Everything That’s Wrong
07. Love Never Dies

07. Love Never Dies

March 7, 2019

Tracy and Reagan talk about all the things wrong with the Phantom of the Opera sequel Love Never Dies.  For some reason, old man Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber decided he needed to make this thing and we decided we needed to see it.  Come for the giant, dancing skeletal rat monster, stay for the take down of Christine and Phantom's star-crossed love… Anyway, Tracy doesn't agree with me (even people who are usually right can sometimes be wrong) but there is no way the original musical and this show are in the same continuity.  This is alternate universe Phantom, Christine, and Raoul. That's the only way the plot works, Tracy. The only way.

(Abusing my synopsis-writing privileges…  Mwahahaha…)

Also, we added a couple clips in post-production that we didn't have planned, so we don't give them credit as they occur, so let's do that now.  These are:

 

06. Heathers

06. Heathers

October 23, 2018

This time we decide to shake up our usual format by talking about everything that's wrong with Heathers, the 1988 movie directed by Michael Lehmann and starring. Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. "Last time it was a movie from 2005 and now you're doing a movie from 1988??" I hear you asking. No, see, it's topical and relevant(er) because Heathers the Musical premiered Off Broadway in 2014 and it is through this lens that the original flaws in Heathers the movie become so apparent.

Well. Now that I've made that sound super exciting and not dry at all, get ready for an episode chalk full of opinions and clips from Heathers the Musical because Tracy wanted this to be an Everything That's Right episode, but that's not our name...

Also, in People Agree with Us we included a clip from. WHY HEATHERS IS FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC! by Amy Lovatt without crediting it as it was used. Apologies.

Channeling the wrath of yesteryear, Tracy and Reagan bring in special guest star Teresa as they discuss the missteps and disappointments of the Rent film adaptation, including the stupid reasons provided by the director for cutting an important song, the flattening of a major minor character, and Bon Jovi hair not being an adequate substitute for spiky punk rock boy hair.

 

04. Outlander on Starz

04. Outlander on Starz

March 19, 2017

Tracy and Reagan discuss the adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander book series to a tv show on the Starz network.  Highlights include a frank discussion of the flaws and successes of the wedding night sex scene, why epilogues are terrible, the word "handles" used to describe Twitter usernames just like someone who hasn't used the internet since the days of IRC, and "positivities" as a noun, because sometimes you just have to go with the word that your brain gives you instead of pausing to find the right one.  This isn't an essay, it is a podcast.  Ye be warned.

Also, we try to cite our sources before we reference them in the podcast itself but we missed one, so the interview clip we use with Toby Menzies can be found here.
