Episode 67: S1M0NE


“Sci-fi meets Al Pacino? I’m in.” Inspired by Instagram, we watched S1M0NE, a movie from the early 2000s about the rise to fame of a CGI actress. In this episode of Viewing Party, we compare Childish Gambino to *NSYNC, spend too much time googling sexy shiny fabric, Katie considers becoming a Channing evangelist, and Wesleigh, much to her own chagrin, misidentifies a font (it’s Eurostile, not Bank Gothic!).
