Agents of SMOOCH #90 December 23, 2022
A Christmas Movie Marathon

Serial Killer Android Angels

It’s that time of year again! We’ve got our ugly sweaters on and some of the agents who are all in the same city gathered for snacks, cocktails, and a daylong holiday movie marathon! We discuss the ineffable definition of chemistry and why some actors have it and some don’t. We also evaluate the quality of the movies we’ve been watching from a variety of criteria:

  • Is it good/good?
  • Is it bad in the best way?
  • Was there chemistry?
  • Did I have a good bingo card round?
  • Does it remind us of Doctor Who?
  • Were the musicians actually playing?
  • Did it have the worst skating scene ever filmed?
