June was especially entertaining in this one. I just re-listened to the Catwoman episode the other day, and I don't think I've appreciated until now what a genuinely unique perspective she brings to the show. She does exactly what a good critic is supposed to do--she tries to like the movies she's watching. Even on a show built on watching terrible movies, she doesn't want them to be terrible. She tries to understand what they were going for, where they went wrong, and how they could have avoided it.
June's awesome, is basically what I'm trying to say.
I heartily concur. I love June's point of view on any/all of her podcast appearances, HDTM? especially, for all the reasons you just listed. When the guys get very passionate when dissecting aspects of a film to the point where they begin stepping on June's observations and not letting her finish voicing an opinion, it will absolutely get me antsy. She is very, very
patient, and she gets in there with the best of them to be heard for sure. She's also dealing with some real characters in the forms of Paul and Jason.
The guys were understandably riffing at the top their lungs about this ridiculous film starring a famous boob-haver, so it pleased me to no end that the guys consistently and conscientiously gave the floor back to June after acknowledging having interrupted her to manically and effectively tag up the many batshit moments of the film with their side-splitting commentary.
June had some great stuff to say about Barb Wire, and she actually made me want to watch Catwoman because of her appreciation for Berry's feline-inspired physicality.
