VOICEOVER:

[singing]

Trey Gerrald:

Ooo, hello.

Chelsey Donn:

Hi.

Chelsey Donn:

It's so spooky being in the dark.

Trey Gerrald:

So Scary.

Trey Gerrald:

Hello everyone, welcome to Review that Review, the podcast dedicated to reviewing-

Chelsey Donn:

Reviews.

Chelsey Donn:

We're just like Siskel and Ebert, only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we rate

Trey Gerrald:

That's Chelsey Donn.

Chelsey Donn:

And that's Trey Gerrald.

Trey Gerrald:

And together, we are

VOICEOVER:

The Review Queens.

Trey Gerrald:

Happy Halloween Review Queens.

Trey Gerrald:

Chelsey and I are currently on our recording apparatus, which is called Zoom and we have our

Chelsey Donn:

Halloween.

Trey Gerrald:

Woo, all right, so we're gonna turn our screens on, you ready?

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, I'm ready.

Trey Gerrald:

Three, two, one, go.

Chelsey Donn:

Ah.

Trey Gerrald:

Ah.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Happy Halloween.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God, happy Halloween.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey, you're beautiful.

Trey Gerrald:

I can't see you, where are you?

Trey Gerrald:

Chelsey is dressed as Where's Waldo and I can't see her.

Chelsey Donn:

I know, I know, you're gonna have to keep looking, keep looking.

Chelsey Donn:

Here I am, here I am, look.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, what I'm looking at is Trey dressed as Drew Barrymore from Scream but like way prettier.

Trey Gerrald:

I have my Jiffy Pop.

Chelsey Donn:

She has Jiffy Pop, she's on the phone, she's calling, like, he's in the house.

Trey Gerrald:

Is he behind me?

Chelsey Donn:

There he is.

Chelsey Donn:

Ah.

Trey Gerrald:

Ah.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you see, I hung the mask.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you see him?

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, first of all, let's talk about Trey for just one second

Chelsey Donn:

You guys-

Trey Gerrald:

Mm.

Chelsey Donn:

She's so beautiful.

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

She has a pink glow behind here.

Chelsey Donn:

There's like some sort of an LED light show happening behind Drew.

Trey Gerrald:

Well that's what I always have, but tonight it's red instead of white.

Chelsey Donn:

Right, but it's this like hot pink, sexy hot pink that just goes with the look so well

Chelsey Donn:

I'm like intimidated by your beauty.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm not even gonna lie.

Trey Gerrald:

Well I also have touch up your appearance on.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, you guys, this is worth the Patreon alone, just so you can see

Chelsey Donn:

Like, is that a full lash?

Trey Gerrald:

It is.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm getting like flashbacks to that, when we did that lash review.

Chelsey Donn:

Like-

Trey Gerrald:

I have full lashes and I even have two little teeny babies on the bottom.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god, I love her.

Trey Gerrald:

I started getting ready for this recording four hours ago!

Chelsey Donn:

I was gonna say, you must have, I started getting ready for

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God, Trey.

Trey Gerrald:

You look great.

Trey Gerrald:

So did you find the beanie?

Chelsey Donn:

I found the beanie.

Trey Gerrald:

Perfect.

Chelsey Donn:

She's, she's bobby pinned and there's a lot to negotiate 'cause we got a

Chelsey Donn:

You, you went head...

Chelsey Donn:

oh no, you got a fancy headset, oh, I like that.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, I put in these like old timey Apple-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Headsets because this wig is too short, that I did attempt-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

To, um, put the headset on, but it sort of messed up the illusion, you know?

Trey Gerrald:

It's all about illusion.

Chelsey Donn:

I feel like I, I don't even know if I can refer to you as Trey in this episode.

Chelsey Donn:

Am I calling you Drew?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, I just, I feel like I have a new cohost.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you know what her name is in the movie?

Chelsey Donn:

I don't, I'm like really afraid of all scary movies, so I just...

Chelsey Donn:

I know the scene, but I-

Trey Gerrald:

Have you ever...

Trey Gerrald:

have you never seen Scream?

Chelsey Donn:

I've seen it, but I, I think I like closed my eyes through some of it and like-

Trey Gerrald:

Oh yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Probably was distracted and not really paying attention

Chelsey Donn:

Like I'm not a horror movie girl.

Chelsey Donn:

I know the mask...

Chelsey Donn:

what's her name?

Chelsey Donn:

Sorry.

Trey Gerrald:

Her name is-

Chelsey Donn:

Weathers!

Trey Gerrald:

Ca- Casey Becker.

Trey Gerrald:

No, Gale Weathers, that's Courtney Cox's character.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Oh, Casey.

Trey Gerrald:

'Casey?

Trey Gerrald:

Baby?' That's what the mom says when she sees her strung up in a tree, spoiler al- alert.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh.

Chelsey Donn:

It's okay, if y'all haven't see it by now.

Chelsey Donn:

And there's a knife, you guys, a bloody knife.

