It is "Mad Men" season transition time, which means Jenny gets to force Mike to watch another film. This is the podcast where they force each other to watch the things they love after all. Jenny forces Mike to watch Ang Lee's family drama/food porn film Eat Drink Man Woman. They discuss whether plot lines need resolutions, the unfortunate universality of the patriarchy, and how delicious all of the food in the film looks. Leave us reviews on iTunes!
