A very special on-location episode: Raquel Stecher, Jessica Pickens and James talk about our most anticipated first-time watches from the 2018 Turner Classic Movies Film Festival in Los Angeles, California. We move on to tank tops, golden age Hollywood dinner parties, and attempt to eliminate "classics" we'd like to see taken down a peg while elevating something else that deserves more attention.
