The Unscripted Episode

It's been a while since we've uploaded an episode but we are back in full force! Since there hasn't been anything interesting in theaters for the past few weeks, we decided to just sit down, talk and record. The results were... interesting. Our unscripted episode covers a wide range of topics, from Maria's opinion of Vin Diesel to Adonis's strange Netflix selection, to Bridget's love of Shark Week. We didn't have a particulat topic in mind so we just decided to talk about movies, our...


Ant-Man and the Wasp and Sicario 2 Reviewed

In this week's episode of Part-Time Characters, the girls get together to talk about the latest summer sequels, Ant-Man and the Wasp and Sicario Day of the Soldado. Funnily enough, they both give the same rating to these two very different movies. Bridget takes over the Marvel part of the podcast as she reviews Ant-Man and the Wasp, starring Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp. They discuss why Marvel decided to release Ant Man after Infinity War and not before. Will...

Supernatural Movies [Retro Reviews]

This week Part-Time Characters goes back in time to review some classic horror/supernatural movies. We did our best to keep a brave face. It's another special episode of Retro Reviews, where we each pick a movie we haven't seen but we have been meaning to watch for quite some time. Then we all discuss them and decide if they live up to the hype. One of us watched the original Ghosbusters, a perfect blend of comedy and horror, but they were less than impressed by it. Can you guess who it...


A Solo Review and Star Wars Fatigue

How did you feel about the Solo movie? Don’t forget to tell us...


Netflix Shows Worth Watching

With so much to choose from, it's hard to sit down and pick one Netflix series that's worth watching. Not to worry! Hopefully Part-Time Characters can help with any indecisiveness. While Maria works the solo shift in this fictional video store, recurring guest and video store client, Jerry Rodriguez, joins this week's episode to talk about Netflix shows and specials that are worth a try. We start off with a brand new Netflix Original, Godzilla, a computer animated film about humanity...


The January Movies We Hate

Justice League and Thor Ragnarok Reviewed

In our shortest episode to date, Bridget, Adonis and I talk about superhero movies, both Marvel and DC.
