POP58 Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Happy Independence Day! Our pop surgeons are celebrating America's birthday by going back to the 20th Century, back to a simpler time. A time where you could believe the newspapers.

She'll tell you all about it in this week's episode.

Taking a deep dive into one of the most beloved shows, the pop surgeons discuss the highs and lows, the good and the bad and why people are a sucker for a sad ending.


POP45 Sliding Doors

In this week's episode, Eric and Stacey talk about "what ifs". What if, on a certain road, you took a left instead of a right. What if, on a certain day, you stopped for ice cream instead of going straight home. Sliding Doors, from 1997, looks at this very idea of how small decisions or small moments can change the future and our lives. Before GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow was an actress, and this one was right in the middle of her heyday, highlighting her ability to do a good British accent.

Eric and Stacey take a look at the body of work of an actor we lost in 2016: the late Alan Rickman. A brilliant stage and TV actor, Alan Rickman burst into our hearts as the villain Hans Gruber in Die Hard in 1988, and until his untimely passing we have been able to see a man with the widest range in the most diverse of parts in any genre you can imagine. Whether he is playing a hero or a villain, you will most certainly be entertained by one of the greatest acting talents of our generation.

Eric and Stacey talk about the hugely binged The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Netflix, and why comedy is indeed very hard... for her... in the 1950s. If you haven't seen it yet, maybe this quick intro will spur you on. If you are one of the bingers... listen along and decide if you agree with them and their take on this award-winning show.
