Ben took a jaunt to the UK and got to meet British Tom! Naturally, we had to immortalize the moment in podcast form.

Melissa and Ben are back in the Dollhouse to discuss the pilot episode of The Perfectionists! How do the new Liars stack up? Is Mona just James Bond now? Has Mona ever seen, let alone cut, a pie before? How does a TA-ship actually work? Where can I download that cello cover of Poker Face? So many questions! And will Melissa and Ben be drug in enough to watch episode two? Listen to find out!

Tom & Ben discuss the seminal (what does that word mean, by the way?) horror classic from John Carpenter! Tom even reads from his essays about the movie. Yeah, pural. EssayS. He is a true Halloween fan if his love of Tina didn't already tip you off.

MORE of the night Tom and Ben disagreed about a movie called Halloween 2. We are both, however, pleased to discuss the first and only movie in the franchise with some much needed male nudity. Thanks, Bud.

This movie is basically the meet-cute between Loomis and Jamie. You know, before he spends the entirety of part 5 mentally destroying her. We also discuss the franchise timeline (it all adds up perfectly, don't worry), who is Jamie's father, why/how Jamie has a picture of her murderous uncle, just all the essentials.

Words like "bonkers" and "lunacy" are thrown around a lot in this episode because there are just few other adjectives that so appropriately describe this movie. A movie that made Michael Myers the bumbling sidekick in his own franchise. And that is before we even get to the Producer's Cut and it gets all power-of-the-runes on us. We had great green gobs of fun talking about this movie and hope you all enjoy it, too!

Halloween: Resurrection took a lot out of us but we are professionals so we're back!

The reception this film got led to the studio completely rebooting the franchise. Is it really that bad?! Yes. Yes, it is. A thousand times yes. But Tom & Ben still go in with open minds and warm hearts to break down Halloween: Resurrection!

Melissa is back in the podcasting dollhouse with Ben to talk some teens! That sounds weird but we explain it in the episode. It is still weird once you hear it explained. Fair warning.

Rob Zombie's take on Halloween was a box office smash hit (it still holds the record for biggest Labor Day opening in the US of A) but fans are still split on this half origin story / half remake. Ben and Tom break it all down and split on which half of the movie they prefer.

Join Ben and Tom as they do a deep dive retrospective on all the Halloween movies from Rob Zombie's remake to the 1978 classic that started it all. This limited series will then conclude with a weekend of release review of the brand new Halloween! On today's episode, we tell you what prompted all this and we react to the recently released first trailer for Halloween! If you've never seen a Halloween movie, now's the time to jump on board! Think of them like PLL: it started off really well, got pretty murky in the middle, the stuff fans didn't like got retconned out of existence, the timeline's a complete mess only this time the killer is actually pretty adept at killing teenagers.

Vanderpump Fools {S05 E01}

Pretty Little Podcasters presents... Vanderpump Fools: a Vanderpump Rules Podcast Featurette!

Did you ever wonder what would happen if the worst inhabitants of Rosewood moved to Los Angeles and worked at a Real Housewife's restaurant? Okay, that's a thin connection to PLL, we admit that. But you're legit not gonna find a better way to get through this long hiatus than watching a reality show that features a young lady from Kentucky get berated by her scumbag boyfriend into getting a double-D boob job. Is that any worse that what Ezra's done? You be the judge.

Also, to the listener who came up with the great idea for the name Vanderpump Fools, thank you! Remind us who you are and we will give you full credit :)

{S07 E10} "The DArkest Knight"

A lot happened in the final mid-season finale of PLL. Did all of it make sense? Well,no. Did even most of it make sense? No, not really. We break down every ship and every death (there was only one, at most btw) and we spend a lot of time defending Noel and Jenna. And even more time discussing the looped conversation about Ramen that was pivotal to this episode for some reason.

Category:general -- posted at: 12:37am EST

{S07 E09} "The Wrath of Kahn"

Paige is creepin again, Emily is worthless again (read: still), Aria is relieved some poor Australian girl is still dead, Noel is still looking super hot, that is, until Hanna caves in his skull with a metal pipe. It almost sounds like this was an eventful episode, doesn't it?

