In this week's episode Daria and Jenny are recapping 2019’s The Personal History of David Copperfield starring Dev Patel, Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi and some many more brilliant cast members. While technically not a movie set in Regency England (oops the internet lied to us and we were too lazy to double check), this movie is a joyful romp and a beautiful cinematic experience from director Armando Iannucci. After last week’s recommendation from Bre, we both read The Worst Guy by Kate Canterbary and it lived up to all our expectations!! This book had so many of our favorite tropes and truly three dimensional characters.  We all talk about how excited we are for Wednesday’s premiere of The Last Kingdom.

In this week's episode Daria and Jenny are recapping the three part miniseries Death Comes to Pemberley with pod friend HEAapologist aka Bre! DCTP is a murder mystery, Regency style, that takes place in the lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy and his wife, Elizabeth (nee Bennet), six years after the events of Pride and Prejudice. This three part BBC miniseries is not just a murder mystery, but also gives us a look into the many different kinds of relationships and love that exist - like the new love blooming between Henry and Georgiana, love that has stood the test of time between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, love that finds its way in the sometimes fraught but always fun relationship between Wickham and Lydia. And most importantly, the love and friendship between Darcy and Lizzie, that once again endures through the trials and tribulations put on them by her family.  We were so excited to have Bre on the podcast to listen to all of her thoughts on Darcy, Lizzie, Mrs. Bennet's heart palpitations and what an absolute asshole Wickham continues to be! We also talk about our book of the week, Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop, with honorable mentions to Kate Canterbary's Worst Guy and Sara Whitney's soon to be released second chance romance, Tempting Fate.  Bre recommends checking out the comedy series, Murderville, starring Will Arnett, with some great guests including Conan O'Brien, Annie Murphy and Ken Jeong.  Don't forget to vote in the Darcy Bracket on Twitter and Instagram!  You can find Bre on Twitter @HEAapologist!

This week on Hotel Vicarious, the Countdown to Bridgerton has begun! Daria and Jenny are back from break and we are talking about Jerusha Hess’s 2013 romp, Austenland! Based on the novel by Shannon Hale. Austenland follows the story of single 30-something Jane Hayes, a self confirmed Jane Austen superfan and Mr. Darcy aficionado, who spends her life savings to spend a week in an immersive Austen experience in the English countryside.  Austenland is a ridiculous fun romcom with a swoon worthy cast (Keri Russel! JJ Feilds! Ricky Whittle!), a charming love story and the scene stealer herself, the ever delightful Jennifer Coolidge. Join us as we recap the movie, talking through our favorite parts, the scenes that made us side-eye and everything in between. Jenny and Daria also talk about the new section of the podcast, Book of the Week - and the inaugural piece of work is Elena Armas’s The Spanish Love Deception. A book both of us read in less than 24 hours because this delicious slow burn Enemies to Lovers/Fake Dating romcom had such amazing tension, and was so steamy…we couldn’t put it down!  We also talk about how we have a new VIP Discord group if you want to talk to us! And our Mr Darcy bracket starts shortly, so keep your eyes out for the first round coming soon on our socials! As always, please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

This week on Hotel Vicarious, Daria and Jenny   Have finally arrived at the Witcher’s finale episode. And while much of this show brought to fruition the set up from season 1, there has been just as much set up for season 3 and that’s to come! We’ve got found families, sacrifices, surprises and even treason in this final episode. All in all, we were pleased with Witcher Season 2 and it will be interesting to see how everything plays out next season!  Jenny and Daria also talk about Emily Henry’s books, Beach Read and People You Meet on Vacation. As well as Guillermo Del Toro’s Nightmare Alley, which leads into a tangent about books and movies we will read/watch over and over (Inception!) and those we would rather forget we ever read/saw to begin with (A Little Life). The big reveal is however the countdown to Bridgerton that starts February 24th after Jenny and Daria go on a one week hiatus.

This week on Hotel Vicarious, Daria and Jenny deal with a doozy of an episode - Witcher season 2 is drawing closer to its conclusion and we're getting hit with all the big moments: deaths, births, betrayals, quirky odd couples who deal in information. There's a lot to take in and not a lot of time left in the season! Will Yennefer really betray Geralt to get her powers back? Will Jaskier pop back up? And honestly, who is funding Rience's hunt because this guy is getting annoying. We also talk about Showtime's Yellowjackets and how downright creepy it is - and how much Daria loves it.  Also, is anyone else having trouble accepting just how soon February is?  Just us?  Anyway...

As we head toward the finale, the episodes just seem to get more dense and we are here for it! We're introduced to a new villian named Rience (rhymes with science!) and his accomplice, Lydia. We also get to see Yennefer and Jaskier play out one of Daria's favorite tropes as they continue to be on the run in Oxenfurt. Vesemir and Triss confirm Ciri's blood can make the Witcher mutagen/serum/poison but Ciri has some high demands in order for them to use it. And our boy Geralt finds out that Yennefer did not die in the Battle of Sodden Hill which leads to a delicious conversation between both of Yen's exes.  We also chat about the wild snowstorm that hit Jenny this past weekend, how Daria does not enjoy winter as dog owner, but there is a new season of Queer Eye and RuPauls' Drag Race and that is making Daria's icy walks way more tolerable! Jenny also reminds listeners to check out Katee Robert's newest release, Electric Idol.  As always, please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

Well pals we are officially at the half way point in The Witcher Season 2! In this episode we get to see our girl Triss arrive at Kaer Morhen, having been summoned by Vesemir to help Ciri with her chaos and also to help her because he knows a bunch of unemotional trained monster killers aren’t going to know what to do with a teenage girl. And we are here for it!!! We also get one reunion we’ve been waiting on for ages now: Yennafer and Jaskier finally meet again as he helps her and Cahir escape to Nilfgaard but not before we hear Jaskier’s heartbroken ballad “Burn Butcher Burn” as he confirms what we all knew to be true - Jaskier had his heartbroken by Geralt on that mountain in Season 1. We also spend a lot of time talking about Daria almost being finished Succession and how much we love sad boy Kendall Roy, and how Jenny enjoyed Ghostbusters: Afterlife!  As always, please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

In this episode we talk Witcher Season 2, Episode 2 end it really felt like a pretty dark episode as well as setting up for most of the season. We give our thoughts on Fringilla and Yennafer’s encounter with the Elves as well as coming to the realization that Geralt (after meeting his Witcher Dad Vesimir and his other Witcher brothers) is the emo sullen one. But we’re here for it. And we talk about Ciri coming out of her shell at Kaer Morhen, as well as how the book/game fan favorite Eskel just really didn’t do much for us. We also talk about how we’re spending our holidays, Daria’s book recommendation for Ali Hazelwood’s The Love Hypothesis and Jenny admits that she still loves the slightly problematic Leo after watching Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up.  And as always, please Subscribe/Rate/Review!
