Anglo-Filles Episode 33.5: NBC Can We Live?!

Not only did NBC choose not to pick up Hannibal‘s fourth season, effectively ending the show, but to add insult to injury, they moved the remaining episodes to Saturday. Les Filles have many emotions concerning all of these developments leading to an emergency recording of our second short-form, point-five episode. A regular July episode will still be going up later in the month.

Welcome to episode 20, where Les Filles discuss “strong female characters” and the problems therein, with entertaining side jaunts down Comic Book Way, treatment of women in media including Hannibal, Game of Thrones, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a patented Kayleigh Rant on The Following.

REPOST Anglo-Filles Episode 13: Oh my god it effing rhymes

Greetings, listeners! Fear not, a proper episode is still coming to you in February, for we have many, many thoughts about the Olympics and some of them are even about topics other than the ranking order of Olympic figure skaters’ behinds.

Meanwhile, Hannibal season 2 has a premier date of February 28th. The fannibals are preparing to feast, the only question is will you be a dinner guest or will you be dinner?

You have 2 weeks to catch up on season 1, and to help convince you that you should, here is the episode we recorded last October with the ever-gracious Cleolinda as our guest.

Welcome to Episode 15 of AngloFilles, wherein Les Filles are joined by Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books to discuss the romance genre!