Category:general -- posted at: 11:22pm EST

{S07 E08} "Exes and OMGs"

We talk about the welcome return of Grunwald and the supernatural element of the show, Noel's deadly hotness and Aria's scene stealing. We read some great listener tweets and theories. And on-air we deal with literally having seen a man die fifteen minutes before we started recording.

{S07 E07} "Original G'A'ngsters"

Yeah, not a typo, that is the actual title of this episode of PLL. It should give you an idea of what we're in for. In this episode Ben & Melissa discuss how car alarms work since no one on the set or in the writer's room at PLL seems to have the foggiest idea and the movie The Notebook comes up a lot. Like, a lot.

{S06 E17} "We've All Got Baggage" with CAbernet And A!

It is a fantastical crossover event with Sue Funke and Chelsea White of CAbernet And A! It is the perfect episode to have Chelsea and Sue here, too, since this was yet another filler episode that was lined wall to wall with boring white dudes from muppet-voiced Liam to Melba Toast Rollins (to quote Chelsea). So, we might go off the rails a time or two but that's how you like it anyway, don't lie.

{S06 E16} "Where Somebody Waits For Me"

So little happens in this episode we resort to #FunHerpesFacts again. Wish we were kidding. We were just inundated with super boring white guys like Liam and Dr. Rollins that are so clearly just placeholders we don't need to care about which is great because we definitely don't. At least we get some Mona and some Tanner to breath life into this episode!

Fair warning, Melissa & Ben were super punchy during this episode. It has been a really long week, you guys. But, luckily, not much happened in this episode so it's cool. M & B do, however, spend an inordinate amount of time convincing themselves that Sara Harvey (aka Sharvey) does indeed think she is in actuality a robot.

We're still all fully on board with Spaleb, right? Seeing Toby only cements that, doesn't it? Even though we LOVE his new girlfriend! I mean, she's a person of color so she is not long for this world if she stays in Rosewood but we still love her.

Angry Ezra is our favorite Ezra but we still definitely don't want to read a book written by Ezria.  Emily is bad at keeping her secret and Hanna and Lucas are terrible liars. It may not sound like it, but this was a pretty great episode!

And it is great that there were prom tales to share because this episode of Pretty Little Liars was almost wall to wall filler! Well, except for the Real Housewives of Rosewood. We could've watched an entire hour of that and been more than happy. Cuz the #PLLProm was, let's face it, a real snoozer.

We got some more Clark (never a bad thing), met a sexy new "Faux-Laurentis" called Rhys and Ali completely f**ks over Lorenzo. He should have seen that coming, this one's on him. He was warned. By literally everyone.

Meanwhile, we could not more be looking forward to next week's super fancy PLL prom! So, Marissa and Ben chat about the difference between a Los Angeles, California prom and a Butte, Montana prom. Turns out the differences are everything.

Alright guys, your letter writing campaign has finally paid off and the PLL podcast crossover event you've been demanding has arrived! The insanely wonderful hosts of CAbernet And A are our guests (or actually we are their guests, technically)! And even though half the episode was Emily and Sara's awkward non-romantic romance it still gave us a lot to talk about. You want an example? How about Mike's horrific bleached, torn and bedazzled denim shirt that he stole off the set of Nashville? Yeah, we dig down deep into the most important Pretty Little Liars issues of the day.

It is a real stream of consciousness podcast so buckle in. I mean, Ali is kissing Lorenzo, Weak Link Emily in full force, Mean Dean is back, A has boobies, Hanna has never looked better, where's Ezra, do the writers even know how weed works at all... Whew, as you can see there is much to discuss.

That's right, Aria's dad is back from weekend college to help his daughter through her PTS. We learn so much about Charles and some of it may even be true! Plus, Caleb. He just gets his awesomeness all over everything as per usual. To kick off the episode, M & B discuss their very first one star review from iTunes. Melissa may have taken it a little personally, you guys.

