We are going back to our roots with this 1999 Lifetime classic, Ultimate Deception. It stars Yasmine Bleeth and Richard Greco and a whole lot of over the top acting. Stephanie is so very very into it. Plus we learn about the time that Michelle’s grandparents turned a crib into a bar
Well the weather outside is frightful, but this movie is kinda delightful? I mean, its not great but I didn’t want to rip my eyeballs out so bonus?
Playing the part of Michelle this week from the Beckett To The Future podcast (https://www.beckettfuturepod.com/), its Rachel Rosing
So sit back with a warm cup of cocoa, put on your best pair of Converse and settle in for a tale of romance and what happens when cousins marry to preserve a royal bloodline.
For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss Libba Bray’s ‘Beauty Queens’. Jake also references James Nicoll’s review of the book, and Libba Bray’s essay in Entertainment Weekly about attempts to make a Beauty Queens movie. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening!
We spend a lot of time reading jokes from the book, such as the names of hit songs from the nonexistent band Boyz Will B Boyz, and also find some points where this 2011 novel is uncomfortably close to 2017’s political reality. We meditate on wild women, volcanoes, stuffed lemurs, and how Carrie wishes this book existed when she, herself, was a teen. The book is very fun and good, and we hope you enjoy our discussion of it!
In our next episode, we plan to talk about ‘The Dust of 100 Dogs’ by A.S. King.

This week on Please Don’t Send Me into Outer Space, we popped in an old tape we found in a dumpster behind the local Denny’s. It’s label read “Most likely the worst movie ever made, or at least in the bottom 10, according to popular opinion and the internet at large.” Turns out, it was the movie Plan 9 from Outer Space from 1959! Famous for being bad, this Ed Wood movie is actually quite charming once you get past the super cheap set, the sometimes subpar acting, and the plot that is as good as most sci-fis from the era. And hey! The movie is in the public domain, so you can gather the family around the ol’ YouTube app and watch along with us!
No, not THAT Home for the Holidays. You mean you haven’t heard of the 1972 ABC Made For TV Movie starring Jessica Walter, Sally Field and Walter Brennan? Well now you have. Its kinda like that other Home For The Holidays but like real 70’s and real murdery. We might have found our new favorite Christmas movie.

This week, Aaron told us he had a big surprise for us as his pick. He then proceded to step all over the Lego town that Sarah and Joel had spent hours building that day. After he was conscious again, we watched Colossal from 2016! 2017? One of those. This movie from the same director as Time Crimes is just as much a mind trip as that one was. If you haven’t seen it, go in blind and watch it, then listen to our spoiler filled discussion starting at about the 25 minute mark!
This week, in this dark and uncertain future we decided to pack up the kids and take a road trip to Eden by watching Logan from 2017! This is as good a send off to a character as we’ve seen, and we’re going to miss Hugh Jackman in our comic book movies. With that in mind, it was great to see him slice and dice in a rated R format, although it is incredibly unnerving to hear Professor X cursing, so prepare yourself for that.
