80: This is a Ghost Podcasting Join our Agents as they reunite for the Matrix Resurrections movie. We are enjoying that this sequel confirms all our predictions and feelings about the Matrix being a romance series. The sequel was an unexpected surprise 20 years later. Although it was pretty much nothing like we were expecting it was the romance we wanted. We may not like everything about the sequel but in the end, we are painting everything with all the rainbows.

79: Hot Pink Sequins in the Amazon We are back with a rollicking romantic adventure! Our Agents went to see The Lost City in actual theatres with snacks. And they were not disappointed in Sandra Bullock&#8217;s comedic performance in the sparkliest hot pink jumpsuit. Listen to our Director try to say Channing Tatum while our Agents are oozing love for Dash/Alan. Warning: This episode could result in giant tables of charcuterie.

In our first romantic adventure, our characters are gathered in the small town of Hopewell Springs just before the Winter Solstice Festival. Some ne&#8217;er-do-wells are trying to stop the festival because it is too witchy. Pebbles will be tossed. Ruckuses will be instigated. But will our friends save the festival? Will we actually see Bigfoot? When is someone actually gonna SMOOCH? Join Ruby (Julia), Amelia (KatyBeth), Jac (Heather), and Ellie (Riley) to find out if our dice are in the mood for love&#8230;

75: Aspirational Spaces This week we are sharing an episode of our favourite Old Movie podcast hosted by Agent Shelly Brisbin. It&#8217;s time for Lions Towers & Shields. We discuss a classic mystery that mixes romance with suspense in the most perfect way&#8230; All this fuss over one lady in a painting. Laura! Loads of men want her, she has a song that&#8217;s quite memorable, and everyone in this movie talks about her constantly. Otto Preminger directs Gene Tierney, Vincent Price, Dana Andrews, and Clifton Webb. It&#8217;s a great cast, and the film comes just as we&#8217;re entering the film noir era. But...
74: Love in All the Universes Join our Agents as they dive into another romance-saturated, sci-fi story. This time they are discussing all 5 seasons of Fringe, because what was the pandemic for, if not to rewatch all our comfort shows? Fringe is more proof that you can take a procedural science fiction show and blend in the romance perfectly. Comparisons to X-Files were inevitable. We cover the important beats of all five seasons and ponder the important questions such as Do we like Fauxlivia? And why aren&#8217;t there more Astrid-centric stories? Are there any other sci-fi shows that do romance as well as Fringe?

72: A (Not) Definitive Guide to Christmas Join some of our Agents for a cozy in-person recording. They are cozied up in Christmas sweaters and Santa hats (really) and surrounded by snacks (or the remains of them). They have paused in the middle of a Christmas movie marathon to tell you about their favourite Christmas movies and try to answer all your holiday movie questions: Why are there SO MANY Christmas movies? What makes a good one? What makes them angry? What would they like to see improved? Why are we eating so many snacks? Come listen in and then go on your own festive mission with the Official Agents of S.M.O.O.C.H. Holiday Movie Bingo Cards.
