Episode 67 – Toxicity Report

Welcome BACK to the couch. After a week of seeing the twitterverse AFLAME with the Jada and Will drama, we decided to give our two cents on the entire ENTANGLEMENT. As we are a film and television podcast we figured this was a fantastic opportunity to segue into an episode all about movies highlighting toxic relationships because- why not? Join us as we discuss 500 Days of Summer (2009) starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel (0:22:45), The Breakup (2006) starring Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn (0:43:00), and a cinema classic Gone With the Wind (1939) starring Vivien Lee and Clark Gable (01:03:30). Join us for that and much more!

Episode 66 – The Mutant Pod

It is officially TWENTY years since the release of the first X-Men film; the spark that would begin the modern comic book era (don’t @ us). To celebrate we are revisiting the original trilogy (in our typical ‘all over the place’ fashion). Join us and our special guest host, Mags, as we talk about the three movies, comment on the later reboot films (its unavoidable), and give our two cents on the future of the X-Men within the MCU.  Stream the episode on Spotify below, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 65 – IndePODence Day

The boys are BACK for the 4 of JULY shenanigans! On this weeks episode we are giving an ode to our wonderful US of A! Join us on the couch as Rom gives us a review of the HBO mini series ‘John Adams’ (0:05:45) and then a deep discussion and review of the movie ‘Independence Day’ starring Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum (0:14:00). We end the show discussing some of the latest tv/movie news including the DC comic event ‘Fandome’ (1:03:25) and then the recent rumors about the Star Wars universe possibly removing the latest 3 movies from canon! (1:06:00) All that and much more! Stream the episode on Spotify below, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 64 – Big Pussy Gets Popped

We are back, and this week we are once again giving you an episode that has absolutely nothing to do with what we said last week. That’s the couch for you! On this special episode we dive into HBO’s The Sopranos. Join us as we hit season highlights, episodes we considered series defining, the controversial?, epic?, perfect? series finale, and more of Gab’s existential rants inspired by one of the best shows in television history. Stream the episode on Spotify below, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.

Episode 62 – Doing The Right Thing

Here at the 17 Waverly Podcast we know that to be silent is to be complicit. Black lives matter. So, as the messiest film/tv podcast you have never heard of, we wanted to dedicate this episode to appreciate excellent Black films and performances. Join us as we talk about 1965’s ‘A Patch of Blue’ starring Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier (0:03:15), the 2018 excellent adaptation of James Baldwin’s ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ (0:22:00) , Spike Lee’s ‘Malcolm X’ (he inspired Magneto never forget it)(0:40:15) and finally, Spike’s iconic 1989 film (which clearly has not aged at all) ‘Do the Right Thing’ (0:54:20). Below are some important links to petitions to sign and places to donate so that we can all be part of the change!

Episode 60 – A Pod Far Far Away

We did it folks, episode 60! Quite the accomplishment considering we were very convinced this would last only a month at inception. Join us as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Empire Strikes Back” with (yet another) sloppy discussion of the Star Wars franchise. Join us as we tackle topics like why Darth Vader ain’t shit, why adults pushing 40 should still see the animated Clone Wars series targeted for kids, and the future of the franchise at Disney+. Lastly, the Snyder Cut is a go at HBOMax, (01:04:38) so course we wrap with our two cents on that.