Somebody turn on a light because Pretty Little Liars is getting dark! And by dark we mean an entire episode devoted to the Liars dealing with Post Traumatic Stress and lots (and lots) of rape allusions. But luckily the girls have their parents to walk behind them and whine that they aren't getting over things quick enough. All the moms are here and are all, pretty much, monsters to their traumatized children. This may be a brutal episode but at least Melissa ends the podcast with an uplifting song that may or may not involve Nazis.

Bad Italian accents? Nay, offensive Italian accents? Endless montages of scootering across Rome? Brilliant children and moronic adults? Syrupy sweet pop music? Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. This all adds up to a Disney tween movie.

Join us as we discover the glory that is The Lizzie Mcguire Movie! M & M have seen it before (multiple times). B is being introduced to it for the very first time.  So, however you are approaching this movie we have you covered!

{S05 E25} "Welcome to the Dollhouse"

The whole gang (M & M & B) is here! We enter the Dollhouse and, frankly, we never want to leave! The Dollhouse is so much better than prison. We get to decorate for a creepy opera prom, watch old home movies, have access to all the Twinkies we can eat (even though there is no where to go the bathroom), wear fancy dresses (obvs) and, most fun, we learn how to make an EMP! 

Meanwhile, Toby handles a weapon for the first time and the Hastings parents are back and lawyering all over the place!

{S05 E24} "I'm a Good Girl, I Am"

The penultimate episode of season five of Pretty Little Liars is here and there is no shortage of things to talk about! Such as Perd Hapley! Tether ball! Ali's verdict! Archery! Grapefruits! Bob Durst! OJ! And other trials that were based in the real world!

Meanwhile, we read some awesome listener theories and get in a nice preview of next week's season finale. We cannot wait to get into The Dollhouse!

You can send us your theories from the sane to the hail marys (ALL of our contact info is at PrettyLittlePodcasters.com). And please take a moment to leave us a good review on iTunes. We would appreciate that as much as Ali would appreciate a competant defense attorney!

{S05 E23} "The Melody Lingers On"

The melody lingers on? Ali's f&#@ing trial lingers on! This may be the shortest murder trial of all time but still feels like its dragging! We therefore talk about the cavalcade of legal inaccuracies that permeate the air. We also chat about how effortlessly Caleb slipped in to the group in Hanna's absence. Uh, we love Caleb. Don't you love Caleb? Aria is also oddly on point this episode. Basically, PLL is killing time until the alleged #BigAReveal in the season finale so we inevitably end up talking about Sons of Anarchy. We can't help it.

Meanwhile, we have some more great listener theories to end the show on! If you have a theory (the crazier the better!) don't be shy! Let us hear it: @PrettyLittlePod on twitter or a number of other ways you can find at our website PrettyLittlePodcasters.com! Take a hot second and leave us a good review on iTunes, too!

{S05 E22} "To Plea or Not to Plea"

This week your hosts become legal analysts worthy of the best deep cable crime show. We break down Ali's case piece by piece and quickly discover that the evidence against her is thinner than an Olsen twin.

Meanwhile, Ezria is thwarted by a fence then breaks up, Spencer whores it up across two continents, Hanna tries to come clean to Tanner and Emily probably does something, too.

'Allo Guv! Spencer goes to Oxford (which is the same thing as London I'm sure of it), Aria and Hanna think carjacking is synonomous with being set on fire and Emily isn't a good dancer. Her hair is, she isn't.

Meanwhile, your hosts attempt and English accent. The result? A pretty decent Australian accent.

{S05 E20} "Pretty Isn't the Point" with Amber Kenny!

This may be the greatest episode of television. Period. And it is serendipity that it was so dance heavy and we have the one and only Amber Kenny here to help us break it down! We meet B's favorite new character, Talia's husband. We learn what Mike has been up to and it involves longingly staring at vials of blood. Oh, and Hanna betrays all of her emotions (aka anger) in the greatest dance you will see this side of a Step Up movie!

Meanwhile, we talk about why Toby is one hundo percent in the right and Spencer is being a total @$$hole.

Oh, don't worry, your insightful hosts talk about how truly horrific this episode title is. We cover it in depth. This is a busy episode. We try to help Lesli and Jonny find the missing letters from their names. We try to help Emily decipher Talia's mixed signals (that are not at all mixed) and ehlp Ezra's new business avoid a sexual harrassment suit all at the same time.