Trey Gerrald:

The blood.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh no sorry, but the blood is-

Trey Gerrald:

Rhinestones.

Chelsey Donn:

Did you bejewel that yourself?

Trey Gerrald:

I did.

Trey Gerrald:

You know this but I, I wanted to do...

Trey Gerrald:

I wanted to do the women of Scream, me and my husband and my dogs, family, we do

Trey Gerrald:

he didn't think they'd be recognizable.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

So I decided.

Trey Gerrald:

Uh, I would just do it on my own.

Trey Gerrald:

So I did all of the women...

Trey Gerrald:

it's on my Instagram.

Trey Gerrald:

So yeah, so I did bedazzle this, oh, with, uh, two different color rhinestones.

Chelsey Donn:

You're se- yes I see it, 'cause it really makes it pop.

Trey Gerrald:

This was my hobby before I had, um, a podcast.

Trey Gerrald:

Speaking of-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Do you have any Halloween complaints?

Trey Gerrald:

'Cause I think that you should have the opportunity to-

VOICEOVER:

Lodge a Compliant.

Chelsey Donn:

You know when you have, like, a jar or a water bottle and it has like

Chelsey Donn:

Like it's, it's meant to keep it locked and closed and so that no water comes

Trey Gerrald:

Mm-hmm [affirmative].

Chelsey Donn:

But when they start to fall off, it's like a-

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

Downhill battle from there.

Chelsey Donn:

Like you, you just know it's near the end.

Trey Gerrald:

This is the internal, like, little liner piece inside-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

That keeps the suction going.

Chelsey Donn:

And then, like I, I bought this water bottle for Goldie that I love-

Trey Gerrald:

Mm.

Chelsey Donn:

It's amazing and it has this amazing contraption where basically you can, you can

Chelsey Donn:

Amazing but that, that thing is starting to come off and so sometimes it can't close-

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Exactly the way that it's supposed to close and we've been having

Trey Gerrald:

I hear you, and the good thing about our Review That Review water bottles-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Is that they're insulated and they don't have a separate little silicon piece.

Chelsey Donn:

No, there's no separate silicon piece.

Chelsey Donn:

This is all...

Chelsey Donn:

this is a two piece item that one person who is on our mailing list is going to win, so-

Trey Gerrald:

It is a great water bottle.

Trey Gerrald:

Uh, obviously it's our podcast, but every time I drink out of it, I get excited.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, it's true.

Chelsey Donn:

All right, Trey, what about you?

Trey Gerrald:

It's a good complaint, that is-

Chelsey Donn:

Thank you.

Trey Gerrald:

One of those things where it's like the shelf life of that

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Of this one little piece, which is really annoying.

Chelsey Donn:

And it's like perfect before then, you know?

Chelsey Donn:

So anyway, that's my complaint.

Chelsey Donn:

Let's get something off your chest.

Chelsey Donn:

What is it?

Chelsey Donn:

What's going on?

Trey Gerrald:

So, okay, so today, my complaint is...

Trey Gerrald:

I'm afraid it might be a little bit ageist, so-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

My intention is not ageist, uh, attacks-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Something that really does annoy me is-

Chelsey Donn:

Mm-hmm [affirmative].

Trey Gerrald:

It's, it's usually something that occurs when you are over a certain age.

Trey Gerrald:

But not always.

Trey Gerrald:

It really bothers me when people keep the clicking sound on their iPhone when they're texting.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god.

Trey Gerrald:

So anytime you're next to someone and it's like...

Trey Gerrald:

it is so-

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god.

Trey Gerrald:

That is so annoying.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

It does occur over like family gatherings-

Chelsey Donn:

Sure.

Trey Gerrald:

Where someone will be texting and it's like we're all on the

Trey Gerrald:

like it's not even a real thing, like that's a totally fake sound-

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

To emulate keyboards-

Chelsey Donn:

A typewriter.

Trey Gerrald:

Which is, right, which was originally the type writer-

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Which actually made the sounds because it was hitting

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

So it just...

Trey Gerrald:

it really serves no point.

Trey Gerrald:

There's no reason to have it.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, I was gonna say, I mean you brought it up, but like I was gonna say you

Chelsey Donn:

Like I must turn it off immediately."

Chelsey Donn:

Like I, like will not do anything else until I get this setting off.

Chelsey Donn:

My god, that's annoying.

Chelsey Donn:

But to them, it's not so annoying, and, and it's also like too many steps to turn it off.

Chelsey Donn:

Why don't you just le- like what do you think...

Chelsey Donn:

is there anybody that's really getting enjoyment out of it?

Trey Gerrald:

I, um, so I will say, there is something pleasurable about the sound.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm also a person that finds gasoline to smell good, even though that's not-

Chelsey Donn:

Sure.

Trey Gerrald:

You know, not really a go- pleasant smell.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, there is something satisfying about the clicking.

Chelsey Donn:

Sure.

Trey Gerrald:

But, when it's not your phone and you have nothing to do with

Chelsey Donn:

Random clicking?

