S01E20 – Doctor Zhivago (1965)

It’s Mom’s turn again in this episode! We know she promised a funnier film, but what you got is David Lean’s Doctor Zhivago. After joking around about Mom’s new boyfriend wrecking our recording schedule, we get into the credits, the music, and the general handsomeness of Omar Sharif. We discuss some Russian history, Boris Pasternak, and whatever a Stadtpalais is in German. Also included is a short reminder on what a stepsister actually is and whether or not you should fuck, marry or kill yours – just to be safe, the answer is D) none of the above. To really get you in the mood, this episode truly needed a musical break between acts, which isn’t quite as orchestral as the score for the entr’acte in the film, but thankfully also nowhere near as long. Afterwards we get back into the life choice we all encounter: whether or not to cheat when you’re already in a happy semi-incestuous marriage. We also discuss the essential art of film kissing and how this one’s main smooch ranks. From the balalaika we somehow end up talking about the zither, not to be confused with the sitar.

The trailer for this time was the International Trailer #2 for Tomb Raider! Mom even remembers the Angelina Jolie version despite having never seen those films.
