There are so many amazing actors who don’t receive the praise or fame we think they deserve. This week on Now Conspiring, the gang talks about their favorite underrated actors. As expected, we had major issues with the word ‘underrated’ and some actual Academy Nominees made it to our list. I know. We apologize.
We also played a new game suggested by one of our listeners, Kiss Marry Kill. You will be surprised who Bridget picks to marry in order to explore the universe.
Later on, Bridget discusses her mixed feelings for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and then geeks out with Adonis about their unconditional love for Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.
Question of the Week: Who is your favorite underrated actor?
We have a full house on this week’s episode. RAK (aka Khan) and Jenny Pan join the podcast along with Maria’s best friend, Evie. After lengthy introductions and many fun tangents, we go around the table to talk about what we have read or watched in the past few weeks. This is quickly followed by Evie saying very embarrassing things about Maria that can never be unheard.
Later on, we play Guess the Disney Song! Where Jenny is overconfident, Sam is confused by everyone’s hardwired knowledge of Disney and a lot of yelling from everybody involved.
It is important to note after a certain point, Sam unofficially quits the game and continues to play his computer game, which we were all able to watch. In case you hear anyone saying ‘Sam! You nearly died’ or ‘Sam exploded’, we mean the game.
Question of the Week: What is your favorite Disney song?
Just because they are famous, doesn’t mean they live up to the hype. This week on Now Conspiring, we talk about the actors and actresses we consider overrated but not before playing a good ol’ round of Would You Rather.
We also discuss a little bit of what we did during our Easter weekend and our family traditions like ultra-challenging egg hunts.
Later on, we reply to all of your comments which were all mostly related to 13 Reasons Why and how it could negatively affect people suffering with depression.
Question of the Week: Who is the most overrated actor?
It’s just us girls this week — Maria and Bridget — talking about personal stuff; and by ”talking” I mean Maria asking questions and Bridget hating Maria for it. And by ”personal stuff” I mean questions about our favorite movies and what they mean to us.
After making Bridget uncomfortable, we move on to talk in depth about the latest Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and how it represents suicide, teenage depression and bullying.
Then, during the Comment on your Comments section, we have a sequel to our previous Science throwdown, although this time it is less intense and more amicable.