Trey Gerrald:

Gosh it really bothers me.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

So, um, I've had that on my list for awhile and I've been a little concerned about

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know about you.

Trey Gerrald:

It, it does occur to me as a nuisance, and so I have to lodge it and put it in our ledger of

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, it's, it's, it's been heard and it's also been notated that it

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Then we're good.

Chelsey Donn:

Yup.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Well here we are, should we, should we, um, jump into our

Chelsey Donn:

I think we definitely should and do you think that we should both

Trey Gerrald:

Oh that's good.

Trey Gerrald:

We'll do, yeah, well yes.

Trey Gerrald:

I have, I have a lot of Halloween stories that I can share.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm very into Halloween.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I have one that I'm thinking of, so just wanted to like take this opportunity to say if

Trey Gerrald:

I love that.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, well, should we jump into some online reviews, Chelsey dear?

Chelsey Donn:

I think we should, am I first today?

Trey Gerrald:

You are.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God, yay, I feel like I haven't been first in awhile, but I

Trey Gerrald:

Ah.

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] All right.

Chelsey Donn:

As you guys know, we are your trusty Review Queens, we each bring in a review from the

Trey Gerrald:

We read you the review, we break it down and rate the impact of the

Trey Gerrald:

It's a very regal process that we call

VOICEOVER:

Assess That Kvetch!

Trey Gerrald:

And obviously we're gonna be Halloween theme today and Chelsey girl-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Take it away RQ.

VOICEOVER:

Review that Review.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Do we wanna talk about how we picked the same review or do we wanna wait until I read mine?

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

So, you know, we have discussed this before, we don't share what

Trey Gerrald:

So, today-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

We realized that Chelsey and I both picked the same-

Chelsey Donn:

Independently.

Trey Gerrald:

Independently on our 21st episode.

Chelsey Donn:

We did it.

Trey Gerrald:

We picked the same exact review.

Trey Gerrald:

So I'm curious to see if it was the same review.

Chelsey Donn:

I am so curious to hear 'cause I wanna say I looked a long time and I, I

Trey Gerrald:

Great.

Chelsey Donn:

Muy Malo, M-U-Y M-A-L-O.

Chelsey Donn:

Now, you know, I only took like three or four years of Spanish I wanna say, in college,

Chelsey Donn:

So, is Muy Malo, muy malo, um, or muy bueno?

Chelsey Donn:

I think we will have to listen to the review to find out.

Chelsey Donn:

It's a one star review of Ruby's Giant Inflatable Dinosaur Suit Costume.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

If you'd like to experience the horror of having a large plastic bag stuck

Chelsey Donn:

Seriously, this is a huge suffocation hazard.

Chelsey Donn:

The tiny fan barely pumps enough air to keep the plastic off your body.

Chelsey Donn:

Getting into the costume is only slightly easier than trying to extract yourself from

Chelsey Donn:

Imagine trying to look through a plastic storage bin from Walmart, but then skew the

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

Upon dawning the garment, anyone even remotely warm blooded begins to

Chelsey Donn:

Feeling claustrophobic yet?

Chelsey Donn:

You haven't even put your feet on, which guess what?

Chelsey Donn:

You can't reach because bending over isn't really possible.

Chelsey Donn:

Your cries to 'take this infernal theropod off me' cannot be heard.

Chelsey Donn:

Your voice has been dampened by thick plastic.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh my god.

Chelsey Donn:

And your movements are limited to thrashing like someone

Chelsey Donn:

You can't see out of it, so the antics of stumbling around seem very cheery to your

Chelsey Donn:

The thin air further blocks your vision and the amazingly loud motor begins to let off a

Chelsey Donn:

Once you actually fall, from lack of air, your friends should figure out something's wrong, lean

Chelsey Donn:

They will then pull you limp from the T-Rex encased in the afterbirth of your

Chelsey Donn:

Congrats, you purchased an inflatable T-rex costume.

Chelsey Donn:

Seriously, this thing is awful.

Chelsey Donn:

Don't purchase it.

Trey Gerrald:

Oh.

Trey Gerrald:

Muy Malo.

Chelsey Donn:

Muy Malo had a muy malo experience.

Trey Gerrald:

I did not find this review.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh really?

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, Muy Malo, I actually really do appreciate this review because-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

They bring up a lot of points I was, I was curious what the experience

Chelsey Donn:

Correct.

Trey Gerrald:

Would be, so I actually really do appreciate the context,

Trey Gerrald:

That was my main question-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

If this was like this little like plastic square to see out of in the, like, chest,

Chelsey Donn:

Gross.

Trey Gerrald:

Too much.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

And then also, the, the fact that you're in...

Chelsey Donn:

well just so you know, that's why I was searching for four hours for, like, this

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

Like you got...

Chelsey Donn:

first of all you're humongous, so you can't even like, turn to get a crudités item or

Chelsey Donn:

it just seemed terrible to me and I wanted someone to walk me through that experience.

