pop a la carte 118 gameboys

Valerie, Tatiana, Angela and Camille discuss the return of Michael Keaton as Batman in The Flash movie (1:00) and the state of the DCEU as a whole. The conversation then turns to what theaters reopening looks like and which movies are pushed back, such as Tenet and Mulan (8:15). Disney leads up to the rebranding of Splash Mountain to a Princess and the Frog themed ride (17:00), of course.

In television news, we chat about Agents of SHIELD‘s Season 7 and its treatment of Sousa (25:00), with a tangent about German television and V For Vendetta (32:00).

Then things take an unfortunate turn with The Expanse‘s Cas Anvar rampant sexual harassment accusations (38:00), and Nicole Beharie’s gross mistreatment at the hands of Sleepy Hollow producers (48:00).

Finally, it’s Asian Drama Corner (58:00). This week includes the Filipino BLs Gameboys and Hello Stranger, The Korean BL Where Your Eyes Linger, and the recently wrapped-up fantasies King The Eternal Monarch and Mystic Pop-Up Bar.
