Episode 54: Easter Parade


Put on your Easter bonnet, with all the fills upon it, Katie and Wesleigh are talking Easter Parade! In honor of the holiday weekend we watch the 1948 musical featuring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. In this episode we talk friend zones, symbolic Easter pastries, Katie does at least 5 accents, Wesleigh might be a vampire (!?) and we have a very visceral reaction to THAT KISS.

Episode 25: Step Up 2: The Streets


It’s time to return to the Tatumverse … just barely. This week Viewing Party tackles Step Up 2, which touts Channing, but greatly disappoints, and not just because he only has about 8 minutes of screen time. Aside from bemoaning this movie, Katie and Wesleigh talk about current terrible weather, the weird cell phones of the mid-2000s, and, after discussing the new IT, discover a red balloon in Katie’s bedroom!

Episode 10: Step Up

It's that time of the month — time for another Channing Tatum movie! Join us on a Journey Through Giggles as we watch Step Up, a pretty forgettable film we somehow were able to talk about for a whole hour. In this episode we discuss convenient character deaths, teen dance movies of the 2000s (why were there so many??), Wesleigh attempts to make a telegraph joke, and Katie describes that time she invented the sport of Chili Luge.
