This week Part-Time Characters goes back in time to review some classic horror/supernatural movies. We did our best to keep a brave face. It’s another special episode of Retro Reviews, where we each pick a movie we haven’t seen but we have been meaning to watch for quite some time.
We. Are. Back! After a very long break, Part-Time Characters is back and ready to talk about new movie releases, Netflix recommendations and pop culture. We decided to start with a bang and talk about Star Wars latest attempt, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Joined by Bridget and Adonis, we talk about our new Han Solo, the terrible way he got his name, the new characters and how Donald Glover is annoyingly great at everything he does. How did you feel about the Solo movie? Don’t forget to tell us in the comment section!
We have been gone for five months and we wanted to start out slow. That is why we decided to post an episode every other week. That way we can concentrate on making good content and once we find our footing, we will gradually increase to releasing episodes weekly. We are also open to suggestions and any topics you might want to hear us talk about. Don’t forget to email us with any of your ideas.
Question of the Week: Do you think Disney is overdoing the Star Wars movies? What Star Wars anthology movie do you want to see next?

With so much to choose from, it’s hard to sit down and pick one Netflix series that’s worth watching. Not to worry! Hopefully Part-Time Characters can help with any indecisiveness. While Maria works the solo shift in this fictional video store, recurring guest and video store client, Jerry Rodriguez, joins this week’s episode to talk about Netflix shows and specials that are worth a try.
January films have less than an amazing reputation. Coming off the Oscar buzz months and some questionable holiday movies, the New Year always starts with random horror movies, not good enough for the month of October, low budget films and a few indie gems. In this week’s episode of Part-Time Characters, Maria, Adonis and Jenny try to get to the bottom of why January is considered by the film community a ‘dump month’.
In our first episode of 2018, we discuss everything we watched during the holiday break, our opinions over the Disney-Fox deal, and the repercussions it might create.
We start off talking about our Christmas break what we’ve been up to. We also briefly pick our favorite holiday foods and traditions. This is when we all realize Adonis has never had the distinct pleasure of tasting Baileys.
After we each discuss the movies and series we have been watching, we talk about the Disney-Fox deal and what it means for the future of the movie industry. While many are excited because X-Men will finally show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the consequences of this merger will change the industry as we know it.
It is the end of 2017. It is time for fresh starts and welcoming 2018 with open arms. But before we could do that, Part-Time Characters wanted to take a trip down memory lane. This week’s episode is a special holiday treat where our listeners get to hear all of the mistakes we make before the final edit is done.
The episode includes all the outtakes and laughs we had throughout 2017. You will hear all of Sam’s sketch ideas for Gandalf the Wizard, Adonis’s attempt to roast a meat and Bridget’s Long Island and New Jersey accents.
The One Where We Are All Angry #NotMyLuke
Star Wars Episode VII came out in theaters a week ago and Part-Time Characters is finally ready to talk about The Last Jedi with all of the spoilers and rage. Accompanied by our guest, Jerry Rodriguez, we let the hate flow through us as we discuss the out of place humor, the new character pairings and ‘the twist’ that people either love or hate.
Be warned. We talk about every little detail of this movie. There will be all the spoilers. If you haven’t seen this movie yet and don’t want it spoiled for you, maybe come back in a week and have a listen.
