#8 Dark Matter 

Andi and Lise really dig the TV series Dark Matter, which airs on the SyFy network. It’s a space opera, which is one of Andi’s all-time fave genres (and Lise’s!) but it’s got some really excellent elements that make it super watchable. Plus, diverse cast. 

Six people emerge from stasis on a space ship and none of them know who they are or how they got there. Plus, there’s an android (played by Lost Girl’s Zoie Palmer) who also has to have her memory wiped. So six humans with no idea what they’re doing on this vessel and as the series progresses, they realize that they have shady pasts and even shadier business dealings in a galaxy ruled by mega-corporations vying for power. The six have to learn how to stick together though they have no idea who they are, and both Lise and Andi love how the show explores the idea of how who we are is determined, to an extent, by our memories.

#7 Ghostbusters—both! 

Lise (L-MAC!) and Andi wanted to a do a point/counterpoint on the original and new versions of the movie Ghostbusters. So they take a walk down memory lane and chat about the original 1984 Ghostbusters and then completely lose it in classic fangirl style over the 2016 homage with Kate McKinnon as the iconic Jillian Holtzmann, the gadget/science master of all. 

The premise of both deals with a misfit group of friends/colleagues who all have a fascination with the paranormal. They start up ghost hunting businesses in Manhattan, but soon realize that paranormal power is building, and things are gonna get wild! 

Also, THE SCENE that still sets Andi off on a grrl power rush.

Episode 6 Lumberjanes


Andi and Lise rave about the comic Lumberjanes, which is totes safe for kids and is chock full of so much awesome that you’ll dig it, too. Imagine if the Goonies met up with the Buffy crew and…well, you can imagine the awesome, right? 

Five friends are spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp. But it turns out not to be your typical camp, as mystical and mythical creatures show up that our five feisty and fabulous campers have to figure out how to deal with. It’s grrl power, friendships to the max power, and the power of teamwork and acceptance.

Episode 5: Sense 8  

Both Andi and Lise MacTague (LMac!) really dug the first season of this Netflix show, and it’s been almost 2 years since it launched. Finally, Season 2 will be released in May, and we can’t wait to see what happens. Here, they tell you a bit about the show and what they love about it, as well as talk about some of the characters. 

In a nutshell: a group of eight people from around the world begin to realize that they are linked mentally and emotionally, and as they start to explore what this means, they also find out they’re being hunted by others who view sensates as a threat to the world’s order and they will have to learn how to harness their links to help each other survive. (sensate = sense 8…get it???? Lol)
