The Dorking Out Show

The show for anyone who loves to dork out about the stories in pop culture that we love. That means TV and movies, books and podcasts, and any other kind of engaging storytelling we can find. We talk about Star Wars and Gilmore Girls, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Trek, Netflix and Amazon, Serial and S-Town and, and, and... Every week noted TV critic and blogger Sonia Mansfield and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Christopher Allan Smith talk about movies, TV, books and more from both a fan and creator perspective. Think of it as a great conversation over drinks with your quick, clever friends who know about a lot.

Show Rundown: In this week’s episode we review the return of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I was a big fan of the show, and Smith has never watched the show. It’s going to be an interesting discussion. Then Peter Brown, associate editor of Assignment X, stops by to chat about the season finale of “Westworld.” And finally, we try to get into a festive mood and share our favorite holiday movies. All of that, plus Bryan Fuller on Star Trek: Discovery and friend of the show Tony Hicks on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He's seen 30-minutes of it, so...

Is the Internet ruining TV?

Topic 3: Our Favorite Holiday Movies
