Dave and Mary Ellen, while still patiently waiting for Americans episodes have gotten into the Christmas spirit and watched the "Mission Impossible-style" Christmas movie, Arthur Christmas. We discuss Christmas tradition, family business dynamics and what Dave would look like with a mustache.
Dave and Mary Ellen get VERY SERIOUS about a tough subject. The most famous spouses in the spy world, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. We suggest you steal someone's HBO password and watch this documentary. If nothing else is a great conversation starter.
Dave and Mary Ellen thought that since The Americans took a subtle nuanced approach to the issues surrounding biological weapons and deadly viruses, that we'd check out a movie that did the same. Unfortunately we picked Outbreak. There is one thing that this movie is infected with, and that is the 90s. We got in depth with this one, and we discussed Dick Tracy's car, an angry attitude towards fish, and a disease that targets voluminous curls. We highly suggest you watch this movie, enjoy this bonus episode, Outbreak.
Dave and Mary Ellen are back with the thrilling (REALLY!) conclusion of The Night Manager. We wrap up the mini series and discuss future plans. We discuss minivan hideaways, Egyptian cuisine and British attitudes towards firearms.
