Telling Another Season Of Big Little Lies

Episode 255,   Jun 12, 2019, 12:00 AM

We're thrilled to welcome Eve back to the guest chair...but were we as thrilled to welcome Big Little Lies back into our primetime lives? We talked about Meryl Streep's flawlessly passive-aggressive performance and loved Laura Dern because it's a day ending in Y. After Tara reported on a Kit-Kat-jingle-related Tiny Triumph, Sarah joined her to capsule-review the ATX Festival before we went around the dial with Pose, RuPaul's Drag Race, and Black Mirror. Dan Cassino tasked us with assembling our own personal A-Teams as an Extra Credit, and everyone from Villanelle to Pam Poovey got in on the act. Then we took a tour of Senegal with Franรงoise's lovely Canon presentation on behalf of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown. Kristen Bell is a winner, Linda Fairstein is a loser, and we all shared a bowl of alphabet soup in Game Time. Don't get stuck in a hallway marching band: it's an all-new Extra Hot Great.
