March 20th, 2016

Mel Evans is joined by Jessica Kent and Rachel Grandi to discuss more modern "adaptations" of Jane Austen's works.  This episode, they plod their way through Helen Fielding's body dysmorphic novel "Bridget Jones's Diary." Is this a true Jane Austen adaptation or is it a martini-fueled fan letter to the BBC "Pride and Prejudice" mini-series?  We're not judging, we just want Bridget to love herself.

An Hour with Your Ex is a Denver-based podcast hosted by Mark Colomb and Mel Evans. "Bridget Jones's Diary" is a 1996 novel by Helen Fielding made into a terrible 2001 film starring an actress Mel cares not to name.  This last bit is for SEO.

An Hour With Your Ex: Pride and Podcasts - “Lost in Austen”

November 12th, 2015

Mel Evans is joined by Rachel Grandi and Jessica Kent to discuss the 2008 miniseries "Lost in Austen." A regular British gal finds herself in the pages of Pride and Prejudice and immediately messes the whole book up. Critics said it was so saucy, you'd almost think it was a BBC miniseries instead of ITV. Did the ladies agree? Or are they more excited for the Nora Ephron/Carrie Brownstein-penned movie version? And how do you even cast another Mr. Darcy?

The Bruce Willis action/comedy/trip to Italy Hudson Hawk is the pick this week. CJ Tuor from Hitchcocktails (Friday's 10pm, The Annoyance Theater in Chicago) stopped by to share his affection for this film. Mark may have read the novelization of the film as a kid.

April 24th, 2015

We emerge from our bunker to talk about the Netflix original series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" from Robert Carlock and Tina Fey. Indiana, Pinot Noir, living in the big city, and surviving trauma are all things that we talk about. Is this a worthy successor to "30 Rock" or something even better?

An Hour With Your Ex Pride and Podcasts: “Clueless” (1995)

April 3rd, 2015

Mel Evans is joined by Rachel Grandi and Jessica Kent to talk Amy Heckerling's 1995 movie "Clueless."  Is this the best modern adaptation of any Jane Austen novel ever?  We think it might be.  How does it hold up to the other adaptations of classics of the 1990s? Pretty well, we think. We are also lucky enough to have a special segment where Miss Julie Brown talks about playing Ms. Stoeger in the film and the TV series as well as some on-set memories.  Check out her website at www.juliebrown.com and her eBay store (thehomecomingqueen) for some dope DVDs and signed goodies.  Thank you so much, Miss Julie Brown!

An Hour With Your Ex 113: Back To The Future

March 27th, 2015

Back To The Future reference. This week we go back to a better time. It's morning in America, right? Hold on. Were the 1980's not as awesome as that quiz made you think they were? At least the 1950's were awesome, right? No? There were horrible problems then? But then what are those baby boomers so excited about all the time? 


Where we are going you don't need nostalgia. Mark Colomb probably loves this movie too much. Mel Evans sort of remembers it. Lots of questions and comments about Back to the Future 2 which we didn't watch this show.
