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: We’re doing a massive entry in our periodic Why Should I Listen to You segment and we’re running down our favorite movies of the 2000s. The New York Times did it a few weeks back, so why not us? In our second topic, we’ll be talking about the new Netflix show, Friends from College starring Keegan-Michael Key, Cobie Smulders and Fred Savage. Is the Suddenly Susan of the Prestige TV Era? We’ll let you know (Psst, the answer is yes). Plus quick reviews of Girls Trip and Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets
