Here it is folks, the podcast that was almost called "Bloodsport", for reasons that will become increasingly clear! Join us to talk film, TV, books, music, Adam Driver's hands, Lizzo, bad fashion choices, Timothee Chalamet ... all the stuff that's fit to ruin friendships over and much, much more. We are Kylie Klein Nixon and Emily Brookes, a couple of Kiwi entertainment journalists, TV watchers, film lovers, pop corn eaters and fangirls, who dive, deep, deep, no deeper than that even, into the heady, intoxicating, slightly arousing world pop culture news with a half hour cast every Friday.
In which journalists and pop culture fanatics Kylie Klein Nixon and Emily Brookes talk about three Netflix series: Cringy-hilarious comedy Sex Education, whose second season drops today, new rage-inducing docuseries Sex, Explained, and Big Mouth - just because it’s great.
Let’s talk about sex, babies.
That came out wrong. Let’s talk about sex, consenting adults!
Gillian Anderson. Ammiright? That woman just gets better and better in every way and right now the best way to experience her is by watching the Netflix series Sex Education. On Off Script this week we talk about that great show, what it gets right about high school and teenagers, and what sex ed taught us.
Then we discuss the docuseries Sex, Explained. It’s narrated by Janelle Monae, it’s insightful and terrifying, and it’s got us seriously worked up.
Plus Kylie sings the praises of Big Mouth. It’s not new, it’s not returning, it’s just awesome - and maybe provides the best sex education of them all.
But before we dig into that good stuff, we quickly review the Oscar Nominations in light of last week's episode: "We've had enough of old, white, catholic dudes"... and things get a little... heated.
In which we discuss Golden Globes shockers, Bafta clangers, our predictions for the Oscar nominations and how much Hollywood loves itself.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s a winter wonderland! (If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere.) The lights have been hung, the new fancy clothes have been donned, the gifts have been… donated by luxury brands.
IT’S AWARDS SEASON!
On this week’s podcast we discuss the first major Hollywood event thereof, the Golden Globes, which delivered a few surprises, and the lily-white Bafta nominations.
Then we distill that data, add a splash of our own opinions, and cook up our predictions for Monday’s Oscar nominations announcement.
Can Marriage Story pick up nods in every acting category? Will the rest of the world realise that Joker is not really that good? Is there any point showing up for Best Actress if your name doesn’t rhyme with Shemnae Shellweger? Are we in for yet another sausage fest?
Join us on Off Script as we ask, and attempt to answer, these questions and more.
