Episode 5: She's the Man

This week’s episode is out longest yet, and for good reason — it’s our first Channing Tatum movie! We watched the 2006 teen hit She’s the Man, the first film where Channing gets a leading role, and starring Amanda Bynes, who was much more famous than him at the time. Our discussion starts light but takes an unexpectedly serious turn into gender politics, sexual attraction, and story archetypes. Also, Katie sings us 10 different jingles!