Chelsey Donn:

And this was the first person that I found that, that did that.

Chelsey Donn:

Another thought that I had about Muy Malo was now I definitely felt like they were giving us

Chelsey Donn:

That being said, pretty good.

Chelsey Donn:

You know, like, I've seen a lot of open mic comics that have had worse material than this.

Chelsey Donn:

I think they were definitely trying to give us humor.

Chelsey Donn:

Now, my, my question about the humor, because I, it's there and it was with intention, do

Trey Gerrald:

I, I appreciate that you're bringing this up 'cause I, I actually

Chelsey Donn:

Right, same.

Trey Gerrald:

Like I thought that was really funny.

Trey Gerrald:

But then when it got to like-

Trey Gerrald:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Then you're gonna, like, fall over and then your friends gonna unzip you

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And then you're gonna feel stupid, that I sort of felt like, uh, now you're like-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, that's what I mean by the open mic comedy bit.

Chelsey Donn:

It's like we got this, like, funny bit and then we just decided to keep building on it,

Trey Gerrald:

I guess my, my thought is like I'm not coming to the review

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And I do think the impact of the review would be stronger if

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Because it didn't occur to me that the friend would have to unzip you.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I guess you can't zip yourself up, that you have to have someone do that, right?

Chelsey Donn:

Well, yeah, you can't unzip yourself when you're in there.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, god forbid you should need to go to the bathroom and you're

Chelsey Donn:

Like, it's just, it just seems like such a high liability Halloween costume, you know?

Trey Gerrald:

It on- it just seems thoroughly impractical.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

It seems like it would be funny outside-

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I cannot imagine going to a Halloween party-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

You can't do, you can't do it.

Chelsey Donn:

No, you can't.

Trey Gerrald:

I really am like taken by this review.

Trey Gerrald:

The va- it really is valuable to me because they really walk through all of

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

They really do.

Chelsey Donn:

Like everything about this review would make me not want to be in this.

Trey Gerrald:

It makes me feel very sticky.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

It makes me feel very claustrophobic.

Chelsey Donn:

"Feeling claustrophobic yet?"

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, yes I am.

Trey Gerrald:

They said that it is ten pounds of plastic.

Trey Gerrald:

That can't be accurate.

Chelsey Donn:

I think it can.

Trey Gerrald:

Really?

Chelsey Donn:

I do because a lot of the reviews for these inflatables talked about how the pumps

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, I saw those too.

Chelsey Donn:

And that to me would lead me to believe that it must be quite heavy and

Chelsey Donn:

I, I think that that's not so crazy.

Trey Gerrald:

I also came across a lot of reviews saying that the zipper broke

Chelsey Donn:

Same, I came across those, too.

Trey Gerrald:

Did you come across any pictures of people that had to duct tape holes closed?

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

'Cause that's the most hilarious part.

Chelsey Donn:

I did, especially the ones that were, uh, I know we're getting

Trey Gerrald:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

My child was crying and like all I could do was duct tape his tears away, you know?

Trey Gerrald:

I do think if, if, when we have our first live show, we both have

Trey Gerrald:

I think it's been decided.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god.

Trey Gerrald:

Even though I do think that the, I do think that this

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

I do think that Muy Malo is being truthful.

Trey Gerrald:

The humor isn't really there.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean it's sort of like, uh, uh, it's not really that funny to me.

Trey Gerrald:

I find this to be incredibly valuable, and I think the impact is that...

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I think it's just kind of fun and crazy to like-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Be in this air inflatable thing.

Trey Gerrald:

But, what is the spelling grammar like?

Chelsey Donn:

Spelling grammar is excellent.

Chelsey Donn:

Really, really solid I'd say.

Chelsey Donn:

In fact, they, they use like some significant words I didn't even really

Chelsey Donn:

I don't even know what a theropod is.

Chelsey Donn:

Is that bad?

Trey Gerrald:

I didn't know what that was either, no.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Well-

Chelsey Donn:

I think I can crown it.

Trey Gerrald:

I think I can crown this too, yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Let's do it.

Trey Gerrald:

All right, so Chelsey and I each have our own set of one to five

VOICEOVER:

The Queens are Tabulating.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm ready, you ready?

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, I'm ready.

VOICEOVER:

Total Score.

Trey Gerrald:

Tie.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, tie, ta- ta- [laughs] Trey and I are both holding up four crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

All right, Trey, let us know, why did you decide four crowns for Muy Malo?

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I really found this to be a thoroughly valuable, well written review.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

The comedy is where it lost me.

Trey Gerrald:

I wanted to do...

Trey Gerrald:

I almost did four and a half, but eh, I do, I, I really believe the review, I

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I just...

Trey Gerrald:

because they attempted humor and I, and personally felt it fall flat-

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I decided to go with four.

Trey Gerrald:

I took one crown away for that.

Trey Gerrald:

What about you?

Trey Gerrald:

Why did you say four?

Chelsey Donn:

I said four because I thought, like you, like you actually brought up

Chelsey Donn:

Stick to the narrative.

