We watched In the Mood for Love, a Chinese film from the year 2000. In 1960s Hong Kong, two couples move in next to each other in a crowded apartment building. One husband soon leaves for an extended business trip, and one wife goes to care for a sick mother. The remaining Mr. Chow and Mrs. Chen realize that their spouses have run off to have an affair with each other. As they connect over this grief, they begin to fall in love, but refuse to start their own affair and sink to the level of their cheating spouses.
The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums — movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas — picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
