And the awards go to…

[Warning: This episode contains some minor spoilers]

Can you believe this year will be the 90th Academy Awards show? NINETY! Over most of this time, The Awards have been a pretty boring celebration between (generally) rich, white, powerful people giving themselves a pat on the back and snubbing more deserving individuals/films. However, this year in particular we saw the entire landscape of Hollywood shift from more representation, to calling out shitty people in the industry, to an influx of some really great Indie movies. Suffice to say things are looking to be changing and it’s never been a better time to be a movie fan! Join Tuong La and Movie Bingers Leslie Cserepy, Taylor Fleming, and Sarah Finn as we celebrate and rank our favorite movies of 2017.

Lovable. Relatable. Dysfunctional. They are just like us!

TV families come in all shapes and sizes but we love them all the same for making us laugh and cry on the small screen at home. They make us forget about our own lives (and to be honest – take a break from our own families) and bring us to a world of pure entertainment. While there are many great families on television, there are some that blow the rest out of the water! Join Tuong La and his PodCavern Family Taylor Fleming, Axandre Lemours, and Reba Ollerhead as we rank the very best TV families.

We love to hear your thoughts! Send us a list of your favorite TV families and ideas for new Top 5 episodes here – – > ranked@podcavern.com

Ground Rules

  • As long as the family has it’s own TV show (adapted) it’s fair game. Whether it came from a book or movie first does not matter
  • Nominations can’t be “so close it’s like family” ie FireFly, Dunder Mifflin
  • If adopted into the family it counts (ie Brian Griffin – Family Guy) or is somehow a very core member (ie Geoffrey – Fresh Prince)