Chelsey Donn:

Like we can, we can still put in jokes and keep it to what actually happened and I think the

Trey Gerrald:

Fair, yeah, I agree.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Very fun.

Trey Gerrald:

Well-

Chelsey Donn:

Thanks.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's take a quick break and when we come back, we can get into my review.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god, I can't wait.

Trey Gerrald:

B-R-B.

VOICEOVER:

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Hi, okay, [laughs] sorry.

Chelsey Donn:

I just got lost in your beautiful eyes.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, so Trey and I have each picked a rotten, scathing, pithy one star zinger

Trey Gerrald:

Just like Queen Meryl who does it all.

Chelsey Donn:

Has she done a halloween movie?

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

Before the clock runs out.

Trey Gerrald:

Death Becomes Her.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh yeah, that's true.

Chelsey Donn:

Death Becomes Her, duh.

Chelsey Donn:

And Goldie Hawn, you know?

Chelsey Donn:

Goldie, Goldie.

Trey Gerrald:

That's right.

Chelsey Donn:

Anyway, all right Trey, where is your one star zinger from today?

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, I have two and I'm really not sure which one to pick.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm gonna move my mouse around until I pick.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

I think that on this Halloween themed Meryl Go Round, 'cause you showed it to me and I

Chelsey Donn:

I feel like in a really, like, fierce way, you're riding like a giant version of

Chelsey Donn:

And you're like just this bad ass riding on this knife, like yeah, stay

Trey Gerrald:

Would you call me a Scream Queen?

Chelsey Donn:

I would say you are undeniably a Scream Queen riding on that fancy bedazzled knife.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, so-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

My review today is from Amazon dot com, this is a one star review from Jennifer R.

Chelsey Donn:

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, sure.

Trey Gerrald:

Jennifer R, one star review, subject is "not as described", and the

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs] Because it's a slutty Freddie Kreugar shirt dress.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Alright.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, Trey, do you feel ready?

Trey Gerrald:

I'm ready, I'm strapped in on my bloody knife.

I feel like by the fact that I said not a second more, I don't

Chelsey Donn:

Would I, do I feel generous today on this All Hallow's eve?

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, fine.

Trey Gerrald:

Like three days ago, I was in the shower and I was thinking about how I get stuck

Chelsey Donn:

Hey, I'm walking here.

Trey Gerrald:

And like say that in, say that in your head and then you'll be

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, it's really the clock that does it.

Chelsey Donn:

It's not that you're not able to.

Chelsey Donn:

First of all, you cashed in six with opera diva, so that is-

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Excellent, Trey.

Trey Gerrald:

Thank you.

Chelsey Donn:

And I just wanted to say quickly, you know, um, that that's really

Trey Gerrald:

Oh.

Chelsey Donn:

Is in order to do a language you, think of one sentence or

Chelsey Donn:

Good job.

Trey Gerrald:

Ah, just, uh, call me an accent expert.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna send you your MFA in the mail, okay?

Trey Gerrald:

Oh great, thank you.

Trey Gerrald:

That was easy.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

All right, Chels.

Trey Gerrald:

What is your zinger for today?

Chelsey Donn:

All right, I'm so glad you asked.

Chelsey Donn:

My zinger is for Stranger Things, the Drive Into Experience in Los Angeles.

Trey Gerrald:

Ooo.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, this zinger is written by Nicole M.

Chelsey Donn:

Is it okay if in this context, I give away her whole name?

Trey Gerrald:

Sure.

Chelsey Donn:

I think it's fine.

Chelsey Donn:

She, I don't know if she's listening.

Chelsey Donn:

Her name is Nicole Mary Jane.

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs]

Chelsey Donn:

Okay?

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

You'll see why and her one star zinger for this Stranger

Chelsey Donn:

In the state of California?

Chelsey Donn:

Unprofessional!"

Trey Gerrald:

So was it marijuana?

Chelsey Donn:

For sure.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Right?

Trey Gerrald:

Oh my, it's kind of long.

Chelsey Donn:

It's...

Chelsey Donn:

this is a long one, I know.

Trey Gerrald:

I just, I am so not a...

Trey Gerrald:

I mean I, I can do a haunted hay ride, that pushes it.

Trey Gerrald:

I can't do any sort of like haunted house thing, so like doing that stoned, no.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean it's just like-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Even worse for me.

Chelsey Donn:

Well it's LA, I mean, like I'm not surprised.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

But it's just pretty funny that they're like, "Our medicine."

Chelsey Donn:

you know?

Trey Gerrald:

Mary Jane.

Chelsey Donn:

Mary Jane.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, Nicole Mary Jane.

Trey Gerrald:

All right, so tonight, you are gonna be strapped in-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

On Wanda, the female version of Waldo.

Chelsey Donn:

Is that a thing?

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, he's married to Wanda.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh yeah, maybe I knew that.

Trey Gerrald:

And they have a dog, I forget the dog's name.

