We show our ignorance of and love for Britain in this extensive discussion of The Crown’s latest season.
When we recorded this episode Queen Elizabeth II was, in fact, 93. Rather irritatingly, she had a birthday since then making us wrong about yet another thing. Don’t come to us for facts about Britain.

Sometimes we talk about TV instead of movies. Well, this is the first time we’ve done that, actually.
Broadchurch is a British crime drama series set in a small town in England. After a local boy is killed, a murder investigation tears apart the titular hamlet of Broadchurch.
We cover Series 1 of 3 on this episode of the podcast. The first half of the episode gives our glowing general impressions while the second half descends into spoiler territory. It’s a really, really strong series and it’s well worth watching so we highly recommend not listening to the second half of the podcast if you haven’t watched the entirety of Series 1.
We’ve seen Incredibles 2 and that should be our next episode.
