Episode 16: For Your Consideration

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!

Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:

  • This Week in Comics
    Young Avengers #14, Avengers Assemble #22 and Saga #17 | Three of our favorite series continue to deliver great characters, great art, and great dialog, but Young Avengers and Saga were both a little thin on plot this month. I mean, come on, Saga, "the opposite of war is fucking"? That doesn't even make sense. Stay tuned for three new series coming in early 2014: Black Widow, Loki: Agent of Asgard and Ms. Marvel (the latter two of which we've discussed on the show previously).
  • This Week in Television
    Our favorite holiday specials! | Becca was hipster before it was cool, so her favorite Christmas special is that one Rankin & Bass stop-motion movie you've never heard of, The Leprechauns' Christmas Gold. Allison goes in for the classics, A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! We also give honorable mentions to Dr. Who episode "A Christmas Carol," Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular, and Punkin Chunkin, while wondering how the Muppets were able to work with Lady Gaga after she made clothes out of their brethren on not one, but two, previous occasions.
  • TWiLLies: The Best of 2013
    We award TWiLLies to the best books, comic books, makeovers and more of 2013! Find out what our favorites were and hit the comments below to tell us yours! We also make our 2014 Pop Culture Resolutions. We hope that recording them for posterity will keep us honest! If you're looking for more Best (and Worst) of 2013 lists, TIME's got you covered. Or you can read Emily Nussbaum at the New Yorker talking about why she hates top-ten lists.