Trey Gerrald:

Wa-

Chelsey Donn:

Oh yeah, the dog.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, okay, great.

Chelsey Donn:

Me and Wanda going round the Meryl-Go-Round.

Trey Gerrald:

Should I say you're strapped in on that walking cane?

Trey Gerrald:

You're strapped in on the walking cane.

Chelsey Donn:

I ho- I was like hoping you were gonna say that 'cause I didn't bring it today, so.

Trey Gerrald:

So, all right, here you go, are you ready?

Chelsey Donn:

Got my satchel ready and let's do this.

VOICEOVER:

Three, two, one, go

VOICEOVER:

Disney.

VOICEOVER:

VOICEOVER:

Unprofessional.

VOICEOVER:

Opera diva.

VOICEOVER:

Oh no.

VOICEOVER:

VOICEOVER:

VOICEOVER:

[laughs] I can't even do it.

VOICEOVER:

Unprofessional.

VOICEOVER:

Adult film.

VOICEOVER:

Kicked us out due to our medication in the state of California, unprofessional.

VOICEOVER:

Horror movie.

VOICEOVER:

Kicked us out

VOICEOVER:

due to our medication in the state of California, unprofessional.

VOICEOVER:

Three, two, one.

VOICEOVER:

That's all.

Trey Gerrald:

[laughs] Oh god that was really funny.

Trey Gerrald:

So you got four, queen.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, I feel great about that considering how long

Chelsey Donn:

It's Halloween, you showed up in such an amazing way and I'm happy to announce you

Trey Gerrald:

Thank you.

Trey Gerrald:

Casey has to win something 'cause she doesn't win her life.

Chelsey Donn:

She does.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Well she won at Meryl Go Round.

VOICEOVER:

Review that Review.

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Chelsey Donn:

We are back from that rousing game break and it's your turn, Trey, who has his Jiffy Pop ready.

Chelsey Donn:

Where's your review form this week, Trey?

Trey Gerrald:

Well, about, um, two hours ago I was gonna do a review from Amazon-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

For an inflatable dinosaur.

Trey Gerrald:

But, um, I also found this other review, so-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

And I'm happy with it.

Trey Gerrald:

Today I'm going to be doing a review from Yelp.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

This is one star, for Abracadabra, NYC.

Trey Gerrald:

Abracadabra is this like ginormous multilevel...

Trey Gerrald:

I think it's a Halloween store, but it's also like-

Chelsey Donn:

It's like a year round costume store.

Trey Gerrald:

Costume, makeup.

Chelsey Donn:

That really amps up around halloween.

Trey Gerrald:

But it feels spooky and Halloweeny, but is like a permanent,

Chelsey Donn:

Correct.

Trey Gerrald:

In Manhattan.

Trey Gerrald:

So, one star review, this is from Mariana L.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, Mariana.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

This huge costume and prop emporium recently changed management

Trey Gerrald:

As you walk into the entrance, everything around you looks like it has been sitting

Trey Gerrald:

I asked for pith helmets and someone who clearly neither speaks English nor understands it goes

Trey Gerrald:

After about 30 minutes of frustration and looking around the store myself, I try to ask the manager

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

He has been on the phone the entire time for what seems to be

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Pausing only to tell another potential customer that a used, broken, disco

Trey Gerrald:

I inquired about a specific item I saw on their website that I had

Trey Gerrald:

The Tony poseur tells me that the site and the store aren't the same thing,

Trey Gerrald:

Finally, I see something that slightly resembles a pith helmet and inquire about it.

Trey Gerrald:

It turns out to be really used, missing parts, broken, and unusable.

Trey Gerrald:

Even so, this douche bag has the nerve to tell me that I can quote, unquote, have

Trey Gerrald:

I couldn't spend money here if I shot it up that loser's ass with a two headed-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Dildo.

Trey Gerrald:

I apologize for being so crass.

Trey Gerrald:

If you read my other reviews, you will see that this review is a huge departure

Trey Gerrald:

The good news, I ended up finding brand new, great looking pith helmets at

Trey Gerrald:

The other store's staff was very helpful, nice, and conducted themselves with class.

Trey Gerrald:

Also, the much more superior and brand new product was $15.

Chelsey Donn:

Whooo, wow, wow, Mariana.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Chelsey Donn:

So, first of all, my, my first issue with the review that I'll just bring up-

Trey Gerrald:

Yes?

Chelsey Donn:

What the heck is a pith helmet?

Trey Gerrald:

I gotta look it up 'cause I don't know either.

Chelsey Donn:

Like for...

Chelsey Donn:

the most frustrating thing about this review to me is like you're making it seem

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I understand, helmets, hats, like that, that seems like that could be where it would be.

Chelsey Donn:

Like-

Trey Gerrald:

Oh.

Chelsey Donn:

If they don't know what it is, why, why are they not explaining it to us, even like

Trey Gerrald:

So, a pith helmet is a safari helmet.

Trey Gerrald:

Do you know like the villain in Jumanji?

