This week we're taking on the new AMC miniseries, "The Little Drummer Girl," directed by Park Chan-wook, based on the novel by John Le Carré. The miniseries stars Florence Pugh, Alexander Skarsgard, and Michael Shannon.

Not really, but come join us for this wild ride of colorful maxi dresses and...

The second half of our conversation on "Lars and the Real Girl" is here, and we're going in on sex doll/robot culture! What do these dolls say about us?

And if so, is he single? We wrestle with it all while still keeping it cute. It's kind of amazing how cute we manage to be at all times! Listen now! If you...
