#14: The Remains of the Day (1993)

July 22, 2018

This week Dave and Ashley discuss THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, based on Kazuo Ishiguro's novel about the life and regrets of Stevens (Anthony Hopkins), dutiful butler of Darlington Hall, who values housekeeper Miss Kenton (Emma Thompson) a great deal. Dave discusses some of his own regrets, which may extend to selecting a film for the show that no longer resonates the way it once did. Curious thing, looking back on one's life. Nevertheless, Ashley welcomes the opportunity to carry on her acquaintance with spirit animal Emma Thompson and to utter witticisms at regular intervals.

#13: Pushing Daisies (2007) - TV Series

July 8, 2018

When Ashley was 26 years, 51 weeks, 3 days, 6 hours and 26 minutes old she discovered a delightfully dark new television series. Ten years, 36 weeks, 6 days, 4 hours and 2 minutes later, after a chance encounter in the DVD section of a used-book store, Ashley shared this same series with her new beau. Dave and Ashley continue to explore cult TV with Ashley’s pick, psychedelic twee fantasy, PUSHING DAISIES (2007-2009). What will Dave make of the day-glo colors and dark comic sensibility? And will the show live up to Ashley’s fond memories?