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Like that the dad plays, you know, like in Peter Pan.

Chelsey Donn:

So why wouldn't that be with like hats?

Chelsey Donn:

That doesn't seem so odd to me that that would be-

Trey Gerrald:

I agree with you.

Chelsey Donn:

In the hat section.

Trey Gerrald:

It would be in the hat section you would think.

Chelsey Donn:

I just think that's so weird.

Chelsey Donn:

Like a very odd thing to attack, you know?

Chelsey Donn:

And then, what do you think about the fact that the store...

Chelsey Donn:

god, so many things, the store has the separate online in store relationship and the fact that...

Chelsey Donn:

does it seem like Mariann called and asked like, "Hey, I saw this thing online,

Chelsey Donn:

And then all of the sudden they were trying to claim no affiliation?

Trey Gerrald:

Well the, I was confused about that because it's confusing to me

Chelsey Donn:

Right, same.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, it, it kind of makes a little bit of sense because especially if

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe they've taken that off site, they've put it in a warehouse,

Chelsey Donn:

That doesn't seem so weird to me.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I just think Mariana was mean in this review, and I know that they wanted

Chelsey Donn:

Did you notice that?

Trey Gerrald:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, all the sudden we got this prologue to what happened after you

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know, I, I don't know if this would make me not buy something at

Trey Gerrald:

It's interesting to me because the description of it looking like everything

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

It does have a feeling of, like, if you get a ba- a costume off the rack that's

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

That doesn't seem that out of bounds for me.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Um, from my experience having been there.

Trey Gerrald:

Also, I do think the disco balls are always outrageously experience.

Trey Gerrald:

But ma- Mariana really goes through like so many things are broken or-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Like pre-used.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, similar to the guy that was staying at the hotel

Chelsey Donn:

It's like are you an inspection officer, like going through each item

Chelsey Donn:

They, they were bragging about the other store and how it was brand new.

Chelsey Donn:

So that was, that's like my point, I guess, for what you were just saying is

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

This is very old, in fact, I had a very negative [laughs] situation working

Chelsey Donn:

Like, it was like a nightmare.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, so-

Trey Gerrald:

There, so there was another Abracadabra review that was like two sentences-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

But it said, "A spider crawled out of this wig."

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Yeah, so I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

I, I believe that this experience happened.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I do think that there's something going on emotionally with Mariana-

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

That they went from zero to 100 so quickly-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Even though they've prefaced that this is out of character for them, but-

Chelsey Donn:

Agreed.

Trey Gerrald:

To mention a double headed dildo-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Bizarre.

Trey Gerrald:

As like a punishment, like, dildos are not for punishment, so that's already

Chelsey Donn:

And also, like, comparing him to Tony Soprano, like the whole thing

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Offensive.

Trey Gerrald:

Also-

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

They're a hypocrite because the epilogue says that the other

Trey Gerrald:

Well it doesn't seem like Mariana is very classy in the way that they

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Look alike.

Chelsey Donn:

Look alike.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, I just, I didn't, I didn't like their whole thing and I think that it's unfortunate when

Chelsey Donn:

Don't expect it, don't expect things to not be broken because they're vintage and

Chelsey Donn:

Um, if you have different expectations, go elsewhere, but that message really gets muddied.

Trey Gerrald:

Especially with the indignation that someone didn't know what a pith helmet is.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

I understand that like this is a costume place and so you would think that

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

But I don't know, I feel like if I was looking for something that specific,

Chelsey Donn:

Totally agree.

Trey Gerrald:

The spelling here is kind of funny.

Trey Gerrald:

Like-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm curious, maybe Mariana is not from the United States-

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Because they say the Tony poser is spelled P-O-S-E-U-R.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh interesting.

Trey Gerrald:

Seems very British to me.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Or maybe Canadian, I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

I also loved when they say that the person went behind a velvet rope,

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Like that's so funny, like-

Chelsey Donn:

Right, right, right, right.

Trey Gerrald:

Like a nonverbal like ah, exclamation mark.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, they definitely seem like they, they played around

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know, the value here, I don't think it's a deal breaker for me

Chelsey Donn:

100%.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know about that.

Trey Gerrald:

I would not hang this on my fridge.

Chelsey Donn:

I would definitely not hang this on my fridge.

Chelsey Donn:

Do you think we're ready to crown Mariana?

Trey Gerrald:

I think I am, yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

All right, let's crown her.

VOICEOVER:

The Queens are Tabulating.

Trey Gerrald:

Are you ready?

Chelsey Donn:

I'm ready.

VOICEOVER:

Total Score!

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] My god Trey.

Trey Gerrald:

Wow.

Chelsey Donn:

All right, Trey is holding up three crowns and I'm holding up one crown.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay, I'm, I'm holding up one crown because I just lost my trust of Mariana

Chelsey Donn:

I just didn't like the fact that she was being such a big bully and I think that her

Chelsey Donn:

I also think TMI with the epilogue and I just, I don't think it has any impact on

Chelsey Donn:

I would have to do a lot more research and a lot more deeper digging to find out a

Chelsey Donn:

Uh, that's why I gave Mariana one crown.

