a lawyer in Ally McBeal

Miniskirts. Singing. Spotless gender neutral toilets. Boston. Unrequited love. And an unnecessary fear of kissing. Yes, it's time to discuss late 90s TV icon, Ally McBeal. We discuss the fashion, the romance, the singing and the hijinks at Cage & Fish; from the now-mildly-disturbing behaviour of erstwhile beau, Billy, to the glory of Portia de Rossi's hair. Join the conversation:


Episode 2.14: Sabrina's chilling adventures as a teen witch and whatnot

It's a new then/now episode! We compare The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (streaming now on Netflix) with the Melissa Joan Hart 90's extravaganza, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. They're about the same character and yet, they are not the same. Watch along with Those Gals! We watched episodes 1 and 2 (Elaine) and 1-4 (Lynsay) of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina; and Season 1 episode 24 - 'Troll Bride'; Season 2 episode 2, 'Dummy for Love'; and Season 7 episodes 21 and 22, 'What a witch wants'...


Episode 2.13: Buffy the Vampire Slayer - What's that riff?

It's time to talk about "a show I used to watch with my dad" (Lynsay) or "the most important television series of all time" (Elaine): Buffy the Vampire Slayer. What are we, if not women up to a challenge? Passions are high, in what could easily have been a 17.5 hour episode but manages to boil down to a friendly chat and Elaine is already raging about all of the things she forgot to mention. Watch along with Those Gals - (kinda) referenced episodes (but TBH it's more of a general...

2.12 Dawson's Creek: Emotional manipulation on a grand scale

Are you emotionally ready for this? It's time to talk about a teen classic; a drama-filled, big-hearted, ground-breaking, sob-inducing show. That's right, it's time for Dawson's Creek. Joey's eyerolls. Pointless b characters. Romance. Jen. Boys being 'nice guys'. This one has it all and more. Join in the conversation: Watch along with Those Gals: Dawson's Creek Season 1, Episode 7: Detention Dawson's Creek Season 3, Episode 7: Escape from Witch Island Dawson's...


Episode 2.11: THIS is an ART Attack!

We're back back back again and talking about children's TV classic, ART ATTACK. It's wacky but not too wacky, 90s art fest television. We delve into the world of weird tricks with paint, the life of modern day Renaissance man Neil Buchanan, and whether we would actually create any of this stuff. Watch along with Those Gals: Art Attack season 3, episode 1 Art Attack season 8, episode 3 Art Attack season 10, episode 5 Join the conversation:


Episode 2.10: We're drawn to Most Haunted

Don your night vision goggles and look out for those orbs, it's a Those Gals investigation into paranormal reality show, Most Haunted. What was Derek Acorah really up to? Was Yvette Fielding's hair pretty good actually? Have you felt the influence of a spirit? Did you believe in any of the spine-chilling moments? And most importantly, what does Mary love? We discuss all this and more. Join the conversation:

Ep 2.7: Will you start the fans please! Crystal Maze - TV Gals

Another old school/new school episode this week as we look back on some classic Richard O'Brien Crystal Maze, vs Richard Ayoade Crystal Maze.

Episode 2.6 - This is where the magic happens - MTV Cribs - TV Gals

Delving into the history of MTV Cribs, the beloved show that took you right into the homes of celebrity guests. What did they have in their fridges? Who had the best home barber?

Episode 2.4 - Changing Rooms made me question my fundamental beliefs

We're back in the UK to talk about the DIY sensation that shook the nation in the late 90s and early 00s: Changing Rooms. This BBC classic was an interesting battle between neighbours, design, and the general idea of good taste. We love a bit of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, though. Come relive the many clashing colours, MDF panels, bizarre lighting choices and 'art'... Join the chat:


Episode 2.3 - Supergroup (plus Jason Bonham) - TV Gals

This week we delve even deeper into the murky depths of reality TV with the musical adventure that was VH1's 'Supergroup'. In the mid-2000s, four plucky survivors from the world of rock and metal, plus John Bonham's son, come together to create the ultimate SUPERGROUP in just 12 days. Can they do it? Will they ever find a name? Could they just not find another drummer? And do we care? All this and more... Join the conversation:


Episode 2.2: Trinny And Susannah and what not to treat people like - TV Gals

For this week's rewatch, we're stepping back to a time when the hemlines were floaty and the psychoanalysis was questionable. It can only be fashion heroines Trinny and Susannah of What Not to Wear fame. It's a cautionary tale of late 90s/early 00s 'fashion' and bullying. Come join the conversation!
