Click the link for The M&M Report, Episode 8.

Welcome to The M&M Report once again! This week, we started out with some brief recommendations. There’s lots of great TV and movies for you to watch right now, so get to work! We suggest 12 Years a Slave in theaters and Trophy Wife and The Good Wife on your television.

Next, Devin and I each chose our favorite movie. Mark went for a breezy 1980s blockbuster, and Devin chose a methodical 1970s thriller. You’ll have to listen to find out what we chose!

Finally, we invited our friend and colleague Chloe Johnson to talk about Arcade Fire and the band’s new album Reflektor, currently available wherever music is sold and streamed.

Coming soon: more special guests! Devin Doesn’t Like Things: The Sequel! And much more. Thanks for listening!

Read on for the time breakdown.

The M&M Report, Episode 6: We’ve Got a Great Show, So Stick Around!

Mornin Miami

Here’s the link for Episode 6.

This week on The M&M Report, Devin Mitchell and I dug into the first three episodes of Saturday Night Live Season 39 (THIRTY-NINE!), musing on everything from the show’s diversity issues to its spot-on Weekend Update, great and not-so-great sketches and even a defense of Miley Cyrus! Along the way, Devin directed an epic rant at TV critic Ryan McGee, I professed my undying love for Cecily Strong and neither of us could distinguish between the six new cast members.

(SNL returns next Saturday night with host Edward Norton and Janelle Monae. Make sure to tune in the following week as well – Kerry Washington will host and Eminem will perform.)

We followed up our SNL talk with a check-in on the fall season. We offered praise to lots of shows with Wife in the title, Mark offered some reservations about this season of Parenthood, and we both agreed that 24 hours per day simply isn’t enough to catch up on all of the TV we want to watch.

Comments? Questions? Show ideas? Random thoughts on life? Comment and let us know! Enjoy this week’s show.