Chelsey Donn:

How about you?

Chelsey Donn:

Why did you give Mariana three crowns?

Chelsey Donn:

I'm surprised.

Trey Gerrald:

I went with three because it is a little middle of the road.

Trey Gerrald:

I, I think that Mariana's.

Trey Gerrald:

Um, lack of anger management is like a little muddying.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

But I did think that the picture they painted of the store is sort of how I

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And I don't have a judgment call on that.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean it's like, you know, it's a year round costume shop.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

But, uh, I don't know, it wasn't humorous, I, I didn't like how it turned dark

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Mariana mentioning the Army Na- Navy store across the street because

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, um, I could also check at the Army Navy store, just as like

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So I went with three 'cause ultimately it's middle of the

Trey Gerrald:

I feel more negatively about Mariana than I do about Abracadabra and so I said three.

Chelsey Donn:

For sure.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

Completely agree.

Trey Gerrald:

Awesome.

Chelsey Donn:

That was great.

Chelsey Donn:

I didn't, I did look through these reviews and I, I, I passed Mariana,

Chelsey Donn:

This was great, Trey.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god.

Chelsey Donn:

Do you have a phone call to make?

Trey Gerrald:

Sorry, I, um, someone just keeps calling me and asking me if I like scary movies.

Trey Gerrald:

It's really weird.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

I told 'em I'm recording a podcast, he'll have to wait.

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs] Alright my Queen, we've reached the most regal portion of our show.

Chelsey Donn:

Who are you inducting, Trey for-

VOICEOVER:

My Royal Highness.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay, so I decided to induct the person who created this costume

Trey Gerrald:

Kevin Williamson is an actor writer who wrote the screenplay for Scream, Scream 2, Scream

Trey Gerrald:

Kevin Williamson also wrote I Know What You Did Last Summer, I Still

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

Dawson's Creek-

Chelsey Donn:

Oh wow.

Trey Gerrald:

The Faculty, Teaching Mrs.

Trey Gerrald:

Tingle, The Following and The Vampire Diaries.

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

So, okay-

Chelsey Donn:

So successful.

Trey Gerrald:

Kevin Williamson...

Trey Gerrald:

I know, Kevin Williamson and I have the same exact birthday, March 14th, same

Trey Gerrald:

He is from North Carolina, I'm from South Carolina as you all know from our last week's episode.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Kevin Williamson went to East Carolina University, I went to Coastal

Chelsey Donn:

Lot of synchronicity.

Chelsey Donn:

I think that you guys need to link up.

Trey Gerrald:

God, I wish, anyway, I love Kevin Williamson, I love...

Trey Gerrald:

famously, I know too much trivia, so I just need to keep this short, but-

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

They famously wrote the screenplay to Scream, which was called

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

He went away to a cabin and just like wrote the whole thing.

Trey Gerrald:

There's this sequence in the movie, the first one where Sydney is locked inside the car, but

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my god.

Trey Gerrald:

Locks just keep popping open and so she's-

Chelsey Donn:

That's so scary.

Trey Gerrald:

But that was from an MFA, like, short film that he wrote.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh wow.

Trey Gerrald:

Repurpose Queen, we love that.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Also, Scream became such a huge bidding war before it even went into

Trey Gerrald:

And off the top of his head, completely pitched Dawson's Creek, fully with no, just

Trey Gerrald:

He just was in this meeting and was like, "Well, I have to say something," and-

Chelsey Donn:

'Cause they were like, they were just like, "Do you got anything else?"

Chelsey Donn:

And he was just like-

Trey Gerrald:

They're like, "Do you have any ideas for a TV show?"

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

And Kevin grew up on a creek and like had a crush on the girl

Chelsey Donn:

Stop.

Trey Gerrald:

Dawson's Creek

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

I know, amazing.

Chelsey Donn:

That's amazing.

Trey Gerrald:

I just love him, I love everything that he's done.

Trey Gerrald:

Obviously Scream like revitalized the entire horror genre in the 90s and, um, I just really

Chelsey Donn:

He gets it.

Trey Gerrald:

All of his characters are very rich.

Trey Gerrald:

Um, so I'm inducting Kevin Williamson because, I mean-

Chelsey Donn:

Because of course.

Trey Gerrald:

We just really need a lot of entertainment always and, uh, I appreciate the

Chelsey Donn:

[laughs]

Trey Gerrald:

I induct you, Kevin Williamson as My Royal Highness.

Chelsey Donn:

I love that.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm so happy I know all of that now because I just, I love someone who, I mean, really what

Chelsey Donn:

I know that now.

Trey Gerrald:

And Vampire Dairies.

Chelsey Donn:

And Vampire...

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, wow, that's so cool.

Chelsey Donn:

I love that.

Chelsey Donn:

Anyway.

Trey Gerrald:
