Pat your weave and put on your crowns, queens, because we’ve got some serious chatting to do.

Yes, darlings, we’re back after our holiday break and brimming with 80 minutes of non-stop opinionating on all the things that have happened on the style and pop culture fronts since Christmas. First, we review “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in a totally non-spoilery way, we swear. Then we review “Trumbo,” the new prestige drama biopic starring Bryan Cranston.

With movie reviewing out of the way, we move on to TV talk, specifically the surprisingly exciting trailer for Netflix’s upcoming series The Crown, in which Claire Foy and Matt Smith make an astonishingly on-point Elizabeth and Phillip:

We found ourselves somewhat shocked by how excited we are for this series. If nothing else, it will be a costuming and art direction feast:

You can expect future posts on the show once it’s available, we’re sure.

After that, we move on to fashion and first, give our totally pulled-out-of-thin-air predictions for what the red carpet trends will be for the Golden Globes and the rest of awards season and then offer some of our thoughts on Dolce & Gabbana’s hijab and abaya collection and the reactions of the public toward it. Oh, and we also go off on a tangent about Colton Haynes’ somewhat circumspect coming out this week and how it demonstrates a shift in thinking on how and when celebs should come out.

As you can see, we’ve got a lot of ground to cover, darlings. Best grab yourself a cup of coffee and a danish before we get started.

Pardon us for being repetitive, but thank you once again for your support and you can download/subscribe to the podcast here.

Opinionating: COMMENCE.
