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.
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’.
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.
The One with Just Sam and Maria
This week in Part-Time Characters, we talk about movies about making movies, filmmaking and show business. In honor of the Disaster Artist, a movie about the production of The Room, we discuss our favorite movies that concentrate on the art of making a movie, the struggles behind the scenes and the final product the audience gets.

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.
Question of the Week: What Netflix shows or movies do you recommend?
Hey podcast friends, we have an awesome episode this week with a review of The Nice Guys and the Louis C.K. show, Horace and Pete.
More importantly (in my opinion), we have a movie news trivia session via the Now Conspiring Game Show. And each of us argues a movie we think should be considered one of the greatest movies of all time, even though it probably isn’t already.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Each of us pitched a film we think should be considered amongst the greatest films of all time, but currently aren’t. Which of our movies do you agree with, and what is a movie YOU think should be in the conversation of all-time masterpieces?
Oh, and one last thing! The two Sampressions (Sam impressions) we have left for you to vote on are Gilbert Godfried and Stephen Hawking. Sound off your votes!