Meanwhile, we are basically just killing time until next week's episode as we have been promised an angry, shirtless, weight-lifting Mike.

{S05 E17} "The Bin of Sin"

Hanna is in danger and the PLL gang concoct a plan to save her that is so complicated we don't even attempt to understand it. But, your intrepid hosts do talk about Ashley and Jason a lot. And how much Caleb adds to every single scene he is in and how Toby detracts. We also talk about Weak Link Emily's weakest linkiest moment to date. And that's saying something!

Meanwhile, Ali wasn't in this episode and we couldn't be happier about that.

{S05 E16} "Over a Barrel" with Ervin Ross!

In the episode of PLL we are watched today Cancer (Caleb & Spencer) were detectiving again. They find a wealth of evidence that A has gathered from Mona's murder that can be used against them. And a barrel. They focus pretty much entirely on the barrel. Plus Ashley gets a peanut butter cookie proposal. And to get through it all we have awesome, wonderful and hilarious guest Ervin Ross (Comedy Bang! Bang!, The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation)! He even drops some PLL theories on us that, for someone's first viewing, are remarkably on point. 

Meanwhile, we ponder Jonny's upbringing due to his proclivity towards diggin through stranger's trash bins.

I honestly don't know where to start. Officer Toby is ignoring evidence, the school has a kiln room that Spencer and Caleb think is going to EVAPORATE METAL and Jonny is moving into the guest house. You guys, PLL is on point.

Meanwhile, top chef Emily makes a recipe that for some reason involves coring grapes. This ep is gangbusters so hit play and let's do this!

{S05 E14} "Through a Glass, Darkly" with Julia W.D. Harrison!

We are back with a vengeance to cover the winter premiere of PLL with our longest episode to date! Why so long? We had the sheer pleasure of being joined by our most involved and engaged guest ever, Julia WD Harrison! She did her homework and watched a lot of PLL before she came in. So we get some awesome retro season one talk in. We also talk about the winter premiere so have no fears. We ponder the "A" fireworks, welcome Ali to the clink and get into why someone would wear leis to a funeral.

Meanwhile, Julia leads us to analyze PLL on a deeper level and we really fall into a wormhole of tv comparisons and the psychology of the show. No, seriously. It's falcon amazing!

{S05 E13} "How the 'A' Stole Christmas"

Merry Ho Ho to one and all! Pretty Little Liars is back from the longest hiatus of all times! And it is the long awaited Christmas episode! We go to the Ice Ball, snoop around Ali's hat boxes (because apparently they did not stop making hat boxes in the 50s), learn Mona had a lawyer on retainer and watch lesbian PDA at an old folks home.

Meanwhile, seven teenagers and their English teacher have an implied Christmas orgy.

PLP Retro: "This is a Dark Ride" with special guest Kira Soltanovich!

The PLL hiatus continues. But we are not gonna let that get us down because it means we get to do another PLP Retro ep! We have been wanting to break down the Adam Lambert Halloween episode forever so we finally do it! Who cares if Halloween is over? Time is relative, man.

And special eps mean special guests! Our guest is just one of the best stand-ups working today. Period. Okay, well, not period because we want to brag on her some more. She has her own phenomenal podcast, worked for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and did we mention she's just plain f***ing hilarious? She is Kira Soltaonovich! Seriously, you guys, your humble hosts M & B come off as awkward pause machines because we just cannot keep up with the rapid-fire wit of Kira. She's awesome. We simply could not ask for a better guest to have for the episode where Adam Lambert flirts with Arararara (that will make sense when you listen to the podcast so get to it!).

Also, please be a buddy and drop by and rate us (positively) on iTunes.

PLP Retro: "Keep Your Friends Close"

Does this Pretty Little Liars hiatus feel longer than others? It does to us. But that is totally okay because we get to do another PLP Retro! Today we a going all the way back to season one to revisit the infamous glamping episode (season one, episode ten). You think you remember this episode but you don't. Well, at least we really didn't. We straight up forgot most of it actually. We were also fairly punchy to be honest. If you haven't relived an early PLL episode in a while then this is a great time to do it.

