Yes Mother: What We’ve Been Watching Summer 2016


In this bonus ep, Em and Sue discuss some stuff we’ve been watching since Bates went away.  We discuss (in varying degrees of detail and success): The End of the Tour, Happy Valley, Room, The Great British Baking Show, the newest season of OITNB*, American Gothic, Preacher, The Boy, The Conjouring 2, Em’s weird Mubi movies (Werner Herzog marathons, The Best of Youth, A Spattering of political fueled docs including ones about Greenwich Village in the 60’s, Japan’s nuclear horses, and Pussy Riot), The Invitation,  Bloodline, and Deadwood.  Then we discuss more as we read your feedback and recommends.  (We may or may not have entered an unholy pact with Val.)


*Because of reasons, we decided to do a separate discussion in a bit about Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things.

Yes Mother: Bates Motel S4E10, “Norman” Part I (feedback)


(Because seriously- no safe images represent this episode, we shush them all and look at a puppy and baby orangutans.)

Em and Sue discuss their first reactions to the episode and then we read all your thoughts and feelings about this epic piece of television, that was Bates Motel season 4 finale.


Now baby orangutans, cause they are the cutest of the babies.

Just keep shushing.

Yes, Mother: Bates Motel S4E7 “There’s No Place Like Home”

01873593f70ee578a9ef256a780dc3a793018f4ce4We have just one long podcast for you all this week, so this one includes the recap and feedback (and we read a bad review!) Good times.
Norman discovers the shenanigans that have been going on in his house with his mother while he has been away and lets just say it doesn’t sit well with him. What is a love sick boy to do?  Answer: work the system to get yourself out of there and back home to no doubt terrorize the town sheriff and get your momma back for yourself! Norma cans and sews curtains. Romero buys a big screen tv. Dylan says I love you. And Prince dies 🙁





RIP, Prince
