Badass Women Save Themselves: Atomic Blonde

November 8, 2017

In this episode of Badass Women Save Themselves, Blythe and Jove discuss Atomic Blonde, specifically the things that surprised them, the things that they liked, and the things the could have done without.

Charlize Theron is a badass. She saves herself and a lot of other people. And she does it all to awesome 80s music. We have lots of opinions on Atomic Blonde, and not all of them are good, but we definitely come down on the side that it's worth watching.

Badass Women Save Themselves: Halloween Fun

October 25, 2017
In this episode of Badass Women Save Themselves, Blythe and Jove talk about all the things that make Halloween amazing.
 
Halloween is the best. All the monsters and zombies agree. The werewolves could take it or leave it--they get a full moon at least once a month. But we love Halloween so much that it even changes the media we consume in October--Jove's family watches a Halloween-themed movie every night! In this episode, we talk about our top five favorite Halloween media--books, music, tv, and films.

Badass Women Save Themselves: The Russo Test

September 27, 2017

The Russo Test

In this episode authors Jove Belle and Blythe Rippon chat about the Russo Test. 

The Bechdel test has been around since it first appeared in Dykes to Watch Out For in 1985, but it moved to general parlance in the 2000s. Perhaps it's impressive, then, that we learned about the Vito Russo test a mere five years after it was introduced in 2012. The test sets a very low bar (like the Bechdel test) for measuring positive representation of queer characters. We evaluate its efficacy and discuss some movies and television characters that pass it.

We’re not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel.” In this episode, we go House by House and discuss what’s gone wrong, and what’s gone so, so right for the villains and heroes of Game of Thrones.

Badass Women Save Themselves: The Shannara Chronicles

July 5, 2017

Badass Women Save Themselves 

The Shannara Chronicles 

In 2016, MTV launched its YA response to HBO's Game of Thrones, a fantasy series based on novels by Terry Brooks. The story follows three unlikely heroes as they try to save the Four Lands, challenging gender stereotypes as they go. The storytelling isn't as intricate and the acting isn't nearly as good as Game of Thrones, but Shannara has much to recommend it, including some yummy eye candy.

Badass Women Save Themselves

 

5 Reasons To Watch Game Of Thrones

This episode Jove Belle and Blythe Rippon chat about Game Of Thrones and each give thier top 5 reasons that they think you should watch it. 

Game of Thrones has won more Emmys than any prime time television shows, and with good reason: arguably the most ambitious show ever to grace the small screen, GoT is epic in narrative and aesthetic scale. Its plot twists and turns until you're spinning, and it's a good idea not to get too emotionally attached to any character (although, good luck with that). In this episode, we give five reasons to watch the show.

Top 5 Fanfic Ships 

Let's talk about ships. No, not the kind with sails and pirates (although, really, we don't spend enough time talking about that). The lesbian, fan-fic kind! In this episode, we discussion our top five non-canon lesbian ships. Some are so obvious they might as well be canon. Some we made up because it would have made the story more feminist. Most involve painfully beautiful women who stare at each other's lips a little too much. All are a blast to discuss!