Meanwhile, Ms. Marin steals from old ladies all the while passing out hundred dollar bills to her kid!

PLP Retro: "The First Secret" with special guest Pamela Murphy!

Pretty Little Liars is still on hiatus so that gives us a chance to go back and revisit some our favorite episodes from past seasons. It is October so, naturally, we are going to cover a Halloween episode. In fact, we are covering the first Halloween episode inexplicably called "The First Secret" (episode 13 from season 2). And what fun is a PLL Halloween ep if we don't share it with someone? 

We invited Pamela Murphy to come watch her first episode of PLL with us! She has been on The Hotwives of Orlando, she is a mainstay at the UCB Theater, been on epic episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! (the podcast and the television show) and a million other projects that she has made all the better by her presence. She is absolutely hilarious and we simply could not have asked for a better guest. You need to hit play and listen to us deconstruct everthing from sex-with-sheep jokes to Ali's test that breaks every single principle of logic known to man. 

Meanwhile, Ali eats a giant finger-full of ketchup and we are all appropriately disgusted.

PLP Movie Club: Teen Spirit

Pretty Little Liars is on hiatus so it is clearly time for another episode of the Movie Club where we talk about movies starring PLL cast members. This week we break down the ABC Family TV movie Teen Spirit starring Lindsey Shaw (aka Paige)! It is October and we wanted to do a scary movie and this one has a teenager being electrocuted to death in front of the whole school who then comes back as a ghost to haunt the school's biggest loser. Scary stuff, right?

Meanwhile, as is standard with the Movie Club, we talk about the movie for about fifteen minutes then veer off and talk about other nonsense for over an hour. Fair warning, you guys. We talk as much about Batman vs. Superman and Sons of Anarchy as we do Teen Spirit. And Glee gets a lot of attention for some reason. We also talk about the fall tv line-up because that's why you're here, to know our thoughts on Gotham. We get so far off track that we forget to talk about the movie's big final joke: a second teenage girl gets electrocuted to death!

Where do we start? The Fatal Finale of the Pretty Little Liars mid-season delivered in every imagineable way so the whole PLP gang unites to break it down! There are Christmas boobs! There is a break in at Radley! Mona is as Mona as ever! Paige's curly hair isn't looking that bad any more! We even learn how the late Mrs. D was quite bed-hopper which leads to a discussion of how Ali and Bethenny are probably sisters or the same person or something. We got a lot to discuss, y'all. 

Meanwhile, we realize that Ali needs to stop wearing the whole jean jacket and floral dress combo right away.

{S05 E11} "No One Here Can Love or Understand Me" with Mike Schmidt!

We have reached the penultimate episode of the Pretty Little Liars summer season. That means it's time for Melissa's secret! Set up your tripod, get the mood lighting right and let's do this! But we can't handle Melissa's secret alone (literally, we were both very confused) so we enlisted help to conquer the madness! We are joined by the host of The 40 Year Old Boy podcast, the man behind the fantastic stand-up album The Big Angry  and a man we can only describe as the Mark Twain of podcasting, ladies and gents, it's Mike Schmidt! He teaches us so many things including how Tanner went to the Columbo school of detectiving. And we wonder why Specer talks to a computer screen so much when she could just call her real life sister. They both have phones. On them. At all times. Seriously, Melissa went to London, not one of Jupiter's moons. 

Meanwhile, the awesome logo for this episode was done by the wickedly talented David Hernandez. If you want some awesome art of your own you can find him at www.ARTbyDMH.com

Also, be a pal and leave us a good review on iTunes. We will be the Toby to your Spencer except we actually finished high school.

{S05 E10} "A Dark Ali" with Chris Mancini!

We are creeping ever closer to the Pretty Little Liars (mid-season) Fatal Finale so to help us get through this dark alley (you guys, it's a double entandre) we had to enlist the help of one half of the Comedy Film Nerds, author, director Chris Mancini! This episode introduces us to Ali's fake kidnapper and teaches that even if you confess to a crime and reveal knowledge of intimate details of said crime the police will still release you from prison within 48 hours. And Spencer is killing it in an avant garde Indiana Jones outfit. She has perhaps never looked better in all of PLL herstory. 

