The Podcast: Episode 157 – The Rom-Com Strikes Back

     August 24, 2018


This week on The Podcast, we’re talking about the return of the rom-com through the lens of three recent releases: Set It Up, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and Crazy Rich Asians. We talk about why the rom-com died off, why these movies revitalize it, the unfair criticisms of the genre, how these movies build on what came before, what makes the unique, and much more. We then move into a mailbag to answer your questions before finishing up with Recently Watched.
