No Natalie this week as she’s off working for the joy of the holiday season (3:58). Blaine and Adam are itching to talk about Bono’s autobiographical writing Surrender as well as U2 as a whole (4:36). Somehow, we can’t avoid Avatar talk (20:51), which leads into not one but two stories about Dances With Wolves (22:36)! Come for the Avatar bashing, stay for the Dances With Wolves childhood tales!

From there, it’s the bulk of the episode as the gang dissects the enjoyment of the Netflix movie Emily The Criminal (26:14) as well as a very deep dive into the final episodes and overall amazement of The English from Amazon Prime, including why its flawed but still great (42:17).