Meanwhile, the girls send weak link Emily to stand up to Ali on their behalf. Shockingly, it doesn't go well.

{S05 E09} "March of Crimes"

Have we mentioned how much we love Lt. Tanner? She gets precious little screen time each ep but Sweet Fancy Moses does she make it count. LT puts the screws to Aria and her mom about Ezra and his connection to Shana. It is amazing! All that plus Emily is riding a bike for some reason, Jenna and Sydney coordinate theiroutfits, we see glimmers of the old Caleb we love and Emily threatens to drown someone for being nice to a blind girl. Pretty Little Liars is better than ever! 

Meanwhile, Noel sits in his car, on the busiest street in town, windows down, listening to a super secret recording at full volume. It's awesome.

Marissa is back to help break down another ep of PLL! And despite the Hannibal reference in the title we don't get to see Mona eat anyone's liver with fava beans and a nice chianti. Sidebar, that is the season of Pretty Little Liars I want to see where Mona goes full Hannibal Lecter and starts cannibalizing those rude little liars. Anyway, what we actually see in this ep is Spencer borrowing Ezra's pervy spy equipment to spy on her sister. Hanna must navigate between the feuding Caleb and Ali. And Emily is put on guard as her mom drops a diabolical bombshell on her: she wants to have Emily's friends over for dinner! 

Meanwhile, Big Rhonda, you guys.

In this episode of Pretty Little Liars we discuss Ali's runaway plan and how these teenagers have instant access to thousands of dollars of cash in the middle of the night. And Lt. Tanner knows the ladies are lying and is hot on the heels of the PLL girls and is about to bust their whole story wide open. And it took her five seconds.

There are lotsa allusions to Ali having been raped while "in captivity." She even goes to a pitch dark doctor's office for an exam. Pretty Little Liars is all geared up for episode 100 so let's just get through episode 99 together, you guys.

To help us wade through the insanity, we have the hilarious and uh-mazing host of the Dork Forest podcast, Jackie Kashian! It is a shipper's wet dream as we get some Emison, some Spoby and lots of Ezria. Way too much Ezria, if we're being frank. Anyway, Ali starts the day by going back to school and ends it by getting in a slap fight with Mona in a church. Some stuff happens in between and Jackie is here to break down each gasp-inducing minute as only she can!

Listen as M & B surf the aftershocks (not a thing) of Ali's return to Rosewood and her mother's death. We talk about the massive police investigation that happens after Ali comes back from the dead the same day her mother is murdered. Oh, wait, that didn't happen. Instead, we talk about the Ali laying on her bed montage that happened instead.

Welcome back to the PLP Summer Movie Club! Here we recap and review some of the more noteable movies made by the stars of our favorite show, Pretty Little Liars. 

We have talked about this one on the podcast before. Now it is time to truly break it down. We watched Spring Breakers starring PLL maven Ashley Benson. Or, as James Franco would say, "Sprang Breeeeeeak." With open hearts and minds we journey down the Harmony Korine rabbit hole for boobies, party montages, lots more boobies and a whole lot more party montages. Oh, and some college girls become drug dealers but believe me, that is secondary to the boobies and party montages.

We have all waited a long time but the season five premiere of Pretty Little Liars happened! Questions got answered and even more got asked. Is Ezra alive? Who shot him? Why are there like 97 A's now? Where did Mona get that fierce jacket? And why is it so deadly to be a minority in Rosewood? Seriously, if you have too much pigment in your skin this town chews you up and spits you out. It was a totally bonkers PLL premiere (in the best way).

And to prove how serious we are, the first movie up is Palo Alto which doesn't really star anyone from PLL. It does, however, have a 90 second cameo by Keegan Allen.

Spencer politely declines rehab. And it totally works. Paily has a falling out. Oh, Paily is Paige and Emily. We didn't know that they had a cutsie couple name either. And, you guys, Hannah wears a jumpsuit so hideous that it distracts from anything she actually did in this episode.
