Thor: Love and Thunder Review Logic and emotional impact...where art thou? The question that Bridgette and Genn ask after watching Thor: Love and Thunder. Listen as we dissect the latest Thor movie - from the hilarious(?) hijinks to the meaning of love to Jane's stint as a superhero - and try to figure out why Ragnorak is still the superior Thor movie. Not that we didn't enjoy ourselves! It's just...the script needed just one more revision by a script doctor (Caroline, where you at?!). But, some excellent high points include Christian Bale being Christian Bale, the visual effects, the acting, and a Ted Lasso cameo that left Bridgette screaming in the theater.

Ms. Marvel Ep. 4 & 5 Time for a double-episode review as Kamala’s family history is finally revealed! Bridgette and Genn discuss the intergenerational mother-daughter relationships and how the India-Pakistan Partition changed the Khan family forever. We also hypothesize about how a certain someone may be taking over Kamran’s subconscious, affectionally roll our eyes at a third(!) love interest, and try not to think too hard about time loops.

Ms. Marvel Ep. 3: Destined Hello fellow nerds, and welcome to another segment of Ms. Marvel! This episode had oodles of action, wedding fun, and Genn finally eating her Kamram Karrots and admitting he's not so bad - all of which Bridgette thoroughly enjoyed. Listen as we scratch our heads over the Djinn's sudden entrance to the story and their cultural significance (La Llorona, anyone?) and discuss the episode's theme of family.

Ms. Marvel Ep. 2: Crushed The Nerd Alert Girls are reviewing "The Episode where No One Had Any Chill!" - also known as Ms. Marvel episode 2! Listen as Genn and Bridgette switch between capital F Feelings and logic and the immersion into Muslim and Pakistani culture as they discuss the newest episode! Kamala keeps charming the hell out of her audience, and we Nerdettes are impressed by the show's portrayal of Kamala Khan's heritage.

Ms. Marvel Ep. 1: Generation Why Genn has been gushing for years about Kamala Khan in the comics, and now she finally gets to see her onscreen! Genn and Bridgette discuss the nuanced family dynamics, wholesome friendships, colorful whimsicality, and Pakistani heritage featured in the first episode of Ms. Marvel. We also spend time asking why this fictional AvengerCon only takes place at night and when the real AvengerCon is making its way to us. And, of course, we want to manifest Kamala and Peter Parker becoming besties!
